In May 2022, I had the honor of photographing Shannon and Jack’s beautiful summer wedding at Gaynes Park in Essex. The couple had chosen this stunning venue because of its natural beauty and elegant style, and it did not disappoint.

This Gaynes Park summer wedding began with the girls getting ready in the Apple Loft. As you can imagine, six girls getting ready can be busy so it’s a case of knowing what you need to capture and when to give them space.
