That Amazing Place Wedding Photography

View of Hubbards Hall, known as That Amazing Place

The Venue

This was my first visit to That Amazing Place a former 15th century monastery nestled in the beautiful Essex countryside. It is also known as Hubbards Hall, but I think ‘That Amazing Place’ suits it perfectly. When I visit a venue for the first time I usually arrive early to have a good look around. My approach is to document the day naturally, rather than plan shots, but it’s good to get some ideas for places for the portraits and family groups.

I arrived to find the florists in full swing creating a stunning floral arch, and Ellie getting ready in the Wedding Cottage.

Marriage Ceremony

At 2pm the ceremony took place in the Lakeview Lounge, a bright and elegant space with gorgeous bay sash windows providing views towards the lake. After with the guests spilled out into the beautifully manicured garden with confetti and bubble blowers at the ready to shower the newly married Mr and Mrs Freeman.

Portraits in the beautiful gardens

For the portraits I was spoilt for choice. The rambling gardens provide endless possibilities and top marks to Ellie and Michael for being willing to wander through the woodland around the lake in less than ideal outfits. These natural and relaxed portraits are my favourite photographs from the day and I’m particularly pleased with the shot from across the lake, the couple framed by trees and selected in the water. I’ve also included some photographs of the very friendly and inquisitive cat who joined us for a while and took great interest in my camera and had a good nose about in my bag of lenses.

This was a wonderful day, and I hope the first of many more visits to a truly ‘amazing place’. Thanks so much Ellie and Michael for having me along to photograph your day, it really was a pleasure.
