A couple of weeks ago, I headed over to Lyme Park to meet Lucy and Barry for their pre-wedding shoot. In the days running up to the shoot we had been treated to some lovely sunny weather along with clear blue skies. Rubbing my hands together as if creating a cunning plan, I arranged an evening shoot so that we could make the most of the hazy evening sunshine and beautiful orange skies. In theory it was brilliant, in reality my plan didn’t quite work out like that, as the one thing us photographers can’t control is the weather. In the end we moved the shoot to the afternoon as the weather wasn’t looking too good. We may not have had the sun we were all hoping for, but we still managed to have a lovely afternoon drinking coffee, chatting about the wedding details and of course wandering around Lyme Park taking photos.
Lucy and Barry have been together for 9 years and met while both working as holiday reps. Lucy was looking after families and children, while Barry had the more extreme role of working on the 18-30′s holidays! I think Lucy is the most organised bride I’ve ever had and Barry has one of the most infectious laughs ever – I defy anyone not to smile or laugh in Barry’s company! I’m looking forward to shooting their wedding next month…..Filed under: Engagement, Pre-Wedding, Weddings | Comments Off
Back in September I had the pleasure of shooting a fabulous wedding with photographer Matt Bowen. In the morning I headed over to shoot groom Mark getting ready with all his groomsmen, then from there I made my way over to the Mere Court Hotel, where I boarded a vintage bus with all the guests. I thought it was going to be a bit of a hairy drive to the church, as I wasn’t quite ready when the driver set off, so I ended up perched on the stairs for the whole journey! As it happened I had a pretty good seat, so did the same thing after the ceremony when we headed back to the hotel for the reception. Mark proposed in Thailand, so there was a lovely theme running through the reception with the flowers and the colours – there were also many pretty details for me to pore over!

I can’t believe I haven’t got around to blogging this shoot yet! Back in April, along with a fantastic bunch of suppliers to the wedding industry, I was involved in a Jubilee themed bridal shoot. It was a fabulous day filled with gorgeous dresses, flowers, and cakes, not forgetting the stunning wedding car that also had it’s own chauffeur !Filed under: Photography, Portfolio, Weddings | Comments Off
I know we live in a digital age where more and more people are requesting digital packages for their wedding photography. When I married Ian, we were also presented with a DVD of images, and I still love sitting at my PC (yes that’s right. I’m still PC not Mac!) pawing over each and every one of them. But I also love the look on my clients faces, when they get presented with their chosen wedding images in a gorgeous bespoke wedding album. Yesterday, it was the turn of Jayne and Chris…..Filed under: Photography, Weddings | Comments Off
