Where did February go?

Hello all, apologies for my lack of blogging - what happened to February! What did happen to February, well...

We delivered the rest of our greetings cards to Arighi Bianchi a few days after our last post. I was very excited to hear that all of the Valentines Day cards sold out!

We got a phone call from a very excited Victoria & Mark who have moved their wedding forward - yes we are available - phew! So it was action stations getting their stationery done at lightning speed for them! We are doing their pre-wedding photo shoot on Saturday, looking forward to seeing you guys!

We met up with the oh so lovely Sophie & Dan to present them with their Wedding photos, which they loved! I love watching couples see their photos, bringing back the memories and emotions from the day.

Mark headed up to Bolton to do a shoot for Tru Dentistry, taking some great shots of their revamped clinic and lovely staff!

We spent a fab evening at 'Nicer' Bar & Restaurant in Prestbury photographing a surprise 18th Birthday Party which was great fun! The look on Frances' face when she walked in was priceless, and of course is now captured on camera!

Later that weekend we did Kirsten & Emma's pre-wedding shoot on a very chilly day in Macclesfield Forest with their dogs Stella & Moghli, such a photogenic and beautifully coordinated couple, they made our lives very easy! It was then only a week till their wedding at the Belle Epoque in Knutsford! What an amazing wedding it was. I have never seen a bride so chilled out and calm, and she looked stunning in her Jenny Packham dress. The wedding was just one big party full of love and happiness, exactly what it should be! Now we cant wait for them to get back from Honeymoon so they can see the photos!

Once we had packed up, Emma & Kirsten wanted us to stay so we had a drink and a quick boogie to their band, Groovy Revolution. It was an early start the following morning as we were up at 7am to head to Manchester Town Hall for the Confetti Queens wedding fayre! We met loads of cool couples who we are really looking forward to working with!

The next weekend we met up with Lucie & Darren for their pre-wedding shoot. We went to see their Church, the beautiful St Oswalds in Peover and went for a walk across the surrounding fields getting some lovely shots along the way. Cant wait for their wedding this Sunday!

We had another early start on the Sunday for another wedding fayre at the new Hilton in Liverpool, such a fabulous venue in such amazing surrounding just by Albert Docks, I can visualise so many urban style shots I'd love to do, the big red columns, outside the Tate Gallery - ooh inside the Tate?! The possibilities would be endless!

I think we are pretty much up to date now, I have spent the week making wedding invitations for Sarah & Carl who are having a vintage theme, lots of pretty lace, pearls and the old typewriter on the go! Ooh I have some family birthday cards to make too, they seem to get left until last these days!

It's no wonder February went so quickly, we didnt really have chance to say hello to it! I won't leave it so long next time, I promise!
