Lydia’s bump shoot and shower

 

Hopes and dreamsOn a gloriously sunny day in May, I found myself in a beautiful garden in Alderley Edge, Cheshire. Lydia’s baby shower was here!

 

Arriving early meant I could get some dreamy shots of Lydia in amongst the trees and flowers. With 30 guests expected for the baby shower, it was the perfect time to relax and chat about Lydia’s hope for her little girl (and of course go through lots of potential names!).

Lydia doesn’t go anywhere without her lovely little dog Bow, and he gladly posed for me too whilst we we were waiting for Lydia to get ready to leave – he even found the perfect patch of light under the hall way table!

And then we were off! A quick dash down the hill for me (and probably more of a waddle for Lydia!) and we arrived at Gusto, where Lydia’s sister Sarah had decorated the upstairs private room to perfection.

Pictures of Lydia and her partner Johnathan as children were dotted around the room – the new baby will definitely be a sweetie with parents as cute as this:

All the guests were treated to lunch, followed by cakes made by Lydia’s friend Lauren – these naughty treats were enjoyed by everyone..

Lots of games then followed – from quizzes about Lydia to guessing the bump size!

Nearly there...

And then it was time for home, with lots of emotional hugs and kisses from friends and family

Thank you to Lydia for including me and to Sarah for her fantastic organisation of the day.

 
P.S. Here is me with the glowing mother-to-be! I love the halo effect of the light above her head!
