Well, a busy week for me. I finished a wedding album - shortly to be winging its way to Graphistudio in Italy.

I worked my one shift at the hospital, and received a letter today saying congrats on my long service there - 25 I want to attend an awards ceremony. I think I will and I may or may not speak my mind about Hospital care today compared to 1982 when I started my training!

I do still enjoy making a difference to patients lives so I expect I'll keep on nursing for the near future anyway!

My buzz comes from the weddings though and I'm looking forward to the next wedding whch is fast approaching.

I'm very much looking forward to meeting a cousin on Sunday. We have got in touch via I think we are 3rd cousins, on my maternal grandmother's side. I'm so excited to go and meet Louise.

Just for the record, here are my maternal great grandma and great grandad on their wedding day in 1902. Sarah Hannah Stott and Willie Wood.

I'm off to bed now as it's very early in the morning! I had a great photography meet with Zoe, Ioan and Ian today at the scrumptious Mulberry Tree in Wrightington. Rushed home to make a meal for Colin and Helena who came over to see all their wedding photos!

Helena and Colin's wedding on Loch Ness

We flew to Inverness for Colin and Helena's wedding, and had a thoroughtly good time at The Loch Ness Clansman Hotel .

We sadly didn't see the Loch Ness Monster, but it didn't stop us having a fab time!

Colin and Helenagot married on the Jacobite Legend whilst enjoying a cruise of Loch Ness. Photos at Urquhart Castle followed, then a delicious wedding breakfast at The Clansman.

I wonder if I'll be able to persuade Helena to jump in Loch Ness for a Trash The Dress session after the wedding?? Hmmmm.........

A wedding at Loch Ness!

We will be away this week attending a friend's wedding in Bonnie Scotland.

They are marrying on a boat on Loch Ness, so it is all very exciting!

I'm not sure if we will have internet access, so if I don't respond to you it's not because Nessie appeared!!

The photos were taken in beautiful Walkden Gardens - and I well recommend a visit!
Louise looked simply stunning, and Paul didn't look too bad himself!

Congratulations to you both.

Cats and other things...

Hi all,

I've been busy in the studio this week. I've posted Natasha and Dan's wedding album and Samantha and Jon's wedding proofs out, so there will be some happy customers today!

I've booked a photoshoot and I'm seeing a prospective bride and groom tomorrow.

Anyway, here's a photo of my 3 cats. It is especially for Miss Kahlilla Blyss, who is not feeling very well. Please spare a moment to visit her website and leave her and her lovely family some prayers and thoughts.
Thankyou, Debbie.

Learning to blog!

My first post on this new blog. I do have an existing blog on my website, but thought I'd upgrade. I'm just getting used to it, so please bear with me.

Today I'm doing Louise and Paul's engagement shoot; taking portraits of three lovely sisters and working hard to get Sam and Jon their wedding photos ready. Here's a taster...
