BUMF Gallery - 'Here, There and Everywhere' Exhibition

There is nothing I love more than a collaboration of fine artists exhibiting extraordinary work! Tonight at the BUMF Gallery at AUCB I was not disappointed. Six incredibly talented designers showcased their work and ideas in an exhibit named 'Here, There and Everywhere' in which we saw textiles inspired by home and travel. Each collection based on locations including Berlin, Venice and London among many. Our favourite collection was by designer Sarah Appleton, who's work sought inspiration from London's architecture and the subtheme of the suffragette movement in Mary Poppins. Sarah, certainly a designer to watch for the future wowed us with her vision and talent. Watch this space 😊

Today's woodland bump shoot with Rachel and Sam :)

 Today I got to spend an hour with the lovely Rachel and Sam in the woodlands at Rhinefield Ornamental drive. We managed to dodge most of the rain and got some gorgeous rustic photos of them and Rachel's baby bump :) How cute do they both look? I can't wait to photograph their bundle of joy when he or she arrives X

Mr & Mrs Callaway & Their Rustic New Year Wedding At Sopley Mill

Yesterday was my first wedding of the year and wow what a wedding it was! I started off by heading to bride Karen's house for the bridal prep, which was mostly girls looking very glam whilst sitting in their pj's eating pancakes :)

I then went on to Sopley Mill where groom Matthew was ready and waiting for guests to arrive for their intimate rustic ceremony. Sopley Mill really still is one of my favourite venues, having photographed a lot there in 2015, it's charm and rustic décor makes the perfect setting for any wedding.

The ceremony was just beautiful with delicate lighting and a blue and silver winter colour scheme. The rain managed to hold off too as we got through our wedding checklist of photographs outside and then later on to a hot chocolate bar, champagne and wood burning fire inside. Heartfelt speeches and a few shapes on the dancefloor later it was time to cut the cake and to party the rest of the night away as husband and wife.

Thanks for having me Karen and Matthew - huge congratulations! I can't wait to edit the rest of your gorgeous photographs.
