Wedding Bouquets

The variety of colours, styles and types of flowers used in bridal bouquets never ceases to amaze me.

There are some amazing florists supplying the flowers for weddings and I'm lucky enough to come across some of them on a weekly basis.

Amongst my favourites are McQueens, Jane Packer, Matthew Dickinson, Jades Flower Designs, Paula Pryke, L K Lily, Ashleigh Hopkins and Aurora.

I would be interested to hear about any florist you feel is creating innovative flower designs for weddings whether it be bouquets, table arrangements or what ever. If you would like to suggest anybody please click on 'comments' below and leave a link to their website if you have it.

Through the looking glass...

I love using mirrors in photographs. They can give me angles otherwise unobtainable and I find that when people are interacting with a mirror they really don't notice me at all.
The following images were all captured during 2007 and, in most cases, although I am only feet away, the subjects pay no attention to the camera:

This image is from the wedding of Julie and Peter. Here, Julie is in her room at The Landmark Hotel making the finishing touches before heading downstairs for her wedding ceremony.

Gail and Jon were married in Luxembourg. The Bride is getting ready at her parents house a few miles from the church.

Debbie and Paul got married in the beautiful St Peters Italian Church in Farringdon. This shot was taken in her room at the Four Seasons Hotel, Canary Wharf

Sannah and Dermott married at the gorgeous Braxted Park, a fabulous wedding venue in Essex. This photograph shows Dermott and his Father-in-Law of a couple of hours having a look at the table plan which was written up on this mirror.

Katie checks herself out in the mirror at the Brockencote Hall Hotel where her reception was held after a lovely church ceremony.

This photograph was taken in August on one of the few 'summer' days we got last year. Genevieve and Jason married at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in Regents Park, London.

Finally, a shot where there is a prize for the first person to spot the photographer... Sarah and Chris were married and held their wedding reception at the The Hop Farm in Kent. As you would expect, the Bride and her Bridesmaid are more concerned with the dress than they are with me.
