Fresh Looking Group Shots in Cambs

Group shots can often offer up several challenges.. In days gone by, photographers would typically line people up – one row standing, one row sitting and bang – that was the shot… thankfully, those times are largely gone and it’s enjoyable to use the space and furniture and create pleasing visuals that portray groups of people in a slightly more interesting way.

The Norfolk & Norwich Festival…what an opening night!

Friday evening Norwich played host to the opening reception of the fabulous Norfolk & Norwich Festival where French company Transe Express led crowds through the city in a whirlwind of music, dance & acrobatics as thousands gathered around the City Hall & The Forum, Norwich to celebrate this rather energetic and atmospheric opening….

Incredible how a festival such as the Norfolk & Norwich can uplift the area, bringing in wonderful art, culture and generally a feeling of happiness and brightness during what are becoming ever more tough times for the vulnerable in our society.

Enjoy the festival & celebrate our wonderful multicultural outlook.

The Inaugural Tour de Norfolk

Last Sunday saw the inaugural Tour de Norfolk cycle sportive from the Norfolk Show ground.
A bumper field of cyclists took to the roads of Norfolk for a wonderful day in the saddle on the Norfolk country lanes.

The event seemed to be a real hit, with the vast majority already looking forward to second version next year!

Riders donated at least £1 to Big C, which is celebrating its 35th anniversary, with many raising hundreds, if not thousands, of pounds through individual fund-raising.

Photographs from the event are available to view from the official Tour de Norfolk site  http://tourdenorfolk.co.uk/

Photographs from the gorgeous wedding of Jason & Kate in Essex

A few more photographs from the gorgeous wedding of Jason & Kate in Essex. I can’t believe how quick time moves by! It was two weeks today that I was shooting a very relaxed Kate at the hair studio, before she returned home to get prepared for the big day.

The wedding took place at the charming Orsett Church, while the reception was at the lovely High House barns in Purfleet – a real gem and a venue that had a gorgeous small garden, allowing me to take the lovely couple away from their guests for a while.

I hope you enjoy the images,as Jason & Kate have – bookings available for 2016 onward. Visit  www.byjulian.com for further information
