‘I tried to be normal once….worst two minutes of my life.’ Ziad K. Abdelnour
Hi I’m Yvonne. I’m a professional photographer. I live in a village in Nottinghamshire with my husband, two dogs and three cats. I love being a wedding photographer and feel lucky that I get to travel all over the UK to photograph wonderful weddings for amazing couples. Those couples say lovely things about me and the images I’ve produced for them, this makes me feel happy and proud. At your wedding I won’t bring a list of shots or make you stand through never-ending groups. I won’t boss you around or get under your feet. We will wander off for a short time for some fun and fabulous portraits, and a few groups if you would like them, but for the most part I will photograph your day unobtrusively and as it unfolds.
Family and friends say I’m not all there. So where the hell’s the rest of me?
I’ve been a qualified professional photographer for nearly 30 years and yet I’m virtually wrinkle free. Awesome.
I trained as a medical photographer but wedding photography’s much more fun, there’s a lot less blood for a start!
I laugh at inappropriate things at inappropriate times; like when the wind took my dress up around my head at a wedding and everyone saw my knickers. I fell about laughing, the guests fell about ill. I don’t wear dresses like that anymore.
The potato crisp is mans single greatest invention and the olive his greatest discovery; both are my waistlines downfall.
I’m mystified! Neither Eddie Izzard, Jason Orange or Rufus Sewell have asked for my hand in marriage. I’ve promised them olives. I’ve promised we’ll do bad things!
If we learn from our mistakes how come I’m still so bad at maths?
Apparently my problem is I’ve never grown up! How’s that my problem?
My pugs can smile and my cats purr a lot; Eddie Izzard reckons cats don’t purr they’re drilling.
I have eclectic tastes in music and listen to Radio 3, Punk Rock and Queen, although I’m currently in love with Jake Bugg & Miles Kane.
I was into Heavy Metal when I got married. I had a perm. I looked like a Cocker Spaniel in a wedding dress. Such an epic look!
John Logie Baird was a great psychic! Knowing I would love to watch Top Gear and the Superbike racing he invented the TV. Good old Jonny, how thoughtful.
I’ve seen Die Hard six million times and Sense and Sensibility about the same.
I saw a duck sleeping at the side of a pond once, it was dreaming; I’ve wondered ever since what it was dreaming about!
But what care you of me when there’s you my peeps! Ring! Ring! Let me know how you met; your lovely love story and fab wedding plans. In the words of Bruce Willis, kind of, ‘Come to Nottingham, we’ll get together, have a few laughs.’
