Maison Talbooth wedding photography | Jessica and Jordan’s Sneak Peek

On Saturday we had the absolute honour of photographing Jessica and Jordan’s gorgeous intimate wedding at Maison Talbooth in Essex.  With less than 40 guests, we knew it really would be about family and friends, those relationships and bonds, and we weren’t wrong!

Now, the weather, which has been beautifully sunny for the last couple of weeks, really did try and dampen spirits, however, these two have the energy and soul of a million sunny days and didn’t let it ruin a thing.  When the drizzle came, up went the umbrellas and dancing continued by the pool house to the fabulous band.

Before the wedding, I asked what their one piece of advice would be to couples starting their wedding planning journey, and wise words were shared…


“Be honest and be open with your other half, you’ll end up with a partnership and an outcome that you both want. Being polite and trying to be agreeable will never get you where you want to be.”


A little bit about the venue, Maison Talbooth is a beautiful hotel set in the Essex countryside.  With it’s gorgeous gardens, it’s actually the perfect venue for an intimate wedding where you and your guests can celebrate for the whole weekend as they have an onsite spa and tennis courts.  Jess and Jordan chose blues, greys and whites for their colour scheme and Amega Fleur Floral Design created stunning arrangements for the entrance along with beautiful bouquets for Jess and her bridal party.

There was a lot of dancing at this wedding, not just the formal evening reception, but an incredible band to pass the time after dinner and before the cake cutting at the pool house (yes, there is a pool house at the venue!) and despite the drizzly weather, the guests still embraced the tunes.

Jess and Jordan I know at the moment are sunning themselves on their honeymoon, but sent the sweetest message on seeing their sneak peek


“… you’re so fabulous! I love every single one… feeling so blessed…”
