2018 Wedding Highlights

2018 Wedding Highlights – This blog post has been a long time coming but after a mad month of wedding admin and consults I have finally sat down with a cuppa to put together ‘the best bits’ of my 2018 Wedding Season! I have had such a brilliant year photographing at different wedding venues such as Hales Hall, Oxnead Hall, Sussex Barns and The White House, Voewood, Cley Windmill and many more! As well as shooting at beautiful Norfolk Wedding Venues I have also been super lucky to have photographed chilled and creative intimate weddings at couples’ homes and farms this year! The following page displays some of my absolute favourite shots of some of my absolute favourite couples!

A Winter Wedding | Norfolk Wedding Photographer

WINTER WEDDING, NORFOLK

MR & MRS TOTTEN

This beautiful winter wedding featured one of Norwich’s iconic landmarks aka Norwich Castle, a true vintage style and one of my favourite places to eat cream tea. the Norwich Assembly House and of course the loveliest couple!

This super lovely and super chilled winter wedding was actually my first ever winter wedding! Taking place on the 23rd of December, both Joe and Holly were keen to incorporate Christmas into their wedding but in a non-cheesy manner. With this in mind, I felt that it was important to use twinkly lights in the foreground and background of some of the shots to create a seasonal feel in a non-obvious way. Holly looked so stylish and I absolutely loved her, her sister and her Mum’s 20’s styled sequin dresses and matching coloured faux fur coats (which were perfect for keeping the ladies warm!!) Joe could not have looked more dapper. Being in the RAF, of course, he had to wear his super smart uniform! This wedding day was filled with incredibly relaxed and lovely people which made my job very easy when it came to documenting the day as it unfolded!

This wedding filled me with confidence and love for winter weddings. Like most photographers, I was a little dubious about winter weddings as they are completely different in terms of weather, temperature and light to Summer weddings! I was very keen to maintain my light and candid photography style which I do feel like I have managed to achieve! If you are planning your winter wedding (or Spring, Summer or Autumn wedding) please visit my main wedding page or pop me a message via my contact page!

The Nor-Folk – Norfolk Family Photographer

T H E

N O R – F O L K

F A M I L Y

Nor-folk Megan Duffield Family Photography
Ever since joining Instagram I have found a new love for lifestyle bloggers, vloggers and designers whose feed/ everyday life is very much a part of their brand with every photo carefully posted with a clear aesthetic. The Nor-folk are ‘A graphic design-led lifestyle brand’ creating clothing, accessories and homeware with their own minimalistic stamp.
I originally came across ‘The Nor-folk’ when a lady walked past me whilst shopping in Norwich holding one of their classic signature tote bags. I then discovered Fiona (one half of Nor-folk) on Instagram where I came across her beautiful, minimal feed; her designs, clothing style, amazing factory apartment and most importantly their family unit consisting of Bobby (Husband – the other half of Nor-folk) and their gorgeous little boy Stanley. What I love most about The Nor-folk is that Bobby and Fiona are very open about their family and dedicate a lot of ‘play hard’ time around their busy work schedule. Their ‘work hard, play hard’ approach to life is very much something I admire as its something my Parents have always believed in when bringing myself, my sister and my brother up – ‘work to live do not live to work.’
After admiring Fiona’s work for some time and adoring the shots she posted of little Stanley on social media, I finally plucked up the courage and sent her a private message through Instagram enquiring as to if she would be interested in a family photo-shoot. To my surprise she pretty much replied within ten minutes saying yes! Little did I know that they would be sat in my kitchen drinking tea and eating sausage rolls two days after Boxing Day!!
For a couple who are so successful and so cool (I couldn’t think of a sleeker word but cool is definitely what they are..) Bobby and Fiona were so approachable and simply normal! I was rather nervous the morning of the shoot due to them both pretty much dominating the design industry in Norfolk. It was such a refreshing and ‘punch the air with happiness’ moment when they both came back to me with such positive and genuinely happy feedback after seeing the photos!

