Hutton Hall wedding

New wedding venue

A recent new wedding venue for the Weddings industry. Hutton Hall wedding venue has everything a couple could want or their wedding at an exclusive wedding venue. Recently refurbished to a very high standard, this wedding venue offers superb value for money that other wedding venues in the area are charging almost double for.

To myself, as a professional wedding photographer, the backgrounds and atmosphere of any wedding venue are everything and can be what makes or breaks a descent wedding image.

Located just outside of Brentwood in Essex in the village of Hutton, easily accessible form the m25 and A12. Hutton Hall is a beautifully restored Grade 2 Georgian manor house

The Sweeping driveway to manicured lawns, the grand hall with its original stone floor, and roaring Jacobean fireplace, the grand oak staircase. The piano room and library, their original high Georgian ceiling, and sash windows allowing lots of natural light to permeate the rooms with warmth from the log fireplace, on a cold winters wedding evening.

Bridal suite

Oh, what a room! Large totally white, masses of room, no clutter to get in the way or trip over, lots of natural light from the tall windows. No need for flash in here, just lovely warm natural light. A photographer dream of perfect light.

Blue Room

The blue room lovingly restored to its former glory with its blue paneled walls and Georgian windows allowing soft light to flood the room. Large enough to hold at least a hundred guests for your wedding and also doubles as the room for the first dance.

A Scottish wedding

The Wedding of Paul and Sam Easton. A late December wedding. All Scottish in all its glory right down to the Au natural of the under the kilt and the real Scottish accents, which I couldn’t understand. Even the dog had a kilt.

Although the lawns were unusable due to the weather, there were loads of photo opportunities within the grounds of Hutton hall, group shots and sparkler confetti styled shot at the front of the house, no problem with damp grass and sinking high heels. The red brick wall of the House and roses garden for the more intimate shots.

Back to the Blue room for the 1st dance and let the party commence.

Hutton Hall wedding venue really does have it all and really is the epitome of a luxury wedding venue. Represents outstanding value for money.

Mulberry House Ongar

Mulberry House Ongar

Mulberry House wedding Ongar.

A lovely place for a wedding set in beautiful lush grounds on the Chelmsford road with easy links to the M11 and M25

The wedding of Jordan and wendy in late 2019. A truly beautiful wedding. And a very wonderful couple.

As wedding venues go, Mulberry house Ongar is a lovely little wedding venue. The house itself a late Georgian Squires house has everything you could want from a wedding venue. As you walk in, a big reception room styled in the feel of a grand country manor house. The original high sash windows permeating lovely natural light. The wedding suite and its sunken bath, decorated in Victorian style overlooking the grandiose gardens.

Everything flows at Mulberry’s house. A dedicated ceremony room more than large enough to hold one hundred plus guests. Which also doubles as a turnaround room for the smaller wedding reception. The kiss the rings, signing of the register. Shots with family and friends. Then it’s outside onto the gravel courtyard for pics in front of the house. Onto the extensive lawns for canapes and drinks then the big group shot on the lawn overlooking the pond.

Mulberry house grounds

The grounds are what really make mulberry house a wedding venue. Twenty-two acres of manicured lawns and the pond. With its bridge is a superb place to get that just married romantic shot. Reflection in the water with Mulberry house in the background. The photographer trying to avoid getting attacked by the resident swans on the banks of the pond.

Wedding guests drinking and chatting in the gardens. Bride and groom soaking up the sun and lovely ambient light shining through the trees. whilst enjoying a glass of bubbly or two.

The good thing about the venue is that even if it’s raining there’s plenty of space in the house itself to get smaller group shots and when there is a gap in the rain onto the gravel driveway for shots in front of the house.

Wedding Breakfast

A very large permanent Marquee for the wedding breakfast with its own bar. Attentive and friendly staff. With the 23 furnished bedrooms right next to the  Marquee. Guests can literally fall into their rooms after a hard night of dancing and partying.

Then as the sun is going down on a warm balmy evening, a romantic sunset shot of the couple in a loveling embrace with the sun shining through the trees in the background.

From a wedding photographer’s point of view, this venue has it all. The wedding suite is perfect for natural light shots and the grounds are extensive and make perfect backdrops. The pond is great for reflections in the water and the way the sun sets in the evening makes for stunning sunset shots. My only criticism is the tea rooms are open to the public so when there’s a wedding going on the public has free use of the building.

 

 

 

 

 

Wedding at Ingatestone Hall

Wedding at Ingatestone Hall

 

Wedding at Ingatestone Hall

This has to be a prime 1st class venue. Wedding at Ingatestone Hall.

A Grade one listed Tudor country house with extensive manicured grounds this really is the most exquisite wedding venue in Essex

The oak-panelled stone hall with its original stone flooring and oak panelled walls give a Georgian feel to the  atmosphere

The long gallery with portraits of the Petre family and containing displays of memorabilia accumulated over the centuries.

So if you’re looking for a wedding venue that’s is in the same class as a venue such as Leez Priory or Hedingham castle then this is the place to hold your wedding.

The Grounds

A wedding photographer’s dream.

The long sweeping driveway leading to the clock tower finely manicured lawns and that’s just the front of the house. Through the house and into 10 acres os superb landscaping. The stew pond and its walk of ancient Lime trees and the former swimming pool now a lovely little duck pond and with Ingatestone hall in the background a beautiful backdrop for romantic images of a wedding with reflection in the water.

The Wedding

For the wedding of Ryan and Laura in June 2019, this was going to be a truly stunning wedding.

The Weather was looking like it was going to be a typical English wedding, rain, threatening on the horizon, luckily turned out to be warm and cloudy, Perfect conditions from my point of view as the wedding photographer. Not too hot and ugly direct sunshine in people’s faces causing the shadow.

