Wai-Han and Ben's autumnal micro-elopement wedding deep in the Norfolk countryside, was full of by beauty. Hosted by Godwick Great Barn, they kept it quiet from friends and family, only to share their happy news their following week over Zoom.

The pause on large weddings has been hugely saddening for so many people. I, personally, miss the huge parties, long days of celebrating, seeing the ceremony room packed with everyone dear to the couple and the holding of hands and the hugs... the list goes on. However, what I have noticed (I'm always looking for the bright side), is that the increase in smaller, intimate weddings and elopements brings equal joy and refocuses the attention on the exchange of vows and the deep love between two people.

Other than the Registrars, and myself as their wedding photographer, there were two of Godwick Hall's staff acting as witnesses and myself in the room with Ben and Wai-Han's. Their wedding was truly a highlight of my year.

Their wedding reminded me you don't have to go big if you don't want to. A quiet, stylish and intimate elopement wedding took place exactly as they wanted.

As Wai-Han and Ben traveled on Godwick Barn's famous tractor to Godwick Hall's ruins I ran along behind. All I could hear was the wind in my ears and Wai-Han's giggles of happiness as she rode along the fields sitting next to her husband!
