Eve Lily Charity Wedding Catwalk Show

I’m really excited to write this blog post for you as it’s about a recent and very successful charity event that we held earlier this month at the gorgeous City Rooms. It seems like a life time ago now, after a number of sleeps to recover I have some lovely coverage for you to cast your eyes over. I hope you can see what a great event it was. Thank you to all our guests who came and supported us and helped achieve a wonderful atmosphere for everyone involved.

So to the event, this was in aid of a very special girl and an amazing charity, which we raised a wonderful amount of money for.

Isla, as some of you will know, is currently suffering from Leukemia and undergoing treatment with the support of her family. Isla is only little, a gorgeous character with a beautiful cheeky smile and strong personality, I can only imagine this is how she and her family get through this tough time.

Now everyone loves the idea of a magician right? Well I have seen The Trixta in action (although not on this night, which was a real shame) and he is fantastic, a real showman and certainly entertained our guests brilliantly, thank you Ash.

The Vernon Sisters provided us with wonderful entertainment for the opening of the event and were fabulous!

Our event started with a bang with the fantastic Vernon Sisters who offered their services to help us achieve such a wonderful entertaining evening for everyone who came, I can’t tell you how brilliant they were, I wanted to watch them all night but had to work so only caught moments of their performance.

Friday Friends :) The Talented Nigel Ord Smith Photography!

Today’s Friday Friends is someone who see’s wedding’s from a totally different perspective from most, as they get to see it behind a lens. I am so happy that not only have they agreed to be a Friday Friend, but mainly because they can let you in on their thoughts, and great tips when its comes to your wedding day.This can only be a great thing when planning or making wedding related decisions.

I can’t speak highly enough of them, they make wedding’s a joy from start to finish and throw in a few jokes along the way (I can confirm, I also have been subjected, I mean had the pleasure of listening to these jokes on many occasions). A quality guy, with a quality brand and a quality camera, which is a must, seeing as he is an amazing photographer!

So here’s to this week and the fantabulous Nigel Ord Smith……

NIGEL ORD SMITH PHOTOGRAPHY 

I actually cannot remember exactly where and when I met Nigel, a passing meeting when at a local venue rings a bell. This obviously sounds a little rude and as if it’s insignificant, quite the opposite. The reason why I can’t remember exactly is because we have had so many more meetings, weddings, fayre’s, show’s, party’s and such like, my memory is swamped with all of them! Which is obviously a good thing.

The thing I love about Nigel other than his dry sense of humour, is that he is just fantastic at understanding what weddings are all about. How each and every one should be as important as the last. You will never be a number with Nigel and that is just how it should be with wedding’s.

The other thing I have learnt and really appreciate since knowing Nigel and other photographers in the industry, is that pictures aren’t just pictures, they are your wedding. The one reminder when the day is over and all your friends and family have gone home, when you are back from your honeymoon and the day is becoming a more distant memory, and when you have sent your thank you cards out, they will be the one thing you can turn to, to remind yourself of just how great a day, it truly was.

So Nigel, if you don’t already know, run’s Nigel Ord Smith Photography, he specialises in Weddings, Portraits, Boudoir and now Dogs! That’s the great thing about Nigel, he doesn’t shoot and click, he captures happiness and beautiful moments for his clients, whether it’s a bride and groom, a little fairy or a scrumptious bull-dog. (My references will make much more sense after you visit Nigel’s site, a must see. Nigel Ord Smith Photography

So far we have worked on a number of weddings together, have been partnering on some fantastic projects, including boudoir and styled shoots and have so much in the pipeline I want to squeal with excitement. He has become a wonderful friend and someone to know in the wedding world!
