Wedding fairs – Spring 2016

It’s nearly time again for the spring set of wedding fairs.  I love meeting brides and grooms at wedding fairs and hearing their stories whether they are just recently engaged or a little further along in their planning.

I would be so great to see you … but, of course, if you can’t make it to one of the fairs, I’m available to meet over tea and cake …

 

 

The power of the print

Just before Christmas, I delivered four wedding albums to various clients.  One of the couples was Rachel and Pete, whose wedding I photographed all the way back in 2010.  They had recently moved to a new home and wanted to have a wedding album which, of course, I was delighted to help them design.

When I delivered their album, I noticed that on the wall, they were proudly displaying a selection of their favourite wedding day images … I asked them to send me over a picture of their display and so I must credit this image to Rachel and Pete Amos!

I can’t tell you how happy this makes me feel – that my couples value their wedding photography so much and want to share their images.  I know that the wedding album must have been enjoyed so much over the Christmas break and I’m certainly looking forward to joining Rachel and Pete on many more celebrations in the future!  Thank you both for taking the time to send through this image xx

Sian, Jason and Cookie … final wedding of the year at Howfield Manor {sneak peek}

My final wedding of the year had just 18 guests and was fabulous and fun from start to finish. At Howfield Manor, where I was welcomed by the lovely Hayley with the immediate offer of a cup of tea (next time …), some soft light, a gorgeous bride, handsome groom, exceptionally helpful bridesmaid (who helped me with lighting the details) and Cookie. The most gentle and calm spaniel who was so patient and well behaved.

And Sian and Jason’s happiness was so very evident.

And the fact that Sian and Jason danced out to an Austin Powers song, I just couldn’t keep the smile off my face!

I was delighted that we had time to get out into the gardens and considering it was December, we all felt that we were lucky to get outside at all!

I was only with Sian, Jason and their guests for a few hours, and so I left them to their wedding breakfast before they were joined by over 100 friends to party long into the night.

This was such a great wedding on which to end my busiest year. Thank you both for allowing me to join you for your celebrations and I’m looking forward to sharing your final edits with you as soon as possible xx
