Bocking Wedding Photographer


brides arrival


Bryony and Spenser had themselves a very personal and decorative wedding in the garden of Bryonys mum house. Tucked away down a single lane track in the heart of Bocking in Essex I found myself gawping in awe at this stunningly designed house and even more once I stepped into the rear garden where the ceremony and reception were to take place.

A beautiful arrangement of chairs and wooden arch was set up alongside the garden riverside in the most stunning way with a romantic aisle set out with pampas grass runners all the way along leading up to the ceremonial area. Further down into the garden I was introduced to the 4 hat tipi tent and miniature bell tents for glam ping which these guys had purchased ready to set up their own business which looked incredible.

Lots of space in the tipi, a bar, the dance floor and the most edible of wedding cakes. Between the tipi and the bell tents there were so many activities set up ready for the guests to enjoy, miniature golf, a bouncy castle, face painting, a coconut shy, giant Jenga, hook-a-duck and also shuffle boards. Needless to say I was super excited to witness the day unfold. 

So, after heading back to the house to begin photographing bridal preparations Bryony was in the seat having her make up applied by the insanity talented Bernice Beaumont whist the bridesmaids were having hairs done in turn by family friend Megan.

I did notice one trend about this wedding as soon as I entered the house, this was that it seemed like a crutch party as I had never been to a wedding that had 3 people on crutches!!! Never the less everyone was super pumped for Bryony and Spenser and did an amazing job on the day. 

As the guests began to arrive and the festival wristbands were being handed out, seats were being taken and Bryony was becoming ever so more flustered. Once the dress was on everything calmed and the nerves faded into excitement. The moment was here where Bryony and Spenser were to be married!! The ceremony itself was a humanist ceremony performed by Claire Denis and it explained about the couples loves and accomplishments together as well as their enjoyment of tequila rose! Now the party could really begin, confetti onto the lawn straight into canapés garden games and dancing!
