Just thought I’d share this rather smart looking group of silhouettes I recently cut of some Eton boys from emailed photos. Eton boys

For the very best wedding videographer I highly recommend…Pretty in White!

It was one of those take your breath away venues, Brocket Hall in Hatfield, picturesque views in every direction, beautifully decorated with stunning floristry, the occasion was flawless with a host of top rate services from the caterers to the pianist to the wedding videographers. Here it was that I met Rob Dunlop of Pretty in White wedding videography:¬†www.prettyinwhite.com He was so discreet in his quickness to dot around the room catching every precious moment with his accomplice, between the two of them they didn’t miss a thing including me! Some videographers can be so concentrated on the main wedding couple that the subtle assets of the day get over looked but not Rob, he covered every aspect of the day all timed perfectly to achieve a great combination of shots. The final edits are outstanding. I was amazed to see the results of me in action which you can witness for yourself in the edit below and from which it is plain to see the quality of what he’s capable of. If you are looking for the perfect wedding videographer you’ve found him!

‘F’ is for ‘Fancy dress!’

This quirky selection are some of the highlights from a recent fancy dress party with the theme being things beginning with ‘F’. We had a fish finger, fox hunter, flower, Ferrero Rocher, French man, frog, French fries, Flintstones, Flash (superhero), fallen angel. It was a lot of Fun! My favourite silhouette of the evening has to be the fabulous French man. Also loved the controversial fox hunter outfit and rather elegant, all in black, fallen angel.

Russell Family Tree

I’ve just been waiting for my cousin’s wife to give birth (which happened on the 28th Feb, Congrats!) so I could finally complete our Russell family tree as it currently stands. As you can see it’s been an eventful period as Laura, my four month old, is only the third youngest! This tree depicts four generations of Russells.Print Russell Tree Final Copy-min

Silhouette Nostalgia

How precious is this? Whilst doing a spring clean my parents came across some old photos taken as reference for the silhouettes my grandmother cut of me aged 2 years old. I had always wondered if she’d created them from photos or life sketches. Now I know! I imagine that when my grandma (Mary Lou Russell) did these portraits she’d have had no idea how precious they’d be to me now!

New Years Eve 2016

My last booking of the year and first one after giving birth to my baby girl just eight weeks ago! Couldn’t resist a New Years Eve gig at Hutong restaurant on the 33rd floor of the Shard, London, which is a fairly local location to me compared to some. The diners were on a general NYE high in anticipation of a fantastic view of the fireworks display to be seen across the Thames on the southbank at the stroke of midnight. Plus a surprise showering of gold glitter foil from the Hutong staff added to an exciting climax to the evening leaving me full of NYE cheer! Wishing you all a great start to 2017!
