The Luckier I Get

A few weeks ago now, I saw this post by photographer Jacki Bruniquel… an amazing South African wedding photographer who’s work, attitude and outlook on life I really admire. She quoted something that literally stopped me in my tracks. It really made me think.

It is so simple and so very true….

How did I not get it before?

the harder you work, the luckier you get

The last few weeks now I have had this buzzing in my head. My focus has changed, early mornings have made me productive, I’ve been plotting and planning and getting busy. Suddenly, not-so-amazingly-now-I-know-the-secret, I have started to feel so much luckier.

Happy weekend all!

A Day off

There is no lovelier Sunday than one spent rambling along the Cornish coast in Heather the VW with my parents and my goofy dog. Coffee and chocolate over cliffs and seals on the rocks. On this little adventure, I even learned about the joys of VW starter motors and how to start one with a screwdriver. Yep. The joys of an old v-dub.

Cornwall Elopement – Nessa and Russ

A few weeks ago,¬†Nessa and Russel jumped in their car and headed to the land of Russ’s childhood memories, Cornwall. Here he introduced his soon-to-be wife to the wonders of this gorgeous county. Cream teas, idylic seaside villages and incredible seafood cuisine. Their road trip came via my home in Newquay where we sat chatting, looking out over the ocean and drinking tea. It then took them on to the magical Boho Cornwall where in front of Russel’s parents, brother, sister in law and nephew, they were married. A small, intimate ceremony that was packed full of love.

Soon I will share more of their perfect elopement but for now, how stunning is beautiful Nessa?
