In recent weeks I have been hard at work marketing and promoting myself. Apart from the Vintage Wedding Show at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre. I have been busy with wedding consultations in Beaconsfield at The Bellhouse Hotel, where many years ago a very good friend had her wedding reception, the wedding took place at a very quaint church in Denham village, it was a beautiful sunny day and as I set up a group shot outside the church doors a dog appeared followed by a short muddy booted dishevelled looking character. It was no other than Sir John Mills. He wished us well and just carried on.
My office is a short distance from Milton Keynes and I travel there on numerous occasions to see couples about their big day. Horwood House now a favourite, I will be there in two months time and again later in the year. I’m also becoming known to many as THE ‘Aylesbury wedding photographer‘, attending weddings in fabulous venues like Hartwell House. The other day I met a lovely lady who is having a true English Blessing at St Michael and All Angels Church Aston Clinton and then onto The Tythe Barn Launton, Oxon. She resides in Zimbabwe where she got married but wants her traditional blessing in the UK. She now wont be back until two weeks before her wedding, so I have offered all the help she needs to make sure her days goes exactly to plan. In the last week I have also been to see a lovely couple who are planning for their 2014 wedding. It was deep snow when I arrived at their door but after 90 minutes of discussions we parted I hope I can get confirmation on that one it it always a pleasure working at All Saints Church in Leighton Buzzard.
My first meeting after Christmas meant a trip to Ampthill in Bedfordshire to discuss the nuptial requirements of two people planning to get wed at The Swan Hotel in Bedford which again is a superb venue right next to the River Great Ouse.
As I live on the cusp of Three counties; Beds, Bucks and Herts, and the towns of Leighton Buzzard, Tring and Aylesbury and close-by Milton Keynes, Berkhamsted, Stokenchurch, Quainton, Thame, Luton, Dunstable, Hemel Hempstead and further afield to Oxford, St Albans and London. I’m very lucky to get enquiries from such far flung places as Streetley in Berkshire and Northampton.
But I consider that as a supplier to the public there is nothing like meeting a potential client face to face. I’m looking forward to seeing some more amazing couples and being part of their most important day
