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.

Especially good when the wedding rings have this much detail!Wedding photography by the stone urn at Gosfield. Adding soft, out-of-focus edges to photos can create a nice look!Bride 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!The bride and groom, both professional ballroom dancers, dance partners and teachers strike a pose for me at the staircase at Gosfield HallUsing out-of focus elements to bring your eye to the sharpness of the main subject of the photoEveryone enjoying the first dance at Alpheton Hall BarnTender moment between newlyweds.

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.The groom and groomsmen!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 imageFraming a photograph in a doorway of arched window is always effective! Even better with three arches!Sunset at Gosfield Hall wedding, with bride and groom silhouettedBlue sky framed by archway with bride and groom having a quiet momentMoving the bride's veil through the photo for nice out-of-focus elementsWedding 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.Walking through Leez Priory's main arched doorwayBeautiful pink sunset framed with archway, off-camera flash bringing out the white edges to enhance it furtherThe south face of Gosfield Hall with early evening low sun bringing out the textureHengrave Hall Church Photography
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.Framing a wedding photo through leavesLovely red-brick textures and green leafyness.

This photo really has a relaxed, timeless feel to it!Night time photo at the famous Blue Doors at Gosfield HallDouble-Exposure 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. I think this one works particularly well with the bride's fur bolero!A Happy Bride and Groom at Leez PrioryStriking 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.Framing a wedding photograph through the treesA night time wedding photograph, the bride and groom in front of Leez Priory, lit by off-camera flashSweeping the bride's veil through the photo gives it a feel of motionRelaxed, informal wedding photographyCasual wedding photography at Leez Priory's towerThe front of Leez Priory is so distinctive!A lovely time of the day, when the sun is going down, but the sky is still very blue!
