What I loved this month: October 2018

I swear it rolls around to the end of every month, and for every single one I sit here like ‘it can’t be that time again already’! Well, here goes. In October I took a much needed post-wedding season holiday, did a few shoots that weren’t wedding related (!), and started to embrace cosy autumn nights in.

  1. Dominican Republic

This month I took a trip to the Dominican Republic for some rest and relaxation with my other half 🙂 We were after some autumn sun and mainly wanted to relax on a beach and do not much else. I’m generally rubbish at these sorts of holidays and get bored, but I must say, it was a real delight. I read four books.. FOUR! I swam, we drank lots of cocktails, and generally ate our body weight everyday.

2. Brand Photography

This month I shot some stuff that wasn’t wedding related :O As part of a rebrand at my day job I’ve been shooting brand photography and portraits in our London office. It’s been great to get some of my London colleagues on camera! I also did my first sports shoot, with Marc from Pure Fitness in Shoreditch. As someone who loves fitness, I was pretty excited about this one, and it was great to do something a bit different. Shooting in a dark studio was challenging but really fun!

3. Back to 2005 with Bloc Party

Last week, I went to Ally Pally with my best friend to see Bloc Party play Silent Alarm in full. When Silent Alarm originally came out, I was fully obsessed and immersed in the indie scene of that time, but never managed to see Bloc Party until about their third album. The show was absolutely incredible – it truly took me back to that era. Even though half the band have now moved on, the performance was exceptional and I am so impressed by their new drummer – she was a machine! Fingers crossed for ‘A Weekend in The City’ tour as that is actually my fav BP album.

4. Getting the chop

I’ve been growing my hair for what feels like forever, and hadn’t had it cut since January (don’t tell my hairdresser). In that time I’ve experimented with pink and some changes in colour and after coming back from holiday decided it was in an appalling state. On a whim I decided to get it all chopped off. I used to have an A line bob about 5 years ago and it was my absolute fav hair cut… so its back! It’s so refreshing.. although not used to having a cold neck!

5. Redemption 

On Friday night I welcomed in the weekend with a relaxing dinner with a friend at Redemption. It’s an all vegan and alcohol free restaurant in Shoreditch, specialising in the healthiest food in London. We had been before but had the summer menu, so it was great to try their more hearty options. We both had the mushroom and walnut bolognese.. not even kidding, it was the richest and most comforting bolognese I’ve had in forever! We were going all out, so ordered a dessert each as well – if you’re going, I can’t recommend the banoffee pie enough. It was INSANELY GOOD. Sadly, we couldn’t even finish our desserts as we were so full – next time we know to share them!

6. The Vietnam War – Ken Burns

This month, I’m off to Vietnam with my best friend for 3 weeks. I absolutely can’t wait! Through all our planning, I realised I actually didn’t know much about the history of the country. I knew there had been a huge war with America, but had never really learnt about it or knew the full story. I’m about half way through Ken Burns’ documentary series on the subject, which you can find on Netflix. It’s a heavy watch, but is thoroughly interesting. It touches not just on the Vietnam war, but pretty much the last 100 years of Vietnam’s history. It’s definitely opened my eyes, not just about Vietnam’s geography and history, but also American history.

Ok, here comes my reading list review for October, which thanks to holiday is probably the longest list in a few months. I also got a deal which means I have Amazon Unlimited until Christmas, so these books are all available on there. So far I’m a bit disappointed with their selections, so if any one has recommendations or tips, drop me a comment!

The Note –  Zoë Folbigg: This book is a bit of a love story, about a woman who gives a man on her train a love note. Ensue a long game of ‘will they, won’t they’, but an enjoyable read, particularly as it was set in London and very relatable. 4/5

Things We Never Said – Nick Alexander: Another bit of a romantic story – I guess I go for easier books when I’m on holiday! The story of a widower who is left a box of photographs by his just passed wife. I really enjoyed this book – It affirmed the importance of photography in life, and was a refreshing take on love. It showed that across a life time theres up and downs, but also leaves you with the feeling that you shouldn’t take any of that for granted or leave things unsaid. 4.5/5

Silent Victim – Caroline Mitchell:  This was meant to be a thriller, but while it kept me turning the page, it wasn’t as dramatic as I was hoping. The end felt quite rushed and over quickly. Still, a good holiday read. 3/5 

What have you been loving in October? Hope you are enjoying the seasonal period – Happy Halloween (and bonfire night!)

