Ely Cathedral Wedding Photography

Sarah and Pat had already had one fabulous wedding in Las Vegas when I provided their Ely Cathedral wedding photography for a second celebration. I absolutely loved photographing this great couple in such stunning surroundings as Ely Cathedral and I turned up at least an hour early just to enjoy capturing a myriad of scene setting shots and architectural details, to add to the pictures from the day.

Sarah got ready in the new hotel, The Poet House, just a short walk across the green. She was joined by her very friendly and helpful bridesmaids to help her get ready before Sarah’s father arrived to walk her over to the Cathedral. It was a very special moment as father and daughter came into view of Pat, who was waiting for her at the grand doors of the entrance, and he saw her in the surprise and absolutely stunning ethereal wedding dress designed by Terry Fox from Bury St Edmunds.

There was a simple private blessing in the grand chancel. Photography here was limited by the vicar’s restrictions and the extremely low light but I made good use of the different angles I could access.

After a quick portrait session around the grounds of Ely Cathedral, Sarah and Pat joined their family and friends at The Old Fire Engine restaurant for some welcome champagne before the speeches and dinner.

I left as the very cool guys from the Gourmet Jazz Trio were preparing to entertain the wedding party through the rest of the evening. Congratulations to Sarah and Pat – really great day!

Reviews of Suffolk Wedding Photographers

 

Some of the very lovely comments sent through to me for the 2013 Wedding Season

It is always nice and much more meaningful to be highly recommended as one of Suffolk’s top wedding photographers in the ‘Client based’ reviews of Suffolk Wedding photographers, – but my work has its own rewards every week in that I absolutely love my job …

It is always nice to be appreciated though and so it is lovely when clients send me messages to describe their experience of thier Suffolk wedding photography service ….

Here are just a few of the lovely messages sent personally to me as reviews for the Suffolk Wedding Photographer of the Year 2013 ‘supplier comments’ website:

 

You were so brilliant, the photography was excellent and we are thrilled with our photos. You were so helpful and a calming influence throughout the time we spent with you. We would definitely recommend you to anyone.

We cannot recommend Justine enough. We were very clear about the vision we wanted for our wedding photography and she absolutely captured what we wanted. In fact she delivered images that were far better than I could have imagined. She was excellent the whole way through the process.

Justine was the consummate professional. The photographs are gorgeous. Justine was able to blend into the background so that she got some brilliant shots of people just enjoying themselves. I would not hesitate to recommend Justine for any of my friends -she truly is a safe pair of hands.

Justine was really friendly and fitted in so well on the day as several of our friends commented. The finished photos were really lovely.

Justine was fantastic! She photographed us in such a non-intrusive manner and managed to get so many lovely photos of all our family and friends, with amazing ones of peoples natural laughter/emotions. The photos capture the whole day so well and really tell a story. She is a truly amazing photographer!

“Her website was interesting and detailed and Justine’s style of capturing specific moments of the day through out the wedding album is very creative. She is fantastic to work with being very professional and friendly at all times. We are extremely happy with our photos and album.

Justine understood exactly what my husband and I wanted from our wedding photos. She fitted in effortlessly to our day and produced a wonderful set of photos that we will treasure. She was also very understanding of our demanding families on the day! I would book her again in an instant.

Justine was brilliant on the day and kindly sent us three complimentary printed photos after the event. My mother was particularly happy with her gift set of her choice of 3 photos printed and delivered.

Justine was very friendly and made us all feel relaxed. The photos capture the day perfectly.

We have had numerous comments about how amazing our photos are. We are amazed by the quality of them. Justine worked like a trooper on the day, capturing everything that we had asked for. Her blog is fantastic and her website is perfect for choosing the photos.

Justine was fantastically organised on the day and really helped everything run smoothly. The photographs are stunning, we couldn’t have asked for any better, our friends and family have all said how amazing the photos are.

I was so pleased with my wedding photographs, they were better than I could possibly have imagined. I have had so many friends disappointed with their photo’s, so I spent time an enormous time looking into potential local photographers and I was not disappointed.

Justine photographed the weddings of both my sister and myself within six weeks of each other at our family home. On both occasions she did a really wonderful job capturing all the key moments of the day, with so many very lovely, natural images, while at the same time maintaining a very discreet presence

Justine has really made the lasting visualisation of our special 2 day wedding amazing. She has captured every essence of the event, the emotion, laughter and love. Justine is warm, funny and a delight to work with. She works so subtly, that the pictures encapsulated every wonderful moment of our day!!

