Braxted Park Wedding Photography

I love to travel and I love to photograph weddings.

Put them both together and you have an incredibly beautiful Braxted Park wedding in rural Essex at the idyllic estate, home of the Clark family.

The luxury venue, which is close to Colchester and Chelmsford, offers more than just weddings. I noticed as I was passing that they have cookery courses, which piqued my interest. But back to Alex and Louises’ day!

And so it begins

The wedding day began bright and sunny. The bride and bridesmaids were already preparing as I arrived.

The morning of a wedding is the perfect time for me to photograph the details; the venue, dress, shoes and flowers and I take a fine-art approach to the these, aiming to produce unique and beautiful images for the bride to remember her choices.

On to the main event

The wedding ceremony is of course the most important part and my favourite moment is when the groom first sees his bride as she walks down the aisle. Just beforehand I think he realises how much this means and I often see guys look upwards as they prepare themselves for their emotional marriage.

The ceremony and readings followed, along with the exchange of ring, important first kiss and signing of the register … and they were officially married! They made their exit through the Queen Anne house towards the steps for a group photograph, and then on to confetti.

The sunny reception

The couple greeted their guests and offered canapes (oysters no less!) and champagne, all within the Pavilion, while I documented the fun. After a while, I took the couple for their wedding photographs in the walled Braxted Park estate.

The beautiful house and lake made a fantastic backdrop for stunning portraits and Louise & Alex were happy to use the bluebells which I’d spotted the day before.

Evening time

The couple entered the marquee for the wedding breakfast to rapturous applause. Speeches were soon underway and Alex was suitably embarrassed by his best man and brother. It’s my goal to always capture a “head in hand” moment from the groom.. and Alex supplied this perfectly!!

As the afternoon made way to evening, the guests chatted and relaxed before the final formailities; cake cutting and first dance under the sparkly lights of the marquee.

Congratulations Louise & Alex! It was a pleasure to spend your wedding day with you! And now onto the full set of wedding photographs at Braxted Park..
