So early in April I got together with a team of fabulous local wedding suppliers for this dreamy styled shoot!

Taking some inspiration from what was my upcoming holiday at the time, I wanted to do something around a Palm Springs-esque colour palette of retro pastel pinks and mint. I also felt inspired from having seen some wonderfully colourful real life brides lately. Ladies no longer feel as obligated to stick to traditional white and ivory if that’s not who they are, and it’s fabulous to see some quirkiness being embraced.

A large part of bringing the vision to a reality was done with the help of Orange Tree Weddings who really brought the retro kitsch to the shoot with their wonderful styling and great array of props.  Our brides quirky and colourful dresses were created from scratch (featuring some sequin applique loveliness) from local dress makers Bella Figura based in Matlock. The whole team were wonderful and really helped everything come together! Do check out everyone’s links at the end of this post for everyone that was involved. All the ladies are real wedding suppliers so if you fancy bringing some quirky retro kitsch to your own wedding day they could certainly help!

So here is the result of our efforts, I hope you’re ready for some colour! Enjoy! 😀

A bit of a mix of personal and work now really, Dimension Jump XIX, the 19th Red Dwarf fan club convention!

I went to the convention back in 2004 as a fan, and it was beyond awesome to return this month, still of course as a fan, but also to help the team with photo coverage, and also, excitedly, get to shoot some portraits of the actors themselves. The only thing that had really changed was the scale, it was a smaller event the year we went, and also the amount of attendees in full costume. It was impressive to see so many cosplayers in their wonderful costumes, and with around 50 entrants into the regular Fancy Dress competition on Saturday night the judges had a tough decision.

Dimension Jump is a weekend event (starting Friday evening running through till early evening Sunday) held at a hotel and hosting hundreds of Red Dwarf fans for cast Q&As, autograph signing sessions, games and more.

It’s a tightly run ship with limited free time for those involved so the portraits had to be taken in just a couple of minutes, but here are the results. My little captures of some of the stars of one of my all time favourite shows, Chris Barrie, Robert Llewellyn, Danny John Jules and Hattie Hayridge. 10 year old Becky never would have dreamt that her work would lead her to working with these people she loved, feeling pretty darn lucky!

So in March the mister and I flew across the pond for the first time for two weeks in America. It was wonderful! I’m not a fan of flying so it took a bit of time to get on board with the idea despite having always wanted to go to America, but it was definitely worth it. I thought I’d share some holiday shots with you guys again as I did with our little Europe roadtrip. The first stop was LA but as we were there for longer than anywhere else I also took way more photos there so I’m gonna split it over two posts. This one will cover Griffith Park, a bit of Hollywood’s Chinese Theatre, Madame Tussaud’s Hollywood, Universal Studios and some random street shots from around Los Angeles.

(Coming up in Los Angeles part II, Disneyland, Warner Bros Studio Tour, The Hollywood Museum and Santa Monica!)
