Norfolk Wedding Photographer - Great Massingham Summer Wedding

Great Massingham is one of Norfolks most picturesque villages and the perfect venue for a informal, countryside wedding.

" Hi David, we have just looked through our wedding photographs and they are amazing ! Thank you for all your time and effort on the day, we love them all. "

Becky & Dan

As we sit here shivering and the summer seems like a dim and distant memory I thought I'd post a selection of images from a wonderful Norfolk wedding I was commissioned for a little while ago. Becky and Dan were looking for a relaxed and unobtrusive style to their wedding photographs. 

As a documentary and fine art photographer it’s a privilege to be able to simply wander, watch and capture the magic of wonderful weddings.

With the exception of a few posed couple shots and some family groups I work candidly, capturing moments that tell the true story of the wedding day, nothing posed, nothing contrived. Just real moments capturing the real essence of the wedding day. 

I started the day at the Dabbling Duck pub, a great starting point for family and friends to gather and catch up over a refreshing drink before heading across the village green to St Mary's church for the wedding ceremony. Becky and Dan incorporated some lovely personal touches throughout their day, one of the most popular being an ice cream stand that greeted guests in the grounds of the church after the wedding. All the guests (and the photographer) tucked into Ronaldo's delicious,  locally sourced ice cream until the wedding party made their way to the village hall for the reception. Hay bales, bunting and a delicious BBQ followed as the sun set on a wonderful day for the happy couple. Here's a selection of my favourite images from this wonderful Norfolk wedding.
