Wedding Photography at the Keeper and the Dell
Rachel and Andy’s wedding at the Keeper and the Dell was such an incredible day to be a part of, made no less so for being able to catch up to, Laurs and Matt, a bride and groom whose wedding I photographed a few years ago, as well as some of their same friends and family.
Rachel and Andy got married in an outdoor ceremony at Keeper and the Dell – an idyllic woodland wedding venue in Norfolk between Norwich and Fakenham. They both looked absolutely amazing. Andy dressed in a sharp suit and shades and his beyond stunning bride in her Jimmy Choos – a gorgeous pair of strappy high heels – tea length wedding dress and a colourful floral headpiece perfectly matched to her bouquet!
“Thank you so much for capturing the day perfectly, it really was like having another friend at the wedding. ? Your amazingly shot pictures will keep the memories of our wedding alive for years to come. Anyone looking for a photographer, look no further Rob Dodsworth is a must! Xx”
The day was one of the most relaxed weddings I have ever had the pleasure to be a part of and tradition was well and truly out the window which, is precisely what the couple had planned and hoped for! Their goal for their big day was for it to be fun and laid back – perfect for my style of wedding photography and The Keeper and the Dell most certainly lends itself to that kind of vibe. Drinks were served pre-ceremony, while the Bride and Groom mingled with their guests for a good hour or so before they tied the knot. With everyone in good spirits and the sun shining bright, guests took their seats for an informal ceremony, conducted by Andy’s dad and Rachel’s brother. You can see from the photos how much fun they had with it!
After the ceremony, there was plenty more fun and games, lots more drinking and dancing to tunes by Miserable Man, who was anything but – seriously, check him out!
There were no formal speeches, receiving lines or, cake cutting, Rachel and Andy took to the balcony to thank everyone for coming but otherwise the day really was as free-wheeling as it is possible to be – the band playing late into the night as the party, I’m sure continued ’til the early hours!
A fantastic day to be able to play a part in, I was treated just like an old friend and I would not have wanted to be anywhere else! Hats off to everyone running the show at the Keeper and the Dell and thanks also for these lovely words…the feeling is mutual and I can’t wait to come back!
“Rob delivered an absolutely cracking gallery of photos from a recent wedding, capturing the day all so perfectly. We always cross our fingers that the Photographer will capture the look & vibe, but it doesn’t always happen ~ Rob did it so well. Thank you for sharing your images with us and we hope to welcome you back to The Dell again.” – The Keeper and the Dell
Thanks you so, so much Rachel and Andy – wishing you all the happiness and I hope you’ll enjoy your photos for many years to come!
