We love what we do because we love telling good stories. It was also a welcome return for us to Southwood Hall after a couple of years away. Breaking from tradition, the Maid of Honour Rachel gave a heartfelt speech which worked perfectly as a narration for Rebecca & Nathan’s rather sweet little tale of how they met. Earlier in the day Nathan looked as proud as punch to see his two gorgeous little ones Jackson and Esme walk down the aisle followed by Rebecca, who looked stunning in her dress and carrying her baby bump with style! This is a story that has so much more to tell…

Flashback to a gorgeous and glitzy winter wedding…
The more we visit the lovely Bassmead Manor Barns, the more we’re convinced it exists inside its very own little weather bubble. Paula & Tony’s mid-winter wedding day began shrowded in heavy fog and we were convinced the sun wouldn’t break through at all. But it did and with it came some of the most magical and stunning winter light we’ve seen in one of our films. Paula looked stunning as she took the (very) short journey from the Bridal boudoir to the beautiful Rickety Barn which was decorated with plenty of twinkly tealights and fairly lights to add even more glam to the occasion and Tony looked super sharp in his Tux too. We even managed to convince the new Mr & Mrs to brave the sub zero temperature for a quick sunset shoot in some of that very special Bassmead golden light.
We love late-Summer rural set weddings they often present us with a good excuse to go wandering through fields of gold to get that perfect shot. All the details from the day were exquisite, from the stunning dress, the gorgeous table decorations to the jaw dropping wedding cakes (all 3 of them!). Emma & Rob were up for pretty much anything we asked of them as we explored the grounds as Bassmead well and truly delivered yet another legendary sunset!
Flashback to a gorgeous late summer’s day and an epic wedding at one of our favourtite Suffolk venues, Marsh Farm. It’s fair to say Gemma & Kieran were pretty humbled as they witnessed their loved ones assembled under one roof for their big day, with the Groom’s Welsh clan mingling seamlessly with Gemma’s Suffolk contingency. From the moment we arrived there were plenty of giggles and a few tears from the bridal suite whilst nearby Kieran and the lads enjoyed a chilled out morning playing pool. So many lovely moments in this teaser, including the bride literaly dancing down the aisle followed by the loudest “woo-hoo” ever recorded as the new Mr & Mrs Wilson were finally declared husband and wife!
Back at one of our favourite Norfolk wedding venues for the lovely wedding of Justine & Jason at Hales Hall.
So many things to love about this one…. stunning dress, gorgeous bride, an emotional groom, epic venue, an awesome bridal party (and family), top-notch photographer (James Rouse) and some cheeky late afternoon golden sunshine which we just had to take advantage of after a grey start to the day. Justine & Jase were determined to get as many great photos and video moments as possible so were more than happy to let us drag them off around the lush grounds of Hales Hall, although pretty much no direction was required on our part. These two simply knocked it out of the park!
We’re excited to finally be able to show you a sneak peek of a gorgeous wedding we shot earlier this year at the lovely Bassmead Manor Barns. When couples write their own vows it always adds something a little extra special to not only the ceremony but to the finished film. Add in a stunning bride, a Groom in full army ceremonial uniform, a Guard Of Honour, an awesome acoustic performance from the Bride’s brother and lots and lots of sunshine and you a have an all-round epic wedding day. As the sun began to set over Bassmead we caught Becky & Ben performing impromptu rehearsal for their First Dance in the final moments of the golden hour. Lush!
Another first for us on Hannah & Gavin’s wedding day saw the bride and groom getting ready in plain sight under the same roof! It wasn’t a break from tradition though as this was actually round two of the wedding, after a sun soaked celebration in Cyprus the previous week. So with the pressure off it was a chilled out morning of preperations (and laughs!) followed by a beautiful ceremony at Docking Church and then on to The Red Barn for a quintessentially English Vintage tea party, complete with some gorgeous table decorations and bunting to set the scene. What a brilliant day and lovely couple.
…and the award for best First Kiss goes to….
Hannah & Dan decided to brighten up the shortest (and often the gloomiest) day of the year by bringing together families and friends for a gorgeous winter wedding at Elms Barn. Despite the dark skies and blustery wind, they pulled it off in style and even bravely managed a jaunt around the gardens with us and James Rouse at Elms in the afternoon. Stay tuned to the very end of this sneak peek for an awesome sparkler extravanagza!
We got a sense of how fun this pair were going to be from their pre-wedding gifts to each other. Groom Bob made Bride Sara chuckle with his Minions and Friends references and Bob was rewarded with a very special suprise from none other than Sir David Attenborough himself. The Rickety Barn at Bassmead Manor Barns looked stunning as did Sara as her Dad walked her down the aisle, after which guests were treated to garden games and delicious canapes while basking in some glorous golden sunshine. Another highlight was the speeches, where in addition to the ususal suspects Sara also delivered a very touching tribute to both her family and of course her new Husband. A perfect day all round!
Great to be back at Marsh Farm late last Summer for Emily & Ryan’s wedding day. There were some familiar faces amongst the bridesmaids and it was great to catch up with the lovely Beverley Harrison Photography as always. Emily looked absolutely stunning in her dress and her veil took on a life of its own during the afternoon couple shoot, which made for some awesome shots on the jetty. What a lovely chilled out day all round!
