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!

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.  🙂

Trudder Lodge Wedding fun.

Here’s a little peek into a fab wedding from last week in the beautiful setting of Trudder Lodge in Newtownmountkennedy ( the longest place name in ireland…)

 After nearly a week of lovely warm sunshine the rain started to pour down on Friday and didnt stop, you can imagine how gutted I felt when I realised we wouldnt be doing many photos in the Monsoon outside!!  My bride and groom were absolutely calm and nothing was going to spoil their day!!  We are in Ireland after all!

 It was a very relaxed day, from the minute i was welcomed into the family home in Dublin until the end of the night when the band were rocking,  it was such a lovely day. I loved all the personal details,  Adam made his own homebrew especially for the day and Laura had Converse for dancing the night away in, the wedding cake was a family tradition birthday cake and its really those little things are what make your day really special to you.

 Thankyou to Laura and Adam for letting me be part of their day. 🙂
