Lorna and Martin - Stunning Godwick Wedding

Lorna and Martin - Stunning Godwick Wedding

Can you believe it? Another awesome blog to show you. Now the weddings have stopped for winter I am typing away and getting stuff done! You all remember that incredible shoot I had with Lorna and Martin at Brancaster right? If not, you don’t know what you missed, get a look-see HERE!

Now you’ve caught up let’s begin. Lorna and Martin and a proper couple of cool dudes! Snowboards, Kites, bikes, Arty stuff and all-round awesome humans. They were getting married at Godwick Great Barn (one of my fave venues for sure) and I couldn’t wait to get going. First I nipped over to see the boys and spend some time with them while they got ready. We all then headed to Godwick via a mill. This place was special to them both and so it made sense to grab some shots there before getting to the barn.

Godwick Great Barn

I arrived and as Martin and the lads sorted some last bits and bobs out I went to meet Lorna. She was getting ready in the main house and wow that place is something else! A gorgeous property with heaps of rooms and a pool too. You know for them hot summer wedding days! Lorna had her make up done by the awesome Kirstie Barton and her hair was sorted by her pal Laura Hughes who is a hell of a hair stylist! With everyone sorted I headed to gather the girls at the bottom of the stairs so they could all get to see their pal looking 100 on her wedding day!

Lorna’s dad waited patiently in the front room for his daughter to come and say ‘hey’ before heading to get married. Ahhhh, I love a wedding ya know! We set off in proper Norfolk Country style. The wedding party and I hopped into a tractor-trailer, driven my Lorna’s brother. While Lorna hitched a lift on the back of her dad’s stunner of a motorcycle. What an Entrance!

Beautiful Godwick Wedding

The weather was perfect for the outdoor ceremony and Lorna and Martin and fam had done an ace job making Godwick look incredible. I waited in the gardens, next to a gorgeous geometric floral stand with Martin and his best man. The sun shone, Lorna and her dad walked the aisle and after a warm and joyful ceremony, Lorna and Martin were married. Confetti was thrown, cool beers were sunk and everyone enjoyed a stunner of a day.

Everyone went inside when it was time for some food. There were some ace speeches and then it was Tractor time once again. We all jumped onto the back of the tractor and went speeding off up into the sunset filled fields. Champers in hand, Lorna and Martin enjoyed some chilled time together. We took some pictures, we drank some bubbles and enjoyed a stunning sunset before heading back to the barn to party!

Dancing, Dancing and more Dancing!

I love a good party and this one did not disappoint! The band kicked in, and Lorna’s brother set the pace. If you know farmers then you’ll know what I mean. This guy had the moves for sure! Everybody followed suit and so with props, booze and happiness this night was FIRE!

Thanks for having me you gorgeous things!! Xx

Millie and Doug - Southwood Hall Wedding

Millie and Doug - Southwood Hall Wedding

Whooooooooooo, WINNERS!

Millie and Doug won a competition ages ago to get their wedding photography for free. We had an amazing pre-wedding shoot on the gorgeous North Norfolk Coast. You can check this out HERE. 

Anyway, on to the wedding. Millie and Doug planned to get married at Lingwood church with the party afterwards being held at the fantastic Southwood Hall. The day started with Millie getting ready at Southwood. Joining her, the very talented Kirstie Barton and Deb Dominic killing it on Make-up and Hair! The gorgeous florals put together by Kelly from Fig Flowers. After a super fun morning and some wasp killing, we made our way to the church for the ceremony! The ceremony was beautiful, it’s always really nice to see such good people come together to celebrate their love for each other.

Back to the Party!

Ceremony done and with the rain coming down, we got a confetti line made up. Millie and Doug ran down the church path, brollys in hand and smiles on their faces! Nothing like a quick downpour to get people in the mood for a beer! So back to Southwood we went. Arriving under heavy rain, everyone made their way inside for drinks. The ever-brilliant Bill Downs played and sang as guests mingled and chatted. Millie and Doug arrived and the food was served. Speeches followed and Doug’s pals made him pay with a somewhat questionable choice of toast drink. Imagine all the spirits, add Germolene and you’ve got it! Rank, funny but rank!

