Beatrice Perry

One fine July day, Beatrice and Beatrice decided to go on a walk to Angle tarn accompanied by Ilika the dalmatian and Dora the dachshund. They donned the extremely flattering and wonderful Piers Dresses, designed by Beatrice Perry –  one in storm chambray & the other in candy pinstripe. Beatrice Hasell-McCosh took her sketch book, as an artist you never quite know when you might have a moment for a quick drawing.

Starting down the track they passed by Dalehead farm and headed up the steep ascent stopping several times to admire the views. The natural rugged greens of the valley are completely breathtaking and only inhabited by deer and sheep. Occasionally the purple of a fox glove would peep up against the greys of the ancient dry stone walls which are typical to the Lake District. 

 Suddenly over a small incline having walked along the path on top of the hill they saw the lake – a magnificent cold and enticing place to swim on such a hot day! Luckily picnic supplies had been brought and they spent a leisurely couple of hours enjoying the rare Cumbrian heat wave.

That evening on their return they changed and Beatrice wore the Osmanthus dress, first in racing green and then in cherry red which matched the bungalow colours extraordinary well! As the sun set and the golden evening light disappeared over the hill the shadows raced up the valley and all in all it had been the most perfect English summers day!

Chateau de Queille, wedding in France - Hermione McCosh Photography

Ben & Beatrice – Chateau De Queille, France

This wedding was SPECTACULAR! I cannot thank Bea and Ben enough for having me as their photographer. The joy, happiness and fun of the weekend left me with the biggest smile on my face for weeks!

Arriving at Chateau de Queille is like stepping into some magical world. Everyone slept in either the castle or in medieval tents down by the river. Each person seemed to have brought their own sense of creativity to the weekend. Whether it was gathering flowers in the meadow to decorate the tent and make the bouquets or to the talented bride Beatrice Perry designing her own dresses as well as the bridesmaids dresses.

The musicians came from far and wide and were the most wonderful and eclectic mix. They serenaded the guests as the party walked through the woods to the ceremony. This took place in the most idyllic spot overlooking the chateau and was conducted by Beatrice’s brother. There were wonderful readings in French and English, including Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s Le Petit Prince. After the ceremony the champagne was brought out and everyone toasted the bride and groom. As temperatures soared all anyone could do afterwards was strip off and float in the cool shade of the river while munching on refreshing watermelon.

When the golden light descended on the day we made our way to the Pavilion where a delicious supper awaited us. Speeches were made and the traditional French croquembouche wedding cake was cut. Finally, of course there was music & dancing! But! This was no ordinary music. This music empowered dancing that shook every bone in your body, that rattled your senses and left you crying out for more! However, I will let the photographs take you on an adventure of one of the most fabulous weekends of 2016. Chateau de Queille - Hermione McCosh PhotographyChateau de Queille, French wedding - Hermione McCosh Photography

Winter in the Lake District

dalemain-7276Winter in the north of England has definitely been more extreme this year with the unbelievable amount of flooding. Cumbria and other parts of the UK have suffered. However there have been moments of beauty and I have enjoyed many solitary walks with the dogs seeing the colours changing and enjoying the winter light. A moment of calm before the season of weddings and portraits begin.dalemain-7280 dalemain-7282dalemain-7288dalemain-7321dalemain-7301cm-7249dalemain-7309See more of the Cumbrian floods post here.

Autumn changes

Thoughts of the moment

As the wedding season is sort of, nearly finished (five more to go) I have taken a moment to escape from city life and concentrate fully on photography. For the next couple of months I am basing myself in the Lake District, where could be more inspiring and beautiful? At this time of year the sun is rising and setting later and earlier and are able to witness the most amazing light without getting up at the crack of dawn!Dalemain-october-2015-3886Phenomenal colours, so vibrant and electric.

Into the wilds of Scotland

Last month I had the pleasure of joining the wonderful Kitcheners for their wedding workshop in Scotland. A fantastic experience meeting other like minded photographers as well as swapping tricks of the trade. I believe you can never learn enough and to be a part of these two days was invaluable. I would recommend it to any wedding photographer, whatever level.

On the second day we took a bus up to the magnificent Glencoe where we did a couple photo shoot with the delightful Chris and Sarah. He is in fact a wedding photographer himself but wanted to experience being in front of the camera.

Columbia rd flower market

Columbia rd flower market on a May summers day. The combination of heady scents, the sounds of musicians busking, the chaotic rhythm of the crowds moving back and forth, the east Londoners shouting their wares and the hustle and bustle of trendsters and expectant tourists is certainly a wonderful attack on all of the senses!
