Well that was the year that was 2013 and today I have great pleasure in sharing Plans and Presents Blog 2013 best features.
Over the last few days and in bringing together this post I have though “Wowsers” I have been blessed to have shared the wealth of incredible talent in our industry and so much beautiful which makes me a very lucky girl.
The year has whizzed by and can’t believe we are about to march right into a brand New Year.
It has been a year of dramatic highs and lows in my life but as anyone that knows me there is life in the old girl yet and you can’t keep me down for long so I aim to make 2014 epic in all senses of the word.
So I want to share a month by month visual journey of wedding amazingness to wet your appetite for a fantastic year to come on the Plans and Presents Blog.
A step back in time to share an incredible Regency Wedding captured beautifully and in period style.
When you work in Weddings for a living, there is lots of pressure to pull off something special for your own Event but the beautiful Autumnal Scottish Wedding of
Heather and Andrew of Make Believe Events is nothing short of spectacular.
The imagery for the couples urban engagement shoot was shot on the Newcastle/Gateshead Quayside.
They used the graffiti wall around the Sage for something a bit different and colourful which captured the artistic nature of the Bride who is a graphic designer.
The wedding was a beautiful small scale wedding.
The Bride and Groom are both artists, and handmade most of the decorations themselves in the lead up to their Big Day.
On a freezing cold January day Katie Byram met the girls for a Couples Shoot at Jesmond Dene House which is situated within the lovely grounds of Jesmond Dene, Newcastle.
The 2 part extravanganza was firmly family centric and fun, and brings to fruition a Love story that was meant to be.
We take a walk a little on the wild side as I shared an amazing Zoo Wedding captured beautifully.
The Groom proposed to the Bride on a beach at the Firth of Forth, and they both really loved Edinburgh so with Julie Anne the couple ended up mooching around the capital for a lovely few hours and doing the dry-run of taking some couple pictures.
There is something beautiful about the soft golden tones of a Sunset, and this Sunset Windmill Engagement Shoot is just stunning.
Add into the mix the gentle turning of a Windmill and a couple incredibly in love and you have images that are really special.
A gorgeous Wedding at one of Scotlands most beautiful and historic Castles.
In the spirit of being a wee bit different this Bride and Groom chose to involve their love of our feathered night time friends by having an Owl Engagement Shoot.
A stunning Kent Wedding at Rowhill Grange, in Kent which was originally built as a grand Victorian Summerhouse in 1870.
The Couple are both serving Army Officers and their wedding was planned whilst they both served overseas in Afghanistan.
The tropical hues that flow through this gorgeous Big Day just scream summer of love.
We all love Movie Love, so for these sweethearts and movie buffs the romance and glamour was incorporated into their own Big day big screen epic “Tie the Knot”.
A celebration that takes you to another Era with so much detail to inspire.
After speaking to lovely Bride Georgia for most of this year after being introduced through her mum, the talented Triflerabbit on Twitter it gave me great pleasure to share her Wedding Day.
When this Bride and Groom told their Photographer their wedding theme was Alice in Wonderlandinspired (and were thinking something a little unconventional for their engagement shoot) it immediately got her grinning like a cheshire cat.
A Vintage Inspired, Handmade Wedding of Jennifer and Ross at Cottiers, Glasgow and portraits at Glasgow University Cloisters.
A stunning Vintage wedding with heaps of personality and homemade style.
A colourful, Scottish coastal Wedding with a 50′s Vivien Of Holloway Dress, Westwood shoes, paper bouquets and a humanist service.
Community spirit beams from this wedding, what an incredible act of love from their church congregation to bring such vision and meaning to the couples special day by making those 1000 paper cranes.
Feel the festive with this relaxed and beautiful Christmas Wedding at South Farm, in Shingay-Cum-Wendy.
So thats 2013 tied up with a bright colourful shiny bow.
There was lots more gorgeous, far too much to share.
