Hengrave Hall wedding photographer: Adele & Matt
Adele & Matt married at Hengrave Hall in Suffolk in October. Their day was wonderful on so many levels and I’m so happy I got to share in it.
Both Adele & Matt were surrounded by their closest friends as their bridesmaids and groomsmen as they got ready. They are both so thoughtful to each other; sending gifts between the bridal suite and the boys’ room. I love that Hengrave Hall has rooms for both bride and groom so close together!
The morning stayed remarkably calm in both rooms with a quite excitement brewing. Zena officiated the humanist ceremony between Adele and Matt. I’m such a huge fan of humanist ceremonies as they are so much more personal to the bride and groom. This was no exception; there was lots of laughter as the guests heard how Matt & Adele met and how they think about each other. Adele’s brother and Matt’s sisters also did lovely, unique readings that they’d written themselves. One of my favourite elements was the acapella band that were hidden away on the gallery balcony to surprise the guests. They were amazing and got the crowd going with The Rembrandts’ ‘I’ll Be There For You’.
We headed outside for some drinks but the changeable October weather drove people into the beautiful Hengrave Hall library. After drinks Matt & Adele were welcomed into the Long Gallery which was decorated to perfection. The whole venue was adorned with homemade rosses from maps and there was a distinct travel theme. The tables were named after places they’ve been and are going.
Adele’s Dad, Matt and the best man Mike did great speeches. They were all touching, funny and delivered perfectly. It was the perfect segway into the evening celebrations. I left everyone to it drinking and dancing and laughing away with the new Mr & Mrs Breen.
What a wonderful day! And if you haven’t seen enough of Matt & Adele, you can check out their pre-wedding shoot here.
