A gorgeous Essex Wedding at Houchins with pretty blue and pastel details

Today I am thrilled to share this gorgeous Essex Wedding at Houchins with pretty blue and pastel details.

The couple are Kim and Sid and they chose their dream setting for a beautiful celebration with family and friends…

Images were captured by Nathalie Delente Photography.

She says of the couple and their Essex Wedding day…


I met Kim whilst exhibiting at a wedding show at Hylands Estate in Chelmsford about a year prior to their wedding date.

I spoke to Kim about her wedding day and she told me they wanted a very relaxed approach to the photography.

When I arrived at Houchins on the day of the wedding, Kim was getting ready in the cottage in the grounds surrounded by her friends and family.

The hair and make up team were busy with all the ladies, and Sid was also around putting the final touches to the venue, so I flitted between between the two of them to capture natural moments.

As the morning progressed the guests started to arrive and soon it was time for Kim to get married so we moved from the cottage to the marquee for the ceremony.

Kim and Sid had made is very clear that they really didn’t want to spend a lot of time away from their guests to have lots of couple photos done.

They wanted to maximise the time with their loved ones and enjoy the day.

I could tell from the way they were interacting with their guests that they wanted to enjoy the party and that they had a superb group of friends around them.

I have been photographing weddings in and around Essex for 5 years now and Houchins is one of my favourite venues to shoot at, it is a lovely mixture of country with a unique industrial feel to the barn.

The photo opportunities are endless, and that along with the friendly staff, made it a pleasure working there capturing Kim and Sids Big Day.
