I jumped at the chance to go and visit Tea With Alice - it's newly opened in Darlington by one of my couples from a few years ago, Mary and Mark. They've since had a little girl, Alice (hence the name!) and opened up this fabulous place! The brunchy-breakfasts were to die for.. right up my street. I'll definitely be heading back up here. Here are a few previews (and little video) of a delicious morning spent at Tea With Alice. Lovely stuff.
It was fabulous to be back at The Star Inn at Harome and spend the day with these two.. Harri and Charlie are absolutely head-over-heels for each other and spent the whole day telling the other just how much they adored them. It was full of beautiful botanical details, dozens of paper lanterns, and a rainbow turned up at exactly the right moment, in exactly the right place that we could use it for a few couple portraits too. A perfect day. Here are a few preview pictures..
Oh Bhodi! What a beautiful little person. I joined Bhodi, Aime and Colin at their home in Hartlepool to capture the three of them together - it was a love-filled few hours and these three are the most beautiful family together, not forgetting their doggie Bug too. Here are a few favourite previews from that day :)
Can we stop and just gaze for a sec at these two beautiful people..! Haleema and Sam tied the knot last Thursday after being together since they age of 14 (*that's* commitment..). They celebrated at Whinstone View and had beautiful handmade and travel-inspired touches decorating the barn.. an absolutely beautiful day. Here are their previews..
I do *love* a Lake District wedding, and Fiona and Ashley's day was just perfect. The had full run of beautiful Morland Hall, and dozens of friends and family stayed for a few days to celebrate with them in the days before and after the wedding too. The sun shone, they both looked amazing and the whole day was a mix of emotions, joy and love. Here are their previews..
Oh Berlin - one of the best places I've visited. A brutalist, beautiful, interesting, artistic and historical city.. full of amazing sights, poignant reminders, graffiti, photo booths, the coolest residents and amazing places to eat and drink.
When away, I love to explore on foot where possible and love having my camera to hand when I do. It just feels like you really *see* when you're moving a bit slower across a city and I loved having a few days to shoot just for myself. I hate being too much of a tourist but I do love seeing a few of the 'important' things when visiting somewhere new too. I loved the little details of this amazing city as much as the monuments and amazing architecture.
Of course, I visited the wall. The history of Berlin really hits you when you're seeing it right in front of you and I love that it's so accessible - they haven't papered over the past at all and it's such an incredible and interesting place to explore. There was also plenty of time getting beers in and eating amazing currywurst too - I'd love to go back and see more. I visited in March and it was still absolutely freezing, I'd love to this this wonderful city in the Summertime too. Oh Berlin, I love you. Here are some of the personal pictures I took on that trip..
Check out those sleeves! Laura and Richard married at Bedern Hall in York in a beautifull personal ceremony conducted by their friend. Laura designed her own dress, they were accompanied by their beautiful boy Odhran, family and friends and they went on to the NCEM to dance the night away.. Here are a few preview pictures from their day. Congratulations you two!
