I was very excited to be asked to A Most Curious Wedding Fair in London.  Most Curious and it’s handpicked exhibitors draw inspiration from the lifestyle trends around them, your lifestyle trends, not weddings trends, weddings shouldn’t have trends, they should be about you having fun and being creative, dreaming big and most importantly an expression and celebration of who you are as a couple.The fair aims to encapsulate that with it’s mix of innovative, design-led suppliers, fashion shows, entertainment, styling, activities, music and performance. The things you can’t quite put your finger on but you know you want it on your day? This is the place to find it. Hackney Downs Studios was a cool venue space for their Spring Summer 2014 show and it was great to meet with so many brides there.  With over 90 stalls it was a packed show and I only had a few brief chances for photos, and didnt get around to photograph all the stands. I did squeeze in two little photoshoots with Oilhana who modeled for Sammantha Walden & Federica Bruno and The Faun in the Lemonade and Laughing gas caravan. Which is basically an uber loved cool caravan, the newest addition to the L&LG family, available to hire.  What fun. I met lots of brides and felt the selection of stalls and the organisation were both excellent. The two fashion shows were packed out, as I was right by the catwalk there was a sea of heads of brides all ready for insiration from what was on offer.  Well done to Ruby, Sarah and Cat for a brilliant event.  Have a look at teh amazing video at the end for a terrific slice of what was there!

I took Esther to a private lake for some portrait shots, the late afternoon light was bright yet beautiful, there were swans, Spring blossom and bokeh. The owner created some interesting blue smoke for us when she strimmed some undergrowth. After being very brave and thinking I'd avoided it I got attacked by a goose. Here are some of my favourite frames.

What a wonderful fun and loving family, I dont need to write anything, just that we went to the amazing and beautiful Ashridge Estate in Hertfordshire for a morning of fun. We played games and despite the girls being young ladies, there was a childlike lighthearted feel to the interactions between them. The Chapel was beautiful...such sweet light in there, and a bit of welcome change in light to the very bright and welcome Spring sunshine!
