As you read this I will be sat in a tattooists chair trying my hardest to act cool and not over-react to the pain. Oh yes people I am getting a half sleeve! I have been dreaming of getting one for the past few years (in fact pretty much since I started doing this and staring at gorgeous inked brides all day!) so I’m beyond excited (and nervous) that the day has finally arrived. It will take a few sessions to finish but rest assured that I will be sharing the experience of it all with you when it’s done and luckily for you (and me) I’ve already got a few photographers who’ve asked to take some photographs of me with it once it’s done. Bonus!
Anyway…on with this thing we call Thursday Treats. I’ll see you when I’m back from the tattooists (eeeek!)
Tommy & Meredith are so damn cute n cool that it hurts! I am dying over their simple but perfect engagement session and their matching red and black checks are way-too-adorable. Both artists, it was obvious that they’d have to do something super creative for their engagement session. It just so fun and natural!

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.
When I received the initial email from Roland of S8 Films I was blown away. Not only did I instantly adore their work but I was delighted to discover they are London based (in fact right around the corner from my soon-to-be-part-time ‘day’ job!) The Super 8 format has been growing in popularity over the last few years. From it’s grainy texture to it’s raw, ‘real’ appeal, it’s easy to see why brides all over the world have fallen in love with it. In fact if we had made the decision to have a wedding film made, I know Super 8 would have been the way we’d done it.
