Wow is the only words we can say!!, just like being transported back to our disco days his new songs and a selection of golden oldies had us all dancing around, believe it not we were so amazed that we went to see him twice!! he really does live up to his reputation as one of the nicest people in the music industry.

Can't wait to see him again!!

Rolling Stones in Concert, Coventry Stadium, 2nd June 2019 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2018/6/rolling-stones-in-concert-coventry-stadium-2nd-june-2019 Well as some of you know, we don't mess around when it comes to seeing legendary groups in concert!

So with Lionel Richie still ringing in our ears, we jumped into sally the SAAB and sped off to Coventry arena to see the mighty, the amazing, the legendary ROLLING STONES as part of their "no filter tour"

Iconic is sometime a miss use word in this day and age, but it really doesn't do justice to what an amazing band the Rolling Stones are! these gentlemen (who are all in their 70's) showed the world how to preform for a crowd.

For this concert we had Golden Circle tickets right at the very front so we didn't miss out on anything, so Mick and his band of merry men took us all on a musical journey through 60 years of songs which had us singing our hearts out, as a bands singer many have tried to copy Mick Jagger but know one does it better and you can still feel that even after all these years Keith and Ronnie still love playing live and feeling the buzz from the crowd.

After a medley of greatest hits the evening was soundly rounded off with and encore of "Satisfaction".

An evening to remember, a lasting memory!!

Lionel Richie in concert, Franklin Gardens, 1st June 2018 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2018/6/lionel-richie-in-concert-franklin-gardens-1st-june-2018 "All Night Long, All Night"

This Evening saw us just for a change going to a concert on our doorsteps so to speak, with our evening of entertainment provided by MR Lionel Richie at Franklins Gardens in Northampton.

Our first outdoor concert of the year and we were praying that it didn't rain! 

The concert was kicked of by the mighty dynamo the is Anastacia who was pretty impressive herself before we all settled down for the main course!

Lionel Richie is one of those artist that has such an amazing back catalogue of songs both as himself and with the Commodores you feel that the concert could have gone on much longer that it did, well he took us through the 80's with his greatest hits before diving back into the 70's with some of the Commodores smash hits as well, before bringing the house down with "all night long".

Fair to say that 15-17k people were singing and dancing their way home!!

As some of you my know Gaby views this gentleman as her 2nd Husband! and who can blame her, the legend that is Bryan Ferry 72 years young and still so effortlessly cool!(never seems to age)

The Birmingham Symphony hall is our location for this evening a fittingly grandiose venue for a night of glamour and rock.

We have followed his music over the years and once again were delighted to have the experience of hearing his new songs as well as the classics from his Roxy Music days.

He kicked things off with "don't stop the dance" having been welcomed with loud applause from us all before taking us on a journey back in time dipping into the 5 decades of music at his disposal.

An amazing evening, which we hope to repeat soon!!

Shustoke Barn, The Wedding of Anne and Justin https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2018/4/shustoke-barn-the-wedding-of-anne-and-justin On a slightly windy and wet day (with fingers crossed that it would stop) we journeyed off to the charming Venue of Shustoke Barn in Warwickshire for the Wedding of Anne and Justin.

We arrived at the Venue first thing where Martin was due to meet Justin and his best man, we also met the very Charming Nadia from Jamjar weddings and events as she was waiting to enter the venue.

Having delivered Martin safe and sound Gaby then sped off to spend the morning with Anne, her bridesmaid and flower girl in the haven of femininity that is the bridal preparations, Gaby was able to make sure that as normal all the details that went into the Wedding day like the dress, shoes, jewellery and perfume where photographed in great details before she made herself invisible in order to capture the hair and makeup.

In the meantime Martin had met Justin and his Best man at the venue, they were making sure that all of the room dressing details were correct and delivering final handmade finishing touches, they then headed off to a nearby hotel for the Grooms preparations, the Best man had kindly whispered in my ear that Anne had arrange a very special gift for Justin that she wanted Martin to photograph as it was handed to him (rest assured that it would be) Which turned out to be an amazing handmade knife which was engraved with so much decoration it would be a shame to ever use. Martin made busy as the gentlemen finished getting dressed by again capture the accessories that they would need to get them through the day His Punisher Cufflinks, rings Aftershave and watches. Martin then made his way to the venue to capture the meet and greets as the guests arrived.

Gaby was keeping herself busy with Anne and the bridesmaids, capturing the final touches before the Bridal party left for the Venue (just time for a quick portrait session with Anne before she left the house).

Anne looked so beautiful as she made her way down the aisle with her father on her arm and Gaby was able to capture Justin’s first look at her (filled with love sums this up), the ceremony was wonderful, highlighted by a beautiful reading from the bridesmaids daughter. Once all complete the Guests went outside the venue to allow Gaby to assemble them for the group shots, Anne and Justin had decided just to have a couple of minutes to themselves before they joined their guests Martin had persuaded them to have one or two picture taken on the upper level of Shustoke Barn which has an amazing Circular window at the back (the light was so diffused it made for some amazing images of them both).

Once Anne and Justin had joined their guests Martin was able to shot from above them to capture the largest group shot first before joining Gaby to mingle with the guests where she was already busy capturing as many natural shots of the guests congratulating the happy Bride and Groom, (along the way we were also ticking off the other groups shots that we had been requested to do). Gaby was also able to wiz around the reception hall to capture as many of the table details and decorations before we then stole Anne and Justin away for romantic shots just outside the venue before delivering them back to their top table just as the meal was due to commence.

Having made sure that we also were fed and watered we returned to them just in time for the speeches, Justin had the crowd eating out of his hands as he made an emotional speech which was filled with love and thankfulness. We then were able to capture the evening guests arriving to much happiness and hugs while the venue staff transformed the reception hall into the dance hall ready for the Cake cutting and the First dance.(we had already sneaked our remote flashes into position for this earlier, so were already to go).

The first dance emotion was capture along with everyone letting their hair down afterwards, party on we always say!

Anne and Justin kindly agreed that they would join us outside for some long exposure tripod images of them in front of the venue with some sparklers and we were then able to us the special feature that the venue has of a line of trees strung with lights to finish the evening off with some low light hi iso romantic images of the two of them before we wished them goodnight and meandered off home.

We wish them both a love never ending!

Walton Hall, The Wedding of Amy and Di, 6th April 2018 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2018/4/walton-hall-the-wedding-of-amy-and-di Today saw us meandering through the leafy lanes of Warwickshire towards Walton hall for the Wedding of Amy and Di.

We had first met this lovely couple at the Edward lewis wedding fayre at Walton Hall, (with a string quartet playing an accompaniment  in the back ground) and had such a wonderful feeling about this couple, they were so warm and loving that we knew straight away that we wanted to be a part of their forthcoming wedding day.

