Rachel & Adam got married on a beautiful crisp October day! Hengrave Hall wedding photography always always has such a classy feel for me, with one of the most striking faces of any wedding venue I’ve photographed at!

The first port of order on arrival to photograph a wedding at Hengrave Hall, or any venue for that matter, always starts with photos of the house and grounds. Wedding photography should always tell the story of the day and the essential start to storytelling is to photograph the venue, the weather on the day and the details of anything that has been set up.

Rachel & Adam used the church at Hengrave Hall for a blessing after their wedding ceremony in the main house. The church is wonderful for wedding photography, and offers three different angles. It can easily be photographed from the front of the church, at the back of the aisle, or from the elevated position on the balcony above.

Photography after the Ceremony

After the wedding ceremony of any wedding, the first and most important thing I fell, is for the bride and groom to spend time with guests. Photographs being congratulated, the warmth and love coming from family and friends really can capture the atmosphere. Time is also spent during this period, circulating the room myself, capturing photographs of guests as couples or family groups, always with a very informal feel.

Once time has been spent greeting guests it is time for the more arranged, family group photographs. I feel no wedding can be without these, as usually, family don’t often get together in such large numbers as they do for a wedding. It’s important not to take too much time from a wedding, but equally important to not miss anybody important. The art is to get these group photos done quickly, but without making anybody feel rushed!

After gathering group photographs it’s usual to take the bride and groom away for romantic photographs. Hengrave Hall has some seriously stunnign backdrops. Walking photographs are always the most relaxed, no posing needed. Even ‘posed’ photos can be made to feel very relaxed too, indeed anything that looks forced will likely not make the final edit!

Evening Wedding Photography

Early evening doesn't always have to mean sunset, sometimes a big blue sky is all you need. Enhanced with off-camera flash lighting
