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!
Last week I had the delight of photographing this little fella as a surprise birthday present. I watched in amazement as with no fuss, he took himself off to sleep in his chair and was content as I as captured him dreaming. Then after his nap, I managed to get myself a cuddle with him, and caught a few smiles too.
Despite the rain I loved catching up with Allison and Paul for their pre-wedding shoot at their beautiful home in Derbyshire. We first caught up on their wedding plans and then had a little stroll, with their very faithful dogs! I’m really looking forward to their day at the end of this month, they really do make each other smile, and to me that’s No. 1 on any relationship list. Can’t wait to see you both again, it’s going to be an amazing day …
