Crazy Couple of Weeks – A week full of Firsts !

Hello there,

Well as I mentioned in my last blog post, its been pretty crazy around here recently.  Its also weeks like the past couple of weeks that keeps me shooting weddings !

I have shot well over 400 weddings to date yet in the past 2 weeks I have seen things I have never seen at a wedding before and have enjoyed the weddings so much so I thought I would share – often these pictures are not the best photos, they are not the ‘Signature Images’ or great shots of the couples getting married BUT they are shots that the couple have spent hours planning and shots which have great meaning  for the couple.

Me, I am always amazed at what I will see at my next wedding.

2 weekends ago it was Easter and on Saturday I was shooting the wedding of Tracy and Russel, well they had lots of children at their wedding and it was very obvious that family was very very important to them – just after the meal in the down time between the meal and the evening starting, a very special guest turned up to say hello to the kids, it was the Easter Bunny !

at the same weddings, one set of their friends could not make it because they were also getting married so we made a quick dash for the beach and met up with them

This past Saturday just after the first dance (normally when I leave unless there are fireworks or lanterns etc) the couple (Kay and Andi) had arranged for ‘Bag’s’ the fire eater to put on a show ! – I have to tell you this was an amazing show and Bags is such a great entertainer

Kay and Andi also put on an amazing day, at one point there was a mini fish and chip supper (was going to be on the beach but it was a bit cold and raining) – then after this was some really nice ice cream from Icicle Tricylc Wales http://www.icicletricyclewales.co.uk

and last but not least is probably the most amazing wedding cake I have seen – this cake was made by the grandmother of the bride and took around 6 months to make.  I have never seen such an intricate cake in my whole time shooting weddings !

ever single grain of sand, stone, pebble, shell, starfish and the cake its self were  painstakingly made and were edible

last but not least is the venue shot from my wedding 2 weeks ago at Tunnel Beach in Devon, I have never shot a venue that looks like something from a James Bond movie before, this venue was carved into the rocks, well thats what it looked like !
