Katie and David were married in the grounds of Hockering House, a beautiful private country house set in extensive parkland right in the heart of the Norfolk countryside but just 15 minutes from Norwich. This was my first time photographing a wedding at Hockering House and what a treat it was. What a fabulous place to get married, somewhere you can truly create your perfect wedding day. And the owners Sam and Oliver will be with you every step of the way. Sam was amazing on the day, always in the right place at the right time and nothing was too much trouble.
Hockering House was also awarded Silver in the venue category in the Bridebook awards this year (2019)! Not only that but the Telegraph included Hockering House as one of the best places to get married in the UK. One of only three venues listed in the East of England!
Katie and David had chosen to get married on the lawn in front on the house but unfortunately the weather wasn’t on our side that day. But that didn’t stop the ceremony looking beautiful. The chairs had been moved into the marquee and the Floral hoop that was planned to be outside had been created inside by the very talented Libby Ferris Flowers. Making the perfect backdrop for Katie and David’s vows. Katie arrived with her Bridesmaids and dad and made their way across the lawn (with brollies!) to the marquee.
After the beautiful ceremony, Katie, David and some of their immediate family hopped in a couple of land rovers and made their way back to the house to complete the legal part of the ceremony (duo ceremony). They then headed outside onto the lawn and into the sunshine (at last!) to be greeted by their guests.
Later in the evening the Willowspin Ceilidh band started playing, which got a lot of the guests up and dancing. I would highly recommend them, you’ll see from the photos that everyone who joined in loved it!