We spent the morning with each bride as they prepared for the day ahead, Gaby spent her morning thinking up ever more creative ideas for locations for the photos of the dress and all of the details that make the day, Martin kept his side entertained with witty banter to ease any nerves (while taking one or two pictures as well).

The wonderful brides once they had made themselves even more  beautiful than they were to start off with, had chosen to have and American style reveal/ first look on the stairs which we have to say was both beautiful and very emotional (one or two tears were shed by us both) before they made their way to ceremony room. Martin had already gone on ahead to capture the guests as they seated themselves, such a great time to capture natural documentary style images of the meeting and greeting.

The Brides making their entrance into the ceremony room, gliding underneath the line of spectacular chandeliers that adorn the ceiling at Walton hall made for some beautiful images (because we always position ourselves with one of us at the front and one at the back, we are able to capture the joy on the Brides faces when they see all their friends and family and also the guests joyful looks at them). The Ceremony was made all the more emotion with two speeches from friends who brought tears to the eyes of all present.

Ceremony complete we always give the couple plenty of time for congratulations from their guests, which again allows us time to mingle and capture natural images before we move on to the requested group shots, thankfully the weather was glorious so we were able to head outside and use the magnificent hall us a back drop (did we mention that we love shooting weddings here!).

Group shots complete we were able to spend time with Amy and Di capturing some more romantic style images around the hall, making full use of the wonderful architectural arches they have there before escorting them back to their guests, (we then quickly made ourselves bust photographing the table details which very much reflected the brides love of games, Including a trivial pursuit themed cake!) make sure that we then photographed their grand entrance into the reception hall, with all the guest cheering and clapping them in.

We then retired to rest and refuel, (having some time to quickly check our images so far on the back of our cameras we were delighted with what we saw). We then made our way back to the hall to get ourselves into position for speeches (a part of the day that we always enjoy as there is always so many things going on around us, thankfully with us both in position we can capture both the speaker and the guests reaction to the speeches) the speeches included a small look back through the photo albums of the bride as they were growing up with made for some hilarity to say the least.

As the speeches were happening unknown to one of the brides a surprise was being prepared in the main hall, where a massed choir were assembling to sing their congratulations to her (we had been made aware of this surprise so were able to make sure that we were both in position to get the combined looks of surprise and joy from all). We then had a small window of opportunity in which to take the wonderful couple outside once more for some more romantic images of them both at dusk  with our off camera flashes before making sure that they were back to greet their evening guests.

As we mingled with the guests, imagine our surprise when we heard that a Barn owl had been spotted outside the hall, needless to say that we had to capture an image of this as well!, we then moved swiftly on to the cutting of the amazing Trivial Pursuit themed wedding cake before seamlessly flowing into the first dance (we were able to combine our use of off camera flashes with natural ambient light to capture all the colours as the couple danced around), they then invited all their guests to join them as they got on down on the dance floor (apparently there is nothing like a Sclub party to which we heartily agree).

This wonderful and beautiful day was then rounded off by fireworks at the back of the hall, which once more we were able to capture with a combination of long exposure shots to capture the firework bursts and flash (who doesn’t love fireworks!!), before we made our way back home.

We wish you both a life time of happiness and love!

East Carlton Park, pre wedding shoot Claire and Martin https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2018/3/east-carlton-park-pre-wedding-shoot-claire-and-martin East Carlton Park, pre wedding shoot Claire and Martin

We had the pleasure of meeting Claire and Martin at Sedgebrook Hall’s winter wedding fayre and straight away knew that we were going to enjoy seeing them again and photographing their wedding day at Sedgebrook in the summer.

We had arranged their pre wedding shoot for early February but the rain Gods decided that the day we had chosen was their day and not ours (heavy rain stopped play) so we had to rearrange for early March.

Luckily, on the day, the rain stopped before we met them and we journeyed off to locate the bench that Martin had proposed to Claire on. Stopping along the way for one or two images of them together (as it was still very muddy underfoot we can’t thank them enough for doing this) before we headed back to the café for well-deserved coffees and hot chocolate all round.

We then were able to go through the wedding day with them in more detail, discovering that their big day had a surprise theme to it which will be so much fun to photograph.

Thank you both very much for being such good sports and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Birmingham Botanical Gardens, pre wedding shoot Anne and Justin https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2018/2/birmingham-botanical-gardens-pre-wedding-shoot-anne-and-justin Birmingham Botanical Gardens, the pre wedding shoot of Anne and Justin

We had originally arranged to photograph Anne and Justin’s pre wedding shoot at Licky Hills Country Park which was a short distance from where they live. Sadly, on the day, it was hammering it down with rain. They were kind enough to rearrange the date for us and came up with the wonderful location of Birmingham Botanical Gardens, which turned out to be an inspired idea. Not only was the location beautiful but the day was one of the crisp, sunny winter days that we get so rarely in this country.

Meeting them at the entrance, we quickly got on with the shoot, not wanting to miss a moment of the glorious sunshine. Once the nerves for all of us had calmed down, we found that Anne and Justin were very relaxed and loving with each other, which made for some romantic pictures as we wandered around the grounds, dashing from the greenhouse to the bandstand and then to the aviary, before we took the woodland walk and found some colourful peacocks just to round things off before we returned to the café for a much needed cup of tea.

We then had ample time to discuss the final details of their day, learning more about them as a couple and their families.Very much looking forward to the big day.

Kettering Park Hotel, The Wedding of Libby and Peter, 30th December 2017 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2017/12/kettering-park-hotel-the-wedding-of-libby-and-peter-30th-december-2017 Merry Christmas one and all!

Having eaten and drank our selves merry over Christmas today saw us preparing for the wedding of Libby and Peter at the Kettering Park Hotel,

We had first met Libby and Peter at the Highgate house Wedding Fayre and from the very start we wanted to be part of their big day, they only wished for a shorter coverage than which we provide.( we don't as a rule do this but we so much wanted to photograph their wedding as they were such a lovely couple) so we came to an agreement.

Slightly shorter day for us as the bride and groom hadn't wished to have their preparations covered, so we journeyed off to Kettering Park Hotel to capture them and their Guests arriving before the ceremony, as Martin mingled and made sure he had captured lots of greetings, hugging and laughter, Gaby worked her magic in capturing the reception room from multiple angles and using her macro lens to make sure she had photographed all the small details. before she made sure to be at the front entrance to photograph Libby's arrival in a beautiful Vintage Rolls Royce! Libby herself was also looking elegant and beautiful 

We then regrouped for the ceremony itself and to say that Peters first look was a picture he looked like the luckiest man alive! ceremony complete and having given Libby and Peter time to be congratulated by their guests we took them for a quick spin back to the front entrance for some romantic photos with the Rolls Royce and the fireplace at the front of the hotel before making sure to get them back for the evening meal.

