I’ve been recommended by the venue for Gosfield Hall Wedding Photography since they opened as a wedding venue over ten years ago, all throughout the different seasons, in every type of weather. Mimi and Alex chose a gorgeous July day for their Gosfield Hall wedding!

With Gosfield Hall Wedding Photography, or at any wedding venue for that matter, I spend a lot of time photographing in a discrete and storytelling manner. A variety of photos will be taken, with plenty that show how the venue looked on the day, the weather and the small details of how the venue was set up. These photos capture a lot of the atmosphere. I know what the vital photos are, that I know must be taken. In between those I like to leave everyone at the wedding to enjoy themselves without feeling the photographer is asking much of them.

Photography when I arrive at Gosfield Hall

The first thing I do when I arrive for a wedding is to walk around the grounds to set the scene. Good wedding photography will tell a complete story of the day, and this is a good introduction.

Gosfield Hall Before the Wedding Ceremony

After photos of the building, the next stop is the bride, seeing how preparations are going with hair and makeup. The best time for photos is when hair and makeup are just about complete, yet before anyone has changed into their wedding attire. This means they are prepared enough for a few photos of hair or makeup tweaks. Also striking photos of the wedding dress, shoes and flowers in Gosfield Hall’s stunning Rococco suite.

The Groom with his Groomsmen

After visiting the girls the next stop is with the groom and his groomsmen. I often take portraits of the groom alone and arrange photos with his best man and ushers. There are many many fantastic locations for these photos, both indoors and outdoors with any Gosfield Hall Wedding photography. Detail photographs of the wedding rings will also be taken.

Photography during Gosfield Hall Wedding Ceremony

The Queen’s Gallery is one of Gosfield Hall’s stunning ceremony rooms. It’s a brightly lit room and its length makes for wonderful photographs as the bride walks down the aisle. The depth that is evident in photograph down long distances, shown by the out of focus foreground elements, gives these Gosfield Hall wedding photographs a striking look! I usually won’t need to use a flash to capture beautifully lit photographs in here, really helping keep me discrete! Clients often say that they weren’t even aware of me taking any photos!

Photography after the wedding ceremony

Straight from a wedding ceremony, I think it important to leave the families to meet and greet the happy couple! This is a lovely opportunity for casual photography! Happy faces, lovely emotions and the grounds at Gosfield Hall will make up these photographs.

Only after I’ve felt like the bride and groom have spent time with guests will I step in, and ask if they’re happy to start arranging the formal group wedding photos. These groups don’t need to take all day, perhaps only 15 minutes. It depends on how many photographs are on the list. At a typical wedding, the group photos cover the following; Parents, Siblings, plus partners, Bridesmaids, Groomsmen, then a large group of each side of each family and one of everyone. This list of close and important guests I’ll have on me when I attend any wedding.

Including every one of your important family members is vital during the group photographs, and a much larger list is no problem! Just bear in mind that a longer list may take more time to complete. This will likely leave less time for casual wedding photography.

Romantic Gosfield Hall Wedding Photography

It’s after the group photographs, I usually take the bride and groom away for wedding photos in the grounds at Gosfield Hall. It’s nice to get a feeling of peace and quiet at this point! After so many years doing Gosfield Hall Wedding Photography, I tend to have a set route to take clients on. My route around the grounds may alter from time to time. I may concentrate on a different area if the lighting is different. But my intimate knowledge of the venue and all corners of its grounds means my favourite areas can all be photographed without taking any more time up than necessary.

As you can See from Mimi & Alex’s Gosfield Hall wedding photography, it’s important not to make a photo feel posed. Certainly, a lot of the photographs are arranged; I will always choose a location where I know it will make a great photograph! Perhaps the background, or the architecture at Gosfield Hall. Perhaps the lighting is great there, or perhaps the background. Things that frame a photo such as archways. Or backgrounds with perhaps sunlight speckling on leaves can make a very pleasing photograph.
