Fiona Kelly Photography Tells your special moments...

This Is Fiona Kelly. She specialises in photographing weddings in a way that tells a little story of that moment in time and something about the people in the photos. Its all about you, your story and those important moments!

This is what fiona says about her career as a photographer.

Being from the Lake District I am a northerner at heart (still have the accent) but one who loves London and, to be honest, prefers the weather in the South East! I love the vibrancy of the city and then completely appreciate the slower pace and beauty of the countryside. Its the best of both worlds.

In 2008 I got married in Las Vegas, amongst a small group of friends and family. It was this amazing day, and our honeymoon road trip round California that really pushed my photography love affair to the next level. I had worked as a photographic art director for many years, being the person behind the photographer putting together the creative vision, but my desire was to do more than just direct.

It wasn't enough any more, I wanted to take the photos.
I have always thought that life is to be experienced fully and every challenge, no matter how scary, to be met with excitement at what might be round that first corner. It was this rather crazy attitude that finally pushed me into making photography a career and I am so glad of it. Theres never a dull day, no work day is the same and I love meeting and getting to know so many wonderful people who welcome me into their lives for their most special day.
So thats a little about me. Im creative, independent, easy going and possibly the most organised person you will ever meet! I love people and would love to hear your story.

Come and have a chat with Fiona on the day of the fair about how she can capture your special moments.

An elegant sip from Katie-Janes 'Winecups' ...

I was intrigued when Katie-Jane of Winecups contacted me about showing at the October Miss Vintage Wedding Affair. I just knew she would fit in perfectly when I saw the pictures of her quirky and fun "Winecups". This is what Katie-Jane says about her fabulous product. 

"I was in search of individual wedding favour ideas for my wedding last year, I love the idea of using vintage crockery but wanted a twist.  So I painstaking and lovingly handmade these Tea cup wine glasses as favours.  They went down a treat and have had so much good press that I decided to make and sell them to other brides to be looking for something unique."

They make great great gifts for the bridal party and favours for the ladies, they also work well as a statement on the top table.  What ever you choose to do with them they cause quite a stir.
Each tea cup wine glass is individual, made from a fine bone china vintage tea cup, and packaged in a elegant protective tube casing.
  Perfect for any vintage themed wedding.

"I stumbled upon my hidden passion for baking in 2007 whilst making my
first ever birthday cake for my now fiancé. Although far from a visual
masterpiece I fell in love with every aspect of baking.  Since that
point I spent 5years perfecting cake recipes and cake decoration
skills having been lucky enough to have been taught by a large number
of the top cake designers in the UK and US.  I finally made my dream a
reality when Barney’s Bakery was born in May 2012.