Travel: Tokyo Part 1 – Imperial Palace Gardens, Chiyoda & Akihabara

Wide shot of Akihabara in Tokyo at night

Back in June I was lucky enough to go to Tokyo. For those of you that don’t know, my day job alongside the wedding photography is as a Creative Producer for a digital agency. As part of an ongoing project, I was being sent to direct and produce a series of videos for one of our biggest clients. The shoot itself was a week along, and I decided to extend my first ever trip to Japan by tacking on just under a week of holiday. I was going alone and before I went it seemed like this big terrifying thing. I was super excited but in the back of my mind was thinking ‘what if I can’t direct this, how do I direct a Japanese crew, what if this is just way out my depth’. As for the solo travelling time I was equally nervous – I’ve always wanted to travel alone, I just didn’t think the first time would be right on the other side of the world.

All of this worry, was of course completely unnecessary. I HAD THE BEST TIME. Although I struggled with jet lag horrendously for the first week, which meant I was running off about 2/3 hours of sleep every day on the shoot, I had a blast. The crew were so lovely and everything went really well – this week the videos were pretty much signed off. No mean feat considering I was editing in a foreign language. My lovely client took us out for some great evenings in Tokyo – we had traditional sushi, dined with our shoes off and with the locals at an Izakaya (a Japanese pub), and wiled away the time looking at some crazy goods in Don Quijote.

We were staying near Akasaka/ Roppongi and on the only evening that week I was left to fend for myself, I nervously set off to try and find myself some dinner. As 1) a vegan in Tokyo and 2) a tourist, finding dinner was harder than I thought. I was at first too intimidated to go into what I thought of as the ‘proper local places’ – the hidden doorways which seat about 5 people, and no english menu or photos of the dishes – that was something I had to build up to. However, I ended up having a great night in Akasaka at the ‘Champagne and Gyoza Bar‘. It does what it said on the tin.. I had some yummy mimosas whilst eating the best veggie gyozas I’ve ever had! One thing I actually regret for my trip, was not taking many photos of food while there…. it was all so good!!

Before Tokyo, I wasn’t used to eating out by myself, but now I am a huge fan. Especially being abroad, being out to eat alone is an amazing opportunity to just watch the world go by, or read – I got through A LOT of books! Now my opinion of eating out alone has completely changed and I would do it happily for some time out.

On the first day after the shoot wrapped, 1) I woke up feeling a bit fragile after having too many celebratory cocktails at the top of the Intercontinental 2) Excited/nervous that I was now all on my todd! This was also the first day where I got over my jetlag.. it only took 5 days.. :/

I had a vague list of the various areas in Tokyo that I wanted to see, and the first on my list was around the Imperial Palace, as it was walking distance from the hotel. I set off and had the best day! It was about an hour walk to the Imperial Palace and I loved seeing the locals out about in the Palace Gardens on their Saturday morning – joggers, tourists, painters. The Imperial Palace Gardens themselves were beautiful and I really enjoyed the museum there which showed some of the Palace artefacts/art. The whole time I was thinking how lucky I was to be able to spend my Saturday here. After the gardens, I walked back to the hotel via Hibiya Park where I sat and watched hoards of people playing Pokemon, and several locals painting.

For my big Saturday night out in Tokyo, I headed to Akihabara, the famous ‘electronics’ sector of Tokyo, known for its video gaming. I always think the best way to see a place is to walk, so I got my trainers back on and took on the hour walk from my hotel, seeing the North of the Palace Gardens and a new neighbourhood. I knew when I had hit Akihabara  – it is exactly what you imagine Tokyo to be. An onslaught to the senses – bright lights, tall buildings and people everywhere! The rest of my day had been very sedate and quiet so this was a colourful welcome into the Tokyo most people think of. I went straight into one of the Sega buildings which is basically 5 floors of arcade and video games. You could so easily spend all day here. I spent the evening playing Mario Cart, Super Mario Bros, Tetris and generally watching everyone else go about their Saturday night. It was so fun – I could have stayed on Super Mario Bros forever for the nostalgia but sadly I ran out of coins.

