Janene and Steve’s summer wedding at Blake Hall in Ongar, Essex

Janene and Steve’s Blake Hall Wedding was everything I’d expected and more. The sun was shining beautifully over the May bank holiday weekend and made this gorgeous venue in Essex look even more spectacular than I’d imagined.
It’d been quite a while since I’d photographed a Blake Hall Wedding, so I was really looking forward to the day. Having recently undergone some significant works to renovate their barn’s, Blake Hall has really become something to be rivalled. The addition of huge windows throughout adds so much natural light to the barn, making it a brilliant setting on a sunny day. And when you throw the fantastic work of the florist over at The Flower Mill into the mix, well, we have something close to perfection going on.

I asked Janene and Steve why they chose this venue and actually one of the reasons makes it one of my favourites too. (FYI – it’s the bit about Willow Trees);

“It was the first place we saw and we fell in love straight away! We wanted a rustic barn venue and it ticked all the boxes! Plus my favourite tree is a Willow Tree and framed by the ceremony barn window is a huge Willow!”. 

I remember grabbing a coffee with Janene and Steve at the start of 2017 when they booked me for their wedding day and I left our meeting thinking “I want these guys to be my friends” they were that kind of lovely. On their wedding day, the kindness just oozed out of them and the smiling and laughing didn’t stop.

Even though Janene claimed she was mega nervous when I arrived in the morning, I thought she looked so relaxed during morning preparation. The bridesmaids all seemed superly chilled too, in the very capable hands of talented Makeup Artist’s Lisa Alger and Kirsty Alger.

Here’s a little preview of their beautiful wedding day at Blake Hall.
