In so many ways tonights Just One goes against all my non-traditional blood…but then I’m a sucker for little girls now that Holly is growing up. So let’s just give it a title…how about ‘Evolution’ and then I can call it arty :)
My Just One…and yes, its an idea borrowed from many others but one I hadn’t tried…sometimes its nice to do a ‘cover’ version.
OK…no one actually fell out. But I did take some pictures yesterday of the kids as it was Nicola’s birthday. Something I haven’t been doing too much lately. Not much to say…oh, except that the world has a new number. When playing hide and seek with Evan: “fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, eighteen, nineteen, twenteen”
Reading one of mummy’s cards
I love my brother…honest
Dancing…to Michael Jackson — seriously!
Evan tests the smellies
A little nightcap
Cake…love the cake!
Today is Nicola’s birthday. What better birthday treat than to have your kids plastered all over the internet…oh wait…that kind of sucks when you think about it. But never mind, that’s what you get.
Nicola is the backbone, the spirit and life of the family. Without her..well, I would just never make the bed! Happy birthday hun!
Playing in the pop up tent
“My Mummy rocks!”
I’ve put up a load of slideshows on the main website over the past week. Just thought some of you might be interested so here are a few links:
- Jessica and Jason (aka the horse wedding — and not, that’s not an insult) — Little Missenden, Buckinghamshire
- Catherine and James — Winchester and Lainston House, Hampshire
- Anne and Clyde — Tithe Barn, Hampshire
- Vicki and Ben — Le Talbooth, Essex
Hope you enjoy!
Emilie and James (J, Jamie, Dude) .. now there’s a wedding I won’t forget. I worked in Hampton Court Palace and I still have my head. That’s memorable…the Bride was B-U-tiful…that’s memorble too. And its also the day that England took 8 wickets in the time it took to sign the register and start the Wedding Breakfast…not that I was noticing or anything. Sometimes a venue just plays to your strengths and Hampton Court Palace is one of them. Great contrasts of light, always a crowd and wonderful outside spaces. I now pray to the wedding gods to get the chance to go back!
Quite ironic…I don’t think I ever saw her NOT smile!
Emilie’s flip phone had a unique wallpaper
Yeah..I got a shoe shot here too…but flowers in a loo roll takes the cake!
Strange bridal ritual? No. Lesson in the horrors of white balance? Sorta. Emilie gurgling mouthwash? Spot on!
I only kept this in the blog…
So that I could put this one in (just so nobody accused me of being a beret wearing arty)
My ‘Just One’
I’m no expert but I reckon Emilie’s Dad was quite pleased his first look
This photo…sponsored by Evian
Sorry..not much in the Church…any complaints directly to the Vicar (grrrrrr)
Off to the guillotine?
Lunch is served (the folks at HCP will get it)
I don’t who that dude is but he’s packin’ photo heat
Reinsert tongue, close mouth
I don’t get that same feeling as above…but then he’s probably pretty happy with that
Write your own story…just start with the hands far right!
All table plans should be reflectors
You’ll notice the quality of light change throughout the speeches…this is because they were between each course and it was nearly dark by the last one
Judge of all and knows the secrets of your childhood…therefore prepare for a butt whippin’. James’ brother Ben gets the house going. Strangely the robe was hired but the wig…well, the wig he already had. No explanation for this I’m afraid…at least not one he was willing to share.
Imagines what the wig is all about
I dance…with help from my little friends
Don’t feed the animals (strangely I think they’ll find that a compliment!)
Back by Popular Demand (or rather by Rob demand) — Darren!
Health and Safety dictates that I inform folks that rice at 2 feet is quite HARD!
Catching the side angle
Actually I like this far better than my own
So I say “hey D, did you see Dad editing his speech, I got it..have a look” to which Darren says “you mean THIS ONE!”
By the way…there are more images from the wedding on Facebook. To view them, visit the Shootinghip Facebook Fan Page.