Justine covered our wedding and really captured the happiness of the day. All of our friends have commented on the high quality of the work and her natural photographic style.

Justine really understood how we wanted our wedding photos. We loved her style of natural looking photos and this meant we had lots of lovely shots from the wedding. She

was very patient with us and enabled us to relax for the whole day. We are very pleased with our photos and would recommend her to anyone who asked us.

Justine Ferrari  produces the most beautiful pictures. She really does  have an artistic eye. She  understands  and interprets what you want well. So many of our guests complimented her ability to blend in, take lots of natural shots and also  capture the entire day.  our pictures definitely tell a story of our day.”Justine on first impression was smiling, happy to meet me and hear all ideas for the day, (just like it was her first wedding that she’d ever heard about) which I feel is very important, as for each individual bride, it is your unique, special day, and you don’t want it to be shadowed by others.x”“Words just cannot describe what a wonderful service Justine provided throughout – fromthe very first email through to the meetings, right to the end product Justine was just superb. She has a wonderful eye, the photographs of our day surpassed anything we imagined, capturing every precious moment”.

Justine is hugely professional, skillfully and beautifully managing everything from initial booking and instructions to organising riotous guests and delivering perfect prints. Her great expertise meant we could enjoy our day knowing that our photos would be beautiful and exactly what we wanted.

Justine is a brilliant photographer, our pictures are amazing and we are overjoyed with them. After looking at many, many photographers around East Anglia, we could not find anyone that compared to her standard and we were so pleased that she could do our wedding!

Could not be happier with the photographs from our day. Really captured the essence of everything and our quirkiness .Worked around us and accommodated all of our ideas while ensuring every ‘traditional’ photo was captured. Never intrusive; patient and adaptable.

Fantastic photographer – Justine really listens to what you want from your day and what you want from your photographer. The pictures were excellent and I was very pleased

Justine was extremely professional ,& very pleased with our results. While many photographers ask for over an hour with the photographer for couple shots, Justine was able to do this brilliantly in 15mins, with fantastic results, leaving us to party and celebrate which was key for us! A true pro!

Justine is very professional and took great pride in capturing our day as we wanted. We would recommend her to anyone and were thrilled with the photos

“Having received our images on DVD and also our beautiful wedding album we would wholeheartedly recommend Justine to anyone looking for the perfect wedding photographer. She made us feel at ease at all times and it’s impossible to put a monetary value on the results!”

 “Justine’s work is amazing. She listened to what we wanted and captured our day in just the way we wanted. Both Justine and her assistant Oliver, were great on the day. They captured what was needed without taking us away from our guests for long periods. We were really pleased with the end results.”

 

 

Why They Booked (in random order)

 “I saw her modern looking website and I fell in love with her style of images. they seemed to capture such emotion and were so natural and that’s what we love d about them. When we went to meet Justine, she was so friendly and welcoming and really took the time to get to know us and what we wanted from our wedding photos. We were so impressed by the sample albums she showed us and knew she was the person we wanted photographing our wedding. So we didn’t even look at any other photographers, the decision was made!

She did an amazing engagement photo shoot of us before the wedding day on Mersea beach where we both are from and we were so impressed with them, it was so difficult to choose as we had so many favourites. She really has gone beyond our expectations with our final wedding photographs, everyone of our friends and family have commented on how amazing the images areand also how professional but warm and friendly Justine was with everyone she was photographing on the day and we are so pleased with the images and so so so pleased we chose Justine!”

 We loved her style and ability to capture natural moments throughout the day.

 Wonderful reportage style; very elegan tphotos; engaging well designed website; ability to portray ethos through her images. Friendly and attentive. I actually couldn’t recommend her more emphatically.

 After speaking to a few photographers, Justine Ferrari stuck out from others for us by a mile!! She was very friendly, she had the edge that we wanted for our photos and was very quick to respond to any correspondence which in planning anything is key!! We liked her website which was very informative and a great first impression of her style. Everything Justine Ferrari Photography does -be it a letter, website – to the photos arriving, everything just has that  really nice touch. Was impressed from the start, just couldn’t not book her.