After a good laugh and some delish food the clouds parted and Millie, Doug and I went into a field to see some cows. Yep cows, you’ll see. The kids (and adults) enjoyed a quick game of footy, a hog was roasted and everyone got in the party spirit when the band got going! An awesome day full of laughs! Thanks you two!! Xx

Joe and Sharna - Awesome Norwich Wedding

Joe and Sharna - Flippin' brilliant Norwich Wedding

I first met Joe and Sharna at James and Gabi’s wedding last year. An ace day with ace people. I ended up shooting some bridal party stuff in a field and out of the blue Joe decided to throw himself into the wheat/barley in full suit. So, when they enquired I knew their wedding was going to be something amazing!

Awesome Norwich Wedding

Day one started with Sharna getting ready at home with her family and friends and the very talented Flamingo Amy doing her thing! As the sun beamed down outside a beautiful blue Chevy arrived to take Sharna to the Castle. Yep, that’s right a Castle.

Ceremony done, confetti thrown and off we went but not before ice cream. I mean, it’s 47 degrees (i am ginger so 15 extra degrees is about right) and it’s a wedding so why not. Joe, Sharna and I then climbed into the Chevy and made our way to the Playhouse bar for a pint or two before a wander through the city! Norwich is one of the best places to just wander, so much history and beauty in one place.

After some waffles at the waffle house (obvs), day one was almost done. Well, it was done for most of the wedding party but for me Joe and Sharna there was more fun at the beach to be had. After all the shooting was done we stopped at the end of the pier with Sharna’s parents for a beer and a chat. Days like this remind me of just how lucky I am to do this for a living.

Day one ended as summer rains began. I said my goodbye’s and after a long but wonderful day I dropped my gear on the shore and strolled into the calm sea at 9 pm for a swim. Nothing like late summer swims in the rain. A beautiful way to end the day.

Day two

Norwich Arts centre hosted. Grosvenor’s chippy did the food. There were some ace speeches, even better photos! Josh (not me) did the tunes and there was some definite nakedness! Everyone got pissed and it was an incredible night! Oh and I ended up waiting for a taxi at 2 am with the brother of the following week’s bride. MADNESS!

This wedding was something else. Another ace day with ace people. Thanks Joe and Sharna you legends! Xx

Becky and Tommy - Waxham Barn Wedding

Becky and Tommy - Waxham Barn Wedding

Hey all! Before we get into this amazing Waxham Barn wedding let me take you back to Becky and Tommy’s ‘pub crawl’ pre-wedding shoot. Soak it in and then get back here for this incredible day!

The day started with me arriving at a cottage on the Norfolk coast to meet Becky and her girls! They were in fine spirit and enjoying a super chilled morning of make-up, ribbons, flowers and booze! (The flowers, by the incredible Rambling Rose Florist.) Standard bridal prep stuff ya know! The morning flew and before I knew it Becky’s surprise transport turned up in the shape of a VW Camper. Nice little touch indeed!

Waxham Barn Wedding

Becky arrived with her bridal party and a stunningly colourful ceremony began. Multi-coloured ribbons hanged from beams and lanterns, balloons and bunting kept everyone’s eyes leaping around the room. Becky and Tommy were married and a rapturous applause rang around the room.

Walking out into the baking sunshine everyone enjoyed cool beers and tequilas, we did a couple of group shots, Becky threw her flowers to a huge crowd and I nearly fell off some scaffolding! WINNING! A huge Mexican feast, more Tequilas and some mega speeches followed and then the bridal party and I went to the beach!

Skinny dipping?

Yep, you read that correctly. On the way to the beach, I told a story about how I always end up in the sea when I am at Sea Palling. This got the topic of a potential swim up. Other people within the party were known for their willingness for nakedness (Bobby) and with that, half of the bridal party ended up in the sea. Naked, in the sea, in the beautifully warm summer sun.

Yours truly remained professional with his boxers half on and well, an epic little half hour of prosecco fueled madness was enjoyed.

A wonderfully helpful family of campers provided some fresh towels for people. Everyone got dressed, thanks were given and so we all headed back to PARTY!! The Collective kicked in and we all partied into the night. Nothing better than a good old knees up on the Norfolk Coast with good pals eh! Take a good look at these and then share with your pals.

Bella and Dexter - Tudor Barns Belstead

Bella and Dexter - Tudor Barns Belstead

Oooooh WOOOOOWEEEEE!! This stunner of a Suffolk wedding will knock your socks off! Bella and Dexter won my last Free Wedding giveaway and I couldn’t have been happier! What a day to shoot! They even booked an Engagement shoot in the Lakes which you can see here.

