Norbury Village Hall Wedding – Sam & Mark

Norbury village hall wedding

“Mark and I chose Lisa to photograph our big day because her photographs are very natural and they almost have a vintage film feel to them. I really like photographs that catch people off guard and Lisa’s do that so well. It was lovely to have Lisa with us on our special day, not only did she manage to capture it perfectly but she was so helpful when it came to timings and organisation (particularly outside the church when I wanted everyone to go to the hall to start the party!).  Lisa put us completely at ease. Well, I’m always at ease but Mark on the other hand doesn’t enjoy having his photograph taken but Lisa was so chatty and easy-going that he completely forgot to worry!  We absolutely loved our final pictures and especially liked the sneak peeks the day after our wedding, we were still on a high from our big day and those photographs just brought it all back and let us live in that little bubble for a while longer.  Thank you so much for capturing THE BEST DAY EVER in THE BEST WAY EVER! We would highly recommend Lisa to anyone thinking of hiring her!”

Sam and Mark got married in August at the lovely Norbury Village Hall, which is a beautiful village hall in Bishops Castle. They had their ceremony at St Etheldra’s Church, which is their the local church. It was the most beautiful wedding and even the rain didn’t dampen the day!

Bridal prep

Sam got ready at home with her bridesmaids and mom, and the atmosphere was full of excitement. The girls then hopped into a fancy wedding car to get to the ceremony.

Getting hitched

The ceremony was a beautiful service in a nearby church in Hyssington. During the ceremony they had a beautiful reading. It was such a personal and meaningful service. The church was beautiful and light with some gorgeous sunlight streaming in through the big windows right by the couple. The view from the back of church was beautiful! Their confetti shot after church was wonderful, they chose red and white confetti which matched the colours of their day perfectly, it really stood out!

The party

The reception was in the main hall at Norbury Village Hall. They chose the venue because they could have the place for the whole weekend and this meant they could spend more time decorating it. It was a woodland themed wedding, which I absolutely loved, it was obvious they’d put a lot of time and thought into their decorations. I love shooting village hall weddings because they’re always so relaxed. Norbury Village Hall was a really bright venue, I thought it looked more like a wedding venue than a typical village hall!

They a gin bar and canapes in the afternoon, and a live band in the evening. The gin bar went down an absolute storm, it was really quirky and everyone loved it! They decorated the venue with balloons and fairy lights, because it worked so well with the time of year. I thought their decorations looked brilliant and really worked with the venue that they’d chosen. I especially loved the big balloons that were on the tables as I felt they added something extra special to the overall look.

For dinner they had afternoon tea, which was absolutely delicious. I love afternoon tea at weddings, it’s such a great informal way of having food and it’s usually very filling so everyone’s happy. The first dance involved the wedding party getting on the dancefloor to get the dancing going, and they finished off the evening with shots all around.

The most memorable part of the day was the afternoon reception, because it was such a chilled out atmosphere and it was obvious everyone was having a great time.

The couple

Sam wore a gorgeous Rebecca Ingram wedding dress and Mark wore a very dapper Peter Posh suit and they looked so incredible. Sam’s flowers were a really striking red by Anne Wysall.

Sam and Mark’s wedding was so laid back and just the happiest occasion. Here’s their awesome village hall wedding!
