Our next wedding was at Thorpeness Country Club for the fantastic Sarah and Simon’s day. The weather forecast for this day was not good (and I mean double spot of rain on the BBC weather app all afternoon!) but they thankfully got it wrong and we were outside for all of their reception time! The sun even shone on us and we saw lots of blue sky for much of their day and the storm clouds look really dramatic in their beach photos.
This was another beautiful wedding for us, so much bunting and rustic vintage flowers (by the fabulously talented Rachel at The English Rose Florists) with the most delicious fringe tulips. On each of the tables the name places had a polaroid photo of each guest (a quirky take on name places) and there were jam jars of flowers everywhere. We worked with Lorraine at Thorpeness Country Club who was brilliant and everything ran smoothly with no hitches! The bridesmaids had the most unusual and flattering lilac floral dresses – I know that doesn’t sound that nice but if you have a look through the photos below you’ll see them. I thought they were very beautiful and the girls looked fabulous in them.
It is always a treat when we photograph couples like Sarah and Simon who are so relaxed about their photos that they allow us to see what is happening on the day and just capture it which in my opinion always leads to the best photos and very many happy memories for them to look back on.
Both Sarah and Simon looked stunning. Sarah wore a beautiful fitted lace dress and Simon a dashing blue suit with purple waistcoat and a Liberty print floral tie.
A few days after their wedding (and before seeing their photos) Sarah sent me this lovely e-mail which I’m sure she won’t mind me sharing:
Just a little e-mail to say thank you for being our phtographers last week. Without you I’m sure we wouldn’t have known what to do when, it was great to have you there to reassure and guide us! Everyone we have spoken to has mentioned how great you and David were, and so nice to have around. We look forward to seeing the photos in a few weeks.

It means a lot to us to get such wonderful feedback.
So here’s what you’ve all been waiting for and a small peep of the photos from their day
