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!

A traditional English Garden wedding with a Greek twist! Right from the first time Eleanor & Antony talked us through their plans for their unique day we were super-excited to capture it on film. With the girls getting ready at Eleanor’s parents, Rich headed across town to capture some of the traditional Greek Groom preparations. Its fair to say Antony was already pretty emotional at this stage, surrounded by his family and close friends as Mum Nina and Best Man Lenny led the proceedings. Eleanor totally arrived in style with her Dad at Lound church which was totally full to the brim with guests on a super warm and sunny day! The look on Antony’s face was priceless as her first laid eyes on Eleanor at the Alter. After a dual English/Greek ceremony it was a quick trip around the corner to the stunning Somerleyton Hall for lots of lounging around in the sunshine for the new Mr & Mrs and their guests. These two were total pro’s and needed absolutely no direction on our little jaunt around the lush gardens, despite the blistering heat (although Antony did have to ditch his tweed jacket!). And then came the dancing!
It was great to be back at Parklands, Quendon Hall for the lovely Mr & Mrs T’s lush Spring wedding. Historically speaking this place is pretty significant for us as we shot our very first wedding here many many years ago. These guys were such an awesome couple to spend the day with. Lindsay literally didn’t stop smiling and giggling all day and James looked as proud as punch as he was reunited with the stunning Lindsay at the top of the aisle. After the ceremony we managed to tear them away from their guests for a quick jaunt, alongside the lovely Katherine and Lizzy from Katherine Ashdown Photography, through a gorgeous treelined avenue of daffodills behind the Hall just as the sun came out! Happy days!
Nothing beats a good old outdoor ceremony so we were chuffed that the weather held out for Lindsay & Lee at Dunston Hall. As the girls spent a chilled out morning getting ready in The Penthouse, the boys enjoyed a round of golf to attempt to calm the nerves. Lindsay’s dad looked the picture of a proud Father as he accompanied her across the back terrace and down the aisle. An all-round awesome couple, family and day!
For Ellen & Peter’s North Norfolk wedding, the weather played a game of two distinct halfs – both of which added something a little magical to this Sneak Peek. You’d be forgiven for thinking we shot this on 2 different days, one of which looks like the bleak mid-winter (it was in fact June). You’d also be forgiven for thinking we ventured off to a Misty Moor somewhere in the North of England rather than the “sunny” North Norfolk seaside town of Sheringham. It all turned a bit ethereal as the mist swept across the rolling hills of Sheringham Park and we half expected King Arthur to come galloping through our shot! Then as the sun burned away the fog, Ellen, Peter and their families and friends enjoyed a glorious afternoon which ended with a spectacular magic hour. Unpredictable British weather at its absolute best!
It was a case of “four seasons in a day” for this beautiful wedding at the Bride’s family home in North Norfolk. Whilst the weather kept us on our toes, it didn’t stop Sarah & Thierry from making the most of their stunning surroundings. It was delightful to see Thierry’s French clan enjoying the uniquely British wedding customs and bringing some of their own along for good measure – including an impromptu and rousing rendition of La Vie En Rose! As the sun went down the temperature plummeted, but Sarah & Thierry bravely ventured out and enjoyed an epic Golden Hour.
There’s something very special about having a good old kneees up on the family farm, especially when there’s a wedding involved too! Cat, Dan and their family truly transformed an empty field just outside of Woodbride in Suffolk in to a glorious reception venue, complete with an epic marquee from Suffolk Marquees, bouncy castle and rodeo bull. They also treated guests to some scrumptious food from Baytree Pizza & Catering, which we kindly sampled for them. Bride Catriona looked stunning in one of our favourite dresses of the year and Dan didn’t scrub up too bad either (also one of our favouite wedding suits!).
