A Beautiful Gift

We wanted to share something beautiful we received in the post this morning! Our very own family portrait "The Green Family." Ay, Elle, Pepper and Dougie! Love the details, Adams bow tie, Liz's ring and even some cute lil' sprigs of her favourite flower (lovely lavender!) These make wonderful presents and of course we're very fond of supporting small and creative businesses, so if any of you want to check this incredible artist out... Liz Smith Illustration.

Ryan and James's Wedding at The Barns Hotel Bedford

The Barns Hotel was the perfect venue for this celebration, such a stunning backdrop and decorated so beautifully with the help of Ryan and James's planning with lovely pastels, glistening fairy lights and lots of happy faces.. this wedding was definitely one to remember.

Their day was full to the brim of smiles, laughter, jokes and people just having the most amazing time celebrating. The ceremony was perfect and the speeches were emotional. We even popped up our photobooth in the evening, everyone couldn't wait to get involved and it was so much fun! The party continued late into the night, the dancefloor was always full and we even had the chance to pop down our cameras and pick up the tequilas!

Cherished Memories

Some of our favourites from Emily & Ellie's most recent photo shoot! Such expressive, smiley, beautiful little girls! It's been so wonderful to watch Emily, and her older sister grow in their own amazing and unique ways. For someone who is also very close to their sister, I can totally imagine how these two girls will cherish these memories for years to come! How precious is that?! I would love to have had photos like this with my older sister when we were young, such amazing memories to keep. ❤️ I have also been experimenting with creating my own flower crowns for little ones to wear during their shoots, I hope you like them!
