Groom prep images
My blog post on the wonderful Colchester Town hall wedding of Zoe & Paul.
The wedding of Zoe and Paul was a blast. I was providing second shoot coverage for my friend and fellow photographer, Darren from SureShotz photography.
This was my first spring wedding of 2017 & the weather didn’t let us down. Splendid sunshine all day long. Essex wedding photographers are spoilt for choice for stunning wedding venues & this Colchester town hall wedding is another little gem. Full of character and tradition, it really is a splendid venue.
I started the wedding journey covering some candid shots of the Groom, best man and the handsome little ring bearer. This little lad rocked the wedding images and there are some classic images from him that gave everyobne that “aahhh” moment.
Colchester town hall wedding
Groom prep shots always help to bring the first part of a wedding story to fruition and although a small affair, it lends itself well to a relaxed style.
Bridal prep on the other hand is where the pressure cooker is - so much to do and time is always a premium for wedding photographers…I’m sure Darren was having a fun time though 🙂
Next stop, the start of the Colchester town hall wedding….Away we go!
At this point, the colchester town hall wedding was ready to begin. We had the grooms men and now the bridal party had arrived. Zoe and her girls looked wonderful and ready to rock - Ladies always carry themselves with an air of authority, but Zoe was quite rightly feeling the nerves and as normal the wedding photographer was there to capture those tearful moments….
With Zoe and Paul through their emotional rollercoaster and now happily married, it was time to continue this Colchester town hall wedding, with some images from the venue itself. There are some beautiful opportunities to consider for photographs at Colchester town hall and although we had a good 45 mins, we had a lot of requested group images to do, which were mainly undertaken by Darren.

After the wonderful wedding ceremony, Zoe & Paul went off to Colchester Castle for some images of just themsleves. We took a few images there and then decided to photograph them on their way back through the high street of Colchester, which raised some charming comments from passers by..

It was a wonderful Colchester town hall wedding for Zoe and Paul. I had, as usual a great day. There was lots of emotion that really conveyed true feeling. It’s why I love being a wedding photographer. Making your mark on someones most precious and private day with friends and family is something I take very seriously and equally love every minute of it. Wishing both Zoe and Paul a wonderful life as Husband and Wife together.
The final images of the wedding reception continue below…..
I hope you have enjoyed this wedding post as much as I had photographing Zoe and Pauls day. Feel free to comment below 🙂
