ST PETERS HALL SUFFOLK WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Sam & Tim met in a pub. It set the precedent for their relaxed, alternative wedding day as they married in St Peters Hall (an old brewery) and proceeded to have their reception at the uber cool pub The Locks in rural Geldeston in Suffolk. Their beer mat invites stated there would be a lot of drink and dancing involved. They didn’t lie. It was so. much. fun.
I’d met Sam & Tim a few times before their wedding, but on the special day I went along to Belle View where Sam was getting ready with her parents and bridesmaids. It was here I learnt about just how much time it had taken Sam to make each of the beaded bouquets – answer: an incredibly long time. Just FYI, Sam was super happy with them but said she would never do it again. Labour of love and all that! Belle View is uber quirky (photographers dream, can I just live there please?) and had lots of spots to take photos in before we set off for St Peters Hall.
When we arrived, Tim had the biggest grin on his face and it didn’t budge all day. When I asked him if he was feeling nervous at all, he just said he couldn’t wait any longer to see his bride! Ahhh. They giggled throughout the ceremony and then it was down to the garden next to the river for drinks and afternoon tea style canapes. Family and couples portraits with a suffolk countryside backdrop were next before hopping on to their party bus which took everyone down the very narrow dirt track to The Locks. Once the guests arrived by bus, they grabbed handfuls of confetti and waited for Sam & Tim to make their arrival on a – wait for it – boat. That’s what I call an awesome entrance. A boat decorated with white carnations soon appeared on the horizon and somehow, Sam managed to be incredibly graceful getting back on land before the couple hand confetti pelted over them – then the party really got started! Giant thanks and lots of love to Sam, Tim and their loved ones – I had the best time. x
