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

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?!

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!

Hannah and Shane - Hautbois Hall

Ahhhhh let me tell you, it’s bloody lovely when an old friend gets in touch. Even better when they ask you to shoot their Blessing. Blessing I hear you cry, yeah blessing. So this Hautbois Hall Wedding is actually a beautiful Blessing. Hannah and Shane were married abroad and because Hannah’s grandparents couldn’t travel they arranged a blessing in Hannah’s home village. Sweet right?! The blessing was held in the same church where Hannah’s Parents and Grandparents were married, so all the feels!! This village happens to be where Hannah and I grew up and it was lush to shoot here.

Hautbois Hall Wedding

A real treat to head back to the glorious Hautbois Hall to, it’s been too long! This place is a joy to shoot at and always stuning, just look at the place. Everyone made their way over for an afternoon tea and we had some good fun and laughs around the place. What a wonderful little afternoon! Blessing, Elopement or Wedding?

Lisa and Steve - Norwich City Wedding

Lisa and Steve - Norwich City Wedding

Goodness me, it’s been a while since I’ve typed anything wedding-y. The Wedding season has hit and so my 2019 blog looks a little empty. This is all about to change, stating with this energetic, music filled City Wedding. Lisa and Steve throwing all their glorious persnalities into their day and giving me an awesome party to get into!

Beers at the Barbers

The day started with Steve and his pals getting their mops chopped at Esquire. This belting barbers just out of the city made the perfect place for some early afternoon beers and clean cuts before the ceremony. Great light, ace people and lots of laughs. I finished up here and made my way to Lisa’s. Walking in, things were a lot more chilled, prosecco and happy times flowed. Make-up and hair being done by the fab Kerrie Moralee and Hannah Edmunds. Time was rolling on and a beep from outside meant it was time to go. Lisa made her way downstairs, looking stunning in her beautiful dress from the Frock Spot! We all headed outside and after a good giggle at Tim’s Tackle (inside Joke, though if you need some fishing gear, Tim’ll sort you out)  we were off.

Lisa and Steve had a cute little ceremony at the castle followed by confetti and a loud walk through the city with a Brass Band. We even met superman on the way. Yes, the real one. He lives in Norwich, didn’t you know? Anyway, after this bouncing, trumpeting walk through the City we all landed at the Wine Cellar for some drinks and laughs with friends and family. Nattering and music continued and then it was time to head out into the City for some shots and some photos. Together, we walked down to Pottergate. A quaint little part of the city with pastel houses and cobbled streets and then jumped into the Ten Bells for some TEQUILA! Always a win.

Is it the Eighties?

Not wanting to squash the party spirit, we wandered back to the Wine Cellar and got to food then dancing. Steve and his groomsmen play in an awesome band. This meant they cranked out plenty of 80’s bangers and everybody danced the night away. A truly brilliant day topped off with the best kinda party! Lisa and Steve, thanks for having me, HUGE love to you both!

Take a look-see at their day below and give them some love in the comments. If you or your engaged pals want to check availability then get this contact form filled in and get in touch. Xx

Clover and Tom - A Flint Room Wedding

Clover and Tom - Flint Room Wedding

Yeah! This is the stuff! An epic city wedding with style to spare. The Flint Room playing host to Clover and Tom’s stunning ceremony with an Indian feast to follow. Complete with DJ, dancing and lots of fun!

A windy start, I arrived with Clover and her family and friends at her family home. Tom and the groomsmen had the pleasure of being entertained by James Powell, an awesome photographer who came along for the ride on this one.

We had an ace morning, Clover’s family home is something special indeed. Art adorns the walls, mostly painted by Clovers exceptionally talented mother. Paintings, sculptures, feltwork and more, this place was the perfect setting for Clover to get ready for her wedding. The prosecco flowed, the girls laughed and we had a great morning. I want to give a huge shout out to Natalie at WildFolk Flowers. Her incredible creations arrived mid-morning and absolutely blew me away! If you’re getting married and want flowers, give Natalie a shout.

Flint Room Wedding

Clover and the girls made their way to The Flint Room in the back of an old Land Rover, proper job! They arrived, the sun breaking through the clouds and strolled into the Flint room to wait for their walk up the aisle. The Flint Room, formerly called St John Sepulchre sits at the head of Ber street and as you head inside, Trish and Lesley have turned this old, magnificent church into a stylish, vibrant, city venue for wedding ceremonies. A real gem.

After the ceremony and drinks reception, I took Clover and Tom for a quick drive to the Plantation Gardens for a wander and some chill time before heading back for a feast and dancing. The weather held, we laughed and we made it back, refreshed and ready for a party. A magic March day in the fine city. One of my faves for sure! Huge love and Congrats C+T x

Lake District Elopement

Esther and Rod - Lake District Elopement

Lakes District Elopement - Esther and Rod

Lake District Elopement

Any opportunity to return to the North gives me great joy. Even more so when I get to shoot with wonderful people in exquisite surroundings. Them people, fellow wedding photographer Esther Wild and her wonderful family. Those surroundings, The Lake District. This stunning Elopement of sorts was the perfect getaway into the hills. A really special day for Esther, Rod and their beautiful family.

I say elopement of sorts as Esther and Rod are already married. They were celebrating 10 years married and so, with their children along for the ride they decided to Elope/renew their vows/celebrate their anniversary all in one. Esther brought along some Norfolk Talent in the form of flowers by the incredible Swaffham Florist and a gorgeous cake from the wonderful Amber from Love Wedding Cakes.

I love the Mountains

I arrived and got settled into my home from home. This place always settles me, makes me feel again and after a packed summer, seeing my mountains again made me happy. I love the Mountains. I made myself a brew and then I checked in with Esther and Rod at their Cottage. We made plans for the following day and I returned to my place. The following morning I was met with the usual Lakeland weather and with a smile, I set off to meet Esther and co. We travelled in convoy to the shores of Wastwater, the deepest lake in England and one of my favourite swim spots!

Wastwater, the perfect swim spot.

Today was not a day for swimming though, it was quite cold. Today was a day for love, laughter, family and happiness. We walked, we laughed and skimmed stones. You have to skim stones when you’re at the lake right? The kids played on the shore and Esther and Rod watched on with love in their hearts. It was a beautiful start to the day. We made our way further down the lakeside toward the wonderfully quaint Wasdale Head Inn. Grabbing a quick bite to eat and a pint we chatted all about life and what not, you know, pub talk. What Esther and Rod didn’t know is that me and the kids were making up some vows for them to read by the lake on the way back.

We finished up and slowly strolled back toward the lake. As we were driving back we noticed a stream leading into the Lake and decided to stop. After a minute of umming and arrring, I decided to drag Esther and Rod into the middle of the stream onto some rocks. You know, anything for the shot right?! A short walk later and we were on some headland leading into the lake. The kids gave their Mum and Dad the vows me made and we held a mini-ceremony. Esther had made some petal confetti so the kids chucked that with all their might then it was time for champagne!

Herdy the Herdwick

This is where the day ended, on a real loving high. As Esther and her family made their way off the headland, the cloud had started to swirl around the mountain tops. This made for an awesome black and white shot packed to the rafter with atmosphere. An incredible end to a super cute day. There was even time for a little visit from the local Herdwicks on the way back to the car.

Anyway, this place and this shoot is just too beautiful for my amateurishsh ramblings. I’m gonna let the photos talk now. Let me know what you think in the comments! Xx
