The Ye olde plough house, Bulphan Essex.
If there was ever a wedding, which stood out from the rest, then it has to be the wedding of Del and Bec at the Ye olde plough house in Bulphan.
All weddings are fun and quirky in their own way.
Some couples are quiet, some brash and loud, hey, each to their own.
With Del and Bec The humour was quite dry bordering on a little dark, but all in a good way A really fun couple to be around.
The venue, itself, from the outside, as you approach from the A128 either from Orsett or Brentwood really isn’t anything special.
It’s when you get inside it feels like a time warp, almost stepping back in time, has that Tudor feels about it. The grand hall feels like a medieval banqueting suite with a high ceiling and exposed beams, stone floor tiles.
“The Monks barn” as it is known really does have that old-world atmosphere about it.
The gardens are superb, laid to lawn, a stream, stone bridge and the centrepiece being the library arch, many a fine romantic image I have taken at this spot. Yes, there are majestic venues that give off that wow factor, but the Ye olde plough house has a uniqueness all of its own.
The wedding was in full swing, it was the evening where everything and everybody came alive, yes the speeches were nice and there was the usual banter and joking, father of the bride reminding his daughter of what a typical teenager she was.
Everyone and I mean everyone was on the dance floor and not just for a few minutes, practically all night long.
I got on so well with Del & Bex that night, they literally forgot I was recording their wedding and it shows in the images.
