Nestled in the heart of Suffolk countryside in Woodbridge is the stunning family-run wedding venue, Easton Grange. Formerly a working farm, now a private hire wedding venue where everything is onsite for full-day wedding celebrations, from prep to party and accommodation too!
5 things I love about Easton Grange
Having enjoyed photographing several weddings at Easton Grange over the years I thought I would take the opportunity to share 5 things I love about the venue from a photographer’s perspective.
1. Everything is in one place
First off, everything is in one place, this is a big plus for a lot of couples. Having everything available on site can make the day run smoother as it can remove any transportation issues that could arise. It also means you get more time on your wedding day to celebrate with loved ones as no one is travelling from ceremony to reception.
2. The food
Whenever I have worked at Easton Grange the food I have been supplied as a supplier has always been amazing. The food is often something the guests will be talking about on and after the wedding day so getting it right is key.
3. The lighting
Being a wedding photographer that has a light and bright style of photography, Easton Grange really complements my work because it is a venue filled with lots of natural light. From a photography point of view, lighting is something that can make or break a location and it is clear that Easton Grange has got it right.
4. The grounds
Set on the edge of River Deben it really does make for a beautiful backdrop. In recent years the venue has installed a bridge over the river which makes for some lovely photos. Not only have you got the river but you also have the grassy meadow (this is where the sunsets too), the lawn, the tree-lined driveway and many other areas with pretty planting. You could say you are spoilt for choice for where to have your couple portraits taken.
Prior to spring 2022, there was just the Bakehouse and the Farmhouse for accommodation but now next door to the Grange are the new Farmstead Lodges which are available for wedding guests to book too. This is great if you have friends and family coming from afar and they need somewhere to stay after your wedding.
Testimonial from Easton Grange couple Jess and Josh:
Gemma was the most amazing photographer we could have asked for. The service we received from start to finish was exceptional. On the day it was like Gemma was part of our family, she was personable and built relationships with every single person at our wedding and our guests could not speak more highly of Gemma.
Gemma was everywhere but nowhere at the same time capturing beautiful intimate moments we didn’t even realise she had seen. Gemma captured every single moment of our day beautifully, when we look back at our photographs it is like reliving our whole wedding day, in fact, I don’t think there is one photograph we don’t love. We can’t recommend Gemma highly enough she truly is an incredibly talented photographer but above all an incredibly lovely person. Thank you so much Gemma we will always be grateful we met you.
