Hi Everyone!

As I write this new blog the snow outside is deep and from the window today it was very pretty indeed!

I have two pieces of great


Our new
Show Album for Rowton Castle has arrived from New Zealand from our Album Creators - Queensberry [click on Queensberry to go to their website]. It is beautiful and if you are considering Rowton Castle please come and see us and we will show you this Album which is 15" x 12" and its cute total half copy. They both have a photographic cover of Rowton Castle in sepia. If your Venues are else where please still come and see this new Album as it gives the best possible idea of how we can draft and have created a totally bespoke designed Album which - if the feedback is anything to go by so far - has the WOW FACTOR! Come and see us - no obligation at all - to have a chat about your Wedding - and if you are considering Rowton Castle - which is so popular - you may be looking at 2008/2009 - don't leave it though come and see us. We live only about 15 minutes from Rowton Castle.

NUMBER TWO - The Author of the "WEDDING BIBLE" Sarah Haywood - whom I have quoted many times in my blog - with her full approval click on this link to go to her website - has just published THE WEDDING PLANNER - these 2 publications would be a marvellous addition to any Bride's preparation and planning filing system! The Wedding Bible is so packed with the best advice I have ever read about planning a wedding and The Wedding Planner lets you organise all your bits of paper and lists etc. All great mementos of your Wedding too! [by-the-way this is nothing more than me wanting to recommend the very best in my wedding blogs - which I aim to do all the time!]

Before I finish - I would like to post this testimonial from one of our Brides - these words are wonderful for us to read - if you have time please read Helen's words:

The photos made me cry...again and again!! Reviewer: Helen from Worcs

I have to say that the thing I was most nervous about when planning my wedding was choosing a photographer I felt that I could really trust with the most important part of the day (next to the ceremony that is). From the moment we met Julia and Martin I felt totally at ease and comfortable with them both, they understood what we wanted from our photos and I was so confident that I gave them our booking immediately, we didn't see anyone else, I didn't need to.

Julia was in constant contact with me on the run up to the wedding, organising a photo session at their home because I wanted a signature frame for our guests to sign, emailing to check I hadn't lost my mind and offering tons of advice, nothing was too much trouble for them.

On the big day, Julia and Martin were there from the start; Julia was on hand with her emergency kit, in case of any emergencies!! Throughout the 'before' photos, Julia was very calming and Martin was very funny, keeping us amused, proved by the numerous shots of me laughing my head off. During the ceremony, you would not have known they were there and the posed photos were done quickly and painlessly. The rest of the shots were reportage style as we had requested.

They stayed up until the first dance, and we genuinely were sorry to see them leave, they were so much a part of our day!! The photos were ready to review when we got back from our honeymoon, amazingly fast!! We were not prepared for the volume of shots that they had taken between them, over 800 pictures!! They were all amazing and it was hard to choose but we managed to select our favourites. 3 weeks later we met with Julia and Martin at home to view the layout of the album and it was beautiful, they let us have a say in how it was set out so it would be really personal.

We were so happy with it; I didn't think I could be happier.I was wrong. The album was ready for collection the week before Christmas and I travelled to Julia and Martins to see it. Martin was so excited; I swear he likes it more than me!!! When I opened the Queensberry case I was amazed by the photo cover, the tears came almost immediately!! The album really did tell our story, page by page, it captured the emotion, the happiness, the fun and lots of laughter!! We had a canvas wrap done too of our favourite photo, it sits on our wall and makes me smile every time I look at it!!

If I was asked to recommend one service to get right it would be the photos. You could not go wrong with Julia and Martin. They have become true friends to us and 3 months later I still email Julia nearly every day. Spinning Your Dreams really did create the album of our dreams, something to really cherish forever. Book them, it will be the best decision you make!!!
