Wedding at Norwood Park
Wedding at Norwood Park – a transatlantic romance

When you leave a wedding and a dance floor full of guests envelope you in a giant group hug and proceeds to cheer and clap you as you leave, you know it’s been a good day! You know when you shoot one of those weddings that just makes your heart sing, well that was Cat & Sam’s amazing wedding at Norwood Park. Cat & Sam are two of those very special people who make a room just light up, ever since I met them for their engagement session last year I couldn’t wait to photograph these two wonderfully warm and lovely people get married. Working with them was like working with two friends and Lucy and I still talk about their day months later.

Cat & Sam live in LA but chose to come to the UK to a venue near to Sam’s home town to get married (I’m so glad they did!) Cat wanted something quintessially English for their UK wedding, and you can’t get more English than the lovely stately home of Norwood Park. They injected some old fashioned English romance into the décor with old teapots filled with roses and old books on the tables.Cat & Sam had two ceremonies; the first (the official and legal ceremony) in the drawing room of the house, followed by a mixed faith blessing outside in the beautiful gardens of Norwood House. I really enjoyed the mixed faith blessing, it had some beautiful humanist elements mixed with some religious aspects to create a truly personal and meaningful blessing (there wasn’t a dry eye in the house!).

They were lucky enough to be able to use the beautiful drawing room at Norwood for their intimate wedding breakfast which added to the old English charm. I loved their choice of dining on their own little sweet heart table (something I don’t see very often) it really adds a touch of romance to the wedding breakfast and offers some much needed time together. The atmosphere at this wedding was tonic for the soul, it was uplifting and wonderful and we put it down solely to the overwhelming feeling of love between these two fab people. I am sad that I wasn’t able to make it over to LA to shoot the second stage of Cat & Sam’s wedding celebration, I have no doubt that it was a wonderful as this one.
