There's always something especially romantic about February weddings, but sometimes you can find yourself at the mercy of the elements! However, a few weeks back now, I was able to share in Scott and Louises' special day - and the weather stayed calm throughout the whole day. The crisp, almost Spring like, day showcased just some of the awesome Field Place settings and scenery that surrounded this amazing couple.
Both Scott and Louise's fun and friendly personalities shone through the entire day. It was such a privilege to be asked to capture their marriage and be a part of their infectious joy that quickly spread throughout their guests.
Maybe it was best illustrated by Scott's 'being pulled away from the car' idea, which was a fantastically funny scene to create and capture for them. Either that or Louise's super-classy denim jacket with her new married name on the back. The day was filled with memorable moments just like these, and I loved every second of it - nearly as much as they clearly did. Congratulations to such a beautiful couple and thank-you for having me at your special celebration.
It has been a tremendous honour to have worked with the Ronald McDonald House Charity (RMHC) here in Brighton over the last year. The charity works around the country to provide houses for parents and families that need emergency accommodation when a child is taken to hospital away from home. As they put it 'you may need us when the best medical care for your child isn’t close to home'. It's such an important and wonderful service that enables families to be close to their children during potentially traumatic and certainly emotionally-straining times.
I recently became their photographer when late last year I was asked to come and capture a very special and precious moment. A family who had previously used the Brighton RMHC, and were so touched by its' impact and support during a difficult season, revisited the house with their two children. It was such a touching moment to see the kids healthy and happy when they ran circles around me, enjoying and remembering the house's fun activities...
