Being a real life published writer is such an amazing feeling. I can’t get over that rush I feel seeing my thoughts and ideas in print. I’d like to thank the wonderful Jonas Peterson for being this month’s guinea pig and of course all the guys at Photo Pro Magazine for letting me loose! If you’re in the UK, pop into your local WH Smith and check out the magazine in real life. It’s aces.
Skye & Liam had a detail-perfect Halloween wedding in Cambridgeshire. The couple really went all out and even had a pumpkin carving competition for their guests. They suspected many people wouldn’t bother, but to their surprise and delight nearly every guest brought a personalised pumpkin to share! What a talking point huh?
When I saw this image of the bride & groom both rocking the red shoes I knew I’d have to share – and sharpish! UK Photographer Chloe Browne sent me the sweetest email telling me all about Tara & Lawrence’s Greenwich wedding:
Sandra & Duncan’s ‘Dressed to Impress’ wedding made such a stir when I posted it in September that I have been eagerly waiting for more from photographers Chanelle & Craig. As you may remember, Sandra is a fashion designer so made her impressive dress and customised her own Casadei Couture shoes. Well the follow up is just as glorious – check out her inspiring reception dress, which she again designed and made herself. These are off-the-chart amazing – Carrie Bradshaw who? For all the juicy details on the outfits, the venue and the vendors head over to Segerius Bruce’s blog…yummers!

Both beautiful and fun, this wedding was zipped over to me by newbie photographer Emma Case. I am struggling to believe this is only the second wedding she has ever shot! The Southampton based photographer told me all about Ruth & Dan’s wedding:
Ruth and Dan were married on the 3rd October 2009 at Hartington Hall Youth Hostel in Derbyshire. They hired the whole hostel for the weekend and guests shared traditional style youth hostel rooms with single beds, bunk beds and shared showers!
