I am David Woodcock a photographer who co-ordinated a wedding, prom and evening dress photo shoot at Cley Windmill. This was for The Wedding and Special Occasions Magazine.
The Mill is about 5 miles east of beautiful Wells Next The Sea that has a variety of hotels, pubs and shops with excellent car parking close to the beach. It is also approximately 5 miles north of the historic town of Holt.

I am very grateful to the following team of wedding and events suppliers. They contributed their time, products and skills on the photo shoot:-
- Venue – Cley Windmill
- Hair – JB Bridal Hair
- Makeup – Perfect Pamper
- Wedding / Evening Dresses – Exquisite Boutique
I am also grateful to the beautiful models Zoe and Natalie a model / actress who gave their time on the photo shoot in return for images for their portfolios.
Unfortunately the weather on the day of the shoot was not very good. It was dull. The grass was also wet. To avoid spoiling the lovely dresses we had to work mainly indoors. The Mill gave us a room to use as a base and we also had access to most of the property to photograph the models. I had a couple of flash guns with diffusers so I was able to get the required images.
Jane and Julie did the makeup and hair. We worked for about one hour with the models wearing several wedding dress and evening gowns. After lunch we had another two hour photo session.
This photo shoot was also a great way for each of us to new images on our websites.
