Back in early August last year I was off to photograph the Suffolk wedding of Anna and Ross.
Anna and Ross are a great couple who, as you’ll see from the photographs below, are very much in love. They had booked me when they were looking for a documentary wedding photographer to cover their wedding at Capel St Mary and Seckford Hall, near Ipswich.
We had met up earlier in the year to do their pre-wedding shoot at Seckford Hall.
Ross is Australian and I think his family had brought their Oz weather over with them as it was a beautiful summers day wedding.
I started at Anna’s parent’s home in Capel St Mary to photograph Anna’s preparations. As well as Anna and her bridesmaids, there was real houseful of children all getting dressed up. Children make great subjects to photograph at weddings as they are much less self-conscious than adults.
Then it was off to the church to catch up with Ross and his groomsmen, all looking the real business in their wedding finery.
The wedding service was a pleasure to witness – relaxed and happy, with a lot of smiles and laughter.
After the service, Anna & Ross had arranged for a drinks reception in the grounds of the church which gave me the opportunity to get some great shots of Anna and Ross being congratulated by their friends and family.
Everyone then decamped and made off to Seckford Hall for the rest of the day’s celebrations. Seckford Hall Hotel is a beautiful Tudor Hotel set in 34 acres of beautiful Suffolk countryside and is a lovely venue for a wedding.
There was plenty of time before everyone sat down for the wedding breakfast to get the few family groups done and to capture some great pictures of everyone enjoying themselves in the summer sunshine.
Here are a few of my favourites from the day – please feel free to comment. A full gallery of Anna & Ross’s Suffolk wedding images can be found in the Nic Skerten Photography gallery site.
