I was very fortunate to visit Narborough Hall Gardens, a superb venue, to take some wedding photographs on the longest day of the year. James and Elodie married at St Margarets, Burnham Norton. Their reception took place at the magnificent Narborough Hall. Set in the valley of the River Nar, this is one of Norfolk’s most beautiful and romantic private houses.

It was a fabulous day for a wedding. The weather was perfect, sunny with a temperature of about 20 degrees Celcius. The family and guests were also delightful.
About a half mile north of the town of Burnham Market is St Margarets church. It is located on a hilltop and is one of the most beautiful of round tower churches on the North Norfolk Coast. Included in his list of wedding photography requirements, James asked for images of the church, views of the surrounding marshes and the most notable feature of the church, a heptagonal wineglass pulpit with 6 painted panels.
The church also has an art deco east window containing images of the 2 St Margarets. There is a roll of honour in the church. The most famous name associated with this parish in Horatio Nelson. His father and later 2 of his brothers were Rectors here.
The couple also requested some formal and candid images of the wedding and reception. At Narborourgh Hall, in the white gardens the guests, enjoyed drinks and canopes. With Elodie and her side of the family being French, Narborough Hall was the perfect setting. Elodie looking stunning in her Rouland Mouret designed dress. In keeping with the French theme the wedding cake was a croquembouche, a dessert consisting of choux pastry balls filled with cream, piled into a cone and bound with threads of caramel. Unfortunately I didn’t get the opportunity to eat some.
Narborough Hall Gardens are also French in style. The gardens house a large marquee ideal for wedding receptions and there are varied habitats including meadow, wetland, woodland and ancient parkland. With it being Summer Solstice it was the perfect time with lovely evening light for me to photograph the gardens.
I would like to wish James and Elodie a long and very happy marriage and to thank them for allowing me to be their wedding photographer.
James said “David these photographs are fantastic – great job! We are thrilled by them. You captured exactly the right blend of formal and informal, people and landscapes which we wanted. Thank you so much.”
