Toni & Laurence's wedding at Colville Hall in Essex
Toni & Laurence – Where it all began
Toni and Laurance’s story began when they met at university and culminated in their wedding at the stunning Colville Hall in Essex. Following their pre-wedding engagement shoot at Belhaus Park in Upminster, we knew we’d have a great time as the official wedding photographer and videographer for their all-important day.

Colville Hall is primarily a working organic farm that produces organic wheat for the family’s mill in Chelmsford, but doubles as one of the most fantastic wedding venues in Essex.

The Stable Block at Coville Hall provides 4 additional en-suite bedrooms and sleeps 10 with 1 family room, which is an excellent option for any additional guests.
Ceremony – The Orchard Barn
While you can have an outdoor wedding ceremony at one of the licensed gazebos, Toni and Laurance opted to get married in The Orchard Barn with a string quartet. This is one of the two barns at Coville Hall and is used primarily for wedding ceremonies and drink receptions. It is an attractive timber building with high vaulted ceilings and a beautiful location for elegant wedding ceremonies.
The Gardens & Grounds
The Gardens and grounds at Coville Hall are simply stunning. They provided a wonderful backdrop for portraits. Especially the open fields for “Golden Hour” sunset photos.
The Reception – Mill Pond Barn
Mill Pond Barn at Covill Hall was the venue for Toni and Laurance’s wedding breakfast and reception. With its 30-foot glass doors and views overlooking the beautiful duck pond, it really is spectacular and impressive. Toni and Laurance chose Marion from Poppies Floral Design for their floral and table arrangements, which were absolutely stunning. We were also lucky to work with Egg & Moo’s Bespoke Wedding Cakes again who we first had the pleasure of working with on a styled inspiration shoot at that amazing place.
