Jess and Tom’s Magical Wedding: A Day of Love and Wizardry!

Seckford Hall: Where The Day Began

As the day started, the Sun peeked through the ancient windows at Seckford Hall, casting a warm glow on the historic stone and oak panelled walls. Jess and Tom, our radiant couple, prepared for their magical day in the elegant rooms of this wonderful venue. Jess slipped into her silk gown, while Tom adjusted his bowtie with nervous excitement. Seckford's oak panelled drawing room with stags mounted on the wall made the perfect backdrop for a cool boys photo before they headed off for the ceremony.

Helmingham Hall: A Fairytale Ceremony

Helmingham Hall is a fairytale estate surrounded by lush gardens and was the perfect setting for Jess and Tom's beautiful outdoor ceremony which unfolded under a canopy of blue skies. Their love was palpable and the sun seemed to dance in celebration. After the ceremony, we took the newlyweds off for some portrait photos around the stunning gardens and the hall itself giving them both a moment of reflection during a very busy day.

A Marquee Fit for Wizards

The reception was nothing short of magical. The marquee was transformed into a Harry Potter meets Nightmare Before Christmas wonderland, complete with floating candles, sorting hat, and golden pumpkins. Jess and Tom entered to the theme of Hedwig’s Flight and the applause was thunderous.

The day's catering was looked after by Florentina Events. These guys are regarded as amongst the best in the business and served up a luxurious three course feast fit for any fine dining restaurant.

A Noble Steed Joins the Celebration

Just when we thought the day couldn’t get any more special, Jess’s majestic horse made a surprise appearance. This magnificent horse trotted gracefully alongside the bride, creating a scene straight out of a medieval romance. A memorable photo was Jess pushing Tom away from her and the horse...playfully letting him know his place!

Smoke Bombs and Sparklers: Capturing Magic

As the Sun dipped below the horizon, we whisked Jess and Tom away for some dramatic photos. We let smoke bombs envelop them aided gleefully by Tom's groomsmen! And just before we departed, we lit sparklers for a final burst of fun!