 She was one of our venues preferred photographers, which was really important as she knew the venue inside out, where to get the best shots etc. She came across very professionally and very importantly didn’t ask for 2×45 min slots with us for couple shots. She was able to do these in a much shorter time frame with amazing results. We loved her other work and she presented herself (and was!) in an extremely professional way.

 Recommendation for Justine from facebook

 A friend and the wedding venue recommended her.Style of photographs.

All of the photos on Justine’s website were stunning and I trusted that Justine could make me, my husband and our families look our best.Her classic style is timeless and her price was very reasonable. She had the experienceof hundreds of  previous weddings,so I felt that I could trust her and not have to worry about how the photos would turn out.

 I looked at many, and I found her Website and style of photography the most appealing from professional to creative.

 We liked the pictures on her website of previous clients.

She is modern, up to date, takes beautiful natural pictures and has an excellent eputation.

 Justine was very professional and from the first time we met Justine,  she judged exactly how we wanted our photos to be, natural and fun.

 We loved the photos of other weddings she has taken and felt completely at ease with her.

 We booked Justine because we could see from her website that her work was streets ahead of the competition.

 She was recommended by the venue as were some other photographers. However, Justine’s style and quality of work was exactly what we were looking for.

 Because I loved her work and thought that she would be the best person to capture our special day.

 She had previously worked on the wedding of the daughter of another family in the village and I loved the photos on her blog, especially the fact that she had managed to get great results despite very bad weather!

 I saw her blog page, saw her portfolio and was good with communicating, especially when I as the bride may have been freaking out. She remained calm and explained fully and confidently that the day would be amazing, and she really captured that.x

 Amazing photos and amazing service!

 Recommended by a friend and her photos (on her website) matched our tastes perfectly….Natural.

 We wanted a photographer with a relaxed ‘reportage’ style but also, importantly, a photographer that  could capture natural images and handle colour well. We encountered many photographers that relied on over stylised images and were excited to find Justine’s website and blog and knew instantly that she could capture our day in the way we wanted.

She completely understood the vision we had of our wedding. She listened to everything we said and what type of photos we did and didn’t like. The quality of her photos that she showed us were amazing and very creative. We were extremely happy with our photos as she caught the atmosphere of the day.

 Due to our friends’ recommendation and the quality of photographs of other people’s weddings that we had seen on Justine’s blog.

 For her timeless and natural style.

 The quality of the photos on her website, and her very warm welcome when we first met.

 Photographs were very natural and bright. As a photographer, she really used the camera to create all the visual effects rather than post photographic processing.

Long Melford Suffolk Church Wedding

James and Lauren put on a spectacular day at their Long Melford Suffolk church wedding for their family and friends in late September.

I started the photographic coverage at the historic and impressive Long Melford church, A beautiful ceremony was followed by a reception at Lauren’s family home nearby. Guests were treated to a wonderful setting with a backdrop of the family farmhouse and lake and with a full orchestra in the background to accompany the delicious proper English tea. Lauren had spent many years playing with the invited orchestra and this led to some of the wonderful surprises for the guests during the afternoon … these included the biggest inflatable slide I have ever seen, an airshow display overhead and finally a surprise appearance of the bride playing a solo on her saxophone and several reindeer!

Haughley Park Barn Wedding

Lucy and Richard held their lovely Haughley Park Barn wedding in October. After all the torrential floods and gales we have been having, I was worried that their day might be affected by the elements. They were in fact very lucky with a break in the weather just at the right moments – but too be honest, Lucy had such a warm and sunny personality, it wouldn’t have mattered a jot what the weather did!

The family had already enjoyed a few days at the charming little house behind the Barn at Haughley Park and this made the perfect start to the wedding celebrations. Lucy got ready with her bridesmaids and enchanting little flower girl and page boy all helping. She made the most beautiful bride and her choices of flowers in pinks, creams and greens complemented her delicate English colouring.

Civil Partnership Suffolk Ceremony

You couldn’t ask for nicer clients than Monica and Gemma who held their civil partnership Suffolk ceremony at Smeetham Hall Barn in September. The day was filled with joy, friendship, totally great fun guests and a few surprises …. the first being the magical mystery route that the red London bus took to get everyone to the venue!

The brief that I was given for the day was to capture emotion, friendship and the quirky fun filled day the couple had planned and I know that both Monica and Gemma more than fulfilled their dreams. They had both carefully thought through the different elements of the day but it was their own wonderfully warm and generous natures and very welcoming families that really made this one of my favourite weddings of 2013.
