What a great wedding venue! This was our first visit to Houchins in Essex and we were really impressed – beautiful location relaxed atmosphere and a table football what more could you want. From the start we knew we were really going to enjoy this wedding – I manage to score just the most amazing cooked breakfast with the groom and his mates at the coolest cafe, the food was amazing! Scott is a top barber and made sure all his ushers and best men were looking their best during their preparations at Scott’s basement barbershop. Dibbs was with Sarah who was staying at the beautiful farmhouse at Houchins, the house was alive with laughter while the girls got ready and the men hid in the kitchen.
With everybody at the wedding venue the ceremony was conducted outside in the marquee, after the wedding, Scott and Sarah enjoyed a blessing from close friends before walking down the aisle as the new Mr. and Mrs. Staines. Houchins beautiful grounds was the perfect location for many beautiful groups whilst also allowing us to disappear into the background to capture many natural shots of the wedding guests.
We were very lucky to still have the nearby fields to shoot some amazing bride and groom portraits with the Essex countryside providing a beautiful backdrop. The rest of the wedding day carried on seamlessly with a particular highlight of one of the best men ( who was a professional singer ) singing a song created just for Scott and Sarah – amazing! We hope you enjoy the pictures.
