Edward and Ali and a whole lot of snow!

On Saturday Sue and I joined Ali and Ed on what was to become a mini adventure,  It all started on Friday night when I noticed taht the weather for Southampton looked to include a lot of early morning snow, I quickly phoned a couple of hotels and 30 minutes later Sue and I were heading off to Farnham to the Farnham House Hotel to stay the night and to hopefully avoid any snow problems…..

We woke at 7am on Saturday morning to a splattering of snow but a call to our daughter revealed that Southampton did indeed get snow and she was snowed in at home, PHEW ! good desicion so far,  we had a shower and headed of to breakfast but between ordering and receiving our coffee we noticed that the snow was now thick and very heavy so we abandoned our fiull english and headed to the Brides house. by the time we arrived it was very heavy and Ali’s road was almost blocked with cars trying to get in, eventually we managed to park in her driveway, PHEW ! again 🙂

Although we were some 2 hours early it felt prettyu good knowiing that we were with Ali and the girls safely and in plenty of time,  well after a couple of hours preperations with our good friend Natasha who did the hair and Makeup  we were about ready to leave for the church when there was a phone call from the Vicar to say that he had decided to cancel the wedding !!!  WHAT ! Moses can part the red sea, Jesus can walk on water but the bloody vicar cant get to the chuch for a bit of snow, C’mon Vic get a grip !!!   well eventually after a couple of hours and lots of phone calls, shovels and grit the vicar decided to allow the wedding to continue and we all headed off to the Church, Sue and I had to catch a lift in a 4 x 4 because the mini was well and truly snowed in by now, the Bride and maids had to cancel the Bentleys and opt for Land Rovers but all in all it was a great feeling.

After the service we then had the equally tough trip to Cain Manor where a veery warm welcome awaited us some 3 hours later than expected, but in true British style we had an amazing wedding, Ali and Edward both came outside for some fun in the snow as did the Groomsmen and Bridesmaids so all in all its a case of Alls well that ends well 🙂

Sadly Ali and Ed missed there honeymoon flight due to Snow but I am sure the memories from Saturday will keep them going for a very long time.

Our special thanks to Jackie for looking after us despite all the drama.

Merry Christmas,  Jules and Sue XXX

Severe Postal delays UK

Good morning everyone,  we have once again been warned by our couriers that we can expect severe delays with our deliveries and its quite possible that some orders will not arrive before Christmas despite us ordering well before the deadline.  so far we have been very lucky and our drivers have managed to get through but this week is looking decidedly bad and in fact its snowing heavily again now.

We are doing everything possible to help our couriers and are talking to them daily but like Sue and I, I am sure you will all agree that the safety of everyone involved is paramount and I am sure you all understand that the weather that we are experiencing here is far from normal.

Sue and I are pleased to say that about 80% of our Christmas orders have been delivered including most of the Pixie shoot and  we are hopeful that the rest will arrive in time.

Thanks so much for your patience and please do call if you have any concerns

Jules and Sue X

Stuart and Cathryn get married @ the Spreadeagle Hotel Midhurst

On Saturday sue and I joined Stuart and Cathryn who got married @ the Spreadeagle Hotel Midhurst.  As you will see from our photos today this was an amazing wedding full of colour and Christmas cheer as well as a few surprises like Santa Clause and his sack of gifts 🙂

We started our day with Catheryn in the Queens Suite at the Sprread Eagle and spent a couple of hours shooting makeup and detail shots as well as a few with the guys and the beautiful rooms all of which helps set the feel for teh wedding album for us.

We were then led into a beautiful ceremony and then into the conservatory and gardens for our photographs, whilst we took our photos the guests were entertained with a great harpist and lots of bubbly cocktails and nibbles. We then took Stuart and Cathryn into the town for some great photos and then returned for an amazing wedding breakfast and santa 🙂

Speeches and then dancing finished what had bneen an amazing wedding for us.

Special thanks as always to Horis and Emma at the Spreadeagle hotel and to Cathryn and Stuart for looking after us.

Andy and Kate get married @ Audleys Wood Hampshire

On Friday we travelled to Audleys Wood in Hampshire to photograph the wedding of Andy and Katie who we met when we photographed Katie’s sister’s wedding back in August 2008,  We started our day with Kate and the girls at Audleys for a couple of hours of fun relaxed photos before we headed off to meet a very nervous Andy in the bar., we then headed back to Kate and into the beautiful Audleys Wood ceremony room for a lovely ceremony and then we took Andy and Kate out into the snowy grounds for some fun and really gorgeous portraits.

We then went back in by the warm coal fires to warm up and take a few family groups before being called for the wedding breakfast which was scrummy, this was soon followed by the speeches and then an hours relaxing before we went into teh dancing, this was yet another amazing winter wedding and Katie was amazing and never once moaned about the cold.
