A cracking evening at Holkham beach yesterday with Max and Joce for their pre-wedding shoot. Having been grey all day it was a real bonus to get such a warm, still evening on the beach as there’s not much cover when it’s windy!

It was a lovely evening down on Sheringham cliffs and beach yesterday evening for a North Norfolk lifestyle portrait shoot with Daniella and her mum Ali. The shoot was booked by Daniella as a birthday present for her mum, great idea!
We had good light to work with and got some great shots…

Jess and Jon had a drizzly sort of a day for their wedding at Stower Grange but everyone was in high spirits including some very lively page boys!
Below Jon has his buttonhole attached.
There was some discussion on the day which way up the buttonholes should be worn, I’ve since done some research online and found that the custom of wearing them upside down was an Edwardian fashion, done because they believed it would keep the flowers alive longer. I guess it’s all down to personal choice, as long as men wear them on their left and ladies wear them on the right then it doesn’t really matter which way up the flowers are worn although it does look a bit odd to me to see them upside down!
It was an emotional service.

Superb hair and make-up by Louise Young – Louise normally does hair and make-up for film, television and fashion, you name them, Louise has done their make-up, but she will still occassionally do bridal beauty – if you want something really special for your wedding day you really should contact Louise.

Had a fun shoot with the Thomas family on Wells beach on Tuesday evening, the weather was perfect and the boys Louie and Harvey were bundles of energy so lots of jumping around and plenty of sand flying!
We’ll start of below with a ‘formal’ family shot – as formal as you can have on a sandy beach with bare feet!
Louie was fearless when it came to dune jumping (…and on the rope swing and tree climbing and pretty much everything, in fact Louie was just fearless!)
Harvey is laughing here because he got to sit behind his little brother and pinch him, which brought a squeal every time he did it.
Boys will be boys…and I make sure I encourage it!
This was exactly 0.325 seconds before myself and both cameras were completely covered in sand. All part of the hazards of photographing on a sandy beach I guess!

Just received some lovely feedback from Rayna & Andrew, whose wedding I photographed a few weeks back…
“We couldn’t be more pleased with the wedding photos!
Having Chris as our photographer was one of the best decisions we could have made for our wedding. Very few people would have taken the time or care that Chris has taken for a pre-wedding shoot to ensure that we were comfortable with him behind the camera. I normally hate having my photograph taken but Chris has this infectious love of photography, you just can’t help smiling. It makes a world of difference on the wedding day. It felt like a close friend was taking our picture rather than someone we’d just met.
Andy and I would definitely love to have Chris photograph us again someday. :)”
I arranged a pre-wedding shoot with Catherine and Sam at Blickling Hall for yesterday (Monday), if you are planning on having a look round Blickling one Monday – don’t bother, they are closed on Mondays.
Nevertheless we went ahead with the shoot in the grounds around the hall and got some varied and different shots – I’ve never used a cattle water trough as a prop in a shoot before but I actually really like the shots with the reflections in the cow saliva!

I was honoured to be asked by the good folk at the Broad House Hotel to go along yesterday and photograph the visit by HRH Princess Anne. The Princess had been visiting Great Yarmouth, arriving in the Queen’s helicopter for lunch before heading off to Wroxham Yacht club.
We had glorious sunshine for the visit, the hotel and grounds looked spectacular.
Princess Anne arrives.
The Princess meets Philip and Caroline (owners of the Broad House Hotel).
Signing the guest book.
The hotel reflected in what has to be the most polished helicopter in Britain.
Visit over, the Princess departs.

Gail contacted me a few weeks ago to ask if I would come over to the Blakeney Hotel to photograph the family who were getting together for her mother-in-law’s 60th birthday. Unfortunately it was still raining so we had to conduct pretty much the whole shoot indoors but we got some good portraits of everyone, below is the birthday girl….

The first of two 60th family birthday get togethers today – unfortunately it was raining non-stop today so we had to conduct the shoot indoors – luckily the family were staying at a huge farmhouse in Roughton (Jonas Farm) so we had plenty of room to photograph in. The nature of shooting indoors meant the shots are all fairly formal which is a shame as we were hoping to have the shoot at Wells beach but until Canon make a weather-controlling camera we’ll just have to roll with it.
