Hurley Lodge

Engagement Photography|Norfolk {Matthew & Gulnoor}  It had been a very hot day in Norfolk, but as early evening approached, it was starting to cool down nicely and the light was stunning. I met with London based students, Matt & Gulnoor, for their photo shoot, at Matt’s parents house in Dereham. Hurley Lodge is hidden down a country lane, nestled between rolling crops. A perfect location for their engagement shoot.

We took a nice walk around the extensive grounds, through the apple trees and the wild flowers. Then we wandered down the lane, to play in the corn fields. It was all great fun, until Matt was chased by a horsefly…his constant running away was comical.

We escaped the biting bugs and headed back to the Lodge for some sunset shots. As we waited for the perfect light, I spotted the sports car. Matt and his dad’s pride and joy. The boys built it themselves, it seemed only right we should use it for the shoot. Bright red and very fast, off matt and his fiancee Gulnoor sped, down the lane and out of sight. Upon their return, Matt turned to me and said, “your turn” and he took me for a spin too…wow, it was so much fun.

We arrived back at just the right moment, in perfect time, to capture the sun, as it set over an amazing shoot. I look forward to returning to Dereham and Hurley Lodge for the wedding.

An engagement shoot may seem like a luxury, but in my mind, it’s an essential. I am aware that some people don’t like having their photo taken, me included.  After a bit of time together, in front of the camera, people soon relax and actually start to have fun with it! When it comes to the wedding day itself, the photography side of things becomes the last thing you need to be nervous about.

A day on the broads with Sue & Jon

You gotta love it when your bride and groom say they want to do their engagement shoot on their boat! Today we spent a lovely day on the broads, aboard ‘Destiny’, and very relaxing it was indeed. I am really looking forward to their special day, Jon and Sue are such fun to be around.

Jo & Paul

In less than a month I will be jetting off to Portafino in Italy for the wedding of Jo and Paul. It promises to be a stunning occasion.

Jo & Paul are both so much fun to photograph. Here’s a taster of the fun we had in the sun last weekend at Forncett St Peter where they live.

I Do…Lizzie & Will Engagement Shoot Helmingham Hall-Suffolk

What a stunning venue for a wedding. The spectacular, moated, Helmingham Hall sits proudly amongst its tranquil gardens and Red Deer park. Lizzie and Will took me for a long walk in the gardens, it was hard to take in the beauty of this place. I look forward to shooting their wedding here in August.

Cathy and Les. Snowy Engagement shoot

Piping hot flask of tea at the ready and wrapped up warm, I headed out to Eaton Park to meet Cathy and Les for their engagement shoot. The weather did it’s best to put us off, but Cathy and Les just cuddled up tighter.

Looking forward to shooting their wedding at Southwood Hall, in May. The sun will shine on us this time, I am sure of it!
