Then comes marriage: Lauren & Glenn

Happy anniversary Lauren and Glenn. A year ago, this tremendous two pledged their lives to one another in partnership. And talk about a partnership! They live together AND work together – as wedding photographers Still Love. We adore their non-traditional creativity and their heartfelt honesty, both on show in spades on their wedding day. They chose Samm Blake of Yeah! Weddings to snap the happy and we’re chuffed to be able to share it with you. Now, how can we bottle this goodness?

All kinds of wonderful

If you came to visit us all on Saturday, you might have spied a giant pink sign declaring it so (thanks to the marvellous Miss Bonnie of Machéll). And who are we to disagree?!

First Comes Love 2013, the first held in the stunningly beautiful grounds and grand rooms of St George’s College in Crawley, was without a doubt wonderful. Each and every exhibitor went above and beyond, displaying works of wonder to show off services to swoon over and goods to gush about. Not only that, they were all so darn friendly and nice. Didn’t you think so?

Two of the very nicest, Glenn and Lauren of Still Love, bounced about like little Energiser bunnies on the day and we’d love to share with you a wee snippet of their work (plus one or two images snuck in by Ilkka K, Natasja Kremers and Angela Higgins). We can’t thank them enough.

If something tickled your fancy and you’re not sure who the responsible party is, do please leave a comment and we’ll be sure to let you know tout de suite who to get in touch with.

Hair & makeup trials

One of the loveliest things about First Comes Love is when our exhibiting hair and makeup artists offer way-reduced hair and makeup trials – treating us to a little luxury and pampering on the day. There are just a handful available (seriously! just over a dozen!), so you’d best book yourself in quick sticks.

You can book online now with Kathryn Colgan Makeup Artist, Stephanie DeVaney Makeup Artistry and The Eloquential Bride. Just choose who tickles your fancy and follow the prompts. Prices differ depending upon what is on offer and payment is through PayPal. Easy peasy.

Here’s the link. Off you pop now.

Speaking of clever hair and makeup artists, we also wish to acknowledge the awesomeness of Grace Buckley (her work below), who will be working her magic with makeup brushes on the lovely First Comes Love real-life models, along with the terribly talented hair-styling team from Identified Hair.
