This was my first wedding at the glorious Gosfield Hall in Essex, and it was a belter. Rebecca and Dan chose Gosfield Hall because they fell in love with it on their first visit. I can totally see why! The hall was built in 1545, and it has such a powerful sense of history, being a royal residence in the mid to late 16th century. We had gorgeous weather (it’s so often the case in September – take note, future brides!), so we were able to spend a lot of the day outside in the gorgeous grounds.
Rebecca and her bridesmaids got ready in what is, frankly, the most dramatic bridal prep room I’ve ever shot in. Incredibly high ceilings, gold fittings – it really is a stunning space. My jaw dropped as I walked into it, I could have shot in there all day! Nothing could outshine the beautiful bride, though – Rebecca looked like she was born to be in that space. Her make up and hair was done exquisitely by Rose Redrup. I must add that Dan looked amazing, too! He wore a very stylish three piece suit tweed suit and a bow tie.
Huge thanks to my second photographer, Cristina Rossi, for all her help on the day.
Dan and Rebecca, I wish you both all the best for the future, and thank you so much for inviting us to be part of your wonderful day. x
Amazing shoes by Irregular Choice!
Rebecca’s bridesmaids sang her a little ditty while she had her hair done. I loved it.
This was the first of Rebecca’s two dresses for the day.
See, that dress suited this room PERFECTLY.
Gosfield Hall has the most charming ceremony room with dark panelling and ornate windows. It felt very intimate for such a grand building.
