“All because two people fell in love…”

Lots of planning and perfection went into last nights party which was to celebrate my parents thirty years of marriage (what a milestone!) The weather was perfect, the lights were wonderful, food amazing and the guests were fabulous.


We couldn’t have asked for a better day – the only thing that would have finished it all off in the bestest way was if Grandad could have been there. However he had lots of visitors throughout the weekend which was more than we could ask for! (I just realised I don’t have a photo of my parents together on the evening – here’s a few lovely guests instead!

Cream tea was in abundance at three PM with a splash of Pimms available for those who wanted it too. The scones were amazing and there were so many!

The evening was great, a little chilly for August but the Fire Pits kept us warm and the lighting later on in the evening warmed the garden up slightly. The BBQ was amazing, thank goodness a caterer was brought in though because there were many hungry mouths to feed and lots of prep to do! The tidying up…..not so fun ;)

My parents didn’t want gifts and asked that anyone who wanted to, put a donation in the tin for Alzheimers UK and a charity walk that my sister is doing. We raised over £200…. amazing, incredibly generosity from everybody involved so thank you for that as well! If you would like to donate please visit this page.

And bless our little Maisy who didn’t last the evening, choosing to curl up inside on the sofa by herself…

“What i like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”

– Karl Lagerfield

It’s amazing how something very quickly becomes a way of life. Although looking at the statistics, and considering I’m on day 173 of this challenge, it might not appear so easy on the outside. However taking photographs every day, really has become something of a routine and it took getting almost halfway through the year to reach that point. Incredible!

Today it’s my parents Wedding Anniversary and therefore I decided to photograph the flowers that my sister and I bought for them. They’re quite pretty, and have a lovely bird of paradise flower in the middle – so it makes a bit of a change to ordinary bunches!

Yesterday’s strawberries and raspberries were so nice by the way! Thanks for all the feedback on the shots I used in yesterday’s blog! Happy Weekend…
