ST PETERS HALL BREWERY SUFFOLK WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Sam & Tim met in a pub. It set the precedent for their relaxed, fun wedding day as they married in St Peters Hall (aka St Peters Brewery). They then 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’m such a lucky wedding photographer having such very cool wedding venues like this one on my doorstep in Suffolk! Not only that, but also getting to work alongside such laid back, fun couples like Sam and Tim! Can we do it again guys?
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.
The Ceremony at St Peters Brewery & Hall
When we arrived, Tim had the biggest grin on his face and it didn’t budge all day. When I asked if he was feeling nervous, he just said he couldn’t wait any longer to see his bride! Ahhh. They giggled throughout the ceremony & then it was down to the garden next to the river. Summery drinks and afternoon tea style canapes followed. Family and couples portraits with a Suffolk countryside backdrop were next before we hopped on to their appropriately named party bus.
Their Wedding Reception at The Locks
Their party bus took everyone down the very narrow dirty 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 & somehow, Sam managed being incredibly graceful getting back on land! As soon as they were off, the couple had 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
