Wedding Magazine’s Wedding Blog Awards at The Ritz, London………TONIGHT!!!

Wedding Magazine’s Wedding Blog Awards are TONIGHT!

Yes, today is the day of Wedding Magazine’s Wedding Blog Awards Finals, where yours truly has been shortlisted in the ‘Best London Wedding Blog’ category!  
I’m still absolutely chuffed to have been selected and shortlisted alongside the crème de la crème in the wonderful wedding world.  Tonight, the Wedding Blog Awards will be hosting its awards evening at The Ritz………OMG indeed!

Obviously with this being a mega special occassion, I thought it rude not to make an all out effort so decided to call in the help of some of the super duper peeps I know from the wonderful world of weddings and enlist their help to get dolled up!  I am so excited about this!

The action plan for the day – after checking emails, replying to the new wedding enquiries ( one has just been confirmed and booked for next year!!!) and finishing off Claudia and Dave’s wedding – is………….
10.00 am > get nails done by the lovely Laura at @MobileBeauty_
11.30 am > collect tailored dress and all the incredible accessories from Wardrobe Fairy Kim - @kimwdean - who runs Renew (and I promise you every girl needs Kim!) She is the most incredibly creative person I know and she has saved my bacon so many times, constantly coming up trumps, from organsing the most wonderful outfit (whilst I was out of the country photographing the Le Mans 24 hour race and getting everything prepared and ready for me to pick up on the morning) for a glam day at Ascot in the Royal Enclosure, right through to swanky, black-tie events.
12.00 noon > zoom over to Claygate to get ‘lashed‘………lol!  My lashes prettied up by the absolutley amazing Alex - @AlexHollands - whom I recommend to all my Brides and gorgeous girlfriends.
1.10 pm > take Tarquin (my motor) to the garage to be mended coz he is making a ‘clunking’ noise when I turn right…
1.15 pm > the lovely Inga from Beauty Call@Beauty_Call – comes round to get to work on my hair and make up.
3.00 pm > my gorgeous friend Sarah – @Sarah_BLP - who is joining me at the Awards tonight, comes over for her hair and make up session.
3.05 pm > open bottle of champagne! 
4.30 pm > Sarah & I all dolled up and ready to go but have a bit of time to chill and marvel at looking so glam!
5.00 pm > our chariot, which has been arranged by the wonderful James from Driven @weddings_driven who, on finding out about my nomination, insisted Sarah & I arrive in style…….
6.00 pm > arrive at The Ritz for the Wedding Blog Awards Evening, where the glitzy glam, fun-filled evening with champagne, canapés, cool cats from the wedding world and whole lot of award winning awaits!!
After the Awards there is an After-Party to attend but I’ll tell you more about that tomorrow! ;)
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOH!  This is all so frigging exciting!  
I’m still pinching myself to know that I have been shortlisted and am just so delighted that others appreciate (and recognise) the work that is my passion.  Also, as a wedding photographer, I see all my beautiful brides and their bridesmaids get their hair and make-up done by amazing professionals and this’ll be the first time for me.  It will be so brill to share the evening with my super, incredible friend Sarah, whom I know will love every single minute as much as I will.
Righty-ho, I have a jam-packed day to crack on with so best get to it!!! xxx

A big HELLO and thanks for having a peek at the blog! So a little bit about me.........well I absolutely love the wonderful world of photography. I'm lucky enough to work with great people and at each shoot make sure that we have fun whilst getting great photos. I'm based in the UK where I photograph a lot of weddings and lifestyle shoots but also get to travel to far flung destination for a spot of travel, wildlife and car photography. I'm a Licentiate of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers as well as a Licentiate of International Nature & Wildlife Photographers and have won awards for my photography. My work has been published in national newspapers, wedding magazines, travel guide books, blogs and wildlife publications. My favourite colour is orange!