After working up an appetite I set off to find a vegan restaurant I had noted down in the area. After looking for around 30 minutes and not finding it, I decided I would have to face the unknown! I ended up finding what looked like a tourist-free place, but they had an english menu. A lot of the restaurants in Tokyo are tiny affairs – you sit around a small bar with around 10 seats and the food is served from there. It was one of those places that had originally looked a bit too intimidating, but I went for it! The lovely chef gave me the english menu, but little did I know you have to order from a vending machine – common practice over there. Gracefully he showed me what to do, speaking no english, then left me to it. After about 5 minutes of figuring out how to put the money in, I had successfully ordered something (I wasn’t quite sure if I had ordered what I wanted or if some sort of meat heavy dish was coming my way!). The evening before I had to navigate my first vending machine without any help, and had unwittingly managed to order a chicken dish and two large dishes of rice :/ Luckily, I had been successful this time and had the best aubergine tempura, cucumber and rice dish and sake I had ever tasted. The chef was super lovely and even tried to talk to me using Google Translate. I walked the hour back, hitting over 30k steps. I went to bed feeling super accomplished and grateful for my first day in Tokyo.

More to come! xx

London Life: Exploring the Harry Potter Warner Bros Studios

As part of my extended birthday celebrations, my other half got tickets for us to explore the Harry Potter Studios. I’d never been and I’ve personally always loved the books more than the films. I guess it’s because I grew up reading them – pretty much every birthday from around aged 8 to my teenage years, I got the newest book as it came out, and devoured it.

Monster Books at the Warner Bros Studios

For this reason I had never seen the films, but my other half got me the box set for Christmas (definitely a theme running through my gifts and I guess it was because of my moaning that I wanted to go to to the studios).

I crammed in the last 4 films of the series last week so I was all set before we went to the studios. I loved these later ones, way more dramatic and the acting was improved! They also made me pretty sad that Alan Rickman has left us – his portrayal of Snape was one of the best parts of the series.

We arrived at the studios a little early so excitedly went to check out the gift store, both saying that we wouldn’t spend much money (more on that later!). After gazing lovingly at all the memorabilia we headed into the tour. I won’t give much away about the entrance, but walking into the Great Hall was pretty exciting! It was a shame we got rushed through a bit quickly, I guess because of the next tour coming in, but it was great to see a set that has become so iconic in film.

After the Great Hall you can walk around the various other internal sets and props from the films. My favourites were the Gryffindor common room and Dumbledore’s office. They really made me feel like I was actually in one of the films.

You wouldn’t believe the amount of detail that had gone into creating this magical world. I was amazed at the sheer amount of props – a lot of them even designed to move in a magical way.

We got to explore the Forbidden Forest, Privet Drive, Diagon Alley and try Butterbeer (which actually is not that nice, but it had to be tried). The studios even had a full size fake Kings’ Cross, complete with a Hogwarts Express train!

Of course, the crowning glory was the model of Hogwarts itself, which took up a huge room all to itself!

We ended up coming home with a few goodies from the gift shops – notepads for both of us (sucker for good stationery), and Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit. We played as soon as we got home and I can confirm its a worthy buy for any HP fan!

On a side, I took my Fuji XT2 with me for this day trip and was a bit disappointed by the low light performance. Most of the photos you’ll see here were actually taken on my phone! However, I did love it on my day trip to Whitstable – check out the blog here.

In other news, I have one more wedding to shoot and then my 2018 season is over! The summer has flown. If you’re getting married in 2019, drop me a message before your date gets booked up! x

 

 

 

London Life: Exploring Notting Hill & Kensington

Firstly, I must apologise for my very sparse blogging! This wedding season has been so full on, and trying to juggle it with a day job means blogging/social media uptake took a real hit! I can’t believe it took me so long to write this.. but here you go!

