Old Thorns wedding show

Another day spent at Old Thorns for a wedding show yesterday, seems like second home shooting numerous weddings every year for the past 11 years and two, sometimes three wedding shows a year plus a couple of supplier showcase each year also. Always kool to return [second]home… yesterday I was asked by another exhibitor (first timer) if I’d been to Old Thorns before, to which a fellow regular laughed and piped up, “haha, he’s part of the furniture here!” I’ll take that as a compliment 🙂

A slow start as downstairs was full, so it took visitors an hour before they started to trickle upstairs to where we were in the Gatsby and then it was mental for the rest of the day. Doors closed at 3pm but visitors were still flooding in to the Gatsby at that time, I didn’t start packing down until 3.30!

Anyway, a fab show and thank you to all the wonderful people I chatted to, Old Thorns for hosting and PMN for putting on yet another awesome show…

Rhinefield House wedding show

Yesterdays Rhinefield House wedding show was interesting; I’ve been shooting weddings for 20 years now (20 years!!) and I’ve never shot at Rhinefield House. It’s one of a few very well known and local wedding venues that I’ve not had the pleasure of shooting at. It’s always amazed me that these venues seem to elude my shooting prowess, perhaps they only allow their recommended suppliers to shoot there (which would be very strange behaviour indeed) who knows, but anyway, it’s stuuuuuuunniiiiiing… oh maaan I want to shoot a wedding there now!!!!

Another amazing wedding show at Old Thorns

Yesterday saw us rock another amazing wedding show at Old Thorns #secondhome with it being the biggest one yet- 80 exhibitors and 1000 brides through the door!!!!  Crazy times!!!!

We had current clients rock up and say hi also as they continued their journey of wedding planning, and a couple of friends surprise hi as they check out Old Thorns as their wedding venue; always lovely to see and say hi again.

Cuppa is calling and I have a stack of emails to ping out now… I’ll try harder next time to write something worth reading- this one is proper sh*t 🙂

Holy wowzers, what a weekend hashtag frazzled!

I’m frazzled today, we’re frazzled today; today is a day off to recover from being frazzled, after an exceptionally frazzling weekend. So yes, very much a, “holy wowzers, what a weekend!” indeed and the hashtag frazzled comment has been earned #frazzled.

I’m going to keep this short’n’sweet (like my ‘lighting girl’ lol) as no amount of caffeine is going to help today!

So why are we so frazzled today you ask? Well, let me give you the run down…

Saturday was our largest wedding of this year; 176 day guest up at Old Thorns with an early start and a late finish, throw in some rain forecasting and hey presto, a tiring day for us. A fab day, but a tricky and tiring one none-the-less. Follow that with an early start on the Sunday for a new (well, a new old one I should say) PMN wedding show at Goodwood Racecourse with lots of happy chatting and, BOOM, a v.tired Such trying to write my Monday blog. Trying? Struggling more like!

Y’know what? I’m going to give up today with this work malarkey, I need a cuppa and feeding… over and out 🙂 x

Wedding show at Lainston House, Hampshire

Yet another totally dull update after yesterdays wedding show at Lainston House, which saw us showing off as usual with our awesome display of epicness. Lainston House is a gorgeous venue, close to Winchester in Hampshire and offers tasty locations and backdrops for wedding photography- I do like shooting weddings there, hence attending the wedding show yesterday!

So, fingers crossed we convert some of the interested couples and get to shoot there again soon.

Short and sweet today.. ttfn… 🙂

Wedding show at Old Thorns Manor Hotel, Liphook, Hampshire

Yup another dull update afer another amazing wedding show at Old Thorns. We kicked ass as always, with our caffeine-fuelled wit and enthusiasm, oh and amazing work on display! We chatted to looooooads of couples and entourages! I soooo should get commission from Old Thorns for bigging them up so much as I always do, I don’t I should add!!  Fab venue anyway and I know it soooo well. Struggling with words today. I’m going to give up. Must try harder next time! I’m soooo crap at this 🙂 x

Wedding show at New Place, Shedfield, Hampshire

It’s been a couple of years since we last did a wedding show at New Place, but true to form it was another fab show with plenty of couples to chat to and other exhibitors to ignore (except the ones we like obviously!!) Nah only kidding.. or am I? I think I’ve had too much caffeine this morning so I best keep it short before I bounce off on a tangent of meaningless. Cheers for stopping to chat to Sarah and I and that’s all folks. Caffeine hit time. 🙂 x

Wedding show at Lainston House, Hampshire

Lainston House is a gorgeous venue, stunning in fact and a joy to photograph weddings at, so of course we decided to try out the latest addition to the PMN Wedding Fayres portfolio! Met some new suppliers, chatted to couples and genrally showed off (standard).  Cannot be arsed to write a long drawn out and dull post today, I need more caffeine before I attempt that, so I’ll sign off for now with a thank you and I best crack on with my Monday admin.duties!  Laterzzzzz 🙂 x

Another wedding show at Old Thorns Manor Hotel, Liphook, Hampshire

Another wedding show at Old Thorns yesterday. Always busy. Thank you….

*Dramatic pause to go fetch another cuppa*

Another crazy-busy wedding show at Old Thorns yesterday with loads of couples chatted to and contact details taken to bombard with information today! Thank you to everyone who came and chatted to Sarah and I, we have a load of details to input and pester now. Watch those junk folders for stuff you don’t think you need but you’re going to receive anyway, and then realise how useful they really are, and then commission us to shoot your magical day. You know it makes sense!!  TTFN 🙂 x

Wedding show at Old Thorns Manor Hotel, Liphook, Hampshire

Gotta love a wedding fayre/show, whatever you wish to term it, up at Old Thorns Manor Hotel- always stacked with loads of folk to chat to! Yesterday was mental-busy and today I’m struggling to wake my head up and come up with anything to write about, let alone anything interesting to write about!! So maybe I’ll keep it brief and just say a thank you to everyone who attended the show, especially those who chatted to Sarah and I.  I best go ping out some information emails to you lot… TTFN… #brief
