Put on those dancing shoes • Maidens Barn Wedding • Essex Wedding Photographer • Documentary Wedding Photography

This was a Wedding full of emotion! The tears flowed from receiving gifts during getting ready, then walking down the aisle, into speeches and they continued into the first dance. 

We were weather watching all morning whilst make up and hair were being done. But after walking down the aisle in the beautiful fairy lit room no one batted an eye as to whether the rain was on or off. It stayed off for the confetti line though, where Emily got a mouth full of confetti! Throw it up not at!!!

During the speeches I kept my eye on the light - just before they started I was suddenly blinded by this golden glow, I wondered what it was - we hadn’t seen it in a while but it was a setting sun!!! Speeches began and luckily they were the perfect length, straight afterwards we ran outside to a field behind the barn. Many people think once the sun has set that’s it, you've lost your chance, not correct my friend! It’s after the sun has set that the best light comes into play, you have about 5 minutes when the sky burns, and that’s exactly what we had. After a stormy day it was the most fierce burn - absolutely stunning! I was so pleased to get these shots as the other couple shots had to be under cover earlier in the day due to the rain. 

We moved with a skip in our step into cutting the cake and first dance and then the real dancing started! What a party! I absolutely love when all the guests get involved on the dance floor, everyone lets loose and that creates some really fun shots. I always say if you want your guests to dance, you need to dance too, and both Bride and Groom got completely involved! It’s always such a great end to your day and makes me leave really happy! I loved capturing Sean and Emily’s day, I hope they have the same amount of fun in the rest of their lives together as they did on their wedding day.
