I recently photographed the wedding of Jade and Dave in the charming village of Long Melford in Suffolk. Jade and David who live in the nearby village of Glemsford were married in Holy Trinity Church followed by a reception at the Bull Hotel. Both wonderful historic buildings and both fantastic for beautiful wedding photography.

Long Melford, is so called because the main street is some two and a half miles long. It’s a beautiful and busy village which has thrived since Tudor times and is unusual for a village in that it has a parish church (Holy trinity), which has dimensions much more suited to a cathedral – It’s massive. It was completed in 1484 and is one of the richest “wool churches” in East Anglia.

Long Melford also has two stately homes, Kentwell Hall and Melford Hall which, like Holy Trinity church were both built from the proceeds of the wool trade in the Middle Ages.

The Bull Hotel is also an historic building having been built in 1450, it’s a timber house and you become are aware of its history as soon as you walk into the entrance hall. Its massive moulded oak beams dominate the reception area and the original part of the building. During the coaching era the Bull Hotel was the principal Posting House of the town and a stopping place of the London, Bury St Edmunds, and Norwich coaches.

I started the day by Photographing Jade at her home in Glemsford, She spent the morning there being pampered and having her hair and makeup done along with her two delightful bridesmaids, Samantha and Belinda.

I then went off to the church where I met up with Dave, his Best Man Adam and his groomsmen Samuel, Daniel and Paul, to take some photographs before the wedding ceremony. They were all a great bunch of lads, up for a laugh and very cool about having their photograph taken. As a photographer I love it when people are relaxed and natural whilst in front of the camera.

Jade arrived at the church in a very cool ‘old’ Volkswagon Camper Van, together with her dad and she looked absolutely fantastic – stunning in fact, in her wedding dress. After a short discussion with the vicar and her bridesmaids outside, her dad escorted her in to the church for the start of the wedding ceremony.

Following the wedding ceremony, the bride and groom mingled with guests and posed for photographs outside the church. We had just about got all of the formal photo’s completed before it started to rain at which point we all headed off to the Bull Hotel where they held the wedding reception.

The day of the wedding was a strange mix of sunshine and showers, either brilliant sunshine or else pouring rain. I’m pleased to say though that we managed to avoid the rain and stayed pretty dry all day.

Jade and David were a dream to work with and throughout the day we got some beautiful shots. I particularly like the natural light portraits taken of Jade and David standing in front of the huge church doors and the shots taken using video light on the stairs in the Bull Hotel

I have produced a selection of photographs from the day below, please feel free to leave comments.

It was a great joy recently for me to photograph the wedding of Emma and Andrew at Castle Hedingham in north Essex.

I started the day by Photographing Emma at her parents’ house in nearby Gosfield, She spent the morning there being pampered and having her hair and makeup done along with her three delightful bridesmaids, Sarah, Nikki and Charlotte. It was great to work in Gosfield because, as you may know it happens to where I live and for me was just a short walk down the road.

The wedding itself was held at St Nicholas’s church in the centre of Castle Hedingham village and it was here that I met up with Andrew, his Best Man Richard and his groomsmen Bob and Adam, to take some photographs before the wedding ceremony. They were all a great bunch of lads, up for a laugh and very cool about having their photograph taken. As a photographer I love it when people are relaxed and natural whilst in front of the camera.

Emma arrived at the church in a vintage wedding car and she looked absolutely fantastic – stunning in fact, in her wedding dress. After a short discussion with the vicar and her bridesmaids outside, her dad, Steve, escorted her in to the church for the start of the wedding ceremony. As you will see from some of the photographs St Nicholas’s is a fantastic old church, very grand, very beautiful and is definitely worth a visit.

Emma and Andrew are a fantastic couple from Sible Hedingham also in Essex and for those of you that follow my blog you will know we did a pre wedding photo shoot, in Castle Hedingham in April this year.

Following the wedding ceremony, the bride and groom mingled with guests and posed for photographs outside the church. They were then driven slowly through the village, followed by the guests, to Hedingham Castle where they held the wedding reception.

The day of the wedding was gorgeous, the sun was shining, the sky was blue and I’m pretty sure the birds were singing too. The gardens at Hedingham castle are fantastic and from their elevated position give a fantastic view of the lake below. It’s a perfect location to take some stunning photographs.

Emma and Andrew were a dream to work with and throughout the day we got some beautiful shots. I particularly like the natural light portraits taken on the bridge in front of the castle and the shots taken using video light on the stairs in the main hall.

I have produced a selection of photographs below –

Essex Wedding Photography

Pre wedding photoshoot with Emma Andrew

 

Emma and Andrew are a fantastic couple who live in Sible Hedingham north Essex. Their plan is to get married at St Nicholas’s church in nearby Castle Hedingham and then hold their wedding reception at Hedingham Castle. A large fine Norman castle built by Aubrey de Vere ll in 1140. (impressive eh!).

We thought therefore it would be a great fun to do the pre wedding photo shoot in the village of Castle Hedingham and that’s exactly what we did one bright sunny Saturday morning back in April.

North Essex in general is a beautiful rural area; a great place to take photographs and Castle Hedingham is absolutely delightful, a jewel in the crown and one of my favourite villages in the area. (I would fully recommend a visit).

Emma and Andrew were fantastic to work with; they were both relaxed, open and willing to try anything. We shot for about an hour and got some fantastic photographs, I have reproduced a few of these below.

I can’t wait to photograph their wedding!

