Georgina and James’s Suffolk wedding

[dropcap]G[/dropcap]eorgie and James’s wedding was full of promise – and it really didn’t disappoint! What an incredible day. What an incredible couple. Georgie was the picture of quiet, stoic calm through out but then again being a nursery school teacher, she’s probably used to much worse chaos on a daily basis. James was determined not to let the nerves show and helped it together well – but to be fair, I’m not sure what he was more nervous about, the wedding or the first dance! Fate was smiling on them both with the weather – cold and breezy for the start of the day but as they turned down the aisle after their ceremony, the sun decided to come out giving us a glorious afternoon to enjoy the reception back at Georgie’s parents farm. Usually the groom gets a good roasting in the speeches but this time, the bride got a pretty good scorching too. An impressive bit of marquee building meant that the house was wrapped in two huge marquees, the reception area light and bright and the evening area black star clothed and ready for a full night of partying and entertainment. And did they party! I think Georgie’s father was hoping for an early night, not much chance there.

Many congratulations to the loveliest and most unassuming couple you are like to meet. And a couple who know how to put on a blummin’ good party!

Loseley Park spring wedding | Just One

[dropcap]B[/dropcap]y jingo! The weather has been good to me this year – and long may it last! Picture perfect day for Harriet and Kevin’s Loseley Park spring wedding and a picture perfect couple to go with it. Kevin and his family had travelled from the West Coast of the US for the wedding and, although I’m sure they are used to bigger and brighter days in Californai, it was a quintessentially English day. Grand country house, impressive estate gardens all steeped in centuries of history. Oh …and some pretty decent sparkling wine from Denbies vineyard where Harriet’s mother works. Drinking and talking about the weather, two of the British favourite conversational pastimes!

One thing the Brits aren’t known for are public displays of emotion which was definitely a challenge at this wedding. Not a dry eye in the house …I blamed my teary eyes on an early bout of hay fever, of course.

Here’s one of my favourite images from the day with plenty more to follow soon.

Botleys Mansion spring wedding

Botleys Mansion spring wedding | Just One

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he first wedding of the Easter weekend for me was Laura and Nick’s fantastic Botleys Mansion spring wedding. I had a simple brief …”get as much greenery as you can”. Thankfully the trees had enough early spring warmth to bring out the leaves (thanks mother nature, you helped me with that one …it would have been tricky without your help!) And to get a sunset shot. Things looked promising all day long, lovely blue sunny sky, lots of potential for a stunning sunset. Up until it was time for the sunset itself that is. So a bit of hasty rearranging with a couple of camera flashes and I think I got close to a decent sunset shot. I hope like it.

Congrats to the new Mr & Ms, many more favourite shots from the day to follow soon.

Suffolk spring wedding | Just One

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]’ve been looking forward to this wedding for ages! Georgie (or ‘Miss Georgie’) is one of the long-suffering nursery school teachers who has had to look after my kids over the years. I’d like to think that my kids were perfect little cherubs with excellent manners but when I pick them up at the end of a long day at nursery, their cheeky grins and poor Miss Georgie’s slightly weary face told a different story. Georgie swapped her bright pink nursery school teachers polo shirt for an absolutely stunning dress and veil. We were lucky enough to have the last of the full bloom of spring blossoms and daffodils out, perfect accompaniment to a perfect day.

Here’s one of my favourite shots from the day with many more to follow soon.

Granary Barns wedding photography of Rachel & Chris

[dropcap]E[/dropcap]verything about Rachel and Chris’s wedding was simply elegant. A lot of hard work and precise preparations had gone into this day with plenty going on but the whole day being completely seamless. I had spoken to them both about the wedding plans a while back and I knew that they had quite a lot to get together before the big day (not only that, the venue was still being refurbished at the time!) Sometimes you feel obliged to manage people’s expectations as to what is involved in planning a wedding but with these guys, I had absolute confidence in their drive and ability. Great teamwork, ably supported by family and friends, will get you the wedding you want – but it will also be a fantastic foundation for the life ahead. And with all this, I think they’re going to have a brilliant life!

This wedding had so much for everyone – style, grace, elegance, cakes (lots of cakes), even a little bit of early spring sunshine. It was intimate and spectacular at the same time. As we like to show off at weddings (everyone from Mum’s new hat to the tiniest details on the tables), it was the little moments that made it for me; the little looks, holding hands and the cheeky high-fives when no one was looking. Beautiful simple chemistry that made the Granary Barns wedding photography of Rachel & Chris an absolute joy. Keep an eye out for the hen parties highly choreographed and flawlessly executed dance at the end of the evening, superb work ladies. Next time, it’ll be the boys doing the routine!

Special mention to Amy and her team at The Granary Barns who made the whole day flow effortlessly.

Did I mention there were also lots of cakes?

Gosfield Hall

Gosfield Hall spring wedding | Just One

[dropcap]S[/dropcap]pring has well and truly sprung! And not a moment too soon – after a wet and windy winter, it is great to be having a proper spring days. The sunshine was almost electric for Meera and Tim’s Gosfield Hall spring wedding, let’s hope this bodes well weather-wise for the rest of the year. Bright, low-lying sun can be a problem for some photographers but really, it’s a great problem to have! Meera looked absolutely radiant throughout, undeniably the loveliest part of the day. The wedding ceremony itself was in the village of Little Maplestead, near where Tim grew up, in the ancient and historic of St John the Baptist (or The Round Church). This was their second wedding as they had a Hindu ceremony the week before so I imagine a genteel English village church and country house wedding reception was probably very different to just seven days previous. Two weddings is a rare treat although I think the various speech writers were under pressure to come up with fresh material twice! They managed it and stylishly done too.

Granary Barns Woodditton spring wedding | Just One

[dropcap]O[/dropcap]oh, I do like a good confetti moment. I love it when I look through the images from the day and I see all the joy, smiles, laughter and happiness. None more so than those moments when a bride and groom walk through the crowd of all their friends and family having confetti thrown at them, everyone getting involved cheering them on. Testament to Rachel and Chris was this fantastic reception they got as they walked down the church path after their wedding ceremony and were greeted by so many smiling faces. Such a lovely couple, unsurprising but well deserved. There was so much to their wedding, every detail had been engineered meticulously and even the early spring sunshine made a welcome appearance (well organised guys).

Plenty more photographs from their fantastic wedding day at The Granary Barns, Woodditton spring wedding to follow soon but here is just one of my favourites from a very happy day indeed.

[dropcap]A[/dropcap]aah, back in those heady days of 2013, when the sun shone. Remember those days, before all this rain? It’s hard, I know but trust me, I have photographic evidence to prove that at some point, we had sunshine (and we weren’t under two feet of mud and water.) On one of those brilliant sunny mornings back in November I was lucky enough to photograph Cate and her family in the woods in Polstead.

Woods + small children … it can only mean one thing … Gruffalo hunting! Perfect opportunity for a little adventure. Add in some late autumn sunshine filtering through golden leaves and you have the perfect day for some family photos. Two angelic and well behaved kids (well done parents, good work) but with a definite cheeky glint in their eyes, up for running around and getting some fun photos. Perfect way to spend a Sunday morning!
