Suffolk & Essex Wedding Photography Portfolio

Wedding Photography Essex & Suffolk – Portfolio Galleries

You can see examples of my wedding photography from venues all across Suffolk & Essex in these portfolio galleries.

Of course, as I photograph an entire wedding day, many styles lend themselves to different times of the day. I photograph details, casual moments, atmospheric shots and a few of the traditional groups. What you see here only touches upon the photographic coverage from a whole wedding.

A Back-lit shot like this has a really striking look to it, but I also love including architectural details of settings like this, the church at Hengrave Hall. I find it really pleasing how nicely the stone texture comes across.Beautiful pink sunset framed with archway, off-camera flash bringing out the white edges to enhance it furtherA lovely time of the day, when the sun is going down, but the sky is still very blue! Off camera flash, and dramatic framing with the bride and groom low int he frame to enhance thew feeling of a big sky!A night time wedding photograph, the bride and groom in front of Leez Priory, lit by off-camera flashEvening photo of the groomsmen with cigars, their smoke picked out by off-camera flash lightingThis photo is a great way of showing the ring details, with a background of the wedding suit's colours.

It's nice to find different places to photograph the wedding rings, this military sword was very appropriate as it was the sword the groom carried as part of his military dress uniform.Bridesmaids photobomb a photo from the top of the stairs at Gosfield Hall!Framing a wedding photo through leavesA Happy Bride and Groom at Leez PrioryBride and groom, walking in the grounds at Gosfield HallBlack and white wedding photograph at the South face at Gosfield HallOff-camera lighting and strong reflection make for a striking photo at Woodhall ManorWalking through Leez Priory's main arched doorwayAn ovewrhead group photograph in the shape of a heartDramatic sunset at Leez Priory, lit with off-camera flash to save the bride and groom from being silhouettesVeil blowing in an 'S' shape.

This is a striking image created using one heavily silhouetted image of the bride and groom and another of the tree-line at Gosfield. I think this one works particularly well with the bride's fur bolero!A tender moment, in a golden field of wheat, on the walk back to Gosfield Hall from the Church ceremonyThe wonderful carved details in one of the old doors at Leez Priory are just perfect for sitting wedding rings in for a detail photograph.

The ride from the church to the reception was quite short on this wedding, so the bride had to finish her drink quickly, made for a very fun photo!Blue sky framed by archway with bride and groom having a quiet momentGreat blue sky, meadow and lake.
