This month I have been working on lots of projects, from proms & parties to babies to weddings, and that means for lots of editing and handing over of the finished products. Caroline and Martin have already received their pictures and invited me in while they took their first look through them all. They loved them and especially the shots of their family and three little granddaughters. Next I'm handing over the photos from Karen and Geoffs wedding, along with the picture that I've framed up - hopefully the first image from their big day to be shown off in their new home. They've already seen a few photos that I've blogged from the luxury of their honeymoon suite and I'm looking forward to giving them the rest now that they're arriving back home.
This week Gaynes High School had their year 11 Prom and the lovely Jessi Vann invited me along while she was getting ready, a few snaps with her friends and seeing them off before they all left in very fancy style for Stock Brook Country Club in the flashest hummer I've ever seen.
If you were there on the day or just want to see a few more, I've created a gallery of all the prom-goers group shots which you can see here.
I hope you enjoy flicking through the pictures.

At Baddow Park, Chelmsford
Last week Karen and Geoff had the most beautiful and laid back wedding set in Baddow Park, a stunning venue and the home of Annie Gough who has opened her doors so that happy couples like these two can have their big days in this great setting.
Karen and Geoff only chose to have a handful of family and friends with them to celebrate their day and it made for a very calm and intimate wedding. They were also lucky enough to have picked one of the hottest days of the summer so got to enjoy their informal barbecue outside in a stunning little nook in the garden, and it meant that we were able to explore the grounds properly to get all the best shots that we could.
Here's (quite a long) peak of their day... Grab a cup of tea and put your feet up while these scroll through.
I hope you enjoy them.
What a funny evening!
I have been told that when the Vanns were growing up they used to have nights when they would throw the men out of the house and have the best of times filled with music, drinks and dancing. So for Linda's 65th this year, they did the same again and had a surprise party only for the girls, with lots of laughter, presents and Linda-masks.... you'll see what I mean:

Here's a glimpse of a lovely laid back wedding celebrated at the Holiday Inn in Brentwood. Caroline and Martin made a stiflingly hot summers day a wonderfully calm event, very much about bringing family and friends together and having a good old party... I heard they were dancing away that night until 1 am!
I'm really grateful to have been asked to join in with their day and to get these snaps:
This weekend I was invited to a pre prom party for a group of beautiful year elevens before they rushed off in their black cabs to Stock Brook Country Club in Billericay. I was with the lovely Milhams while Pheobe had her hair and makeup done, we all had a real giggle while she was getting ready and slipping into her Ted Baker dress then, just as the rain began to trickle we met up with the rest of the party-goers.
They all looked stunning and I remember how excited I was to see all the photos of my prom being uploaded to myspace (..!) so I was keen to edit these ones quickly and send them off. I've already heard lovely reviews from the year group.
Here are a few glimpses from the day..