We returned in time for the speeches which were started by Libby's son who was looking very dapper in his kilt! having made sure that we captured the speeches and toasts, we then busied ourselves getting as many small groups shots of their family and friends before finishing the evening of with one or two images of them both together

we wish you both a love never ending!

Phil Collins in concert, Genting Arena Biringham , 3rd December 2017 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2017/12/phil-collins-in-concert-genting-arena-biringham-3rd-december-2017 Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls would you please put your hands together for the legend that is Mr Phil Collins!!!!

To say that we had been looking forward to this concert all year would have to be an understatement, Phil Collins at the Genting arena in Birmingham as part of his "Not dead Yet Tour", we had followed his life avidly and loved his music and films so as we waited with anticipation it was with tears in our eyes as we watched the band assemble on stage and then we were heart broken to watch Phil Collins slowly make his way up onto the stage looking very fragile and using a stick to walk as he sat down center stage.

Thankfully, his wit and charm hadn't been lost and as he greeted us with the words that he had missed us and although he had had a back operation and that his foot was f**ked  it wasn't going to stop us having fun! we knew that we were in for a great time!

The evening then ran through a selection of his greatest hits including a moving duet with his Son Nicholas who plays the drums in the band before we ended the evening with "Take me home".

It would be a dream come true to see him again, hopefully looking better.

We had the pleasure this evening of going to see the huge talent that is Mr Chris Rea in concert at the Birmingham Symphony Hall 

what an amazing concert it was too, astonishing to believe that with all that Chris Rea has been through health wise he can still put on such an amazing performance, it was a privilege to see him perform and to look so well.

we spent the night rocking away to all his classics and his new songs from his latest album before bringing the house down with "lets dance"

amazing to see what the camera captures when the shutter is open for approx 30 seconds just sitting on its tripod soaking up light. as these slow speeds the movement in the water is recorded as a blur and we really think that this adds a ethereal beauty to the image.

Good Night everyone.

Normanton Park Hotel, The Wedding of Chloe and Marcus, 11th November 2017 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2017/11/normanton-park-hotel-the-wedding-of-chloe-and-marcus-11th-november-2017 To say that we have been so lucky with the weather this year is an understatement, 11th November and the sun is shinning (cold but sunny) for the wedding of Chloe and Marcus at Ketton church and then on to the wonderful location of Normanton Park Hotel for the reception.

We had met Chloe at the Bridge Hotel in Thrapston wedding fayre and you could say that we hit it off right from the start (it felt like we were old friends who hadn't seen each other for a while), we then met up with Chloe and Marcus to run through our services which again just felt so right we couldn't wait for the wedding day itself.

The day started with us speeding of to Peterborough for Chloe and her ladies hair and makeup at the multi award winning Burghley Academy where Emma and Alexa  worked their magic to make Chloe, her Bridesmaids and her Mum look even more wonderful once completed they all returned to the family home to finish off the bridal prep, giving Gaby time to get creative with the photos of the Dress and all the details that go into the wedding day, shoes, perfume, jewelry Etc.

Meanwhile Martin was busy capturing Marcus and his Grooms men getting ready for the day ahead (3 piece tweed suits really fitted in with the time of year and looked fantastic!) one of the many highlights were a very thoughtful present basket provide by Chloe with all the essentials that Marcus would need for the day, including Captain America cufflinks and tissues!. once all suited and booted so to speak it was off to the Church via a small local Public house to met and greet the Guests.

Gaby was at the same time just finishing off her feminine side of the day for the journey to the church also, the Bridal car suited the couple perfectly, a split screen VW camper (we always say that it is the Bride and Grooms day and their style and personality should show through).

Sadly for us the Vicar wouldn't let us take pictures during the ceremony, so instead of of normal coverage where one of us is standing at the front and one at the back in order to capture both the bride and grooms first look we had to stay just at the back of the church. we were still able to capture Chloe's arrival and also Marcus's first look at her and their first walk together down the aisle as Husband and Wife!, we then just had time for a small selection of Group photos before the cold weather got to us all and we beat a hasty retreat back to Normanton Hotel for the reception.

Having been greeted by their waiting guests, (allowing us to capture as many natural photos as we could) Chloe, Marcus and the whole of the Bridal party allowed us to take them to the nearby Normanton Church for some more dramatic,creative and romantic photos around the Church itself (we can't thank them enough for this, sun was setting and by now it was getting very cold! you guys were rock stars!) once finished we made sure we got them safely back in time for the evening meal.

Having refueled ourselves with a superb meal provided for us by Chloe and Marcus (for which we thank them very much as we normally don't insist on the Bride and Groom feeding us as they have already paid us enough to photograph them), the food here is fantastic and we can't recommend it enough. we then returned to the reception room in time to capture the speeches, we always aim to capture as much of the speaker as well as the crowd on these occasions and love to document the genuine emotions that occur.

We then moved onto the first dance which also included a emotional Father and Daughter dance before stepping seamlessly into the cutting of the cake (which again reflected the Brides elegance as well as Marcus's love of the world of Marvel comics), the evening was then finished by each and everyone letting their hair down and getting on the dance floor!.

we thank you all so very much for allowing us to play a small part in your big day and wish you both a love ever lasting!

Kettering Park Hotel, The wedding of Kelly and Martin, 21st October 2017 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2017/10/kettering-park-hotel-the-wedding-of-kelly-and-martin-21st-october-2017 Another wonderful day for a Wedding!, today we have the pleasure of playing a small part in Martin and Kelly's wedding at Irchester church and Kettering Park Hotel and Storm Brian is not going to stop us!

We had first met Kelly and Martin at the Sedgebrook Hall wedding fayre and we both felt that they were such a wonderful couple we just had to be part of their wedding day (the act that Martin also came from the same area that Martin did also helped!).

Gaby spent the morning with Kelly at Kettering Park Hotel, as her Bridesmaids and Mum had their Hair and Makeup done, Kelly looked so Beautiful. Gaby is always wonderful in these situations as she is able to not only to capture the preparations but is always on hand to offer assistance and advice if needed.

Martin was able to spend the morning with Martin at the family home as he and his Grooms men prepared for the day ahead (including a ride to the church in a rather sporty little number his best man had). the preparations on both sides all went as plan with some romantic gifts for both the bride and groom.

With the Groom and his band of merry men safely arrived, we were able to arrange some groups shot and solo pictures of the men before they entered the church. we had been advised in advance that we would not be allowed to take photos inside the church during the ceremony so all that was left for us to do was to await the arrival of the Bride and her father in a elegant vintage Rolls Royce.

Ceremony complete we then had a small window of time to assemble everyone for group shots and then then confetti shot (one of our highlights of the day) before heading of to Kettering Park Hotel for the reception.

