West Lexham Wedding today. A treat for the eyes and senses! Firstly, what an absolutely stunning Norfolk wedding venue. It’s the first time Photographing here today, and I am totally in love with the place. You’ll see why when you look at Carina and Ryan’s wedding photo’s. Everything about West Lexham oozes cool, quirk, and boho vibes, pretty much the perfect place to get married if you want something a bit different. Tree houses, boating lake, swimming pool, stunning surroundings. And then put a bunch of awesome people on site along with a plethora of awesome suppliers, and boom, this happens! I have been looking forward to this one for a long time, and I can honestly say there was nothing to disappoint. On my arrival the Groom instructed me put shorts on if I had some, and not for the first time this year the legs were on display. Half photographer, half Ray Mears lookalike (minus the hair) I was set up for the day. Around every corner I was finding something original and beautiful to photograph. That goes for the people as well as the decor. The flowers, the cake the weather, the dress, just everything. Pretty much a wedding photographers paradise in Norfolk! No doubt I have seen some awesome wedding bands in my time but the dancefloor absolutely went off. I think the kids these days say it was “Bangin’!” The band absolutely smashed it too, I took literally hundreds of dancefloor pics alone. So much fun and a wedding I will always will remember. I’ve linked up all the suppliers at the bottom. Apologies if I’ve missed any wedding suppliers, please message me and I’ll add you. If anyone is looking for somewhere in Norfolk to get married, you just HAVE to put West Lexham on your list of venues to consider. Enjoy the pics. Love you guys. JP x
Southwold wedding up on the blog today. Pretty much my favourite place on earth. And to photograph a wedding in Southwold is pretty much my dream day. Add to the mix an awesome couple, a super gorgeous D.I.Y. wedding at Woodfarm Barns at Benacre, and you’ve got yourself one helluva wedding. Kick off with bridal preparations at the gorgeous Sunderland House on Southwold high street. It’s great that I’ve got to know a bunch of these ladies over time as I’ve shot pretty much all the friends weddings! Genuinely a brilliant, hilarious and slightly bonkers crew. Pretty much folk after my own heart.
Obviously the morning was amazing with the fairer gender, laughter ensued as always. Then the gem in Southwold’s crown (aside from Adnams), the wedding ceremony at The Electric Picture Palace in Southwold. What a place! Dripping with lushness, a stunning Art Deco building and perfect place to get married.
Everything about the Southwold wedding was superb, loving every minute with the beach to follow. The day just gets better and better. Carousels, frisbees, ice cream, beers on the beach. I mean, what more could you want? And then the incredible wedding set up at Woodfarm Barns, with loads of handmade stuff by the family. So personal and unique, D.I.Y. weddings are so much work but they are so worth it. Bursting with the personality of the couple which I love. Simply put it was an absolute pleasure to photograph, and sadly they are running out of friends to get married. If I ever get married you’re all invited! Love these guys, love this wedding, hope you enjoy too. JP xx
