Aaron & Maria were married in the beautiful Greek Orthodox Church of St Spyridon, Great Yarmouth. The reception was held at The Ocean Rooms, Gorleston-on-Sea. Starting off with the traditional ‘dressing’ of the bride, celebrated with the attendance of close family and friends, the day is steeped with tradition and symbolism. Part of the ‘dressing’ had Maria writing all her bridesmaids names on the sole of her shoe, one tradition I haven’t seen for a long while. After the Greek Orthodox Marriage Ceremony the bride and groom were welcomed by a huge crowd and celebrated the night away with feasting, drinking and loads of dancing! It’s always great seeing previous clients of mine at weddings and especially so in the small but high-spirited Greek Community at Great Yarmouth.

The Greek Orthodox Marriage Ceremony itself is an ancient and beautiful event, which has been celebrated in its current form for centuries. After the ceremony the bride and groom were welcomed by a huge crowd and celebrated the night away with feasting, drinking and loads of dancing!
Harriet and Joseph were married just before Christmas at Sandon Hall, a beautiful country house set amongst hundreds of acres of parkland in Staffordshire. Its elegant interiors and extensive grounds made it a dream location for Harriet and Joseph’s big day.

It was also great to team up with Stuart of Stuart James Photography after many years of being in the wedding business.

The spectacular setting of Peckforton Castle provided an excellent backdrop to Claire and Paul’s wedding photographs which were taken by the talented Matt Gillespie.
Helen & Mathew were married at St Margaret’s Church where the guests were charmed by the beautiful singing performed by Helen’s students during the signing of the Registers.
