Leah & Matt’s June Wedding at Bruisyard Hall

Leah & Matt contacted me after searching for a photographer whose style would complement their plans for a June wedding at Bruisyard Hall. This is a venue I know really well, being only a few miles from my home on near the Suffolk coast. I’m also really honoured to be on of the venues trusted suppliers and have photographed weddings here since I moved to Suffolk in 2012.

Despite its grand appearance, the hall has a wonderful, homely feeling and makes the perfect setting for a wedding. The wedding party is able to make use of the hall and it’s accommodation over the whole weekend of a wedding so is perfect for couples wanting a relaxed, almost house party feel to their celebration. Think of a long weekend with the people you love most with your wedding and a damned good party as the highlight. All located in a beautiful Suffolk valley where you can’t see another house!

The day was a real delight to be part of with Leah & Matt giving me free rein to search out all those wonderful candid moments couples book me for. The bouquet toss was a first for me… it was only on the third attempt that one of girls managed to edge the chaps out the way and claim the flowers. Just one of many lovely moments from this very happy day in the Suffolk countryside.

Here’s a selection of my favourite images which give a sense of the day and hopefully offer an insight into how I shoot.

I’m really honoured to be one of Bruisyard’s trusted and recommended suppliers. I’ve shot weddings here since moving to Suffolk in 2012 and the venue is only a short drive from my home in the area. I’ve really noticed an increase in couples wanting to make the most of local suppliers over the last few years, especially at Bruisyard Hall which has a strong local family history and identity. Using a local professional who both is familiar with and trusted by your venue is something mentioned regularly by my couples, especially as many live away from the area and might not have the benefit of local knowledge. So, if you’re planning your own wedding at this, or any of Suffolk’s other brilliant venues please do drop me a line – it’d be great to hear about your plans and hopefully be a part of your own day.
