Karen and Christopher 29th October 2009

Karen and Christopher exchanged their wedding vows on a wonderful autumnal day in October.  The venue was Farrington Lodge Leyland, where Fotoamour has photographed a number of weddings.   It is a nice venue with plenty of outdoor space – gardens that are good for photography.  I have only ever been in one bedroom with a four poster bed, which was certainly very pleasant.  It can’t have been that long since they updated the bar and built a patio and it has made a massive difference because previously guests were split between reception rooms – breaking up wedding parties into smaller groups and its not so good to get people mingling.  Now everyone gets to be together which is a good thing to get people from both sides of the family mixing.  It just makes for a much nicer atmosphere.

The cake was by Victoria Cakes of Chorley – contact 01257 234225 or have a look at their website www.victoriacakes.co.uk

I was really pleased with some of the shots I took of the couple together as the light in the wonderful gardens at Farrington Lodge was lovely.  Karen and Chris were also really easy to work with so I could take my time a little to make the most of the golden afternoon light.

Their daughter, Holly was just adorable – not one of those cheesy kids who grin every time the camera is waved in their direction.  Its really difficult to photograph camera kids  because you just don’t get anything of their personality.  Holly made me work but I loved loads of the pictures I got of her.  I know she’s crying here but she was stressed just before the wedding – too much going on, too much being asked of her.  I just wanted to give her a cuddle.

Then she decided to have some fun with me…..!

The pictures will be ready very shortly guys and I’m looking forward to seeing you soon.

Valerie and Guido 18th July 2009

Its about time I stopped talking and started showing you all some pictures – otherwise you’ll get bored.

Valerie telephoned me one dark and gloomy February evening and asked me if I would photograph her wedding.  These are the telephone calls that every photographer loves – no messing around, no comparing your work to everyone else’s, no quibble.  So you can imagine that I was really looking forward to photographing the wedding especially as it was at the lovely Rufford Old Hall.

They had great cars, great drivers but sadly I don't have the information on who provided the service

I also loved the name she was just about to take on – Valentini.  How cool is it to be called Valerie Valentini – I think it is so pretty!

Val chose the zingy colours of the flowers which worked brilliantly against the lush greenery and the black and white of the Hall

Anyhow here are some pictures because finally today Guido, Valerie’s husband, is picking up their pictures.  Its been a long wait for them because the preview book was due to arrive back right in the middle of our holidays so had to be delayed and I couldn’t order the frame until we returned.  But I think they’ll be delighted with the results.

Guido looked really proud - and so he should because Val is gorgeous!

Thanks for your patience Val and Guido.  You have a great family.

Just a quick aside – Val, my friend has been looking at your photos and wants to know the secret of your fabulous skin?  We are summising that it is down to genes and drinking loads of water – because there isn’t a skincream on the market that gives you that kind of complexion!!
