A few weeks ago I made the short trip down to Mulbarton just south of Norwich to photograph the wedding of Jessica and Grant who were married at Mulbarton church and then had their reception in the local infants school!
I must admit I was slightly apprehensive at the thought of a wedding reception taking place at an infants school (images of adults sitting on tiny chairs and trying to squeeze their knees under desks that were too low sprang to mind). The reality of it however was fabulous. A huge marquee had been erected on the school playing field (which thankfully wasn’t needed as the weather was beautiful) and lots of straw bales had been put out for guests to sit on. The wedding breakfast was incredibly informal and consisted of a traditional picnic in the sunshine accompanied by much fun and laughter.
Check out those shoes!

Guests walked back the short distance from the church to the reception across Mulbarton Common
Jessica, Grant and myself headed out onto the common for some pictures as the guests made their way back to the reception
Love the colour of the leaves early in the summer – really fresh and green
