2015 – what a year for a wedding!
It’s always so hard to put together end of year highlights as there are just so many to choose from – which is why this post has ended up so long! Congratulations to the amazing couples that married this year, thank you for asking me to be your photographer.
During 2015 I’ve worked with some lovely couples, attended the most gorgeous and stylish weddings and visited some amazing and quirky venues. I’ve explored areas of Norfolk, Suffolk and London that I didn’t know about, shot weddings in beautiful woodland and meadows, an art deco cinema, and hidden greenhouses. I’ve also got to work with a super fab second shooter – thanks Rob Dodsworth. I really do have the best job in the world!
I loved snapping all the love, smiles, laughs and energy to create wedding photo stories which capture the big and small moments and details of magical wedding days. So grab yourself a nice cup of tea (or whatever your tipple is), put your feet up and enjoy some of my favourite wedding pics of 2015.
Happy New Year! Here’s to an amazing 2016. I can’t wait!

I had never been to Somerleyton Hall in Suffolk before I was invited to photograph James and Georgina’s wedding earlier this year. To get prepared before the big day, I took a trip to this gorgeous venue the week before to explore and make a shoot plan.
Somerleyton Hall is a stunning venue and perfect for the kind of relaxed, creative wedding photography I like to produce. There were nooks and crannies, garden boarders bursting with colours, quirky doorways to perfectly frame the bride and groom and greenhouses bursting with the scent of freshly grown tomatoes in amongst lush green foliage.
Both Georgina and James got ready at Somerletyon Hall which meant I was able to move between them capturing that exciting preparation atmosphere in both camps. There was so much energy and laughter and I loved incorporating the unusual backdrops of Somerleyton Hall’s paintings, furniture and taxidermy!
James had told me about the maze in the gardens and how keen he and Georgina were to have some informal photographs of them exploring it. We had planned to have a shot of them at the centre of the maze with the bottle of bubbly they had strategically hidden earlier in the day as a reward for the first guest who made it to the centre. But when it came to making it through the maze, we couldn’t find the way! With time ticking and the Wedding Breakfast about to begin I really didn’t want to be that photographer who got the newly married couple lost in the maze! So our plans were thwarted and we headed back out after a some fun couple shots. Luckily we found the exit in time to join the guests for the celebrations!
It was such a glorious day. I’m so happy to have been invited as James and Georgina’s wedding photographer. I hope you enjoy some of my highlights from the day. Look out for Stilton the dog, who was a canine ring bearer. He looked very dapper in his specially designed waist coat!
