A Gorgeous Winter Wedding at The Oaksmere in Suffolk

The wedding I photographed yesterday for MJ and Chris was seriously one for the books! The whole day was filled with so much love, fun, and emotion - I couldn’t help but get caught up in the excitement myself.

First of all, let me start by saying that it was a super intimate affair with only 8 guests. Can you believe it? I absolutely love shooting small, intimate weddings because it feels like you’re really part of something special. And boy, was this one special!

The venue, The Oaksmere, was an absolute dream. With the winter sun shining, it looked absolutely stunning. It genuinely created a magical atmosphere. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect setting to capture all those precious moments.

Now, let’s talk about the bride and groom, MJ and Chris. These two are an absolute blast!
From the moment I met them on a zoom call just a few weeks ago, I knew we were going to have a great time together. They are so down-to-earth and genuinely fun to be around.
It’s couples like these that make me love my job even more.
They trusted me to capture their special day, and I couldn’t be more grateful for that.

The whole day was filled with laughter, tears, and so much love. There was something about the intimate setting that made everyone let their guard down and just enjoy the moment. I’m telling you, it was truly special.

As a photographer, there’s nothing I love more than capturing those natural, candid moments. The little glances shared between the couple, the playful moments with friends and family - those are the images that really tell the story of a wedding. And let me tell you, I got some absolute gems from this day that I know MJ and Chris will cherish forever.

And of course, it’s super fun to crack out some fun poses here and there too and the occasional creative shot, like the beauty at the end of this blog created with just a torch and little piece of copper pipe.
So, that’s it - my little recap of this incredible Suffolk wedding I had the pleasure of documenting. It’s days like these that remind me why I fell in love with wedding photography in the first place. The joy, the happiness, and the overwhelming sense of love - it’s all so rewarding.

Massive thanks to all of MJ and Chris’ guests for making me feel so welcome and to all at The Oaksmere for taking such good care of me - especially Ana who was just incredible all day (and didn’t even mind that I stole the happy couple away for 15 minutes between courses to get some extra shots)

The most amazing day for a wonderful couple.
