Roberta and Dean’s Friern Manor Wedding
Roberta and Dean had chosen to tie the knot at Friern Manor, a really pretty venue in just outside Brentwood in Essex. We’ve photographed here a few times and it was a pleasure to be back. The gorgeous Georgian manor house is a perfect backdrop to our photos, and if you’re lucky you can get a view of some spectacular sunsets.
Roberta was getting ready here and on arrival we were met by our favourite hair and make-up artists, Angela from RKW Hair and Elizabeth Joseph Love. We love working with these guys for a numbers of reasons, but most of all because we know their work is fabulous and they always have our bride ready in plenty of time, giving us time to take beautiful bridal portraits before the ceremony. True to form Roberta was ready nice and early and looking stunning, which meant we could get some beautiful bridal portraits using the reflections in the room.
The light and airy conservatory set the stage for Roberta and Dean’s wedding ceremony, they then moved through to the coaching stables for their reception, where the garden provided a perfect setting for photos.
One of the great things about Roberta and Dean’s big day was the mix of traditions from the UK and also Lithuania, where Roberta’s family is from. We saw breaking of the bread and an amazing Tree Cake (see the photos below)!
It was a really great day and topped off by one of those spectacular sunsets I mentioned earlier. Big congratulations Roberta and Dean! xx
