Kings Oak Wedding // Angie & Matt
Matt and Angie got in touch with me last summer after seeing the photos I took of their friends wedding, but I didn’t meet them until a few weeks before their own big day, on a blisteringly hot July afternoon. Fast forward a few weeks, on a slightly wetter day, Angie and Matt got married in front of a select group of family and friends at Kings Oak, in the heart of Epping Forest. The day started with both bride and groom, plus family and friends, at The White House in nearby Ongar. Despite getting ready in the same house, the couple didn’t see each other on the morning, a combination of clever planning and on account of the house being so massive. You would be hard pushed to find a happier, more excited bride than Angie, who kept breaking into spontaneous dancing at the thought of marrying Matt. She was literally jumping up and down with excitement. The rain didn’t dampen anybody’s spirits, and bright yellow sunflowers provided a good splash of summer colour to proceedings. On to Kings Oak where Matt was waiting, and the couple said their vows before celebrating with champagne. Angie and Matt donned their wellies, and we took advantage of a break in the rain to head into the woods for some portraits. Everything looked extra vivid and lush, due to the downpours. Dinner was served, and followed by some pretty teary speeches. Cake, coffee and a photobooth preceded the dance floor action, which was pretty wild. Angie and Matt will soon by moving to New Zealand to set up home there. Their wedding was a great leaving party for them, a whole heap of fun, and I am very happy I got to photograph it for them.
