The Thurrock hotel wedding of Charlotte and Ashley
The Thurrock hotel in Aveley, Essex was the wedding venue chosen to celebrate this intimate wedding of Charlotte and Ashley, and boy did they have the weather on their side at the Thurrock hotel. It was a very hot day in early August to say the least, and in my infinite wisdom I decided to wear a lovely heat absorbing black shirt…Not my wisest move!
Charlotte and Ash were the perfect bride & groom, complemented with some great friends and family, left me in no doubt that this was going to be a great wedding.
Bridal prep images were taken by myself & the groom prep images were taken by my good friend and fellow wedding photographer Darren (Dal to his friends) of sureshotz photography. So if you ever book me and require a second photographer, chances are he will rock up with me, so be prepared for some humour filled banter between the pair of us. It happens after knowing him for nigh on 40 years!
Anyway on to this wedding post and some of the wonderful images captured during the course of the day. The following images are select ones taken from both the Bridal & Groom prep.
With both bridal and groom prep done, it was time to get to the ceremony room. What follows is a select few images from the rest of the day. It was a joy to be part of this day and one that I will remember for many reasons, but ultimately because of two very special people and the family and friends that made it unique to them.
