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!

The Big Fat Wedding Blogger’s Photo Shoot – The Final Results & Video!
February 21, 2011
What do you get when you cross 6 wedding bloggers, The Wedding Photographer of the Year, London’s most stylish & gorgeous wedding boutique and a Hasselblad? Why, The Big Fat Wedding Blogger’s Photo Shoot of course!
My inspiration for this shoot came from the fact that I had seen a lot of big brands in The States using fashion bloggers to model for and promote their new lines. I loved the idea and thought it could really work for the UK wedding market. After all, wedding blogs are the new wedding magazines right?! I approached Rachel at Wimbledon-based Luella's Boudoir if she’d be up for letting us run wild in her shop and thankfully she loved the idea!

Rustic, Bohemian & Music-Filled Wedding
May 21, 2017
Amy and John wanted to be married outside and for their wedding to have a bohemian and rustic vibe. Both being massive music lovers, that was also always going to be a big part of the celebrations. They had a rock and blues band (who are all their friends) as their entertainment and the bride sang with them in the evening too!

Magpie Vintage Launch The Rose Collection…and I Get on a Horse & Jump on a Trampoline to Celebrate!
March 25, 2011
I sneak peeked this shoot back in February but I had to wait until now to share the full thing...sorry to keep you all waiting, it was hard for me too!
I was asked by Lisa & Tania, the vintage jewellery aficionados behind Magpie Vintage if I'd like to model for their latest campaign - the launch of their brand new clothing line. Needless to say I didn't need much convincing, even when they told me I had to get on a horse!
‘Rock n Robin’: A1950’s Christmas Shoot for the BBC
November 7, 2011
I know what you're thinking...Christmas stuff already woman?! Well just hear me out would ya...
I've known wedding photographer Ashton Jean-Pierre ever since we both went to Emma Case's wedding back in March. I don't think we managed to talk on the night, but after the event I saw some of his incredible photos (that he just took on his iPhone!) on facebook and so I got in contact to ask if I could share some of them on my blog. He said yes and we've chatted online ever since.
Ashton is deaf which makes no differece at all when communicating online, but when he asked if Gareth & I would like to do a mini shoot with him I was a teeny tiny bit nervous on how we would get on it 'real life'. However I needn't have worried. Ashton is so expressive and animated that it's actually pretty easy to have a conversation, and although I didn't know any sign language before we met, we were easily able to chat by gesturing and using good old fashioned pen and paper to write things down.
