Adele & Simon’s Wedding and Blessing – Norwich
Well, you’ve seen the sneak peek and now it’s time for the real deal. A gorgeous Wedding in central Norwich, Adele and Simon had chosen to tie the knot at the Norwich registry office, Churchman House. This has the most beautiful features and massive windows that lets light flood into the ceremony room. After the ceremony we had a few shots in the gardens at the rear of the building before wandering down to Farmer Browns over at Tombland, where they had their reception lunch.
Now this is probably where a lot of wedding days end, but not this one. This is a two-parter and so the very next day I was invited over to Gressenhall, where Adele’s parents live, to photograph their marriage being blessed in the garden of her parents’ barn. It just so happens that Adele’s father is a man of the cloth and so performed a blessing for his daughter and new son-in-law. A truly magical moment and one that, as a dad, would feel very special too.
Family and close friends were in attendance and there was such a lovely summer vibe to the event as guests took their seats on hay bales, while others sat inside the marquee on this beautiful summer’s day. When it was time for the blessing Adele & Simon walked through the stunning gardens with massive beaming smiles, towards the marquee where her father was waiting to conduct the blessing. It was very clear that it was a tender and emotional moment for Adele & Simon, having your father conduct your blessing must be up there as one of the THE most special and memorable things to happen to you. Having concluded the ceremony there was plenty of applause from a very delighted congregation. The rest of the day was spent, as you would expect, enjoying the company of great friends and close family, drinking to a great day and enjoying the sun. Bliss!
