Friday Foto - Why I love this image

I was sad to learn this week that our local bridal shop Cariad Bride,  Faringdon is due to close in the Autumn. Sue has run the business for the last 10+ years and many brides will have bought their wedding dress for their special day from her and experienced her great customer service. I have had the pleasure of getting to know Sue over the last couple of years and we worked together on a couple of styled shoots and frequently enjoyed a natter when I popped into her shop.    Unfortunately due to health problems Sue has decided to retire and her  knowledge and experience of the wedding business will be greatly missed by all, but I wish her well in her retirement and this next exciting chapter of her life.

For these reasons today's image of the week is specially chosen from a lovely shoot we at Merriscourt, a fabulous Cotswold wedding venue.  Organised by Jeni Crabb of Vanilla Rose Weddings & Events this is one of my favourites and shows off the lovely wedding dresses Sue provided for the day.



A sale of dresses is now on at Cariad Bride so do pop down and grab yourselves a bargain.

You can catch up on our full English Country Wedding shoot which is featured here:
