About The Day at Le Talbooth
Firstly, I’d like to start by congratulating Andrew and Vicky on a beautiful wedding day and to wish them a long and happy marriage.
The day started at Maison Talbooth – a luxury country house hotel in Essex. Part of the Milsom Hotel group who also run other well known wedding venues such as Hengrave Hall and Kesgrave Hall.
With the gorgeous autumn sun shining, the drone was soon up in the sky, capturing the “Constable countryside” and Dedham Vale.
Established in 1969, the 19th century modernised house in Essex has 12 uniquely designed bedrooms named after the famous poets of recent centuries. The team at Maison Talbooth were extremely polite and very helpful throughout the entire day.
Guests began to arrive as I wondered the grounds shooting the venue’s beauty.
It was a very intimate ceremony overlooking the garden, with less than 20 close friends and family.
The wedding party made their way to Le Talbooth restaurant – a truly picturesque venue with the River Stour running alongside its gardens. Meanwhile Andrew, Vicky, James Davidson (James Davidson Photography) and I made our way to a nearby jetty, for the happy couple to board a small boat which transported them to the venue. This was an exciting opportunity to get some romantic shots of Andrew and Vicky as they headed off downstream.
With glasses of champagne at the ready, the guests eagerly awaited for the arrival of the bride and groom.
After their spectacular arrival, the newly weds joined their guests in the gardens for canapés and sushi. James and I took the bride and groom away from their guests briefly to capture some romantic shots using the lush greenery and, of course, the River Stour.
The first dance followed, before guests took their seats in the Wealers Room of Le Talbooth Restaurant, in preparation for the wonderful speeches and exquisite three course meal that followed.
A beautiful day hosted at two stunning venues and with the sun in the sky – what more could you ask for?
