Ladybird’s Launch Party at Heist Bank

Ladybird’s Launch Party at Heist Bank Paddington Central

Ladybird’s Launch Party at Heist Bank (an amazing bar in Paddington) was such a great evening. As you know, I am full of praise for Emma Soulsby and have worked with her a few times, including shooting her lookbook a few months ago (blog post coming very soon). She is so talented and creates some of the most amazing arrangements for weddings and other events, so when Emma announced that she was opening a small store in the new development of Paddington Central, I knew I would have to shoot this new venture of hers.

Ladybird Flowers was taking her love of flowers and plants to another level and selling unique arrangements and potted plants that I have never seen in a conventional florist before. Sharing a space in the new bar; Heist Bank, the partnership between them just go together like Pizza-Beer-Flowers.

It was a wonderful night and want to congratulate Emma, Ladybird Flowers & Heist Bank on their new businesses and wish them every success in the future

Just a few images as promise from the wonderful night, but I would suggest that if you are ever in the area, I would definitely give it a visit. Have a beer or two, eat a pizza (the Smoked sausage, fried potatoes, sage, and chilli ones looks and smells amazing) and make sure you buy a flower or plant or both

London Fine Art Engagement Photography – Millie & Steven’s Proposal

I love a marriage proposal shoot, but this one involved an undercover mission to rival any!  This London Fine Art Engagement Photography shoot for Millie & Steven’s Proposal contained everything as if  it was from a romantic, and dramatic movie. But this was the real deal.

It all started when Steven got in touch on the day that he was going to propose with this creative plan about how and where he wanted to propose to the beautiful Millie.

Steven & Millie, who love to travel,  write a letter to each other whilst on their journey about their traveling experiences. So the plan was that Steven was going to write a letter about London, but with a twist. In this letter, Steven was going to ask Millie for her hand is marriage.

Fast forward to the evening of the special day; it started with Steven taking Millie out for dinner,  whilst I had the important assignment of picking up the extra special letter from their hotel. I was to place the letter on the steps of the statue of Eros in Piccadilly Circus, Central London. As legends go, it is said that if you propose under the statue on the stroke of midnight, it would bring you eternal luck in your marriage. So there I was at 11:30, in the pouring rain (and I mean it was pouring), setting myself up in the right position so that I wouldn’t be noticed by Millie taking pictures of her and also keeping an eye on the letter so that no one would accidentally pick it up.

Around 11:50, not knowing what Steven or Millie looked like, I noticed a couple approach the theatre next to the statue and pointing at it. I quickly understood that this was the couple, when they started to walk towards, and pointing at, the letter. I moved back into my “tourist taking pictures of the Billboards'” position and started shooting away, firstly capturing Millie reading the letter and then… Well, I will let my images tell the rest of the story.

Despite the pouring rain, which I think added to the drama, it was a moment not to be missed. To see Steven go down on one knee and the reaction of Millie was amazing. Congrats Millie & Steven, you make a wonderful couple xxx

Surrey Fine Art Wedding – Sophie & Lee’s Leatherhead & West Horsley Wedding

What was it about Sophie & Lee’s Surrey Fine Art wedding that made it one of the most special I have photographed? I believe it was that from the first time I spoke to Sophie, she was all about the photos. When a couple come to me and they talk about how important their photographs are and how much they want captured, I know that we are going to be a perfect fit.

After the initial chat to discuss their wedding ceremony at The Mansion in Leatherhead, Surrey, and then their reception at a converted barn in the village of West Horsley, Surrey, we met up at Newland Corner, just outside Guildford, Surrey for their Engagement Shoot which you can have a look at here. As you can see from the post, we hit it off straight away.

It was an early start at Sophie & Lee’s home in the lovely little village of Bramley, near Guildford, for bridal prep. It was a gorgeous morning and when I arrived to start documenting the day, I knew it was going to be a wonderful day. After the ceremony at The Mansion, Leatherhead, we moved to a quaint little pub, with its converted barn in the village of West Horsley, Surrey for their reception. I can truly say I had a great time, everyone was full of laughter, happiness and genuine love for the special couple. From the reaction and review from the couple; and also their friends & family, I definitely captured  that and I believe you will see it also in the pictures below…

 

Enjoy
