Norfolk has some unique wedding venues that offer stunning photographic possibilities. I always visit new venues just to get a feel of the place, however, no wedding assignment is ever the same.
Improvisation is a key ingredient for me and quite often some of my best shots are unplanned. I have compiled some photographs featuring recent venues I’ve covered. I will be adding to the list over the coming Months.

Close to the Norfolk showground, Best Western Brook Hotel is a modern 3-star hotel, easily accessible from the A47. It offers WiFi access and free on-site parking. It’s licensed to hold civil wedding ceremonies, surrounding gardens were ideal for the group wedding shots and there were brilliant areas inside the building also.
