Kesgrave Hall Wedding Photographer
Milsom’s Kesgrave Hall, located just outside Ipswich, is a boutique Georgian Mansion hotel featuring a luxurious spa and brasserie restaurant, all nestled in the midst of some stunning countryside.
I was delighted to be asked to be Katherine and Matt’s Kesgrave Hall Wedding Photographer. Previously I’d shot a couple of weddings at Talbooth House & Spa, another Milsom’s Hotel venue, where the food, service and ambiance had been exceptional. So I was excited to see what a Kesgrave Hall wedding would look like! I was not disappointed. Set in 40 acres of woodland and lawns, Kegrave Hall is a stunning venue and the Hanger is perfect for a wedding of up to 160 guests. What got me particularly excited when I had a little look around, were the bluebell woods. Katherine and Matt had timed their wedding perfectly (4th May) for the bluebells to be out in full force in the lovely woodland adjacent to the hall.
Katherine & Matt’s Wedding
I enjoyed capturing some photos of Katherine for an hour before they headed out to their wedding ceremony at St Mary the Virgin church in Great Bentley. I’ve seen Katherine and Matt at at least three weddings now so it’s like hanging out with lovely friends! The highlight of the morning for me was Katherine and her Dad’s first look. You can see that below.
The vicar was also familiar to me that day – I’d worked with him before as he was the father of the groom for a wedding I shot a few years prior. Really lovely guy. Wanted me to stay at the back of the church all the time and I got some lovely shots from there regardless.
Some heavy scattered showers made the day a bit more interesting particularly as one shower happened just as we were walking back after taking some photos in the bluebell woods! One brilliant member of staff came running out with an umbrella to save K & M from getting too wet! Pic below also.
The food and the following party were pretty epic. It was such a great space for a medium to large wedding. We also had some fun taking some night shots outside before I headed home to Norwich.
Thanks again Katherine and Matt for asking me to be your Kesgrave Hall Wedding Photographer! I hope to see you at another friend’s wedding soon!
