Alex & Dan’s wedding at Alex’s parental home in Long Melford was so much fun to photograph! From the moment I stepped into the garden on the morning of the wedding I could tell it was all set for the most amazing atmosphere, with more bunting than I’ve ever seen in one place, and an amazing amount of retro details, such as a record players sewing machine, bike an old phone, and plenty of signage. Areas of the garden, outbuildings and ¬†sheds were all designated areas, such as the bar. A real masterclass in retro themed wedding.

Alex’s wedding dress and hairstyle followed the theme amazingly well too, as did the groomsmen’s outfits. And when the wedding guests were dropped off in a vintage bus you realised they’d thought of everything!

After the wedding ceremony in Long Melford’ Holy Trinity church we had a short photography shoot with a handful of groups, and then followed the never-ending garden party in glorious Suffolk summer weather, until the wedding breakfast in the evening at the Bull Hotel.

A real pleasure to photograph beautiful people having a great day in beautiful surroundings, and you could appreciate the hard work that had gone into the preparation before the wedding!
