Those who know me and my style will know that I am completely in love with Norfolk and the many woodlands, beaches, parks and gardens that the beautiful county has to offer! When myself and Amie began talking about her and Steven’s Norfolk wedding she explained that they both live in Shoreditch and that they would love to have a pre-wedding/ couple shoot in the big smoke so that they can have a variety of contrasting images of them both. Initially, I was feeling EXTREMELY out of my comfort zone and when I boarded the train I was slightly on the apprehensive side as I had no idea what to expect!
I stepped out of the station to a rainy street and was greeted by a huge hug by Steven who had walked from their flat to meet me to help me navigate to the café. I could tell by our email conversations how lovely Amie was and she too dished out the biggest hug – I felt as though I had known these two for years! Needless to say that the nerves soon faded and after a much-needed cup of tea and breakfast we then headed out to scout out some locations for photos! I could not believe how many cool, funky and all-in-all photogenic backdrops we came across! We began the shoot by using graffitied walls for a pop of colour, graphic shapes and striking patterns with the first design matching the blue of Amie’s turtleneck jumper (I was winning at life!) Not only did we manage to find graffitied walls, Steven and Amie showed me around their hometown and we shot on a rooftop, bar, by a beautiful mosaic wall, traditional London terrace houses for a classic Love Actually look and then we found a very unusual but insane backdrop that consisted of multiple coloured ribbons that had been entwined together for a random triangualr pattern!
