Yay, today is a good post day because look what I found poking through my letter box - my first ever feature in Perfect Wedding Magazine! This is the December issue (out now) and inside you can find seven whole pages of bright & cheery inspiration from Gemma & James' big day at Ludlow Castle. Thank you Perfect Wedding!
Another wedding St Fagans National History Museum in June of this year (the other was Katherine & Mike) meant that by the end of the month I felt quite at home among the cobbled paths and smokey wood-burnt air of this outdoor folk museum. Katie & Liam - who just happen to have the cutest taste in everything - were married in a small ceremony in the beautiful dark wood pannelled room at the Elizabethan Castle before heading over to the Oakdale Institute for a raucous evening do. Their details and decor were so pretty & plentiful that it has taken ages to edit the pictures down and keep this blog from spiralling out of control! The bouquets & flower arrangements from Blush Floral Art were playful & sweet in the nature of the day - perfect daisies, glittering carnations, big jolly craspedias and baby blue hydrangeas. The exquisite Cath Kidston inspired cake is the creation of Rachel at Little Cake Cupboard who I have enthusiastically recommended to everyone since. Ooh and check out the raffle ticket drinks coupons! Okie doke, enough talk - you will adore this wedding. PS. Many thanks once again to Simon for second shooting and especially for taking the fantastic VW van shots with the boys.
If you're looking for photography tips & inspiration in the news stands this month you might see my face peering back at you. I've been interviewed in the latest issue of Digital Photographer magazine about becoming a professional freelance photographer. Confusingly I've sort of been referred to as "Jane" throughout the feature but it's definitely me! My images are the New York landscape and the wedding detail shot (the legs of Gemma & James!) and the other two belong to Surrey based family photographer Vicki Knights who also shares her freelance experiences. I hope someone finds it a little bit helpful in their journey... let me know what you think if you pick up a copy.
