THE BOATHOUSE WEDDING – NICOLA AND CHRIS – NORWICH WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Wow, just wow! What an incredible wedding day on Saturday!
I’m not sure where to start with this one, there was so much love and attention-t0-detail put into this wedding day that any effort by me to describe it will fall woefully short – it was simply stunning. With a 1920s vintage theme to the day and a desire to make their day completely personal and unique, Nicola and Chris used the stunning backdrop of the Boathouse on Ormesby Broad to set-up the most impeccable of wedding days – absolutely everything was thought of and taken care of and, as a result, an incredibly relaxed and fun day was enjoyed by absolutely everyone, young and old.
Having met Nicola and Chris a few times for consultation, planning and an ‘engagement’ shoot, I was already really looking forward to spending the day with them – with the outstanding wedding suppliers they’d also booked for their day, I really did know that their plans were set for success. With Emily of Love Moi Makeup working alongside Tracey Ward on make-up and hair (both featured below!), you know that the ladies will look their absolute best and enjoy a relaxed and fun time preparing for the day. Working for the first time alongside Karen Walpole of Walpole and Howson videography I discovered the fun of ‘marryoke’, video messages and a whole lot more! Absolutely great for catching some very natural and fun reactions throughout the day and evening! Into the evening we had the sublime Joe Ringer Band providing the superb soundtrack to a busy dance-floor (a few shots below – as you’ll see, even the kids enjoyed belting out a bit of Adele!!) and all the while looked after impeccably by Belinda, Michael and their excellent team at The Boathouse. Even the weather played out well – nice and warm with some cracking soft light for photography – we didn’t get a sunset but we did get to use some lovely fairy lights that Nicola had used to decorate the jetty at The Boathouse for some late night shots.
All-in-all, if ever there was a perfect template for how to plan and execute a wedding in Norfolk, this one would have to be it – the result of a huge amount of love and hard work but ultimately a day packed with fun, laughter and tears of joy. Again, a massive honour to have been asked to try and do the day justice and to have been a very small part of something so special to a wonderful group of people.
Lastly, but most definitely not least, a huge thank you to Gina Manning for coming along as a second photographer – Gina is an awesome photographer, a fantastic person and has a highly successful wedding and lifestyle photography business of her own so it’s always a massive bonus on the rare occasions that we get the chance to work together – this wedding day was no exception with heaps of help, laughs and of course Gina’s great photographs. Thank you Gina 🙂
Now for a few images which will barely scratch the surface of what went down at The Boathouse yesterday!
