A New Year – A New Blog Post

Here we are & another year is upon us;  another grand gesture of resolutions made for 2012 – some will be broken before the end of the month I am sure (maybe it will just be too difficult to avoid Rioja & surely life is made sweeter by discount shopping on The Outnet), but there are a couple of Darby & Joan related promises I have made to myself that I am excited about keeping.

One of them is to try & write a blog post every couple of weeks.  This may be too frequent for some of you to bear reading & may click on “hide post” or hit the delete button as soon as you see our name pop up, but others amongst you may have a spare few minutes to catch up with what has been happening with D&J, & for those of you I hope you enjoy looking at images of shoots we have styled & photos of events we have been involved with & maybe getting some ideas & inspiration for your event.  Lastly I will always be name dropping fabulous photographers, stylists, event organisers, cake makers, venues, designers, suppliers & florists that you really can’t live without.

We have been so lucky over the past few months to have worked with such inspiring, helpful, talented & fun people & have been featured in quite a few wedding blogs which is something that we are really proud of for such a young company.

Rather than write a piece for each shoot, here are a few pics from some of them.

Happy New Year everyone.  x

1940’s Inspired Photo Shoot…

Hello there! I had such a fab day yesterday over in Sheffield together with a group of super talented wedding industry people, including  Sweet Words Stationery, Tattered Rose & Chloe Adlington.  What a nice way to spend a Monday, surrounded by gorgeous girls & vintage loveliness. Cannot wait to see the photographs as they promise to be stunning…but here is a sneaky peak.
