Gary and Crystals Wedding at Orsett Hall in Essex

What a day photographing Gary and Crystal’s wedding at the beautiful Orsett Hall in Essex. The hotel is set amongst 12 acres of landscaped gardens and is the perfect backdrop for any wedding.

Crystal contacted me last year and booked me as their wedding photographer. I am a Kent based wedding photographer but often travel to Essex and London to photograph clients weddings. 

Bride and groom preparations started at Orsett Hall in the morning, it was a glorious sunny day. The church which they chose to marry in was only a short drive away so with preparations completed, we all made our way there. 

After the service we shot some family photos outside the church and a few of Gary and Crystal. We were keen to get back to Orsett Hall as the grounds are beautiful. Upon arrival at the hotel we shot some more formal photos, detail shots of the wedding breakfast room and candids of the guests. Then it was time to explore the landscaped gardens for bride and groom photos.

The weather that evening was perfect, very warm and clear skies. Gary and Crystal had asked at the initial consultation for some low light evening shots. So after the wedding breakfast, off we went once again into the gardens. We also wanted to incorporate the huge chandelier Orsett Hall has that reaches 3 floors up! 

I hope you enjoy the small selection of images, if you are getting married and would like to discuss your big day, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
