Ye Olde Plough House Autumn Wedding – Rebecca & Jack

Stories of Love, Weddings



Rebecca and Jack got married in autumn at the spectacular Ye Olde Plough House, which is a beautiful barn-style venue in Upminster Essex. They had their ceremony at St Margarets Church, which is their local church. It was such a fun wedding and even the rain didn’t dampen the day!

Bridal prep

Rebecca got ready at her parents home with the bridesmaids, and the atmosphere was so relaxed. All the girls were really happy and excited. The wedding party then took two vintage wedding cars to get to the ceremony. Jack got ready at their home with his groomsmen, they were his dad, Dave and his two brothers Alfie and Charlie (Charlie was also best man), his best friend and the other best man Connor and his brother Antonio. The group travelled to the ceremony in a surprise Rolls Royce which Jack’s mums organised. 

The ceremony

The ceremony was a beautiful service at their local church in Stanford-Le-Hope, Essex. St Margaret’s church is a grand old traditional church set in the heart of Stanford-Le-Hope. Their beautiful son Ari was also baptised there. During the ceremony, they had two readings. It was so personal and so meaningful. As the bride and groom made their way out of the church they looked amazingly happy.

The afternoon

The reception was in the main hall at Ye Olde Plough House. They chose the venue because they wanted a barn style venue, after being guests at friends wedding there a couple of years ago and they just fell in love with it. It was a traditional wedding, which was great fun. I love shooting Ye Olde Plough House weddings because the surroundings are so gorgeous. The venue and staff were great, the food is amazing and I love the venue decor near Christmas. It makes some great video and photos.

They had a really great sweet cart for all the children in the afternoon, and a photobooth in the evening. They decorated the venue with lots of personal and very beautifully crafted extras and candles, because the bride had so many wonderful ideas and it looked incredible. The attention to detail was amazing, it was mainly neutral colours and was just perfect!

For dinner, they served a fabulous top quality choice menu, which was loved by all the guests. When I saw the food being served, it looked absolutely delicious and the presentation was excellent. The first dance was a romantic slow dance, and they finished off the evening with plenty of dancing! This was a fantastic opportunity to get some amazing video footage and photos of the evening entertainment.

The most memorable part of the day was the dancing, because everyone was really enjoying themselves and having a lot of fun. They also did an Italian tradition during the first dance – it was so unique! The parents and grandparents put streamers all around the newlywed’s which I haven’t seen before and it was very colourful.

The couple

Rebecca wore a beautiful traditional wedding dress and Jack wore a lovely suit and they looked so perfect. Rebecca’s wedding dress was sourced locally at Romford bridal shop after she fell in love with it and Jack’s suit was supplied by Moss Brothers. which looked fantastic.

The couple met young at a pyjama party and have been together for ten years. They got in touch with me just a few days before their wedding day and their enquiry really intrigued me. They said the wanted a relaxed videographer who can capture natural footage and wanted all the family captured on film, and I thought it was awesome that they were so fun. The Italian tradition during the first dance was so lovely and different.

Rebecca and Jack’s wedding was such a laugh and so laid back. Here’s their wonderful wedding!
