Weddings and Blessings

 

July 2013

In the romantic location of The Great Hall at Mains, Poulton Le-Fylde, bride Karen and her American groom, Michael joined to have a summer blessing. The couple enjoyed a truly memorable day  celebrating with family and friends in the beautiful rose garden and grounds of the hall.

Lancashire Limousines (www.lancashirelimos.co.uk/weddings.html) provided the stylish 1920’s style Beauford wedding car and the Great British Ice Cream van.

My beautiful teenage daughters Gabrielle and Nicole

 

 

As my girls are growing up fast, I took this opportunity to photograph them before they fly from the nest.

The pictures were taken last Sunday and were taken on location in my garden, next to our treehouse which my husband and Gabrielle have cleverly built together.

Lytham Photography course (week 8) Exhibition

What a lovely time we had!

After 7 weeks our photographers were finally ready to exhibit their works. Attendees started to arrive at 12 noon to set up the exhibition before friends and family visited to view at the Lytham Methodist Church between 12.30 and 2.30 yesterday.

This has been a lovely group of enthusiastic people who have improved their skills, week by week, by taking photographs specifically for this special day.

The works were varied and creative in content, ranging from portraits of people and dogs, still life (trees, flowers) to architectural shots of rooftops, church windows, railings and a ferris wheel, landscapes of countryside, railways, the Lake District and sunsets over the sea. It is obvious that these people have all embraced their love of photography over the last 8 weeks. Well done everyone…..

Here are some of the written comments given about the course:

Loved the course! It was so nice to be inspired by like-minded people in the group. (TG)

 

Very enjoyable, great getting out and about. (anony)

 

Loved the course, only thing wrong is that it has finished today.  When can we start a new class as I will miss this so much. (JP)

 

Enjoyed the course.  Wish it could continue as I want to learn more about photography. (anony)

 

I have loved every minute of this class.  Thankyou for all the creative inspiration.  Most of all the positive impact it has had on my well being.  Will miss this Wednesday session but hopefully will carry on doing photography a college. (S)

 

Very enjoyable, good information and very inspirational- will keep taking photo’s Thankyou Michele! I would love more please! please! please! (anony)

 

Thankyou Jayne, Alyssa and Linda for your support and for the lovely comments and flowers everyone…… I am thinking about more courses for the future as I really enjoyed this one, so please keep watching this space and hopefully, I will see you again soon.

Lytham Photography course (week 5)

I have met some lovely people on this course, who just enjoy taking photographs. A lady who loves colour, and gentleman who loves to photograph his two Spaniel dogs. Others love photographing family, buildings, flowers, sunsets and abstract.

As our little exhibition gets closer and the light nights are finally here (oh and the weather is supposed to be getting a little warmer), I am encouraging the group to go out in the evenings to make use of the beautiful light at dusk to photograph stunning sunsets.  Also, I would like people to try to arrange a fun photo-shoot at the weekend with family and friends in the garden.

Try and take at least 20 photographs this week so that you have a larger choice for the exhibition.

Alyssa will be taking the session next week and will be talking about how to print your digital photographs. She has also agreed to design and print some flyers for the exhibition.

Thankyou Alyssa

 

 


Lytham Photography Course

The course has been running for 2 weeks now and seems to have been well received by the participants. People have brought in and have talked about photographs and their inspirations. Attendance numbers are good for both weeks with great enthusiasm being shown by all.

Being week 3 of the course this Wednesday, I shall be announcing the exhibition categories that we should start shooting for, which by week 8 will result in a creative, and sociable mini exhibition (time & venue yet to be arranged).

This course is being run in connection with Fylde Social Inclusion Services (please contact Jayne Kelly on 07833400494 for details).
