Briarfields Wedding Photography // Tor and Damien

Wedding Photography in Titchfield

On a Friday afternoon in early September Mrs T and I jumped in the car and made the long journey across the country to Titchwell in Norfolk to shoot Tor and Damien’s Briarfields wedding photography. Now Mrs T doesn’t normally join me on my wedding expeditions, but as Tor was one of her old York student house mates she was also invited along for the day. Tor is a life force unlike any other person you’ll ever meet. When I first met her, within seconds, it was like I’d known her for 20 years, she’s a huge character, up for anything and someone who is always laughing, so I knew this wedding was going to be one of the highlights of my year. However, it exceeded even my lofty  expectations and became one of the best weddings I’ve ever photographed!

Brancaster Beach Photos

With an Aussie who hails from the Gold Coast and a location right by the sea, there was only one place for the couple photos, Brancaster Beach. It was whilst shooting the couple photos that I noticed Damien was a total natural in front of the camera and I even complimented him on how good he was. An hour later I felt like a bit of a clown when I found out that Damien is something of a celebrity in Brisbane as he’s an investigative journalist for Seven News in Brisbane. So it’s no wonder he knew what he was doing in front of the camera.

Briarfields Wedding

The rest of the day was fantastic, with lively bridal prep followed by a laughter filled church service in Wells By The Sea. Once we’d grabbed the couple photos and a handful of formals we had the wedding breakfast which was fantastic.  The chef at Briarfields has since made it through the semi-finals of  Masterchef: The Professionals, which tells you how good the food is! In fact the whole team at Briarfields were excellent all day long and they couldn’t have been more helpful with me if they’d tried. To round the day off I managed to get one of my favourite ever first dance photos, which pretty much summed up how amazing the whole day was. I can’t do Tor and Damien’s wedding justice in this blog, it just worked and it was one of my wedding highlights of 2014.

Elixir Ibiza Wedding Photography // Vicky and Matt

Elixir Ibiza Wedding Photography.

Elixir Ibiza Wedding Photography

Sometimes I can’t believe how lucky I am in my job. Being booked to shoot Vicky and Matt’s Elixir Ibiza wedding photography was definitely one of those moments. I’d met Vicky and Matt when I shot Debbie and Karl’s wedding at The Saddleworth Hotel in 2013. At the time Vicky was thinking of heading off abroad for a destination wedding and she asked if I traveled (which I emphatically said yes to!) A few months later Vicky and Matt had found their dream venue and had set their hearts on Ibiza and Elixir Shore Club. So I booked a Jet2 flight and in the middle of August flew out to the White aisle for my first ever Elixir Ibiza wedding photography job!

Wedding in Ibiza

Vicky was getting ready in Cala Llonga so I met her there for the bridal prep before sharing her taxi over to Cala Codolar to Elixir Shore Club. What a venue. A shabby chic paradise, set high on the cliffs over a small beach, Elixir is something else. Vicky was walked down the aisle by her brother before Matt and Vicky shared their wedding blessing in front of the stunning views of the sea. With glorious sun shining down it was one of the those moments where I had to remember I was actually working. A totally amazing service finished and the open bar started (so I knew it was going to be an amazing wedding). Although it did get a little hot (even the staff said it was a little warmer than usual, peaking at just over 40 degrees), everyone soaked up the sun and prosecco before I took the wedding party down to the beach for the group shots. Vicky and Matt didn’t want anything boring or stuffy, so we set the lads up to look cool and the girls to have fun. I LOVE the group shots, easily some of my favourite I’ve taken.

Ibiza Sunset

I was then invited to eat with the wedding party and I can hand on heart say this was the best wedding food I’ve ever eaten. A barbecue to beat all barbecue’s. It’s worth having your wedding at Elixir Shore Club for the food alone it’s that good. Then, as the sun started to set I grabbed Vicky and Matt and we went back down to the beach to get the classic Ibiza sunset in the couple shots. It was a spectacular experience and I think the shots do the sunset justice, before we headed back to the speeches and a huge party (which I get thoroughly involved with when the Nikon’s were packed away!)

Without doubt, the coolest wedding of the year and one of the highlights of my wedding photography career. Ibiza is a brilliant venue for your wedding blessing and Elixir is one of the best venues I’ve ever worked at. A stunning venue with amazing views and it’s run brilliantly by the team there. I cannot recommend it highly enough and if you are planning on heading out there, I’m more than up for a some more Elixir Ibiza wedding photography.
