Mark the date- Richard and Beth

Back in october, it was my best friend’s anniversary. Her husband rang me up a couple of days before, asking if he could just have 3/4 photos to “mark the date”. I thought it was a great idea, you don’t want a full blown shoot, but just want something to remember the day. He took her out for lunch, then bought her round without warning (a risky move) and we shot a few photos. It was so nice in fact, that it was our 10th anniversary of being engaged the next week that my husband suggested we do the same…

Sneak Peek for Grace & Josh…

It’s been so long since I’ve posted anything, I thought I’d better post at least one pic. I’ve been swamped with weddings and family portraits over the summer, so watch this space when I finally have time to add some larger posts. For now, here’s something from Josh and Grace’s most anticipated wedding. I’ve done a portrait shoot for these in spring 2011, and a prewed shoot at the beginning of this year, and I knew their wedding was going to be amazing! Here’s my favourite shot so far…

Mum’s the word…Lydia, Ross and Ellen’s present for Mother’s day

Ok, so I know Mother’s day was a while ago, but I’m very good at getting distracted. I’m way behind with my blogging and have a few more to catch up on besides this. So, I got a text from Lydia about a week before mother’s day saying she wanted a nice sibling photograph for her mum, coz let’s face it, us mother’s always love a pic of the kids together. With quick secret planning we met up at Rother Valley and did a 15 minute shoot. Mum was very pleased with their efforts and it’s now displayed on the wall 🙂

Rachel and Craig’s Wedding, at Quarry Bank Mill in Manchester

I’ve been very fortunate with my photography, as most of my work comes through word of mouth and bridesmaids. Rachel was a bridesmaid for Lizzie’s wedding that I did back in april 2011, and Lizzie was a bridesmaid for Emma’s wedding back in 2010. So I’ve been very lucky that these girls saw me in action on the wedding, knew what I was like to work with and then booked me for their special day.

Rachel squeezed her wedding in between Christmas and New Year, so there was the added bonus of christmas lights everywhere. It was cold, but not too bad, and the weather held which I never complain at. They had their reception at Quarry Bank Mill in Manchester, which I believe is a national trust site. It’s unlike anywhere else I’ve shot before for a wedding and it was wonderfully refreshing to have something different to work with, I thoroughly enjoyed it (as I always do anyway). I asked Rachel after the honeymoon to write a little note to any engaged ladies that happen to look at this blog and impart any wisdom she has for the big day…

 

To a future bride

Firstly, if you haven’t decided whether to book Abi yet, book her! She isn’t just an amazing photographer but she makes the day run so smooth. We didn’t have to worry about getting guests together for photos. She made sure I was keeping to schedule. You would not find anyone more efficient (THANK YOU ABI). A tip for the day, it’s all out of your control so sit back and enjoy and remember why you’ve endured a number of breakdowns for months from planning a wedding…so you can marry the one! So try and focus on that. You have probably heard it many times before and I’m only 4 weeks in, but married life really is the best!

Garden things…

Now that I am very lucky to be getting a lot of paid work, I rarely find the time to take pictures just for the sake of playing with my camera. Over the past week the kids have been busy in the garden, growing vegetables, playing, finding animals, the usual. Between my youngest causing havoc I managed to take a few snap in between the mayhem.
