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.
Flashback to a gorgeous wedding late last year that we shot up in Tydd St Giles. We had such a chilled out morning with Victoria and her lovely family that it was easy to forget we had a wedding to film! We had plenty of time to play about with shooting the dress and shoes. As a result we captured our absolute favourite dress reveal, with the help of Father Of The Bride Mervyn who helped us hang it under an arch in his beautiful garden. After the ceremony we headed over to the Dukes Head Hotel in Kings Lynn where staff had been busy bees creating Victoria’s vision for the reception. So much attention to detail to capture on film, from the table decorations to the stunning cake which all culminated in confetti canon’s for their First Dance. However, the speeches were the real highlight of the day as the Groom, James, paid a heartfelt tribute to his family and his gorgeous wife, with not a dry eye in the house (us included!).
Steph & Nick’s wedding day was made even bigger with two sets of Bride & Groom preperations (once at The Angel Hotel and again later at Hengrave Hall), two very different dresses (both stunning) and two ceremonies (one intimate civil service and later a church blessing). We loved how despite the doubling up of events, each felt so unique as if we were capturing a completely different wedding day. Even with the packed schedule we still managed to sneak in a super-quick dash around the gorgeous gardens at Hengrave Hall to film Steph & Nick before their wedding breakfast (just the one this time!) and evening festivities kicked off. Phew…what a brilliant day!
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!
You can’t get more Norfolk than a wedding at The Boat House overlooking the good old Norfolk Broads. When we first arrived in the morning the sky was looking a tad brooding. Little did we know it would reward us with a magical moment later in the day…
We love how The Boat House delivers even if the weather doesn’t and Ellen looked absolutely stunning as she walked down the aisle to meet Louis with the lush and tranquil Ormesby Broad as their backdrop. Later, as we whisked Ellen & Louis off for a quick sunset shoot (with the awesome Mr James Rouse) an awesome double rainbow appeared above them as they stood perched out on the jetty across the broad. Enchanting!
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!
Norfolk’s beautiful 12th Century Langley Abbey has been on our wish list of venues to film for a long time and we finally got the chance to shoot a wedding there earlier this year with the awesome Becky & Paul and their families. Lots of giggles were had with the bridesmaids at home in the morning, whilst Paul and his groomsmen enjoyed some chill out time at the rural Sunnyside Barn. As if there’s wasn’t already any doubt Becky & Paul were a perfect match, they suprised each other with similarly themed photo books of the journey their relationship had taken leading up to the big day. Cue the perfect combo of tears and laughter! Becky looked absolutely stunning as she arrived fashionably late and Paul looked completely floored as he caught his first glimpse of her walking down the aisle. The 900 year old Langley Abbey didn’t scrub up too badly either thanks to the awesome Sarah at Wedding Inspire. After an awesome first dance performance from Bill Downs, the party well and truly kicked off down in the crypt!
When we first met Mandy & Nigel, we just loved how they exuded such a warmth and respect for each other. This warmth was also extended to everyone involved in helping turn their wedding plans in to reality. So much thought and effort was put in to every detail on the day from the gorgeous displays courtesy of Tracy from Timeless Florals to the awesome team led by Daryn at The Cliff Hotel. Whilst Mandy was getting in her stunning dress, her Groom Nigel arrived in style on a vintage Lambretta (with an accompanying entourage of scooters) which we could hear coming a mile away. There’s a lovely whimsical moment right at the very end of this sneak peek which sums up this lovely couple perfectly.
