Adult cake smash photoshoot.

Honestly I know what are you all thinking .. I have heard it all.. from the '"What?" and "huh?" to the big naughty - that I am not going to repeat... Yes I had a cake smash shoot and it was basically what it says on a tin... A cake smash photoshoot.. but ..let me start from the beginning. 

Just little over a year ago I have booked my first wedding for 2018 and as it happened it was meant to be on 27th January, which also happens to be my birthday. The bride was super sweet and mentioned birthday cake, so I didn't even care about working on my birthday.. and why would I? I love my job after all. I obviously told all my friends that there will be no birthday party as I will be out and about shooting a wedding, so naturally.. they all made plans. 
Fast forward to last Tuesday when the bride messaged me that the wedding is no longer taking place... all my friends are busy and I am sitting at home imagining how I celebrate the start of the last year of my twenties home alone with my dog...
and then ... crazy idea and two amazing friends who happened to be not that busy after all, to the rescue:) 

I have done a few cake smash shoots with kids and they're always a lot of fun ( except the tantrums that happen because you've been telling your kid their whole life not to get dirty and then when they finally get it you tell them to smash their face in a cake.. confusing much?)  
and I always thought how much fun would it be with a grown up ( sort of ) person. 
So as I found myself in a position of feeling pretty sorry for myself I thought what better time than now to do this. I'll get to spend some time with my friends, I can put a tutu on, I will get to wear a nice makeup and eat an amazing vegan cake. 

So off I went, bought myself some balloons, tiaras, party hats and bows, Sarah from Tiny Sarah's cakes made me an amazing cake and Toni Searle packed her suitcase big and heavy, so she could make me look super beautiful and camera ready. 
We ate some food, we laughed about silly things, I set it all up and gave the camera reins to the poor Sarah, who really didn't want to take any photos ( about as much as I didn't actually want to be in front of the camera ) but I think we all can agree she has done an amazing job. 
Also I am pretty aware of the fact that Oswald stole the spotlight, but I am pretty cool with that, because, well he is amazing. 

I honestly had so much fun doing this shoot and I am so grateful that the guys came to the rescue at last minute notice. I feel like this is a project that shouldn't die with just one photoshoot ( especially as it's just me), so if any of you amazing ladies and gents wanted your own adult cake smash - let us know, we can't wait to work together again! 

Ps if you want to check out the ladies, please have a look at: 



As always please let me know your thoughts guys!:) xoxo

Jordan and Alex's wedding. Am i seeing planes in those photos?

Hi everyone! 
So last weekend been but crazy, on saturday I was off to Brighton for the wedding of the beautiful Jordan and Alex and on Sunday I was off to Exeter to celebrate with Jo and Marcus and cold from hell ( more about that next time tho ) 

I was so excited about Jordan's wedding when she told me that the reception is at an airport? Seriously, how cool is that? 
First thing I noticed when I arrived was how bloody calm she was! I think she was definitely in my top 2 of most calm brides I've ever seen! She had a lovely set up of getting ready with her bridesmaid, maid of honour, dad, his partner and her siblings.. and everyone was just really chilled, no nerves, just smiles. 
On the other hand, Alex was showing some signs of nerves ( not too bad tho ) 
The wedding ceremony was in the absolutely stunning St Mary de Haura church in Shoreham by sea. After the ceremony and a lot of failed attempts at the confetti shot we were off to the airport. Seriously you guys can't imagine how cool shooting a wedding at venue like this, is for a photographer. I was like a Charlie in chocolate factory. 
I also think I won the award for most annoying photographer ever, because I didn't do just 1 portrait shoot through the day, not even 2 ... but actually 3!:D But sorry I couldn't help myself with that light! 
I have to say everyone was so lovely on the day and I had so much fun, hope you guys like the photos and as always any feedback welcome :) 

Lu and Samuel's wedding

Last week I was fortunate enough to spend the day with this amazing couple. As if there weren't one of the loveliest couples ever, they also come with the two SUPER CUTE kids! We are talking - I have never seen so many facial expressions in my whole life cute kids! :) 

Their wedding is a prime example of how well half a day packages can work if you don't necessarily have the budget to afford a pro photographer for full day, but you choose quality over quantity. 

I would absolutely love to hear any feedback you might have as well!:)
