The other weekend I jumped in the mumbus and headed up the M6, singing very loudly (and badly) along to the Greatest Showman. My destination was Keele, where I met the lovely Sally and Ben. These guys are getting married in January, but their story actually started at Keele University. So this was the perfect location for an engagement shoot. The grounds around the university are stunning and Ben and Sally were so easy to work with. I cannot wait for the wedding. Roll on January. Here's a little teaser from the shoot...
Just over a week ago I got in my car (also known as the Mum Bus!), sang loudly along to One Direction (I am so use to playing this on every car journey due to my very demanding 4 year old) and headed over the border into the beautiful, idilic (but a little bit wet) Wales. I arrived at a stunning barn conversion with views to die for and was greeted by such a lovely family. The Hodsons!
It was a big family affair. The Grandparents (Joan & Barry), their son (Richard) and daughter (Jennie) and their partners (Lindsey & Andy) and all the grandchildren (Beth, Lara, Baylian and Bodhi). Lindsey had contacted me earlier in the year as she was interested in my 'Hometown Story' package after seeing her sisters family photos I had taken in and around their Shropshire home.
So when I arrived the whole troop donned their wellies and we all took a walk (and run and jump and piggy back ride) around the beautiful countryside surrounding the home. It was a bit overcast but we managed somehow to avoid the rain. Everyone was up for a bit of fun and I think the kids rather enjoyed racing their grandparents (and probably vice versa).
Here's just a few from our morning together ... ...
What an amazing sunny weekend for a spectacular royal wedding. Unfortunately I was not invited but I was invited to the Shropshire Wedding Fayre at Brook Cottages and Camping. Organised by the fantastic Bouquet & Bells, I met some lovely people, both couples and suppliers.
From horsebox bars to florists and photographers to tipis and yurts, there are plenty of companies that could make your special day even more special. If you couldn’t make it down and you are still looking for the perfect suppliers for your wedding then here’s a few pics from the weekend to see what you missed.
Florists: The Floral Studio, Keepsake Bridal.
Garden Games: The Shropshire Garden Party.
Singers: Something from the Hart.
Food: Popup Shrop, Tuskys Burger Factory.
Face Glitter / Art: Feather & Fox.
