Saturday 26th January 2019 - St. Peter's Brewery

Katie and James are two of the most beautiful people I have ever met, not only that, but they are my friends. I was lucky enough to be asked to capture their special day for them and I am so happy that I got the opportunity.

Getting ready…

Katie and her bridesmaids got ready at home and Katie had her make-up done by her niece, up-and-coming make-up artist, Aimee Gibbs. Mum made bacon sarnies for everyone (once Katie’s brother got to grips with the new grill), and the vibe was chilled and relaxed. Katie and James’ daughter Eloise spent the morning excitedly showing me her ‘wedding dress’ and swishing and twirling in it until she was dizzy.

The venue…

The ceremony took place at St. Peter’s Brewery in Bungay, an incredible building that dates back as far as 1280 and was extended in 1539 using ‘architectural salvage’ from Flixton Priory. Not only that, but they also brew incredible beer.

The place was absolutely perfect, from the dark wood panelling, to the giant fireplaces and the London style pub. Katie and James had a small reveal prior to the ceremony where James saw that Katie was actually wearing a proper wedding dress, something that was not at all planned and of which James had no idea. It got emotional.

The ceremony…

Katie was given away by her father in the ceremony room and the rings were delivered by their son Jensen. Katie’s bridesmaids consisted of her nieces Aimee and Poppy, sister Susie, best friend Jenna and daughter, Eloise.

All in all, the day was incredible. The laughter, the tears, the absolute joy of it all was just amazing to be part of. Plus, the gargantuan pork pie and cheese wheel wedding cake was possibly the best thing I’ve ever seen at a wedding.

Mr & Mrs Anderson-Cousins; you guys rock.
