Steve and Tara's Wedding - 1st March '08 - Church of Holy Rood / Great Tythe Barn, Tetbury

I always remember Tara & Steve as the couple who came to see me during a weekday.... sounds odd I'm sure but it's the exception rather than the rule to see someone mid week daytime rather than weekends or evenings.

A super couple, really easy going and relaxed on the day which was great. The weather was warm for early March and helped the day run with ease. The only 'sticky' point was set to be the Vicar who was apparently very restrictive on what photos were going to be allowed in the church. (ohhh... you all know my thoughts on that, I'm sure!)

Anyway, a surprising slight U-turn by the Vicar meant some sweet shots during the ceremony were captured; despite the initial restrictions that had been imposed. Check out a few of my favs below.

Ahh, Tara's dog, isn't he cute. He was a rescue dog and very nervous around people.... worry not though, I befriended him with my special dog whispering powers (or so Tara told me so).

I love this photo above. Probably one of my top favs from the day. I think this'll make an appearance on my website somewhere soon.

Some super strong sun was great for the guests, but as many people may know, a tough condition to work with as a photographer. None the less the results can be really rewarding when it all falls into place. This shot below is a real scorcher.

Little miss sassy & the strange cat

Monday is Daisy day for me and it appeared little miss sassy had some ideas of her own on how to spend it. Just seconds after Ali left for work, Daisy discovered these sun glassless and teamed them up with the scarf & handbag. Now tell me.... how does a girl learn these things at such a young age? Is taste for nice shoes & handbags passed on genetically? This could be the answer. Her concept of wearing the glasses the right way up clearly went out the window though......mind you, they did stay on better this way as I later found out, so perhaps she already knew something I didn't.

So we had some fun pottering around the house fully togged up before it was soon discarded for something else of equivalent interest to a 1 year old - like a wooden spoon, or empty cereal box (kids are like bees to honey with such treasure).

Anyway, the day rolled on, but now my cat was acting oddly? Here he is in the shower. Yes, you may ask, "why in the shower?" Well, to cut a long story short, Freddie doesn't like to drink water from his cat bowl.. ohh no, that'd be too simple. For some reason he prefers the kitchen sink or tap, any glass of unguarded water, or yes..... you guessed, the shower tray!

He's also taken to finding inventive places to sleep for the day, typically a spot where no one will discover him and therefore disrupt his 16 hours beauty sleep. This is the latest find; namely Daisy's dirty linen basket. Such a cosy spot and very private once the lid closes back down when you're in - amazing.

Note the discarded glasses & scarf now!

Bad boy...

So today I've been bad, well, not so much bad, just gone against the grain when photo editing. The golden rule is, NEVER look through wedding / portrait photos randomly, just to see a few. Sit down and sort them all out, otherwise it just duplicates the work.

But hey, I couldn't resist a sneaky peek at yesterdays wedding shots and here was one that stood out. Sweet.
