Kayleigh & Mark: Wedding at Bedford Lodge, Suffolk

Updated: 2 days ago


A wedding Photographers Guide

Today our blog and small guide features Kayleigh and Mark's Wedding,

Venue: Elveden Church followed by Reception at Bedford Lodge, Newmarket, Suffolk

Elveden Church

Eleven Church is a great backdrop for a ceremony. Its interior, cloisters and grounds are great for those memorable images.

Our signature heart shape drone shot in the grounds of he Church.


Bridal Prep.

With most of our couples we begin the day with Bridal prep. Our aim is to tell the story of the day, in pictures, from the preparations to the first dance as a married couple. Bridal prep is about the bride (and her bridesmaids) relaxing, reflecting and occasionally panicking BUT always good fun!

"First look" is always a great shot and requested by many of our couples. Having 2 photographers means you don't just get proud Dad's reaction, we get the bride's too.


The ceremony was held at Eleveden Church.

After the ceremony

This cloister shot is one of our favourites at the venue. It's a classic. The bride and groom opted for some formal photos at the Church and some more at Bedford Lodge. It's their day so why not?

Bedford Lodge!

Always friendly and great service. The ballroom ready for the wedding breakfast.

Time for some fun photos with the Bridesmaids.

Later in the day there was some rain - traditionally rain on a wedding day is supposed to bring good luck. We always have a Plan B to photograph inside, if the weather doesn't behave.

Cake Cutting.

First Dance

And then.... a different Dad/Daughter Dance -

The Bride's Dad really entering into the spirit of things.

Time to Party and really let your hair down.

We hope our images have helped inspire you. If you are looking for photographers who always provide 2 shooters on the day, who will get to know you and what you want for your day, and to accompany you on your wedding journey why not get in touch - info@awakenimages.co.uk.

If you're contacting the venue, don't forget to tell them where you saw it.
