Pretty as a Picture – Vicki & Nick’s Wedding at Gosfield Hall

We’d not had the pleasure of capturing a wedding at the gorgeous Gosfield Hall before so we were delighted when Vicki and Nick asked us to photograph their special day.

We first met Vicki and Nick a couple of months before their big day to discuss their plans.  Vicki had some very creative ideas that we were excited about putting into action.  At Gemini Photography we are very aware that it’s your day, not ours and will always aim to embrace your ideas whilst helping and guiding you to ensure that a great photographic story of your day is created.

On the day we arrived early so that we could capture this beautiful venue and its stunning grounds.  These shots make a great start to setting the scene as the story of the day unfolds.

The Bride was getting ready with her Bridesmaids and parents in the Bridal Suite.   Wow!  What an impressive room and a photographer’s dream! Capturing all the detail that has been so carefully planned we set to work.  The bouquets were beautiful with the flower girls each having theirs made of buttons.  What a great idea!  The dress was on mannequin, a nice opportunity for some photographs before Vicki stepped into it.

Vicki looked absolutely stunning in her knee length dress.   She twirled around in front of the mirrors, who couldn’t feel like a Princess in a room like this?   So many photo opportunities to be had including some shots with one very proud dad!

Meanwhile, the cool Groom and his Groomsmen were enjoying a photo session with Fran in a nearby suite before heading off to the bar for a pre-ceremony tipple or two.  The dry humour shared between these guys was fun, they were clearly so relaxed together.

As the ceremony time grew nearer, guests started to arrive into the very grand ceremony room.   The Bride and Bridesmaids made their way along the corridor which made for some lovely black and white shots, something they’d requested from us.   The ceremony room is nice and long giving the Bridal Party a beautiful entrance.  The Bride’s father sings and had recorded the music for Vicki’s arrival.  What a lovely touch that was, we’re not sure how she managed to keep the tears at bay . . . !!

After the beautiful ceremony the Bride and Groom made their way into the sunshine with their guests.  They were blessed with an incredibly sunny day and enjoyed drinks in the courtyard.   The courtyard and archway made for some lovely shots of the Bride and Groom with their friends and family.   Just through the archway are the green and gorgeous grounds of Gosfield Hall with some ancient trees and parkland.   Perfect for couple shots with the little Bridesmaids joining in to help with the framing!  Confetti was thrown on the steps and guests enjoyed outdoor games on the lawn.

The Wedding Breakfast was served in the Grand Dining Room, and grand it certainly was!  Vicki and Nick made their entrance to the applause of friends and family.

Whilst the guests were enjoying their meal, we set up our Creative Studio for fun portraits of the wedding party.  Armed with props and ideas the guests posed for fun photographs and the evening guests joined in too.  This is a little like a Photobooth but with an actual photographer taking the photographs and encouraging guests to have fun with the props.  With lots of dancing and a great party atmosphere I think it’s safe to say that everyone had a great time!