On arrival at the Hotel, we as always quickly grabbed the Bride and Groom(and of course the beautiful car) for some romantic photos before they went in to greet their guests, champagne flowing and canapes ago go, as Martin mingled with the guests Gaby worked her magic on capturing the room settings and decorations including the always spectacular wedding cake for the genius that is Hockley cakes once completed we took our leave, to refuel ourselves and await the speeches.

The speeches went well with lots of laughter and one or two tears and much hugging! at this part of the evening when ever possible we love to take the Bride and Groom off for some more romantic shots in and around the venue, lucky for us that Kettering Park has so many different areas to photograph in. we then escorted  them back to their guests as we once again mingled waiting for the evening guests to arrive.

The evening was completed, (once we had set up our lights) with the first dance (we always endeavor to capture both a natural light and also illuminate the Bride and Groom with remote flashguns, which makes for some interesting effects). all that remained was for everyone to jump onto the dance floor for lots of getting on down!

 

we wish you both a love never ending!

Drayton Manor, The Wedding of Sian and Nathan, 23rd September 2017 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2017/9/drayton-manor-the-wedding-of-sian-and-nathan-23rd-september-2017  

Today we sped off to the wedding of Sian and Nathan (we had been looking forward to this wedding very much, as the couple were such fun and had chosen a venue that reflected that sense of fun).

Drayton Manor was the perfect choice for this wedding, and pink was very much the colour of the day (including
Pink sunglasses), we started the day with Sian as her bridesmaids and mother photographing their Hair and makeup before Martin left to photograph the Groom and his band of merry men(lots of practising of the infamous Loughborough lunge).

Martin then had the opportunity to mingle with the guests as they arrived for the wedding itself, capturing all the love and laughter as they congratulated the Groom on his forthcoming day of pleasure! while Gaby was able to capture the elegance of the Bride and her Bridemaids with one or two pose portraits before the made their way to the ceremony room.

Ceremony complete Sian and Nathan then commenced their walk down the aisle as Husband and Wife suitable attired with Pink Sunglasses! we then were able to mingle with the guest capturing the natural moments that make up a wedding day, before moving on to the short list of groups photos we had been supplied with.

now came the moment that we had been waiting for! Drayton Manor as part of their wedding package include the ability to have photos in the amusement pack (we thought that it would be rude not too). we can thank Sian and Nathan enough for giving us time to capture some fun and romantic photos in and around the park (only 1 note of caution, that photographing while going backwards on a carousal make you feel most unusual).

On returning to the venue, Gaby then whizzed around the reception room making sure that we hadn't missed each and every detail that had gone into the day including the amzaing seating plan that Nathans brother had made.

Leaving them all to enjoy their meals, we then retired to a quite place to refuel and relax before joining them just before the speeches got under way, the one thing that we always love to capture is the person giving the speech followed by the reactions from the Bride and Groom and the guests!

After the speeches we were able to steal Sian,Nathan and the bridal party away for one or two more groups photos around the bar and grounds of the Hotel (as you can see the Ladies proved once again who rules the world!).

the evening then finished with a very special exotic mix of dancing and Partying. We thank you both and wish you all the love in the world!

Dodmoor House, The Wedding of Jacqui and Kendal, 9th September 2017 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2017/9/dodmoor-house-the-wedding-of-jacqui-and-kendal-9th-september-2017 Today saw us having the honour of photographing the wedding of Jacqui and Kendal, at Dodmoor House,

With mixed weather forecast we set off to our locations, Gaby to Dodmoor house for the Bridal prep and myself to their family home for the men, Kendal was assisted by his brother and nephew preparation was carried out with military precision, even the dance tracks were compiled and sorted as Kendal’s brother was on DJ duties later, Gaby spent the morning in a sea of femininity as usual as Jacqui prepared in the beautiful bridal suit at Dodmoor along with her bridesmaids, brother and mum and dad.

When the grooms party arrived at the venue we were treated to a brief downpour much to our surprise this didn’t last long or seem to have any effect on the high spirits of the day, as the guest from all around the country arrived and seated themselves we all made ready for the bridal entrance from across the courtyard.

Jacqui looked delightful and Kendal looked like the luckiest man in the world as the ceremony commenced they were surrounded by so many smiles and love; once the civil ceremony was complete they also had a blessing from their own reverend which completed the occasion very well.

The courtyard made for the prefect location for our groups shots before we moved on to our favourite part of the day i.e.: the hugging and kissing congratulation part! We then were able to steal Jacqui and Kendal away for a small shot in front of Dodmoor house itself, they have a lovely avenue of apple trees, which make an excellent lead in line to the house and the bride and groom. Once we had completed this we returned the bride and groom to their guests as the meals were just about to be served (we had been requested to photograph the courses  of the meal before they were brought out so we put our food photography hats on and snapped away).

We returned in time for the speeches, some wonderful words of advice to Kendal to make sure that Jacqui is treated like a queen for the rest of their married life (as if there was any doubt that she would be) also just for balance a wonderful speech from Kendal’s daughter who remained everyone how much love she and her sisters have for their dad, following the cutting of the cake and romantic first dance we all indulged in a night of Caribbean music and dancing!

Thank you both and we wish for a love never ending!

St Andrews Church Chinnor, The Wedding of Natalie and Greg, 2nd Sept 2017 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2017/9/st-andrews-church-chinnor-the-wedding-of-natalie-and-greg-2nd-sept-2017 Today saw us having the honour of photographing the wedding of Natalie and Greg, at St Andrews church in Chinnor,

Yet again our prayers had been answered with sunshine very much being the order of the day.

We had prepared and braced ourselves for this wedding as it was going to be big (over 200 guests, 10 bridesmaids and 10 groom’s men).

Gaby and I started the day at Natalie’s parents’ house which was full of emotion surprises and tears of joy including a special surprise from Greg that made everyone laugh out loud and jewellery for the day, we both photographed the hair and makeup as the ladies made themselves even more beautiful, before Martin set of for the short journey to the men’s side of the day at Natalie’s and Greg’s house were Natalie had arranged a selection of surprises for Greg also (Martin also closed his eyes for a calendar boys shot in the back garden).

Natalie and the ladies once ready made the journey to the church, Natalie travelled by a classic horse drawn carriage with her father by her side looking very regal and beautiful, having photographed the arrivals before they entered the church we then positioned ourselves at the rear of the aisle (sadly the Vicar wouldn’t allow us any further) where we were able to capture Greg’s first look at Natalie as she made her journey to the alter and of course their departure as Man and Wife, we then replicated on or two shots similar to Natalie’s parents who had also married in the same church before setting off to the venue.

