Wow so it's been a LOT longer than I thought since I last posted about an afternoon tea (bit hard when you're trying to follow Slimming World!) BUT after a few months of being Afternoon tea free I'm back filling my diary up with lots more to adventure to and share here for you to see! First up I headed to Leigh-on-Sea and through the wardrobe for a Narnia Christmas tea at Mad Dogs and Englishmen!
Are you a creative business, brand or blogger? Need new headshots? Well, look no further! I definitely offer a more unconventional approach to business headshots in the way that they’re not too formal or business like.
Autumn is fully upon us now and I've put together some mini photography sessions - these sessions last 20-30 minutes (so children don't get bored!) and provide great Christmas presents for nans and granddads etc! You could even use them to make personalised Christmas cards or calender's!
A few weeks ago me & Johnny decided to go on an adventure to Foxes Farm & Produce in Basildon and pick out some pumpkins! Firstly if you're at a loss for something to do on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon in October then I would totally recommend going pumpkin picking! You don't have to pay an entry fee (you just pay for whatever pumpkins you buy!) and the actual cost of the pumpkins is super reasonable and being able to walk round a huge field and pick your own ideal pumpkin makes the experience super fun!
Other than your venue & catering photography is most couples biggest expense, because once the prosecco has been drunk & the cakes been eaten the main memory of your day is your photos. I’m a huge advocate for printing photos, I personally print all my holiday photos and make scrapbooks (which I am planning on sharing at some point soon!) You simply cannot compare the images you see on a screen to a proper, professionally printed photograph (trying saying that after 5 G&T’s!)
Happy Autumn! If you follow me over on Instagram you've probably started to notice I'm already embracing Autumn (my second favourite season, Winter is no. 1 obvs). So I thought it was perfect time to share some Autumn wedding inspiration in the way of Michelle & Aarons Rustic wedding at The Fennes, Bocking, in October of last year. Fennes is a beautiful Essex wedding venue that I've been luckily enough to photograph at a few times now and each time I find new places inside the house or in the beautiful grounds.
If you've followed me for a while on any form of social media you may have seen me talking about my love for stationary - So I must admit I'm forever lusting over invites & stationary at weddings (or on Pinterest & Instagram). There is SO much out there but today I'm sharing a few of my favourite suppliers and styles at the moment!
Back with another installment in my afternoon tea adventures, this time i'm sharing the ultimate in super kawaii kitty cat teas and that's the Hello Kitty afternoon tea at Cutter and Squidge.
For a bride, when beginning to plan her wedding one of the most continuous thoughts (and most asked about questions from friends!) is finding 'The Dress'. Long? Short? White? Ivory? There are so many things to think about when considering what dress you want. Theres also a LOT of choice out there so whilst it can be a good thing, it can also make the search for the perfect dress very stressful!
Being a wedding photographer that loves to photograph alternative weddings I’ve seen some awesome stuff! Being an alternative wedding photographer based in Essex however I have noticed there is still some sense of stereotyping that goes on. I’ve heard people say that they wanted “XY&Z” but couldn’t find the suppliers, or the venue suggested they do this that way, or florist didn’t understand the concept they wanted and ultimately gave in to tradition… I’m here to tell you can totally cut up that rule book, flick away that sterotype and have the day that YOU want, especially in Essex!
