Priory Hall Wedding Photography for Sarah & Ian

We arrived at Sarah’s Parents’ home in the morning of Sarah and Ian’s Wedding Day. Hair and Make-up was in the finishing stages so we got on with taking a few pictures and a few pictures of Sarah’s accessories etc.

Once Sarah, her Bridesmaids, Parents and Brother were ready we went outside for some pictures.  The sun was shining and we all wanted to make the most of the weather. We left then to travel to Ipswich School  which was the Venue for the Wedding Ceremony.

We met with Ian and his Groomsmen and took a few pictures of them before too many of the Guests arrived. Just as we had finished their pictures a few spots of rain fell so the Guests quickly made their way into the School. The Bridesmaids arrived and waited for Sarah to arrive which wasn’t long after. Under the shelter of brollies we all made our way inside.1962 3

Sarah and Ian were to be married in the splendid Chapel so when it was time Sarah took her Father’s arm and made her entrance. After the Ceremony Sarah and Ian led their Guests outside, the rain which was predicted to last all afternoon, had stopped! We quickly got on with taking the requested group pictures as we had a lovely backdrop. During this time our fingers were crossed the weather would hold out. Phew! We managed to take the pictures and the confetti pictures as well.  1962 5

It was at this point our luck ran out! Off we all went for the Wedding Reception at Priory Hall, Hadleigh. Sarah and Ian wanted a few pictures outside when we arrived at Priory Hall so we took these straight away with the aid of some brollies but you would hardly know it was pouring! As the Guests arrived they enjoyed the Drinks Reception inside Priory Hall together with Sarah and Ian.

Whilst they were mingling we took some informal pictures as well as some requested other pictures. The Wedding Breakfast was held in the Marquee . After the main course it was time for the Speeches to take place. We managed to take Sarah and Ian outside as there was a break in the weather for some night shots later on. The evening celebrations were held in the main hall  and a little later Sarah and Ian had their First Dance. Soon after we left them to continue the celebrations. Sarah, you smiled all day long despite some challenging moments, thank you..  A lovely day!

Ipswich School Engagement Pictures for Sarah and Ian

Ipswich School Engagement Pictures for Sarah and Ian

Sarah and Ian’s Engagement pictures were taken at Ipswich School.  Meeting them there one evening worked well as it is the Venue where they are getting married. As usual with a new venue, we like to visit ahead of the wedding to familiarise ourselves with the area. The Engagement shoot was an ideal opportunity to look around and familiarise ourselves with this location before Sarah and Ian’s Wedding Day. It is so nice to work at different places and we are so looking forward to this one. Afterward taking the pictures we finalised the arrangements for their wedding. We came away buzzing!

Priory Hall Wedding Photography for Victoria and Sam

Priory Hall Wedding Photography for Victoria and Sam

It was lovely to be back for a Priory Hall Wedding Photography at this wonderful Wedding Venue in Hadleigh, Suffolk. This was for the Wedding of Victoria and Sam. Our day started at the home of Victoria’s Parents, where Victoria and her Bridesmaids were getting ready.  Arriving at the house all was relaxed although busy with all the preparations. After taking a few details and getting ready shots,  the Bridesmaids got dressed followed by Victoria who was  assisted by her sister and Mum. Rain was in the air so we didn’t venture outside so instead made use of the Conservatory and took some Bridal Portraits of Victoria, who looked amazing, in the Lounge.

Priory Hall Wedding PhotographySt Mary’s Church, Woolpit, was where Victoria and Sam were to be married so when it was time we left for the short journey to the Church. Meeting up with Sam at the Church we took a couple of pictures of him and his Groomsmen in Church as it was now drizzling.  The brollies made the first appearance of the day when the Bridesmaids arrived with the Ushers doing a wonderful job in keeping them dry! As Victoria arrived, the drizzle had stopped, so taking her Father’s arm she followed the path and into the Church. During the service we kept a eye on the weather outside, although we had Plan B lined up if the weather did it’s worst! After the service instead of going outside when they came down the aisle, Victoria and Sam stayed in the Church, ready for Plan B! Having earmarked our spot for the family groups we got on with the requested pictures. Afterwards Victoria, Sam and their Guests made a quick dash to the cars for the journey to  Priory Hall.

The skies were brightening as we drew nearer to Priory Hall but the rain was still falling, so Victoria and Sam had their Reception drinks and canapés inside. As the Guests were socialising we took a couple of pictures upstairs and as Victoria and Sam re-joined their Guests the rain stopped. Making sure Victoria and Sam had their share of the drinks and canapés and socialised we got on with some fun group pictures followed by the confetti.  Priory Hall Wedding PhotographerThis worked really well and a little while later it was time for the Wedding Breakfast,which was held in the Marquee. Victoria and Sam wanted  a couple of pictures in the maze and  it worked well  to take these in between their Starter and Main Meal. The Speeches provided some great reactions, caught of course! Once these were finished everybody made their way back into Priory Hall for the evening celebrations.Recommended Wedding Photographer Priory Hall A few evening pictures were taken later together with capturing images of the First Dance. A couple of night shots ended our coverage of Victoria and Sam’s Wedding Day. A wonderful day and a lovely couple!
