Meet Helen Whelan (aged 39), who is a mum to Rosie aged 5, wife to Andy and business owner of Sweetness & Delight Wedding Cakes based in Bedford. Helen’s love of making cakes started as a child baking at home with her mum and in 2009 Sweetness & Delight was born and since then has gone from strength to strength achieving recognition and praise from others within the wedding industry. She works full time from her home, in her purpose built cake kitchen designing and creating beautiful wedding cakes.
I met Helen about 5 years ago as we both work in wedding industry and also Helen is one of my returning clients, previously I created her imagery for her commercial business together with her profile head shots. She also appreciates and understand the value that family portraits are priceless!
In August it was Rosie’s 5th birthday and Helen booked me for a mother and daughter photo shoot. She asked me to create both natural and stylised photographs and I suggested some ideas and looks so they could bring a few outfits on the day. So after a few hours of playing in the studio with hair and makeup, changing outfits – we all had lots of fun. Later Helen said Rosie really enjoyed being in front of my camera, she was so well behaved and followed every pose i asked her to do so I could capture her expressions, thus creating some timeless imagery. Rosie already wants to know when she can come again! Rosie is a such happy girl she told me she loves dancing, swimming and school (hopefully that will last for some years yet!).
A huge thank you to Jacqueline Egan, Make-up and Hair Artist and Owner of The Bridal Works based in Newport Pagnell who did an amazing hair and make-up for Helen and Rosie for this shoot. Jacqueline specialises in Bridal hair and makeup as well as bridal silk flowers and bouquets, and kindly helped me style this look!
So any brides and grooms getting married in 2016, I can highly recommend both wedding suppliers – to find out more and contact them at the following:
