Newland Hall wedding photos.
I loved working with Liam and Emma. They are a very relaxed couple that I enjoyed meeting each time we got together at my studio in Writtle, near Chelmsford where I meet all my wedding clients. Emma has a fascinating job working for Ede and Ravenscroft where she makes traditional handmade gowns and outfits.
I could really relate to her love of craft and traditional methods of creating something amazing for people .
I asked her a few questions about her wedding at Newland Hall
Interview with Liam and Emma who got married at Newland Hall.
Where was your wedding and why did you choose it as your wedding venue?
As soon as we walked into to Newland Hall we knew it was the place for us. Suitable size, very well kept and professional staff.
What colours did you choose as your theme? Sage/thyme ‘Old English’.
What was your wedding dress like and why do you love it? Very structured long bodice with sweetheart neckline, full skirt with a train. The bodice has a lace overlay which is embellished with beads and pearls. As soon as I put it on I knew it had to be my dress, it suited my body shape and the style of the wedding.
I didn’t really intend following this tradition with the exception of one, the something old. On the morning of the wedding my bridesmaid sewed a bow onto the top of my train that was made of lace that my great grandma used to work with nearly 100 years ago. It meant a lot to my mum and Grandad.

The cake was five tier, two of those were dummies and the others were lemon, chocolate and Madeira. It had a wide lace ribbon with small lengths of pearls and pink handmade sugar flowers.
I started with bridal magazines for some inspiration, but they focus on current trends and I wanted something different to the bright trends that are current. I mostly just thought about what I liked and what would complement the venue.
The Hutton florist did our flowers and they were very accommodating and helpful. The arrangements were perfect, and exactly what we wanted.
Also Marion from Marion’s cakes did an amazing job with our cake, it looked lovely and tasted great too!
On the day before your wedding make sure everything is ready and laid out by midday so you can relax for a while before the big day.
I like that – I say the same. Hit the ground running… Be relaxed at least 24 hours before your wedding…
Yes, definitely. Gavin is flexible with appointment times and we never felt rushed or pressured. He is chatty and laid back which helped put both of us at ease (especially on our engagement shoot) as we don’t really like having photos taken! Would recommend.
Awww shucks! Thanks…
Enjoy the pictures…
