Fairhaven Water Gardens Wedding, Boat Rides And A Beautiful Woodland Reception

Natalie and James were married at the stunning Fairhaven Water Gardens near South Walsham, Norfolk last September. Their day was incredibly unique, featuring their first look at St. Benet’s Abbey followed by a boat ride in the glorious sunshine together along the broads arriving in front of their guests, seated on straw bales in front of the water.

Their ceremony and reception was filled with personal touches as Natalie had made the decorations by hand and James is an amazing vocalist in his band who serenaded their guests during the evening’s entertainment.

I adore the array of colours the couple used and how their personality shone through every element of the day. The evening was spent playing games and sitting around a warming camp fire, whilst devouring crepes from local business.
