“Thanks so much for the photos – we absolutely love them” – Gabrielle & Sam
Gabrielle and Sam’s Wedding at Leez Priory
Leez Priory in Chelmsford, Essex was crowned three times Winner of Wedding Ideas Magazine’s ‘Best Wedding Venue’ and it’s no surprise to see why. This magnificent Tudor mansion has become one of the most sought wedding venues in the country with over twenty five years of experience. It’s set within 40 acres of parkland and features lakes, lawns and a sweeping gravel driveway.
Gabrielle and Sam are a lovely couple who originally met on Tinder and quickly feel for each other! When they asked me along to capture their Autumn wedding last October I was really excited to be back at Leez Priory as there are always so many backdrop opportunities for great photos. I met Gabrielle in the morning as she was getting ready and the dramatic light indoors made for some lovely portraits of the bride to be. I headed down to the bar to meet Sam and the guests before the ceremony took place in the magnificent Great Hall. The weather outside was grey but made for some lovely saturated tones for their couple shoot around the grounds and lake. The newly converted Coach House provided the perfect setting for the speeches and wedding breakfast. After a few atmospheric evening shots it was time for the evening reception and party to begin back in the main building and the day finished off in style. I really enjoyed capturing this very relaxed wedding and Gabrielle and Sam loved their photos……
