Becky & Mark, Shearsby Bath, Leicestershire

What a scorcher of a day for Becky & Mark’s recent wedding at Shearsby Bath Leicestershire.  I had visited Shearsby Bath earlier in the year to take some pre wedding shots of the couple, but it was very much still winter and freezing cold.  It was really lovely to see the venue again in the summer, in full bloom and looking fantastic.  Preparations began at the Ullesthorpe Hotel with Becky and her bridesmaids, followed by a beautiful and emotive ceremony at Shearsby Bath.  Mark was definitely one of the most nervous grooms I have ever encountered – however his two best men were definitely there to support him all the way.

My biggest challenge of the day?  A little pageboy who was adamant he would not be photographed.  Needless to say, I wouldn’t be beaten and he appears in the final set of images quite a lot (although mostly shots taken with my zoom lens…).  Kids hey?

A few images of this amazing wedding day below. 01

The New Home for Lesley Bee at Artography is almost complete…

The fantastic Goddard building (or Atkins site as it is more affectionately known)  is soon to be the new home for Lesley Bee at Artography.  Situated in the centre of  Hinckley on Lower Bond Street,  the fantastic Grade 2 listed Goddard Building will become a central hub for ‘Creative Hinckley’    (check out the website for more information). Alongside work spaces, there is a contemporary exhibition / gallery space and a cafe bar.   Tall windows allow light to flood into the spaces and it has been sympathetically restored to embrace the original features along with a contemporary edge.  This site will also incorporate the new college building which is being constructed on the land to the rear of the site.  Check out some photographs below.

I am very excited to be moving into such a beautiful building and also to work alongside other creative people.  I am sure that it will be great fun…

Lesley Bee at Artography offers boudoir photography for every woman and a  photography session like this might just change the way you see yourself…   You may wish to book  this portrait experience  just for you to experience an opportunity to feel amazing.   However it is also the perfect  gift for the one you love.  Beautiful, sensual, discreet photography to show off  and celebrate your curves in the company of a female photographer.  This photography session was great fun and my aim is to create images that are discreet and elegant.    A couple of  brides have already booked this session as a unique wedding day gift for their husbands.     The shots featured here were taken at home, however I can also offer this photography session in the studio.  IMG_2760IMG_2784IMG_2528IMG_2607

Quote from the lady featured in these shots:  “I love my photographs so much.  I have never had my photographs taken professionally before and I want to do it all over again.”
