Hengrave Hall
Alice & Will

October 14, 2017

I’d been looking forward to shooting Alice & Will’s Hengrave Hall Wedding for a very long time. In fact, ever since I laid eyes on this very special location I thought it just going to be the sort of place that I’d love to return to again and again. I’ve shot some beautiful weddings in Suffolk before such as at Sibton Park so it was great to be back in this neck of the woods!

When I met the couple at Hengrave Hall a few weeks before the big day, I walked away with a very good feeling about their wedding. Alice and Will themselves were lovely and were just so in tune with my documentary style of photography that I knew we were going to have a great day together. And the location…well put it this way, when you’re fortunate enough to have weather that had no place in October, and you’re at a Tudor mansion that is so beautifully restored with the perfect mix of historic features and modern yet sympathetic design touches, it’s always going to be something special.

Hengrave Hall Wedding

After Alice had prepared for the day ahead in the Bridal Suite and the boys had finished playing Bond Trivial Pursuit, PS4 footy, and a couple of games of pool (and get ready of course!), they all headed to the church which is literally a stone’s throw from the main building. The church itself is just a perfect little chocolate box of a building and the perfect setting for the couple’s humanist ceremony. 

Reception took place on Hengrave Hall’s West Garden before everyone took their seats for a fabulous dinner provided by Milsom Catering and speeches which were nothing short of brilliant. Then onto the dance floor and partying into the wee small hours…

Congratulations Alice & Will, it was a fantastic day and an absolute joy to photograph! Looking forward to another Hengrave Hall Wedding in the future…

‘The blog is fantastic, I can’t stop looking at it, it’s so lovely to see some of the photos so soon, can’t wait for them all to arrive! Thank you for everything, it was perfect!’
