The Thurrock Hotel is a beautiful wedding venue tucked away in Essex, just off the M25. Christine and Connor were married there on a cool day, early this year. I arrived early for the preparations and was able to photograph both the boys and the girls! The ceremony that followed was short but sweet, an intimate service filled with family and close friends in a simple design. The wedding colour scheme was red and white: the iconic colours of love and marriage, which couldn’t be more perfect for a couple who are clearly brilliant together. Watching them, you can truly see that they are the embodiment of happiness!
We wandered outside as a group to take photographs by the fountain in the gardens, which looked beautiful, before returning back inside to a small ballroom. A brief period of interval followed by the wedding meal passed quickly with some beautiful words from the groom and others: sharing with the other guests just how wonderful this marriage was to be!
The reception ran late into the evening: it featured dancing, music, buffet, a bar and even casino tables! The room was soon abuzz with evening guests enjoying themselves and well-wishing the happy couple! Enjoy this selection of images from their day. I was honoured to capture their Thurrock Hotel wedding photography Essex.
