Church & Marquee Wedding in Dunsfold, Surrey | Emma + Alex

August 09, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

I was recently asked if I photographed marquee weddings, and when looking for a ready-made blog post to send to my prospective couple, realised I haven't actually blogged one since Emily and Carl's fab wedding from 2016.  I am generally invited once or twice a year to capture a traditional church ceremony followed by a marquee wedding reception at a private home, and they're some of my favourite weddings to capture, so thought it was about time I featured one on my blog.  

Emma and Alex' special day last Summer was up there with the best of them!  Their reception was hosted by the bride's parents and beautifully managed by Jacaranda Catering.  (Just a side note if you're thinking of a marquee wedding - it's so important to choose your caterers and/or wedding planners well if you're hosting a private do without the ready-made team of an established wedding venue.)  Bridal prep also took place at the parent's home, whilst the groom and his entourage gathered at a pub local to the church.  Said entourage consisted of the Ushers, Alex' parents and their friends, so a lively affair, and one definitely worthy of a few photos.  Unable to be in two places at once, I asked my friend and fellow photographer Sue Kwiatkowska to do the honours at the pub while I captured the bridal preparations and marquee set up.

Emma and her father arrived at the church in style in a beautiful 1923 Bentley.  Sadly the classic car didn't quite make the full homeward journey, so my somewhat less impressive wheels came in handy, one of those little tales that are great fun to tell after the event!  The 170 or so guests who joined Emma and Alex for their celebrations were treated to delicious and beautifully served food by Jacaranda catering (just check out the presentation of the canapés!).  After the speeches, evening entertainment was provided by band iPop plus saxophonist, who I've since recommended several times - so full of energy and had everyone up on the dancefloor.

Emma and Alex' day was an absolute joy to capture, and I was so pleased to receive their lovely testimonial:

 

"We couldn’t have been more pleased that we chose Jenny as our wedding photographer. She was an absolute pleasure to have there on the day and made us feel completely at ease.

The photos were fantastic and she perfectly captured the happiness of the day. It was an amazing surprise that she created a wonderful slide show to music in addition to the photos and we have loved watching it with family and friends. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her! "

This May I had the pleasure of capturing another gorgeous church + marquee wedding in West Sussex, that of American bride Halley and British groom Anthony which will definitely be making it onto the blog in due course (so many blogs to write, so little time!)  And my next private marquee wedding as I write, will be in Hampshire, in September 2020 - a repeat location for me as I captured the groom's sister's wedding there at the same family home in 2015!  

If you love my style of photography whether yours is a marquee or any other kind of wedding, please do get in touch and let me know your plans!
