MY FAVOURITE THINGS IN LIFE
Finding a wedding photographer whose work you love is very important of course. But what’s also important is that you get along, as they will be there throughout your whole wedding day. So with that in mind, here is a list including some of my favourite things.
My best friend, rock, travel companion, comedian, occasional second shooter, and above all, absolute biggest fan, my love, Joe. We met in 2014 and have spent 6 years full of fun, laughter, love and the most amazing adventures around the world. Without forgetting the struggles, fights and times that we thought would break us, but with good communication and trust, our bond only grew stronger. When I need encouragement, he’s right there firing me up to get on with it. When I’m tired, there he is with a tea or some chocolate to keep me going! When I’m down, he’s there to push me forwards and see the beauty in my work and achievements. He is quite literally more than I ever could have asked for. I can’t thank him enough for his patience and drive in supporting this business to be a success.
One of my favourite ways to spend time is with my family. I’m fortunate to have a large family, half in England and half in Scotland. I have 2 brothers, 2 sister-in-laws and my aunt’s daughters, who I grew up with, are like sisters too. I spoil all of my nieces and nephews to days out and try to fulfil all their crazy requests. I’d class that as the cool auntie right?! On the rare occasion that I don’t have work on the weekend – it’s either date night or spending the evening with the girls. We used to dress up, go for cocktails, catch up & dance the night away. But nowadays, we’re more likely to go round each others in the comfiest loungewear we can find, have dinner and catch up over a bottle of wine and a film!
My little patterdale terrior, Olly, is now a silver fox aged 13. Although I am allergic to animal fur, this hasn’t stopped me! I’ve had hamsters, rabbits, and dogs! Olly is the sweetest, most gentleman-like dog you will ever meet. If he were a person, he would be the one always looking smart dressed in a suit, reading a newspaper in the corner chair, just like my grandad did.
I love to explore new places, be that when I’m in a new area for a destination wedding or just exploring the uk. Waking up, eating breakfast in a sweet little cafe then strolling beautiful streets discovering hidden finds and beautiful spots, preferably in the warmer months is a perfect day for me. After travelling many corners of the world, no matter when you ask, I will always have another adventure lined up!
With an eye for detail and styling, I love redesigning spaces. I am constantly rearranging or redecorating rooms and am inspired by bright, airy and minimalist Scandinavian trends.
I have one of the most diverse tastes for music than most. From chart to indie, from reggae to motown, I love it all! For one of my birthdays, Joe took me to a jazz bar in San Francisco for a surprise and that was most definitely the best night of my life. Incredible music playing right in front of us, great food & in love in San Francisco, what more could a girl ask for?
I have a love for the cinema, film and theatre. There is something pure about witnessing stories unfolding into perfectly crafted cinematography that makes me happy. One of my favourite spots to do this is curled up in front of the telly with a cosy blanket, warm tea and pack of chocolate digestive biscuits! With Olly usually curled up at my feet.
It sounds cliche but I honestly am so passionate about my work and all things wedding. I love knowing all the details and everyone’s individual story and style. With a past in event planning, I use my spare time to plan and co-ordinate styled shoot collaborations which are very similar to weddings. I collaborate with my favourite suppliers to create inspirational content to inspire couples getting married. Working in the industry, we are constantly following trends and love to inspire couples with new and innovative ways to create beautiful memories for your guests to remember your special day. From details such as the dessert table and fine accessories to how to style your tables and favours for guests etc. Please find my inspiration section in my blogs and discover lots of prettiness!
