Hautbois Hall is a dedicated wedding venue in Norfolk and offers an alternative to a large hotel experience. Hautbois Hall in now my new favourite place to photograph weddings.
However, this is all about Robert and Sarah’s day that got started in the morning with them getting ready in separate locations at the venue. A lot of the decorations were created by the bride and the groom and are a great way to make personalise your wedding day. While Robert and his friends enjoyed a whiskey or two (or three), Sarah was calmly getting ready with her two bridesmaids and parents.
Seats were laid out on the lawn in front of Hautbois Hall for an open air wedding and it was an incredibly hot day! At just on 2.00 PM Sarah, her father and bridesmaids began to make their way to the front of the venue and to walk down the aisle to her future husband.
After the wedding ceremony and signing the wedding register, everyone enjoyed a drink and a catch up chat on the lawn before the start of formal wedding photographs. After wedding confetti was thrown over the newlyweds everyone began to relax and thoughts turned to the wedding breakfast. This was followed afterwards by three fine wedding speeches that everyone enjoyed.
A magician supplied the entertainment outside as the sun started to go down. Pretty soon Robert and Sarah were cutting the wedding cake before taking to the dance floor for their first dance as man and wife.
Then it was my time alone with the bride and groom. Having had a pre wedding photography session before, Robert and Sarah knew what to expect. So we spent a short amount of time at the drive in the tress before heading to the river as the sky was darkening. I had to get them back for a finale of the magic show but at this point the sun was setting with blue and orange in the sky so we set off for another short session at the front of Hautbois Hall. After such an fine day my last images outside were in the rain with my lying on wet grass. Just at that point the rain stopped, the sun come out and we had a rainbow appear and that folks is the first image you see on this post.
The photographs tell of a happy day filled with laughter shared with family and friends. Weddings don’t get any better.
