THE Derbeian | Winter 2019/20 There’s a saying, “Do what you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life.” I couldn’t agree more, I genuinely love what I do, specializing in wedding and portrait photography across Derbyshire and South Yorkshire, with prices starting at £450. My photography style is photojournalistic, with a traditional base. This means, that as well as the formal shots of the wedding party, I also take natural shots throughout the day which capture the feeling of a moment. On the morning of the wedding I head off to meet the Bride and Bridal party. Here I take candid, documentary style shots of the Bridal preparations, but don’t worry I will fully respect your privacy and I’m good at keeping myself occupied capturing some of the details like the dress and the bouquets. After the ceremony and the more formal group shots, I steal the Bride and Groom away for some portraits, while the guests enjoy a canapé and a glass of fizz or two. I will be there during the speeches and the first dance, to make sure you have a full record of your special day. Once the fairy lights have been taken down and the champagne glasses washed, my work continues. All images are tastefully edited to enhance the mood of the shot. You will have access to an online gallery from which you can order a range of products. I also provide all your images on a souvenir USB in a beautiful presentation box.

Winter 2019/20 | THE Derbeian I’ve never met a dress yet that I can’t alter! When I was 9 years old (much to my mum’s horror) I cut up a woollen sweater because I thought it would look better shorter and with short sleeves. My dad bought me my first sewing machine when I was 12 years old and I’ve never looked back. I have a degree in Art and Sociology and 4 years ago I took my Post Graduate Certificate in Education which focussed on textiles. I totally love my job, it’s never dull and I like to say that: “I’ve never met a dress that I can’t alter”. In 1993 I went to America as a nanny for a year, I stayed for 11 years, as I met my husband there and had our two children. My son is 19 and my daughter is 16. Whilst in the States I worked in Above Fortey’s coffee shop a very large fabric store as a manager of the dress fabric department, I probably spent more than I earnt, and it was there that I honed my skills with lace and expensive fabrics. I specialise in altering bridal, bridesmaids and prom dresses but I also do general alterations on almost any clothing; male, female, children’s or other. I make and alter curtains too.
