Rachel and Alex's big day at Leez Priory

Photographing Alex and Rachel’s wedding at Leez Priory in Essex was a great day. The weather was perfect and everyone had a fantastic time.  This was the first time I had photographed a Fireworks and sparklers at a Leez Priory weddingwedding at Leez Priory but I am hoping to return, it really is a fantastic wedding venue. For those that don’t know, Leez Priory is a 16th-century mansion near Chelmsford in Essex, England. The civil parish boundary between Felsted and Great Waltham crosses the priory, so that it partially lies in Felsted and partially in Great Waltham.

The day started photographing the boys getting ready, they had stayed over at Leez Priory the night before the wedding in one of the cottages. After finishing up with the chaps it was onto photographing the beautiful architecture, made up of the main house and what I can only describe as a large tower.

As I mentioned earlier, the weather was perfect which allowed for the wedding service to be held outside in the grounds.  The guests were seated and then the bridesmaids walked across the lawn shortly followed by Rachel and her dad. The arched floral display looked amazing as did the bouquets.

After the service the guests were served canapés and drinks on the lawn whist I got started on shooting the formal photos and then it was onto the wedding breakfast. After everyone had enjoyed a lovely meal it was on to shoot the bride and groom photos, all of which were in the grounds of  Leez Priory. 

The evening was mainly spent outside as it was still warm and there was a BBQ, music and beer, what more could you ask for! Alex and Rachel even had their first dance on the lawn which was awesome.

The finale to the night was a firework show,  and what a show it was!