Stanley was an absolute dude and found the whole experience of snow machine, horses, cats and frosty grass (and frozen pond) very intriguing! It was a super cold morning so his poor little hands and nose were rather pink however it didn’t stop him from smiling, running around and playing hide and seek (I wish I had his energy levels!!)
I think you will agree that his cheeky little grin and adorable little laugh made the photos – it was a fun filled morning with lots of running around and plenty of giggles! The Burrage’s were exactly how I pictured them as a family – so in love with their little boy but also able to laugh at Stanley’s harmless tantrums and comforting him with a massive kiss on the cheek when he started to get tired. It was so lovely to meet them all and hear the Nor-folk journey as it made me feel super inspired and eager to get going with my own work!
I am so pleased that I plucked up the courage and finally enquired about hosting a family photo shoot for the Burrages. I had been dying to meet Fiona and Bobby since day one as I have been in ore of their brand – how it came about and how well it has progressed over such a short period of time! It is also so lovely to hear a success story that has happened amongst the sleepy streets of Norfolk! As well as Nor-folk, both Bobby and Fiona co-run TheClick “A design consultancy specialising in creating new brands and reinventing established ones.’ (move over Jay-Z and Beyonce!) AND Fiona also works as a Photographer too – I think I know where Stanley gets his endless energy from!
It was also great to talk about myself and my own plans and ambitions. I am currently studying a Foundation CIM course whilst working a couple of days at a marketing agency alongside my photography work so it was lovely to get some advice as Fiona has also put herself through the CIM qualifications. It was just lovely to be able to sit and chat with true professionals in the design industry that are so laid back and down to earth whilst defrosting our fingers and toes sipping tea in my family’s kitchen.
I am genuinely so happy with the photos! My aim was to capture Stanley in my usual candid style so that Fiona and Bobby could have photos that reflect his true, cheeky personality – and feature them in the shots too as they are usually behind the camera! I really hope you have enjoyed scrolling through and reading a little bit about The Nor-folk! If you too love hearing about success stories in Norfolk or are interested in design and love the Scandinavian/ minimal aesthetic please check out their website if you haven’t already! You can also see their amazing Penthouse via their Instagram (SEE BOTTOM OF PAGE) – well worth a gander as the Burrage’s have been featured on Made.com for their interior design and styling. (There is also a fab video on their home and the thoughts behind their interior design here.)

My 2016 Round Up – Norfolk Wedding Photographer

2016 - WHAT A YEAR!

NO politics included (I promise!)

I SAID GOOD BYE TO MY BELOVED JOULES FAMILY

I started working for one of my favourite clothing brand’s in 2014 when I was studying at University. Naturally after graduating I didn’t really know what it was I wanted to do. At the time I was back and forth to London working as a photographer’s assistant for Alexi Lubomirksi when he visited London to work from America and part time work in a retail shop worked quite well as it fitted in with my photography work.

Little did I know, I found a job where I became friends with EVERY colleague. For this reason it did not feel like being at work when I was there and I became very happy (and comfortable!) At times (like Christmas as January sales) it was tough but the team were brilliant and everyone managed to have high spirits. When I started photographing weddings I became a store supervisor and worked 48 hours + plus some weeks. It was tough and tiring but worked well as my lovely manager was so understanding of my weekend photography work!

Unfortunately throughout 2016 people moved on and I realised that my photography needed to become my main priority, so in September this year I handed my notice in – a very bitter sweet feeling but you have to make the jump in order to get somewhere I guess (girls and Toby, if you are reading this I miss you all!)

JOULES

Myself and a few of the girls I had the pleasure of working with!

Norfolk Wedding Photographer

I FOUND A LOVE FOR OUTDOOR WEDDINGS!

