The Wise Naive @ Wedfest, Kings Lynn

Last weekends gig was an interesting one in the really pretty St Nicholas’ Chapel, Kings Lynn . I went along to take a few photos and I’m always happy for a chance to listen to some good music!

The Wise Naive are normally a 10 piece band with full brass section and percussion, for this gig they were a stripped back version of themselves but the acoustics of such a unique venue really seemed to bring out the best and they were as funky as ever. More church gigs please!!   Mark Purdy Soul DJ started and ended the night with some classic soul and motown tunes,  perfect for the dancefloor!

I didn’t mind missing the wedding show this time but here’s the links to some of the organisers and suppliers if you’re interested.

The Wise Naive– go see them next time they have a gig!

I quite like how dark the photos came out, it was quite a creepy church with all the shadows! 

 

 

Mother’s Day Mini Sessions, the loveliest gift for your Mum!

MUMS! {Mother’s Day is March 11th}

This year I thought I’d offer something new, mini portrait sessions capturing that special bond between a mother and child,  a new mum with her firstborn,  the little ones and Granny…  have you wanted to treat your mum to some beautiful photos of her with you?

Don’t put it off, I feel that mum’s put themselves last and are always the ones behind the camera, so now is the best time, Spring is on it’s way and these outdoor sessions will be natural,  relaxed and perfectly you.

Get in touch today to book in your session.

{S&J}

This was a local wedding, starting in the pretty little church at Two Mile House and afterwards we did our portraits in Camphill Community in Kilcullen, wandering around the gardens there was a nice relax away from the busyness of the day, then after that it was on to Fallons for the evening.  Everything was relaxed and calm all day really, right down to having a big BBQ for dinner and unreserved seating. Cake pops and a sweets trolley for the kids and a homemade wedding cake all added up to make this wedding a special one.

Videography on the day was by Under the Apple Tree and i can’t wait to see!

Cambridgeshire Garden Wedding

Here’s a little preview from a really fab family wedding in my hometown of Cambridge, a rainy day that turned into sunshine that turned into a garden party into the wee hours. The registry office was lovely, and the garden was set up for a proper party, photobooth, cosy corner, toasted marshmallows on the bonfire, games for the kids.. I had to leave before the Hog Roast was ready but it smelt amazing!!

I was able to catch up with some old friends and it was really lovely to be in England this time!

Congratulations to the happy couple!

The Soft Tone Needles

Best Day Ever!

I just have to share with you a little sneek peak from this lovely wedding!

 The ceremony was held in a beautiful church in Dublin, The Newman University Church, it’s so unusual inside and a really cool place to visit. Afterwards we all walked through Stephens Green and on to The Shelbourne where the staff were so attentive and lovely, this gorgeous hotel is such an established place, deep rooted in Dublin history, I really enjoyed spending the day there.  What can I say about my bride and groom?! these two loved up people welcomed me into their family to share this special moment in their life, the speeches gave me a lump in my throat, the personal touches throughout the day were really lovely and I’m so happy they chose me as their photographer.  🙂

By the Lake..

A lake carries you into recesses of feeling otherwise impenetrable..William Wordsworth. 

I met Jo after taking some photos of  the wedding band she sings in The Moog69’s, ( they are brilliant check them out!) she came to me looking for new photos for her website and solo church side of things, so we had a chat over a coffee, clicked straight away and started planning. She was very open to ideas and naturally goes with a bit of a rock chick vibe, I like to try to push things a little out of the ordinary but still stay in that comfort zone so it’s not forced and unnatural, so after talking to Jo I knew Jill would be brilliant at bringing all of our ideas together, more coffee… loads of ideas.. we always tend to go waaaaay beyond the brief, get super excited then nail it down to something not too scary! So off we went to Glendalough one morning, it was an awesome day outside in the cold, wandering around the beautiful lake and playing in the trees, it was really fun! and this is what happened…….

 I did share a few photos before but I love them so much I had to show you some more, It would be the perfect romantic spot for an engagement shoot or even a family portrait session with the kids splashing by the water.

Thanks to Jill for her styling on the day and to Jo for being so good at standing in cold water!!

Gorgeous (…and cold) Glendalough

Heres a little teaser from a stunning outdoor shoot i did this weekend with the lovely Jo for her new website.

I arrived in the morning with Jill who i often collaborate with and was styling for the day, check out her website for more about her .  We wandered up to the lake and it was absolutely breathtaking, the water was still, there were low clouds in the valley and it was quiet, although a bit chilly! It was everything id hoped for when planning the shoot so i was super excited to see what we could get up to!

We had several outfit changes in the day, lots of cold water to contend with and plenty of tourists watching us, Jo did so well taking all my directions!!  Heres a small taster of the shoot…
