Hadleigh Castle – Lifestyle Photography

I have known Rebekka & Ashley for quite a number of years. I first met Rebekka from the early days of childhood playing in the streets of Linford. Ashley and I then became good friends from days down the pub and most importantly, both sharing the same love for West Ham. So when they decided to book me for their wedding I was over the moon. The guys invited me to their home to discuss the plans and both stated the most important aspect. This was the pure documentary style with none of the traditional, cheesy wedding posing. Of course, this was great to hear because that really is not my style at all. We also discussed their lifestyle photography session at Hadleigh Castle which is always such a bonus for couples. Their dog Winston was also going to come along so this was amazing to hear.

They can see how I work, have some fun and most importantly, realise this is how their wedding will be. They also walk away with beautiful photos which can’t be a bad thing can it?¬† I just wanted to document the simple things that lot’s of couples like to do at the weekend. Enjoying a lovely Autumn day walk, we chatted about the wedding and of course, constantly fussing over Winston. Hadleigh Castle has some great spots for photography lovers with its castle ruins overlooking the Thames Estuary. I can’t recommend Hadleigh Castle enough for anyone that enjoys dog walks. A Cafe is also on site for you coffee lovers.

Gaynes Park Wedding

The wedding is not long away now. As I type this we are already near the end of January 2020 (time goes far too quick) with the wedding only 6 months away. I cant’ wait for the big day where the guys will be tieing the knot at Gaynes Park. I shot my first wedding at Gaynes Park back in 2018 and I really am looking forward to returning. It offers so much rusitc character which really suits my style. But for now, I hope you enjoy some lifestyle photography photos at Hadleigh Castle.
