Outdoor Christmas adventures with a Norwich Portrait Photographer-Gemerations Photography

Updated: Feb 22

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love Christmas and its my busiest time of the year in the Gemerations Photography studio with children photoshoots and family photoshoots. Christmas is certainly going to be a different one for us all this year, so that’s why I have been looking for different festive places to visit.

I love getting outside with my camera when I’m not working in the Gemerations Studio as a children's photographer. This is my third blog, where I am sharing another special location in Norfolk, this time its Peter Beales Roses in Attleborough. I visit each year in the summer to see their beautiful Rose Gardens in full bloom, however December’s visit offered something very magical.

Christmas Magic

One of my favourite parts of Peter Beales is this stunning metal tower, it's always beautiful with Roses, but the addition of the Christmas Tree at the top was extra special. I was mesmerised by watching the different light combinations and I had to time it perfectly to capture the pink and purple lights with my camera, but it was certainly worth the wait.

Peter Beales has lots of stunning archways which were full of beautiful lights, there was even some roses still out in bloom. The long archway reminded me of a corridor to an enchanted fantasy wonderland.

Further along the gardens I stumbled across more lights, in the form of giant Reindeers, which were simply beautiful in the darkness. I even came across some dinosaurs!

Peter Beales would make a wonderful and mesmerising place to visit with your little one's this Christmas and what's even better is that its free parking and free entry (there is a donations pot upon leaving). The gardens are nice and flat, with good accessibility for pushchairs and buggies. You must also make sure you go back and visit again during the Rose Festival too.
