Boreham House Prom Photography by Gavin Woollard.

Boreham House Prom photography

I’m looking forward to seeing loads of you at your prom night over the next few weeks at at Boreham House.
I’m sure all the girls will look stunning and the lads will look marginally better than they do on a normal school day.
Just a quick heads up as to how things will work.
I will be shooting the prom portraits in the beautiful wedding room that everyone will go through before heading into the pavilion. There’s a lot of you to photograph in a short space of time.

I photographed over 25,000 people at Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle during my career and we will organise your prom photography in a very similar way.

So, to make things run smoothly and make sure everyone that wants me to photograph them gets the chance there’s some ways you can help.

1 – Only people that choose to have their portrait done and pay on the night will be photographed.

That way I can spend more time helping those that choose to have them done to look amazing.
There is, of course, no obligation to have them done (but you might not be this well dressed again until you get married!) . Cash or card payments can be taken. Please bring one or the other.

2 – Have a think about your group of friends. I will be shooting magazine style groups. Think of ‘Made in Chelsea’ or ‘the Kardashians’.

So, if you have a bunch of friends and you want a fantastic portrait this is a great opportunity.

You may also want a picture with a special friend (prom date maybe?) .  You might like an individual portrait.

We will offer 2 sizes of print. 8 x 6 inches at £10 or 10 x 8 inches at £15.

3 – Do be aware that images will not be going online so if you would like to order a portrait a decision will need to be made on the night.

4 – Time permitting we may be able to do a group shot of everybody just before you go to eat so if you would like a copy of that you may order one of those as well.

As I say this is time permitting so you would need to gather everyone together after we’ve done all the group images.

This is the sort of cool group portrait I took at last years proms.

Boreham House Prom

Once again I look forward to photographing you all at your fantastic Prom night at Boreham House.

My daughter had her Sandon School Prom at Boreham House on Tuesday 4th July. She didn’t have any money on her.

She has given me your business card so I can contact you about a photo.

Is too late to order a photo?

Many thanks.

My son attended the St Martins Prom on Friday 7th July 2017 at Boreham House, Chelmsford. The school sent a letter before the event advising that photographs would be available for sale after the event. Could you please advise how I can do this.

Many thanks
Michele Crawley

Gavin - July 12, 2017 - 10:49 am

Hello Michelle,
Thanks for your message.
I’m not sure why the school said that as they were told by the venue that pictures were available to purchase on the night only.
As there has been some miscommunication please email and we will try to sort out an alternative. Regards Gavin Woollard photography

My apologies, my son did order on the night and hadn’t told me.

Mulberry House wedding for Sophie james

Mulberry House wedding – Sophie and James


Mulberry House wedding.

I just love a wedding at Mulberry House. And not just because I can virtually fall out of bed into the venue! I only live five minutes away and my studio is ten minutes away.
It must be said that weddings do not come any better than James and Sophie’s.

I’ve often said that the reason I still love shooting weddings is the atmosphere that is created by a couple in love when they share that day with the special people in their lives. This wedding was as much fun and contained as much love as I remember in all my years of shooting weddings.

Mulberry House is real gem of a wedding venue. Beautiful grounds, stylish rooms and great service make it many couple first choice for their wedding venue. I am proud to have worked with them ever since they built their first website. My pictures still feature on their website many years on.

I have an album at Mulberry House as well as one in my studio. If you would like to discuss your wedding photography please don’t hesitate to get in touch. My studio number is 01245421224 or my contact page is at the bottom of the pictures. You can also email gavinwoollard at gmail dot com.

In the mean time feast your eyes on the beautiful wedding of James and Sophie from September last year.

I  look forward to us designing James and Sophie’s wedding album.

Oh, and I do travel outside of Essex of course but it does seem after years of local work that 95% of my wedding work is local to my studio. Which is just fine by me. Thanks for reading.
