I was delighted to be asked to come along and photograph little Zac – I knew the family well as I had taken a some family photos before of their daughter Zara and the last time I had seen them all Ayah was 5 months pregnant. I headed up to Maida Vale in London and couldnt wait to finally meet baby Zac who was now 4 months old. On arrival I could see he had definitely inherited the gorgeous looks of his parents – he was beautiful and very alert – he was interested in everything going on until right at the end of the shoot when I think all the excitement became too much and he nodded off in his Daddy’s arms. It was such a lovely afternoon and I really enjoyed seeing the whole family again.

It is very off the beaten track and set in beautiful countryside.After the “secret wedding” at Islington Town Hall the week before they were now going to cement their vows with an outdoor blessing with all their very close friends and family in a very intimate ceremony conducted by Pauline’s father who is a Minister.
I met Gary and Pauline in a cafe near Notting Hill one beautiful spring Sunday morning. I love London in the Spring when all the blossom trees are in full bloom and the mist is gently rising. Gary and Pauline were absolutely lovely and told me all about how their wedding plans have changed a few times over the months and now they had come to a final decision to have their actual wedding at Islington Town Hall with four close friends as witnesses a week before their planned wedding blessing which was to be held at Herons Farm in September. Pauline’s father is a Minister and would be conducting the blessing at Herons Farm in Pangbourne, Hampshire. It all sounded so exciting – I loved the idea of a secret wedding too – so romantic…..
