Have you always wanted to be a wedding photographer?

I have always enjoyed taking photos and had an interest in photography. My dad was an amateur photographer in his youth so I was always around someone with an SLR camera. I studied photography with my A-Level art course and did an evening course at the same time to learn more.

Can you remember the first picture you took?

The first photo I remember taking was of the Diplodocus skeleton at the Natural History museum whilst on a school trip to London.

How did Fiona Kelly Wedding Photography get started and how long has the business been going?

It all started about 3-4 years ago with taking photos at friends’ weddings and I slowly realised that not only did I really enjoyed doing it but I was getting some good feedback! It seemed the logical step to take it to the next level. I was amazed at the time that a lot of the wedding photographers I saw seemed really stuck in their old ways. I have always loved candid photography and having worked as a fashion art director for many years had a real eye for more contemporary and interesting images. I really wanted to go down the route of doing something fresh and modern and my natural style has taken that on.

Rustic Christmas Weddings

Getting married around Christmas time does not have to be all about red, greens, silvers and gold. How about a rustic Christmas wedding? There are so many beautiful natural elements around in December that you can really make the most of for your winter wedding. How about using pine cones as name place cards, wreaths as decorations and beautiful winter roses with herbs. A rustic Christmas wedding can be even more beautiful than using traditional festive colours.

Love Heart Handbag Hooks

So-Hooked Handbag Hook Box

This one is for the ladies! When you go out all dressed up and you have your shiny new handbag (or even a lovely old one), isn’t it such a nuisance to have to find somewhere safe to put your handbag – on the floor next to your chair, hung on the side of a chair, placed on an empty chair, held on your lap…you get the point!

The fabulous So-Hooked handbag hook is an amazing product that will solve your handbag dilemmas. They are brilliant little hooks that are weighted and sit on the table, allowing you to hang your handbag on the hook – problem solved!

You may have seen our previous feature about So-Hooked handbag hooks and why we love them.

So-hooked has now launched a new hook design, a pretty heart-shaped hook with wrap around hanger. It remains as practical and easy to use as the So-Hooked range of handbag hooks, but it folds away making it even smaller. It’s a delightful design, and given its heart shape has particular appeal as a wedding favour.

The heart-shaped hooks are currently available in bold pink and will soon be available in a light pink and white.
