There are wedding venues and their wedding venues. Gosfield Hall in the heart of the Essex countryside has to rate as one of the best wedding venues in Essex if not the whole country and recently shortlisted to win the best wedding venue of 2016. Along with its sister venue, Leez priory within the country house weddings group.

The Grandiose English country mansion Gosfield hall has it all. The high ceilings the original massive Georgian windows the Queen Charlotte’s Oak panelled gallery with a 120ft long aisle with loads of natural light. The Tudor courtyard and the opulent master bedroom with its marble columns and a four-poster bed. A beautiful wedding suite if ever there was one.

As with all weddings, it’s the Bride and Groom, friends and guests that make a wedding. Trevor and Tanya were that perfect wedding couple on the most excellent wedding. Trevor “Mr. Guinness” the groom. A real friendly and outgoing guy, couldn’t stop laughing all day and boy he loves his Guinness, a big kid at heart. Tanya, really full of fun and with not a hint of nervousness on her big day, resplendent in her gorgeous wedding dress. With a June wedding, you would expect there to be blazing sunshine, not the very un summery like the weather of late. The sunshine was out and about in the morning and with the clouds moving in the threat of rain was looking ominous. Luckily Gosfield hall is such an excellent venue for picture taking that just as good images can be taken inside as well as outside. With the ceremony and heart shot done, the heavens opened up to two hours of torrential rain, then it was summer again as if nothing had happened. The joy of our gloriously unpredictable weather on an English summer wedding. Then it was family and friends shots moving into the cake cutting and first dance. Towards Dusk a mist descended down on the surrounding grounds for some lovely evening shots with the setting of the evening sun.

A wedding photographer’s dream has to be the master bedroom and it’s reflecting mirrors, the grand staircase, the library, banqueting hall and not to mention the gardens, the list goes on and on
