Wedding Photography Woodhall Manor for Jade and Andy

Wedding Photography Woodhall Manor for Jade and Andy

We were delighted in more ways than one, to be asked to photograph Jade and Andrew’s Wedding at Woodhall Manor, Woodbridge, Suffolk. We had previous bookings when asked previously for Weddings at Woodhall Manor, so we were pleased when Jade and Andrew gave us their date for their Wedding and we were available! We arrived early at the stunning Wedding Venue,  Woodhall Manor, Woodbridge on the morning of Jade and Andrew’s Wedding with the staff preparing for an inside Ceremony. Although Jade and Andrew wanted an outside Ceremony it was considered the grass was rather wet so inside was planned.  First off we went to find Jade who was getting ready with her Bridesmaids.

During this time there was a quick turnaround with the Ceremony, outside it would be, the sun was out, the temperature was increasing rapidly and the grass was fine!Wedding Photographer Woodhall Manor  Woodbridge SuffolkAfter taking some pictures of Andrew and his Groomsmen, as Jade and her Bridesmaids and Parents were ready we took a few pictures of them. Jade looked amazing! Soon it was time for the short walk to where the Wedding Guests were seated for the outside Ceremony. After the Ceremony, Jade and Andrew walked around the back of Woodhall Manor for the Drinks Reception and we had time for a couple of pictures of them before they were joined by their Guests.Wedding Photography Woodhall Manor Suffolk For a while everybody then mingled before we got on with taking the requested family group pictures, allowing us to capture some nice informal pictures. During the time before the Wedding  Breakfast we took Jade and Andrew for a short walk around the Venue for a few pictures of them. Just before the Wedding Breakfast in the Banqueting Suite we took an ‘e shot in front of the Manor House.  Coverage of the Speeches took place after the Wedding Breakfast then everybody went outside where Garden games were set up. It was a beautiful evening and during this time we had a chance to chat with Georgina (Andrew’s sister) and Simon, whose Wedding we photographed at The Fennes Estate in 2010. With the room set up for the evening celebrations Jade and Andrew cut their Wedding cake before taking to the dance floor for their First Dance together. Some evening pictures of Jade and Andrew ended our coverage of their wonderful Wedding Day.

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!
