Handbag Dog

A cute little doggy in a designer handbag.  Well OK, it's not actually a handbag, more of a handbag style dog carrier, but it was definitely designer because the cute little doggy was worth it.

The Human Kangaroo

You know your wedding is going well when your guests burst into spontaneous Skippy impressions, bounding across the lawn, full of fun, laughter and gaiety... or it may just have been a run in with a wasp:


Whatever the cause, he reached some pretty impressive heights!  From Nadine and Dan's wedding at Sole Street House, Faversham, Kent.

Cuckmere Haven Peace Camp


After I'd finished at Kim and Glenn's wedding at Deans Place last night I went over to see the Peace Camp at Cuckmere Haven.  The Peace Camp is an art installation consisting of a large number of domed tents which are lit up at night, with music playing and recorded voices reciting poetry - all very surreal, but surprisingly impressive. 





I'd missed the best of the light by about 20 minutes, it was almost totally black when I arrived.  It's a shame it is on for so short a time though - one weekend only.

50 Shades of Marriage?

Yes, they are having their hands tied together but, no, I'm sorry it's not actually an example of marital bondage high-jinks.  It's just one of a great many Slovakian wedding traditions I've come across over the past few years.  In this one the Bride and Groom have to share a bowl of soup with their hands tied to encourage them to work as a team - which I think is a lovely idea:


I don't know for sure, but I suspect we have probably lost a few wedding traditions like this over the centuries which seems a shame and it's great to see them being kept alive in Europe - I won't even go into traditional German wedding games, but if you ever get the chance to go the a German wedding don't hesitate - just do it!

Musical Rose

A single pink buttonhole rose on a piano keyboard.  As well as being a lovely venue in one of the most beautiful villages in Sussex, I love all the handy props they provide at the Star!

Long Walk Back

One of the advantages of walking back down the aisle in what, at 311ft, is the longest parish church in England is that there is plenty of time for everyone to see how happy you are:

Blue Dome

With the way the weather has been so far this year the dome of the temple at Cole Court is probably the only way to ensure that you have something blue over your head on your wedding day:

Window Light

A few quiet moment to reflect minutes before the start of the wedding ceremony.  Solely lit by light reflected from the window sill:

Back in Time

A couple of weeks ago I was in Dorset again to photograph a birthday party at the home of my very first Civil Partnership couple.  This photograph (which I had forgotten I'd printed for them - it was six years ago after all) has pride of place in the hall at about 30" x 20" and looks absolutely stunning, almost 3-dimensional:


Looking at images on a computer doesn't come close to seeing them when they have been printed by a professional lab and then properly mounted and framed though so you'll just have to try and imagine it, sorry!

Hey, Let's Do It Again!

Or possibly the little flower girl has decided that recycling the confetti is the green way to go - second-hand confetti now available on Ebay?

Surreal Veil

I love veils.  Not in a spending Wednesday evenings prancing around with the net curtains sort of way, but I mean photographically - you get some fantastic effects from them.  As well as wearing an amazing dress, Gillian's wrap-around veil was stunning:
