THE NORFOLK MEAD HOTEL WEDDING – DAVID AND SAMANTHA – NORWICH WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Well here’s a great way to start any weekend, a set of images that are a festival of love and happiness!
David and Samantha are 2 of the warmest and happiest people that I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting and they and their like-minded friends and families enjoyed a simply brilliant wedding day at the stunning Norfolk Mead Hotel back in mid-October. It was my first time shooting a wedding at The Norfolk Mead Hotel and you could not ask for a better location for photographing an autumn wedding – lots of trees, the broads and a venue with huge glass windows letting in stacks of natural light. Combine that with such an amazing couple and group of guests and you have just about the perfect wedding day; work is not supposed to be this much fun.
The whole wedding day took place at The Norfolk Mead Hotel and after the most relaxed and probably most fun-filled ceremony that I’ve shot (not including Hindu and Greek ceremonies!), the afternoon and evening was spent in the beautiful and sheltered walled gardens and in the main function room. Although a damp day, the excellent Norfolk Mead Hotel staff managed to turn out the most delicious of BBQs – editing these images this afternoon has made me extremely hungry and eager to return to the Norfolk Mead Hotel for a meal some time. The evening entertainment deserves a special mention as it was the insanely talented Bill Downs. I’ve run into Bill a few times over the past few months, funnily enough ever since he was a brilliant Best Man at Justin and Emma’s incredible wedding day earlier in the summer. Bill’s a great guy and his presence at a wedding is a guarantee of absolute quality and a packed dance-floor (as the images below will testify!).
Anyway, as the weekend is calling, I’ll leave these images to tell a bit of a story about David and Samantha’s wedding day – a day that will live long in my memory and one bursting with personality, love, laughter and happiness. Just perfect.
I’ll sign off with a massive thank you to Samantha and David and their wonderful friends and families for being such a fun, helpful, considerate and relaxed bunch of people to spend a day with – I absolutely loved capturing your day for you.
