Happy February! I have a feeling this month is going to be more than amazing because in 13 days I’m going to Las Vegas baby!! I’ll be there for WPPI – Wedding & Portrait Photographers International – i.e. a kick ass event in which 15,000 wedding photographers descend on Vegas for a week of learning and partying! Some of the most amazing wedding photographers are speaking… Jasmine Star, Jose Villa, Elizabeth Messina, Becker, The Greys… and so many photographers that I’ve only ‘met’ online are going to be there too (any of you reading this right now? Let me know in the comments!)

I am ridiculously crapping it nervous but also ridiculously squealing with delight excited all at the same time. Seriously, for a wedding photography nerd like me this is huge!

I’ll also be catching up with Gala & Nubby while I’m there and we are doing a shoot together. I could just about squeal with excitement. But I mustn’t…well certainly not in public anyway.

OK I better sit down before I fall down, why not join me in some Thursday Treats?

And finally, check out this video by Allora Visuals of the Reveie Magazine launch party that I was at a few weeks ago. You should be able to spot my pink head in there a few times!

And yes, those cocktails we’re amazing.

    Interesting article about the bride wearing her mum’s/grandma’s dress- I’ll be wearing my mum’s dress when I get married in August. It’s a bargain at the cost of a dry clean, really nice to have that continuity, and amazing how it fits perfectly, too. My mum had it tailor made in Eastern Germany in the 70s. And no, it doesn’t look like Kate’s 😉
    There is something nice about having your own dress as well, so for the evening I’ve bought a 1930s dress (a flea market find). I have to say, having read a number of your recent articles I am mighty glad I never even set foot in a bridal boutique.
    Anyone else wearing their mum’s dress? (or their nan’s?)

  2. i really love the bride in her mum and grandmas dress… i wish i could be as tiny as my mum AND grandma on my wedding day so i could wear either of their dresses, but i was blessed with curves hahaha!

    i also loved seeing the owl and the pussycat themed ideas… so cute!

    well . . .i cant decide which is my fave part of this post… oh yes i can!! who knew a song with the words ‘even if i farted and followed’ through in could be so lovely?!?! haha and im not wearing my nannas dress! as much as i wouldve loved to as it was stuning, and similar to kates actually, but i am wearing a £75 vintage one form the 30’s and i cannot wait. bridal boutiques werent for me either! 😉 ahhh i think you deserve to have an award on your mantel piece! xx
