Why have a wedding album? I want to take you back to Spring 2017 - I was back home visiting my parents in Cambridgeshire, and my lovely friends and past clients Emily and Shane were visiting Emily’s parents, just a few doors down from where my parents live. We had realised this fine fate, and with their Sweden destination wedding coming up in August, we seized the opportunity to have a wedding meeting to go over their styling and ideas and most importantly the logistics and running order of the day. My Mum was thrilled to hear Emily and Shane’s plans (having known Emily since she was young) and loved asking questions about the dress, the food and all the other details. It wasn’t long before she went rummaging upstairs to pull out her wedding album from the mid 1970s, to show Emily and Shane exactly what my parents did for their wedding.
Over 10 years ago I met Nigel at a gig in Cambridge, it was one of my first big shows to shoot and Nigel's band The Foxes were playing. We stayed in touch and over the years, I caught every Foxes show I could, and I shot promotional photographs for Nigel's solo work! Nigel and Gemma met a few years later, and Gemma and I worked together on photoshoots together too. Gemma is fantastically creative, having studied fashion design at university, being a dab hand at makeup, a brilliant baker for her alternative wedding cake business Haute Cakes and a dedicated model.
Does anyone else feel like 2017 was over in a blink!? I can’t believe how quickly this year has flown by, but I’d like to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who has shown support in the past year! It’s been a fantastic year with so many unforgettable weddings, gorgeous family photo shoots, a brand new website and even a couple of features on The English Wedding Blog and Boho Weddings.
