Suzanne & Jamie | Back To The Garden

Wedding Reception & 40th Birthday Party

Suzanne and Jamie are the most down to earth couple you could meet. I met them a few months before the party, at their home in Fakenham to discuss their plans. They tied the knot in Las Vegas and wanted to celebrate by hosting a Vegas themed party with family and friends back home. They decided to coincide their wedding reception with Jamie’s 40th birthday, at a large rustic barn in Norfolk, and what better location than Back To The Garden!

The day came round very quickly and I arrived a little while before the party to capture the venue, Vegas themed decorations and cake, which all looked absolutely fantastic! The second barn was complete with games from Kings and Queens Casino, such as black jack and roulette. After capturing these in detail, I headed back inside to photograph the guests arriving. Suzanne and Jamie were dressed to the nines, with Suzanne rocking a gorgeous white 50’s swing dress and her hair in a matching up-do by the incredibly talented Flamingo Amy! Jamie wore a white shirt and black waistcoat and together they looked perfect!

As the guests arrived, they headed over to the bar for a drink and were entertained by music from the brilliant band, The Lovin’ Handful who knew exactly how to get everyone up on the dance floor! I spilt my time between the main barn where the dancing was taking place and the second barn, where the casino games were in full swing. The reactions were priceless, especially when Suzanne was on a winning streak!

Shortly after, the catering staff brought out some American style food. Including hot dogs with mustard and ketchup, which were of course accompanied with fries! Afterwards they enjoyed wedding cake and ice cream. The band played several sets, mixing it up with a Dj in between. It was a warm September evening, so the guests were able to sit outside, under candlelight. Jamie and Suzanne had an informal first dance and were later joined on the dance floor by their family and friends. There were some entertaining party moves, a bubbly atmosphere and a great night was had by all!
