Baby Everatt

Bit of a day yesterday. I went to see my old friend Helen, her hubby Matt and their brand new baby, just one day old! It was a real privilege to see them all so early on. And in his one day he's managed to develop quite the range of facial expressions. Properly gorgeous. Love love love to family Everatt x x

Gemma and Jo | The Wedding

Welcome to the wedding of Gemma and Jo. 

They wed in the large warehouse church that is St Thomas's Philadelphia, and partied in Millennium Galleries. Both spaces provided their own version of blank canvas - one backed with black drapes and atmospheric lighting to create a cocoon in which to hold the gravity of the vows, but where relationship and family informality could dress the space with dancing children and lessons by Basil Faulty. The other a white open gallery space, where colour could reflect and dance among the laughter and celebrations, backdropped by dark views of a city at rest.

I loved the welcome of Gemma and Jo - and felt easily able to slip among their day and feel at ease in their company. I enjoyed hearing their stories, both those presented in speeches and those told around the table. I enjoyed seeing them move interchangeable between natural family and urban family, seemingly held very well by both, and holding each close too.

All the best to you both.
