Essex is a home county Northeast of London. As a wedding photographer I have found a very queer liking for Essex and it is not without reason. There is a certain old world British charm associated with this place that makes it stand out. Essex occupies the eastern portion of the pre-England Kingdom of Essex. Large swathes of the county which are closest to London are part of the Metropolitan Green Belt, which prohibits urban development in its green spaces.
The name Essex originates in the Anglo-Saxon period of the Early Middle Ages and has its root in the Old English Ēastseaxe (i.e. the “East Saxons”), the eastern kingdom of the Saxons. Originally Essex occupied territory to the north of the River Thames. May be it’s the legendary heritage associated with Essex which stirs wedding photography as an art in me. Be it the sprawling Hedingham castle, the beautiful 17th century Audley End House or the blissful church of St Peter-on-the-wall, Essex delights me always. And it is through this delight that I am inspired in capturing the moments I think people would cherish the most.
The buildings range from the 7th century Saxon church of St Peter-on-the-Wall, to the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club which was the United Kingdom’s entry in the “International Exhibition of Modern Architecture” held at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City in 1932. All this and more makes Essex a preferred location for weddings and wedding photography.
It’s a beautiful county and I’ve been fortunate to be a Wedding Photographer in Essex on quite a few occasions. Weddings are the most important day in the lives of the couple and to be a part of someone’s most important day is a great privilege. I’ve not only had a chance to travel to beautiful towns and villages in Essex for events but have also met some lovely people. Please find time to peruse the photographs I have attached below. I hope you’ll like them.