One of my new years resolutions was to explore London more, as its so easy to be lazy at the weekend, or just hang out around my local area. Back in May, on my last free weekend before wedding season madness started, I spent a beautiful sunny Sunday exploring Notting Hill & Kensington.

A purple house covered in ivy and greenery

I followed A Lady in London’s walking guide to Notting Hill which I can definitely recommend doing. It took around an hour and a half (with plenty of stops to take photos), and took me through Portabello Market, around pretty hidden Mews, and up into the residential streets of Ladbroke Grove.

As I did it on a Sunday, Portabello Market was lovely and quiet – for once I wasn’t desperate to leave the crowds behind. Blossom was still out and the colours of the buildings were so vibrant. I also came across so many gorgeous classic cars.. which seemed like they had been parked to co-ordinate with their surrounding buildings!

After finishing the tour, I decided I would continue on to Holland Park, some where I have never been in my 10+ years of living in London! Around 15 minutes walk away, when I arrived I was surprised at how rural it felt, despite being right in the middle of time. I loved the Kyoto Garden, and can imagine on a week day it is lovely and peaceful (it was full of tourists so I didn’t stay long). Walking down through the Orangery, the flowers were in full bloom, with wisteria still hanging over the walkway.

From here, you can continue directly south to Kensington High Street, where I picked up a quick lunch and took it to Hyde Park to sunbathe. Wanting to enjoy the sun as much as possible, I walked through Kensington Gardens and up towards the Lido/Serpentine. One of these days I am going to have to try the lido – it looked like the perfect day for it as there was a pretty hefty queue! I eventually reached the other side of the park and made my way through Mayfair to get the tube home from Bond Street. I had walked for around 4 hours, covering 10km, and it was an absolutely gorgeous way to spend a Sunday. You get to see so much of London by walking, and I discovered parts of west London I have never seen before 🙂 This was also another outing for my new Fuji XT2 – its growing on me every time I take it out 🙂 The very shallow images were taken on my Canon 50mm and an adaptor.

What neighbourhoods should I explore next? Follow my board on Pinterest for ways to spend your weekend in London.

Travel: Day Trip to Whitstable & First Outing for Fuji X-T2

Colourful row of houses and white picket fences on Whitstable seafront

A few weeks ago, I went to Whitstable for a day trip out of London with one of my best friends. We discussed doing some weekends away to get out the city this summer and see new places, but with busy schedules we ended up making our first attempt a day trip. For me, nothing beats a road trip, even if its a short one! I love the feeling of freedom – being able to jump in a car and go anywhere you want, at any time. 

We chose Whitstable because I know a lot of people living on the Kent coast who love it, and it was within easy driving distance (about an hour and fifteen from Wanstead in East London). Having just bought tickets to the ‘Silent Alarm’ anniversary tour that week, we pretty much listened/sang along to Bloc Party the whole way there.

Old architectural details on red brick building in Whitstable

Arriving at lunch time, we parked up in the centre of town and walked down the high street, towards the coast. The high street was just as you would want – beautifully quaint and with a true sense of being by the seaside, but not in a cheesy way. There were so many trendy boutiques and vintage stores – honestly, without restraint I could have spent a fortune.

We came out by the Harbour and wandered round the market – there were some really beautiful pieces of art, including some incredible landscape photography. We carried on down the seafront towards West Beach, stopping at the Old Neptune pub on the beach. Down this way, there were endless brightly coloured beach huts along the pebble shores.

After walking all the way down the beach, we backed up on ourselves down Island Wall. I loved walking past all the white washed buildings and choosing which home we would like to live in. They were all lovely and there was the real feeling of history. Whitstable is also home to a number of tiny alleyways leading off to who knows where!

We stopped for a very traditional seaside lunch at Elliot’s, No 1 Harbour Street. Can definitely recommend it – we got chatting to our waitress, who also suggested we stop in at the New Inn pub, which we did after another coastal walk. We had headed towards the castle, which has really lovely gardens, and would be a gorgeous wedding venue! If you carry on up the seafront towards Tankerton, you pass loads more coloured beach huts, and can see for miles, out towards Clacton-On-Sea. Once we got back to the harbour, we came across the Oyster Shack. As we had already eaten, we didn’t stop in, but it would make an amazing date location or place for a beachside beer.

