Helen and Patrick’s fun green train themed East Anglian Railway Museum wedding!

I'm really proud of these shots I took for Helen and Patrick at their train themed wedding. It was just such a lovely day (we lucked out with the weather big time!) and they're two really nice people to work for! The venue, the East Anglian Railway Museum was a real photographer's dream as well, I couldn't recommend the venue highly enough, it has lots of indoor and outdoor photogenic space! I started the day with Helen at their home, where she and her bridesmaids got ready into their grass green dresses. They then took a cute blue and beige vintage bus to the East Anglian Railway Museum where the ceremony was held in the gorgeous goods shed which is covered in vintage station hardware like clocks, signs, luggage weighing scales and actually an entire train carriage! Helen and Patrick had a very personal humanist ceremony where they placed letters from family and letters they wrote to each other in a box with bottles of wine to be opened on their one year anniversary. They also put pebbles on everyone's seat that they had collected from a beach that was meaningful to them, and they asked their guests to hold them throughout the ceremony before they would be used to decorate Helen and Patrick's home. Their awesome table plan was of course, train themed and the named and decorated each of the tables after board games like Pop Up Pirate and Settlers of Catan. Once of the best things about the museum is that the guests were able to take mini steam train rides, such fun!

They had their hog roast dinner in the tipi and the guests had smores as their favours which they roasted over the tipi fires. After dinner and speeches in the tipi, everyone went back into the ceremony goods shed for the dancing and party time! At the end of the night, fitting to the wedding theme everyone caught the last train from the museum platform back to their hotel. I stayed in right until the end to make sure I got a shot of everyone boarding the real train- I love it when there's moments that really complete the wedding story!