On with the wedding though and these two were to be wed at the gorgeous Tudor Barn in Belstead. The day would turn out to be the hottest of the year at a scorching 34 degrees C. Now as many of you know, yours truly is a little bit ginger and as such, I don’t do well in the sun. Precisely why I was incredibly happy to hear that shorts were OK for the day. I go this news from a pal and all-round video genius Tom Brown of Browns Films. If you want a video of your wedding day get over to his site and book that dude. Talking of pals, James Powell, ace photographer, shit badminton player was shooting alongside me too!

On with the day…IT WAS HOT!!!!

Beautiful Suffolk Wedding

Tom and I met with Bella and her bridesmaids and family at a beautiful farmhouse in the heart of Suffolk called Lodge farm. Rolling hills, pine woods and an awesome house to get ready in. Hair and Make by the super talented Elegant hair and beauty  Also, shout out to Bertie Green Florist for some incredible blooms!!

Meanwhile, Powell was with Dexter and the boys. Knowing James and hearing from Dexter, they had a blast for sure.

With everyone at the venue and the sun beaming down Bella arrived with her dad. Her, her Dad and the girls walked outside and a beautiful ceremony was held by Bella’s cousin Martin. Huge shout out to Valentina, an acoustic due with super guitar playing and one exquisite voice!!

After the ceremony, a huge confetti line was made and with cheers from either side, Bella and Dexter walked through a rainstorm of petals.  After some drinks and nibbles and while the guests chatted, Tom, James and I went to see what was about. We (they) found a huge field with rolling hills and a perfect place to shoot some fun bridals when the sun set.

Speeches were heartfelt and full of laughter. Beers were cold and garden games were in full flow. Be warned, when you have two photographers and a video guy who all get on the garden games will be played. See for yourselves below. Anyway, bridal party fun was had and dancing was mega, props to The balloon animals for kicking this party into high gear! This, an absolutely amazing (HOT) day was one I won’t forget. Cheers you two! x


P.s James and Tom begin their Modelling careers next year! Makes sure you stroll to the end for that sexy shizzle!

Verity and James - Godwick Great Barn

Verity and James - Godwick Great Barn

‘You absolute legend mate!’

‘F**king amazing photos’

This, THIS is what I am talking about!!

Verity and James and their incredible families know whats up when it comes to a wedding! I mean really!

Where to start? These two legends got in touch back in the day, told me about their plans and we hit it off on the Skype call straight away. The next time we met was on a boat. Specifically the Albatros in Wells. We had a couple of pints, talked weddings and laughed heaps in the sunshine!

Godwick Wedding

Fast forward to the wedding day. I arrived at Godwick with the sun melting my face and the joys of the day lay ahead. Verity and James got ready, with their bridal party and family together in the stunning house at Godwick. So many laughs and lovely little moments. I experienced the oddest first meeting EVER! Those who know, know!! Cheers James!

Once everyone was ready Verity headed down to see James and had the sweetest first look. Everyone joined in afterwards and we strolled out to the front garden for some family photos before heading to the Barn for the ceremony.

The family took the tractor, which came back for Verity. I jumped in a passing guests van and James gave his best man a seaty to the venue on an awesome little bike!

The sun beamed for the ceremony and Verity and James enjoyed one of the nicest ceremonies I have seen. Gorgeous light, a warm breeze and a garden full of happy smiling guests! Confetti was thrown, everyone got themselves a drink and good vibes followed.

We headed out in my golf for a little jaunt to the fields and the entrance to Godwick. They were full of barley/wheat, I can’t remember which. Anyway, James took the lead in the field and made sure the laughter didn’t stop. 15 minutes away from the noise is always good for the soul!

DIY like you’ve never seen

Now, to say the Verity and James are ‘stylish’ would be something of an understatement. They are, in fact, cool AF and holy shit snacks would you take a look at the styling in the venue! All of which was handmade by either Verity, James or some other wonderful human at this wedding! Verity’s sister did the incredible flowers too!! I mean come on! All the style skills!

Party Time

So the drinks flowed, including some home-brewed beer, (which was super tasty) and the entire bridal party ended up messing about in fields and playing dinosaurs! Yep, Dinosaurs. I don’t know why but you’ll see. Anyway, the sun set, the music started and the party took hold of everybody! One hell of a day and night!
