You can try using ArrayPlot with custom tick marks:

vals = Union @@ bigramCountsMatrix;
ticks = Thread@ {Range@ Length@ ordmap, ordmap[[All, 1]], 0};
cdf = Interpolation[
   MapIndexed[{#, (#2[[1]] - 1)/(Length@ vals - 1)}&, vals],
   InterpolationOrder -> 1];

gr = ArrayPlot[bigramCountsMatrix,
  FrameTicks -> {{ticks, None}, {None, ticks}},
  PlotRangePadding -> 0,
  ColorFunction -> (GrayLevel[1 - Sqrt@ cdf@ #]&),
  ColorFunctionScaling -> False]

Export["/1.png", gr, ImageSize -> {Automatic, 768}]

Also note that your graphics weren't aligning properly because of
ImagePadding and PlotRangePadding:

Grid[{{Graphics[{Red, Rectangle[]},
    ImagePadding -> 0, PlotRangePadding -> 0],
   Graphics[{Green, Rectangle[]},
    ImagePadding -> 0, PlotRangePadding -> 0]}},
 Spacings -> 0]
