An industrial city river walk...

Hi everyone! As you have probably seen, my puppy Star is a 'Jug'; a Jack Russell/Pug X and so she needs walking literally everyday where possible. Her favourite walk is along the river where I live, probably one of the more industrial views available! As I'm going back to university later on this month and I'm struggling a little inspiration wise, my grandmother had the brainwave of telling me to take my camera out when I took Star out for a walk with my mum.

I have to say, if there is one thing I do love about living in a city is the lights and shapes that that reflect everywhere, as seen in the water/ripples in many of these photographs. Sometimes its good to just take photographs for no real reason, just relax and capture whats in front of you, especially when the sky/sunset is as lovely as this one was. I do love autumn, I love it when it starts to get dark and the lights seem to get brighter and it gets to that stage when a coat is completely necessary. Ahhh, autumn!

Wish I'd remembered to use a tripod though, as my hands are terrible for being incredibly shaky and quite a few times I had to use gates or walls for support and to minimise shakiness in the images. I do live near a variety of London's most famous landmarks, and a few of them are featured in these photographs, I must have looked like a tourist, haha. I think that you can sometimes ignore what is right in front of you if you're not careful, so maybe I need to learn to be more grateful about what where I live has to offer me, inspiration wise.

I'm aware this is a bit of a random post, but I feel like I need to be more proactive when it comes to blogging, so here we are :) a post is a post, and I'm trying my best to post more frequently and not post the same old things. Let me know what you think, I'd love to know and it'll be really helpful to find out the kind of thing I should post in future! Until next time, Rach x x x

Jo and Liam get hitched! ● Part Two

Hiya everyone, and welcome to Part Two of the Jo and Liam get Hitched! Realistically, these posts are more like one BIG post, but in all honesty I don't think all of the photographs could have made it into one post without being too much. This wedding had so many little cute details, like the rainbow tissue paper in string covered baked bean cans, rainbow bunting and balloons, coke and lemonade bottles… The bride had rainbow themed nails too!

My present to the bride was a Pandora bracelet with a variety of charms including a cute bride&groom charm which is shown in one of the photographs. Each of the bridesmaids got an unexpected present, a little necklace in the shade of their rainbow colour; was a lovely touch and not something I even thought of as it was an honour to chosen at all! Most of the photographs on this second post are from the reception, of the bride&grooms family and friends, and many group photographs of the bridesmaids… I have to say I wasn't impressed at the thought of rainbow bridesmaids but actually in reality it didn't look bad at all, plus the dresses were a really flattering shape.

Overall it was an amazing day and a pleasure to have been a bridesmaid and witness their love. It was definitely a day to remember and one that I will hold dear to me for a long time - even if the bride did brake one of my decorations by mistake! [don't worry, I forgave her and fixed it] haha, but at least it makes for a good story. So yes, if someone would like to get married soon that'd be great, as I now am obsessed with literally everything about weddings and I loved being a bridesmaid. Plus, there aren't many colours worse than orange I guess? :p

Until next time, Rach x x x
