Laura & Craig’s relaxed and fun wedding at Elms Barn countryside wedding venue near Beccles

I’d been looking forward to photographing Laura & Craig’s Elms Barn wedding ever since they booked me – my first time shooting at this ever popular wedding venue near Beccles on the Norfolk/Suffolk border.

“…thank you so much for everything that you did on the day. You were so professional and made both of us, and all our guests, feel completely at ease. We’ve had so many comments on how friendly and unobtrusive you were!”

A beautiful bride and handsome groom, dapper gents and gorgeous girls – what more could I ask for on my very first visit to Elms Barn! I’d been looking forward to Laura & Craig’s big day ever since they booked me more than a year before the wedding and it didn’t disappoint in any way. Laura looked incredible in her sweetheart-neckline dress and full-length, lace edged veil. Craig and the gents opted for smart, contemporary, single breasted blue suits. When it came to flowers, the couple had to look no further that Craig’s sister Hannah – owner of the highly regarded and popular Stock Florist in Essex.

The day had an incredible warmth and friendliness, which from a photographers point of view is priceless. I aim to be just a part of a couple’s wedding, rather than the centre of attention and always try to chat to guests throughout the day. This helps everyone feel at ease when being photographed resulting in candid, informal and unforced shots. It was also clear from the outset that the couples friends and family like to sing, dance and party – with guests even serenading the couple during the wedding breakfast to an impromptu rendition of the Aretha Franklyn classic ‘Say A Little Prayer’!

Special mention should be made of the really lovely and well kept gardens at Elms Barn. They make the perfect backdrop for couple photos, as in the picture above.

Credit where credit’s due – Laura & Craig drew on the help of the following suppliers to complete their day: Laura’s dress was by Enzoani from Essex bridal boutique Bellissima and her stunning shoes from Jimmy Choo. Bridesmaids dress were ordered online from For Her & For Him. Hair & Makeup was by Millie Rose Beauty from nearby Lowestoft. Craig & the gents wore sharp, navy blue contemporary suits from Anthony’s Formal Wear. The truly beautiful flowers were by Stock Florist. The couple married at Elms Barn near Beccles on the border of Suffolk & Norfolk. Guests were entertained during the day by Soul II Soul Acoustic and danced in the evening to DJ Shanks. The day was filmed by Essex based videographers Wire Frame Media.
