I just wanted to share a few images of the table settings at the Wedding I photographed on Saturday at the White Hart. Flowers were kept simple and the tables were draped in antique lace and the chairs ribboned in the same material. Something different. Will add the name of the Table Dressing Company in due course.

Today saw a beautiful start to the day – and a local Wedding at St. Chads C of E Church and the reception at The Hey Green Hotel, Marsden.I arrived at the Church at 11.45 to find guests already filing into the Church – but no sign of the Groom. He did arrive as he promised just before the arrival of the 4 bridesmaids and the Brides Mother. The Bride arrived looking radiant. After the ceremony, a swift change in settings on the camera after the dim lighting inside the church to blinding sunshine outside, the couple greeted their guests and then proceeded to the reception in style in a beautiful ivory Daimler. As usual the Hey Green staff were extremely welcoming and everyone was able to relax before sitting down for a Roast Beef dinner – it smelt wonderful.Here are a few select images from the day.

(NB: Images shown in this slideshow are product images, not those of JGP – I shall show some images of my designs in a following blog post)
Inside the photographs are printed straight onto thick pages that are laminated so providing a robust image. They are all beautifully handmade and printed by my printing company – so expect high quality.
I now have a new range of frames available for framing your prints. Frames can fit from the smallest print (6×4″) up to enormous (60×40″ ). They come in a range of beautiful contemporary materials to suit any image and room decor.

The New Year has started off well with 2 sessions in the studio before the 4th of January. The studio is also to be hired at the end of at the week for the use of a catalogue clothing shoot by a fellow photographer – Mark Gibbons Yet again this morning saw a fall of snow and so the boots came out again – although rather worse for wear!
I attended the 3rd Marketing seminar last night at Dukinfield town hall. We investigated email marketing and ‘played’ with a piece of email software. Seems like a useful piece of equipment. It seems a time consuming way of marketing but interesting non the less.