The Venue itself was an amazingly large Marque in one of the family’s meadows complete with chandeliers and all you would require for a truly wonderful day, after the guests had congratulated both Natalie and Greg, we were taken to a glade surrounding a small lake for the group photos, with a list in the hands of ourselves and one the hands of each of the groomsman we worked our way methodically trough them completing all of them in about an hour(we can’t help the groomsman and everyone else that helped us with this enough) before returning to the marquee for the wedding meal (as we retired to our car to relax and rehydrate).

Once we were refreshed the Bestman kindly found us to advise that the speeches would start shortly (we were aware of this but it was a kind thought), the speeches were a delight filled with emotion and laughter (and some handy gifts for the groom) just what we like!, we were then able to take just the Bride and Groom off for some romantic shots just as the sun was setting making sure that we got them both back for cake cutting and what we had been told was going to be a choreographed flash mob style first dance. Fantastic is the only way to describe it, what a production the first dance turned out to be with all the groomsman and bridesmaids involved running through a medley of songs.

We then carried on with our usual documental style of shooting capturing the wonderful dance of Natalie and her father, and everyone else enjoying themselves to the full, before the evening was rounded of by a spectacular firework display!

Thank you both and we wish for a love never ending!

The Woodlands Hothorpe Hall, The Wedding of Angela and Gary, 31st August 2017 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2017/8/the-woodlands-hothorpe-hall-the-wedding-of-angela-and-gary-31st-august-2017 Today saw us having the privilege of photographing the wedding of Angela and Gary, at the wonderful location of the woodlands at Holthorpe hall.

We had met Angela and Gary at Sedgebrook Halls wedding fair and knew right away that with so many share interest’s  (including a fascination with Venice) that we would love to play a part in their special day, as we had already shot their pre wedding in and around venue we already had plenty of ideas in mind weather permitting.

Gaby started the day with the ladies at Woodlands capturing the fun and laughter as Anna Sawer from Barton Sawer hair and make and Rani from Beauty by Rani completed their beautiful look for the day (they all looked stunning!), Martin had the shorter part of the day as the gentleman prepared at the family home (hair and makeup took slightly less time as you can imagine but the top hats made up for this) before setting off the venue.

The weather gods had played nice today as the whole of the venue basked in golden sunshine, the Bride and Groom had hired a large picture frame to photograph the guests of the day in, so Martin set about enticing the arrivals in to place before the ceremony.

Following the emotional civil ceremony the Bride, Groom and Guests were led down to a beautiful glade where an additional outdoors ceremony also took place which mad for some interesting images of the light diffusing through the surrounding trees, we then made the short journey back to the grounds surrounding the ceremony room for a large groups shots with 2 confetti canons provided by the venue!, we then broke the party down into smaller groups shots before taking the bride and groom away for a short romantic session around the grounds of the hall itself.

Following the meal we re-joined the party for the speeches which were made all the more emotional by the video wishes from Angela’s family in South Africa and a personal congratulation from the South African rock band the Parlotones!, then on to the cake cutting (the cake was topped by models of Gary spinning the decks and Angela covering her ears!) and the first dance, we rounded of the day by Angela and Gary making crepes under the watchful eyes of Chris Hill from Vive La Crepe (we think that Angela won that one!).

Thank you both and we wish for a love never ending!

Norton Church, The Wedding of Jo and Tom, 26th August 2017 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2017/8/norton-church-the-wedding-of-jo-and-tom-26th-august-2017 Today saw us whizzing off to Norton to photograph the wedding of Jo and Tom, since meeting them at the High Gate House wedding fayre we just knew that they were going to be such a lovely couple to photograph with their love of animals and the great outdoors, this was further reinforced when they decided to choose their narrowboat on a canal trip for the location of their pre wedding shoot(despite martin being a little bit of a coward when it comes to boats we had a great time).

So the day of their wedding arrive with a glorious August day, Gaby spent the morning with the girls as they made themselves ready, capturing every detail of the dress and accessories and flowers which matched the rainbow colour theme of the day at the same time and also had the time to capture individual portraits of the bride, brides maids and Jo’s dog before setting out to arrive at the church.

 Martin spent the morning with the chaps at Tom’s family home (Tom’s mum had prepared the most amazing hearty breakfast to see them through to the reception), capturing the suiting and booting of the men before also taking portraits of them all, luckily enough the church had a public house within walking distance, so we all journeyed off there to meet the guests as they arrived before walking over to the church.

Jo’s mum lived just down the road from the church so Gaby walked over with them also which made for some relaxed and informal shots before the grand entrance at the church itself, Jo looked amazing as she made her way up the aisle and the service was very relaxed and joyful. We lucky enough that the church had a raised balcony and were able to ask Jo and Tom to pause as the made their way back up the aisle as husband and wife so we could photograph them surrounded by all their guests before taking them all outside for a line confetti shot and as the sun illuminated the whole church we stepped back to capture their guests congratulating them.

Once we had then photographed Jo and Tom’s requested group shots we had time for some romantic pictures of them with the church in the background before we took the short walk to the field next to the church for the marquee reception (decked out in a festival style complete with bouncy castle, face painting and a rope walk) leaving them to enjoy the wonderful meal and drinks.

Re-joining them for the speeches (as one of Tom ‘ushers was a stand-up comedian everyone was on the edge of their seats as to what he would say)all went well and as per normal we snuck the happy couple away for one or two romantic shoots of them against the setting sun.

Last but not least we returned for the cake cutting and first dance, Jo had by this stage changed into her dancing dress and light up dancing shoes and Tom’s was looking much more at home in flip flops and shorts. We wish them all the love in the world

Rockingham Castle, The Wedding of Jo and James, 12th August 2017 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2017/8/rockingham-castle-the-wedding-of-jo-and-james-12th-august-2017 This morning saw us speeding of to Rockingham Castle for the wedding of Jo and James, we had already had the pleasure of visiting the castle and grounds when we had shot their pre wedding session, so we already had one or two locations in mind for group shots and romantic images of them around the grounds, to say that we were looking forward to this wedding would be an understatement!

we stated the day both in the same location as the main wedding party had spent the night together in one of the recommended B+B, (such a great idea) so while Gaby spent the morning capturing Jo and her bridesmaids, I had the pleasure of photographing James and his brother in law (who had flown in from Australia to attend the wedding) as they went about they own preparations once both parties were complete and the short journey up the hill was completed.

As the guests arrived they were seated in the medieval great hall surrounded by painting and artifacts that date back to 1200,once the service was completed the guests were lead out through the ornate panel room and onto the lawn terrace for canapes and drinks, the light was amazing, so were able to mingle around the guests capturing the joy,love and laughter of the day.we then made our way to the cross and the rose gardens for groups shots before returning the party back to the Great hall for their meals.

