Easton Grange is a stunning venue in the heart of the Suffolk countryside not too far from Woodbridge. Sarah and James put a huge amount of work into their wedding and you can see their amazing personal touches throughout the whole day. We have always enjoyed covering winter weddings, they have a magical feel about them. Even though you have a lot less sunlight ( its dark by 4 pm) the quality of the light is really special and it is so much fun creating beautiful wedding images with the frost and mist that is available.
Easton Grange was the perfect location for this winter wedding with both Sarah and James getting ready. Sarah and the bridesmaids were able to use the dedicated bridal getting ready room with James using the cottage with is best man and ushers. Easton Grange is licensed for ceremonies and their spacious ceremony room is simply perfect, we especially love the mezzanine for some great high viewpoints. With all the wedding guests seated Sarah made a stunning entrance in her amazing wedding dress with her dad at her side – during the ceremony, we had laughter tears and moments of real emotion. With light fading fast we ventured outside into the frosty air for the main wedding group photo – we let everybody go back inside, we had a studio set up for for the smaller groups, and we concentrated on Sarah and James in the fading winter light.
This was simply a perfect winter wedding location, with warm winter light cascading down the main drive we got some beautiful images of James and Sarah. We soon ventured round towards the river which had a wintery carpet of frost over the ground and a gorgeous misty light coming through the trees, you could not have ordered a perfect wedding day.
With the main photography wrapped up, we could allow Sarah and James enjoy time with their friends and family, whilst Dibbs and myself capturing all the stunning details. After the meal, we had the opportunity to make use of the amazing L.O.V.E letters provided my Gareth of My Big Fat Wedding Disco for one of my favorite ever night time wedding portraits.
