Ana Maria & David at Norfolk Mead


A warm and sunny late September Saturday saw me heading to Norfolk Mead to capture the Wedding of Ana Maria and David. Having met up with these two lovebirds for a pre wedding chat I was immediately taken in by David’s charm and Ana’s kindness and praise for my work she has seen –  no pressure then!

Arriving at the hotel I found Ana’s wedding party drinking coffee and preparations were in full swing…. hair, make up and baby feeding aplenty. Everyone was smiling, and laughing – a very pleasant atmosphere indeed. After a much needed coffee I set about my work, well I say work, it doesn’t feel like work when you love what you do.

David made his grand entrance in a vintage Jaguar, a thing of beauty that car! And so the ceremony began. Ana, her dad and the bridesmaids made the long walk down Norfolk Mead’s path in full view of David and wedding guests. As Ana made her way down the aisle, I had tears in my eyes and spying David’s tears too I hastily composed myself.

The ceremony was full of emotion and much humour, one of the readings being The Beatles When I’m Sixty Four – a touch of class I thought. With the ceremony over it was time for drinks, canapés and photos taken by Simon Watson. Speeches followed, cake cutting, first dance and partying.

I would like to thank Ana Maria and David for choosing me to capture their wedding day.

“Oh Pete! Absolutely brilliant!!! You are a genius! It’s surpassed all of our expectations! It’s beautiful, poignant, artistic, just wonderful. A lovely reminder of our day! Thank you so much.

Pete has delivered an absolutely wonderful video that captured our recent wedding. He was incredibly discreet and demonstrated pure professionalism. A true gent who collaborated with our photographer to make sure we do not just have a beautiful picture album but also a beautifully shot video of our special day.

I would highly recommend his service but also the idea of having a video as I was amazed at how much we missed and how much of the poignant detail is lost during the big day as you just cannot be everywhere at once. I shed a few tears when we watched it back and I am so relieved to have Pete’s video as a constant reminder.

Thank you so much for all your work, for being such a nice guy and for this we are eternally grateful.”
