Focus on - Details of Your Day

It will have taken months to plan your big day. So many things to think about to make your day special and personal to yourselves. Which is why I just love to document all of the details of your day.

I particularly like photographing details of your venue. These little things are often what attracts you to the venue in the first place.

Often, if you don't have photos while you're getting ready, your shoes can get missed - unless you flash a peek of them from under your dress! This was taken "on the hoof" as the bride was getting out of the car.

Up-coming Wedding Fairs 2012

Wedding Fair

Just thought I'd let you know the up-coming wedding fairs that I will be attending soon.

Sunday 4th March 11am-3pm

Sunday 11th March 12noon-3pm

Sunday 18th March 11am-3pm

Wedding fairs are a great opportunity to look at many different wedding suppliers under one roof. It's especially useful when looking for a photographer as you get see their work and meet the photographer in person. So hopefully I'll see you at one of the venues to have a chat! Gillian.

Focus on ~ Colour themes - Black and White

Living and working in Newcastle upon Tyne, you would think I'd photograph a lot of weddings with a black and white colour theme. I don't often, but when it's done, it looks really classic and sophisticated.

The mums were also in the black and white colour theme.

Quite by accident, the floor of the photo booth that they hired was black and white chequerboard! I spotted the bridesmaid's shoe with the bow for a cute pic.

Thanks for looking.

An organised mother of the bride with a list of what to take in each car. I think they remembered everything! The father certainly made his speech.
