Berkshire Wedding Photography
 

There are so many good causes out there these days that no matter where you go there is always someone collecting money. Apart from when I was a wee lad I don’t think I’ve ever had the desire to join in raising money for something. Well today that changed, one of my Grooms (Lee) sent me an email about Movember and after much gnashing and wailing (by my lovely wife) I decided to take part.

Reading the blurb in his invitation email spurred me on: Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK, 35,000 men are diagnosed every year, one man dies every hour and scarily 1 in 11 UK men will be diagnosed in their lifetime, you realise that there is a large chance that someone you know could be affected by this cancer and it’s not just up to other people to raise money.

The brief premise behind the event is as follows: I must start the month of November clean shaven, from then on I must grow a moustache, I am not allowed to grow a beard or a goatee, however a small growth under my bottom lip is allowed and this is apparently called a “tickler”

Now being a photographer this also gives me a little project, so every day I will be updating a self portrait slideshow with my progress so that you can all have a good laugh at my expense!

I met up with Emma and Simon on Sunday to get to know them better before I shoot their wedding.
I love doing engagement shoots, it’s a nice way to get to know my couples better and it also works as a great way to relax them on the day as they have an idea of what to expect from me.

We met up just outside of Basingstoke, had a bite to eat and then took a wander along the canal and up to Odiham Castle.

Here are a few of my favourite images from the shoot.
