This afternoon I joined the Radburn family at their home in Derbyshire to capture some photographs for their Grandads birthday next month. I had a great time with them all!!!
……. and with a cheeky smile!!!
……. up close!!!!
Yesterday the beautiful couple (both inside & outside) Allison and Paul married at the stunning Makeney Hall in Derbyshire and in celebration of that the sunshine came out – after what has been a long winter.
Their wedding was one that brought two families together, it was one filled with family and friendship and close celebration. I’ll always remember Paul & Allison for their warmth with each other, and I very literally saw them bring a twinkle to each others eyes! Allison looked very beautiful, and she was very proud of her son Matt who walked her down the aisle and daughter Sam, who sang for guests at dinner, and added even more emotion to their first dance.
It was really fitting that Allison had chosen a bright pink and orange colour scheme, it steered away from traditional winter tones of red and with the sun making it’s debut for 2011, it looked gorgeous!!
Mr & Mrs Evans, we wish you a very, very happy journey through life together xx
It was lovely as always to work with the wonderful Sarah Gamble of SJG Professional Make Up Artistry, Sarah Glennie for her stunning venue styling of Tillyboo Events, beautiful and yummy cakes by Jo of Cakey Wakey, fabulous music by Jason Hart and gorgeous flowers from Louise of The Greenery
Myself and Wayne worked together again with model Georgina Stokes. After the bridal shoot it was a change of make up and clothing and on to the scrapyard. This placed Rocked!
Looking for a return trip so many places to shoot, but so little time to complete. Here are some of the shots.
Make-Up Artists: Sarah Gamble
Model: Georgina Stokes
Our first wedding in Nottingham for 2011 started with the beautiful Rogers family. It was held with a civil ceremony and reception at the stunning Woodborough Hall in Nottinghamshire. The early February British weather wasn’t so fabulous, with the rain and wind dying off about ten minutes before I left. However it didn’t spoil one little bit for any of us!
In the short time that I’ve got to know the Rogers family, they’ve been a huge pleasure to be with. The boys are beautiful and I’m going to miss photographing them dearly. We wish you all a very happy, healthy future together !!
Just a note too, about the scrummy cake designed and made by the very talented Joanne Wakefield of Cakey Wakey, when Valentines day was just a few days away the cake felt a perfect tribute to it.
I had to include this shot, speeches are best made straight for the heart, this was a moment in Win’s speech that captured us all – and meant the world to Julie …..
A great day of shooting with some fabulous local suppliers, the backdrop for this shoot was the beautiful Risley Hall an 11th Century Saxon country house set in 10 acres of private landscaped grounds in Derby. The dresses designed by the very talented Jackie Thompson of Jackie Thompson Couture wedding dress designers with a difference!
I was joined by fellow photographer Wayne to create some great images in a fun filled day…. enjoy.
