I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Vinny & Clare at the weekend, I’ve know them both for the best part of 9 years so it was great to be able to photograph their big day.
They chose the wonderful Broad House Hotel in Wroxham for their day – a superb venue, great location and amazing food.
Below we see Vinny and the lads.
Moments before Clare heads downstairs to get married…
A last hug for Dad before Clare becomes Mrs Hughes…
The ceremony is over, congratulations to the new Mr & Mrs Hughes, Vinny celebrates!
Clare’s Mum (below) was great fun, always laughing, even did a little dance for the camera at one point!
Best Man Matt (below) during the speeches, I believe at this point he was on the receiving end of one of Vinny’s tales.
Clare wells up during an emotional moment of Vinny’s speech.
One of the courses of their seven course meal was chocolate shots – they smelled great.

Had a fun shoot yesterday evening in Sheringham Park with Michelle and Lee and their children Kyle & Leah.
I’m really pleased with some of the shots, I didn’t realise we were going to find a load of bluebells to photograph in too!

Off to Cromer for some shots on the pier & beach with Jess & Jon. It was actually quite breezy down there but we found a few sheltered spots and got a nice selection of shots….

So to Blakeney on another scorching day for Ashley and Claire’s pre-wedding shoot. We met at the White Horse and did the first few shots in the pub, many thanks to the welcoming staff!
Now here’s a shot I haven’t done for a while (below), it’s not as rude as it looks but when Claire asked if I could get a shot of their engagement rings I couldn’t resist!
The below shot is intentionally artificial looking, I used some off-camera flash on this sunny day to create the look, it’s different.
Thank you to Ashley and Claire for the shoot today, it was fun to work with you both and great to see the transition from being a little uncomfortable to coming up with ideas for shots and really relaxing in front of the camera. This is exactly what the pre-wedding shoots are about and days like this make it all worthwhile!

Last night was the Sheringham Carnival Queen selection event at the Crown Inn, there were twelve entrants although the two below were more ‘Queens’ than Queens! Hats off to you lads you brought a smile to everyone’s faces, maybe next year we should have an ‘alternative Carnival Queen’ competition too!
This evening I met with the freshly elected Carnival Queen Rosa and her two attendants Olivia and Flick and we took some shots for the local press below are the ones I’ll be submitting (hope I picked the right ones ladies!)
I got to lounge about in the sun once again for the North Norfolk Railway Driver Experience day, capturing the day on film (actually that should be ‘capturing the day on memory card’ but it just doesn’t have the same ring about it).
Below are a few of my favourite shots of the day, the link to the full gallery is at the bottom of this post…
The shot below is the Driver’s Eye View while on the footplate of the J15 (yep, I’m even starting to learn the names of the trains and I can now recognise the shrill whistle of the J15 while sitting in my garden. I haven’t quite got a notebook and anorak for recording the train numbers but maybe this time next year…)
The shot below might look like just a shot of the 18th tee at Sheringham golf course but look more closely and you can see the shadow of the train and the steam billowing out too.
This is Alan, an encyclopedia of information about the trains and some quite rude poems about guards too! Alan was driving the trains around Norfolk when the steam train was the primary source of public transport for the region, a real old Norfolk booty!
Some well-used oil cans, great texture and shape.
The Oilseed Rape is in full flower at the moment, a great contrast with the deep blue skies.
..and finally, the below shot is the expression you get if you shout ‘Roger!’ just as he’s off to do some track maintenance with his tiny spanner.

It was back to Wells beach again on Saturday for a portrait shoot of Hannah and family, they had all travelled to North Norfolk for a surprise birthday celebration for Robert’s 60th. We started off with a couple of shots on the bank and tried to co-ordinate everyone jumping in the air at the same time – easier said than done!
It was a really fun shoot, everyone seemed to be having a great time and were obviously really enjoying being together.
I couldn’t resist tinkering with the below shot – at one point I was doing a shot of Euan (hope I’ve got the spelling right) and everyone else started peering over the groyne, Robert found a gap to look through so I took this shot and it instantly reminded me of the film poster below!
