40th Birthday Celebration – Great Fun…

Last Saturday we spent a few hours with Lesley and her family photographing her 40th Birthday party in her gigantic back garden.   It had rained during the morning so we had to keep our fingers crossed for better weather later in the day.  Thankfully, the sun shined from late afternoon onwards.

To say that Lesley is a bit bonkers is an under statement, but she has a real sunny nature and it was obvious at her party that she is a popular girl and very much loved by her family and friends.  When we first arrived at about 5pm there were around 40 guests.  By the time we left at about 9pm there were probably 100 plus family and friends in the garden.  It was a shame to leave just as the party really was warming up.  We have since been told it went on until 5am in the morning!

We had a fantastic time and were made to feel very welcome by everybody.  We even managed to grab a burger from the barbecue before we left – yummy!

Below is a selection of images from the occasion.  Lesley has over 240 final images to view.

Pre Wedding Shoot – Shirley & Gareth

We recently met up with Shirley and Gareth and their two lovely children for a pre wedding shoot at their chosen venue  The Bosworth Hall Hotel .  Time was limited as the children had to get home for lunch etc but we managed to take a few relaxed, informal shots of the family.  Their wedding is still a little way off in September but it was great for us to have a catch up with the family.

Bosworth Hall is set in 11 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens and woodland a fantastic venue for a wedding.   You can take a look at their website here http://www.hotelbosworthhall.co.uk/

Pre Wedding Shoot – Bethan & Jon

We recently met up with Bethan and Jon at Noseley Hall for their pre wedding shoot.  We feel it is important to meet with our wedding couples at least a couple of times before the wedding day.   It gives us a chance to catch up on the arrangements for the day and to spend some time with the couple.   The last thing we want is to be strangers on the most important day of their lives.    A pre wedding shoot is included in our album packages and really helps in building up a relationship between us and the clients.  Bethan is such a natural beauty and has a stunning smile.  She will certainly be a bride with the WOW factor.    Both Bethan and Jon are laid back and easy going and we are really looking forward to being part of their special day. 

They have chosen a fantastic venue in Leicestershire for their wedding in August.  Noseley Hall was built by Sir Arthur Hazlerigg in 1729, in an exceptional position overlooking the famous rolling Leicestershire grasslands. The Hall has stunning panoramic views and the house is still the private home of the Hazlerigg family who have lived on the site since 1419.  Click here to visit the website http://www.noseleyhall.co.uk/

Who could ask for more – a stunning bride in a stunning location!!   We just can’t wait…
