Lydia and Rob’s elegant English Wedding at Gaynes Park, with Ayshea Goldberg Photography

I have been so excited to show you Lydia and Rob’s wedding – there are some amazing ideas and beautiful images, and I love the venue with the lights strung across the ceiling, their portraits are fab, and there’s a gorgeous night time image of the two of them. The bouquet is pretty as well, with lovely shades of white and yellow for a fresh spring bouquet – fabulous.

Gaynes Park wedding on the English Wedding Blog with Ayshea Goldberg Photography (9)

Words & images: Ayshea Goldberg Photography

So many things made this wedding special and memorable. The main thing was that even though the weather was pretty awful, nothing was going to stop them enjoying their day and having their photographs in the gardens and grounds. They’re such a funny couple and took everything in their stride. The planning had been easy and they were very chilled out about everything leading up to and on the day.

Gaynes Park is a beautiful and popular venue in Essex, they have wonderful gardens so lots of pretty backdrops – it’s definitely one of the main draws of this venue. The orangery room where most couples get married is perfect – it’s really bright and airy and the large glass windows bring the gardens inside the ceremony area. The light is beautiful for capturing the ceremony.

There are so many photo opportunities at this venue so I couldn’t wait to work here. Lydia and Rob had chosen a lemon and white colour scheme – very pretty and traditional to suit their style and the venue. Lydia had a very feminine dress that made her look like she was gliding rather than walking along with fresh flowers in her hair – it just added to the elegance of the day, which I love.

The coach house is an old building full of character and exposed bricks and beams and can be decorated however the couple want. The staff are only too happy to make it personal for each wedding and are so helpful for guests and other suppliers.

On the day that Lydia and Rob were married the weather was pretty bad – wind and rain all day, but Lydia and Rob loved the gardens so much they were determined to make the most of it. Unfortunately we couldn’t make the most of the view of the city that you can usually see in the distance, but there are so many areas that we could shelter from the weather in some of the other areas.

Gaynes Park have a really pretty gazebo that has seasonal blooms around it so it’s always a feature no matter which season of the year. It’s lit by fairy lights at night so make a spectacular finale to a couples photography collection.
