The Ashford Estate Wedding – Lorraine and Michael

Oct 12, 2017

This past Saturday we had the privilege of shooting Lorraine and Michael’s beautiful Ashford Estate wedding. Filled with elegance and classic style, the couple’s wedding was an idyllic affair. The gorgeous ground of The Ashford Estate provided the perfect backdrop for the couple’s love story to unfold. Keep reading to hear and see more about their high-end wedding!

The exciting day began as most weddings do: The bride was ecstatic and couldn’t wait for the big moment! Lorraine was so happy and eager to get pictures of her big day that our job was a piece of cake. One thing we here at Heyn Photography love is a beautiful and spacious bridal suite (a girl cannot get ready for her big day in a closet), and The Ashford Estate definitely didn’t disappoint. Lorraine got ready in a suite fit for a queen which made the bridal prep photos look like something out of Buckingham Palace!

The couple decided to stay with tradition and did not have a first look. Their ceremony was held at Saint Mary’s of the Assumption Chruch,  followed by family and bridal party photos back at the estate.

Our favorite part of the day was being able to spend our time alone with the bride and groom on the estate grounds. The area was so lovely that we took pictures of the family and bridal party at the back of the estate.  There are so many great places to take breathtaking photos, and the couple had such a beautiful natural chemistry with one another.  One thing that makes our work so enjoyable is being around the amazing energy of love at a wedding and when there is as much love in abundance as there was that day, our job is easy.  The reception was amazing with our friends SCE Event Group. We didn’t want the night to end!

Our team had a great night celebrating Lorraine and Michael at The Ashford estate! We wish them nothing but the best on their journey through life together! <3

Michael’s Details. We love his plum vest and bow tie

Lorraine’s Details. She hand painted those champagne glasses herself?!

Our brides have some serious talent

Absolutely in love with this dress hanging shot!!

I mean, how regal does her Essense of Australia dress look!

A Daddy’s girl, Lorraine had to have a first look with her Dad.  My favorite part of every wedding, when the groom first sees his bride <3

Back at The Ashford Estate! Gotta love the pop of purple from the girl’s plum dresses

Michael’s time in the spotlight

How cute are they!?!

Seriously, there are so many amazing spots to shoot at The Ashford Estate!

We here at Heyn Photography love a little drama, this library was the perfect setting!


It was an honor to capture Lorraine and Michael’s Ashford Estate wedding, a day of pure magic!
