You’d be hard pressed to find more of a gentleman than in the modest yet very honest and open person of Andrew. His sense of humour and lightness he opens up to conversations with have been a joy to experience. Zoe truly is a lucky girl here! :)
As for Zoe, one must meet her to understand how nice it is to spend time in her company, from the very first coffee and cake:) We met in the morning for preparations and I couldn’t believe how relaxed and ‘ready’ she was, a true mademoiselle anticipating the beautiful ceremony and reception which has been arranged to take place in the Angel Hotel, Market Harborough. The wedding ceremony then commenced with a magical and modest reception for closest friends and family among whom many shared a few laughs in between shots.
Zoe and Andrew, you are a truly magical and perfect couple. Thank you for entrusting me in documenting your day. I’m so happy we’ve met!
They’ve greeted me with such energy and openness I knew from the very first moment this would be a great adventure. We kept on having laughs whilst shooting photos which both kept on coming naturally. Heavens opened for us as well and the afternoon was lit beautifully at the Embankment site in Bedford where the shoot took place. Both natural, walking, talking and even dancing with such poise it left me wanting nothing more. What a brilliant couple! Thank you Jade and Ben! I truly can’t wait to be part of your wedding next year!
My short adventure with product photography has come to an end with an assignment to shoot jewellery pieces by a starting artist. Last thing I can say about it is that it’s easy. Yet, enjoyed taking these immensely.
Most recent assignment has taken me to Northampton’s Radisson where the lucky guests who got their hands on tickets for the night were to meet the one and only Jimmy Bullard, most notably Hull and Fulham’s midfielder. The night commenced with photos of the guests with Jimmy and then a set of performances and auctions in order to raise awareness of the Neuroblastoma Cancer, a terminal disease causing 100 deaths in children every year. Please do take time to have a look at the 2 websites devoted to this cancer here and here.
Special thanks go to Chris, the charity representative who lost his daughter due to Neuroblastoma Cancer, and who continuously fights to raise awareness of the disease, raise money for research and help affected families. Huge thanks go to James Wager, the events organiser without whom the night would not have happened. James can be seen in one of the photos below with Jimmy. And of course thanks go to all those who donated, took active part in the auctions as well as those who presented the auction memorabilia. A truly successful night for the charity and all gathered.
Looking forward to the next events!
This varies between couples some for whom it is important to cover the elements of the day normally missed yet inevitably parts of it. And there are some who specifically ask for a larger coverage of those as they want to remember that handmade wicker heart-shaped box the bride’s mum helped to prepare. There’s something special about photographing still objects, the details, the elements of the big picture which form it naturally and beautifully like pieces of a puzzle. And I for one love it!
