Sophie and Dom's wedding celebration at Stock Brook Country Club

Date posted: 30 November 2017

Sophie and Dom got married in Las Vegas (which would have been a bit far for us to go!) but when they had their wedding blessing and celebration in Essex with all their family and friends, we were there to capture the happy day for them.

Although it wasn't strictly speaking a wedding day, the day had everything you would expect from a wedding. Our day started with the preparations at home - not just the bride getting ready but six bridesmaids. Even the cat managed to get in on the action.

After some shots outside the house in front of the VW camper van, it was time to head off to St Michael & All Saints Church, Roxwell, Essex to catch up with Dom and all their wedding guests.

The ceremony was full of emotion. It was clear that Sophie and Dom had huge amounts of love for each other.

After the traditional group photos in the church grounds and the confetti throwing (always a wedding highlight, we think), it was off to Stock Brook Country Club, Essex for the wedding celebration. 

The pink colour scheme continued and the room was decorated in a Las Vegas theme.
