Gosfield Hall near Braintree in Essex is a fantastic venue to photograph weddings, full of character and charm. Many great backdrops inside and out, vast rooms & windows, staircases, grounds, expert staff, catering and service ensure your wedding day will be without a hitch!
Our experience at Gosfield Hall began when it first opened for weddings in 2005. We have been on Gosfield's recommended list from it's very beginning as a wedding venue.
Using the latest digital photography equipment and techniques, our professional service captures every aspect of your wedding day; the details, the atmosphere, storyboarding your whole day as it happens.
The bulk of the day is spent photographing in a reportage style, ensuring you spend plenty of time with your guests. People usually find these candid photographs a lot more relaxed, and we capture more of the atmosphere of the day.
The formal line-ups need not be too formal, and the posey shots are usually far from posed. ‘Arranged’ is a better term, we feel posing you too much won’t ever look natural, we’d much rather photograph you looking comfortable and relaxed, arranging you in beautiful surroundings for memorable photographs.
We always ensure the photos are whatever style you wish them to be, at some weddings we spend the entire afternoon taking formal family portraits, at others only a handful of arranged groups are required. They can be as formal or candid, classical or contemporary as you’d like them to be. It's up to you.
We upload your photographs to our website after the wedding (if you so wish), so your guests can order photographs online without any inconvenience to you. These can be password protected too if you wish, so only guests from you wedding can see them. Here you can also see the entire selection of photographs from recent weddings as a potential customer.

Here I kep bright flowers in the foreground. the courtyard is always so full of bright colours.
A nice photo to show the bridal bouquet, and also show some dress detail.
A photo in the small dressing table mirror liek this is a nice way of framing the composition, in a room where most of the mirrors are huge!

Making use of interior settings at Gosfield Hall, before we step outside for photos in the grounds.
Keeping bright flowers in the foreground here brings even more colour to the image.
A walking photo gives a candid feel.
Here I got into a position with greenery in the close foreground too, I ike the fuzzy feel the grasses give to the corner of the image.
My remote flash giving more character to the first-dance photos than simply filling the room with light as bouncing the flash would have done.
The 'reservoir dogs' photo shows the groom and groomsmen in a relaxed psoe, and all smiling.
This is the only time the rings won't be on the bride & groom's fingers forever, so i ask the ring-bearer to hold them for a photo.
The groom walked to church. I raced ahead to photograph the guys as they approched from the other side.
Details at the church - some poppys growing on the wall here make a great picture.
The church has a nice light feel. I had to choose my angle and arrange this photo cleverly to hide less tidy areas in the background!
The 'Spirit of Ecstacy' on the front of the vintage Rolls Royce deliberatly left in shot here, recognisable despite not being the focus of the image.
Pulling the focus to the front of the car. A very iconic image, plus the sun gleaming!
Back at Gosfield Hall, courtyard in the distance in full bloom.
Walking gives a nice relaxed feel. Here at the rear 'red side' of the building, showing the gorgeous blue skies also.
Keeping the stone urn in the same plane of focus as the bride & groom, the defocussed background showing colouful plants and lush green lawns.
Asking the bride and groom to stand with shoulders square to each other, then asking them to ook at the camera, look at each other, then kiss, gives me three very different pictures in no time at all!
Iconic imag of Gosfield, with one of the stone stags, and showing the blue sky weather!
I set up remote lighting during the first dance, it always shows more texture on fabrics than any normal or bounced flash.
