SAW Celebration of Cranes - Somerset Event Photography

Can't believe it's been a year since documenting this great community event: The Celebration of Cranes in Stoke St Gregory for a great arts organisation, Somerset Art Works (SAW). A chilly winter's evening brought to life by a artists, musicians, locals schools, businesses and family. This event celebrated five years of The Great Crane Project and the return of the crane to the Somerset Levels. 

I had the pleasure of photographing the lead up to the performance as well as filming the event. The video below is a compilation of highlights from the crane celebrations event in Stoke St Gregory on Sat 22 Nov 2014, a lovely little village in Somerset where local primary schools took part in creating wonderful illuminated crane lanterns with artist Sarah Butterworth. Great turn out and atmosphere with fun upbeat music by Tim Hill and The Big Noise Street Band. Love community events and projects like this, especially in the picturesque landscape.

Thank you SAW for another great documentation project! Look forward to sharing more of their projects soon from this year.

Wedding Fayre Favourites - Hampshire Vendors

Went to my first wedding fayre in Hampshire this year with my partner, Rob last Sunday and had a fantastic time finding out about local wedding vendors. Hosted by PMN Wedding Fayre in the lovely DeVere's Venue New Place hotel, it was fun playing an engaged couple planning our wedding as all the vendors asked when our special date was... so we rolled with it! :) Also it's perfectly normal to be planning your wedding before you've got engaged... right? :) So I picked loads of flyers and leaflets and whittled it down to my favourites from the day shown in the photo above. Also had a laugh in the 217 Events photo booth where Rob and & dressed up with lots of props (see photo postcard in the middle).

I'm buzzing with lots of wedding ideas ready to launch my wedding photography packages for 2016.

Here are some of my favourite vendors from the day of whom I'd love to work with!

Also picked up Your Hampshire & Dorset Wedding magazine filled with lots of great ideas. 

Looking to collaborate on wedding shoots, need assistance or wanting to have new professional product/portrait photography to boost your wedding services? Please email: and I'd be happy to discuss your ideas.
Thank you!
