Late last week I was photographing one of my favourite Norfolk wedding venues – Drayton Old Lodge.
Below are some of the shots of the inside of the venue and some of the chef’s creations. While there we were invited to dine at the restaurant and it was an incredible meal, I had a starter of scallops with grilled black pudding and lobster ravioli with a chervil butter dressing which was superb. I won’t list the entire meal but it was really lovely and an indication of just how good their food is for wedding receptions.
Below are some panoramics of the inside showing the recently refurbished bar and restaurant.
The scallops with grilled black pudding and lobster ravioli (this is one that the chef prepared for the shoot), having photographed this I knew exactly what I was ordering once we were finished and sat down to eat!
Sea Bass with clams, brown shrimp and puy lentils…
Here’s Head Chef, Ray Maddox at work, can’t beat a bit of a flambe for a dramatic cooking image!
I was recently asked by the people at the Big C bridal shop to do some edgy shots using some of the second-hand dresses they have for sale in the Norwich shop.
Last week we went into the shop to select the dresses and on Friday we did the first shoot at the great old ruin at Drayton Old Lodge
As you can see we have gone for a grungy, kind of look which worked well with the ruins at Drayton, plenty more dresses, locations and models lined up for the next week or two so come back and see the results.
