Chocolate orange cornflakes, a quick and easy isolation boredom cure…
Just like you, I am in isolation due to the Corona Virus safety measures. I don’t know anything more positive than cooking with a loved one, or what keeps the peace better than nostalgic chocolate cornflake treats?

As well as a chocolate cornflake recipe to soothe some boredom, this post is a little of what this late chapter has entailed, besides photographing gorgeous London weddings…

 

Life is stressful, but when everything is…

Keeping Wedding Calm Amongst the Corona Virus

When faced with problems, we must look at the solutions. It is hard not to panic, and it is even harder to deal with the deflation.

You should be feeling excited about planning your wedding and my biggest sympathy is with the couples right now that instead of feeling the buzz of creativity and eager anticipation, are now filled with deflation, worry and uncertainty because of corona virus.
There are two pragmatic options where we can renew the zesty good vibes…

Photographs of my stay at the Crofting Cottage on the Isle of Lismore, Oban, Scotland

Inhale, exhale, and come on a journey with me to the remote Isle of Lismore
My not so straight forward but scenic route from London to Oban and onto the Scottish IsleSo I’m sitting drinking red wine with bessie Katie and she asks about my trip to Scotland that I have planned as part of a photography workshop.

Chris & Misa’s Hearty Wedding: The Ned, Islington Town Hall and then onto the Albion Pub accompanied by a Brass Band!

A city wedding doesn’t have to be grey or dreary, it can be full of soul and vibrancy!..

Bridal Prep at the Ned

Fleabag, a BBC show written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge

The Priest’s Speech in Fleabag

Honest, gritty, sentimental wedding speech inspiration from Fleabag?!Fleabag stole my heart and now you taketh away! Phoebe Waller-bridge you talented, magical meanie. I’m rather gutted that this is said to be the end of the show.

I’m all fired up thinking about how it seems that I’m a sucker for wedding speeches that expose the vulnerability of love, the pain, the outright doom! But where there is darkness, there is light and all that. Like Leonard Cohen says, ‘There is…

Couples Pose Workshop in Haggerston

Keeping up with the Jones!
As a wedding photographer I’m constantly learning new things to keep myself ahead of the game.

What are your favourite love stories between fictional characters? Or even real for that matter?? Here are some of mine;
