Birthday party shoot for katie

A couple of months ago I had a call from our lovely friend Hannah who’s wedding we photographed a while back asking if we could offer a fun shoot for her pal Katie, who’s wedding we also shot 🙂 along with a few close friends all of whom we knew.

Well Hannah is one of my fav peeps so I was more than happy to sort something out and together we came up with a plan 🙂  last saturday was party day an the 6 girls came up with a couple of outfits and we had such a blast taking photos whilst the girls enjoyed a couple bottles of bubbly.

Afterwards the girls headed into town for an afternoon on the cocktails.

We had a great time, thanks you so much Hannah for organising this you are awesome XX

Great to see you all girls X

Sue and I photograph hundreds of portraits every year and I am very proud to say we always get the results we want, we have very much an unhurried approach to our studio work, we often sit down for a coffee with our clients before the shoot and let the kids play on the background with out toys, this make the parents relaxed and the children comfortable and it gives us cracking smiley photos. The difference between us and a high street studio with a strict time limit is immeasurable because unlike them we never rush a shoot. We believe if people are comfortable and happy in our studio then they will come back again and again and its proved to work 🙂

It also helps that we both LOVE what we do………..

We are running some very special portrait offers at the moment so if your looking for photos of yourself or your  a couple or a family please take a look because I am sure you will find something that will interest you

Nick and Jill at Careys Manor

On Sunday we joined Nick and Jill for their wedding at Careys manor for what was to be our last planned wedding for the year and it was a fab wedding to finish on too.

We started our day with Jill at Careys Manor for an hour or so preparation and had lots of fun with Jill and the girls and her son Harvey who was a proper little man and kept us all on our toes,  After an hour or so we headed out to meet with Nick and the boys and grab a few shots in the grounds before the wedding,  Todays wedding was taking place outside so we checked out the ceremony spots and checked in with the registrars then headed back to Jill who was running a little late so we quickly took photos of her stepping into her beautiful wedding dress then headed off back to the ceremony to away her arrival.

When Jill did walk into view she looked absolutely amazing and the whole wedding was a silent hush whilst she walked down the isle to her man,  the ceremony was short and sweet and thankfully in beautiful early winter sunshine. Afterwards we all headed out into they lovely grounds for some relaxed reportage photos whilst the guests enjoyed their bubbles and chatting, A few family photos then we took Nick, Jill and Harvey off for some photos before we were ushered into dinner.

After a scrumy dinner we had the speeches which were proper emotional, Nick struggled to get his words out which just chocked everyone up and was perfect.

We then setup our funtime booth again outside and had a blast for a couple of hours whilst we waited for the first dance.

The dance soon came around and was again just perfect for these 2, well 3 because Harvey joined in too.

We had a lovely wedding with Jill and Nick and a perfect last wedding of the year,  Having said that We just booked another wedding which was connected through a previous client so it looks like more to come before we can rest 🙂

Nick and Jill thanks for a fun day and a lovely dinner too X

Here are a few photos from this wonderful wedding I hope you enjoy and love them as much as we do and look forward to your comments and seeing you again soon,

Ade and Becky’s Steampunk wedding

Last saturday we joined Ade and Becky for their SteamPunk wedding near Newbury.  We met Ade and Becky earlier this year when our friend Lou recommended us to them and straight away we were intrigued with their wedding plans, they explained the steampunk idea and we loved it so we were very excited about today and exotically all the beautiful details.

We were not disappointed 🙂

We started the day with Becky at the beautiful Vineyard hotel where we spent a couple of hours photographing the details including my favourite ever wedding shoes, they were to die for ! The details were amazing, flowers, shoes, dresses rings, everything 🙂   After a couple of hours we left the girls and headed off to the church to meet Ade and his best man, well Best Lady actually 🙂 and still the details kept coming. Amazingly almost all of the wedding guests joined in and dressed up in all manner of things, some truly amazing outfits and accessories and all this added to the awesome theme that Ade and Becky had created.

Soon Becky arrived in a gorgeous Bentley looking stunning and in her own words very determined 🙂  because she was running late we only spent a few moments outside and was whisked into the church to a waiting crowd.  The ceremony was beautiful and pretty much like any other christian wedding apart from the steampunk outfits or “fancy dress” as the vicar called it, haha. Afterwards we headed outside for some relaxed reportage for 15 minutes then the family shots and then we headed back to the reception venue which was a family friends house called Wormstall hall which was a pretty unique place too and perfectly matched the steampunk theme. The house was filled with all manner of oddities from stuffed animals to huge iron bath tubs in the hallway, a truly amazing place to host a steam punk wedding.

After a few portraits in the grounds in failing light we headed back inside to the guests who were enjoying a lovely selection of canapés and after a couple hours relaxed photos along with portraits in the billiards room of all the main wedding party we went into dinner which then led to some pretty entertaining speeches,  At this point things were running behind a little but it was such an awesome day nobody cared. After the mains the toastmaster stood up and instructed people that there was a. “honestly bar” un the next room as well as deserts but before people could get to either we were having our cake cutting and first dance, which a loud WHOOP We then headed onto the dance floor for a fab first dance routine. Sue and I then said our goodbyes after a long but very interesting and fun wedding day.

This was an unusual wedding in its theme but the common theme amongst weddings was just the same as always, 2 people very much in love and a room full of friends making for a superb wedding day.  We really enjoyed our first Steampunk wedding and cant wait to do it all over again.

Here are a few photos from this wonderful wedding I hope you enjoy and love them as much as we do and look forward to your comments and seeing you again soon,
