Hi, I’m Michelle. Mummy to Oscar and Esmé (AKA Doughnut and Ratbag), wife to Reece, who I still call ‘Boyfriend’ because it took us 16 years to get married, and I can’t get out of the habit of it, and owner of the delectable white boxer dog Stanley who keeps me sane (apart from when he is stealing packages and eating them)!
I love to travel and just haven’t been to enough places yet, but I’m working my way around, I love to cook for friends, family or anyone who pops round really and I like to play around with interiors and have this dream of being on ‘Grand Designs’ one day.
I’ve been addicted to photography ever since starting my Fine Art degree back in (ah-hem) the late 90s or thereabouts and literally have my dream job in photographing weddings and portraits. I get such a buzz out of capturing weddings in a unique and creative way, always looking for gorgeous light or an interesting composition to make your images different to the usual wedding photography.
I live in the quiet market town of Bedford but, having been brought up on the coast try to get to Devon or Cornwall as often as possible. Meanwhile I can be caught walking in the woods, chasing the kids around a park, cooking something healthy and delicious or drinking tea, or gin and tonic, time and day dependent. My husband an I share a love of music and can still occasionally be found trying to bust some moves on a dance floor (but more often a friend’s kitchen).
On your wedding day I’ll be excited, organised, calm and unobtrusive but I will almost definitely have to suck up a tear during the ceremony and/or the speeches. Your day literally means the world to me and I like to get involved. How do I get those crazy dance floor images you might ask? By getting stuck in to some party moves!
