So as a lot of you have already guessed, Saturday's shoot was initially a secret as people dressed as the faces of emoji for a Guinness World Record attempt in celebration of World Emoji Day.

Some 531 people simutaniously dressed as the emoji characters at several major cities around the world, including the winking face, smiling face, pizza and poop emoji.

We gathered with lot's of Emoji fans near Westminster for the London part of the challenge, which came two days ahead of World Emoji Day. The successful attempt also coincided with the upcoming worldwide release of The Emoji Movie and we feel privileged to have been a part of the big event.

Fathers Day Special Photo Shoot

April 2018

*Fathers Day Special*

If you love your father as much as I love mine, then you’ll want to do something special this fathers day. 

Your dad is expecting you to be predictable and go for the same pair of socks or set of slippers that you sent him last year, and probably the year before, so in 2018 surprise him and choose something a little different. Surprise your daddy with a Fathers Day photo shoot and show just him how much you love him.

Every year we leave buying our pa’s present until the last minute and grab something predictable, and every year the socks you bought just get thrown in the draw with all the others and become a day to day item and soon forgotten. 

Surprise your dad this year with a present that will leave him with some great memories and last them a lifetime, choose one of our ‘Fathers Day’ photo shoots.

The photo shoot voucher will come in a beautiful presentation box; along with a few little gifts to show them how much you care. Call or email the studio for more details of this limited number Fathers Day Photo shoot.

Emma & Chris's big day at The Old Hall

March 2018

The big day for Emma & Chris has finally arrived, and even though the weather men are saying it's going to rain all afternoon, we don't believe them and think it's going to be dry and a fab day.

The Old Hall is undergong some changes to the which will give us a fantastic outside ceremony area for the summer, but for tomorrow we'll have to work around these changes and shoot something new and fresh. if we don't get a sunset, or the chance to shoot outside for the evening shot, we have an idea that should look stunning, so watch this space.

Natalie & Dan's big wedding adventure at Swynford Manor

December 2017

Our last wedding adventure of 2017 at the beautiful Swynford Manor, Newmarket with Natalie & Dan. It’s been raining for the last few hours, but is due to brighten up just in time for the ceremony. We do love a winter wedding, and what better time to get married than over Christmas, when a venue is decorated and every one is full of festive spirit. 

Situated within easy reach of the city of Cambridge and the market town of Newmarket, Swynford Manor is a classic country house wedding venue that dates back to the early 18th century. Once the home of Lord Byron’s half-sister, Augusta Leigh, the house has a rich history and a very distinctive style.

It's going to be a great day and a perfect end to a perfect year.
