Beautiful wedding ceremony by the lake at Hengrave Hall

Jul 19, 2022 | Featured, Weddings

Having worked at Hengrave Hall many times, it is always a privilege to be invited back to take photos in and around the stunning wedding venue.

Laura and Ross’s outdoor summer wedding at Hengrave Hall, Suffolk.

When Laura and Ross mentioned that their ceremony was going to be outside by the lake I was very excited as this would have been the first outside ceremony I’d photograph at the venue. They had Thrive Floristry decorate the aisle and the pergola with a stunning array of flowers which were later moved to the wedding breakfast location.

Laura and her dad walked down the aisle to the beautiful sound of strings played by my favourite string quartet Scintillo. It is always a pleasure to see the friendly faces of Scintillo and I am looking forward to working more with them later this year.

After the ceremony, the newlyweds and their immediate families had their group photos taken whilst the rest of the wedding guests walked around to the west terrace to enjoy garden games, drinks and canapés. 

Not only was Laura and Ross’ wedding ceremony outside but their wedding breakfast was set in the Hengrave Hall’s stunning courtyard. The Hengrave courtyard gives a real Italian vibe and you wouldn’t believe you were in the middle of Suffolk countryside! The styling of their wedding truly complimented the neutral colours of the stone.

After the first dance, Laura snuck off and had a surprise outfit change into a dress that was made for dancing. With it being golden hour outside and because of the outfit change, we took the opportunity to pop out for 10 minutes to get some dreamy couple photos. 

It was a pleasure to photograph Laura and Ross’ wedding day, big thanks to Emma my second shooter on the day for capturing the boys in the morning and providing lots of support during the day. 

I am looking forward to being back at Hengrave next month.