Having refueled ourselves we rejoined the party for the speeches (so much emotion to capture in such a wonderful setting), we were then given the option to take James and Jo upstairs to the long room for some more shots of them together with their daughter (we can't thank the staff at Rockingham enough for this). James and Jo were also kind enough to allow us to walk with them around the grounds and gardens which allowed us to capture some romantic images of them as the setting sun cast a golden hue over the castle.

Returning back to the marquee just as their evening guests started to arrive we were then treated to a excellent display of dancing by all before the first dance, we again have to thank James and Jo for allowing us one final shot of them both kissing in front of the castle gates just to finish of the evening.

The Groom and Bestman were joined at the registry office doors by guests that they had worked with in the oil industry from all around the world, the arrival of the bride looking beautiful in a classic wedding car started the service which was conducted with a wonderful mixture of love and fun which really summed these two up before we retired back to the Swan hotel for Group shots with the car (the driver we cant thank enough for his skillful positioning of the car on slightly wet grass).

once completed we wandered back to enjoy a relaxed meal and emotional speeches, the love that these two have is amazing and we could tell from the very first meeting that it will last a long time.

Katie was lucky enough to live in beautiful house in the the grounds of Newstead Abbey which had the added benefit of wandering peacocks (whose colorful plumage were to provide the colour theme of the day!).

We were blessed again by wonderful summer weather and a very photogenic couple. Katie, her bridesmaids and flower girl all had their hair and make up done at her parents home before they made the journey across to the Abbey,whilst Simon and his groomsmen attired themselves at their home before a small glass of liquid at the local watering hole.

As all their guests arrived with Simon and his cohorts ready and waiting to greet them, Katie was making her journey setting off in a fairy tale Cinderella carriage. The ceremony was carried out in the charming compact and richly decorated chapel.

As Katie and Simon went off for a little drive around the abbey ground their guests walked across to the family home to enjoy canapes and drinks on the lawn accompanied by a string duo.

Following the meal and speeches we were able to persuade Katie and Simon to take a small wander with us back towards the Abbey and lake for some romantic pictures on the golden evening light.

Just to round of the wonderful day what more could you ask for but a breathtaking firework display.

We were blessed with a warm summer's day that really brought a smile to every ones face, We were able to just bland in to the back ground and capture the love and laughter of the day and also able to capture one or two group shots on the outside stairs which really capture the impressive hotel in the back ground.

Through the whole day we really got the impression that these two were made for each other wishing you both many happy years together. MJC_7774MJC_7774

Chloe looked very elegant in her lace wedding dress from Silver Sixpence Bridal and really set the standard for the day. Her and her bridesmaids beauty was further enhanced by Kerstie  from Kirstie Ann Hair and Make up.

The Groom and his Groomsman had spent the morning adding the finishing touches to the Marquee and were soon suited,booted and ready to go, Jamie and his Bestman making the journey in a vintage MG roadster provided by a family friend.

The ceremony at the Church was beautiful and Chloe and Jamie were surrounded by so many friends and family all waiting to congratulate their love for each other, they then set of on their journey to Plum park farm in a vintage split screen VW camper van.

Drinks and canapes consumed we then set about the group shots starting with a group shot of everyone and then working down to just romantic shots of Chloe and Jamie before they made their entrance and settled down for the all important meals and speeches.

We then managed to steal Chloe and Jamie away for some more romantic picture of just the two of them in and around the gardens before returning them for the arrival of their evening guests and to join in the games around the marquee, lawn games and laser clay pigeon shooting for those inclined(which made for some interesting pictures), as the golden sun set we were able to persuade Chloe and Jamie to allow us one  more shot of them embracing with the setting sun behind them.

Toseland in Concert, Craufurd Arms in Milton Keynes, 13th April 2017 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2017/4/toseland-in-concert-craufurd-arms-in-milton-keynes-13th-april-2017  

We had the pleasure of attending the most excellent Toseland in concert at the Craufurd Arms in Milton Keynes. As sports photographers for many years we had followed James Toseland as we went on to become double World Super bikes champion and we are sure like everyone else we were amazed by his performance playing the piano at the sports personality of the year show (talented guy we thought) we also were also delighted to hear that he married the beautiful Katie Melua and had formed his own band with her brother and they were touring the UK, off to sunny Milton Keynes we went.

What an incredible evening you guys were great!! DSCF7249DSCF7249 DSCF7328DSCF7328 DSCF7380DSCF7380 DSCF7425DSCF7425 DSCF8802DSCF8802

Holiday Inn Rugby The Wedding of Sarah and Chris, 18th March 2017 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2017/3/holiday-inn-rugby-the-wedding-of-sarah-and-chris-18th-march-2017 Today saw us back into the swing of Weddings, with our first wedding of the year. Sarah and Chris were the brother and sister in law of the bride Sarah that we had photographed only in December 2016, so we were really excited to see the family again.

Sarah and Chris both had a shared passion for Rock music, Harry Potter, the Lord of the rings and Star Wars and they had made so many references to this in their wedding decor, they had also proved that what ever the weather threw at them they were unstoppable (as the pre wedding shoot proved as we all got soaked to the skin).

 

Sarah looked stunning in her lace dress from Stunning Bridal with and very intricate head band and Chris looked very dapper also, despite the weather looking ominous the rain stayed away and we were able to persuade Sarah and Chris outside for one or two romantic shots around the hotel combining their love of Star Wars and the season.

We thank you both for being so lovely to us and wish you all the love in the world!

Venice look back, 1 st March 2017 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2017/3/venice-look-back-1-st-march-2017 Looking back through the images from our trip to Venice, we came across this image of the Italian Destroyer the Luigi Durand de la Penne docked in the basin of St Marks Square, with the more normal mode of transport in Venice moored in the foreground( we though that it made a different photo from the normal view).

Pitsford Morning 24th January 2017 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2017/1/pitsford-morning-24th-january-2017 This morning saw us taking our normal morning walk down to Pitsford Water, so lucky to have this stunning location just on our doorsteps. Crisp and bright with a golden haze on the meadows are the words that come to mind, we were lucky to spot a Red Kite hunting for  pheasants in the Brynne Vineyards as we walked down to the water(we would return to see if success had been achieved). Cameras in hand we were lucky enough to capture the beauty of this area with some amazing light.

Paestum Wedding Italy, October 2016 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2017/1/paestum-wedding-italy-october-2016 The Month of October saw us taking a well earned rest in the Italian Rivera. Sorrento was our base for a couple of weeks and what a charmingly lovely place it is too.

we took in the sights of Pompaii (delightful,even in the rain) and the Amalfi drive ( scary even in the dry) and then set our sight slightly further afield with trips to the isle of Capri (heaven) and also onto the breath taking site of Paestum, whilst there we had the pleasure of photographing this lovely bride and groom amongst the astonishingly well preserved Greek temples.

