It was time to don the flip flops once again for a lifestyle shoot of the Stephen family at Wells beach, the weather was pretty good, a little windy but I’m not going to start complaining, it certainly beats being locked away in an office!
Below, Jessica checks the net for fishies.
…while Henry fills the watering can, with mud.
…and Martha just about copes with the wind!

Off to Ranworth Hall at the weekend, Jocelyn’s family home for Max & Joce’s wedding – probably the most relaxed wedding I’ve photographed this year. It helped that the church is a stone’s throw from their house so no dashing about in cars for me this time!
Below, the church bathed in sunshine.
Usher Chris on the phone to Max, checking his pocket watch working out just how late Max was going to arrive – and you thought it was the bride that was supposed to be late!
Below, Joce is laced into her dress.
They had booked an excellent Jazz Quartet to play during the reception for more info contact Tom Harris at email@example.com
Max and the lads get mean.
The glasses are charged and ready for the toasts.
Tully and Lance – Max’s bestmen were ‘caught’ round the back of the marquee getting stuck into their hipflasks (presents from Max)!
Below, and finally to the first dance, thank you for allowing me to be part of your day Joce & Max, it was a pleasure to photograph.

Had a great morning for exercise down at the lifeboat this morning, I’ve been waiting for a morning where everything came together to get some good shots for postcards for the RNLI giftshop – basically we needed a morning that was suitably rough, decent weather/sunlight, the tide well in and me being there with my camera – I could pretty much guarantee the last of those but the others rarely coincide.
Got some good shots, all of which I’ll be putting up in their own gallery in the next couple of days but for the time being here’s my favourite three…
The first is the launch –
Below, the RIB punches through a wave…
This last one is my favourite, I’ve worked it a little to bring out the drama of the shot but it just shows what this boat (and it’s crew) is capable of.
The full gallery of Sunday’s exercise is here.
After over twenty years Sheringham Coastguard team have been recognised as an independent unit and have been allocated their own vehicle. To commemorate this occasion we did a team photo outside the Sheringham Fire Station (the Fire Brigade have kindly allowed the coastguard full use of the fire station and it’s facilities).
Congratulations chaps, maybe see you on the next shout!

Back to Holkham for a pre-wedding shoot with Caroline & Adam, unfortunately when we got there is was drizzling and pretty grey so we opted to go & have a look at the primary school in Burnham Market where they are holding their wedding reception. Little did I know that there is an amazing old friary over the road from the school so we did some shots there before heading over the road for some fun shots in the school playground!

Spent a lovely evening in the company of Heidi and Dan on Holkham beach earlier this week for their pre-wedding shoot.
Heidi & Dan actually got engaged at Holkham (on the bench pictured below) and this was the first time they had been back since so it was great to be there to photograph them on such a lovely summer’s evening.

Despite forecasts of heavy showers we had a great day for Michelle & Lee’s wedding in Sheringham, it did rain a bit but only at the times that it didn’t matter which was unusually considerate.
(Below) The old classic, unfortunately by the time Lee got to the altar the tippex had worn off but the thought was there!
(Below) No child was harmed in the making of this image. Kyle anticipates pain during the fitting of his cravat, luckily the pain never arrived but his expression made an interesting shot!
Below, Kyle keeps an eye out for the car.
Below, sadly due to the weather they decided not to use Mark’s AC Cobra and had to put up with the Porsche instead (oh the hardship!), it’s incredible how many people you can fit in a Porsche these days.
Michelle nearly ready.
Sarah dons the headwear.
The hoss’s arrive.

Having lived in Sheringham, North Norfolk all my life (apart from the odd years in Australia, USA & Hull, believe me they were ODD!), I had never been to Brancaster before, so I headed off there yesterday evening to have a look around and maybe get some landscapes.
It wasn’t the most beautiful sky ever but I managed to get a few half decent shots and I’ll definitely be heading back there soon on a better evening. A few more shots added to my North Norfolk landscape photography collection.
The boat shown below looked like it was slowly losing the battle to remain above the surface.
Another drizzly day in this so called British ‘summer’ for Paula & Mike’s wedding, it started off promising but soon turned grey and then the wet stuff followed.
I love this shot below, it’s amazing what you can do with a kitchen work surface!
Below, proof that there was some blue sky at one point during the day!
Paula arrives, umbrellas at the ready!
The service and reception was at the wonderful Congham Hall, it was such a shame that the weather prevented the guests from enjoying the grounds, and more importantly (to me), we couldn’t use any of the grounds for any shots. Still, the food looked incredible, I understand they have a very talented chef, must go for a meal there some time!
Paula’s friend Andrea had a little trouble with her brolly!
Below, Paula wanted to do the bouquet toss, she did a great throw, nearly got it on the roof! Those poor flowers, the lilies kept falling out as it was, it was in about eight different pieces after this shot.
Best man Peter revels in the chance to get his own back in his best man speech….
…which went down well!

Photographed well known local author Moss Taylor and world-renowned bird artist Norman Arlott today for publicity of their new book – Identifying Birds By Colour.
It’s a superb idea – 300 british birds organised by their colour to assist those new to birding in identifying the species.
