Kate and Iain’s Southwold seaside wedding
I love English seaside resorts. There’s something very quirky and slightly eccentric about them that makes me want to don a kiss-me-quick hat and go for a paddle, so when Kate and Iain booked me to photograph their wedding In Southwold, I was really excited. So much so that I might have bought a heart shaped bucket and spade especially for the occasion…
Kate and Iain wanted to have a very Southwold wedding so after their beautiful ceremony in St Edmonds Church we headed down to the sea front and into the town for some portraits. It’s fair to say the patrons of the pub we visited for a sneeky pint were more than a little bit confused and Kate was papped by quite a few tourists as she walked through town in her beautiful Chanticleer gown.
Kate and Iain had their reception at the Stella Peskett Millennium Hall and they transformed the place with swathes of tule in white and blue to evoke the feeling of the sea, acres of pretty pastel flowers and touches of the seaside, from the shells in their centre pieces to the Southwold postcards that they got their guests to write messages on.
It was a joy to be your wedding photographer, Kate and Iain and thanks so much for introducing me to Southwold. It might just be my new favourite seaside town. A huge congratulations on your marriage.
