Kate & Mark – Wedding Photography at St Mary’s, Woodbridge and a countryside reception at Easton Grange

It was a real treat to have been asked to photograph Kate & Mark’s Woodbridge wedding this summer. The couple chose St Mary’s church, in the centre of this historic market town, for their ceremony followed by a reception at nearby Easton Grange – the luxury barn wedding venue just a few miles away in the Suffolk countryside.

“…thank you so much for our photos, Mark and I are thrilled with them”

A beautiful family-centred day which managed to combine the formality of a church wedding with a relaxed reception and evening party. Kate looked perfect in her gorgeous lace edged, sweetheart neckline dress from Suffolk’s Lavender & Jude. I regularly photograph brides who’ve found their dream gown from here and, without exception, the style and fit of each dress is flawless – perfectly complementing each girl’s character. From a photographic point of view this is a dream combination – a happy bride who wears their dress well makes for relaxed, happy photos. Just look at the smile on Kate’s face and you’ll get the idea!

On the day Kate was keen to have a few family photos at home before heading to the church. We’d chatted beforehand about the importance of allowing time for this and we had an opportunity to make a couple of fantastic family portraits. A tip for all brides – if photos like this are important to you, allow time for them!! It’s always a good idea to make sure Mum’s, Dad’s and bridesmaid’s are ready before you so they can give you their undivided attention and support. It also means everyone looks fantastic in the photos as they’re helping you get ready ;-)!.

Credit where credit’s due – Kate & Mark drew on the help of the following suppliers to complete their day: Kate’s dress was from Suffolk’s go-to bridal boutique Lavender & Jude. Mark & the gents wore traditional morning suits from Moss Bros and the bridesmaids dresses were from the Jenny Packham range at Debenhams. Ipswich based Kaye Souter provided the beautiful flowers. The couple married in St Mary’s Church, Woodbridge before a short drive to Easton Grange, the luxury barn wedding venue in the Suffolk countryside. Their beautiful Rolls Royce came from BCD Wedding Cars. During the evening reception, guests enjoyed the sounds of The English Country Gentlemen, a young three piece covers band – highly recommended!
