Woolston Manor wedding photography

Suzanne & Scott

Welcome to the blog post of the Woolston Manor Wedding photography.

As far as laid back Bride and Grooms go, Sue & Scott were probably the most laid back couple I have had the pleasure of working with. Sue was super cool, calm & collected & Scott just flowed with the day. They were a real pleasure. The wedding setting was the very relaxed St Pauls Church in Woodford, Essex, and the reception was the rather wonderful Woolston Manor wedding venue in leafy Chigwell.

I had met Sue & Scott earlier in the year at the Woolston manor wedding venue to discuss ideas. A nice surprise was that they would be having a fireworks display, which turned out great, given that I have never shot them at a wedding before. Timing on this would be crucial, to ensure I got the images just right….No pressure there then

How the wedding day unfolded

The day started off at Sue’s mum’s house for bridal prep. The weather was a rather nice and mild day, with a few hints of summer blue sky, which as a wedding photographer is always nice for images. A nice bonus for me also was that Joy (a former window dresser) had beautifully arranged all the elements of Sue’s details, so I just had to take the images.

As always I always give a mention to the wedding venue & this was my first time shooting at the Woolston Manor wedding venue. Read on to see my thoughts about this wedding venue.

Thanks for having me as your Essex wedding photographer – I hope you enjoy the Woolston Manor wedding photography!


Woolston Manor Wedding Venue

I was personally excited to shoot at this wedding venue after seeing it for the first time with Sue & Scott. Woolston manor wedding venue sits on a beautiful golf course in Chigwell, Essex. The actual reception room has quite unique features, and being on the first floor there was a lovely balcony that worked it’s way all the way around the side of the hall. Inside there is plenty of room, so busting some moves on the dancefloor later isn’t a problem for those who haven’t retired their dancing shoes just yet.

Lee, who is one of the directors was a real pleasure to work with. The wedding party turned up a fair bit earlier than expected, but Lee and his team continued to work extremely quickly to ensure the wedding guests were not waiting too long for a welcome drink.

An example of the personal attention you get from the Woolston manor wedding venue is being taken around the whole golf course by Lee himself. We had two golf buggies that took us to some beautiful locations around the golf course for some wonderful images. It is personal things like this that Bride and Groom’s remember, and of course as a wedding photographer it helps a huge amount that you have a venue that is more than happy to work with 3rd party suppliers like myself for the greater good of the bride and groom.

Below are some of the images from this wonderful celebration of Sue and Scott’s commitment of love to each other. Their wedding, their way. Enjoy!
