I am David Woodcock a professional photographer specialising in small weddings in and around the Norwich area. The Registry Office inside Norwich Castle is a commonly used venue for couples wanting a less formal occasion. It is also one of my favourite places to visit on a regular basis.

The smallest wedding that I have ever photographed is one in Southwold. It was of an eloping couple who married at The Electric Picture Palace, a small art deco cinema. The party was the bride and groom and the two witnesses were staff working at the cinema. The couple wanted a private occasion with photographs to show to their family and friends. Most small marriage occasions however have around 20 to 50 guests.
George and Amy pictured above married at Norwich Castle (Registry Office). I first met them when they visited my studio to discuss their requirements and again at their engagement photo shoot on Winterton Beach.
I highly recommend that you also have an engagement photo session. For the wedding, most of the 45 guests, including the bride were transported to the Castle in a double decker bus. I photographed their ceremony and also the start of the reception held at Hickling Barn.
Up to 50 guests is a nice number of people to organise and photograph. It provides the opportunity to get some portraits, group shots, confetti shots and other shots as events unfold.
I love to photograph small marriage occasions because they are often informal and more intimate. They normally provide the opportunity to spend more time with the Bride and Groom and to get some lovely portraits. My package starts at 2 hours coverage. You can add hourly increments and increase the time to suit your requirements and budget. With this package you get professional photographs at an affordable price. 2 hours coverage will enable me to see the Registrar before the ceremony, photograph your ceremony and to do a 1 hour shoot of individuals, groups and you as a couple afterwards. A further hour enables me to get to your reception in or near Norwich and to take photos of the venue, reception room, cake and a mock cutting of the cake.
