summer weddings

Weddings always have a certain charm to them no matter what time of year it is.  The changing of the seasons gives each wedding it's own special character and I love seeing how the colour themes and flowers change as the year rolls round.

I must admit though, I really, really love summer weddings. They always conjure up visions of peonies, Kath Kidston style fresh colours, Pimms and  lovely, balmy receptions on the beautifully manicured lawn of a country house.

It is very rarely  actually like that but whatever it's like, you have to love an English summer wedding.

Here are a few of the flowers from our last wedding.  I'll post more later.

Ok, I know this next one isn't a flower photo but I really liked the pretty colours and the depth of field in it.

I've got loads more to share with you over the next week or so but I have to wait til all my couples are back from their honeymoons and have seen their photos before I post them on here.

See you soon.

Sorting out.

I've been having a sort out of my personal photos from last year. I came across this one which was one of my absolute favourites. I know it's not topical at all since it's 25 degrees outside and blazing sunshine but, hey ho. It's a beaut.

Race for Life

Well, I did it. Yesterday was the Cancer Research Race for Life  in our neck of the woods. Daughter in law Gemma, friend, Penny, Me, Twitchy the dog and 1697 other women entered.

Friend Penny set off like a hare and jogged the whole course. me and Gembolina completed it by doing a brisk walk -  this body wasn't built for jogging - in 40 minutes.  Since the dog came along as well and completed the course with us she also got a medal. Sweet!

Many, many thanks to all those who sponsored me, I not only reached my sponsorship target but exceeded it. We've all already put our names down for next year.

Here are a couple of  pics, first:  DIL and me all ready to race.

Next: this is us after the race and  looking a more than a bit  flushed, with us is  our friend Penny and the dog, who's proudly wearing her medal - as are we.

Yes you're right, they are tutus and fairy wings we're wearing. Well, you know, one has to dress for the part and we didn't want to look silly or anything.
