Well it’s certainly been some time since I’ve blogged anything, I have loads of excuses: editing, shooting, 3 kids (madness), etc. But really I’m just being slack and I know I need to get on it, not least because it allows me to relive some beautiful memories. It’s kind of weird when you finish a wedding, send the photos off, design an album and so on, after that you don’t often get the opportunity to look back and reflect on the work you’ve done and the people you’ve worked with, and when you do, I can tell you, it’s a real pleasure. That is the thing when you work as a wedding photographer, you become so emotionally involved in the wedding, you care, and you’re intensely happy when a beautiful couple – such as Bella and Adam – actually tie the knot. I often have to hold back a tear or two during the ceremony or the speeches (my excuse is that I have become much more emotional since having kids – that is a thing, right?).
I love the way weddings have become an opportunity for couples to creatively reflect their personalities. Bella and Adam’s wedding seemed so fitting, the rustic charm of Morston Church on the North Norfolk Coast and Godwick Barn seemed to mingle effortlessly with everything from the flowers, to the dress, to the table designs. What an amazing day we had, just about everything an English summer could throw at us: torrential rain, moody skies, thunderstorms, bright sun, soft sunsets. All of which completely added to the wonderful atmosphere of the wedding itself.
I’d heard great things about Godwick Barn and it certainly did not disappoint. It really does have a very special feeling to it, knowing of its history and imagining the countless celebrations which must have occurred centuries before just metres away – it’s worth checking out.
But anyway enough words, take a look at the photos, happy days!
