Along with Ian and Kim, I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Georgina and Graham yesterday. Despite the overcast weather, everyone was full of smiles and love was the order of the day. Georgina's "Audrey Hepburn" style was elegant, unusual and a real hit. The groom and groomsmen were handsome, the bride and bridesmaids beautiful, the venues awesome and the whole day was a delight. Here are some of our favourite images as a preview of what will be a beautiful set of photos. Thank you Georgina and Graham and families for a wonderful day.

The team at Jillian Dixon Photography are having a quiet day today-preparing for the wedding of Graham and Georgina tomorrow at St Andrew's Church Roker (the Arts and Crafts cathedral of the North-a nice Burne-Jones tapestry and some William Morris carpet to look forward to!) and at Durham Castle. We're praying for good weather for the lovely couple, and of course for ourselves!

My associate photographer/assistant Kim and I spent today at Kiki's Kabin at North Shields, courtesy of Nicky and Richard. We had a fab day photographing children large and small, as well as a bit of wall art- photographing it, not painting! The adults with the children were fun too! For those of you waiting for photographs of your little ones, they'll be available at late tomorrow afternoon.

I had the great pleasure and honour yesterday of photographing the baptism of Millie Olivia Parker. I've known her dad for several years and her mum is a recently met friend. Millie is the most beautiful and delightful little girl you could ever meet, so being part of her first "special day" was a real pleasure. As it was Easter Sunday, we were treated to the dressing of the cross with fresh daffodils, a touching and stunning ceremony. Thanks Clive, Sandra and your lovely families. Colin and I had a great time.

Big Boy's Toy!!!

As promised- some photos of my husband's pride and joy (not me of course- a 23 year old E28 M5, the rarest BMW production model) If anyone has £8000 to spare, it's for sale to a loving new home. Unfortunately, the other half has his eyes on a 1961 Chrysler- as big as a whale- eat yer hearts out, B52s!

Louise and Craig had their "engagement" shoot today. We caught the best of the weather at Tynemouth Priory, and tried out some shots in soft sunshine with a hint of a breeze (actually it was pretty darned windy!) Indie, Craig and Louise's dog came too. What a lovely family they make- and top models too! I'm looking forward to the wedding at The Crab and Lobster in Thirsk, and I'm sure we'll be able to produce some beautiful photos together. See what you think...

Still waiting for the BMW to arrive from its winter home.

Holidays are coming up shortly, so hopefully that'll give me an opportunity to get up at a crazy hour of the morning and sit in some Iron Age ruins (Castlerigg Stone Circle) waiting for sunrise. Then again...a three hour lie-in sounds attractive too.

Watch this space to see which road the vacation time takes...

(I'm putting MY money on the latter)

A Corker of a day
