Summer round up.
We’ve had a fun summer, in spite of the weather, and met some lovely people – too many to include here. As for the highlights – boats, horses and reds cars spring to mind!
So now we move into ‘Show Season’, starting with The Wedding Event Company biggie at the Brentwood Centre this weekend, 3rd and 4th September – we’ve not exhibited at this event before so let’s hope it lives up to the hype!. We’ll be over to the left of the stage as you face it so stop and say hello if you’re there.
Graphistudio have continued to produce our wonderful books which I can say with all honesty, no customer has ever been anything other than deeply satisfied with. Blown away would be a more accurate description! We’ll continue to use Graphi next year (or until someone can do better) and hope to find a chance to visit their fabulous Ceconi Castle HQ. Not far from the Alps – could be a firms outing at ski time!
So, we’ve had men wearing dresses, men carrying oars (no, not a pun!), a bride on a boat, a bride on a horse, and a bride who fell off a swing.
We’ve had old cars, new cars but best of all red cars! An E type Jaguar and a Ferrrari – both spectacular but in different ways. The same applies to us ‘The Photographers’, two differing but complimentary styles to give you the very best coverage of your day. I’m obviously the Ferrari by the way!
We also picked up some new names this summer. John and Ian, aka Baz and Eebi, happened to point out that in a dodgy stag weekend photo one of our grooms looked remarkably like John Luke Picard – ‘Let it be so’ we exclaimed! His retort was that one of us was a Phil Collins lookalike and the other the dead spit of Theo Paphitis. Well I said, “There’s something in the air tonight’ and John said. “I’m out”! The groom was obviously delusional with pre-wedding nerves!
We only had a couple of ‘diplomatic incidents’ this summer. The consoling arm around the shoulder of the grumpy granny – who had just had rotor cuff surgery! The posing a family group shot including two brothers .’”Too gay”, and ‘Far too gay” we said whilst adjusting their stance. of course it turns out they weren’t brothers but partners but were kind enough to roll with it! And to finally I had to try and kerb jovial John’s favourite term, ‘That’s the money shot,” for a wedding that was more religious that the average – but of course it slipped out and I had to explain why it was so called! Had it been a winter round up I could of mentioned the man at an event in Sheffield who went nuts when ‘Ruche your tie sir’ John ruched before asking . “It was how I beep beep like it and I can beep beep dress my beep beep self you beep beep beep.” Bit of a grumpy sort in general we we informed, but a lesson learned.
So enough about us here are just a few snaps from the summer.
