10th September 2020 Preparation for another wedding tomorrow Day 171 in the UK

POST LOCKDOWN 10th September 2020 Preparation for another wedding tomorrow Day 171 in the UK

I wish everyone would stop using the word ‘safe’ regarding going out to work, school and places like restaurants and pubs. At best we have mitigated and reduced the risk.

Do you recognise this?


Staying at home! – STILL Protecting the NHS – STILL saving lives

I AM STILL Keeping safe

A few hours spent today making sure I am ready for tomorrow’s wedding at The Grosvenor Pulford. Equipment cleaned, memory cards clearing, batteries charged and of course mask, hand sanitizer and gloves at the covid ready. I have recently sent a camera, lens and flash for repair and it looks like another camera and flash need tome tender loving care. Thye are working machines and get a bit of a thrashing as I rush around looking for that special image for a bride and groom of their special day.

Looking forward to the photography tomorrow, the weather is looking good, sunshine and then clouds in the afternoon. Clouds provide diffuse light, easier on the look of images.

Here are some images from a previous Grosvenor Pulford wedding.

The grosvenor Pulford has a number of ceremony rooms, this was a pre-coronavirus wedding.
We used the reception for a group photograph as the weather was very much against us!
The balcony landing and chandelier made a background for some portraiture.
And the balcony gave me a change of angle for this image.
These kind of bridal pictures make the most of a beautiful bride and her beloved dress.

Stay safe.

Welsh Government’s Guidance on weddings and civil partnerships can be found here, must get around to reviewing it:

https://gov.wales/guidance-marriages-and-civil… and the frequently asked questions at: https://gov.wales/coronavirus-regulations-guidance…

To read the current Government guidance on getting married in England please follow this link: COVID-19: Guidance for small marriages and civil partnerships.

Other matters today:

  1. Lovely walk in the woods this afternoon.
  2. Making scones again this afternoon. I also bought some Double Elmlea Plant, the best vegan alternative to cream I have found. We tried some vegan squirty cream but they add sugar to all those pressurized canned ‘creams’ and they taste sickly sweet and nothing like cream. Squirty cream also has the consistency of shaving foam, very unlike cream. The Elmlea is also whippable, so ideal for scones.
  3. Write this blog.
