Spains Hall Wedding | Laura & David’s Essex Wedding
A Spains Hall Wedding
This was my first Spains Hall Wedding and what a treat is was, it was quite a trek from Bristol but well worth it. I’d even go so far as to say that Spains Hall is one of my favourite wedding venues I’ve shot at this year. Rock on Essex!
I first met Laura & David at David’s sister’s wedding at Bristol’s Goldbrick House. It’s strange the things you remember but I vividly remember the floral dress that Laura wore to Ann’a wedding in Bristol that day. It was great chatting with them then and I was delighted when they contacted me to ask if I would photograph their wedding having seen the pictures that I took for Anna.
Laura had her bridal preparation in one of the amazing rooms at Spains Hall and was the embodiment of calmness. All the rooms at Spain Hall are fantastic, there’s such character, lots of lovely ornaments and antique ephemera everywhere you turn. It genuinely feels steeped in history but not oppressively so.
As well as the magnificent hall, Spains Hall is also set in some lovely grounds and its always these areas that make my heart sing when I arrive at a venue, especially one I’ve never been to before. I love photographing the bride and groom in a natural setting be it a wood or a field. I just think there’s something about using nature as a background that lends the pictures a romantic and timeless quality to them. In fact at this wedding I was delighted to be ask by the wedding coordinator why I was taking the couple to a specific spot as none of the ‘other photographers’ go up there with their couples – well I guess that’s precisely why I wanted to go up there, I wanted Laura & David’s photographs to look different, I wanted to be a bit more creative for them.
Suffice to say it was a great day and we were completely blessed with some beautiful weather.
Many many congratulation to Laura and David. What a fab day is was and many thanks also to your friends and family who all made me feel so welcome. And lastly a bit thank you to all the staff at Spains Hall, you made it all look so effortless.