Like many photographers who start out, if I was approached by a bride/ groom I instantly said yes regardless the type of wedding it was going to be. Any experience is good experience and I still stand by this. This year I photographed my first Woodland Wedding and I absolutely loved it! I have shot a few ‘outdoor weddings’ where the wedding breakfast was a picnic or a hog roast but not one day that was entirely outside!

The weather was perfect and incredibly hot which made the day absolutely perfect (however I still think the day would have been just as perfect if it was raining – there was nothing that was going to ruin Craig and Shani’s day!)

Being a ‘country girl’ from Norfolk being involved in an outdoor wedding has 100% made me love my job and if you are looking to get married outside amongst the Norfolk/ Suffolk countryside DO IT! (And have me as your photographer – pretty please!) There is nothing more beautiful! Take advantage of the wonderful county we live in!

I CONQUERED MY FEAR OF COUPLE PHOTOGRAPHY!

If you have been looking at my site and have seen that I offer ‘couple photography-sessions’ I can 99% guess what you are thinking!

I am very much a natural photographer when it comes to people and the thought of photographing ‘in love’ couples felt so alien and un-natural as the love you show for each other is very much a private emotion.

For this reason I have tried to treat my couple sessions exactly the same as my weddings – a documentary approach with very little direction. I have become more and more confident as many of my 2017 brides and grooms have opted for a couple photo-session on order to get comfortable in front of the camera before their big day (and strangely enough it works!)

I absolutely love going out for a walk and treating the session as a day out rather than sitting in front of the camera the entire time! Natural approach = natural photos! It has been a fab way to get to know my future brides and grooms too which has lead to me feeling very excited for their big day(s)!

I HAVE HAD LOTS OF PRACTISE PHOTOGRAPHING KIDS, BABIES AND ANIMALS

I have loved every single lifestyle shoot I have photographed this year. Lots of people say to me “Once your weddings kick off you may find you won’t have time or won’t want to bother with the family photo shoots.” I will ALWAYS say yes to a family shoot if I am free! I feel so lucky to be able to capture moments that you and generations to come will look at for the rest of your life (just like a wedding!)

My family have always photographed me and my siblings growing up and those moments captured mean so much to me as its a part of who I am! For me to have that role to play in your lives is a huge responsibility and an honour! I’ve loved going out for walks, being invited into peoples homes and just getting to know everyone!

I personally feel as though the lifestyle photography is the most rewarding area of my job – especially when children and animals are involved as when I do get a good shot (after lots of shyness, running around and simply just not playing ball) I know I have achieved something!

I GOT MY LOVELY LITTLE CAR AND GOT HER SIGN WRITTEN!

I am so, so fortunate to have such supportive friends and family!

Back in March (Easter time to be exact) I got my lovely little ivory car! I am not a car person and my car knowledge is appalling but I was set on a white/ off white little car so that I could one day have my logo on it so that when I turn up to your wedding I look vaguely professional! 😉 My very lovely Dad helped me along the way and I have been loving my little mode of transport and feel so good turning up on my clients doorsteps!

One of my very best friends and her family have been some of the most supportive people in my life regarding my business. Her father owns a car business in Beccles and very kindly helped me source a sign writing company to get my car branded – little did I know that he was going to sort everything out and have my car wrapped for me as a present!! (Such a lovely thing for him to do for me!)

I drove up on the forecourt in his little courtesy car to see my car looking all shiny and sleek with my logo and company details looking so professional – I nearly cried! We decided to go with a darker colour as the pink of my logo was not going to show up against the white of the car.

I am so, so chuffed and feel like the wheels are well and truly in motion – literally!

If you are looking for a Suffolk based card dealer please have a look at Binks of Beccles’ site! Fab, quality cars and such lovely customer service!

I HAVE MET SO MANY LOVELY & TALENTED
WEDDING SUPPLIERS!

