Another fab Wedding by Jules & Sue

One of my favourite days………

Yes I know we all moan about losing an hour last night and Sue and I were woken at 6 am, or was that 5 am, 7 am God knows, but we were up bright and early for this year’s first tt race for me and it marks an amazing and exciting time of year for me.

First and foremost from here on in, we get lighter evenings which means we can have so much more fun at our weddings and of course late afternoon and evening portraits. The Spring days are filled with so much promise and anticipation.

We have an amazing diary of weddings again this year and we are both really excited, a few really special ones too, for instance, Sarah and Steve, good friends of ours, Andy and Sophie, great friends, Chris is marrying Noel, he is a very long term great friend of ours and so much more. Lots of our couples celebrating 10 years WOW including Nick and Morwenna and we will surely see them for a shoot and so much more.

Our workshops also take on a new step into spring, our Durdle Door workshop is always popular at this time.

On the personal note, this week see’s us launch our Cycling club which has been a personal ambition of mine and I will run it with a few options like cycle maintenance and fitness classes which will run alongside Julian porter photography just perfectly and it’s all very exciting. Cycling and Fitness, in general, are booming and, personally, I absolutely love it and its done so much for me bot physically and mentally.

I hope you are all looking forward to being a part of our 2017 🙂 it’s going to be one of our best years yet.

Giving a little back

As most of you know, Sue and I do a great deal of work for Tesco, mostly charity related and thios past 6 months we have been travelling to the North Harbour store a lot and working with the community champion Mandi.

We meet a lot of Tesco staff and Mandi is alweays uber helpful and friendly towards us so when she reached out to us for help we were more than happy to help.

Mandi told us a story about a girl called Kayleigh who was being looked after by the amazing PICU in Southampton and how she wanted to organise a fundraiser to help the PICU. Sue and I immediatly offered our services for free to help this great cause.

Sue and I do quite a bit of charity through the year either through our Photography or our Cycling. Both we are very passionatte about. Our chosen charity is generally based around Diabetes. You can read my story on my personal Blog Here, but we are always happy to make an exception for our friends like Mandi.

We travelled to Tesco North Harbour just in time for the fun to start.  There was face painting, singers, a huge choir and all manner of things going on. We had such great afternoon.

Mandi you should be very proud of what you achived. Nothing short of awesome.

Corporate photography by Julian Porter

A few weeks ago we were contacted by B&Q and asked to go to Hedge End to photograph some staff members with a view to promoting the store relaunch and we were of course delighted. We have worked for B&Q in the past and always had an enjoyable time.  We arrived in store and took a selection of exterior photos but as requested we also took our mobile studio along for some staff photos inside which are ideal for website and promotional work just like this one of Linda which was used for the exterior promotions around the store as well as local bus stops 🙂

We offer all sorts of corporate photography from just ÂŁ200 complete with a disk of photos delivered within 48 hours

Our corporate photography rates start from as little as ÂŁ200.00 including images delivered within 48 hours or sooner if needed.

Brompton Barracks with Polly and Jerry

On Saturday, Sue and I headed off from home at 8 am in what can only be described as shocking weather, sleet, snow, and rain all the way up the M3 and M25 but even that could not dampen our spirits or our plans for a great day with Polly and Jerry at the wonderful Brompton Barracks officers mess.  We arrived in Chatham in Kent just after 10 am and familiarised ourselves with Brompton and the local Garrison church before heading off to find breakfast. We found a local cafe less than a mile from the church and ordered a coffee and breakfast, The staff were amazing and invited us to hang around in the warm whilst we waited for our start time of 12:30 so we did just that.  Good job really because it was really cold and snowing on and off until about 11:45.

Just after 12, we headed off to the church to say our “hello’s” and wait for Jerry and the boys to arrive. Because of the bitter cold, Jerry stayed in the pub, who can blame him? 🙂 but once he arrived at about 1:30 there was a flurry of activity and Sue and I had a blast photographing people arrive, It only takes a hearty “good afternoon” to make people realise that we are fun and bring on the lovely smiles, these moments make for beautiful photographs. Polly wanted these arrival shots rather than preparations today and Sue and I pride ourselves in our flexibility so were happy to swap things around.

Shortly afterwards Polly arrived looking amazing, quickly into the warm church and the waiting guests and family. A beautiful ceremony with a few lovely tweaks, the Canon got everyone to look around for a photo half way through, which was a nice touch. Afterwards, we all spilt out into the church yard for warmed Pimms and hot chocolate, another nice touch.

After a few group photos, we headed off to the lovely Brompton Barracks for the reception and spent a couple of hours enjoying the Royal Engineers hospitality and capturing beautiful relaxed photos.  A little later in for dinner and speeches including a surprise one from Polly. Then the cake cutting which was a lot of fun and then dancing. 180 people on and around the dancefloor was an epic sight.

After the first dance, Sue and I headed home, arriving 16 hours after we left 🙂

Such an amazing and well organised day, beautiful church, venue and people and an absolute joy to photograph. Thank you guys it was amazing 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,
