Intimate Norwich Wedding - Emma and Rueben

Intimate Norwich Wedding - Emma and Rueben

These nights are closing in now and Autumn is here! Winter is not far away and I’m taking it back to last year with this stunning little ‘Micro-wedding’

Micro wedding, intimate wedding, small wedding, whatever you want to call them, they are here! With large gatherings on the back burner, for now, these gorgeous little celebrations of love are pretty special. Times as they are, they are a smashing option if you wanna get married!

Emma and Reuben were ahead of the curve ya know, Micro-ing it up before it was mainstream! With so fewer things to worry about every little detail was so personal and magical. Each gift had meaning and each word said was with amplified emotion. With their close family alongside them, they braved the cold, fresh December air and enjoyed a beautiful city centre ‘Micro’ wedding. I’m not sure how I feel on the word Micro, every time I say it I can hear someone shout WAVE afterwards so yeah. Anyways, enjoy the frames! Xx

Norfolk Adventure Session - Paula and Oliver

Adventure Session - Paula and Oliver

Let’s have a catch-up before I show off this incredible Norfolk Adventure Session! You’ll have probably seen me on Insta and bits and bobs on Facebook but I haven’t blogged in a while. In all honesty, COVID has put the brakes on my usual summer activities. This is including most of my work, and it’s been difficult to get into a good headspace to then get on here to write. I mean, I struggle to write anything coherent at the best of times so throw in a pandemic and it all goes to shit.

Anywaaaaaaay, here I am and honestly, I am happy to be here writing. As I sit, sipping coffee with the sun pouring in I am reminded of all the fun I have had this summer despite the lack of weddings. One main reason for this is my Adventure Sessions. I’ve been doing loads of them and I am stoked to see how so many of you are enjoying them. You lot and your support of my work keep me going with this career that I love and have missed this year. Smaller weddings are now going ahead and with a few in the pipeline, I cannot wait to share them with you. For now, I want to take you back to this scorching session with Paula and Oliver.

Norfolk Adventure Session

They booked an Adventure Session with me and my Film-making pal Tom Brown of Browns Films. We headed up to Overstrand, a stunning beach not far from Cromer. With the tide coming in, a gentle (like almost no) swell and sun beaming through a high haze we were in for a treat. I could try and write some clever stuff here but as mentioned I suck at it so I’ll leave you with the photos. Take a scroll through this gorgeous shoot and if you want to have your very own Adventure Session just get in touch!

Chaucer Barn Wedding

Chaucer Barn Wedding

Well, here’s a little throwback. Back to a time when weddings were a thing and I was allowed out of the house and into the sunshine. I had been looking forward to this wedding for a while. Ever since Jo, QUEEN of planning at One Curious Dream got me on board I had been eager to get shooting, if you want a wedding planning this one is the person you need. This wedding was going to be a super chilled Chaucer Barn Wedding with big family vibes. Nowt better really is there?!

Chaucer Barn is up near the North Norfolk Coast and as I woke I saw the sun shining and knew this would be a belter. I headed out a little early to go and grab a coffee from Grey Seal (amazing coffee shop) in Sheringham before heading to the wedding. I arrived in the car and wandered to the seafront to get a breath of that good sea air. Leaning over the wall I saw the most beautiful colour of water. I knew I wouldn’t be able to resist a dip so I went back to the car, popped on some shorts (always have shorts in the car in case of swimming opportunities) and jumped into the sea.  Scroll right to the bottom to see. There is no better way to start your day than with a dip in the sea followed by good coffee and a wedding! Life affirming goodness!

Chaucer Barn

I arrived at Chaucer barn head high and feeling good. Rachel and David had planned a day with family being key and tradition kept to a minimum so throughout morning prep everyone wandered around freely chatting and laughing in the sunshine. Perfect right?! There was time for family to catch up, time for kids (and adults) to play table tennis, football and time for joy. These kind of things are my favourite. Everyone getting ready together gives such a warm feel to the day. Feels like love. It’s mega!

After a quick lunch people made their way to a clearing where Rachel and David were to get married. David wandered along to and Rachel followed after that. It was a super cute ceremony with a string quartet and the wind gently blowing through the trees above. Afterwards, everybody strolled back together to enjoy the sunshine it Chaucer Barn’s unbelievable grounds. There was a huge Tipi and some incredible inside it provided by my dudes Carway-Roe. Connor and Phoebe and their team knock out some of the best food around, without a doubt!

Listen you lot, there’s not much point in me trying to explain the rest. I’m rubbish with words. All you really need to know is that days like this are magic. As I sit here in lockdown I am forever grateful for days like this. Sit back and enjoy and if you want to book you wedding photography just fill in the contact form and lets get your magic day sorted yeah?!

Throwing out huge bear hugs, dancing and singing and giving it 100% with a new sense of what really matters. I think we’re in need of a little reminder of what we can all look forward to is in order! Take care of each other, stay safe and I’ll see you all on the other side!

Henham Park Weddings

Tori and Gryph - Henham Park Wedding

Tori and Gryph - Henham Park Wedding

What a couple of legends these two are. Tori and Gryph, G&T, whatever you call ’em they remain two of the coolest people I’ve ever met. We got together and chatted plans and after about 5 mins I was absolutely sold on all their ideas! This was gonna be amazing!

