Hi! I'm Beth!
I am originally from New Zealand but I live in the wonderful Midlands now with my lovely husband and our gorgeous rescued kitty Wobbles.
Here are some things about me:
Photography is my life. It's my true passion and I love that I can do it all day, every day.
I used to be a veterinarian. True story. I'm a creative at heart though, so I now photograph weddings instead!
I met my husband at veterinary school. When we met, I was dressed as Darth Vader and he was dressed as Luke Skywalker. He is a practicing veterinarian in Leamington Spa.
I am both an Aussie and a Kiwi. I was born in Australia but grew up in New Zealand. I have been living in the UK for nearly three years now. Yeah nah bro, I have a terrible accent. But it makes wedding guests laugh.
I first got into the wedding industry as a wedding harpist at the age of 11. I basically picked the most random instrument I could think of, and started playing that!
I am a huge animal lover. One day I'm going to own all of the cats (and like 50 dogs)! Still trying to convince the husband on that one. I love it when people bring their animals to weddings!
On the subject of animals, I have a beautiful cat called Wobbles, who has a condition called cerebellar hypoplasia (have a google, her name is literal). We flew her to the UK from New Zealand and she likes to help me run my photography business by meowing loudly when I'm trying to edit photos and attacking my camera bag. She might even have her own Facebook page (not ashamed)...
I love music! Playing music, listening to music, attempting to sing (often in the shower).
I'm laid back, relaxed, don't mind people laughing at my expense (whatever it takes to get the photo) and often make people laugh without meaning to.
Don't be surprised if I join you on the dance floor at the end of the night. I love having a boogey. I cannot, however, guarantee that my dance moves are very good.
I have a slight addiction to chocolate. Okay maybe more than slight. We never have any in the house because I eat it immediately.
I dance when no one is home to really bad 90's music. Actually this is a daily occurence!
I am a total Potterhead. I'm a Hufflepuff. I always wanted to be a Ravenclaw but I've now come to terms with my complete and utter Hufflepuff-ness. I will openly admit that I did the Pottermore patronus quiz for my cat and that I was excited about the fact that her patronus is... a cat. I would say based on this that the sorting hat is exceedingly accurate.
I feel very lucky to be living this life. I have an amazing husband, wonderful pets, and I get to wake up and do what I love every single day.
Here are a few of my favourite things: sushi, beaches, salt water, golden light, dolphins, Adele, the colour green, chocolate, Queen, kumara, ice cream, sleeping, really bad rom com movies, crazy socks (preferably with cats on them), sparkly things, American Horror Story, animals, unicorns, Tunnock's tea cakes, travel.
