When photographer’s Kel & Mar turned up at Richard & Josephine’s hotel room they were brimming over with ideas and excitement for their engagement shoot. However, after seeing the chaos of the room all the ideas were scrapped in favour of a much more ‘real’ photo shoot location. Finally, a shoot that makes me proud to not have a perfect, immaculate ‘magazine-worth’ house myself!
Have you ever seen anything so cute? First up the funky, urban jungle feel juxtaposed with her cute yellow flats, sticky-out skirt and glasses. Following that the book shop, the record store and playing on the swings and lounging in the park. Seems to me like the perfect backdrop to the perfect engagement session.
Gay wedding, Civil partnership, Wedding…the terminology doesn’t mean s*** to me. A wedding is a wedding and that’s that. The amazingly glam Brighton wedding of Matt & Leon was sent over by their photographer Lisa Devlin and I lapped up all the gorgeous details…who needs a bride!?
Leon & Matt got married on the anniversary of when they met and they day was a pretty memorable one! They squeezed into a stretch Hummer with their 8 bridesmaids, 3 flowergirls and the ring bearer for the short journey to Stanmer House near Brighton. Their ceremony was conducted by candlelight by a Registrar called Mr Love (!) and featured some incredible live singers.
Anyone that knows me will know that I’m terrible at keeping secrets…so this has been very very hard for me to keep schtum!
Last week I got an email from Richard of FX Films (based in Oxford) asking if he could pop round and make a little film about little me. Of course I jumped at the chance – I am a big show off after all! Stand by and prepare yourself for some serious awesome. Richard is an actual genius – he made me look so good and the music choice is utterly perfect!
The only thing I stipulated was that Henry & Rachel my Maine Coon kitties were in it (and they stole the show didn’t they?!) Oh the cute… So here’s me on a ‘normal day’ – getting up, kittens, make up, blogging, shoes, car (I love my car!) and hanging out in the park. So. Much. Fun.
If you’re on the lookout for a funky, fun filmmaker for your wedding, engagement shoot, save the date etc then be sure to go check out his website (and his awesome blog post about the day.) I can not rave enough how much fun this day was and how easy he was to work with.
Enjoy!! I can’t wait to hear your comments…go on, make me happieeee!
And some funny stills from the film: (after the jump)
Sandra & Colin’s engagement sessions makes me smile! You might recognise Sandra, as she was one of my Top 10 entries for my contest of LOVE (she’s the gal with the ‘Rock n Roll’ moustache - don’t ya just love it?!) so I was over the moon to receive this photo session in my inbox from their photographer Jes. Adorable, goofy, ballsy, fun…you gotta love these two!
Jennifer & Ian’s vintage garden engagement shoot is just so British – I love it! The slightly damp weather, the funky patterned wellies, the wheelbarrow and the greenhouse… I’m very much looking forward to seeing this couple’s vintage themed Scottish wedding in May and I hope photographer Fjona will be sending the images straight over to me afterwards – think VW van, Scottish tablet in jam jars, old fashioned luggage labels and more wellies. It’s going to be awesome I’m sure!
