Beautiful Friern Manor Country hotel in Essex once again shines for wedding couple Katie & Billy

Friern Manor country hotel is set in perfectly landscaped grounds and provides wedding couples with everything they need for a perfect day.

I love how couples put their own stamp on wedding venues in Essex. It certainly makes my job interesting and this was no different. The wedding details were well thought through and you could see Katie & Billy (Bride & Groom) spent plenty of time planning for their big day.

The day started at pace as most do with a hive of activity from loyal friends and family ensuring that the day goes well for the couple. It wasn't long before the bubbly was flowing to calm the nerves and the gorgeous attire was adorned.

It was an emotional day all round and everyone waiting patiently for the couple to join them in the beautifully decorated ceremony room where the couple tied the knot.

The weather was very kind to us on the day and we basked in sunshine as tension and nerves in the ceremony room turned to a more relaxed fun filled atmosphere as the couple became Mr and Mrs. There were a good few children present at the wedding and this always provides fantastic memories from the day.

The evening was every bit as exciting as the morning and everyone was gearing up for a party to celebrate. Straight after the cutting of the cake, we moved onto the dancefloor for the first dance. From there, the DJ took over and played some classics to get the guests up on their feet.

The evening guests were treated to a tasty fish bar which was impeccably displayed by the staff at Friern Manor.

I just had one more request which I like to do for all my couples and that is to end on a high with a gorgeous last image to sum up their day. At this point, the couple are happy to move away from the craziness of the dance floor and take 5 minutes out with each other. Here's the image to wrap up their wonderful at at Friern Manor country hotel in lower Dunton road, Essex.