Whilst studying at Uni I had to organise and source creatives for styled shoots. After a year of not picking up my camera after graduating (simply because university had made photography feel very much a chore rather than an enjoyment) I have been involved in many styled shoots this year that I have absolutely loved every single one as they have been my style and well thought through!

Its lovely to get creative and catch up with fellow wedding suppliers such as hair stylists, make up artists and clothing stylists. I love the shoots as its very much a time where I and everyone else can just relax and enjoy what we do without pressure!

I have loved working with you all and consider everyone in the wedding industry who I have collaborated with and bounce ideas off, very valuable friends that I cannot wait to work with again in 2017.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF THE WEDDING/ NON-WEDDING GUYS I HAVE WORKED ALONGSIDE FOR STYLED SHOOTS!

I HAVE WORKED ALONGSIDE SOME FAB FELLOW
WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS

There are so many wedding photographers out there and the industry can sometimes feel a little intimidating.  So when I meet a fellow wedding photographer who is truly genuine and full of nothing but photography chat and hints and tips it is always so refreshing.

This year I have met and worked with Joshua Charnock (Joshua Patrick Photography) and Georgia Ainley (Georgia Rachael Ainley Photography) both are 1) absolutely fab photographers and 2) two of the most genuine and lovely people I have met!

I loved meeting and chatting with these guys as I am such a worrier and am terrible when it comes to having faith in myself and work so it is the best feeling when you realise you are not the only one with the same thoughts and worries! (Its also quite nice to have a compliment from time to time! ;))

Next year I am going to aim to stop worrying about ‘how good’ every photographer in the area is and actually join in with the photographers breakfast get togethers! Josh and Georgia have proved that there are genuine people out there who yes, are competitors in a way but do not have to be competitive. In fact we all bounce ideas off of one another and recommend each other when we get an enquiry for a date that we are already booked for!

HAPYY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF MY
PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE CLIENTS, FRIENDS, FAMILIES, COLLEAGUES!
MAKE IT A GOOD ONE AND I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU ALL ON THE OTHER SIDE!

A STYLED SHOOT

A WOODLAND, EARTHY WEDDING SHOOT FEATURING A TALENTED
TEAM OF NORFOLK & LONDON BASED WEDDING SUPPLIERS

At University I spent 3 years following my love for fashion and beauty photography which resulted in having to organise shoots consisting of a concept, location/ studio, model(s), hair stylist, make up artist, fashion designer and clothing stylist. Unfortunately, due to the high demand for constant work I felt as though every shoot I organised was rushed and not thought through enough in order for it to be a success. Shooting around 3 times a week resulted in huge amounts of stress and ‘rushed’ work. I absolutely loved a shoot that was well organised and the images reflected my vision however I have not organised a ‘styled’ shoot since… until now.

Due to the Wedding Season now starting to quieten down I am always looking for photography techniques and ideas to get me inspired – (this is where Pinterest comes in!) Since photographing weddings I have fallen in love with outdoor ceremonies. Whether this is a Woodland Wedding, Festival Wedding, Garden Wedding or even a  Farm Wedding – you name an outdoor venue I will be 100% excited. I just love anything that is DIFFERENT anything where my Brides and Grooms can put their stamp on it and create a day that reflects THEM and not conform to your standard, stereotypical day. Yes, we live in England and yes it may rain but that is the thrill!

I am a country girl and love the fresh air and open outdoors. I have always wanted to shoot a ‘styled’ shoot where both the outdoors and weddings combine. I began searching under the category of ‘earthy weddings’ and ‘english rose’ and found so many absolutely beautiful images that just made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up!

