All this rain...

All this rain is starting to depress me, especially after all of the nice weather that we were having just a couple of weeks ago.
Everything is so gloomy and I really want to get out of this house and breathe some fresh air!
I think my camera is also starting to feel quite neglected.

I really hope the weather turns for the weekend.
I am photographing Katie and Peter's wedding in beautiful surroundings on the edge of Skipton and I would really like the weather to be nice for them so that they can make the best of their day and location.

The papers have been saying that we are going to have a heat wave in mid August, so I am planning to visit my dad in Devon for a few days.

It will be nice to see some greenery rather than red brick terraced houses that look so dark and dismal in the rain and the sea air will be a welcome change.
It has been quite some time since I was last down there so I'm already planning my coastal walks and sailing trips!
A perfect opportunity for some coastal and landscape photography :)

I'm also planning a trip to Northumberland in a couple of months, although by that time it will be out of season for the Puffins, however, the coastal landscape up there is supposed to be stunning and I will finally get chance to visit Alnwick!

Fingers crossed that the weather improves soon!

Where The Wild Things Are

I don't usually post about films but while being in danger of sounding a little bit sad, I really don't care as I'm so excited about this film! It was my favourite book as a child and I can't wait to see it at the cinema!!

Its a bit of a shame though as I don't have anyone to share my excitement with, as no one seems to remember the book! But to my delight, I discovered that my 6 year old neighbour reads the book at school! Woo hoo!

I really hope that this film will be everything that I hope it is. From the look of the trailer, I'm sure I won't be disappointed.
It is shot so beautifully - the composition of the shots, style of filming, costume design... and I think it really reflects the book so well.

Have a look at the trailer and decide for yourself... those of you who don't know the book might not quite understand what is going on or what the hell it is actually about, but take it from me, it is an awesome book and imprinted on my memory as a child so well that I can still remember most of the lines! haha!

I can't wait!!!!!

Aaaaaaar wooooooooo!

Joanne & Joseph's Wedding

The beautiful weather held out for Joanne & Joseph's wedding. They had a Catholic service which was different as I couldn't take photographs during the ceremony.

It was also quite odd because I had not met the Groom prior to the wedding as this was a very late booking, but everything went well and both the bride and groom had a lovely day.

I will post more feedback from Joanne and Joseph, as well as a link to their gallery once they have had time to look through the photographs properly.

Gary & Sarah's Wedding

Here are a few more shots from Gary & Sarah's Wedding.
The wedding was very small, there were only 10 people including the Bride & Groom but it was a lovely service and a beautiful day to match.
