Couples choosing to host their ceremony at Abbeywood can do so The Glasshouse. The aptly named glass conservatory is bathed in natural light. Even a grey day will produce quality light for ceremony photographs. This is a key reason why wedding photographers adore working at the estate. Often the lighting can be a challenge when there is a dark room to contend with. A wedding at Abbeywood Estate will make getting beautiful pictures of key moments much easier.
Night time at Abbeywood marks a transformation of The Glasshouse. When the sun goes down the party begins. Instead of flooding the room with light the glass allows a window to the sky. A dance floor is created where guests can party the night away. We love photographing these moments of weddings. The party is where everyone is their most relaxed and having the best time! We always cover from bridal preparation right through until the evening reception. It’s so important to choose a wedding photographer who will stay to get those all-important party pictures. They really finish off a wedding album beautifully.
Abbeywood’s best feature is the stunning gardens. The grounds are beautifully maintained and full of interesting plants to enjoy. Seven acres are dedicated to the arboretum, home to rare deciduous evergreen trees. The gardens will have everyone’s camera’s snapping not just your photographers! Abbeywood also benefits from being surrounded by mature woodland. Newlyweds can take some time away from the reception to have pictures taken in this stunning scenery. Great care has been taken to make the woods enjoyable and beautiful. Abbeywood Estate’s woodland is particularly beautiful to photograph in the winter months.
For winter celebrations there is more sheltered indoor space on offer. The garden cafe is kept light and airy with many windows. The wooden beams create charming character, in keeping with the rustic wedding trend. Having light inside spaces is so important when it comes to getting stunning wedding photography. Photographers use light in all kinds of ways to create wonderful imagery. Naturally light spaces achieve the best results. Abbeywood Estate wedding photography whether inside or outside is sure to be a winner.
