It is always a great pleasure to photograph weddings at St John's Church in Loughton. Not only is it my parish church but my Mother is the Tower Captain! It is without doubt one of the prettiest churches in the area (although I maybe a little biassed)!
St John the Baptist Church was built in the early 1840's and consecrated in November 1846. It was noted at the time that Loughton and Debden's existing Church, St Nicolas, which was built along side the old Loughton Hall, was too distant for the growing population of Loughton Village.
St John's is built in a beautiful Norman style with a pretty lychgate at the entrance to the church grounds. On entering the church you simply can't help but notice the gorgeous golden nave and alter. The tower houses eight bells, the fith bell was cast from two of the bells from St Nicolas Church which date to 1621. Nothing sounds better than eight bells ringing out to celebrate a wedding!
Located within a few minutes walk of Loughton's town centre and within easy reach of The M25 and M11 motorways. St John's Church is ideally located for couples moving onto many of London and Essex's prominent hotels and banqueting venues for their receptions.
