I first met Jenna at The Most Curious Wedding Fair in Norwich and loved the sound of her tea party themed wedding in their back garden. What I didn’t realise was that Oli and Jenna had only just moved into their house which still needed a lot of work done to it and so did their garden. How about that for a deadline to get your garden shipshape! In the last nine months they have moved in their house, landscaped their beautiful, long garden, which included digging out a very big pond and plan a wedding. They did a fantastic job, everything they described in our meetings came to life. After their ceremony at St Mary’s Church in Saxlingham Nethergate I took Oli and Jenna off for some couple shots at Smockmill Common whilst their guests mingled and sipped on champagne. Smockmill Common was perfect as it offered so many different backdrops and colours. I imagine we were a bit of a funny sight as I took Jenna in her white wedding dress and Oli in his morning suit on a little hike through the trees to find just the right spot!
Back at their house their garden had come alive. Tea lights scattered the lawn, signs with tips on living happily-ever-after hung from trees and table and chairs were spread out for their guests to relax on and chat. I wanted to show off the hard work they had put in preparing their garden for the wedding, I chose several spots for Oli and Jenna to pose including a shot of them standing in their hand built, fruit cage. A brilliant and quirky backdrop, scroll down to the bottom of the post to see.
As I left the party was still in full swing. The marquee was glowing and looked amazing from the road in all the evening mist.
A special thanks goes to my second shooter Cat Robson.