‘Focus on Imaging’

On Tuesday I ventured north to the National Exhibition Center (NEC) near Birmingham to attend the annual ‘Focus on Imaging’ event. ‘Focus’ as it’s generally referred to is Europe’s biggest annual imaging show, and covers all your needs from image capture through to output and beyond. Whether you are a professional photographer, image maker or processor, a manufacturer or distributor of products or a keen hobbyist, there is something there for everyone and in fact there were well over 200 exhibitors present. Excellent opportunity and temptation to spend lots of money if you wanted to (or if you had it!).

As well as a trade show there are also a number software demonstrations going on from the likes of Adobe, OnOne and Corel etc as well as talks and demonstrations from a number of professional photographers, including wedding photography, portrait photography, commercial photography and landscape and wildlife photography.

I personally enjoyed a number of lectures / demonstrations,

Trevor & Faye Yerbury – Renowned wedding and portrait photographers based in Scotland but who photograph wedding all over the country. They gave an excellent talk and demonstration on studio based portrait photography using only one light and a reflector to produce some brilliant results. Web address http://www.yerburyweddings.co.uk/

Chris Burfoot – Chris is another wedding and portrait photographer but based at the opposite end of the country in Wiltshire. Chris is also well known for running a number of photographic courses for The Flash centre (TFC). He also runs courses for The Royal Photographic Society (RPS) and The Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP). On the particular occasion that I saw him Chris was giving a practical demonstration using different printed photographic backgrounds. In particular he had one which contained an image of a brick wall and another a corrugated metal shed / fence. The results were excellent, although photographed in a studio both looked as they could have been taken on location. Chris’s web address is http://www.pembrokephoto.co.uk/

Bjorn Thomassen – Bjorn, who heralds from Cornwall, has won many prestigious awards for his photography, in a diversity of subjects from Commercial to Wedding photography and Contemporary Portraiture including Fine Art. He also holds a Fellowship in Illustrative Photography. Bjorn gave a number of different seminars but during the one I attended he was exhibiting some of his own images and discussing the why and how he came to take them, explaining some of the detailed planning involved and how all of the elements came together to produce the final image. Some his wedding photography is absolutely stunning and I would definitely recommend a visit to his web site, http://www.bjornthomassen.com/

David Noton – Although I am primarily a wedding and portrait photographer I also enjoy other aspects of photography and in particular ‘Landscape’ David Noton is one of my favorite landscape photographers and he also was talking at Focus this year.

David is an award winning landscape and travel photographer with over 24 years experience as a professional under his belt. During his photographic career he has travelled to just about every corner of the Globe and his pictures are now published all over the world. He also writes for a number of magazines and websites including, Practical Photography magazine, Outdoor Photography, Digital Photo Pro and www.photographyblog.com where he has a monthly online column.

At Focus he presented a slide show and then gave a commentary / talk about where the pictures were taken and how they were obtained. As you would expect the images were simply stunning, I would definitely recommend a visit to his site, http://davidnoton.com/

There were lots of other speakers and demonstrations there too but these were just some of my favorites. As well as the trade show and seminars etc there was also an opportunity to photograph a number of models posing in different studio style settings. I have included a few of my shots below – if for no other reason than to give this blog entry a visual reference, also I think they look good, see what you think…

Pre Wedding Photo Shoot in Halstead Essex

Later on this year I will be photographing the wedding of Gemma and Joe a really nice really cool couple living in Ipswich. In preparation for that and as part of my wedding photography services we recently completed a pre wedding photo shoot. This was a great opportunity for the three of to get to know each other and for them to feel relaxed in my company and more importantly in front of the camera.

We actually did the session last Saturday 5th February in the public gardens in the charming rural town of Halstead in north Essex. I don’t know if you remember that weekend but it was incredibly windy, it was quite cold and it was threatening rain. We did think about doing an inside studio shoot, but decided outside was best and that we should brave the elements.

I’m really pleased we did, it was great fun. The public gardens were actually quite sheltered so the wind was not too much of a problem. Gemma and Joe were totally relaxed (on the outside at least) and we had an excellent time moving around to different locations and capturing some terrific shots.

There wedding will be in St Andrews church in Halstead followed by a reception at Smeetham Hall Barn in Sudbury Suffolk, I’m very much looking forward to photographing the big day itself.

Wedding Photography at The Bull Hotel Halstead.


I recently photographed the wedding of Sarah and Chris, both of Gosfield in Essex. They have been together about 15 years and have finally decided to ‘tie the knot’. They are a really nice friendly couple and I thoroughly enjoyed photographing their special day. The wedding itself took place in Braintree Registry Office and the wedding reception was held at The Bull Hotel in Halstead.

Although the weather was a bit cold, wet and blustery on the day we still managed to get outside to take most of the photographs. Here is a selection from those taken on the day.

 Engagement Portrait Photography.

A few days ago I did a pre wedding photo shoot with Jo and James, a delightful couple, who live in Herne Hill in London. The shoot took place in a nearby park, Clare Country Park in Suffolk, and although the weather was a bit dull and somewhat on the cold side we all had great fun and a really fantastic time.

A pre wedding photo shoot is a great opportunity for the bride and groom and the photographer to get to know each other and to get used to working with each other before the ‘big day’. It also gives the couple a chance to relax and enjoy the pleasure of being photographed in a completely stress free environment. Jo and James both said that they totally enjoyed the afternoon and that they both now felt much more at ease about being photographed on the wedding day.

In addition, Jo and James will now chose one of the photographs from the shoot to be made into a framed ‘photo board’ which will be on display at the wedding reception, all of the guests will be invited to sign the board and leave their comments and best wishes.
