Wedding Jewellery, Love Stories and Burnt Breakfasts!!

I love vintage jewellery and thinking about all the places a ring or a bracelet could have been, the stories it would tell. So the idea of a piece of jewellery that you are given on your wedding day and will take through the years with you is right up my street. I’ve been looking at lots of wedding jewellery recently whilst planning my own wedding and I came across this video on Pinterest (the mecca of wedding inspiration). I was so engrossed watching it that I totally forgot about the bagel I’d put under the grill. Here is the evidence: burnt bagelOoops! Cue the smoke alarm going off, people outside peering up at me flapping about with a towel trying to fan the smoke away. So if you feel even the slightest bit sorry for me or amused by this I think you should all watch it….. but please try not to burn your house down!;)

If you have received a special piece of jewellery i’d love to hear all about it. You can comment below. Have a great weekend. Lauren  x

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year: Christmas Traditions

Hello all,

Everyone is gearing up for Christmas and I’m feeling the rising levels of seasonal cheer!

I’ve been talking to friends on Facebook about Christmas traditions and lots of fun Christmas memories have come flooding back to me so I thought I’d share these photos with you from a few years ago.

During Christmas 2011 my nephew found one of my confetti rockets and I agreed we could set it off! He loved it. We did snow angels in the confetti for hours and I spent even longer clearing it up! My younger nephew will be old enough to join in the fun this year so I’m looking forward to doing it again and making it a yearly tradition, though I think I will have to make them promise to help the clean up operation!

Here’s just a few things people have made a tradition:

  • Christmas hampers
  • Hot chocolate and Christmas movies
  • Getting merry on Christmas Eve
  • Starting the day in onesies with a glass of bubbly
  • Wrapping last minute until the wee hours
  • A present on Christmas Eve huddled round the tree
  • Christmas fry up

A happy December to you all. Hope you are enjoying buying presents and making plans.

 

What fun things do you get up to at Christmas? Tell me in the comments.

Kent newborn photography: Noah & his nautical nursery!

Catching up with updates from the summer. Let’s kick things off with more from the shoot with the delightful little Noah. He has big blue eyes and two very proud parents! Oh and his very own ark, just saying! In his cute little seaside theme nursery we took some precious portrait of Noah, Mummy and Daddy and he was the quietest little baby I have ever seen. What a gem!

If you’re expecting or you have a new addition to your family, get in touch, I’d love to hear from you.

Kent Portrait Photography: Little Poppy’s Family Shoot in Herne Bay

So as promised I am showing you what I have been working on lately. A few weeks ago I had the honour of photographing Poppy’s christening at Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Herne Bay.

As it was such a special day Poppy’s mum wanted to have some family photos with Poppy before going to the church. I love observing and creating a record of people’s special days. It was lovely to see all Poppy’s family and friends of the family come together to celebrate.

One of my favourite shots  is Poppy deciding Daddy doesn’t need his nose and trying to pull it off🙂

Thanks to Kirsty and family for being such a pleasure to photograph.

Kent Wedding Photographer: Gemma & Chris get wed at The Tuns at Staple House: a sneak peek

Earlier this week I had the pleasure of capturing Gemma & Chris on their special day. What a day it was! The sun literally beamed down on them at The Tuns at Staple House.

It has been a crazy busy summer full of meeting and photographing lovely couples and some great families and Gemma & Chris and their family were some of the friendliest people I’ve ever met. Thank you guys for welcoming me in and letting me a part of your day, you rock!

There is nothing I would rather do that capture moments of love and laughter between newlyweds. My poor blog has been a little neglected lately as I’ve been really busy, so I thought it was about time I shared some of the beautiful moments that I have seen this summer and what a great way to start than with the gorgeous Gemma and Chris.

Here is a sneak peek of Gemma & Chris’ day. Once again, thank you to them and their families for an amazing day!

Kent Wedding Photographer: Gemma & Chris’ Herne Bay Engagement Shoot

I for one cannot wait to see these two get married!

Gemma and Chris were such a sweet couple and spending a lovely warm summer’s evening with them walking along the seafront and the downs in Herne Bay, it was clear how smitten they are with each other.

I know that Gemma is so excited to walk up the aisle to marry the man of her dreams and that Chris will be equally as happy to make Gemma his wife. I’m excited to be their to capture it for them, bring on the wedding fun! They are getting married at The Tuns at Staple House near Canterbury, a beautiful venue where they can have the laid back family centred wedding celebrations they’ve been dreaming of.

I’m looking forward to sharing photos from their day soon but for now, here’s some of their beautiful love filled engagement shoot.

Natural Newborn Photography in Kent: A Sneak Peek of newborn twins Ella & James

The week before last I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing tiny little newborn twins. Their lovely mum contacted me quite a while back now and we exchanged emails leading up to the arrival. I don’t know who was more excited!

Well James and Ella arrived happy and healthy and have been keeping Mummy and Daddy very busy. We had a wonderful day capturing some memories to treasure. I have so many really adorable photographs of little James & Ella, they were such little characters, but I couldn’t wait to share a little sneak peak. I hope you like them. Aren’t they cute?
