Norfolk Wedding Film – Hollie & Dan

Norfolk Wedding Film – Shot on location at The Oak Grove Chapel, The Salhouse Lodge & The Southern Comfort Boat, Norfolk.
August 2013

The idea of filming on a boat fills me with dread. The idea of filming on a boat on the Norfolk Broads conjures up that Alan Partridge episode with the farmers (“Get Cliff Thorburn”). My initial fears were unfounded during Hollie & Dan’s wedding, as I managed to get both off & on the boat successfully & without dropping any equipment overboard.

The inclusion of the boat trip was a really thoughtful & unique idea that really added a special element to Hollie & Dan’s relaxed day. There was a quiet & homely warmth to this wedding, held in Hollie’s Dad’s Church (he did the giving away, rather than the service). With some wonderful live music giving it a contemporary feel before the guests exited for a reception, speeches & roast a few miles away.

I however, due to what can only be described as a ‘postcode malfunction’, proceeded to drive 30 miles in the opposite direction on the way to the reception. I noticed my error & managed to get to the CORRECT reception at the Salhouse Lodge, just in time for the speeches, but it was close.

Then we all made our way to the wonderfully grand ‘Southern Comfort’ boat, in Horning for a 3 hour trip around the broads. With the setting sun there were some great colours on display. I should also point out the great cakes on display, carefully baked and set up by many of the guests. I enjoyed one too many of those cakes.

This was an extremely well fed, homely and warm wedding, and I hope Hollie & Dan enjoy this film of their day.