The Bridge Hotel, The Wedding of Jade and Justin 28th December 2016 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2016/12/the-bridge-hotel-the-wedding-of-jade-and-justin The 28th December 2016 saw us photographing the beautiful wedding of Jade and Justin at the Bridge hotel in Thrapston. We had only recently shot their pre wedding pictures at the Christmas Market in Birmingham and could tell that they were going to be a lot of fun on their big day.

The day of the wedding itself was one of those rare late winter cold but sunny days that you can only wish for. Gaby spent the morning capturing Jade and her bridesmaids preparations, whilst I spent the morning with Justin. On arrival at the Bridge hotel all guests were greeted by a glass of Ameretto and a cinnamon pastry.

The ceremony was beautiful with Jade making such an elegant bride. Afterwards all guests retired to the bar for Mulled wine and a wonderful singer to keep them entertained before they sat down to their meals and speeches. The late afternoon light streaming through the hotel window created some amazing images.

The speeches were delightful- the correct balance between comedy and love,and while the hotel staff transformed the room we took Jade and Justin outside for a spectacular sparkler exit from the hotel and then some romantic images of them in front of the illuminated hotel entrance. Thank you both so very much for braving the cold with us.

The evening was completed by Justin surprising Jade with his personal performance of singing Billy Joel's "She's always a woman to me" before their first dance! We wish you both all the happiness in the world. 695_JADE_JUSTIN_W281216695_JADE_JUSTIN_W281216 670_JADE_JUSTIN_W281216670_JADE_JUSTIN_W281216

We had visited the venue a week before the big day to complete our normal recon in the slightly uncharacteristically bright December sunshine, Sadly the big day itself was foggy and rainy but we were not going to let that stop us from taking some amazing images, Sarah and Warren both braved the downpours and we can't thank them enough!

Wishing you many happy years to come!

Eastwood Hall and St Helen's Church, the Wedding of Michelle and Andrew, 4th June 2016 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2016/6/eastwood-hall-and-st-helens-church-the-wedding-of-michelle-and-andrew-4th-june-2016 Eastwood Hall was the location for today’s wedding between Michelle and Andrew,

As soon as we had first met this couple we knew we were going to get along as we had so many shared interests (Motor bike racing being just one of them)

Michelle looked beautiful in her dress from Emma’s Secret

Sarah Hoyle, Velvet Beauty Company provided the make up

Andrew and his Best man’s attire was provided by ultimate formal hire

The ceremony room was dressed by Stylish events, and was looking stunning, and the flowers by Hilltops florist really completed the venue.

Bouncy castles are just one of the things that we love about this venue and it goes without saying that we couldn’t wait to photograph the bride and groom on them, the rodeo bull was also very popular.

We wish them all the love in the world.

Kilnsea Beach 29th May 2016 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2016/10/kilnsea-beach-29th-may-2016 Another day and another adventure by the sea. Kilnsea was our destination of choice this time, amazing to see the power of the sea eroding this whole section of coastline - the first images are of a rare sound mirror used in the first world war to hear enemy aircraft, the others show the remains of Godwin gun battery from the second world war which used to be on the headland and as the coast eroded has now fallen on to the beach, finally a sunset over the Humber estuary.

Nikki looked amazing in her dress from Serendipity Brides as did her bridesmaids.

Helena Bailey and Carrie Cave worked their magic with makeup and hair.

Brian and his Bestmen’s attire was provided by Suitors

The ceremony room was dressed by the Potter Group who also provided the DJ services and was looking stunning, and the flowers by Divine Blooms really completed the setting.

We wish them all the love in the world.

Brixworth Country Park, pre-wedding shoot Nikki and Brian https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2016/5/brixworth-country-park-pre-wedding-shoot-nikki-and-brian Last month we met with Nikki, Brian and their two lovely (and very well behaved) boys to discuss the details of their wedding at Sedgebrook Hall later this month and do their family pre-wedding shoot. Having postponed the shoot 2-3 times since last autumn, with the Big day approaching, we finally agreed we can no longer delay so we met at Brixworth Country park. As it happens - we had a nice chat, the sun was shining and the day looked wonderful...until we came out of the Willow Tree cafe and the heavens were ready to open. Thankfully our cameras are waterproof and Nikki, Brian and the boys were not fazed by the rain drops and the approaching black clouds so we proceeded. And we got some amazing pictures.

Willen Lake, pre-weeding shoot April and Wayne https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2016/5/willen-lake-pre-weeding-shoot-of-april-and-wayne We first met April and Wayne some 14-15 months ago when they booked our services at a wedding fayre at Hellidon Lakes. We felt immediately this was going to be yet another lovely couple's wedding to look forward to. For their pre-wedding shoot, which is part of all our packages, they chose the picturesque Willen Lake in Milton Keynes. We met at the Peace Pagoda, where we started the "get to know each-other" shoot in our usual relaxing style, proceeding towards the  beautiful gardens of the Nipponzan Myohoji temple, making our way back to the Lake.

And I found myself mourning,
For a childhood that I thought had disappeared."

Last night we continued our 2016 legendary concerts programme at Nottingham Rock City with the magnificent Fish and one of his very last performances of "Misplaced Childhood".

Farewell Sir!

Here are a few pictures we managed to get before the security guys told us off.

Hothorpe Hall and the Woodlands https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2016/4/hothorpe-hall-and-the-woodlands Back at the beginning of February, when Angie and Gary booked us to photograph their wedding at the newly built Woodlands at Hothorpe Hall next year, we couldn't resist and wait till the summer but rushed immediately to do our first recon. It was a very cold and bright day, just perfect for the winter wedding they were going to have at the Hall an hour later, hence the reason we weren't allowed to spend more than 10 minutes around (fair enough, we wouldn't want other photographers to be in our way).

We were immediately taken aback by the new  Woodlands "heaven", which was still under development but even so - very peaceful and beautiful. We can't imagine how beautiful it will look in the summer when it's all finished and full of tree foliage and colour.

The Hall's beauty speaks for itself, however we do strongly recommend the Woodlands - if not for a wedding, maybe for a weekend of tranquility.

A-Ha in concert at the Barclaycard arena in Birmingham https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2016/4/a-ha-in-concert-at-the-barclaycard-arena-in-birmingham We opened the 2016 concert season with this amazing night with A-ha.

What a wonderful evening back to eighties, singing our little hearts out together with another 12,000+ like minded fans at Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham.

Our best wedding photographs of 2015 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2016/1/our-best-wedding-photographs-of-2015 This is a selection of our best wedding pictures from 2015.

Last year we met some very interesting couples and expanded our horizons from Derbyshire to Essex. We had classy weddings, we had military wedding with the bride's mum being the priestess, we had very warm and hearty weddings. Some of our brides and grooms had been together for many years and shared bad and good (and a few children in between), some had only met a few months before the wedding but the common thing they all had was the confidence and the commitment to share their lives together. 

