Back in August I had the genuine pleasure to share the wedding day of M & M in the beautiful North Norfolk village of Holme-Next-The-Sea. They had actually booked me in Autumn of 2016 at the Knight's Hill Wedding Fair, and we actually met up in the March for a great engagement shoot down on the beach (it costme a smashed flash trigger, but there's no accounting for mother nature!)
The wedding day itself was blessed with beautiful blue skies and no lack of warmth, and we started by finding the ladies at the Old School House of Hair (http://www.theoldschoolhousehaircompany.co.uk) getting their makeup and hair needs being attended to. This is a fabulous little salon in an old school house, really friendly staff - and they make a great cuppa! After capturing the girls' preparations, we ventured on to Thornham to see the boys - who were mid-lunch! We did the obligatory groom's family and best man shots in the garden, and then headed back to see the girls for their final preparations, the dress and the first look with the father of the bride.
The journey to the church was very short – literally across the road! If only every venue was so easy to get to! The ceremony that followed was filled with smiles and laughter – an accurate reflection of the bride and groom and their approach to life. After the deed was done, I whisked them away to the beach for some bright and breezy couple portraits. The beach has some special childhood memories for them, so it’s wonderful that we could weave that into their day.
The garden-filling marquee was a blessing as we dodged a couple of showers in-between the obligatory group shots, and we then had a wonderful meal, followed by truly heartfelt speeches and the first dance.
It’s such a privilege to be invited into couple’s wedding days to be able to capture these memories for them. It’s even more fun when the couple are as warm and welcoming as M & M and their family – it was a such a pleasure to be involved.
