Hellen & Mat's Wedding
Jo and I have been looking forward to Matt and Helen's wedding all year and it didn't disappoint! We were up nice and early to shoot the Chinese tea ceremony where the bride and groom exchange a cup of tea for money and gold! We then drove over to the beautiful Old Vicarage at Southwell for the English wedding, a quick dress change for the bride before the formal ceremony. The weather was kind and allowed us time to take some photos in the lovely grounds with their beloved "bug". Another dress change before the evening reception.... lucky bride says Jo! A big thank you to Helen's Mum and Dad, who made us so welcome at their home for the Chinese ceremonies.
Congratulations Guys.

Summer's Cake Smash
What better way to celebrate Summer's 1st Birthday ?
A Cake Smash of course.
The aim was to try & get a few pictures of her in her lovely dress
before it got all messed up ,but she had other ideas - she just wanted
to get at the cake.
Didn't take her long to mess up my studio ,but she enjoyed it.
Happy Birthday Summer.
