What happens at a wedding photography consultation?

What happens at a wedding photography consultation?

Whilst planning your wedding in Suffolk you'll no doubt be spending a lot of time online, researching local wedding suppliers that resonate with you and your aspirations for your wedding day.  And once you have compiled a list of those wedding suppliers, you'll be looking to reach out to them to check their availability and to discuss your plans.

When it comes to wedding photography, your photographer will have their own way of discussing their services with you.  Whilst some may choose to chat with you on the phone, or maybe via Skype, many photographers will actually invite you to chat in person, at a location and time convenient to you both.

Woodhall Manor Wedding // Kelly & Ryan

Woodhall Manor Wedding // Kelly & Ryan

Kelly and Ryan were married on June 18th, with a ceremony and reception at Woodhall Manor.

On the day of the wedding, Elli (my assistant) and I arrived onsite while Kelly was getting ready in a secret room at the manor, and Ryan was in the cottage on the grounds. Although they were in separate places, they had written and exchanged cards that morning, just to start out the day the right way.

Meeting up with Rosie & Kevin at Flatford Mill in Suffolk was a real joy.  The guys were such great fun as we took in a gentle stroll along the river, taking in all the beautiful locations that this gorgeous national trust area has to offer.

One of the final photographs from Grace & Danny's epic wedding day at Hengrave Hall in Suffolk yesterday.

If I could sum up the day in one word, for me it would be "Family". There is such a strong, loving bond between both these guys and their families and their strong sense of love shone throughout the day. Especially through the speeches which really left me holding a tear back on many occasion!

Yesterday I had the real pleasure of documenting a super cool Suffolk wedding at the gorgeous new Copdock Hall Barn for Jasmin & Lewis.

The day was filled with such fun and laughter and included lots of stylish, personal details that wowed the guests.

A Gorgeous Private Garden Marquee Wedding in Suffolk

April saw me head back to Danielle's beautiful family home in Suffolk to photograph her wedding amongst the stunning private grounds of her parents home.

You may remember that I captured Danielle & Aston's evening engagement in a stunning nearby woodland, adjacent to the family home, a month or so earlier and soon enough the time came around for me to play a small part in the wedding proceedings.

KIND WORDS / A BEAUTIFUL THORPENESS WEDDING, SUFFOLK / KERRY & GRAHAM

KIND WORDS / A BEAUTIFUL THORPENESS WEDDING, SUFFOLK / KERRY & GRAHAM

You may remember that earlier this year I had the pleasure of being the wedding photographer that was asked to document a beautiful Thorpeness wedding in gorgeous Suffolk.  Kerry & Graham's big day was a beautifully personal affair within the grounds of the fabulous Dolphin Inn Hotel & Restaurant, owned by Kerry's family. Further to their wedding, the guys were recently very kind to send over these lovely words to sum up our time together:

Ailsa + Wes {Married} - Ufford Park, Suffolk - Suffolk Wedding Photographers

This was a HOT day! not to mention, wonderful, beautiful, touching and fun! Ailsa and Wes came to me not long before their big day wanting me to capture their big day and I was honoured to do so. They're such a great couple that just ooze fun and I think our images on the day reflected this. They both hold fantastic jobs for the NHS with Ailsa working in the A&E department and Wes being a Paramedic. I'm always in awe of guys like this that look after all of us in sometimes our toughest and also happiest times.

Here’s a small collection of the day’s images.  All the very best for the future guys.
