Hello campers! Summer is here *whoop whoop* and I for one am LOVING it! I have such a lush Norfolk countryside wedding for you on the blog today, and it was a proper exciting wedding for me. I photographed the bride’s Sister and her hubby (hellooo Vicks and Tom if you’re reading this) here in Rockland St Mary a year ago, and now I’m back for her Sister Charlotte and Ben’s wedding. Total bunch of legends this family were last year, so I knew I was going to be well looked after with ham sandwiches, coffee and loads of banter. They didn’t disappoint. I arrived in the morning and was immediately greeted by a bunch of waving bridesmaids on the amazing finished balcony, which was under construction last year. Such a stunning house, with a bootiful bride and a gaggle of gorgeous bridesmaids ready to rock the day. The awesome Flamingo Amy was there on hair duty and lovely Sarah Swaine for make up, doing their thing. Of course we got some nice reportage, detail and make up shots, but more importantly I was tasked with getting a few nice pics of the various dogs. After a bit of sweat, and not much joy, it turns out (unsurprisingly) that ham sandwiches will get a dog’s attention. I shall add that to my photography armoury. One hundred dog shots later, I scooted over to Ditchingham Church to catch up with the lads and folk arriving. Ben and the boys were on top form, and seeing Charlotte turn up with the biggest smile ever really set the day off. To be honest i found it hard to find a photo of Charlotte not smiling, she’s a happy one that’s for sure! The ceremony was lovely and outside a surprise awaited, which Ben had secretly organised. An amazing horse and cart to whisk them away. Charlotte loves her horses and sadly, also lost her very own horse recently. After tears and laughter the couple set off and we all whizzed back for the knees up. The rest of the day went just perfectly, the girls insisted on wading through potato fields to get a photo (honestly nothing to do with me ‘guv) and the lads worked their peacock suits in a wood shed. Just loads of fab photos from another fab day spent with this lovely lot. Loads of pics for you to browse through here, hope you enjoy the post. And if anyone needs a photographer to stand in field, you should probably call me x

My first blog post of the year, a wedding coming straight from Spixworth Hall Cottages. Norfolk has some amazing wedding venues most of which I’ve had the pleasure to document, but this was my first time photographing here. Wow, what a place. I loved it! I do love a bit of barn action, and that coupled with farm outbuildings and some moody skies and you’ve got the perfect recipe for some uber cool photography. Well, at least I think so! Anyway, enough about me and the weather, let’s talk about being in love and getting married eh? Today’s offerings are graced by the super lovely Stevie & Blue and their merry band of family and friends. Instantly welcomed, and made to feel a part of the crew, I knew it was going to be a belter of a wedding day. We started with a bit of bridal preps at Spixworth Cottages, such gorgeous accommodation for both the bride and groom to be getting ready. Then from there it was a quick whizz into Norwich for the ceremony at Christ Church Eaton. The ceremony was beautiful and everything was as perfect as could be. And a quick mention must go to the vocals of Patrick the vicar. Quite a fantastic set of lungs! On arrival back at Spixworth Hall I could see the weather was turning so we quickly photographed some group shots, couple shots and bridal party pics before the heavens opened. Check out the moody skies in the pictures, and the wind too. Was a battle keeping keeping the hair out of everyones faces, not for me though as I’m bald as a coot. It has it’s advantages. Then the speeches, well, what can i say? Plenty of tears and joy, Stevie and Blue both let loose bless them. A bunch of crackers though and as you can see from the photos we had an awesome day, and got a bunch of beautiful wedding images. Have a browse down and see what you think. And if you’re considering Spixworth Hall Cottages as a venue, go check it out. Enjoy!

New Year’s Eve wedding in Norfolk? Check. Excited wedding photographer? Check. The most stunning day in the deepest recesses of your mind you could possibly imagine? Check. James Powell working his flash skills to the max? Check! I’m (almost) lost for superlatives now I’m blogging about photographing the amazing wedding, of the equally amazing Linda & Tom. New Year’s Eve is a celebration in itself, but mix that up with a marriage at Binham Priory, and add a dash of class and elegance at the beautiful family home and a marquee to die for, and BOOM. You have yourself the picture perfect marriage to round off 2016. Details, decor, date and setting are just part of the mix as the avid followers of the blog (must be at least 10 by now) will know. It goes without saying that it’s all about the people, and Linda & Tom are the epitome of romance and love and what it’s all about. It began with Tom managing to pull off the ‘accidentally knock over the drink’ manoeuvre as an ice-breaker to strike up a conversation with Linda. Unlike when I have tried this in the past and have been thrown out of the club, it was the beginning for this couple and i’m not surprised. Both a couple of stunners and clearly crazy about each other, i’m just chuffed to bits they asked me to photograph the wedding! Their wedding was quite spectacular, with plenty of Latvian traditions coming from Linda’s side. So many beautiful colours and details, and the marquee was decorated so deliciously, the cupcakes literally wanted to jump off the plate into my mouth. I photographed alongside my old videographer pal Mike Reid from www.capturemediaweddings.com and we worked all the way through the night. Knocking off at about 1.30am I was ready to drop, but I couldn’t wait to edit and deliver the wedding photos. Below is just a fraction of what I photographed, I hope you enjoy them. If you’re still considering getting married in Norfolk on New Year’s Eve, or anywhere for that matter, all i can say is, do it. Just make sure you give me a call. Or at the very least, a cupcake.
