A Voewood Wedding | Elisabeth & Simon

Voewood Wedding Photography

Voewood has been a home from home this wedding season – it’s been a couple of months though since I was last there and I’m feeling a little homesick! And so I took to reminiscing over Elisabeth and Simon’s wonderful Voewood wedding in North Norfolk this afternoon. Here’s a few of my favourite photographs from their day.

When I arrived at Voewood, preparations were busily getting underway. The main hall, under the watchful eye of David Bowie, was being decorated with balloons. Elisabeth and her bridal party were in the honeymoon suite having their hair and make-up done and Simon was busily playing pool!

Quirky Wedding Venue

Elisabeth and her bridal party were getting ready in one of the lightest rooms in the house. A Country Life article in 1909 described Voewood thus: ‘Everywhere there is sweetness and light ‘ add to that a great sense of space, numerous quirky little features and the most eclectic decor and you have one of the best alternative wedding venues around. One of my favourite things about Voewood is the light and space and the fact that more often than not, the Bride and Groom can both get ready at Voewood and not risk bumping into each other, such is the size of the place!

My Favourite Moments

Two of my favourite photos on this particular day were of Elisabeth’s mum and dad. They are pictures of pure joy upon seeing her for the first time in her wedding dress!

It was a perfect day all in all, an absolute dream wedding. Simon waited nervously by the inglenook fireplace in the main hall as Elisabeth, escorted by her proud father, came up the aisle to meet him. The love in their eyes, as they met for the first time that morning, still makes my heart melt.

Following a beautiful ceremony, a truly great gathering of friends and family, helped the Voewood party house truly come to life.

A huge pleasure to have been a part of this day. A massive and heartfelt thanks to the #sillystodel – enjoy.

A Chilled Out Pre-Wedding Shoot at Home in Norwich

Pre-wedding photography in Norwich

Manon and Dave are friends of a couple whose wedding I photographed in Summer last year.  These guys, like their friends, were nothing short of amazing - really lovely company to spend the day with and they wined and dined me too! What could be better than that?

If you'd like to know more then check out this page for details about pre-wedding photography but otherwise dive on in!

This pre-wedding shoot happened almost a year ago now. That has flown by! It took place at their apartment in Norwich. A stunning space to photograph in. Dave put some of their favourite tunes on the turntable and he and Manon enjoyed some brunch followed by a lazy afternoon, reading and cosying up on the sofa. It was a really relaxed in-home session and I couldn’t have spent it with a lovelier couple.

Sadly, I won’t be there for their wedding. It’s in France and I’ll be photographing a wedding in Mallorca. As much as I’d love to be in two places at once, I’ve not figured out a way to do it … yet! But I’m so glad I got to meet these two anyway. Many thanks to Nicola and Joe for recommending me (Nicola and Joe's Hautbois Hall wedding is on the link!).

And to Manon and Dave, thanks so much for inviting me into your home. It was an absolute pleasure - enjoy!

Norfolk Mead Wedding Photography

A Wedding at the Norfolk Mead

A wedding at the Norfolk Mead is always good fun. It's a boutique hotel wedding venue in Coltishall, just a short drive outside of Norwich. The food  and drink are amongst some of the best in Norfolk and being set in the beautiful Norfolk Broads it's a very popular Norwich wedding venue.

Louise and Charles got married in Buxton Church before heading to the Norfolk Mead for their wedding reception. An absolutely wonderful couple and a great group of people to hang out with. This was the second wedding for me in as many days (after a Suffolk Wedding on the Friday) and the crowd and the party saw me going strong throughout.

Here's just a few photos from their big day - enjoy!

Boathouse Wedding in Norfolk

Boathouse Wedding Photography, Norwich

The Boathouse is one of the most popular wedding venues in Norfolk. If you love the Norfolk Broads and spectacular views, then this wedding venue could be just what you're looking for!

I first met Lauraine and Matt at a wedding fair and after a couple of drinks together and a pre-wedding shoot, I must say I was really looking forward to their wedding! They're such an easy going couple and I knew that their day was going to be great fun.

It was a wonderful outdoor ceremony, including a boat trip, barbecue food, drinks overlooking Ormesby Broad and later in the evening, Lauraine and Matt took a row on the broad together as the sun began to set!

Fantastic, heartfelt speeches and a party rocked by the incredible Joe Ringer Band, this was a wedding that will stay long in my memory!

An amazing day in a fantastic, special location. It would not have mattered where Lauraine and Matt chose to got married, they and their friends and family would have had the perfect day almost anywhere but having it at the Boathouse was the icing on the proverbial cake, the actual cake was also pretty good!

If you're planning a wedding at the Boathouse, get in touch and tell me more - enjoy the pics!