Thank you all very much for trusting us to be your photographers to capture those precious moments for you and being so welcoming and appreciative.

Happy new year to you all. We hope you are as excited for the next 12 months as we are. We already have quite a busy year ahead, starting with the wedding fayres' season in a week's time.

"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them."

Blood Moon https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2015/12/blood-moon Blood Moon.

Well, along with the whole wide world it would seem, we had a little go at photographing the Blood moon this morning. As we were right next to Pitsford Water it got a little foggy in the middle and at the end, plus the fact that we were both freezing and falling asleep didn't help either! Still amazing to see!

Saturday found us in Burgess hill for a photographic training course (you can never learn enough in the ever changing world of photography) the sun was shining out side all day,streaming through the windows!
once the day was complete and we had filled our heads with ideas we whizzed down to the charming seaside town of Bexhill for some setting sun images of the De la Warr Pavilion (art deco buildings are a little weakness of ours),and a quick wander around their Magnum photo exhibition.
photos done,images viewed we retired to our hotel to feed and sleep with the hope in our hearts that the weather would be great on Sunday!

Rome, Sistine Chapel https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2014/10/rome-sistine-chapel So good news about the new lighting in the Sistine Chapel,no more trying to take photos in the dark,like we had to do when we were there.
Travel advise from Mgphotographic-if you have the pleasure of going on your own mini Angels and Demons adventure you must take time to visit PIAZZA DEI CAVALIERI DI MALTA (the headquarters of the knights of Malta) and look through their keyhole,
the view leads you along a corridor of trees,then as yours eyes adjust in the background--view pictures to see! PICT0223PICT0223KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA PICT0058PICT0058KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA PICT0059PICT0059KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA PICT0067PICT0067KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Nikon D610 Test, 21st October 2014 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2014/10/nikon-d610-test-21st-october-2014 Exciting news at MGPHOTOGRPHIC, just took delivery of the first of two new Nikon cameras,so very much in such a small body (bit like us I know).
So as per normal little wander down to Pitsford rewarded us with these little shots! 
What an amazing day weather wise, heavy rain,strong winds,freezing wind chill and sunshine on the causeway, one side rain clouds and rainbow, other side setting sun.

Also on way home just couldn't resist walking by the Mercedes AMG HPP building it would appear that there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! Congratulations to them for winning the 2014 F1 constructors Championships.

Horsley Park,25th August 2014 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2014/10/horsley-park-25th-august-2014 Continuing our Tour of Fun,we then whizzed down in the old jalopy to Horsley Towers / Park in sunny surrey for some light refreshment and a good night sleep! 
Couldn't help but notice this is a spectacular wedding venue as hopefully the images will show the cloisters and chapel underneath the main building are somewhere we would love to shoot a wedding couple! (also couldn't resist taking one or two pics of the bride at her wedding!)

Bibury,Glouchestershire, 24th August 2014 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2014/10/bibury-glouchestershire-24th-august-2014 It seems like ages ago now but Mrs C and I got away for a small weekend break, Bibury in Gloucestershire was our first port of call - charming picture box village,like stepping back in time! ( I think the signs in Japanese are a give away for tourists), We made some new friends with the local wildlife and Mrs C looked Fabulous Darlings!

St Crispins Fire 7th August 2014 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2014/10/st-crispins-fire-7th-august-2014 The irony of life never fails to make me smile! How ironic that when we were chatting away during Amanda & David's pre-wedding shoot about how cool it would be to shoot around and inside St-Crispin's, little did we know that not long after, it would be in the headlines that it was on fire! tres ironique non!

The boutique look of the church and the elegance of Sedgebrook Hall contributed to this special day and made it really memorable.Natalie and Daniel had decided to make their day even more special with the Christening of their beautiful daughter Elsie at a short ceremony straight after the marriage. To add to the excitement of the day there was a celebrity appearance in the evening by Natalie's brother and his very well known band Whiteroom, who got everybody up on the dance floor with tier usual mix of Rock and Pop.

The Wedding Of John & Margaret McBride, St Andrews Church of Scotland, 7th June 2013 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2013/12/the-wedding-of-john-margaret-mcbride-st-andrews-church-of-scotland-7th-june-2013 Today we started the 2013 wedding season with the wedding of John and Margaret McBride, who had chosen this day especially for sunny and warm weather, and wasn't it just...Tip for future brides - apparently the weather on this day is always very good.

As normal our day started with the Bride's and Groom's preparations before moving on to the wedding at St Andrews Church of Scotland in Corby. All the main male players were kilted and ready to go, the ceremony was emotional and  the group shots called for some high level balancing (climbing railings). Once completed, it was a short walk to the reception at the Corby Masonic Center  where we moved on to very moving and then some risqué speeches before the classic first dance of the newly wedded couple's life together. The night evolved with lots of laughter and good time by the wonderful couple's wealth of friends.

Brookwood Military Cemetery,Woking 29th March 2013 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2013/12/brookwood-military-cemetery-woking-29th-march-2013 Today we went to the Brookwood Military Cemetery near Woking to visit the memorials to all of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for all our freedom.  We wanted to visit the memorials of some of the most bravest men and women who had waged an underground war against the Germans in France- William Charles Frederick Grover-Williams,Robert Benoist  and Violette Szarbo who all joined the Special Operations Executive (SOE) working as undercover agents in occupied France in order to as Winston Churchill put it "to set Europe ablaze".

 William Charles Frederick Grover-Williams grew up in France to an English father and a French mother. Always interested in automobiles he began working as a chauffeur for Sir William Orpen, then he became the first man to win the very first Monaco Grand Prix where he entered his Bugatti resprayed in the now familiar color of British racing green winning many Grand Prix across Europe. He became firm friends with Robert Benoist but when the second world war broke out he returned to England to join the army where he was selected to join SOE and return undercover to France to set up resistance cells to sabotage the German war effort. He persuaded Robert Benoist to join him staging many acts of defiance against the occupying forces until both sadly were captured and executed in concentration camps (although rumors  indicate that Williams did survive this however this has never been proved). Amazing Amazing people! If you are ever in Monaco you must visit the Statue of him at Saint Devote.

anywhere (just watch the mustard - its hot!).

The London to Brighton Veteran Car Run, 4th November 2012 https://www.mgphotographic.com/blog/2014/10/the-london-to-brighton-veteran-car-run-4th-november-2012 today was the day for us to follow The London to Brighton Veteran Car Run,we left the slumber of our beds at a ungodly hour to reach London in time to capture some images of the cars before they set off, the weather was chucking it down, can't remember the time when we got so wet! thankfully our Nikon's fared better than we did we got some great images of the start and met one or two celebs (Gaby made a new friend) before following the cars down to Brighton for just a little bit of sunshine.
