Simon & Kate’s wedding in North Norfolk last Saturday was one of the most fun weddings I’ve been to in a while, they had thought of so many little details and ideas to keep their guests entertained, from selecting a gentleman from each table to be the designated carver for each table (and having to wear an apron & chef’s hat) to a VW Photobooth and an incredible live band just to name a few.
The day’s coverage started at Kate & Simon’s house in South Creake, as you would expect it was a hive of activity in the house and plenty of laughter too!
Once the girls were ready I dashed down the road to the church to get some shots of the lads and catch the arrival of Kate and her attendants…
…then it was a 40 minute drive to the fabulous Voewood near Holt for their reception and wedding breakfast.
I love photographing at Voewood, owner Simon Finch has amassed such an amazing collection of artwork and curios, you could spend hours walking round the house taking in the atmosphere.
As a manager for a well known supermarket chain it was only fitting that Simon brought his bride into the wedding breakfast on a chariot ‘loaned’ from his employers!
The speeches were fantastic and very emotional, I have to admit they brought a lump to my throat more than once.

Since most of the guests were staying at Voewood for the weekend Simon & Kate asked if I would go back in the morning for an hour to photograph the aftermath! It was really nice to see everyone again and I have to say I was quite impressed by how fresh they looked despite many of them still partying at 2:30am! The Morning After Gallery is here.
