Pet Photography - Sort of...

Actually I ended up spending a day doggy sitting for some friends and decided that I might as well do some dog portraits as they were rather cute looking (the dogs that is).

They were incredibly quiet for most of the day, a lot of sleeping, a spot of light lunch, asking to go out every so often as good doggies do, all very relaxing really.

Things were going well until late afternoon ,when a family walking past had the audacity to stop at the front gate for some reason or other.  This sent both dogs into a wild frenzy of running around, jumping up and down and barking their heads off.   In trying to catch them and calm them down I somehow managed to get their squeaky toy pig stuck to the sole of my foot, which gave an almighty oink whenever I took a step and whipped them up into an even greater frenzy, this time centred on me rather than the poor family outside. Fortunately Nina helped out enormously by laughing so much that it eventually calmed them down... thank you for that dearest.

On the other hand this little thing is an entirely different kettle of dog - a miniature dachshund to be more specific.  Don't let his innocent little face and big googly eyes fool you, he's into everything (particularly tongues into ears) and doesn't he stop for a minute. 

I did find it interesting to note that he is exactly he same size as a small baguette though, I wonder if that's why they're called sausage dogs? 

Now where did I put that jar of mustard...

Lorna and Jon's Wedding at St Mark's and Pembroke Lodge

Lorna and Jon were another nice referral and they had their wedding at St Mark's Church in Battersea with their wedding reception at Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park.  Lorna got ready with her family at a friends flat just around the corner from the church and used a traditional London black cab to get to the ceremony.

St Mark's is a lovely big church and as it was a pretty cold day we decided to do the group shots inside, much to everyone's relief!

With the ceremony over, we were off to their wedding reception at Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park and a few evening photo's outside when we arrived.

Pembroke Lodge is a lovely wedding venue, right on the top of the hill with fabulous views over Richmond.  One of the most striking features is the lighting that has been installed inside, lots of blue yellow and green which gives an incredibly colourful effect!

The disco was provided by Gareth Walton of GJ's Discos.  I had come across Gareth previously at Mary and Nick's wedding in Leatherhead and he is one of the best I have seen, very professional and he really knows how to get people onto the dance floor!
