Emily and Stewart - Merchant Adventurers Hall, York, The York Photographer,

From the premeet, it was clear that to get through Emily and Stewart's day unscathed, Id have to hit all of their markers for the photography etc, make sure everything ran smoothly behind the scenes and make sure that Emily's mum got all the credit as she was the one with The Clipboard!

Luckily Emily's mum was bloody lovely and got swiftly to grip with the champagne and the catering staff / drivers / vicar so all I had to do was keep up with the whirlwind that was Emily and her entourage. Emily's fantastic smile was matched by her groom Stewart and the pair of them swept through the day under blazing sun from the ceremony at Newton on Ouse to the reception at The Merchant Adventurers Hall, York.

After speeches and one hell of a spread of food, guests were welcomed downstairs to the undercroft, which in over 350 weddings, many at The Merchant (including mine), I have never seen look so stunning. Thousands of pounds of props were installed by the bride's brother as a gift and the ultimate party band HUGE blew the lid off it.

A fantastic day and I was delighted to be the last man out (Emily's mum told me I had to carry flower arrangements to the car!).

Emily and Andrew at Settrington

Lushness abounded from the word go on the hottest day of the year for these two lovlies. The boys, mostly in military woolens were quietly but stoically boiling and the bridesmaids swanned around looking angelic in the breeze. Everyone else got hammered. Bloody brilliant.
Settrington Orangery is just wonderful for weddings with a church on the doorstep and wild flower gardens and beck below the manicured lawn. Just don't trust your satnav too much as I parked in a small river on my first visit.
I loved every bit of this wedding, the guests were just bloody charming and very much enjoyed the lovely couple's hospitality and backstage, in the small hours, the house manager told me the combination of farming families and military folk had literally emptied the bar - now that's a party :o)

Launch of joint AA2A show at Teesside Uni

So, after 6 months of being selected for the AA2A scheme at Teeside Uni and picked to work with mima (Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art) to develop a piece of work that challenged their collection or organisation, myself and the other artists involved launched our work at the Constantine Gallery last night.

AA2A is a scheme that links artists with arts college facilities, so in return for lecturing and giving tutorials, we get free reign of the craft, design and making facilities, along with access to the guest lecture programme and advice for ourselves from the lovely lecturers. The whole process was very interesting indeed, especially so as I was one of 2 artists chosen to work with mima, so had access to their curators, director and the Art Util archive.
My piece was a research period of street photography and interviews asking the locals of Middlesbrough their thoughts on modern art, the usefulness of art and the usefulness of their local modern art gallery. As you would expect the replies were wide ranging. The final work is an artists book to be held in the collection at mima, and in the University library. At the show opening, I ran it as a video as we haven't gone to print with the book yet.
It was ace working with the other artists there: Alan Hathaway, Lucy Carolan and Sue Gough and I very much look forward to seeing them all again at the Uni as we carry on tinkering in the workshops until I.T turn our pass cards off :o)

The Pitmans at Utopia, Broughton Hall

Sometimes you just know in your bones that no matter what the weather holds, the wedding is going to go off like a party bomb filled with canapes and fizz. This was such a wedding. From the moment Matt and Loraine started talking about their plans I knew it would be relaxed, very stylish and all about the guests having a great time. Broughton Hall comes with a mini stately home called Eden where the couple and guests can stay, camp, prep and jacuzzi the weekend away, AND Utopia, a custom built wood and glass venue in a walled garden. Perfect.

I was very well looked after by the happy couple and bloody loved every minute of it so thank you VERY much for having me over :o)
