One of our favourites from earlier this summer. What an absolute treat to shoot this one! Details galore, two lovely families and a beautiful new venue for us at Kenton Hall in the lush Suffolk countryside. There are so many priceless little moments in this film, from Dad’s first glimpse of the dress to an impromptu first dance rehearsal at sunset. The very talented bride Kristin also hand crafted all the wedding signs (Victoria Steward Signs). Pleasure as always to work alongside photographer Dominic Whitten once again too.

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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
