The Norfolk Mead wedding photography
The Norfolk Mead wedding photography at its best is the only words to describe this wedding.
This is the wonderful wedding of Stacey and Sam that recently took place at the very stylish The Norfolk Mead wedding venue in Coltishall. I first met Stacey and Sam about a year before the wedding. They booked into one of my free engagement shoots. I instantly took a liking to them, such an awesome couple!.
The weather was looking a bit dodgy in the days leading up to the wedding day. But as luck would have it we missed the bad weather and only got one small shower. I was really pleased to have my new student/assistant Jamie with me for the day, we really bounce off each other and make a great team (watch this space).
When myself and Jamie arrived at The Norfolk Mead Hotel we were greeted with a room full of awesome bridesmaids. And of course not forgetting the very lovely Stacey. The Norfolk Mead bridal suite has two lovely large windows that portals light softly into the room, we utilised this light and captured some beautiful images of Stacey and her wedding party getting ready.
We then moved down to the Walled Garden where Sam and other guests were getting ready for the wedding ceremony. Sam was looking sharp in his suit finished off with a single flower and a small butterfly pin that was very special to Sam. The Walled Garden area has only been build for a few years but each time I return to The Norfolk Mead it looks more and more mature and has blossomed into a beautiful garden area.
The wedding ceremony was beautiful and the look on Sams’ face was priceless as Stacey walked down the aisle with her dad. I don’t usually say too much about the ceremony itself or post many pictures as I believe that this is a private moment that should be kept only in memory for the couple.
After the ceremony, the bridal party moved outside for canapes and drinks on the lawn, and for the all-important confetti shot. This time we didn’t use the meadow at The Norfolk Mead but instead decided to go just down the road to the river, where I broke out the large strobe and softbox which is my go-to weapon of choice when the sun is backlighting my couples.
The evening started to draw near and the night time guests started to arrive for the evening entertainment. Stacey and Sam had their dance then the dancing started with some of the older generation busting some funky moves! it is always great to see everyone having such an awesome time and enjoying themselves.
Later on, in the evening Stacy and Sam had the most awesome sparkler send-off which I have not photographed many of in my 18 years as a wedding photographer. This was also my first wedding using a totally new camera system that performed amazingly! Sorry Canon sony wins for me.
Awesome day and an Awesome couple. I would like to wish Stacey and Sam all the best in their future together. Chris Bottrell the Norfolk wedding photographer