Over all, we had a great day on the Kent seaside, and I came home feeling like we’d had a proper break, despite only being there for the afternoon! This was also the first time I took out my new Fuji X-T2. I’ve bought it as a travel camera – it’s around half the size and weight of my Canon 5D, so definitely something more appropriate for just sticking in your handbag and carrying around all day. I can’t tell you how different I found it though – the EVF (electronic view finder) really threw me for the whole day! It’s a bizarre thing to get used to. Also just buttons being in different places, and actual dials for settings meant it took me forever to set up a photo (I always shoot in manual). It’s going to take some used to, and I can’t wait to properly test it out more after wedding season. Any images you see in this blog were taken on it, with a Fujinon XF 18-55mm. I want to gradually invest in some other lenses, but figured this was a good starting point. I’ve also bought an adaptor which means I can use my Canon lenses on it for now (only in manual focus). Photographers amongst you, keep an eye out as I will probably do a more lengthy review of the XT2 once I’ve had a good chance to play with it.

What I loved this month: April 2018

Speeding through 2018 aren’t we? I’m happily sat writing this at my new desk, absorbing these moments of peace – from now, my diary is completely full booked until August. What madness, but excited for plenty of weddings and fun times.

One-Friendly-Place

This month I’ve been really focusing on trying to balance a crazy work life, with finding time to destress and relax. This has been something I’ve been increasingly working on for the past year – possibly through me getting older(!) and generally getting more mindful about how I spend my time and what makes me happy.

So in line with that, you may see some certain themes popping up in this month’s post of what I’ve been loving:

Happy Place podcast - Fearne Cotton

  1. Happy Place Podcast by Fearne Cotton

I’ve really gotten into my podcasts this year and tried out Fearne Cotton’s ‘Happy Place’ this month. They’re a joyful listen and she has some great speakers on, talking about how they find happiness and peace in their busy schedules. Dawn French was one of my favourites!

2. Exploring Scotland – The North Coast 500

So this technically was only this month, and it already feels forever a go, but our trip to Scotland at the start of April was so needed! We drove the North Coast 500, billed as the UK’s version of Highway 1.. and boy, I can see why. Driving through, there were several bits which reminded of Big Sur. It was so scenic, with ever changing landscapes – lochs, snow covered mountains, plains, the seaside.. everything you could want. I’ll write a separate blog on this as there was just so much to talk about, but I can definitely recommend this as a trip.

3. Engagement season kicking off

Well, wedding season has well and truly started, with pre-wedding shoots galore this month. My first was Hollie & Jon’s Brick Lane shoot. I’ve never done a proper urban shoot like this before, so really enjoyed doing something a bit different, and these two were super lovely. Check out my blog post to see the shoot in full.

4. Throwing myself into plenty of books

I’ve read so much this month! It’s been completely blissful 🙂 This month I made it through:

  1.  The Mountain Shadow –  Gregory David Roberts. The sequel to Shantaram, I bought this immediately after I finished the first book. I have to say, I was so disappointed! The plot was just terrible, and it had all the feeling of ‘I have to write this as a follow up, but I’m not really sure where I’m going’. It had lost all the magic of the first book. Sorry, Shantaram.  2/5
  2. The Handmaid’s Tale – Margaret Atwood. Set in a dystopian future, I’m sure loads of people have heard about this book through the TV series. For something written in 1985, it was so ahead of it’s time in picking up on challenges the future may hold if we don’t change our way. Obviously, it took it to an extreme, but the concept was fascinating. I ploughed through this in just a week! 3.5/5
  3. Bossypants – Tina Fey. I figured I would go for something a bit lighter after the last two books, so went for Tina Fey’s autobiography. A short read, it had me laughing out loud on the tube and is worth reading if only for her responses to internet trolls. 3.5/5 

I’ve now gone old school and am reading ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ – my first ever Agatha Christie novel!

