Do you want to take our wedding photos?

Last spring, Will and Alys – who are friends approached me having seen this photo blog and the kind of work I do and asked if I’d be interested in doing the photos for their wedding which took place a few weeks ago. I pointed out that I wasn’t at that point a wedding photographer as such. They already knew. Will has been to plenty of weddings in his time and cannot stand being made to wait while “photographers spend ages taking photos that once seen will never be looked at again”. So I was asked and they hoped I’d bring something of my work experience elsewhere to the table. And some speed. And a spot of irreverence….

Pictures from the amazing Wig Party

Anyone who knows me well will know that I don’t enthuse about something for the sake of it. So when I describe the Wig Party as an amazing event it is a rarity. The Wig Party took place on Saturday and people from all walks of life are invited as long as the dress code is applied. I was working with a few photographers capturing the party. The setting at One Mayfair was absolutely sensational, and the effort the guys behind the event put into it was terrific. To add to the atmosphere the music was brilliant- and well done to everyone who threw themselves into character- this year’s theme was Gods and Monsters. My wig was a cursory purple Edna Everage (so ‘monster’ then!) type affair. Next year who knows…
If you missed it then make sure you’re there next year…

Wig Party preparations step up a gear

Last week the preparations for the Wig Party stepped up a gear with the boys and girls getting into their Gods and Monsters wigs and stepping out on the streets of Soho to let everyone know about it. It is a celebration of individuality, self-expression, tolerance and, not forgetting, really big hair! It is a night where people from all walks of life, from all over the world can enjoy themselves, by being themselves. And for that reason, anyone is welcome at Wig Party
