Boatyard Restaurant wedding | Essex wedding beetle

So, this would the hottest day of the year so far?!  phew…. and I’m heading to Southend?!  Oh yes…. and so were thousands of other people.  We slowly made our way from the Park Inn Palace in Southend along the seafront to the very gorgeous Boatyard Restaurant in Leigh on Sea, for Lori’s wedding to Rich.  What a pair these are, and what a fantastic afternoon.  They decided to keep the ceremony and afternoon reception small, with a big party later on for everyone back at the hotel.  This is probably the most intimate wedding I’ve been to and it was fab, I was lending a photographic hand to the photographer today as well as ‘pootling’, as he’s a great colleague and buddy, the lovely Dominic Whiten.

Just a quick three pics from the day which won’t spoil any surprise, and I’ll blog again on this one when Dominic has shown Lori and Rich the final set.  They will be a corking set of images!  not too difficult when you have a gorgeous couple to photograph like these two 🙂
