Love Making It ….

It all started with a love of tea cups and lasagne nights which led to the idea of Chloe’s blog ‘I Love Making It …’ It’s a fabulous place that makes you feel homely and when you leave, feeling inspired …. and maybe a little peckish!!!

I adore the post with the little craft kits, beautifully presented in cute jars, a vintage chic gift for children and adults a like!! Love Making Craft in a jar!

We’re delighted that Chloe has a feature on our Save the date shoot with Ian and Gemma, who get married this Summer!!

… take a peek at Love Making it!!

The Morley Lifestyle …..

In the middle of the big freeze I captured the Morley lifestyle at their home in Nottingham.  With the tree up, nicely decorated and of course … the central heating on!!! We were set for a great shoot to capture some special presents for their grandparents this year.  The children were fabulous, with very short introduction they were very happy to be photographed, and even the dog was happy to listen to my direction!

I Do Wedding Cars, Nottingham

“You have the perfect venue & your dream dress, but arriving in style is what it’s all about and nothing sets the tone better than a vintage vehicle”

We’re chuffed to bits that the fabulous Jo and Pete have their new website live for I Do Wedding Cars!! Many of the images on the site were taken by Neil and I a little time back at the beautifully stunning Holme Pierrepont Hall in Nottingham, a fabulous wedding venue.  Elanor, Evie, Bonnie & Beau are four stunning vintage ladies, all individually loved and cared for so that they look gorgeous too on your wedding day!!  The beautiful Evie was actually made by Beauford for Universal Studios and appears in the Mummy Returns – driven by the lovely Brandan Fraser!!

Love the Dress with Christine!!!

A short while back when the weather was not much warmer than it is now, Christine joined me with hairstylist Sarah and MUA Sam for a wedding magazine PR shoot with the opportunity to once again ‘Love THE Dress’. Made by the fabulous Jackie Thompson Couture, Christine’s dress was beautifully designed and made by Jackie Thompson with every detail taking into consideration the concept and splendor of Christine’s ideas of how her dream dress needed to look.
