As a professional property photographer I’ve been lucky enough to photograph many incredible properties for Wilson Hotels and Wilson Development Ltd over the past few years including Byfords, The Pigs, The Assembly House and The Dialhouse. All are finished to a very high standard and beautifully decorated, furnished & styled.
When Iain called me to ask if I would photograph three new holiday apartments they have developed in Sheringham I knew the interiors were going to be stunning but when I saw them they were better than I even imagined.
Beautifully decorated and styled by the very talented interior designer Annabel Grey, these are three double occupancy dream getaways by the sea. And when I say by the sea, they are literally metres from the sea and all with off street parking which is going to be very handy in the Summer!
When I went to shoot the interiors last week it was a grey, stormy day (good for evenly lit interiors, not so for exteriors) so rather than show a disappointing grey view from the windows I will wait to show the location & exteriors in another blog post in the near future.
The first few shots are of Apartment 1, as with all of my interiors photography I like to capture the feel of the property through a range of wide-angle shots and detail shots of the features which make each place unique, these holiday lets are certainly rich in details…
The next property is Apartment 2, shown below, this is probably my favourite of the three lets developed so far, I love the colour palette used, as with all of these apartments, coastal themed whites & blues with punchy accent colours of bright reds & fire oranges. The model boats, old bottles and jars of shells complete the coastal theme beautifully…
Love this roll top bath in the bedroom in Apartment 2!
Each of the apartments have a living space with kitchen so they really are self-contained, below we move onto Apartment 3, again with cracking views over the North sea and a great balcony for enjoying breakfast in the Summer…
Hopefully the small sample of shots here have whetted your appetite for these stunning holiday apartments, they must surely be some of the best holiday properties in North Norfolk for a romantic getaway for two. I know I’d definitely stay here if I didn’t live just down the road! For more interiors photography of these Beachside holiday lets please follow the link below, once their website is up & running I will post a link here too.

In the follow-up blog post of the exteriors I hope to show some shots of one more holiday let on the site in a truly unique location and possibly the closest to the sea you could actually sleep in Sheringham without getting wet feet. Watch this space!

The photos do not have to be military-based but if you have any old photos you’ve been meaning to get preserved now may be a good time.

Last year I was lucky enough to photograph Becci & David’s gorgeous North Norfolk wedding and this week I was lucky enough to photograph their even more gorgeous baby girl Amelie!
With family lifestyle portrait shoots I like to capture a snapshot in time and with really young families these are best done at the family home, I like to get lots of little details of the nursery and of course the tiny little toes and hands!
This shoot was particularly lovely as all of the proud grandparents came along too so we got a collection of shots of them all with Amelie. Below are some of my favourites from the shoot…
Below, because babies aren’t always the peaceful, sleeping little angels! To be fair Amelie is a remarkably chilled out little thing and cried very little during the shoot but I couldn’t resist putting this shot in…
David & Becci’s dog Bramley is the sweetest pooch ever, she was so gentle around Amelie, almost treating her like she would one of her own puppies. (And please don’t think they let Bramley lick Amelie, in this shot she just had a quick sniff!)
Thank you to David & Becci for letting me photograph their gorgeous little family. For more of my Norfolk family lifestyle portrait photography please visit the gallery here – Norfolk Portrait Photographer
Ah, back to early August for Laura & Ashley (aka Woodsy)’s wedding in Brampton, Norfolk, a lot warmer than it is here right now!
They held their marquee wedding reception in Laura’s parents’ field, overlooking the pasture fields and tributaries of the River Bure. I started the day’s coverage with some shots in the marquee before wandering over to the house to get some shots of the preparations, it was all happening!
…I then nipped down the road to Laura & Woody’s house where Woodsy was just starting to think about getting his suit on!
…and then on to the church where the guests were starting to arrive…
….and then on to the wedding reception, with the sun still shining for them! I put the drone up for a few quick aerial shots of the reception…
Woodsy had hired an artist to paint their wedding reception, he did an excellent job of it (Woodsy emailed me a shot of the finished painting, even had a little photographer in there too!)
I have no idea why Jake was having his teeth brushed but this shot made me laugh…

