A fascinating job last week accompanying members of the International Confucian Ecological Alliance on their visit to London.

The trip was organized by ARC (Alliance of Religions & Conservation) & began with a visit to Buckingham Palace to meet HRH Prince Philip to discuss projects past & future.

Then to St James’s Palace for a meeting with Justin Mundy, Director of The Prince’s Charities’ International Sustainability Unit.

It was a priviledge to witness such an informed, passionate & inspiring debate.photocrati gallery

Just revisited The Deer Park Country Hotel outside Honiton.

So much work has been done to the grounds since last year. With the classic country house feel and excellent service it’s a great venue for a Honiton wedding.

Two great weddings in the Spring there last year, with excellent opportunities for wedding photography in the woods knee deep in daffodils.photocrati gallery

Memories of sunshine & summer fun at The Mount Somerset Hotel in Taunton for Chris & Zoe’s wedding.

Zoe looked stunning & the RAF boys turned out in real style with swords blazing.  Romantic walk around the  grounds with beautiful views over the Somerset countryside.

The group shots were a real laugh as were the speeches & the dancing… a great day!photocrati gallery

photocrati galleryBeautiful Christmas wedding setting at Hotel Endsleigh on Dartmoor for Claire & Gary.

The house & grounds of the hotel are stunning, the staff so charming & the food delicious, I’d recommend  it as a perfect wedding venue to anyone.

Fun preparations with the bridal party all receiving lovely gifts & the boys arriving in a stylish VW camper. Such a happy couple & close family vibe it made for easy photography with open fires, mistletoe & a roaring bonfire in the yard.  The perfect start to the festive season.  I wish Claire & Gary & their lovely families all the best for the New Year.

At The Jam Factory, Lime Kiln Lane, Uplyme Dorset DT7 3XQ  Friday 6th & Saturday 7th December 10 – 5pm, Sunday 8th 11- 2pm

“Entering The Jam Factory I had a sense of excitement reminiscent of one of London’s ‘great’ exhibitions….hungry!”

“…walking around the room, tuning into different sensory elements, I was visually and intellectually captivated, compelled to look, read and listen more”

“It was a true collaboration and public art at its best”

“….Someone better call Tate Modern!!”
