We were thoroughly spoilt on Jess & Kristain’s big day – blessed with the perfect combination of a super chilled couple, blue skies, the lush venue and gardens at Chippenham Park, a beautiful outdoor wedding, lovely personalised vows, kilts…we could go on! Later these guys totally nailed their afternoon shoot around the gardens and parkland and needed no direction from us whatsoever, looking totally smitten with each other all day. Gorgeous!

Another lovely new venue for us to have a good old nose around… But before the afternoon celebrations kicked off at the lush Kenton Hall we headed deep in to the rural Suffolk countryside for Luke & Kristin’s morning preperations at their respective family homes. After a quick dash to the beautiful Dennington Church, Kristin and her proud Dad Greg had quite the walk to reach Luke at top of one very long aisle! Later, it was blue skies all the way at Kenton Hall as guests chilled in the gardens. The attention to detail was off the scale, with all the signs around the venue hand made by the very talented bride herself at Victoria Steward Signs. We were blessed with some gorgeous early evening light as we took the new Mr & Mrs off for for a wander. These two were so super-chilled they even treated us to an impromptu first dance rehearal as the sun set behind them. Magic!
Great as ever to work with brilliant photographer Dominic Whiten too.
We love what we do because we get to hang out with awesome couples like Amy & Joe! It was a total pleasure spending the day capturing their wedding alongside fellow Norfolk boy Jamie Groom Photography. We loved how relaxed these two were in front of the cameras and they totally nailed their couple shoot. As we took a walk around the grounds at Bassmead Manor Barns they needed no direction at all. We also loved that Amy decided to break with tradition to give a speech alongside her new hubby and we’ve blended some highlights of this in to their little Sneak Peek.
Long sweeping driveway…check! Lots of Autumnal colours…check! Stunning handmade wedding decor…check! Add blue skies and heaps of sunshine and you’re spoiling us! We started the day at The Oaksmere Hotel in Eye with that aforementioned long treelined driveway as childhood sweethearts Paige & Sam got ready literally in neighbouring rooms. We’re not quite sure how everyone managed to keep them from seeing each other but they did! Then it was deep in to the rolling Suffolk countryside to the little gem that is Wingfield Barns. White pumpkins lined the driveway and along the aisle and the attention to detail was incredible, all hand-created by Paige and Sam. After a beautiful ceremony complete with personalised hand written vows, guests lined up for a Autumn twist on confetti as they threw lots of orange leaves on the new Mr & Mrs. There were so many places to explore for our couple shoot and Paige braved the cold and ventured through woods and across windswept fields to capture some absolutely gorgeous shots.
It was a big family occasion at Sprowston Manor, with plenty of well behaved little ones running around in the morning as the Bride and Groom got ready at opposite ends of the hotel. Paula’s proud son Liam accompanied her down the aisle as Andy’s son Mark performed Best Man duties for the day. We spent the afternoon dodging showers but we still managed to get them out for a quick shoot, all while enjoying their well deserved G&T’s! Later, Paula’s Mum Connie stole the show with a heartfelt speech which you can hear a little of in this Sneak Peek.
Lovely as always to work with the brilliant Beverley Harrison Photography too!
It was back to Elms Barn for the 2nd time this last year for Tom & Jasmine’s big day. So many memorable moments in this one and plenty of laughs along the way. After nipping off to Beccles for a lovely ceremony at the very grand St Benets Church it was back for a fun packed afternoon at Elms Barn. Jasmine needed no encouragement when Tom offered her a piggy back ride through the rose garden! Later, as they got one last practice in for their First Dance routine, we we’re treated to an epic pink sunset. Lovely as always to catch up with Mr Luis Holden Photography again too!
It was a jaunt up to Lincolnshire for Charlottle & Russell’s wedding at the stunning St Mary’s Church in Spalding, just a stones throw from the bride’s family home. Meanwhile over at the Poacher’s Country Hotel Russell and the boys took a number of attempts to tie their cravats (all captured on film of course!). After a grey start to the day the sun finally made an appearance at the church and the light through the stain glass windows was stunning. We had a good explore around the church grounds with the awesome Heather Jackson photography and stumbled across some very “rustic” (ie dilapidated) old wooden doors which made for an great looking backdrop for our couple shoot.
We’ve been lucky to capture Bassmead Manor Barns in every season and late Summer is definately one of our favourite times there. Whether it be the huge expanse of wheat fields either side of the driveway or the garden in full bloom, there’s so many places to explore. Lynsey was safely hidden away in the Bridal Boudoir whilst Tom and the boys ran last minute errands around the venue and before we knew it Lynsey was whisking proud Dad Peter down the aisle! After a quick whistle stop circuit around the Bassmead grounds (including those awesome wheat fields) it was time to let Lynsey & Tom enjoy the rest of the afternoon with their friends and family in the aforementioned garden. Guests donned complimentary sunglasses (given as favours) for the rest of the day and night…even on the dance floor! The party was off the scale as we headed off in to the night after another fun day at Bassmead.
A super-duper chilled day at the gorgeous Bruisyard Hall in Suffolk for Dani & James. The sheer dedication these two have for each other was clear for all to see as Brusyard’s Barn was filled with a whopping 1,000 paper cranes – all hand made by Dani & James a show of love and commitment.
We also loved that they both decided to get ready under one roof – the girls occupying the light and airy Bridal Suite and the boys downstairs in the plush Snooker Room. We spent the morning nipping down corridors and hallways (and a few staircases!) to capture all the special moments as they unfolded. Then it was off for a jaunt through the lushious Suffolk countryside to Kelsale Church for a beautiful ceremony followed by a run through some bubble “confetti”. The weather tried (and failed) to get the better of us in the afternoon but we still managed a quick walk around the grounds for a laid back couple shoot with the new Mr & Mrs, including some last minute practice for their First Dance (which they totally nailed BTW!). Great fun to work with the talented Hayley Denston Photography (along with her husband David!) which made the day even more awesome.

The long tree-lined driveway has always been one of our favourite shooting locations at Bassmead Manor Barns. With those big wide vistas across the Cambrideshire countryside it always makes for a grand entrance. However, none have been grander than Sam in his very understated Red Ferrari! Just a few feet away, the Bridal Boudoir was a hive of activity as Charlotte & her Bridesmaids were busy with hair & make-up. Favourite moment No.1 was Charlotte walking out to greet very proud (and emotional) Dad Andrew just before the ceremony. That aformentioned driveway was put to great use later in the afternoon for some gorgeous shots in the fields at sundown.