Back to the wonderful Norfolk Mead Hotel in Coltishall and once again the weather was lovely at this stunning Norfolk wedding venue!
After a few quick prep shots I met up with Nigel and his best man Greg as they welcomed the arriving guests with some time to spare for drinks in the sunshine.
I always enjoy photographing at The Norfolk Mead, the Garden Room where they hold the ceremony has great light from the huge windows and the room next door where they generally hold the wedding breakfast light & airy allowing for some great speech photos and shots of people enjoying each other’s company…
Wow, what a wedding this was!
Set amongst the wheat fields at Banham, Norfolk, Christina and David’s reception was a sumptuous affair yet retained a rustic Norfolk charm with many lovely details, typified by the below shot of a beautiful bucketful of flowers!
After a nose around the marquee to get some initial detail shots I headed off to find the girls getting ready at a house just down the road…
I think the Jimmy Choos deserved a montage of their own!
Preparation shots complete I headed off to the church to photograph the guests arriving and some shots of David & the lads before they took their positions ready for Christina’s arrival…
I have to say that Rev David Hill, conducting Christina & David’s service, was absolutely superb, so friendly and welcoming, his service was full of humour and warmth, a real pleasure to work with. A big thank you from me!
…back to the farm for the reception, luckily the weather held off for us despite it threatening to rain which allowed us to have a wander around the farm for some shots of the happy couple…
As with so many of my weddings this year I was happy to put the drone up (no extra charge!) to get some aerial shots of the reception…
So there it is, Christina and David’s stunning Norfolk wedding, definitely one of the best weddings to photograph in recent years and I hope that the images in this blog post reflect what a great day it was. Thank you again to David & Christina for having me as their Norfolk wedding photographer, it was a real honour and a pleasure.

Back in 2012 I photographed the wedding of Gemma’s twin sister Vicky (to James) so it was really lovely to be asked to photograph Gemma and Jason’s wedding four years later, I must be doing something right!
Someone else who is doing lots right is the talented Rowan Banks of Apricot Weddings – wedding videographer and all round lovely bloke – Rowan has a very unobtrusive style, always a pleasure to work with and my number one recommended videographer for Norfolk weddings.
We started the day’s coverage at Gemma and Jason’s house in Hevingham, a hive of excitement and activity…
It was then just a short drive to the village church where I met Jason and the lads for some shots before Gemma’s arrival….
The ‘official bit’ completed we then all headed off to the beautiful Oxnead Hall for their reception. Oxnead Hall really must be one of Norfolk’s best wedding venues, with the historic hall, stunning grounds and lake, and tastefully renovated areas for the wedding reception drinks and meal. So many beautiful spots for the photography!
I put the drone up for a few quick aerial shots of this stunning Norfolk wedding venue although they were cut short by loud rumbles of thunder and fat raindrops starting to fall!
Just look at those grounds! We have many stunning wedding venues in Norfolk and Oxnead Hall if definitely up there in my top ten.
Awesome cakes by Norfolk’s Select Cakes…
It was a real pleasure to photograph Gemma & Jason’s Norfolk wedding at Oxnead Hall, for the full gallery of their wedding photos please click here – Norfolk Wedding photography at Oxnead Hall.
After spending a lovely hour or so at Blickling Hall with Clare & Joel for their pre-wedding shoot I was looking forward to photographing their wedding, we got on really well and I knew it was going to be a fun, relaxed day.
I started the day in glorious sunshine at Clare’s parents’ home, the gardens were looking immaculate and I have to say I fell in love with their swimming pond, if only I had a bigger garden!
Sadly the sunshine was forecast to give way to rain later so I put the drone up for some aerial shots while I could…
Clare’s beautiful dress was made by the talented, Norfolk-based dressmaker Katrine Mogensen
Preparation shots complete I headed off to Salle Church, an incredible 15th century creation, huge, beautiful and full of incredible features, a real surprise to find in such a small village…
Service complete, confetti thrown and everyone headed back to the Price’s home for the reception….
People often ask me in meetings before their weddings, “So what happens for the photos if it rains on the day?”, the answer is in these photos – we just get on with it! As you can see it’s not the end of the world, it just means your wedding photos will be a little different than if it was sunny but there’s no reason not to get a nice collection of shots to record your day…
Many thanks to Clare & Joel and their families & friends for making me feel so welcome on the day, despite the rain I’m really happy with the shots we got, it’s all about capturing the spirit of the wedding day and telling the story as it happens and I’d like to think Clare & Joel’s wedding photos have achieved that (I just hope my cameras will forgive me for getting them so very wet!).

It was third time lucky for Alison, Dan, Emily & Harriet – we had to reschedule their lifestyle portrait shoot twice over the summer due to poor weather but it was definitely worth waiting for – you couldn’t get shots like these on a wet & windy day!
Emily and Harriet were an absolute joy to photograph (as were Alison & Dan!), so polite and friendly with great smiles and confident in front of the camera. They really made my job very easy!
Below are a handful of the shots taken that afternoon/evening. I had a really lovely email from Alison this morning after she had viewed the images for the first time…
“WOW WOW WOW!!!
I literally feel that words are going to fail me here!! AMAZING!! So utterly thrilled with the photos, I can’t put it into words! They gave me goose bumps. It’s going to be near impossible picking our favs – but I’ll have a good go!
You have captured all my favourite things – I don’t know how you do it when it was all so quick and relaxed!”
Kind words indeed!

This was my first of two weddings this year for me at the lovely Norfolk Mead Hotel in Coltishall, it really is a great venue with superb food, beautiful gardens and located right on the Norfolk Broads.
Once again we had a lovely day for it (those anti-rain dances I do before a wedding seem to be working…)
