Abbe is a wonderful midwife and soon to be a wonderful mother! She lives a few hours away but we shot Abbe’s maternity photographs at her Dad’s house near Taunton in Somerset. February isn’t the right time of year to be lugging a big belly about the Somerset countryside so we set up an indoor shoot using some lovely furniture (thanks Abbe’s Dad!), with the help of C-Norry – Abbe & Paul’s little pooch.
Suzanne & Andy’s 28th December Coombe Lodge wedding was a mix of festive fun and new year glamour. The Lodge was wintry and interesting, with none of it’s stately flora in bloom, but plenty of roaring fires and snug sofas. Suzanne had chosen beautiful hand-painted baubles for her guest’s favours and a sumptuous mix of black, burgundy and plum as a colour scheme. I had an absolute ball, and was very grateful to receive a plate of gorgeous Mediterranean antipasti to follow my homemade ‘turkey leftovers’ sandwiches. I don’t ask to be fed at weddings…but who would turn down a free plate of food?!
