Penguins!

 

And now for  something a little different… My very talented friend Anna Maltz knitter and pattern maker extraordinaire asked me to take some photos for her latest project, a book of knitting patterns inspired by penguins! It was so much fun to work on passion project with such an inspiring creative soul and to help her vision come to life.  I  love how the photos came out and the book has been very well received by the knitting world :) Now I just have to dust off my needles and get practicing.

Laura and Stuart’s autumnal london wedding

On a day like Laura and Stuart’s wedding day in November, when the light is just about as low and perfect as it can get, turning everything golden, I remember why autumn weddings are so great.

I alway love seeing how couples personalise their wedding days. Laura and Stuart told me that they had a surprise planned for their ceremony.

Laura’s Dad is Welsh and so they had arranged for the London Welsh male voice choir to sing. There is just something about hearing people sing in glorious 3 part harmony that really chokes me up. The minute these guys started in the church I felt the hairs on the back of my neck stand up and my eyes filled with tears. I could barely see for the rest of the ceremony. This wasn’t helped by the fact that Laura’s sweet dad was clearly delighted buy the surprise and sang his heart out along with the choir , with a huge grin on his face.

Later on at the reception (held at the Amadeus centre) she out did herself and surprised Stuart with short animated film she’d had made about them!  (tears again) What a lovely thoughtful pair!

Katy and Simon pre-wedding shoot.

Question: What do you do if you are super nervous in front of the camera and worried that getting photos done on your wedding day will take you away from the action for too long?? Answer: Book a pre wedding shoot! Thats what Katy and Simon did. This was a first for me but it was actually a great idea. These two were convinced that they the worlds most unphotogenic people and they were nervous that the pressure of trying to get decent pictures in the very limited time frame on a wedding day would only make for more tortured expressions. So they contacted me with the idea of doing something like a dress rehearsal, with just the 2 of them before the big day… and it was really fun! Not only did Katy get to practise walking in her killer Jimmy Choos and slinky floor length gown, but I got to spend a bit more time that I usually do with my clients so by they time the wedding day came around we were old mates!…. here are some of the pictures ( you’d never know they were camera shy).

Hannah and Mark – in a purple haze

These two were such good sports considering the arctic temperatures we woke to on the morning of the shoot.  It may have been a bitterly cold, wintery , gloomy AND a Sunday but damn-it we didn’t let that deter us.

Hannah and Mark are both born South Londoners and are into their culture in a big way, so it seemed fitting that we find a location in the heart of London, that was all about culture for the backdrop of their shoot. When we first started discussing locations the Southbank immediately sprung to mind as a favourite spot for all of us.

We started on the roof of their london flat for a little practice and had fun turning the sky purple ( yes we really did!)  Then we wrapped up warm and headed out to the South Bank for a wander and some more photos…