Constable Country Adventures

G&T wanted an Adventure shoot and we arranged a really cool afternoon of stuff. First we hired a rowing boat in the middle of beautiful Constable country. This was a bit of a rush job as we arrived a little close to closing time. Anyway up the river we went and had a proper laugh, like Kenneth Grahame said: “There’s nothing, absolutely nothing half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.” Our short trip came to an end and we wandered along the river bank for a while. Heaps of laughing, all the smiles, and even some chat about a swim. The weather wasn’t particularly great but not cold and so, being in Constable country and always wanting a swim at the famous Hay Wain we all headed that way. Arriving, it looked gorgeous and so I immediately took off my trousers and got in. G&T followed and we had a swim swam about. Honestly, there’s nothing better! We got dressed and headed for some food! This is why Adventure sessions are awesome. Not just having your photo taken for an hour looking daft in a field. An actual mini adventure with organic happenings and heaps of joy.

Gorgeous Henham Park Wedding

These intoxicating, happy vibes carried on as soon as I arrived at Henham Barns on the wedding day. Gryph and his groomsmen, were in the barn adding some finishing touches to a couple of bits and bobs interlacing this DIY sesh with games of Frisbee in the rain. Tori and her girls were in the house sipping champs and getting ready. I always like it when my couples get ready pretty close together. Tori upstairs and Gryph downstairs with everyone just enjoying the morning in between. There’s no better way to start your wedding. I got a nice surprise when I saw that the knife to cut the cake was made by Gryph’s brother. Way back when, I used to be a chef and I always had the best knives. These stunning creations were something special. I will be ordering one soon.

Super Stylish Suffolk Wedding

The ceremony was well nice! Sublime light pouring in one side of this room, casting subtle illumination on Tori as she walked up the aisle following on from Gryph who walked up with his mum. A nice little touch and something I hope to see more of in 2020. The ceremony over it was outside for signature cocktails and some time for cuddles with loved ones and laughter with pals. There was some confetti, decent tunes and then time for food. In perfect G&T style these two danced their way into a gorgeous Italian style feast on long tables exquisitely styled by Tori and her team! They ate then they spoke. Speeches were beautiful, moving the room to a rapturous applause and finishing just in time to catch the last of the sun and the cooling twilight. G&T jumped into a little Italian auto and we raced off into the countryside taking in the sunset and the moon rise before heading back to PARTY! There may have been lots of party’s on that night but there was only one worth bothering with and it was this one! A standout pair of incredible humans leading their guests into a night of revelry and joyful celebration. Real love this guys! Take it in. ENJOY!

Twenty Nineteen

Twenty Nineteen

Holy smokes that was something eh? 2019 has just flown by and here I am again, trying to come up with the words to sum it all up. 27 Weddings, heaps of Adventures, the best family shoots. Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridge, Essex, Cornwall, Devon, Cheshire. The seaside, the city, the BIG city and more. It’s been crackers! I dunno let’s start with the family then we’ll get onto weddings.

Twenty Nineteen revisited

So, my favourite little human is well in the swing of things at nursery. He absolutely loves it there. Making friends, playing heaps of games and above all learning loads. I am, as always incredibly proud of him and hope he knows just how loved he is! Hoops is mischief personified and I’m so glad of it. My beautiful wife Stephanie has made such awesome leaps in her career. Taking on the world and getting all the props she deserves. She is the  reason all of this is possible and basically a fucking hero. Soppy as it is these two dafties are my ‘get up and go’ and the reason I do anything at all so I had to give them a little shout out!  Another year spent with my faves and wow am I grateful.

On the shitter side of things my family lost an absolute star this year, a real good dude.  A couragous, kind, powerhouse of life who is missed heaps. He used to dance a lot and at every wedding, I am reminded of his joyous spirit when Uptown Funk comes on as it inevitably does. Every wedding I remember him and I realise how precious our relationships are. This kinda leads me onto the weddings. These incredible events that mark such a key moment in our lives, well, they are something special. Something to be cherished. (Cliché I know sorry)

Wedding Photography with heart

When I shoot I dont shoot with too much in mind other than to capture whats going on in the best light with emotion packed into the frame. Things happen organically and I shoot them, only in hindsight do I see the true significance of my subjects relationships. The glances, the smiles, the laughter, the embraces, even the dancing, every little frame tells a story of human connection. It’s pretty cool really, important too. People come and people go and I’ve begun to realise the little box I carry can stop time, keeping moments and memories very much ‘here’.

Anyway I think what I’m getting at is that after this busy, busy year full of life, laughter, and loss I still think photos are magical and I think we all need to go out there and do stuff with heart. Live hard and enjoy the things you love in everyday life and especially at you wedding. When this awesome day rolls around soak it up and enjoy every crazy, wonderful second. Have that drink, eat all the food, jump in the pool, sing those songs and DANCE. I’m heading into 2020 with a full heart and a reinstated love of the moment. No more getting hung up on the technical, this year and beyond ima search for the reason to stop time.

Huge Thanks to you all!

Just before you scroll, I want to say an enormous THANK YOU to all my Brides and Grooms this year. You have been amazing and I haven’t just got the best clients ever, I have made some proper life long friends too. How lucky I am! SUPPLIERS you’ve been great again. Always on form and always a pleasure to work alongside. STEPH AND HOOPS you’re my driving force, Loves! xx

Now, onto the photos!! Take a look at this little video round up and if you want to see more super duper stuff, keep on scrolling! If you’re after photography with lots of heart and soul then give us a shout. We’ll have a blast just ask these lot!
