To say I was delighted when Jaz Ampaw-Farr announced to me I was one of the lucky ones to attend a day with the lovely Chris Hanley, it’s an understatement!

Having watched Chris and Claire Hanley video on their blog I was really looking forward to meeting them and as soon as I walked into their studio I wasn’t disappointed, I was greeted with very friendly faces and I just knew it was going to be a great day!

In the morning we were showed a slideshow of a selection of great Cherish the Dress images and Chris talked us through some lighting techniques and tips, followed by a talk by Claire Gould from English Wedding blog who kindly gave us useful insights on blogging, thank you!

Lunch time soon arrived and off we went to a fabulous near by pub for the most delicious hand made fish finger roll and some socialising to then get back for the fun part of the day, the shoot!

We had the delight of having a real bride to model for us, Jayne you were just awesome, posing professionally and very patiently for all of us. Jayne wore a beautiful Timeless Bride dress and Hair and make up was executed by Jeni Morris who did a fab job, I have to say Jayne looked fabulous!

Thank you Chris and Claire for your generosity and to all involved to make this fabulous day so enjoyable and especially Jaz for making it all happen in the first place!

Here are a few images from the day 🙂
