Outdoor Wedding in Essex | Sophie & Oli

Outdoor Wedding in Essex 

Sophie and Oli held their outdoor wedding in Essex on Oli’s family property in Burnham-On-Crouch, overlooking a beautiful estuary. It was important to Sophie and Oli that their day be relaxed and focused on their friends and family, whom they were sharing such an intimate day with. Sophie chose a beautiful Rue De Seine gown that certainly fit the relaxed bohemian style of the wedding.  The ceremony aisle adorned with classic rugs, friends and family looking on. Sophie and Oli tied the knot in a place that was meaningful to them. An evening reception overlooking the estuary, followed by deep and poignant speeches. It was the perfect time of night. The weather turned from moody, to sunny, to rainy. We endured it all, and just as a pocket of weather gave way, we headed out over looking the estuary for some evening portraits. Sophie and Oli have such an infectious energy, it was apparent from the day I met them, but even more so when time for their first dance came. Dancing to “I believe in a thing called love” by The Darkness, and inviting everyone to join in soon after.
