Winter Weddings

Winter weather has now firmly set in and all we can hope for is that there isn't too much more rain.

Alternatively there may be a drop or two of snow which can also enhance the scenery for your wedding photographs.

Don't worry though, the frost or snow has never been so bad that weddings couldn't take place.

That Time of Year Again

As happens every year in almost every household the lights for the Christmas tree refused to work prompting a shopping trip in search of replacements.
