Blake Hall is always one of our favourite venues to work at. Since we first shot there a few years ago it’s just got better and better. So when C&A got in touch with us regarding their wedding at Blake Hall in Essex we really hoped that they’d want to book their date with us! Thankfully they did. And from there, the wedding countdown was on.
Just over a year later their day finally arrived. After a week of horrendous weather it felt like a bit of a miracle when we work up to dry pavements and blue skies. And the beautiful weather only continued throughout the day.
Wedding ceremony at Waltham Abbey
I spent a fun filled morning with Claire and her girls getting ready in the stunning bridal cottage. Before long it was time to head onto Waltham Abbey for the wedding ceremony. This was somewhere truly sentimental to the couple having also hosted other family events there. Aside from a bit of traffic on the way there, things went off without a hitch- it was nothing that a traffic conducting vicar couldn’t fix!
The rest of the day was spent at Blake Hall, eating, drinking and enjoying one anothers company. It was nice to see a familiar face in Steve Hearn who provided caricatures for guests during the drinks reception too.
C&A were such a joy to work with and we cannot wait to share some more from their day at Blake Hall in Essex with you. In the mean time, you’ll find below a couple of teaser images whilst we work on the full gallery.

We do our best to give credit where it is due, using the information provided for us by our wonderful couples. In return we kindly ask that you do the same. Please do not screenshot or attempt to save the low res files from this blog, they will look awful if you try to re upload them and that reflects really poorly on us.
