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.

The front of Leez Priory is so distinctive!The gate to the back lake at Leez Priory has something of a 'secret garden' feel to itSimple, classic symetry in black and white, at the towerGreat blue sky, meadow and lake. This photo really has a relaxed, timeless feel to it!An ovewrhead group photograph in the shape of a heartBride finishing her drink!
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!Bride and Groom walking the grounds at Gosfield Hall, with stag statue behind. The bride's veil blowing gently in the wind.Framing a photograph in a doorway of arched window is always effective! Even better with three arches!Veil blowing in an 'S' shape. The classic 'walking away and looking back' wedding photograph, made all the better by the wind blowing the veil into a lovely 'S' shape!Relaxed, informal wedding photographyWedding ring detail photo, sitting on hessian and lace detailing of bouquetMoving the bride's veil through the photo for nice out-of-focus elementsEveryone enjoying the first dance at Alpheton Hall BarnBlack and white wedding photograph at the South face at Gosfield HallWalking photographs are always my favourites!Lovely red-brick textures and green leafyness. A really relaxed and happy wedding photoHuge Redwood tree at Gosfield Hall with bride and groom looking off-cameraStriking reflection of Woodhall Manor. I love this low angle over the water at Woodhall Manor, getting as long as I can to show as much of the building in the reflection as I can.Sunset at Gosfield Hall wedding, with bride and groom silhouettedUsing out-of focus elements to bring your eye to the sharpness of the main subject of the photoBlue sky framed by archway with bride and groom having a quiet momentA Happy Bride and Groom at Leez PrioryBlack and white wedding photography.

This is a striking image created using one heavily silhouetted image of the bride and groom and another of the tree-line at Gosfield.

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.The groom and groomsmen!Tender moment between newlyweds. Relaxed wedding photography at Gosfield HallThe wonderful carved details in one of the old doors at Leez Priory are just perfect for sitting wedding rings in for a detail photograph. Especially good when the wedding rings have this much detail!Leez Priory's striking front, with big blue sky and fluffy cloudsThe bride and groom, both professional ballroom dancers, dance partners and teachers strike a pose for me at the staircase at Gosfield HallWedding Rings on Military Sword
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.I love how the I managed to get the church into the frame, to show what the subject is looking at, and really telling more of a story from one imageDramatic big blue sky at Gosfield!One of my trademark shots using off camera flash to replicate the look of an overhead streetlightOne of the ancient carvings in a doorway at leez Priory is such a nice spot to nestle the wedding rings for a detail photograph!A very relaxed pose at Granary Estates, the bride laughing as she hangs on the groom's shoulderThis photo is a great way of showing the ring details, with a background of the wedding suit's colours. An added bonus in this example is the heart-shape made by the shade falling on the hands!Dramatic evening sunset photo with bride's veil flying in the wind. This shot was created with the help of an off-camera flash, balanced carefully to show the sunset and light the bride and groom well.A tender moment, in a golden field of wheat, on the walk back to Gosfield Hall from the Church ceremonyCasual wedding photography at Leez Priory's towerEvening photo of the groomsmen with cigars, their smoke picked out by off-camera flash lightingA sparkler-exit at Leez PrioryOut-of-focus elements giving a more candid feel to the photographSweeping the bride's veil through the photo gives it a feel of motionGorgeous sunset at Gosfield Hall!
