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.

Back to Voewood for Paula & Mike’s pre-wedding shoot, it was a drizzling afternoon so we didn’t get much chance to make use of the gardens but with an interior like that it really doesn’t matter too much!
Please feel free to leave some comments. For the full gallery of images click here. (Try the slideshow for best effect).
So to Park Farm for the wedding of Katherine and Paul.
Actually the day started at Katherine and Paul’s home for the preparation shots, Louise from u-treatments was there to take care of the make up and she did a superb job, here she is in action with Katherine below.
While downstairs Louisa and Sarah were trying a completely different beauty treatment of ice cold tea-bags!
Really beautiful flowers by Libby Ferris Flowers, the muted colours and design of the flowers created quite a retro look, I can’t recommend Libby highly enough – not only does she do outstanding wedding flowers but she also has great words of advice for the bride!
Paul and his best Man Lee, both being RAF personnel, wore their uniforms which made for some great shots.
Below Paul enjoys a post ceremony cigar…
The image below has been worked quite heavily in post-production to acheive this look, in moderation I think it can be quite effective. It’s art dahhhling!

Great wedding weather on Saturday – very slight breeze, pleasant temperature, broken sunshine in the day leading to a lovely sunny evening – good for photos, good for brides & grooms and good for guests!
I started the day at Lisa & Dom’s house for some preparation shots of the ladies getting ready, shot below sees Lisa handing the girls their bouquets – great flowers from Libby Ferris Flowers.
Bridesmaid Harriet (below), I was all ready to impress her with my knowledge of the Disney Princesses when she told me she had grown out of them so I had a masterclass on ‘High School Musical’. I think Harriet has got to be one of the most photogenic bridesmaids I’ve ever photographed.
Below, Lisa arrives at Weston Park and has a quick chat with the Registrar prior to heading up to the wedding ceremony.
Dominic (right) and his brother and bestman Alex nervously await the arrival of Lisa.
Antonio and Laura show us how to blow raspberries Italian style!
Alex’s bestman’s speech went down really well, along with a little sprinkling of ritual humilation for Dom!
Harriet really got stuck into the chocolate fountain.

Just a quick posting today as I’m halfway out the door to the next wedding (photographing three this weekend), below are a sample of the shots from Amber and Peter’s wedding yesterday – they were married at Voewood and went onto a reception at the Michelin starred Morston Hall, now that’s style!

It was pretty much non-stop drizzle yesterday for Leigh-Ellen and David’s pre-wedding shoot in Blakeney. We found some shelter in the historic guildhall initially and then headed to the White Horse Inn for some more shots before braving the dampness and heading down to the quayside.
Apologies for the slightly surreal look to your shot below David – I’m playing about with a new technique, for the occassional shot I think it’s quite effective, gives a slight graphical look to the image, although it can make people look a bit plastic too! But I like it so there.

Went off to Taverham Hall School yesterday to get some shots of the opening of the Flower Extravaganza there in aid of the care charity – Break. Some stunning arrangements. The show runs from 29-31 May 10-5 (4pm Sat).

Not far to travel yesterday for Margaret and Trevor’s wedding blessing at Glandford Church with a reception at the stunning Cley Mill.
The shot below shows the vicar awaiting Margaret’s arrival. Here’s an interesting fact for you – the gown he is wearing was worn by the Dean of St. Paul’s cathedral while he conducted the wedding of Prince Charles and Diana. Bet you could get a few quid on ebay for that!
Margaret’s dog Holly (below) didn’t seem very interested in the service.
Margaret, Trevor and Cley Mill reflected in the headlamp chrome of their wedding car.
They had a wedding cake made in perfect replica of the Mill – complete with a mini Margaret, Trevor and Holly on the balcony!
Trevor’s sons Joe and James took me up to the very top most balcony of the Mill, amazing views of Cley village and the marshes from up there, below shot is Joe, the one below that is James.
Below, Joe takes in some wise words.
Loads of very steep ladders and steps to get into the various rooms of the Mill, it must be great to stay there – the lads had the top room which required negotiation of some vertical ladders to get into, not one to attempt after too many cans of shandy!
Although you can hardly make them out in the shot below, Trevor and Margaret are actually in this shot – they are the two darker pixels on the right hand side of the balcony.

A rather soggy day today for the Norfolk Mini Owners Club meet at Fakenham Racecourse, it was a real shame as the guys had got their cars all polished up beautifully. I did some mock-up magazine cover prints along a similar line to the golf ones mentioned in a previous post.
Many thanks to Terry, my glamorous assistant today, for some top notch umbrella and flash holding!

Had an amazing pre-wedding shoot with Nathalie and Oliver at Wells beach on Sunday. They said they wanted to do some fun shots and we came up with some great shots. This is truly a testament to you getting as much out of a shoot as you are prepared to put in – Ollie & Nathalie were up for any ideas and really seemed to enjoy themselves, thanks to you both, it was fun!
