I like to take photos of things. Mostly peoples. Mostly pretty peoples, if I'm honest. But sometimes toys, or dogs, or maybe a tree. Y'know, interesting stuff.
I shoot a few burlesque shows, but that's just to kill time between photoshoots with models, where I can control the light and the pose and the magic.
My photos will have the tag "my photo". Otherwise, it's stolen from the vast wilderness that is the internet. I usually source pics from Model Mayhem, Flickr or We <3 it.
You wanna look me up elsewhere?
“Oh, it’s your special day, eh? How about wearing this crotchless mesh abomination? Hey, by the time your partner sees it, you’ll already be married and they can’t back out then, ammirite? Oh, and that’ll be £350 for the garter belt alone….”
But I think I might want to have a bash at writing my own wedding vows.
Like, stuff that means stuff to us, our jokes and stories and songs and references that we’ll get, and maybe some of our close friends.
But then I get nervous.
Like, for birthdays and valentines day, I used to give Katie cards with either a postit note inside it, or nothing written at all, because I wasn’t able to put into words what I wanted to say, and was afraid of ruining the card. lol.
And I think vows are a smidge more important to get right than a birthday card greeting!
See, I love vintage and retro look stuff…but it’s very much a pot luck to find something in the right size.
I might go for a modern, tailored ( read: constructed and designed to hide my paunch ) suit.
So far, all I am certain of is that I don’t want a kilt.
I know that being Scottish, I’m “mad for not wanting a kilt” but, it’s just not my thing. I’m at home in a suit. I’m comfortable and happy.
Plus, all kilts look the same to me. There’s no personal choice to it.
I say “decide” as though it’s like I have a shortlist of finalists, but I don’t.
So, to re-phrase it…I’m starting to look at suits for my wedding today.
lol Do any guys suits come with built in Spanx? Because my belly isn’t getting any smaller :(
He has officially penciled in our date in September.
At first when we thought of it, it seemed like an awesome thing…them giving us £12,000 to spunk on a wedding….And I genuinely believe I could pull it off and pull it off well….
But the more we thought about it…..I’d have to be away from Katie and Sophie for 3 weeks. That’s about a 10th of her life so far ( give or take because I’m shit at maths )…. It kills me enough that I have to come to work everyday and miss out on seeing them for 9 hours, I can’t imagine the state I’d be in after 3 weeks!
Then again, it’s not like we’re swimming in spare cash, so…I’ll say to her when I get home tonight.
Came in at around 60 guests ( 52, plus spare allowing for people to have babies or to find themselves a serious partner ).
Some facts about this draft:
That said, it’s just a first draft and much may change. We also went and had a look and a talk with a potential venue tonight….
So, keep your calendars clear for 2014
Today, Katie did the Leap Year thing of proposing to me, by presenting me with this Spaceform ornament.
So, nows as good a time as any for me to pimp my other Tumblr, wherein I have been collecting wedding things:
( p.s. I said yes, of course. In fact, I’d thought we were skipping the whole engagement thing, and just going straight into the wedding when we had the available funds )
Over on Facebook, I tagged the old white haired dude on the left as Harold Shipman.
I await the angry Facebook email from whomsoever’s dad that is that is that I’ve insulted. lol
One of my fave photos of the day.
Broon and Kev posed for a standard buddy pic, when I spotted Rory creeping in the gap. It took me a couple of extra seconds to refocus, and I thought I was gonna get caught, but they just stood there, waiting. lol
Neal and Gael’s wedding
I totally forgot to take a photo of my main course, because of constant free wine.
Neal and Gael’s wedding
Updating my ModelMayhem portfolio, because I haven’t used it in forever, and I came across this photo from Jayne and Ian’s wedding.
I think I prefer it in black and white….
