Marianna and Phil – a beautiful blessing in Epping Forest

December 24, 2010

Marianna and Phil were married in a beautiful ceremony a couple of weeks ago and photographed then by a good friend and fellow photographer. However, Marianna and Phil were keen to have another ceremony that was more intimate and with special significance to them. This unique blessing was held in All Saint’s Church in Epping Uplands, and myself and the vicar were the only other people present. It was very moving.
We then had time to play!
We explored the area around the church for photos and then found places in the countryside around Epping. We had a wonderful time, with Marianna and Phil feeling all warm and cosy inside, despite the freezing temperature.

You've got some great images here. I particularly like the capture of the bride glancing down in front of the cart with twigs in the background. Great capture! Also I must agree that I love the portraits you've captured in the woods.

What a great idea to have another ceremony just in privacy. I bet you had a lot of fun shooting the couple without having to worry about the time. Anyway, your pictures are stunning. A beautiful late fall/winter wedding!
