Essex Wedding Photography at Sands, Southend On Sea – Laura & Pete

Laura and Pete chose the fun and relaxed Sands as their wedding venue, it’s great to be married by the estuary to have photos done with our famous local landmark – the Pier – in the background and on one of the hottest days of the year the water was very inviting.

The fabulous Natalie was on hand to make sure it all went well, nothing is ever too much trouble for Natalie and I cannot recommend her enough, her enthusiasm is boundless. Big thanks go out to her and the Sands team who do their utmost to make everything even more special.
Laura and the bridesmaids got ready just down the road at the Park Inn Palace Hotel, so it was great to take photos as they walked along Southend sea front to the sound of car horns and people calling out best wishes. Laura looked lovely and was so happy, showing no signs of nerves. The bridesmaids wore baby blue dresses.
Pete and the boys waited at Sands for their arrival and we did some photos of them on the walkway by the sea, they wore gorgeous blue suits and their ties complemented the bridesmaids’ dresses which really went with the seaside theme.
As always Sands looked great with the strings of pretty lights dancing above our heads as the marriage vows were read and the ceremony took place.
I got some great images of Laura and Pete on the beach, they are such a lovely couple and were happy to walk along and just be themselves in order to get some great shots. It was nice to work with Ben from Blatella again.
One of the happiest weddings I have ever photographed, (thank you for the fish and chips) and I wish them both every happiness in the future.