With bridal prep in a rather lovely cottage right next to the main hall and with Laura’s father being the head Gardner, the grounds where manicured beyond perfection.

As with all weddings, introductory music is the norm, slightly different when the groom sings his own recording of songbird for the bride’s grand entrance and what a masterpiece it was, little did I know that he appeared on the voice and what a beautiful voice he had too.

With the wedding in the library with its lovely natural light, oak panelling and high ceiling this was the perfect place for a small intimate wedding.

Wedding photographers dream

Outside for canape’s and group shots then off to the rather large ornamental lake. The stew pond and walk of lime trees for reflections in the water, beautiful intimate shots around the pond.

By this time the weather had changed, and the sun was out in all its glory, no more shaded clouds to hide behind. Time to set up off-camera flash in high sync and to shoot wide and fast and if you’re a photographer you’ll know what the means. Dramatic clouds coupled with very fast apertures.

Speeches, not the standard boring cliched words dragged off the internet but some real heart to heart words from Ryan’s brother, the flamboyant one.

I loved this couple they were up for taking pictures and to be honest both natural, no directing with these two, just natural-looking poses. Laura really knew what I was going to ask of her before I asked it.

By the time of the evening guests arriving the weather was starting to turn and then the heavens opened up with pouring rain, albeit warm rain. Can’t be all that bad

For a wedding at Ingatestone Hall, you really can’t go wrong it really is one of the finest wedding venues in all of Essex.

A great wedding for a lovely couple. With lots of outgoing bubbly friends and guests, superb wedding breakfast from Limeberry catering this is what really makes a wedding worth filming. Normally Speeches are pretty much predictable. Not so this wedding, Jordan the best man stole the whole show, so outgoing and every line was an original.

Although the lawns where unusable due to the wet grounds, there was loads of photo opportunities within the grounds of Hutton hall, group shots and sparkler confetti styled shot at the front of the house, no problem with damp grass and sinking high heels. The red brick wall of the House and roses garden for those more intimate shots. In fact, Hutton hall has so much to offer any potential wedding couples.

It has the grandness of any of the top Essex wedding venues and is on an equal par with Gosfield hall , Braxted hall or even Down hall.

Back to the Blue room for the 1st dance and let the party commence.

As a new wedding venue, exceptionally good value for money.

Richard Kinsley Photography Engagement Shoots

One of the greatest features you can get with Richard Kinsley is the engagement photo shoots. He highly recommends and looks forward to the engagement shots as it’s the perfect time to get to know the couple and familiarize them with Richard himself. His forte is making sure everyone is comfortable in front of the camera, to get to know what the couple’s likes and dislikes are, work together and become a team.  Having the comfort and trust that is built will benefit any couple, in hopes to become closer and comfortable with one another for the big day.

He aims to make the atmosphere relaxing and casual, removing any stiff or formal feel that couples are accustomed to. During the engagement photo shoot, couples will have one-on-one time with Richard and have that quality time to acquaint with one another. The couple will get a trusted friend by the time the photo shoot is complete rather than having just another photographer show up and do things just the way they want; on a special day. What’s even better still, the engagement shoot is complimentary. They are free when booking Richard.  When contacting Richard, request the free complimentary engagement photo shoot.

 

Richard Kinsley Photography Styles

Richard has worked with so many different couples and personalities; he truly understands what it takes to have lasting pictures turn the way the couple envisions. His dry sense of humor and laid-back personality strays away from too serious scenarios. He believes in a laid-back and casual atmosphere because that’s exactly what the picture will portray.  Awkward and serious ambiances will make for awkward photos rather than effortless ones that flow.

 

Being in the wedding biz, Richard knows romance.  From the poses to the softening of the photos, he embraces the love between the couples.  The event is a romantic one and he specializes in knowing just how to create and portray it.

 

As for editing, he’s favorites are the classical romantic black and white photos. He captures real moments of the couple, rather than staged poses.  He avoids overly-done, rigid, and unnatural actions that come with being camera shy. He understands that not everyone stands in front of a camera every day and that the pressure of the wedding can intimidate anyone. Richard Kinsley also recognizes that not all couples share intimacy the same as the next couple does. He strategically follows each couple to capture real interaction between the two, raw emotions and the specific love the couple has between each other.

 

He chooses backgrounds that suit the couple’s energy and as you look through his portfolio, each background goes perfectly with the couple in the front. Whether they’re simple like standing in front of a beautiful reddish brick wall, or the complex detailing of an old cobblestone bridge, he knows what works best for the personalities of the couples as well. Not into the classical look? Why not sit romantically on a motorcycle or vintage car? Want a regal look? Richard knows the ideal castles! Or for the classic greenery landscapes, he knows of plenty of gardens and parks. The message here? Richard accommodates the very best with every couple that works with him.


Much of the style consists of a mixture of both classic and contemporary with crystal clear details; from trimming within the pillars throughout the historic hallways down to the beautiful crystal beading of the wedding dresses. Richard Kinsley Photography will capture colours making each and every picture stand out. Photos can be taken with a fisheye lens to portray a fantasy-type of panoramic look adding a distinguished touch.

Whether you’re camera-shy, our professional team will comfort your needs and walk-through with you to create the perfect pose, making them appear effortless and social-media worthy.

We understand that couples should be proud and excited to have their family and friends look back at their unforgettable events.

Every little moment will be captured with care, from the Bridal prep, the dress, shoes, makeup and all the little things which are never remembered on the Wedding day, up to the speeches, the first dance as a married couple, to the cake cutting, every moment is just as important as the last.
