Anna & Ben’s Late Summer Wedding at Gaynes Park

Anna & Ben’s gorgeous wedding day was held at Gaynes Park, an exclusive barn venue in the Essex countryside. Ben was a groomsman at Nicky & Paul’s wedding and when they saw Chris & I there, they knew they wanted us to capture their day too (I was there as a second photographer to Chris). Their day was super relaxed as the girls used the beautiful light in The Orangery to have their bridal hair and make-up perfected before heading the The Apple Loft, whilst the gents headed to The Coach House to freshen up. Anna looked simply elegant in a ruched chiffon gown with her tousled into curls and a pretty vintage pinks bouquet. Ben looked super sharp in a dark grey suit with plum-toned tie which matched perfectly with the bridesmaids dresses. Gaynes Park is really lovely and The Long Walk is particularly lovely for a bride to walk to gather her thoughts among the pretty gardens before heading through the Walled Garden to The Orangery to get wed. The Mill Barn looked relaxed pretty with vintage books, miniature bottles and flowers in soft pinks, lilacs and white. I loved the simplicity of Anna & Ben’s day, surrounding by their most favourite people who ensured they had the loveliest of days!
