I’ve been photographing for the Byfords group for many years now and always know that, whatever the project, it will be visually stunning. The level of detail considered in all of their developments is always first class and the design & thought that goes into the interiors leaves their customers wowed every time.
The latest project at the now legendary ‘The Pigs‘ at Edgefield, Norfolk is the rooftop suite, aptly named ‘Sty in the sky’. The suite covers two floors (well three if you include the jacuzzi which is kind of between two floors!) and includes bedroom & en suite, a day room with sauna, steam room & shower and then the terrace with the jacuzzi.
It really is a luxury experience in the heart of the North Norfolk countryside and one which I was really pleased to photograph since we also got to be some of the very first people to stay in it! I also made a short video showing the facilities, if you are looking for somewhere really special to stay in North Norfolk you won’t go wrong here…
For more examples of my property photography in Norfolk please see my property gallery here. I photograph for many local Estate Agents and for holiday let owners and local hotels & B&Bs with many owners saying they see big boosts in bookings once they get my images on their websites. I have a simple pricing structure which includes supply of the high resolution image files. Aerial photography is included if required and I make sure I get a good range of shots showing the interiors, exteriors & detail shots of any features. I always aim to supply the finished files within 24hrs of the shoot although for first time clients I produce the online preview gallery and then supply the high res files on settlement of the invoice.
It’s been a while since I have managed to post on here but after just finishing processing last weekend’s gorgeous Holkham Hall wedding photos I couldn’t resist sharing some of my favourite shots. Holkham Hall is truly a stunning location, set in the beautiful parkland grounds with their own herd of deer it is a photographer’s dream. The architecture is just breathtaking and the luxurious Marble Hall really must be one of the most impressive wedding ceremony locations in Norfolk.
I started the day’s wedding photography coverage at Row & Richard’s home just inland from the North Norfolk coast where I found Row & the girls getting ready on this beautiful, sunny autumn day.
Anyone for pizza?!
The incredible floral work for their wedding was created by the talented ladies at one of Norfolk’s top florists – Constance Rose. Such a lot of work had gone into these stunning flowers and the many decorations throughout Rowena & Richard’s Holkham Wedding. The colours Row had selected were absolutely beautiful…
With the ladies all set to head off to Holkham I jumped in the car & headed over to get some shots of Richard plus bestman (and brother) Martin and ushers Luke & Joe. Holkham Hall was looking majestic bathed in the autumn sunlight. Definitely my favourite time of year for photography with the low raking light and amazing colours of the leaves.
With everyone in place it was time for our bride’s arrival…
After a quick chat with the lovely registrars it was time to get the show on the road! So lovely to see Charlotte Martin (from Marry In Norfolk) was to be holding the ceremony. I’ve known Charlotte since she worked at Cley Mill, then had the honour of photographing her son’s wedding so it’s always lovely to find Charlotte is taking a ceremony I am to be shooting.
While Mr & Mrs signed the legal documents I got some shots around the hall – we are not allowed the photograph the register itself since it is a legal document so I always use the time to get some shots of the guests and the location.
After walking down the aisle, Richard & Row came back in for a big group shot of everyone on the steps before we released them to the drinks & canapes awaiting in the Lady Elizabeth Wing.
Amazing to think that we could all be outside in the courtyard enjoying the warm weather in mid October, it was genuinely like a Summer’s day!
After making sure Mr & Mrs Chantree had a chance to speak to their guests & enjoy the champagne & canapes we headed out into the grounds for some photos although with the meal looming there wasn’t long so I worked fast to get a selection of shots in the one location. It’s often the way with weddings – I will work with as long as I have available but my one rule is that I will never keep the kitchen waiting for us – if we have to be back at the reception for a certain time for the guests to sit down to eat then I will make sure we are back with time to spare. The chefs work extremely hard to make sure everything is ready for a certain time, the last thing they want is for the guests to be seated late because the photographer got carried away!
Back at the Lady Elizabeth Wing it was time for Richard’s speech before everyone sat down for the wedding breakfast…
The Lady Elizabeth Wing at Holkham Hall is a fantastic asset to this incredible Norfolk wedding venue – spacious, airy & light – perfect for photography!
With the main course finished it was time for Martin’s speech – heartfelt, funny and entertaining, everything a bestman’s speech should be (certainly not as cruel as some I’ve seen this year!)
Cake cut (and sampled by Edie) it was time for the last official duty of the day – the first dance…
A huge thank you to Row & Richard for having me as their wedding photographer, it was a fantastic wedding to photograph and they all made me feel so welcome.
