Crondon park with Craig and Sarah

Today’s featured big day is a winter wedding from Crondon Park in Essex, a beautiful venue surrounded by very nice golf course.  I met with Craig and Sarah back in 2014, shortly after they booked me as the wedding photographer for their special day.

After we discussed the various options, they decided that a pre wedding or engagement shoot would be a nice idea, a link to that can be found here

Crondon park offers an all in one solution so bride and grooms can get married there as well as having the wedding breakfast and reception all within the same space. The barn that the reception is held in is very impressive, a beautiful vaulted ceiling with lots of exposed timber. Venues that offer this all in one solution seem to becoming increasingly popular, it definitely seems to make for a more relaxed day as travelling is kept to a minimum.

The wedding date was the 23rd December so not just a winter wedding but a Christmas one too! With this in mind we had absolutely no idea what weather we could expect, knowing what the UK is like, it could have been anything from snow to blazing sunshine! As it turned out it was the latter and we also had what I can only describe as an incredible sunset!!

We also wanted to take some photos of the bridal car, a Rolls Royce but something a little different from the normal. This ended up with me being sat in the boot of a car driving up a bumpy road with the Rolls Royce following, the end result was worth it though.

Here a few photos from the day.
