Charlotte & Chris - a sneak preview

Hi, Yesterday it was our great pleasure to capture Charlotte & Chris's wedding at the magnificent Stoke Rochford Hal in Lincolnshire. Here is a sneak preview of their pictures.


 The day was very wet so we did all their photography inside the magnificent Stoke Rochford Hall.


Both Chris & Charlotte looked uncommonly calm for their special day.

Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep

Hi I published this post on my KiddyPix blog yesterday and thought I'd share it here as well. KiddyPix is my Baby & Children's photography site. 
Instead of a "Picture of the Week"  I reported on a photo session at the Leicester General Hospital Saturday evening.

Each month I get a number of names and addresses for new mums or mums 2 be. About once a quarter I receive an email announcing a "deceased baby". Feeling that there must be something I could do to help these families I volunteered to work for the charity Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep.

Thursday morning I received an email from a mum 2 be who had just learned that her unborn baby would be still born at 25 weeks on Saturday, could I help. So I found myself at Leicester General 9.30pm Saturday evening and was ushered into the labour room just minutes after little J... had been stillborn. My task was to capture little J... to give the couple a lasting image of their lost child.

As a NILMDTS photographer I give my time, travel and images to the parents for NO CHARGE. The parents will receive a CD with my images retouched to clean up some of the defects, they can then use my images in whatever manor they like.

Rest assured that I'll not be placing any NILMDTS images on my BLOG.

If you know anybody who unfortunately may be in need of this service than do give me a call; 0774 034 6923.

Sikh Wedding

I was very prividedged recently to be invited to be a photographer at a Sikh wedding. I say a photographer because I was No3 Stills shooter, plus about 5 video operators! So the event was well covered:-)

Here I show a tiny selection of my images showing the colour and crowd of the event. There was both a Sikh wedding in a Temple followed by a British civil service at another venue. Enjoy, I did!
