Slightly busy.. slightly slow to post this and the next two blog posts.. so without further messing about here are a few images from Hayley and Andrew’s wedding earlier this month (It’s just about still September I think!)
Enough chat, here are some photos:
As the regular readers and anybody who has had to endure my whinging knows…
I was recently asked by an arts centre in the City to shoot their exhibition which is funded by the City Council and to be archived by them.
The exhibition will run for three months in it’s initial location (The Drum | 144 Potters Lane | Aston | Birmingham | B6 4UU) then after that I’m hoping to grow the project through further funding. A website is almost ready and possibly a book via blurb (to keep it simple)… The exhibition has it’s launch night tomorrow.. I have to speak about it, answer questions etc etc.. come support me if you can, it’s last minute and in Birmingham, UK so no worries.. it’s on until mid December.
Anybody interested in the future of the project, who should be included, who wants to help with funding, and so on.. get in touch!
*last minute edit.. here’s a shot by my friend Clive Blair (another great photographer) of me at the launch:
Everything was spot on… the weather, the venue, the dress, the shoes, the car, the golf buggies, the Duke of marlborough … hold on! Golf buggies? the duke? the weather?! Yes!
Had a great day shooting the wedding of Nicky and Mark on Saturday, starting out at Nicky’s house in Warwick, then the ceremony at St Mary’s in Warwick and onwards to the reception at the one and only Blenheim Palace , a world heritage site that is home to the Duke and Duchess of Marlborough (they live in the wing next to the wedding reception venue) and the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill.
Golf buggies were hired to zip around the Palace grounds, and the weather was just amazing. Honestly I could spend hours in those grounds taking photographs of beautiful brides and grooms! Really looked forward to it and really enjoyed the time I spent there. Wedding photography is definitely a privilege, I don’t care how corny that sounds!
Big thanks to everybody on behalf of the couple and myself. Both venues were stunning and the fairytale wedding was one to remember!
I’m on a roll this weekend, yet again somehow I’ve managed to post the latest wedding in record time! Seriously.. I’m too busy to be this fast! Or too excited?! Must stop drinking green tea at night. Seriously though, I’m a night time camomile man, yes… I got older this week.
Anyway back on topic… today saw me shooting Joanne and Adrian’s wedding over in Tamworth, and at Newton Regis Village Hall for the reception. Big thanks to all involved, including Anita at Brittons Caterers for feeding me and my assistant. Food is always the key to a man’s heart!
The day was chilled out, the bride was traditionally late (though the blame lies with the bridesmaids we’re told!) and the weather stayed dry if a bit chilly! Goose bumps all round! We love England.
That’s enough of me…
