A trip to Brussels

At the weekend (before the snow arrived) I took a business trip to Brussels with the Eurostar. As I was traveling lightweight I took just my trusty and little used Canon G6 with me. These are a couple of my snaps from the trip.

This is a Shampoo bottle provided by the hotel. Taken after my shower!

This is the entrance gates for the EuroStar train at Brussels station.

Do feel free to comment.

Now I lay Me Down To Sleep

After some deep thought we volunteered to be local photographers for the Charity Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep

"The Now I Lay ME Down To Sleep Foundation is there for parents and families to help aid them in their healing, bring hope to their future, and honour their child. It is through rememberence that a family can truly begin to heal."

The Foudation have reviewed our KiddyPix web site and selected us to be one of their affiliated photographers. We will be covering the Nottingham, Mansfield, Derby, Leicester, Grantham and Newark areas.

I'm sure this will be a challenging task, and NONE of these images will appear on either of our BLOGS.

This shot is from a session I was leading with the Portrait Group of Newark Photographic Society and she had here natural hair and a 50's fir coat. Last night this image achieved top marks as a projected image in my own Camera Club's quarterly competition. Thank you Ellie for being such a great model:)

Katie & Robert Morigi-Eades

It was a pleasure to be invited to capture Katie & Robert's wedding last Saturday.
Katie's flowers and shoes
It rained so much of our photography was taken indoors. Katie wore a stunning dress from Caroline Castigliano
Katie in reflective mood.
Robert and his best man William sheltered from the rain under a spreading tree in the churchyard.

Katie & Dad share a quiet moment in the car before going into the church.
During the service at the magnificent St Mary's, Bottesford.

At the church door.
It poored with rain so as professional photographers we set up our lights and took all the group shots in the magnificent setting of the church.
Katie & Robert.

Their reception was at the grand Stoke Rochford Hall. A glorious setting - when it's stopped raining!
Katie & Robert in the glorious grounds of Stoke Rochford Hall.

And finally as they walk into their reception they see the fantastic cake!
