A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited to Normandy, France with Claire and her family for a photo shoot. Claire may only live 10 minutes up the road from me, here in Surrey, but when you have France at your disposal – why not ?
Claire runs the very successful business Plantpassion, and is one of the most knowledgeable and passionate plant experts I know, and her blog is regularly updated with useful gardening snippets that we should all take note of – makes me wish I had a garden again!
So, for Claire and Ashley, the beach is a very important part of their trips over there, so we got up super early on Sunday morning and headed down, over the dunes, to catch the beach with the tide out. It was incredible to see how many cockle pickers were already up and hunting:
There was much splashing in the surf:
And this reminds me of a James Bond movie!
Tigger is a very important friend
And jumping is a very important game
We headed back down to the beach, amongst the dunes, later in the evening, to try and get some funky shots with the portable lights. This is my favourite shot from the entire weekend – how cool is this dude ?
A huge Thank You to you all for a cracking weekend!

Not long to go now until Rachel & Simon’s wedding, in just 6 weeks! They came to me on referral from a mutual friend, which is always the best ! They will be getting married at Loseley Park in Guildford, just 10 minutes up the road from me – perfect! So, we met up for breakfast on Sunday morning to discuss the wedding plans and then headed on over to Loseley Park for a mooch around and for some photography.
We stumbled upon the most beautiful walled gardens, which will be the scene for their drinks reception on the wedding day – no photographs of that on this occasion, as we’ll leave that special one for the big day itself.
In between dodging the wind, dodging the rain, dodging the goose poo, eating scrumptious Loseley ice-cream and dodging some dodgy shouting woman, we pulled out some lovely shots. Here are my faves:

I met the lovely Natasha and Luke at the National Wedding Show last year and the time has finally come for their wedding in just a few weeks. We met up at The London Eye a couple of weeks back to discuss their plans and to do their pre-wedding shoot. After ice-cream (thanks Luke!) and a good old natter, we spent a bit of time on the photography, just to get them used to the idea.
Looks like they’ll be fine on the day! So, here are a couple of my faves from the session:
Looking forward to seeing you soon guys!
