Stefanie & Charlotte (Preview)

Stefanie

Last week I had a shoot with Stefanie & Charlotte.

This was the first time that I have shot with two models in one sitting, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect...
But the shoot went really well, apart from a location issue.
In the end, we used a woodland, the canal locks and a folly so there was plenty of variety in both surroundings and themes.

More shots to follow soon...

Tom & Charity's Wedding

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing Tom and Charity's wedding in Leeds.
It was a beautiful day and the weather held out nicely.

Its lovely to see different weddings and Tom and Charity's was very different from any other that I have photographed so far.

They had combined the traditional with the modern extremely well.
The wedding took place in a beautiful, traditional church with stunning arches and Mouseman carved woodwork.

Instead of a traditional white wedding dress, Charity wore a beautiful dusty gold dress with a contemporary feel - she looked stunning.

The reception was held at their home, and there were so many details to capture, even personal messages on the decorations.
The buffet was Thai themed and the wedding cake was a cupcake tower.
I loved the strawberries, their little chocolate jackets must have taken the caterers ages!

Devon

Last week, we headed down to Devon. It was nice to get away for a few days and spend some time in the countryside as well as by the coast.

We spent a day sailing, down the river Dart from Totnes and round to Start Point (by Hallsands, where the village fell into the sea during a storm in 1917). Well, when I say sailing... it was more motoring as there wasn't enough wind to keep any of the sails up!

Obviously, I made time for a bit of photography and I even managed a sunrise at the Daymark by Kingswear.

Dartmouth Daymark Dartmouth Daymark

The Daymark was built in 1864 as a navigational aid for ships entering Dartmouth (as the bay is fairly hidden amongst the cliffs). It stands 25 meters high and is owned and maintained by the Dart Harbour Commission.

We also visited Sharpham Vinyard (very nice wine) and there were some beautiful views of the River Dart leading up to Totnes.

Although it is nice to be home, I have to say that I really didn't miss the terraced houses looming over us and I still can't wait to move out of the city!

Katie & Peter's Wedding

Here are a few photographs from Katie & Peter's Wedding in Elslack, on the edge of Skipton.

Katie & Peter

Their wedding day was lovely (apart from the rain), but as the wedding was all in one location, this wasn't too much of a problem and there was plenty of space for group shots indoors.

The wedding cake was brilliant - decorated with dolly mixtures and this made a lovely change.
It also really suited Katie's bubbly personality!
