Wedding - Hannah and Matthew

I'm delighted to be able to share some photos from Hannah and Matthew's wedding in Portsmouth.

Both Bride and Groom arrived in style...

After all the rain we've been having over the last couple of months it was great that the weather turned just in time for the big day.

We did all the usual group shots after the ceremony but waited until after the Wedding Breakfast to create some special shots of Hanna and Matt.

It is great when we can work with the couple to plan time for shots like these.

By doing the photos a little later in the day it means that everyone is fully relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. Not that either Hannah or Matt was ever nervous about the photos as you can probably tell!

This was such a fun wedding and, even though Lorna and I were working, we really enjoyed the day.

Take care!

Blackgang Chine

Just returned from a short holiday on the Isle of Wight. It was great to get away for a few days with the family and, unusually for me, I was able to unwind and relax pretty quickly.

I took this photo from Blackgang Chine park. The kids had already done just about every ride and explored the dinosaur, fairytale, wild west and other play areas. There is a lot to keep them entertained.

Erosion along this part of the coast is amazing, several metres are lost every year. You can see a recent rockfall about half way up the right edge of the photo. Panning just a little to the right I could have included the homes, some already empty, which will eventually follow the others to the bottom of the cliff. The park itself seems much smaller than I remember it from when I was a child, maybe that is just my memory playing tricks with me though. :)

We should really go to the IoW more often, it isn't so far away, but taking a car over on the ferry makes it quite expensive. The hovercraft is cheaper, but then you have to rely on public transport. Whilst it is actually pretty good from what I remember, it does limit what you can take with you. But, once you are there, there is plenty to see and do.

Well, the holiday was nice, but have to get back up to speed pretty quickly as I have another wedding this weekend!

Take care
