Back in July I headed over to the Dairy Barns in Hickling on a bright Friday morning for the wedding of Jennifer and Aaron. We’d already had a fun filled pre-wedding family shoot at Winterton beach with their two children Mia and Harry and energetic chocolate lab Jessie so I knew it was going to be a good day. It did not disappoint!
When I walked into Swallow’s Nest where the bridal party were getting ready, it was a hive of activity and within minutes I felt like one of the girls hanging out with this crazy bunch. Lots of giggles and drinks later and a quick run over the courtyard to cover some groom prep and it was time for them to get married! Mia did a great job as flower girl and it was a lovely, intimate ceremony.
After some drinks and celebration, the best man drove us to Sea Palling Beach to do some couples photos and Jennifer and Aaron absolutely smashed it in the heat. We even had time for a sneaky drink in the pub before heading back to the guests!
The evening celebrations started early with some shots at the bar and then there was a great evening of fun and dance and a delicious hog roast. As I left I started to feel a bit emotional as I’d had such a wonderful time capturing this day and truly felt like a friend rather than just the photographer. It took me about 20 minutes to leave because I just kept getting so many hugs! I do love it when I get to know couples and their friends and families well enough to feel like that, I always find you get the best photos when everyone is truly relaxed around you which can certainly be said for this lovely day.
