Raveningham, Norfolk

Nick’s first stop was the upstairs dining room at The Swan at Loddon for the ushers lunch – a very relaxed, jovial affair of locally sourced food and ale. His next quick pitstop was the lovely Orchards Bed and Breakfast and Cottage to photograph the bride with her family as they were getting ready to leave for the church service at St Andrew’s. It was a beautiful day in early April and the white and yellow daffodils covered the grass leading through the parkland right up to the church door. Here, one was struck by the beauty of the entrance archway which was decorated with a mass of natural interwoven branches of scented white flowering shrubs and fresh green foliage – just stunning. For the church service, the bride wore a soft white angora jumper over her silk chiffon crossback wedding dress, cut on the bias. Her slim silhouette and head covered in a lace-edged floor length veil and delicate diamond tiara was very 1930s in feel. As was her bouquet, loosely arranged with lily-of-the -valley and white roses, and tied with a simple white satin ribbon. She was met by two sweet bridesmaids with flower garlands in their hair and dresses tied with pale green sashes and two page boys who processed with the bride and her father down the aisle to the altar. After the service the couple had a wonderful champagne reception in the grounds of the house. The spring flower theme with primroses and narcissi was carried through to the lovely natural table decorations and the sophisticated dark marquee lining with twinkly star lights and a black and white dance floor added to the night time glamour of this glittering party.

As always, Nick’s wedding images in colour and also black and white really capture the warmth and good feeling at this lovely country wedding party in Norfolk.
