Always a pleasure to be back filming at Bassmead Manor Barns. With bride and Groom Vicky & Paul both getting ready on site and everything so close to hand, we always find outselves capturing lots of extra moments in the last few hours leading up to the ceremony which we would otherise miss out on at other venues. While Vicky & her bridesmaids were enjoying a chilled out morning of pampering in the bridal boudoir, Paul and his best men were running around the venue setting up for the speeches and checking the final details were in place before getting suited and booted. After checking the coast was clear Vicky and the girls even managed to sneak out in to the Rickety barn for an inpromptu aisle walk rehearsal with plenty of giggles along the way! Here’s a little sneak peek of their upcoming film…

Flashback to an awesome summer day at Elms Barn in Suffolk for Maddy & Sam’s wedding. After an intimate ceremony at Fritton Church we worked the blustery weather to our advantage for an epic confetti run! Later, back at Elms Barn we were blessed with blanket blue skies as Maddy & Sam literally giggled their way around the rose garden for the couple shoot.
Good fun working with Mr James Rouse Photography again too.
Flashback to a cracking Autumn day with blue skies all the way. We have a real fondness for Autumn weddings and sweethearts Paige & Samuel really set the benchmark high on their day. Paige’s hand made details were truly off the scale and she’s realy put an extraordinary amount of effort in to every last detail. The day started at The Oaksmere in Eye where the B&G got really just a few feet apart in neighbouring rooms. How they managed to avoid bumping in to one another we don’t know! After a stroll down the sweeping tree-lined driveway for some shots in that amazing golden light, it was off to Wingfield Barns for the Ceremony, which included beautiful hand written vows. After an awesome autumn leaf inspired confetti line, we whisked the new Mr & Mrs off for an explore around the rolling Suffolk countryside. An all-round perfect day!
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.
We finally got to tick another venue off our wish list back in August, for the lovely James & Dani’s wedding at the stunning Bruisyard Hall in Suffolk and it didn’t disappoint (we’re also a sucker for a long sweeping driveway!).
Dani & James and all of their families and friends were assembled under one roof in different ends of the building to avoid bumping in to one another. This made the morning preperations all the more special and laid back. For us it was also much easier to capture all those special moments without having to travel too far (except for a few trips up and down staircases!). Origami also played a vital and unique role throughout the day with paper flowers and more importantly a jawdropping thousand paper cranes (all hand made by Dani & James) suspended from the barn and in the church at Kelsale. All in all, one of of favourites couples and venues of the year!
First time working with the lovely Hayley Denston Photography too!
When it comes to editing our wedding films we always start with the most important ingredient…the story, or more specifically THEIR story. Finding those emotional, funny, thoughtful and plain ol’ sloppy romantic moments can sometimes be tricky but in the case of these guys it all started with Charlotte’s Nan. In the Bridal Boudoir at Bassmead Manor Barns, Charlotte tearfully read out the heartfelt letter her Nan had given her and we just knew we needed to find a place for it in our film. Thankfully Nan agreed to secret record herself reading it out and we all manged to keep it a suprise until the film was unveiled to Charlotte & Sam a few months later.
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.
Joanna & Ryan definately picked a cracker of a day to get married and what better venue to enjoy the sunshine than at Elms Barn where the rose garden was in full bloom. These two were super easy to work with and need no direction as we took leasurely stroll around the grounds and across the bridge as the golden light filtered through the trees. Beautiful!
