What is Valentine’s Day?

Flowers, a card and a meal out? It’s origins belie a mixed history. The day of romance is named for a Christian martyr and dates back to the 5th century, but it’s beginnings can be found in the Roman holiday of Lupercalia. This was a pastoral festival held on 15th February to avert evil spirits and purify the city, releasing health and fertility.

Ancient rituals have been adulterated with a modern commercial twist. 

The special day falls on a ‘school night’ this year so do we crack open a bottle of fizz? Fuzzy head at half past week! We have realised that we are officially a ‘Coople’, a term used in an illustration by the very talented Jessie Cave. It goes something like this… Jed & Emma have been together for 9 years. They are one of those infuriatingly happy and committed cooples who live for the moment someone asks “how did you meet?”

Deep down we all like the high we get from making others feel special, but how we feel about ourselves is where that happiness truly stems from.

Enjoy February 14th, whether you’ve planned for it or not.

Wedding Fair – Sunday 29th January Bury Farmers Club

If anyone is in Bury St Edmunds this Sunday, come along to the Farmers Club in Northgate Street – between 11am and 4pm.

They are holding their first Wedding Fair, at which I will be displaying a portfolio of work and launching a range of wedding ‘packages’ to choose from, which will hopefully suit most needs and budgets.

Looking forward to meeting some Bride & Groom’s to be!



New wedding photography video…

I’ve loved the idea of having a video created from stills and now have just that, created for me by Iidoo.co.uk

After selecting a few images from various wedding shoots and run them in sequence, they tell the story of your big day and portray a little anticipation, happiness and love from the photographs, trimmed with a few words and music.

Hopefully it’s long enough, without being tedious and just enough images to make people want to see more about my work as a Suffolk Wedding photographer. More portfolio images can be viewed here – Wedding Portfolio.
