Bee Smith is now running hat making parties!!!

I have worked with Bee Smith before on the last Miss Vintage Wedding Affair in Surbiton. 
This is her stunning current 2012 collection.

Her hats certainly went down a storm then and now she has added another string to her bow. She is now teaching some really fun hat making classes.

Bee Smith designs and creates hats for every occasion. Bee also designs a full range of bridal accessories, from the wedding veil to the bridegroom's tie. Much of Bee's work has a nostalgic feel, capturing vintage glamour. Whether you are looking for English elegance or eccentricity, Bee Smith's accessories offer a little of both. Bee Smith's hats are all handmade by the designer herself and can be created to suit the individual client. Bee incorporates vintage lace, fabrics and embellishments ensuring that no two pieces are the same. Contact Bee about her hat making hen parties.

Fussy formal wedding shots? ...not with "We Not Me"

As weddings have changed, the way that we document them has too. Capturing your wedding day in the right way for you is so important, and if you are not a fussy formal person then why should your wedding album be?

Meet Anita and Tom at We Not Me... The work is stunning with a relaxed elegance. I knew I would love Tom and Anita's work when they emailed me saying what they loved about photographing weddings...

"... we love Outdoors weddings, simple dresses,
sharp suits, fun people, less formality and more fun...Photographing people is what we enjoy the most - especially when those people say 'i do'. We like to keep things simple, natural and fresh. We let the events of the day unfold and photograph things as they happen. We don't start directing the day, this way weddings flow smoothly and the pictures happen naturally. We live in London, and we will happily travel anywhere in the world"

I thought... "Great, I must work with these people!" and this is why. Just take a look at these images.

They will be hosting a pop-up photo booth at Miss Vintage Wedding Affair on the 21st October at The Bac.Come and have your picture taken.