5.  Whitstable

A few weeks ago, I took a random road trip with my bestie to Whitstable. It was the perfect distance away for a day trip from London, and we had a blast driving down there singing loudly to Bloc Party the whole way. Whitstable itself was gorgeous – so quaint and  relaxed, it was exactly what I wanted from a British seaside town! We walked along West Beach and stopped at the Neptune Pub, saw a ridiculous amount of coloured huts, roamed the back streets of white washed buildings, and had a traditional seaside lunch before heading home. I came back feeling like the weekend had been really well spent, even if we had only been there a few hours! We definitely want to do more day trips, so if anyone has suggestions of places within easy reach of London, comment below 🙂

Travel: 5 days in Malta

Last month, I travelled to Malta for a short holiday. I went mainly to support my sister who was playing in the Women’s World Snooker Championships, but I’m also not one to pass up the opportunity to see somewhere new.

29425835_10156273645683588_9101871947536400384_o

As part of my ‘wedding bucket list’, I’ve always wanted to shoot a beach wedding so I decided I would also plan a styled shoot while there. I’ll writing a seperate blog on that, so keep your eyes peeled. Amongst all of that snooker watching and having wedding cakes/flowers etc arrive at my hotel, I’m glad to say we did manage to explore Malta 🙂

Loving a good road trip, we hired a car – always my favourite way to explore somewhere!

29472411_10156273643258588_5994463005801185280_o

On our first day, we headed to the north of the island and found a gorgeous secret bay, off a back road somewhere. This was probably my highlight of the holiday – the place was so secluded and peaceful. While there, we drove round another back road and came out in Imgiebah Bay, where we met a retired man walking. He was telling us he spent every winter in Malta, walking most days around the coast of the island. Sounds like my retirement dream! This coast line was so incredible, I can definitely recommend making time to walk there.

The west of the Island

Another day, we headed more to the West of the island. On our way to Dingly Cliffs, we stopped at Mdina, the ‘silent city’. We had a quick walk around the fortified town, exploring the narrow lanes within the city wall. It was seriously beautiful – very quaint, with gorgeous architecture and plenty of interesting nooks and crannies to find.

29366056_10156273643818588_5585845443666903040_o

Carrying on past Mdina, our sat nav sent us on what seemed the most random route – the track took us between farm fields, and then into narrow lanes which we barely fitted through (despite only being in a small car). Great fun though, and we eventually reached Dingly Cliffs. This side of the island is stunning – very dramatic coastline, and you can see for miles out to sea!

29365607_10156273644228588_4086770796435865600_o

We took the coast road further south and found the Blue Grotto, a natural cave formation in the cliffs. We stopped off at the small seaside resort next to it, Il-Qrendi, and had a stunning outdoor lunch by the sea. It couldn’t have been more perfect, as it was also the hottest day on the island since we’d been there.

Valletta

One evening, we drove into Valletta, the culture capital of Europe for 2018. We needed to cheer up my sister who had been knocked out the snooker, so stopped for cocktails at the Hard Rock Cafe in the harbour, before wandering up to the old town for sunset. And what a sunset we had! The skyline was absolutely stunning and I really enjoyed walking through the old streets as it got dark. We dined al fresco in a lovely square covered in fairylights, before heading back to the hotel. It’s a truly stunning city.

29472817_10156273642613588_8210513835291836416_o

Gozo

On our final day in Malta, we decided to catch the ferry to Gozo, having had recommendations we should see The Azure Window, a natural door formation which recently collapsed into the sea. It was such a windy day we thought we were going to get blown over the edge when looking into the Blue Hole, a natural swimming pool in the rocks next to the collapsed window. I can imagine what a gorgeous spot it must be for a swim in the summer.

As it was the final of the snooker that day, we decided we would squeeze in one more bit of sightseeing before rushing back to the hotel to watch it. We drove north to the Wied Il-Mielah, another natural door forming in the cliffs of Gozo. It was a lovely spot to see, although I stumbled up the steps and dented my wide lens… massive fail.

Before heading back to the airport for our flight home, we were meant to visit the small fishing town of Marsaxlokk, but thanks to it being the closing ceremony of the snooker, and St Patrick’s Day the evening before, our heads were a bit sore! Cue napping before a slow journey to the airport. However, there is always next time! Would love to go back to Malta in the summer and make the most of the coast and secluded bays 🙂
