To April (yes 2014!) with the wedding of Kerrie and Richard at Ardencote Manor. This wedding signaled the beginning of the 2014 wedding season for me. I'm still in the thick of it with 4 weddings last week and 2 this week before I head off for a weeks rest. It's been a tough season, my toughest yet, but I wouldn't change it. I appreciate all of the customers who have booked weddings, photographers in the studio and also my studio customers who are helping the dream become a reality :)
I remember vividly travelling down to Warwick the day before and being blown away by the view and very excited by the prospect of shooting the longest group shot I've ever taken, I was very excited about it on instagram as you can see...
We've had lots and lots of babies coming in over July and August. We'll be putting up a few more faces soon enough! Today we've got baby Mason who came in a wore some of our new head gear. My fave is definitely the cute bear hat but we've some other fun props in too.
We've been really selective with Mason and shown just a few, in black and white and colour to show how pictures change with the difference in colour. Also, I loved some of the awesome signs he was throwing on the sofa, really cute!

It hasn't been all that long since I posted the last wedding for Alex and Kim but it's August now, with 12 weddings between now and September 1st (not to mention the few in September) I have a feeling I'm not going to be able to make much time to write blog posts.
It's great news as this is my busiest year ever. I must admit, the workload is heavy and I could do with some elves to start helping me out but I'm so greatful to all of the couples who have booked and that my wedding photography continues to be successful.
However, I did want to start posting some weddings that were actually photographed this year! Rich and Diane became my first wedding of 2014 when they unexpectedly moved up the date from April. It turns out it was an excellent decision as their original date was completely rained on.
I've not photographed at the Welcombe hotel before but I must say the gardens and wedding ceremony room were very very pretty. As you can expect from these huge manor houses we have large windows that let in enormous amounts of light to the right places and then some dark corners to create some really cool, moody shots- take a look:
