What an amazing engagement shoot this turned out to be. We had to re-schedule many times due to weather reasons, but the wait paid off. Brett and Fran had a 2 and half hour drive to Wells-next-the-Sea with the forecast saying ‘cloudy’. When we arrived at the car park we were welcomed by the evening sun behind the trees and a gentle breeze. We grabbed a few shots in the woods before heading out to the beach as the sun was setting. This was quite a relief as the bugs in the woods were quite hungry that evening. Due to the lack of wind, the sea water was very still, so I used that to our advantage to grab some stunning shots of the two of them having a little paddle. We can’t wait for their wedding next month at Woburn Abbey.
I had been looking forward to this wedding for quite some time and it didn’t disappoint. This is Oxnead Hall’s first public wedding so this was very exciting for me. Steph and Tom were great to photograph as they looked fantastic and couldn’t stop smiling throughout their amazing wedding day. As you will see in the photographs below, Oxnead Hall is one of the most photogenic venues in Norfolk. We were very fortunate with the weather, as this summer hasn’t been too great so far. I won’t talk about the wedding too much as the photographs tell the story better than I can. A big thank you to Unique Norfolk Venues for organising such a great wedding and also for feeding me on the day.
I have just returned from a lovely trip to Wasdale Head in the The Lake District with friends. While there, two of us climbed Scafell Pike which is the tallest mountain in England standing at 3,209ft. It was a 9 mile walk as we went up the more interesting but longer route, which is home to some beautiful Tarns (Sprinkling Tarn, Styhead Tarn). The weather wasn’t too good up on the mountain with little visibility in the clouds, which lead to a few moments of confusion as we went off track. Below are a few photos from on the way up, a selfie at the top and a couple of pictures as we came down and left the cloud cover.
The Great Barn at Hales Hall is such a stunning venue and Jen and Steve did a great job of decorating the barn for their wedding day. I was assisting Tim Doyle on this wedding, so below are some photographs of Steve getting ready for the big day, through to the speeches by the father of the bride, the groom and the best man. I think Steve may have been a little nervous before the wedding as you will see in the 10th photograph down. As soon as Jen had walked down the aisle, he got it together and was super relaxed for the rest of the day. Enjoy the photographs….
