Jo & James' Coastal Country Wedding - Cley Next The Sea

What Royal wedding? This was the one we were more interested in, right? Jo and James had a better idea - A countryside/seaside themed wedding on the Norfolk Coast with the couples favourite people staying with them at Barn Drift in Holt. After their beautiful outdoor ceremony in front of everyone, they went indoors to say their contracting words in front of parents and registrars in an emotional private moment. The New Mr & Mrs Godfrey celebrated their marriage over a ploughmans lunch with champagne toasts, and later - with an evening of fish & chips and dancing.
Jo & James said from the start that they were happy to take a little extra time for the perfect couples photos at Cley beach nearby. They only shared the beach that day with a few fishermen, despite the baking sunshine and perfect paddling conditions.

And as stunning sunsets were guaranteed every day of the week this summer, we had no problem getting our glow on during the golden hour before the drinks really got flowing and the surprise from best friends began. I’ll let the photographs fill you in on the rest, don’t forget to check out Jo & James’ recommended suppliers at the end!
