Our Engagement Shoot with Tarah Coonan...

When we were down in London, we were very lucky to be able to take a few hours out to attend an engagement shoot with our lovely and talented Wedding photographer, Tarah Coonan. Not knowing London too well, but knowing we wanted some greenery as a backdrop, Tarah took us to Regents Park, and it was just beautiful and a perfect spot for the shoot...

I think fate was on our side, because we got a few rain-free hours, and beautiful light, in what was otherwise a truly horrid week weather-wise!

These are some of our favourite shots, although it was pretty much impossible to chose just a few to share, and we want to say a huge thank you to Tarah for being so amazing to work with - we all had a lot of fun and it just felt like hanging out, we felt very at ease, which is not easy to do as we don't like having our photos taken normally! We can't wait to see her again in September when she will be coming to Belfast to shoot our Wedding. Which, incidentally, just happens to be exactly THREE MONTHS today! 

If you know of anyone who had just gotten engaged, is getting married, or has little ones they would like to capture - give them Tarah's details! She comes highly recommended from us!

We've been on a bit of an Asian food kick. Dim sum, sushi, miso, steamed buns... It's all delicious and so quick and easy to cook at home!

What are you loving lately? :)

Pulse, details...

We are now home from London following another successful year at Pulse, in spite of the hideous rain, which threatened to keep everyone inside ;) Here are a few more peeks from the show...

Thanks to everyone who stopped by our stand and spoke to us this week, it was so great to connect with everyone who we either knew through twitter or by reputation! Always lovely to make new friends at show.

We were also delighted with how our new print, Elderflower & agapanthus, and Heirloom was received! :)

More soon x

Hope you like seeing the sneak peek and more from the show soon...

Rainbow Diamond Jubilee...

Absolutely loving this Rainbow chart from Vogue, showing her Majesty the Queen in all her beautiful colourful outfits over the years... we love how much she embraces colour in her head to toe looks, and want to take this opportunity to wish her our very heartfelt congratulations on her Diamond Jubilee!

It's so wonderful to see everyone celebrating, out on the streets in the UK, having parties, drinking tea & eating buns, making connections (being neighbours!) and looking to all that is good and cheerful in this not especially cheerful economic time, even just the country dressed up in colour is happy-making... makes you proud to be British, and able to embrace the very British 'chin up' spirit!

Looking forward to be in London in a few days time to catch the tail end of the festivities.
