Thursday Treats – 5th May 2011

I have yet more exciting news to share this week (seriously, I’m boring aren’t I?!) I’ve been asked to speak at a two-day workshop for photographers, called Love to Learn, taking place in London on September 6th & 7th. I will be speaking alongside Feather Love Photography and Bash, Please event planners!

The venue is to be confirmed but to reserve your spot, and get the early bird rate of £650 (will go up to £800 closer to the date), head over to organiser Christina Bronson’s website and register your interest. Also, check out this video made by killer video-demons Sharkpig to promote the event!

I’ve also been excitedly researching my next big photo shoot project (well actually the next two…but I’m getting ahead of myself there maybe – so many ideas!) The shoot will be taking place in Birmingham this month and I can’t wait for you to see who I’ve got involved and what the theme is! This is going to be off the charts and I am SO excited. Literally squealing with every email I get about it. More about all that soon…

But for now…

Thursday Treats – 28th April 2010

Magical right? I’m obsessed with these cinemagraphs from photographer Jamie Beck. Check them out on her blog, From Me to You!

Happy Thursday people! First off I have to give a huge shout out of love to everyone for your excitement and support over the Jasmine Star London workshop. I am thrilled at the response and so inspired by you all to get stuck into even more organising. This is going to ROCK!

Secondly, I have  a bit more news. Mark Niemierko, wedding planner to the stars, has asked me to attend his first Mark Niemierko Academy, a training course for wedding planners being held in The Dorchester in May (more info here). I’ll be guest speaking about blogs, getting your work featured and doing things your own way! I’m honoured to have been asked and I’m looking forward to being able to share some of the knowledge and insider info that I’ve gained over the past 3 or so years.

Anyway, on with this post we call treats…nom nom nom…

So, the long Easter weekend is nearly upon us. I don’t know about you, but I’m certainly looking forward to  turning my computer off (well trying to) and enjoying some April sun. Over the next 4 days, posts will be lighter but be rest assured, they’ll still be some daily eye candy to pop by and check out if your relatives start to drive you mad!

In other news, this week I was invited by WEDDING Magazine to attend their cover shoot. It was a really fabulous day and I was thrilled to be involved with such an exciting project. My behind the scenes report and photos will be on the blog next week!

Mmm tasty…I trust these treats will get you right in the mood for scoffing lots of Easter eggs this weekend?

Thursday Treats – 14th April 2011 (Party Time…Excellent!)

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 6 months, you can’t have failed to notice that tonight is The Rock n Roll Bride PARRRTAAAY. Oh sweet baby Jesus (thanks for my new favourite non-cuss Jasmine. Gareth said I’ve been swearing too much recently…whoops.)

Aaaaanyway, I am so excited. Nervous but bloody bloody excited. As you can imagine today I’m a little on the busy side organising party ‘stuff’ so they’ll only be one post today…but it’s a gooden and it means you get Thursday Treats a little earlier in the day than usual…woo-to-the-hoo!

If you’re coming to the party I can’t wait to see you all later and drink some of these…

Thursday Treats – 7th April 2011 (+ Happy Birthday to ME!)

Photography Credit: Josephine Sicad-Minerva (You can see the whole beautiful wedding here)

Today is my favourite day of the year…because to day is my BIRTHDAY! I’m 27 today and I know people say this every year, but I feel old…old and very grown up! This last year has been pretty mental and my life has been flipped on it’s head in the last 12 months, but I’ve got a feeling that this next year is going to be even better. Who’s with me?

Because of this day of celebration, this week’s Thursday Treats is a little shorter than usual. In essence, today I plan to mostly be found eating ice cream and sushi (not together though…), opening presents (I hope), going shopping (undoubtedly) and generally treating myself a lot (no question.)

So see you tomorrow my lovelies and I hope you enjoy these special birthday treats!

♥ Brooklyn promenade wedding
The Barbie Bridal Collection {Lifesize!} – every little girls dream and actually quite Rock n Roll in their own way.
