Wedding Photography for Eilidh & Ben – Butley Priory, Woodbridge

It was an early arrival for the start of our Wedding Photography for Eilidh & Ben’s Wedding.  Eilidh was staying at the Country Lodges at Stoke by Nayland Golf Club, with members of her family who had come down from Scotland for the Wedding.  It was our first visit to the Lodges and we must say we were very impressed, contemporary, spacious and light inside with balcolnies to compliment.  With final bridal preparations taking place, it was all systems go with us taking a few detail shots and just having time for a few portraits of Eilidh, Bridesmaids and Parents, before  we left to go to St. George’s Church, Great Bromley, for the Service.  As the Flowergirls had arrived at the Church, we took a couple of pictures of them as well as capturing Ben with his ‘Beetle’! wedding-photographer-essex-st-george's-church-great-bromley With the beautiful colour scheme Eilidh and Ben had chosen, a glorious day, a Piper leading Eilidh and her Father from the Lych gate into the Church, lovely pictures! After a few family photographs, it was time for the confetti pictures and to make our way to Butley Priory, Woodbridge. The Priory looked a picture in the mid-afternoon sun especially decorated with bunting in the vintage theme the couple had chosen.  Eilidh, Ben and the Bridal party arrived in Camper Vans which made for some fun Everybody enjoyed the cream tea and had a relaxing time socialising as David and I photographed the many accessories and details that Eilidh and Ben had made.  Afterwards, we used the coolness of the Priory for a few pictures of Eilidh and Ben. Once the Wedding Breakfast had finished Eilidh and Ben wanted a couple of pictures in the Bridal Suite and in the early evening sun around the grounds before the evening Reception, which was held in the With Eilidh and Ben’s first dance completed and a few informal pictures of  the evening guests we squeezed in a concluding evening picture of the happy couple before departing.


Wedding Photography for Dominique & Lea – Butley Priory, Woodbridge

Dominique and Lea chose the picturesque setting of Butley Priory as the venue for their Wedding.  When we entered the House, the first person we met happened to be Sarah, whose Wedding we photographed at The Fennes in 2011!  Hearing lots of excitement from upstairs we followed the trail!  Plenty of  space helped our job of taking the details and accessories shots, as well as capturing the events of getting ready. Once Lea had arrived with his Best Man, Michael, we took a few shots of them outside.  wedding-photographer-suffolk-butley-priory Once Dominque was ready we took the pictures of her in the room she was getting ready in before moving to the Bridal Suite and onto the landing for some family pictures. Before long it was time for Dominique to make her way down the wonderful staircase for the Ceremony.  Domique and Lea wanted an intimate Ceremony surrounded by their Family and a few of their closest friends.  After the Ceremony the Guests followed Dominique and Lee outside for a couple of confetti pictures, a few family pictures and a couple of fun Bridal Party pictures.   Everybody then enjoyed tthe Drinks Reception back in the House as it was a little chilly outdoors, this gave us the opportunity to take some informal shots while the guests relaxed. A little while later, we took Dominque and Lea for a few pictures around Butley Priory, both inside and out, with some lovely results!wedding-photographer-suffolk-butley-priory
The Speeches were before the Wedding Breakfast and we captured some great images of everybody enjoying them.  The sun’s first appearance of the day came in the early evening and grabbing the opportunity we took Dominique and Lea into the grounds around the back of Butley Evening Guests arrived for the Evening celebrations which were held in the Marquee and where we eventually caught up with Emily and Chris, whose Wedding we photographed at Braxted Park in 2007. Later, following cake cutting and the First Dance, some pictures of their evening Guests, it was time for us to leave.  A lovely day!


We made the Bride cry!!

The first thing we both wanted to say was a massive thank you. The idea of people staring at me and then having pictures taken on top on that was something I dreaded! We wanted an easy going, relaxed and intimate ceremony and you helped us achieve that. Half the time it was like you weren’t there and then when we needed to have pictures take it was actually a welcome relief to have those moments together that actually seemed like it was just me and Lea!

So thank you. Obviously through Sarah and Emily you came recommended and we in turn would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone.

Can’t wait to see the final product!

Thanks again

Dom and Lea

I didn’t get teary at all on the day but reliving it through your photos has made me cry about 4 times!!!!!

Thank you millions!!!!!!!

Dominique & Lea