After weeks of swooning over so many beautiful photos I finally felt totally and utterly inspired to organise a ‘styled’ shoot representing all things outdoors; beautiful, dainty and unique. I had seen some gorgeous and different wedding suppliers via ‘The Most Curious Wedding Fair.’ One supplier really caught my eye – a collection of gorgeous, hand drawn, linen animal masks designed by London based designer  ‘Animalesque.’  I popped Sara (the designer) an email asking to borrow the masks for the shoot I was planning and she said yes (hooray!) and a shoot was in motion. Strangely enough (I think it was fate) a few days after planning the shoot I was approached by a lady called Katy Rayner (Bracken and Twine Floristry) enquiring if I organise styled shoots. I had a look at Katy’s Facebook page and just fell-in-love. If you are looking for a real unique, English, artistic bouquet you NEED to check this talented lady out. Her style is EVERYTHING! I informed her about the ‘Earthy styled’ shoot I was planning straight away as her and her designs fitted in with the theme so well – so she designed a gorgeous hair circlet and huge woodland bouquet. I then contacted the lovely Kate (By Kate Elizabeth) a fab stylist who I have worked with over the past couple of years and she recruited GORGEOUS models Alisha Whitworth and Kate Winser. I then saw that the very lovely Gemma Holiday (Gemma Holiday Hair Stylist) was home from America and she recruited seriously talented Missy (Melissa Abel Make Up Artist) AND A TEAM WAS BORN!

As always, when you have a brilliant plan nothing ever goes smoothly! We had issues with Mr. Postman resulting in masks not arriving on time, model sickness (and then Kate Winser stepped in), traffic jams, losing keys – you name it, it happened (bar the camera going wrong thank goodness!)

Due to not being able to shoot the masks the most of the team were able to meet again the following day so that we could re-shoot so that the masks were featured! Life savers!

Location wise we shot at the very beautiful Wensum Park, Norwich which was just perfect and incorporated everything from the mood board with over grown, woodland areas along with marble walls and gorgeous lakes and old stone steps. The dresses were sourced from the Big C Cancer Charity (Norwich) and were so beautiful and so fit for the purpose of this very English styled shoot – the detailing and the sleeves were just fantastic!

I was so pleased to be able to feature Sara’s (Animalesque) hand made, bespoke masks. The masks themselves are nothing like anything I have ever seen before and gave me such a nostalgic feeling when I saw them (they reminded me so much of Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit.) I was super eager to photograph the set of bespoke animal masks as I would so love for my Brides and Grooms to feature something similar (or the same!) for when it comes to photo opportunities and also simply having FUN at their weddings! The masks would suit many of my outdoor wedding bookings and would really aid in getting my Brides/ Grooms/ Guests in getting relaxed in front of the camera! Sara also designs special childrens masks that would be SO lovely on a little page boy or flower girl (hint hint 2017/ 2018 brides and grooms!) I was so excited to photograph Sara’s incredible designs and was more excited when I finally got my hands on them (a day late thank you to Mr. Postman!) and saw for myself the amount of detail and hard work that goes into every single one – it was incredible. the beaded work, the feathers and the sketch like print of the animals onto the material just worked so well together!

THE TEAM

Melissa Abel

Melissa Abel Make Up Artist's approach on the day!

“My brief for Alisha was for her to look natural to complement the earthy tones of the shoot. I love Groundwork by MAC so this was my first choice for the eye base. On the lid I also used a selection of soft browns focusing the deeper shades closer to the lash line and graduating the colours upwards blending with my trusty #217 brush. I used Teddy also by MAC under the eye blending with a pencil brush to soften the line. Alisha’s beautiful skin was perfected with Cliniques beyond perfecting foundation which has become a real favourite of mine this season. I mixed some shades from my lip pallet to create a natural matt lip to compliment the skin and eyes.

I wanted Kate’s makeup to work with Alisha’s look however be individual to her and still compliment the shoot theme. I used a similar process on the skin and eyes omitting the deeper shadow tones and eyeliner giving a lighter feel. The focus for Kate was a strong berry lip mixed again from my lip pallet.

Day two I found myself setting up a make studio by the side of a road, we had great fun creating another soft look for Alisha this time my star product was rose pout matt lipstick by Illamasqua. Perfect for a natural yet madeup look.”
