So many people braved the weather and ventured out to Gressenhall, where a spectacular event had been organized! A 50s event with fashion show showcasing fashions from the era in the categories daywear, eveningwear and leisure. There was a DJ spinning tunes for everyone to get up and jive to, complete with lessons for those who wished to learn more. Re-enactment to show how Gressenhall functioned in the 50s, as an old peoples home and a place for single mothers. A barber was ready to give a haircut to gentlement and the Historical Suaces had their readingroom which was highly popular.
The Historical Sauces also gave their popular ‘licks and flicks’ makeover to any visitor and retro red lipsticks were available for purchase, or you could sit down with a nice cuppa and browse through all the books and look through the special Coronation table they had set up for the Jubilee event.

I took part of the fashion show, showcasing my little white suit and my 50s umbrella and Dior’esque hat! My fellow ladies in the fashion show were utterly fabulous and showed the various fashions from the decade, all organized by Karen James-Welton from Blue Skies Vintage Event.
Much fun were to be had and I can’t wait to go back and photograph some more fabulous events coming up!
It’s going to be a grand day at Gressenhall today. My own 50s suit and ladies umbrella might be good enough for modelling!
I will post again with a selection of snapshots so stay tuned!
Oh and tomorrow I will be shooting at the ladies Jubilee tea party at my favourite pub, The Mulberry on Unthank Road in Norwich.

Do come along for a great day in beautiful surroundings, the weather is supposed to be smashing!
Friday the 25th I had the pleasure of attending and photographing Joline and David at their stunning wedding. It was held in the gorgeous Catholic Cathedral in Norwich.
The party was so much fun, with the bride and groom entertaining the guests with their own band, the bride on drums, still in her wedding dress and the groom on guitar! We partied until late and I managed to get a snapshot of the couple sneaking out for a kiss in the moonlight.
Many thanks to Joline and David for a wonderful wedding!
