First of all, what an absolutely great time I had photographing these Gosfield Hall wedding images. Ben, Alex and their circle of friends were a pleasure to work with. Also, it was good to work alongside a few of my favourite Essex wedding photography suppliers.
The bridal preparations
Alex and the girls were enjoying a high degree of pampering when I arrived at Essex venue, Gosfield Hall. The atmosphere was calm and relaxed…just the odd bottle of champagne visible.
I was joined by my good friends Steve and Jenny from Unique Visuals One of my preffered film makers. I love their flare and cinematic look. Furthermore, they are a pleasure to work alongside and I feel we make a good image and film team.
The guys were getting ready in another room, so it was a case of moving between the two and building the story of the wedding day.
The wedding service
I’m a big fan of the Long Gallery at Gosfield Hall. Due to the window placement it lights really well, with the dark panelling making a strong contrast back-drop for wedding images. Ben looked calm and collected – ready for the arrival of his beautiful bride. I especially enjoyed the dash of humour in the service. A few laughs keeps thinsg fun and relaxed.
After the service Ben, Alex, their friends and family enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere of the courtyard with an acoustic guitarist and drinks/canapes. In addition, the sun decided to play a welcome part in the proceedings.
While the drinks reception was in full swing, we shot some Gosfield Hall wedding images of the bridal party and parent groups. As the weather looked good for the day, I held back couple shots for the best of the evening light.
Gosfield Hall wedding images
I seem to be getting a name for my stylised wedding party images. Probably something I try to do at most of my weddings now if possible. They take a little time to set up, with posing and lighting, but the response from clients has been amazing. Currently I don’t see many other photographers working this way. Therefore it gives me a slight USP…well, for the time being anyway!
A really great day at a venue I always enjoy working at. In addition – a super fun couple to work with. Congratulations Ben and Alex. My best wishes for a future full of happiness together.
