Beautiful Bordeaux, beautiful people, beautiful memories !

WELL ! Its been an AMAZING week ! Friday and Saturday I was fortunate enough to be at the FABULOUS Fanhams Hall to capture two wonderful weddings (images to follow) and was there again on Sunday to meet lots of equally fabulous people to chat about their own upcoming weddings ! BLISS !

Monday started early but for a VERY good reason, I was off to Bordeaux to photograph Samantha and Bertrand’s wedding. There are some places in the world that make you wonder if you are actually alive and there because they are just so pretty and this was certainly the case on Monday. Everything about the place was just so effortlessly beautiful which meant Sam and Bert fitted in with EASE ! Bert said something to me that resonated. We walked past a photographers and he said “they were your competition but with you we just gelled” and I LOVE that ! I love that people recognize the personal and passionate way I go about what I do even before they have seen me do what I said I would on their OWN day. I genuinely love every second of what I do and even when those seconds turned into 21 hours (!) on Monday I was still buzzing when I wandered back to the hotel. Photography has a way of freezing a moment in time so that those precious moments stay clear long after our memories become fuzzy and its for that reason I treat what I do with respect but also with true passion and a want to do it in such a way that people actually ENJOY the process ! Cameras are to photography what pens are to poetry, simply a tool to record a creative and beautiful creation and I will personally never want to stop doing what I love to do so dearly.

Thank you Sam and Bert, I look forward to going through ALL your pix but here’s a taster in the meantime !

Kaley and Dennis at the fabulous Essendon Country Club

Kaley and Dennis were not only beautiful people to photograph today but they were so genuine, grateful, decent and supreme examples that having good parents creates good parents. The whole day was bliss. There was no panic and no fuss, it was ‘simply’ 2 people clearly madly in love coming together to do what couldn’t be more natural ! There was just smile after smile, the odd tear, friends giving a million hugs, parents looking on (justifiably) with pride and a real sense that their love is a very modern day love story with a classic feel too. A sign of just how decent people they are came when Kaley made a point of standing up during the speeches to make ONE thank you, to Jo Newell. She then asked Jo to come down and presented her with a bunch of flowers for all the care and listening to them so that on the day the wedding was everything Kaley had perhaps dreamed of as a little girl. Jo looked after every aspect of the day to ensure it ran smoother than silk could ever hope to be ! Andy made sure everyone (including Daniel the toastmaster and I) received their unbelievably delicious meals on time and perfectly cooked. Its a joy to watch such a finely tuned ‘machine’ doing its thing but rather than it feel like a computer controlled technical supercar it felt more like a purring V8 !!! All in all, Kaley and Dennis and Essendon Country Club made sure my count of fabulous 2015 weddings had another addition !

The fabulous Greek wedding of Vaso and Paul, how to do it in STYLE !!!

Sunday was the day after my amazing day at Hatfield House and I was looking forward to an equally fabulous day – and I certainly got just that ! I arrived to photograph Vaso getting ready for her Big Day and was immediately hit with a wave of Greek hospitality, food being ‘forced’ into me (me being the gent I am I obviously obliged with NO fuss !) and a house full of people who brought a house full of LOVE with them ! Andy arrived with his violin and the traditional ceremonies began. The music and singing was captivating and hypnotic. Various family members came to take part in a variety of different customary rituals. The thing I loved was the feeling that as the bride’s mother came to take part she knew exactly what to do because she remembered her own wedding day and Vaso will perhaps find herself in the same position one day too. There was a real feeling that the wedding was a moment in Greek history, the next generation getting married. The Ceremony took part at St. Mary’s Cathedral and the traditional feelings continued. Later on traditional Greek music provided by Millennium made sure that if people WERE sat down it was because they’d either danced too hard or fell over in the process ! The final traditional aspect of the day I felt was that each and every person was there because they loved Vaso and Paul and as in generations gone by, they knew how to party !
