Kentwell Hall Wedding Photography

There was one bonus to the very late Spring this year, which was that the wonderful drifts of daffodils at Kentwell Hall in Suffolk were still in bloom for Hannah and Nicholas’s wedding photos. I was asked to provide the Kentwell Hall wedding photography for this lovely couple in exactly the style I enjoy doing best – capturing totally natural, joyful wedding images to serve as great memories of their happy day. Kentwell Hall is one of my very favourite venues, offering a stunning backdrop to the wedding photos and superbly run by the team there. Here are a few of my favourite’s from the day showing the happiness and warm friendships that Hannah and Nicholas enjoy.

Hintlesham Hall Wedding Photography

Michelle and Mark held their wedding at the lovely Suffolk wedding venue of Hintlesham Hall. The Hall always looks wonderfully impressive as you spot it at the end of a long drive through the trees. The weather was predicted to be a bit of a mix but there was just enough sunshine to lift the light and giving a feeling of Spring warmth as the guests gathered outside. Michelle and Mark had been planning their special day for a long time, and their two little boys were very much a part of the proceedings. Both did brilliantly, despite the much more attractive distraction of a miniature train chugging around the grounds with the many little guests.

Michelle got ready in the light and airy Braganza bridal suite at Hintlesham Hall. The choices for her bridal accessories were gorgeous and perfectly set off by the soft pastel colours of the beautiful flowers supplied by the florist, Victoria Strowger Flowers.

The grounds of Hintlesham Hall wedding photography offer several romantic spots for the couple portraits. I always try to make good use of any seasonal foliage and flowers in these shots to give a sense of time and place and I was gifted here with both pretty pink cherry blossom on the trees and the very late flowering yellow daffodils in the orchard. I love all of these shots, especially the ones where Michelle’s beautiful smile lights up the photo.

There was enough time later on in the evening to do a second portrait session with Michelle using some of the elegant backdrops of the interior of Hintlesham Hall and then after the couple cut the enormous wedding cake they took to the dance floor for their First Dance with music provided by expert DJ, Adam, from Your Wedding Disco. A quick little groom only solo with the improvisation of a handy saucepan was followed by a rather moving Father and Daughter dance before all the guests joined them on the dancefloor.

WOW …. I was lucky to have had Michelle buy her dress & bridemaid dress from me & I had the privilege of dressing Michelle & her bridesmaids on the day of her wedding. I just want to say what an incredible experience it was & to meet such lovely people also giving their services, hair, make-up, flowers, wedding cake at such an awesome venue. The photo’s of your wedding day are to keep & look back on for many years to come & what an outstanding job Justine has done for Michelle & Mark’s wedding photo’s. Totally amazing. I bet the video is just as good.
Well done Justine xx

Gosfield Hall Wedding Photography

Nichola and Craig chose Gosfield Hall for their Essex wedding venue and were one of the nicest couples to work with. I really enjoyed their joyful, fun wedding which was full of warmth, laughter and love. It was obvious to all, the very strong bond that Craig has developed with Nichola’s three lovely children and it was a pleassure to see. Craig and Nichola had invited family and good friends and lots of children who enjoyed rushing around the grounds of Gosfield Hall in the sunshine. A very happy celebration and I wholeheartedly wish a lifetime of happiness to the newly married couple.

Crabbs Barn Wedding Photography

Although I have provided the Essex wedding photography at many lovely venue’s, it was my first time at the very popular venue Crabbs Barn near Kelvedon in Essex. I arrived early to have the opportunity for a chat with the owner and a good look around for some unique locations for the couple portraits later in the day. Nina and David were blessed with a bright and sunny Spring morning as they got ready in the newly appointed guest rooms at the Barn. Nina was well attended by some great fun bridesmaids who looked fabulous in their purple silk bridesmaids dresses.

Nina had a beautiful dress and accessories which did justice to her artistic eye as an interior designer. I particularly loved her cream shoes which tied with a silk ribbon.

Hengrave Hall Wedding Images

The first set of Hengrave Hall wedding images for 2013 comes from Laura and Jonathan’s spring wedding held there at the start of April. The weather certainly offered the seasonal ‘spring showers’ a plenty but luckily the sun did break through for a short while in the afternoon for a beautiful set of couple portraits.

Laura was attended by no less than seven bridesmaids, one of which was a familiar face for me as I had shot her own wedding just last year. The girls all looked stunning in their soft pastel pink long dresses and Laura herself looked sensational in a beautiful and original styled dress. Jonathan and the rest of the guys were getting ready just down the hall and it made a nice change for  the groom to have some equally sumptuous accessories to photograph as the bride! Once everyone was ready, the boys headed over to the little chapel within the grounds to greet their guests whilst the girls received their bridesmaids gifts and probably took even more photos than I did!

Laura and her gorgeous coterie of bridesmaids had to make a quick dash across from the main buildings of Hengrave Hall to the little chapel in the grounds as the first spots of rain were felt. After a simple, joyful ceremony, another dash, featuring an army of staff with umbrellas, saw the guests dried off and happily celebrating inside the wood panelled ballroom of Hengrave Hall. A quick dash out into the gardens between showers gave me the chance to take some beautiful romantic shots of Laura and Jonathan.
