Lovely Photographs

June 20, 2012

I love photos. I also love having them around the house but find it increasingly difficult to find the motivation to print them now the responsibility lies with the photographer and not Boots the Chemist! Maybe that’s just me. However, when we got married last year (groan – here I go again about my wedding…), Mr lovelybyhanna and I were so excited to get our professional photos back and the printer was at the ready.

We were extremely lucky with our wedding photographer – we didn’t have to search at all because my brother and sister-in-law had found this amazing guy to do their wedding 2 years earlier and we were so impressed with both the quality of his work and how he “worked the crowd” on the day, it was a bit of a no brainer. Simon has since gone on to do the weddings of a few of our friends and we all consider him a bit of a legend – we love going to weddings where we know he’s the photographer as it’s a great chance to catch up with him and have a giggle.

They say a picture says a thousand words so rather than gush about how amazing he is and tell you if you’re looking for a wedding photographer in Hampshire (specifically) or further afield you’d be foolish not to pick this man, I’ll leave you with some of his work. Make sure you check out his website too – simply gorgeous!

Lovely Mums

March 12, 2012

It’s coming up to that day most Mothers love where they are besieged with love, attention and usually presents galore – yes, this Sunday is Mothering Sunday.

I always struggle with what to get despite every shop cramming in as much Mum related paraphernalia as possible so it’s always quite a stressful time of the year (along with Birthday’s and Christmas – so the whole year then!). I love getting all the lovely catalogues through my door from companies such as Cox and Cox or Notonthehighstreet.com and flicking through, mentally picking out what I could buy for my Mum but typically, I leave it until the last minute and end up rushing to buy some Chanel No. 5 product and a bunch of flowers, which I know she still loves. Flowers are a popular gift for occasions such as these – who doesn’t love having a beautifully colourful and fragrant masterpiece on proud display? But recently, I came across a fabulous place in Romsey, Hampshire which sells the most beautiful garden roses which make the most wonderful of gifts.

There are some cracking roses for Mother’s Day too with names, such as “Mum’s blessing“, “Mama Mia” and “Lovely Lady“. If you’re really lucky, you may find a rose with the same name as your Mum – just type in a name and see what comes up! They make fabulous gifts (I know as we presented the Mum’s with a “Mum’s blessing” rose at our wedding last year rather than a bunch of flowers that would sadly end up in the bin after a week or so) and will last for as long as your Mum looks after it, which with most roses, is quite an easy task providing they’re planted up properly.

Mum's Blessing Rose

If you’re looking for gifts for other occasions, such as birthday’s, new babies and even retirements, Pockocks Roses of Hampshire is the place for you. They’re a bargain too at around £10.

If you’re struggling – I really recommend buying your mum or that special person a rose this Mothering Sunday – she’ll love you for it and so will your Bank Manager!
