Suzie and Nahum’s wedding at the Reid Rooms in Essex was a day filled with love, laughter, and meaningful moments. As a recommended supplier & Essex Wedding Photographer, I had the privilege of capturing their special day and witnessing the genuine connection between this truly extraordinary couple.
From the moment I met Suzie and Nahum, I knew I was in for something extraordinary. Their warmth and kindness were contagious, and it was clear that their family and friends shared the same spirit. The Reid Rooms provided the perfect backdrop for their beautiful outdoor ceremony. Colourful ribbons, lovingly placed by their friends, adorned the venue inside & out. To add a personal touch, Suzie’s talented mother baked the wedding cake, complete with a tie in to their love of walking the UK’s most beautiful paths, with space to add their next adventure!
One of the highlights of the day was the celebrant-led ceremony. These intimate and personal ceremonies hold a special place in my heart, and Suzie and Nahum’s was no exception. Led by the wonderful celebrant, Carol, the ceremony was an emotional and heartfelt experience. From the very start, it was evident that every detail was thoughtfully planned. Both parents escorted their children down the aisle, meeting in the middle before walking together as a symbol of unity. The ceremony included touching readings from Nahum’s step parents and a heartfelt reading from Suzie’s dad. It truly was a family affair.
After exchanging their vows, Suzie and Nahum led their guests to the courtyard, where they celebrated with their favourite cocktails, garden games, and family photos. The atmosphere was filled with joy and laughter as everyone came together to honour the newlyweds. I also absolutely loved the inclusion of speeches from not just the men but also Suzie’s sister, Nahum’s mother, and Susie herself!
As the evening progressed, the celebration reached new heights with the incredible live music from Colonel Spanky’s Love ensemble. The dance floor was alive with energy and excitement. However, before we joined the festivities, we sneaked away to capture some breathtaking photos in the enchanting golden hour sun. The resulting images were simply magical and showcased the love and happiness shared between Suzie and Nahum. Also – that veil!!
Suzie and Nahum’s wedding was everything I adore about weddings and so much more. The genuine connection they shared, the blending of their families, and the focus on creating a day that was inclusive of everyone made it truly extraordinary. It was an absolute honour for me to be their wedding photographer, capturing the moments that will be cherished for a lifetime.
