This was my first trip of the year to the gorgeous Elms Barn near Beccles and I was super excited for Josh and Erin’s day. The team at Elms was lead but he lovely Tori on the day and they are wonderful hosts always looking after the guests (and us!) like royalty!
I hadn’t met Josh and Erin before, Erin had seen another of my weddings at the gorgeous Elms for Georgie whom she worked with a couple of years ago and loved the images so booked me by email! I couldn’t wait to meet them and they were just as I had expected, warm, relaxed, excited and I have to say super in love!
I started with the girls and captured them getting ready at the beautiful bridal rooms and then headed to the boys (of which there were hundreds!) getting ready at the cottages by the barn. They all had flat caps and waistcoats and a distinctly ‘peaky blinders’ theme of which Josh is a fan!
Back with the girls Erin got into her stunning dress and unveiled it to her dad and bridesmaids before we headed off to capture the guests arriving. After a beautiful ceremony they exited to handfuls of confetti! The sky was looking a little grey so we headed off to capture their group photos and then their couple shots before it was time for the guests to be seated.
Elms has the prettiest gardens and a really stunning orchard which was in full bloom with the prettiest pink blossom trees so we took advantage and captured their bridesmaids, groomsmen and lots of their couple shots under the blossom trees.
Back at the barn the guests were being seated and at just the right moment the rain appeared. After a delicious three courses meal including bangers and mash (my fave!) we didn’t get golden hour but Josh and Erin were up for heading out for a few more photos which we captured at the edge of the most gorgeous rape seed field next door!
After their first dance the dance floor got busy and they had a game of ‘Mr and Mrs’ just before I left and managed to grab a few photos of.
This was so much fun to capture with the amazing Tom from Browns films (I can’t wait to see the video!) Huge thanks to the Elms Barn team as well as Amy for assisting on the day.
Have an incredible honeymoon guys and I can’t wait to share the rest in a few weeks time!
