Jenny and Phil’s wedding was the second I had shot at The Octogon Unitarian Chapel, Norwich but the first I had shot at The Red Lion, a good old fashioned English pub set next to the river Wensum in Norwich city centre. I love the idea of having your wedding reception in a pub as I always think the venue helps to set the tone and holding a wedding reception at the Red Lion Pub created a really intimate, relaxed and friendly atmosphere which was just what the couple were after.
The Octogon Unitarian Chapel is a stunning, wooden clad building flooded with light located in the centre of Norwich. I have been shooting a lot of weddings in the Norfolk countryside recently and so as their wedding reception venue was only a 20 minute walk through the city it’s was lovely to use that opportunity to whisk Jenny and Phil off for their couple shots taking advantage of the quirky urban backdrops, vibrant buildings, cute shop door ways and graffiti covered walls.
This was one of my mini packages offering four hours coverage, but with the help of my super assistant Cat we managed to capture the all the fab homemade details Jenny and Phil had spent hours putting together, the imitate ceremony, all the love and laughter and the guests kicking back having fun.
I know it’s no longer halloween, sob, I have to wait another 260+ days. Halloween has to be joint top day of the year next to firework night, beating Christmas (yes Christmas) and even New Years eve!
So to help me with the long wait I thought I’d put together a photo blog of my time trailing my very eager nieces and nephews trick or treating. They could not believe their luck – ‘yes Otto, you do get to dress up in blood dripping clothes, scare people and are rewarded with chocolate!’ Fun times, the best times.
Long live family and the tradition that is halloween!
Sometimes I find it really hard to shop for my family at Christmas, they seem to have everything! However, I have discovered the one thing they will always love to receive is a family photograph. So, in the run up to Christmas I am offering 15% off my Norfolk family photography shoots!

It’s October and yet I am wearing a t-shirt, the sky is blue and I wish I’d brought my sunglasses! Very bizarre for this time of year but perfect for Rebekah and John’s engagement shoot on Wells beach, Norfolk. We explored the woods, dunes and beach huts. They ran, they leaped, and they smiled a lot! A perfect way to end a busy week. I can’t wait to show you the rest.
Oh WOW, I still can not believe my eyes! I’d heard a lot about East Ruston Old Vicarage Gardens but it wasn’t until I saw it myself could I believe the colours, landscaping and variation of plants the garden have to offer – such a delicious visual treat.
They don’t usually hire out their gardens for weddings but made an exception for James and Alaine’s weekday wedding. What was lovely was they were given so much flexibility and so were able to marry outside using the gardens as the backdrop. Friends serenaded Alaine and James, whilst others led the beautiful service. Bubbles fell over the couple instead of confetti which lead to a gentle and graceful moment for the newly Mr + Mrs Knight.
Alaine’s walk to James took her and her bridesmaids time through the twists and turns of the abundant and exotic foliage. It was easy to forget we were in deepest Norfolk countryside.
The speeches were done by candlelight (and mobile phone light!) and couple shots were taken both during the glorious golden hour and also under the full moon. This might have been one of my top most special moments – exploring this incredible garden, with two super people, under a full moon and a sheet of stars.
Here’s to Team Knight! Have a wonderful life together James and Alaine. x
