Business as usual -old and new

Wedding wise, last night saw me going over wedding album proofs with a February couple
 
Friday will see me meeting with a new prospective couple, the bride to be having been a bridesmaid at a wedding last year. It's always nice to get these kinds of referrals, it's a sign that something went right on the night and that a good impression was left behind with the guests and wedding party.
 
My next wedding isn't until 11th May, but it's sure to be a biggie as the couple have planned an elaborate day involving church wedding in Port Glasgow, meal in Glasgow itself and then back to Port Glasgow town hall for an evening reception. Somewhere in there we have to squeeze in a few photos too. I've roped in an assistant for the first time ever for this one, so it will be a new experience for me, delegating some of the tasks, whilst still keeping my own approach to the wedding photography and experience.
 
Tonight I'm off to darkest Crossford, by Dunfermline, for a wee charity fashion show for the RNLI. My mother inlow got a tow off a lifeboat, so I thought it was a good enough cause. A local boutique will be showing their wares at a nice hotel.
 
Thursday night I am going to the Glasgow Concert Hall to be wowed by the makeup creations of Clydebank college's students. These events are a feast for the eyes and the imagination, as well as being a chance to network with new talented makeup artists and other creative folk in attendance.
 
Sunday will be my first attendance at a wedding Fayre, I will be showing at Cruden Hall in Greenock. It's a smallish show, but will be a chance to ease into the process. There's another fair in town on the same day, so hopefully lots of couples will be shopping around. My 2012/2013 calendar still has a couple of gaps here and there that it would be nice to fill.
 
Then the 1st May sees me returning to the catwalk (so to speak) as I go up to Glasgow again for one of the big fashion shows of the year, Nightwalk. This promises to be a grand occasion with some talented designers showing their work on the catwalk at the Arches. (get your tickets quick as they're selling out!)
 
The 3rd May is a little more unusual for me. Jacki Clark, who has been a stylist on some of my shoots, has a wee sideline organising Burlesque Cabaret nights. So she has invited me along to be the official photographer for the night. These nights are mostly about comedy and music, with the burlesque element punctuating the night with its own mix of glamour, tease and humour. I was offerred a free ticket for my wife "to keep an eye on me", but it would appear that her trust is strong, or her desire for an early night stronger, so I will be on my own for this.
 
Then I have a week off up to the wedding, which might involve a night away somewhere..I think I might need it.
