What a great day – a day full of genuine love, happiness and fun for Cheryl and Ken and their families. It was a real pleasure to be their wedding photographer and the guys at Knights Hill did a brilliant job in making their venue special and their day run smoothly.
It was great to photograph a couple of beautiful, homely and comfortable Airbnb rooms just down the road (my most local ever job, I think!). The owners are lovely and very welcoming and honestly… if I didn’t live a quarter of a mile away, I think I’d go and stay! There’s a gorgeous garden and some lovely countryside views from the windows as well. Oh, and cake! What is not to love?
It was great to be asked to photograph the newly refurbished function room,’The Venue’, at Namco Funscape in Norwich. It’s great place for a wedding or a corporate function and the staff led by Vicky really do make every effort to have the room exactly the way you want it. I also got out onto the bowling lanes and the HUGE PacMan for some photos too 🙂
It was great to be asked to photograph the wedding reception of Ben & Philip, a few days after their very quiet wedding. They held the event at King’s Lynn Town FC banqueting suite and had a great turnout of friends and family to wish them well. We also had the opportunity to escape a little earlier in the day to Sandringham Park for come couple photos. It was a superb day and a great honour to be their wedding photographer. I’m proud to be an LGBTQ Equality Wedding Supplier so you can be certain that #youdontneedtoaskhere
It was brilliant to be working at Cley Windmill again for my first wedding of 2018. And it was my first outside wedding at this fab venue. Lisa and Graham were a real pleasure to be with and the ceremony was extremely relaxed and fun. Set off of course by the great location and good weather. What’s not to like?
It was a very exciting couple of days both exhibiting at, and taking the official photographs for, Turn the Page Artists Book Fair 2018 which took place in Norwich at The Forum recently. The quality of the work from all of the book artists and their friendliness and readiness to interact with each other (and the photographer!) was great. Can’t wait to apply for next year’s event now.
I was recently extremely fortunate to be offered the opportunity to photograph a very old and very beautiful document in preparation for it’s exhibition in the United States at The Yale Center for British Art (yes, THAT Yale!). The document was the heraldic pedigree of the Paston family and it dates from the latter part of the 16th century. The Paston’s were at that time one of the most prominent families in East Anglia and some of Norfolk’s leading landowners. It was gloriously hand painted and lettered by Robert Cooke: a lot of the colours are still very vivid and some of the individual coats of arms and the elements within them are stunning. The icing on the cake is that a number of my photographs made it into the beautifully produced 589 page exhibition catalogue called The Paston Treasure which is now available for sale – you need a bit of a mortgage to buy a copy but I was very fortunately sent a complementary copy as a contributor (it’s here on Amazon if you’re really interested). In a few weeks, the exhibition will also be at Norwich Castle… Needless to say, very chuffed about the whole thing…
Sandra and Vince got married at the ever wonderful Cley Windmill. A wedding here is also an excuse to visit Cley beach, which is only five minutes away in the car. Two glorious aspects of one great venue. These two really entered in to the spirit of being on the beach even though it was a little cool and turning rainy. Love it!
