Kind Words from a stunning private garden marquee wedding in Suffolk

Dani & Aston's wedding day in early 2014 was a day filled with such warmth and happiness.  It was such a pleasure for me to play a small part amongst a truly wonderful group of the couple's family and friends as they enjoyed a gorgeous wedding ceremony at Belstead Church in Suffolk, followed by fantastically themed marquee reception at their private residence.

I would love to share with you their kind words from our time together.

 

The photographer is one of the most important parts of your wedding to get right, as you want to capture the memories as you saw them, to look back on in years to come.

Ross absolutely captured everything we wanted, the style was perfect and we have an amazing album to keep forever. Many of our guests have commented at how great our photographer was and made them feel at ease, we felt the same and are glad we chose Ross. Thank you!!
— Dani & Aston

 

If you are planning your own private marquee wedding,  or indeed anywhere else, and would like to talk about your photography, I would love to hear all about your story.  So please do drop me a note using the contact page here.

I am delighted to be a  Suffolk wedding photographer nominated for an award in the 'Photographer' category of The 2014 Wedding Industry Awards. Damian & Anna Bailey, founders of the awards sum up what the competition is all about:

The Wedding Industry Awards ensure that there is now a credible and reliable independent National awards process and event. These are the only client-voted national awards in the wedding industry and our judging panel is second to none in its breadth and depth of experience. This means that the results have real meaning and are useful to both the entrants and anyone organising a wedding and looking for the best wedding suppliers both regionally and nationwide.We want to help anyone organising a wedding to make better educated decisions when looking for their suppliers.

If you are a wedding supplier wouldn’t it be great if couples could see that you’d won or been shortlisted for an Award for what you do? That you are the best not because you say so but because your clients say so?

If you are organising a wedding and are confronted with a long list of potential suppliers wold you book the one who had been shortlisted or won an Award based on what their previous clients and our expert industry judges have said about them, or one of the others?

The Awards logo has become a mark of the highest quality coveted by wedding suppliers all over the country and, most importantly, by couples getting married - A ‘kite mark’ for the wedding industry.

A reveal of the bride to her father / Kesgrave Hall Wedding

milsoms kesgrave hall wedding

At this stunning wedding, just towards the end of the kesgrave hall wedding preparations, I loved inviting the Father of the Bride to see his daughter for the first time as a Bride, before anyone else. Of course, it is usual that the bridal party will have helped the Bride get ready in the morning, but I always try to keep dad away from all the excitement where I can.  This means that when the bride is ready to make her way to the ceremony, we can formally invite Dad and his daughter to come together for a lovely reveal.

It's such a special moment for them both and creates some of the most beaming smiles you have ever seen.  It also enables us to capture these moments to be treasured forever in their wedding album.

Milsoms Kesgrave Hall is a stunning georgian mansion set in 38 acres of park and woodland.  With 23 bedrooms from standard right through to 'super deluxe' principals with bath tubs in the room and huge showers, it really is the perfect place for hosting your wedding celebrations.  For more intimate affairs, 'The Mess' offers a superb private dining with room for up to 24 people.  Lodge 1 is also available for private lunches and dinners for up to 18 people.

I feel really blessed whenever I look back on the clients I get to work with and Natarlia & Matt really are no exception.  I felt we really connected when we met at the beginning of the year for their initial consultation and so was blown away when they asked me if I would document their summer 2013 wedding at Thorpeness Country Club on the beautiful Suffolk coast. The coastal theme was also to carry through to their engagement shoot.  The guys decided that they would love to travel down to Old Felixstowe on a quiet evening as the sun came down.  This time of the day really does make play for awesome photography, with the light being so golden.

I'm really looking forward to playing a small part in their big day this summer.  They're such a cool couple, I just know its going to be a fantastic day filled with fun and laughter and I felt we really captured this essence in their engagement photos.

A Beautiful Suffolk Countryside Wedding in Thorpeness / Kerry & Graham / May 2013

It was an absolute honour to recently document Kerry & Graham's beautiful Suffolk countryside wedding in stunning Thorpeness.  You may well remember their recent engagement shoot, also in this pretty coastal town and it was back here once more that I travelled for their wedding celebrations on a gorgeous saturday in May. The pretty countryside church ceremony was followed by a super-relaxed reception at The Dolphin Inn just down the road.  The day basked in the beautiful seasonal spring tones of the styling which was a perfect match for the surroundings.  The day was also infused with an international flavour with the evening celebrations including a traditional South African 'Braai' BBQ dining experience.

It has been a real pleasure to get to know Kerry & Graham and play a small part in their big day.  They are such a wonderful pair and I really do wish them every happiness together.

Kind Words / An Intimate Milsoms Kesgrave Hall Wedding / Claire + Kevin

stowmarket registry office_milsoms kesgrave hall wedding_rossdeanphotography.com

Last September I had the absolute pleasure of documenting the beautifully intimate wedding of Claire & Kevin at the pretty Stomarket Registry Office, followed by a fantastic private dining reception at the luxurious Milsoms at Kesgrave Hall wedding venue in Suffolk.  The day was such fun and recently, the guys were kind enough to send over some lovely words, which I would like to share with you.

 'Ross was professional, committed and dedicated from start to finish. We are absolutely over the moon with the images from both our engagement shoot and the wedding. Every guest commented on how easy he was to work with and the images he produced captured the mood of the day (lots of laughter!) perfectly. Whenever anyone mentions that they need a photographer, I always recommend Ross, and will continue to do so. Will hopefully be back very soon for some photos of our first baby!'
