The Wedding of Gemma & Steven | St Margarets Church & Three Rivers Golf & Country Club | Gavin Conlan Essex Wedding Photographer |

Last Saturday was the wedding of Gemma and Steven - they held the ceremony at St Margarets Church in Stanford-le-Hope followed by the reception at Three Rivers Golf and Country Club in Purleigh, Essex.

Looking back at the weather for this past week they were so lucky as Saturday was glorious, Three Rivers in the sunshine is a beautiful venue with stunning views over looking the golf course.  

I would recommend this venue to everyone because the staff made you feel so welcome and was always on hand to help.  You'll see by some of the shots too that the interior has lots of mirrors and hopefully by now you'll know I love shooting reflections - I was totally in my element.

I was joking with Gemma the night before the wedding and she was trying to tell me how she wasn't looking forward to the posing and in her words "isn't very photogenic" I remember laughing at the time because I knew she would be great - I'm sure you'll agree with me that she looks beautiful in these images.  Steven on the other hand I'm sure had been practising because he was straight into the pose needing very little direction, he even had the head tilt perfect.  I had so much fun with both of them it just makes you want to be able to spend more time shooting together, it's a shame things like the wedding breakfast and speeches get in the way.... 

Gemma, Steven I hope you both absolutely love these images and I can't wait to show you more.
