Helen and Tim’s wedding at the lovely Manor Mews wedding venue in Tatterset, Kings Lynn set off a flurry of final summer’s weddings with a bang!
Both teachers, living and working in Bury St. Edmunds but from Norfolk, it was only natural for them to have their wedding in their home County with all their friends and family. Manor Mews is right on their family doorstep and was a natural wedding venue choice for them.
Helen, a secondary school art teacher took DIY weddings to a whole new level with theirs. She’d painted and crafted everything herself, from the invites, the cricket themed table plan (Tim’s family play County Cricket) and a huge art piece that spanned the width of the barn. It looked sensational and the finish and quality was of the highest standard.
Late Summer weddings are often at the mercy of the weather and we had wind, rain and blazing sunshine forecast. One of the great features of Manor Mews is all the accommodation on site. This meant that I could go between bridal and groom prep to capture great moments of both of them. When we first met, Tim said he was having 6 grooms men. It sounded like a lot, but it was prefect! They were such good fun to work with and I didn’t realise how much fun they’d be in the evening!
The Great Barn at Manor Mews looked absolutely splendid decorated by all of Helen’s artwork and it created a wonderful backdrop for their wedding ceremony. The sun came out just in time for the canape’s and drinks on the lawn and stayed with us for a wonderful sunset as well.
After some hilarious speeches from Helen’s dad and Tim’s brother the evening kicked off with Festival Folk playing their first of three fantastic sets. The evening dancing was like no other and there was no let up either! From the first to the last song I couldn’t leave the dance floor. This was a pretty epic wedding to be a part of and here’s a glimpse into the main parts of their day.
