Foxes & Ferns: Our Botanical Engagement shoot

As soon as we started wedding planning, everybody bombarded us with the question: "Who's going to photograph your wedding?!" 
George and I are fully launching our wedding photography business this summer as an all out, full-time profession and not just a fun, enterprising, university distraction where I get a legit reason to procrastinate from my degree and take photographs of beautiful people. Lots of our friends and family joked that we'd be photographing our own wedding, using a shutter and a tripod and we sort of laughed nervously. Neither of us could imagine anything more tricky and unappealing!

Coffee + Blossom

Yesterday, I took the last train that I ever would, back to Bath. 
Well, I'm sort of over exaggerating. I probably will take the train to Bath again one day, but this would be the final time I would do it as a student and resident of this delightful city. 
It didn't feel as big as it should have done. 
It felt regular. 
Just an everyday journey. 
I'm struggling to define my life by firsts and lasts these days.
Everything comes and goes in a natural flow and my consciousness barely registers their passing. 
I'm far more focused on being.

Cloud Watching & Weather Lore

'Red sky at night, shepherds delight. Red sky in morning, shepherds warning'

To say that I am fascinated by the weather is an understatement. I adore the weather. All kinds of weather. Storms, fog, mists, rain, sun, showers, high pressure fronts, winds, stillness, auroras, electricals, gales ... I could go on and on. As a child, my favourite story was Wizard of Oz because I was obsessed with tornados and my love of weather has influenced my life so much, that I'm writing a novel about a runaway boy named Aubrey Cirrus who flies a hot air balloon around the sky. It's a kids novel - it's allowed to be daft, okay? :P It's called 'Archipelago of Skye' but if you know me, you already know this!
