Alice + Duck



These two lovely people should have been married during the pandemic but postponed their wedding.  Once they were able to get a date with Celebrate in Norfolk they snuck away and had a surprise ceremony.  During planning, we needed to find a venue for these two to have a mini shoot with me and Tim Stephenson to mark the day.

Up stepped the gorgeous Swanton Morley House.  A lovely wedding venue in mid-Norfolk, Swanton Morley House has a great mix of places to shoot some couples film and was perfect for these two!

Surprise Guest

Once Alice and Duck had arrived we headed into the wooded area.  Little did the couple know that there was a surprise waiting for them.  As they walked around the corner they were met by a dinosaur.  Alice is well known for being a huge Jurassic Park fan.  Enter sister Jess in a dinosaur suit.

Seeing the laughter and tears from these two at the surprise was absolutely brilliant!  Without doubt one of the highlights of the year!

I filmed Jess’ wedding to Lewi at Hunters Hall.  Watch the film.

A Walk Around Swanton Morley House

As I have already said.  Swanton Morley House is a great wedding venue with a variety of places to film.  We had these two all to ourselves and took a lovely walk.  With the wooded areas through to the grasslands, Alice and Duck completely smashed it.

They even brought with them some smoke bombs.  Smoke bombs are always fun and normally it’s a case of white or a bright colour.  Not for these guys.  Black and purple smoke was the order of the day and it definitely was worth it!

I am so excited to film Alice and Duck’s big wedding celebration when the time comes.  I know they’re going to be awesome!
