Fantastic Cheese cakes

A small goat's cheese tops this 'Cake'
Cheese Cakes can be decorated with fruit and flowers to match your wedding theme

Cheese Cakes make a wonderful alternative to traditional wedding cakes, and they are an excellent addition to the menu, particularly if guests get a little peckish later in the evening.

I saw the first one about eight years ago and since then there have been many variations on the theme. Today I met with Emma Dandy of La Cremerie , who specialises in fabulous cheese wedding cakes. She offers over 100 cheeses to choose from for a cake and bases her recommendation on the results of a tasting meeting held with the Bride and Groom. Many of her cheeses are sourced from Neal's Yard Dairy and she guarantees that they will be in perfect eating condition when they arrive with you.

She is based near me in Hertfordshire but supplies cheese all over the UK by courier.

They can be cut like traditional cakes, although you might want to tackle one of the softer cheese tiers!

Another hand-made Queensberry Album finds its home

Just delivered a beautiful hand-made Queensberry to James and Kitty.
The flexibility and bespoke nature of this stunning product means that invitations, orders of service (see left) and menus, can all be incorporated into the design.
The Order of Service sits next to a photo of the church and the menu next to mouthwatering photographs of the food.
The invitation is placed next to a photo of the gorgeous venue which I went to early that morning so I could photograph it in the best light.
The quality of the album is amazing - a real heirloom. The cover is in smooth Burgandy leather with a photo motif.

Art for art's sake

It was cold, yesterday, and overcast with flat light, but Cambridge is still a magical place. Away from the cacophony of bicycles and the throngs of tourists along the main streets and outside the famous colleges, you can still turn a corner and turn back the clock.

Perfect day - perfect memories

"What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined... to strengthen each other... to be one with each other in silent unspeakable memories."

George Eliot
English novelist (1819 - 1880)

Dear Kate,

We both wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for our beautiful wedding album and parent albums. They have definitely been the icing on the cake following our very special and awesome day. I couldn't wipe the smile off my face looking through the album as it brought back so many wonderful and happy memories. We were truly blown away by all the finishing touches...the case for our album, the calendar, the little book from you. Both of us said we were over the moon that we picked you as you really delivered well beyond our expectations. Thank you Kate, for everything!

All the best, Wendy and Wayne

Another beautiful Queensberry album

A small intimate wedding on one of the hottest summer's day imaginable. Rhinefield House in the heart of the New Forest was the spectacular setting for the moving ceremony and the sumptuous wedding breakfast. With a Sage cover, this Queensberry Album will have ivory mats, and the photographs will be mounted on grey pages which will give a soft border to each one.

A walk in the Park

September is a wonderful time for 'environmental portraiture'. Great light and, with all the recent rain we still have saturated colours. Autumn is on its way, but a recent shoot in Richmond Park was very leafy and green on a perfect late summer's day.
