Houchins wedding photographer

Based in North Essex Houchins is a wedding venue just off the A120 in Coggeshall with a history dating back to the 17th century. Being just under a 20-minute drive from my home in Braintree Houchins is one of my favourite local venues. 

Some of the things I love about Houchins would include the huge diversity of backdrops that can be used for photos, from the beautiful gardens in the drinks terrace to the surrounding fields that are sometimes seas of blue/purple when borage is being grown. Also on the day, you have a great team of staff that help with keeping the flow of the day and meeting any needs of the wedding couple. 

In 2021 I proudly became a recommended supplier at Houchins, so look forward to photographing lots more lovely weddings here. If you are planning your Houchins wedding and feel my style of photography would be a good fit for your wedding day I’d love to hear from you.

Kind words from a Houchins couple

We honestly cannot thank Gemma enough. Gemma had offered so much help and support through the wedding planning process and made helped to make the day have such a relaxed atmosphere, we couldn’t have chosen a better photographer if we tired.

The online gallery is amazing and so easy to navigate and the photos are unreal. Me and my husband cannot actually put into words how we are feeling right now but it really is true what people say, pictures speak louder than words. We have looked through the photos over and over again and it’s as if we are reliving the best day of our lives.
