Ten Norfolk wedding photographers share examples of their favourite work and detail a bit about their style
Simon Watson Photography
"This wedding was just before Christmas for the wedding of Paul and Lousia Bassham. The whole day had been pefect at The Assembly Rooms in Norwich. Just before the evening guests arrived, I suggested we use the light tunnel for a wedding photo. There were a lot of people about when we got there, so I sat on the floor and waited as people slowly moved away. The photo was so well received by the couple and made it into the EDP and was Bride's Photo of the Week. We are now in our fourth year of full-time wedding photography and are loving every minute it."
Tom Rayfield Photography
"I love hearing my couples’ ideas for photos. Ellie and Ben wanted a photo in one of the nearby fields during the summer evening, and were as delighted as I was with how their idea came to life. As a creative wedding photographer I work around you in an unobtrusive, documentary style, so you can feel relaxed and can get on with enjoying your wedding day. I specialise in capturing real moments as they happen, so you can look back on your photos in years to come with a smile."
Xpressions Wedding Photography
"My style is to capture natural images which reflect this special day. I love this photo of Kylie and Jason as it highlights why good planning and preparation for wedding pictures is essential. I saw the opportunity and potential for this picture when I did my pre-wedding location recce at Kimberley Hall last summer, several months before the big day. The architectural design and lighting of the spiral staircase is simply stunning; there were so many great photographic possibilities. I met up with the happy couple at the hall the day before their wedding for a trial run, to ensure everything was in place to capture the atmosphere, and I think the result speaks for itself." Paul Stearman
Mark Ewels Photography
"My style of wedding photography couples natural images (so no wooden posing or cheeseball) and creative high impact photos, both of which I trust will be treasured for a lifetime. I have a relaxed and unobtrusive story-telling style and most definitely don’t take over your wedding day. I absolutely love this photo of Georgia and Ricky as it really defines the natural look that I favour with its lovely autumn colours and their impromptu romantic kiss."
Che Ballard Photography
"A fortunate last minute choice of location, along with the beginnings of a stunning golden sunset combined to really set off this bridal portrait, making it my favourite image. My style is very much documentary-based; I’m passionate about capturing the big day as it unfolds, along with all those special moments that can’t be staged, with as little influence as possible from me. Having a good rapport is really important. I’m there to capture all those happy memories, and I want your choice of photographer to be a part of those memories."
Charlotte Leys Photography
"Capturing emotion and finding beautiful light is what being a photographer is all about and I love this photograph because you can feel the connection between them. I’m a natural light photographer, and I love capturing timeless, fresh and natural images. Every wedding is special in their own unique way; I want to make sure that every couple looks and feels their most beautiful. My aim is to tell a story of your day and my style suits weddings that are light, airy, bright and pretty and couples who are head over heels in love."
Roland Blunk and Andrew Florides Photography
"To photograph a wedding thoroughly, we believe - like a marriage - a partnership is essential. Together we can jointly capture so much more. While one is photographing the bridal preparation, the other can be following the groom and ushers; the advantages are endless. Our partnership creates a perfect balance, providing creative, formal wedding photography with outstanding reportage in both colour and monochrome. Our aim is to capture the ebb and flow of human interaction, immortalising and defining the peaks of the day, as it develops into a moving and engaging story." Andrew Florides and Roland Blunk
Migle Markuza Photography
"This picture is the last moment before she said 'yes' to her future husband, the last moment she could look in to herself to see the best wife-to-be. My photography style is dictated by you and your big day. I believe photography is a powerfullly magical element which could create a different result and story each time. You can expect elegant and fashionable photos, either dramatic or emotional and full of laughter or tears. I do not believe in photography frames; I believe that a bride is Queen and a groom is King, so let the fairytale begin."
"In all the years I've been capturing weddings, it's always hard to choose a favourite image. I think this one stands out from 2017 as it was such a fun and romantic wedding set in a stunning location. Holkham Hall estate is a very big estate and you are spoilt for locations on the day; luckily the groom had arranged transport for us to drive around. This image just sums up my style: natural, relaxed and unobtrusive."
AJ Feather Photography
"My style is really relaxed and I let the magic happen. I capture your emotion naturally, which lets your love for one another and your family shine through in my pictures. I love to capture that one moment we all want to keep and cherish forever, whether it be a smile, your shoes, the kids running round nan, or just simply the bride and groom holding hands. This is my favourite image from 2017, featuring a corn field and a loving couple chatting in our couple session, giving them time to catch up and take in the first part of the day. I love this part of the day, to see two people in love and enjoying their day together. Magical." Arienne Jonas
