Abbeywood Estate Wedding Photography

Boasting enough space for a large and lavish affair but with the homely qualities to attract small events too, Abbeywood Estate is a fantastic choice of venue. Everyone is sure to feel complete at ease at this venue. The team have ensured that the venue is the perfect mix of elegant and relaxed. It’s no wonder that Abbeywood Estate is one of Shane’s favourite venues to photograph weddings.
Natural and light ceremony pictures
Couples choosing to host their ceremony at Abbeywood will do so in 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 Abbeywood 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.
Abbeywood at night
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. Shane loves to photograph these moments of weddings. The party is where everyone is their most relaxed and having the best time!
Looking to the grounds of the estate, there are many stunning locations for wedding pictures. The formal gardens are beautifully maintained and full of interesting plants to enjoy. Seven acres are dedicated to the arboretum, home to rare deciduous evergreen trees. The natural beauty all around will have camera’s snapping all day long, not only the photographers!
Beautiful woodland all year
Abbeywood 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. Famed wood carver, Tim Burgess has created some fabulous carvings and rare and unusual plants and shrubs have been planted. The woodland at Abbeywood Estate is particularly beautiful to photograph in the winter months.
Winter wedding venue
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 beautiful 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.
