October was a very busy month with an awful lot going on, all very different!

Here are a few highlights from October:

A Gorgeous Autumn Wedding in Danbury

I'll be sharing a proper blog post about this wedding very soon, but in the meantime here's a quick shot! In mid-October I had a wonderful day photographing Jo and Dick's beautiful wedding at Danbury church and the Warren Golf Course

A New Do

I managed to get myself an appointment with the fabulous Lucie Luella, who managed to get my over-grown hair back into shape and far more glam. She is now based at Hula Nails in London, which has an incredible interior decorated with bright colours, flamingos and tiki galore!

Commercial Work

October was really busy with commercial work. Following my work last year, I was commissioned by the Ideas Festival to document this year's festival. It was a great fortnight filled with a wide variety of workshops and events, and I loved getting to know more about what was going on in Chelmsford.

I've also been working on a project with several museums, and during half-term I had the pleasure of working with the Geffrye Museum at the Wallace Collection and Dorich House Museum to document some of their events. They were both fantastic events and wonderful locations to work at!

Resolution Update

Recipe of the week is still going strong - I had a few tasty ones this month but the most photogenic was probably the chouquettes, inspired by watching Rachel Khoo's Little Paris Kitchen.

I managed to get to an exhibition this month too! I went to see Constructing Worlds at the Barbican and it was great - very inspiring, and a great opportunity to see many photographs printed at full size that I have previously only seen in books. These were my iPhone snaps inspired by the trip:

I'm also managing to keep up the weekly montages too, and am really enjoying having that weekly goal. This month my favourite is from 29 October:

How was your October?
