Mangapp Manor Wedding Photographer | Hannah & Carl

Mangapp Manor Wedding Photographer Essex

Mangapp Manor is beautiful a wedding venue in Burnham-on-Crouch, Essex. A 16th century Manor House set amongst beautiful flowering gardens, Mangapp is popular for a good reason. The best reason though is perhaps the ability to get married outside, undercover and over a lake! I was only too happy to be Hannah & Carl’s Mangapp Manor Wedding Photographer. Not only had they chosen a stunning venue but they were pretty awesome themselves too. Although in hindsight I seem to have eliminated all evidence of it in my photo selection for this blog, they took on a Star Wars theme for their wedding! There is however one picture that will give this away…

I started the day taking some pictures of Hannah, her bridesmaids and her Mum in Mangapp Manor itself. Hidden away from the arrival of the boys they were attended to by hair and make-up artists Sarah & Katie. It was obvious from the outset that the day was going to be a scorcher! One of the many good things about Mangapp though is that no matter what the weather, you just know you’re going to be ok. If it rains you can still get married outside under the gazebo on the lake and the guests will remain dry in their undercover area on the lakeshore. If it’s a hot one there are lots of shaded areas. We certainly needed shaded areas that day!

The walk down the aisle at Mangapp Manor is a beautiful one – from the cottage, through the flower gardens, past the guests and then over the bridge to the gazebo. The ceremony felt very intimate on the gazebo but the guests were still in earshot thanks to the PA system. Following the ceremony there were drinks, group photos, garden games and a rather handsome musician called Stevie Appleton who had many of the female guests swooning!

The wedding breakfast (wierd term that isn’t it?!) and evening receptions at Mangapp take place in their rather lovely permanent marquee. Hannah and Carl were treated to a friend singing beautifully to them during the speeches, a particularly touching moment. The evening party was a lot of fun. So much fun that one guest even managed to chip his tooth on the dancefloor! I stayed until the very end and loved every minute. Thanks so much Hannah & Carl for inviting me to be your Mangapp Manor Wedding Photographer. Your wedding day was stunning.
