Back to the Garden | A North Norfolk Wedding

Kate & Neil's relaxed Back to the Garden Wedding, Holt

Kate and Neil married on a bright, crisp day in May at the fabulous Back to the Garden wedding venue near Holt. The morning began at Kate's parents where I was treated to her mum's home cooking before making the short walk to the local parish church in Langham. It's a beautiful church and one I would be lucky to visit again, just a few months later, for a Norfolk farm wedding.

After their church service, the newlyweds headed down to Morston, on the North Norfolk coast, where we took in the views and I made some portraits of the couple before heading on to their reception for great food, great speeches and some amazing dancing.

A great couple, I was so pleased to share in their day and I can't wait to put their wedding album together - enjoy!


Pentney Abbey Wedding | Amy + Tim

A Summer wedding at Pentney Abbey

Amy and Tim were married at the fabulous Pentney Abbey wedding venue. Just a few miles from Kings Lynn and an hours drive from my home in Norwich, the abbey has been lovingly restored to create a very special and romantic wedding venue. Pentney Abbey lends itself well to small, intimate ceremonies and is run by the fabulous team at Unique Norfolk Venues. I'm pleased to say I'm one of their recommended suppliers.

Amy and Tim were all smiles and laughter during their ceremony and their family and friends shed a few tears. The smiles and laughter rubbed off on everyone and continued throughout the day. We enjoyed some fabulously sunny weather (dodging just the odd shower here and there), a good amount of Pimms and some of the best wedding food going from the amazing Florentina Events.

Thanks to Amy & Tim for having me along to share in their day. I can't wait to deliver their wedding album. Here are a few highlights from their wedding celebrations - enjoy!

Claire + Andy | Brasted's Wedding

Claire & Andy's Brasted's wedding in Norwich

Claire & Andy married at Brasted's, just outside Norwich. Claire was on fine form for her bridal preparations, clearly enjoying every moment as Zoe from GirlyGlam set about her makeup. Andy, meanwhile, definitely the more nervous of the two, soon relaxed after the first look as his bride arrived at the top of the aisle. Both of them were beaming ear to ear!

A fine reception in the gardens of the hotel, where, as the Pimm's came around, we were entertained by Martin, a wedding magician extraordinaire.

Besides their hospitality, Brasted's is well known for some of the finest dining in wedding world and it didn't disappoint - we dined like kings before dancing late into the evening!

HALES HALL BARN | A NORFOLK WEDDING

HALES HALL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

They are just amazing, thank you so much! Lucy can't stop looking at them.

An amazing day with amazing people, at a stunning wedding venue just south of Norwich, Hales Hall Barn. These two did not stop smiling, ear to ear grins, all day!

I started out with the girls getting ready over in Wymondham with the two Laura's, Laura Hughes on hair and Laura Dosset on make-up. Afterward, I joined the boys at the barn and getting a sense of the excitement building as the guests began to arrive.

The ceremony was truly beautiful. A number of Lucy and Elliot's friends contributed their talents to make it sincerely, very special and very, very moving.

Heading outdoors, the sun was shining. Everyone enjoyed some time on the lawns before some fantastic speeches and an incredible party that continued late into the night, with the guys from D & H Entertainment.

A really special couple, genuinely warm and easygoing, it wasn't hard to see how they'd come together. It was truly an honour to play a part in their day - thanks guys, here's some of your highlights - enjoy!

NORFOLK MEAD WEDDING | CLAIRE & STUART

NORFOLK MEAD WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Just one from the wedding of Stuart & Claire last weekend at the Norfolk Mead Hotel in Coltishall.

It was a very cold day so, these two cuddled up nice and close as I pressed the shutter button. Then I jumped in there for a quick cuddle too - it really was very cold!

More from these guys soon but if you can't wait for those, then hop over here to see more of my wedding photography at the Norfolk Mead - 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!


Lenwade House Hotel | Norfolk Wedding Photographer

Norwich Wedding Photographer

This wedding, in late Autumn, began at St Giles House Hotel where the bridal preparations got into full swing with champagne and laughter and the 'occasional' blue joke! The day continued with a beautiful ceremony at St Giles on the Hill church which, if you are familiar with the city, sits right in the heart of Norwich, not far from the market and from the City Hall, a wonderful example of 1930's art-deco architecture. The party continued with wedding breakfast and reception held at Lenwade House Hotel in North Norfolk.  The city, as well as the countryside around Lenwade House, nestled in woodland and landscaped riverside gardens, provided some wonderful backdrops for portraits of the newlyweds.  Although the staff at the hotel were quick to provide umbrellas, as it threatened to rain, it remained dry for much of the day and we were treated to some beautiful late evening sunlight. Another wonderful opportunity to team up with Katherine Ashdown Photography, here are just a few images from the day.

Norfolk Wedding Photographer | Dairy Barns Wedding

Dairy Barns Wedding Photography

Norfolk abounds with some amazing and wonderful wedding venues.  Next year, amongst others on my bucket list, I have the pleasure of working at Chaucer Barn, Narborough Hall and Kimberley Hall!  Norfolk is also home to the broads and some of the most beautiful and varied coastline in the country which, never fails to provide inspiration, or, indeed, act as a stunning backdrop to my wedding photography.  This particular wedding at the Dairy Barns on the North Norfolk Coast was one such occasion.  An incredibly cold and blustery day, Tony and Mandy braved the winds and donned their wellies for a walk along the beach to capture some gorgeous portraits.  Another fabulous opportunity to work with Katherine Ashdown and the amazing Emily of Love Moi Makeup.  My best wishes to Mandy and Tony, a truly wonderful couple - enjoy!

Dairy Barns Wedding Photography | Norfolk Wedding Photographer | Sneak Peek

Another preview, from a beautiful wedding in the Norfolk Broads.  This image sets the scene, just moments before the bride will marry her groom.  She and her father, arm in arm, take the steps up to the Dairy Barn at Hickling.  The near silhouette of a bridesmaid, leading the way up the aisle and the wedding guests to the left of the frame, help to give the image context and work to frame the bride and  her dad.  A particular favourite from the day and a further opportunity to work alongside the fab Katherine Ashdown.  More from this fantastic day to follow soon.
