Truly, a beautiful wedding | Teybrook Orchard | Essex Woodland Wedding Venue

We all need a bit of escapism right now don’t we?

Roos & James held their wedding at Truly Quirky Wedding Venue, Teybrook Orchard, an Essex woodland wedding venue. It was beautifully captured by the very talented Ella of Ella Violet Photography.

These photos are heartwarming and just what we need right now. If you are planning a wedding for 2021 you need to get your eyes all over this.

Where did you two meet?

We met 10 years ago in Queenstown, New Zealand travelling. I used to go to School with Nat and Archie (founders of Browning Bros.) so had heard a lot about what they were doing at their sites. With a bit of research we realised that Teybrook Orchid ticked all the boxes for us. We were looking for a bohemian style site with camping, campfire and tons of nature.

Three reasons you chose this venue?

One. Nature. Two. Really helpful staff, especially Helen. Three. The site just had a great feeling (we knew straight away with the first visit that this was the venue for us).

Any advice to offer couples with your newly acquired hindsight?

Plan well. On the day itself, relax and enjoy. We did a weekend wedding, where we invited everyone on the Friday, the day before our wedding day. It helped to break the ice and it really made people relax naturally into the weekend. If you have the chance to do this, do it.

Favourite moment of the day?


We can’t pick a favourite moment, sounds cheesy and cliche but it was all brilliant.

Will you be going back?


We hope to visit Teybrook either this year or next year to stay on the camping and re-live the big day. Just the two of us this time.

Over to Ella . . .

This was my first wedding at the Teybrook Orchard site, I’ve previously worked at their sister venue Chalkney Water Meadows. I love Browning Bros. super relaxed approach to weddings. I absolutely love shooting outside, as I like to work with predominantly natural light so really this venue is a dream for me. The ceremony area under the dappled sunlight is just gorgeous!



There are so many beautiful locations to photograph at this Essex woodland wedding venue from the gypsy cart, the bell tents, fields, woodland the list goes on. My favourite photos from the wedding are the ones in the long grass, Roos is swishing her dress and they both just look so unbelievably happy.
