Kim and I had the pleasure of doing Zoe and Michael's beautiful wedding at Hardwick Hall Hotel, Sedgefield in late June.
I had the pleasure of doing Lynsey and Adams beautiful wedding at Hardwick Hall Hotel, Sedgefield in mid June, The weather was fine but with some big dark clouds and quite a strog wind blowing from the lake but this dampen the day.
I have been to Hardwick Hall a few times over the last few weeks taking photos of the newly refurbished Coleman Suite and the on-going refurbishment of the entire hotel to include new carpets and decoration throughout to include bedrooms, boardrooms, reception etc.
I had a great day again with the Learning Curve Group at their staff development day at Hardwick Hall, even if they did throw in a curved ball, when Brenda said “can we have a group photo of all 280 staff’ with no prior warning.
I have covered several events for Brenda and the team now, including their Bollywood themed staff party.
I think the only thing I miss since being self employed is the team work and big family feel that I witnessed at this event well done to all the management team.
There was approximatley a thousand people at one of the northeast most popular events, been sold out year after year, it always amazes me how they manage to serve a thousand people with a fllet steak and lobster, very precise with a bit of waving and pointing to make sure everyone gets served.
Kim and I had the pleasure of doing Joanna and Leilany's beautiful wedding at As You Like It at Jesmond, Newcastle.
I have done several jobs now for Atorus, today was a meeting at their new offices in Durham, If you have noticed there's one of my photo walls being displayed from my 366 project from last year .
"Atorus recently secured investment from Innovate UK for a new disruptive technology business stream.
We had a great time being a part of Natalie and Lauren's Beautiful Wedding at Rockliffe Hall.
The lovely Christening of Sophie.
Called into see Phil today for a inpromptu hair cut and while I was there took a staff photo of the team at Guappo, this was much to the girl's dimays as I got the comments 'we didnt know you were coming have we got plenty lippy on'. I think they all look great dressed to work in this very busy shop based in Shotton Colliery County Durham.
What a year I have had doing this full on project with just one camera the brilliant Fuji X100T.
It has rekindled my love of photography which started many years ago when I got my first real SLR camera, a Fujica 605n a fully manual camera with one 55mm f2 lens.
Some days I have been very low because a lot of things have happened during the year with three very close family and a close friend bereavements, this is more than anyone should really have to deal with, but I still pushed on and took photos every day.
