My regular readers will know that I devoted last year's blog to a personal 52-week photographic project on my home town of Shoreham-by-Sea. The project had - and continues to have - many wonderful and unexpected outcomes, but one of my favourites has to be meeting Elizabeth, a Shoreham resident and one of the committee members of Shoreham's Wordfest. Now in its fourth year, Wordfest is 'an eclectic festival of words, language and the human connections they inspire'. At Elizabeth's request, I was happy to provide several of my Shoreham images to help illustrate the Wordfest brochure, which is being distributed tomorrow (as I write) at Shoreham Farmer's Market.
But the story doesn't end there! Elizabeth and I got on so well when we met, that after seeing some of my work over a glass of wine one evening, she and her fiancé asked me to photograph their wedding! So later this month I'll be scaling the steps of gorgeous Lewes castle to capture their nuptials al fresco, followed by celebrations on the beach. I really can't wait, not least because the couple have a great sense of humour, as demonstrated by the fun we had on their engagement shoot in Brighton's North Laines. Here's a few of my favourites:
And the perfect way to end our shoot - a pint at one of the couple's favourite haunts, The Mash Tun.
