The Eighties… What a great time, and what a great theme for a 40th Birthday party, and this week I was asked to cover just that!
This year the wedding season came to an end with another local wedding; as I visited the St Francis of Assissi’s Church in Shefford and the Barns in Bedford to help a lovely couple, Guido and Sarah celebrate their wedding.
I’m a regular visitor to Wrest Park near Siloe in Bedfordshire however this summer I had the change to visit there in a professional capacity. One of this year’s wedding couples, Guido and Sarah wanted to do an engagement shoot as part of their wedding package and since we all love Wrest Park it seemed to be a great place to go As part of my wedding service I always like to meet the couple at least twice prior to the wedding, so with a sunny Sunday forecast killing two birds with one stone seemed ideal.

Early January usually marks my annual skiing holiday, and 2015 was no different. I always travel with a camera, but because of the active nature of a skiing holiday I took my trusty (and tiny) Olympus Mju away with me. Although only 5MP and with no manual settings the Mju is basic, but that’s no reason why with some care over composition and exposure it can’t produce some excellent photos, to help remember a great holiday.
