This week’s photography Friday is a bit of a ‘week in pictures’ kind of post. Here’s what yours truly got up to over the past 7 days…
Monday was my Dad’s birthday so we went over for a curry and played Jenga. How Rock n Roll is that!? It was ‘crazy Jenga’ we played though, does that make it cooler?!
Jamie, my sister Rachel’s boyfriend…he’s a bit of a Jenga geek.
And the lady herself. I’m not a huge fan of black & white usually, but I had a little play with this one. I kinda like it. Gritty…
On Wednesday I went Christmas shopping and met up with the Rock n Roll Intern, Alice. We had lunch, coffee, gossip and discussed our blog plans for 2011. I’m excited about what we have in store for you!
I loved her Urban Outfitters ring muchly.
Gareth enjoyed some ‘boys time’ with Henry and a few beers.
Rachel wasn’t quite as impressed.
However Rachel certainly wasn’t left out…She and Gareth had a bit of father/daughter time…Is anyone else a little concerned looking at these pictures? I can almost hear Gareth thinking, “aww I wish she was a baby…” Ahh crap!
Seriously cute though. Look at all the LOVE! Now, am I just being a crazy cat lady, or is Rachel actually smiling in this picture?
So, how was your week? Are we getting excited for Christmas yet?!
Rachel had been feeling a little miffed that Henry was getting more blog/twitter love than her. The quieter and more reserved kitten, she was often pushed to the side in the fame stakes due to Henry’s ridiculous and hilarious daily antics. “I know,” she thought “I’ll slip on these 3D glasses Mummy got in the post last week from her friend Amma…that will get me some air time.”
She was right you know.

Encouraged by a lot of your comments this week saying you wanted to see more of my photographs (I’ve just bought myself an SLR – Canon 500d to be exact – to play with) I’ve come up with a new feature. Actually, I’d like to credit this new feature to Henry & Rachel (my Maine Coons.) While I was taking some photographs of them, I wondered how I could share them with you all on the blog – which is clearly a wedding blog – without you all questioning my sanity.
However I got-to-thinking and as you all know, I pride myself on being different to all the other wedding blogs out there so this Photography Friday feature will hopefully give you more of an insight into my world – imperfectness and all – as well as allowing me to share some of my (quite frankly still rather rubbish) photographs with you.
Of course not all of you are interested in me, my house, my kittens, my outfits (as these will probably be the things I’ll take the most photographs of!) but fear not – the blog is still predominantly wedding inspiration related and they’ll still be more than enough weddings and proper photography for you to drool over! This of this new feature as just a little bonus for those of you that are interested. If you’re not I won’t be offended! I also think this might be quite an enlightening exercise for me to a) make sure I keep taking photos and b) make sure I improve! How funny will it be to look back at these shots in a year and realise how rubbish I was?!
Anyway…the stars of the show this week are of course those kittens of mine – Henry & Rachel my “f***-me I love them more than life itself” Maine Coons! (Henry is just over 10 months, Rachel is 9 1/2 – ish)
Henry didn’t know today was school portrait day. If he did he wouldn’t have stuck his head in a plate of sweet n sour chicken the night before – true story!
