from just outside Eye, Suffolk, spent the end of last month with his camera pointed at one of our lovely red balloons in Cornwallis.

The balloon ride passengers, Marcus’ mother-in-law Judy, and husband Steve, were celebrating Steve’s 50th birthday. Due to weather cancellations, the celebrations were somewhat delayed, but of course most definitely worth the wait.

“The flight took place in Norfolk on a beautiful Friday morning (30th September). They really could not have had a better day, the weather was perfect! The light was fantastic for photography; there was even some low-lying mist which made it even more magical. The preparations and getting ready started at 7 am with take-off about 8 am, about an hour later the balloon landed in a field just outside the town of Wymondham,” said Marcus.

Marcus, married to Natalie and father to three girls, took the plunge just 12 months ago to turn his keen interest in photography into a professional service at affordable prices specialising in Portrait and Wedding Photography.
