We’ve lived in Southsea for one whole year today. I’ve been bicycling and instagramming my way around Portsmouth, from summer days at the bandstand to chilly prom cycle rides on boxing day, and I thought I’d share some of my phone camera snaps. I can’t wait for another summertime by the seaside.
I had a great afternoon with Kelly & Phil along Southsea seafront and Old Portsmouth for their pre-wedding portraits. I had just moved down to Southsea and it was lovely to get out by the sea on one of the first hot days of the year. I think their outdoor wedding in May is going to be a lot of fun, looking forward to it.

I love Southsea. Jemma & Gareth live in an amazing flat overlooking to common and after a sunny evening’s stroll on the seafront for their pre-wedding portraits I am more than half convinced we need to move back there. (We are looking at a house this week!) I’m a bit behind on the blogging, they got married yesterday, but lets reminisce about the time before the wedding when they were still frantically making table favours and looking forward to the big day…
Jemma and Gareth’s wedding photos will be up in a few weeks (look forward to a sneak preview soon) To stay up to date, find me on facebook.
I was slightly concerned when I met up with Kelly and John at the Abarbistro in Old Portsmouth just before the start of the England- Ireland 6 nations match last weekend. A lot of people will admit to being reluctant at having their photo taken, but I thought there was no hope when I saw John sat there in his Ireland rugby shirt half an hour before kick off. He turned out to be very cool about it and we went for a little wander around Old Portsmouth and the interesting arches and walls around the Square Tower. Kelly has an infectious smile and John managed plenty of Next catalogue posing and we all had a bit of a laugh. Looking forward to their Port Solent wedding in the summer…
My good friends Cat & Wayne finally get married next weekend. I can’t quite remember how we know each other, it has some relation to Havant College and dingy rock clubs, but ever since forever ago they have always been together and seemingly destined to live happily ever after. They were even born on the same day. After the wedding they are going on an epic 6 month honeymoon travelling around Asia, so for their engagement photos we went for a little reminder of home. Southsea isn’t quite as nice as the Andaman Sea, but there are some great locations for photos, so we had a little wander around Albert Road and down to the seafront and the bandstand.
First up The Deco, current dingy rock pub of choice. It will be weird not having Cat and Wayne hanging about outside on a Friday night for the next few months.
