A Perfect Suffolk Country Wedding

I have been really looking forward to featuring this beautiful wedding which was held very close to home for me in early July. After a week of dire weather warnings which included both gales and floods, it was amazing that Becky and Ali were lucky to avoid both, with the menacing black clouds appearing to apparently stall as they approached over the horizon.

If I had to plan a wedding for my own daughter, I would do something very close to this fabulous day, which could be described as the quintessential Suffolk country wedding. Becky’s parents had done an amazing job, with the garden of their beautiful cream painted Georgian house looking stunning despite all the recent rain. The day was full of lovely touches echoing the country theme, including fabulously beautiful but natural flowers, Suffolk Punch horses and of course the essential family hounds! Becky was a lovely bride and the wedding was attended by a coterie of stylish and fun guests, both young and old! Here is a flavour of the day, with the full gallery being available as soon as Becky and Ali have come home from honeymoon. Family and friends can view all the days pictures here:  http://www.everybodysmile.biz/cgi-bin/public.cgi?Id=158843

 

I love that moment when the bride walks down the stairs for the last time as a single woman, looking beautiful in her wedding gown.

I included this picture as it clearly shows all the beautiful and delicate lacework on Becky’s dress.

Just one of the many beautiful Suffolk churches you can get married in

You know if it’s going to be a great fun wedding as soon as the guests start to arrive…… the top picture shows the arrival of the friends who would later jump onto the stage and form the fantastic band for the evening celebrations.

Becky’s twin sister and also her best friend from her school days were the bridesmaids

How cute is that little page boy – taking his job very seriously…

It was at about this point that I realised what all the “David Cameron” jokes were about….!

Congratulations to Becky and Ali – and thank you for sharing your amazing wedding day. xx

Glorious Ickworth House Wedding for Bellotti family

Chloe and Martin held their wedding reception at the fabulous Suffolk wedding venue, The West Wing at Ickworth House. The grounds of this stunning wedding venue are at their most beautiful during the summer months and Chloe and Martin gave me plenty of time to create some beautiful wedding portraits for them as we walked around the grounds.

Essex wedding photography for Alice and Stuart

Alice and Stuart were blessed with one of the few beautiful days this summer for their wedding at the popular village of Coggeshall, in Essex. Alices’s family have lived in Coggeshall for many years and it seemed that the whole village turned out to wish her well as she arrived at the local parish church. Bridal preparations were a breeze to photograph with Alice, one of the most serene and happy brides I have photographed this season. I have selected a few images from the day here but to register to see all the day’s pictures, visit; Alice & Stuart

 

The family live in a gorgeous historic village house in this popular Essex village and it provided a fantastic backdrop with it’s ancient beams and mullioned windows. Alice was a joy to work with, excited but calm during the bridal preparations and having lots of fun with her bridesmaids. She photographed beautifully, with her tiny waist and enigmatic smile … with a look that was reminiscent of an elegant time gone by!

The local church was filled with family and friends and with the most beautiful stained glass window in the background. Alice arrived in her father’s vintage car and her entry to the beautiful Coggeshall parish church was accompanied by a military piper. After the moving ceremony, Stuart and Alice came out into rare June sunshine and I was able to capture some of my favourite images from the day, the newly weds being greeted by their friends and being showered by confetti.

The reception was held at a stunning local historic Essex farmhouse, with Pimms and canapés in plentiful supply.

Alice and Stuart had wisely made plans before the day, to have enough time to slip away during the reception for me to capture some romantic couple portraits making good use of the stunning Essex valley landscape. A further set of pictures was taken as they waited for their guests to take their places in the marquee.

There was a wonderful moment for everyone after the meal, as Alice, a very talented violinist, surprised everyone with an impromptu solo. This was followed by a set of great speeches and a beautiful First Dance as Stuart and Alice started the evening entertainment.

My congratulations to Alice and Stuart …  thank you for letting me share your wonderful wedding day and my best wishes for the future. xx

 

 

Wedding Photography at Otley Hall, Suffolk.

My third time back at Otley Hall this season and this time it was for the beautiful wedding of Georgina and Matthew. In keeping with the county’s benevolent weather patterns, the rain across the rest of the country stayed away and the guests enjoyed a warm summer’s evening, staying outside in the beautiful gardens of Otley Hall until late into the evening.

Georgina was supported thoughout the day by three lovely bridesmaids, including her own twin sister who is also getting married this year. The day started off in the small Suffolk village of Coddenham and the reception afterwards was held at Otley Hall. Here are a very few images to give a sneak preview from their happy day. To view all the pictures once Matthew and Georgina have had a chance to see them first, please ‘Like’ my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/suffolkweddingphotography  or register here to be notified by email when they are ready:  www.everybodysmile.biz/cgi-bin/public.cgi?Id=156910
