"One of the real highlights of the day was the time spent having our photos done... Everyone always says that you need to try and snatch a few moments together on your wedding day, we felt that we ended up with a whole hour!” Beth&Tom
“Martin and Penny, I just don’t know where to begin, other than asking if you are indeed real life wizards! You are AMAZING AT WHAT YOU DO!!! I absolutely love the photographs and have spent the entire morning pouring over them and reliving our wedding! Thank you so very much for all the work you’ve done … I’m over the moon with them and can’t WAIT to show my friends and family! You were both absolutely brilliant on the day and herded us all well. Your photographer’s eye is outstanding … and I’m chuffed to bits we found you! We will look forward to receiving the USB stick in the post and sharing a few pics on Facebook with friends too. Thank you again for your expert work you two … you make a wonderful duo!
Thank you both again, from the bottom of my heart … I always said the photos were the most important and now they’ve turned out to be just about the best money I’ve ever spent in my entire life! THANK YOU!!!” Lucy
“We chose Tino&Pip because we desperately didn’t want the stereotypical ‘wedding photos’ with uncomfortable, staged group shots or for our guests to feel uncomfortable with a lens in their face all day. We found Tino&Pip and after one look at their website we knew we had found just what we were looking for. Tino&Pip bring the word ‘cool’ to the world of wedding photography and run with it. Our photographs look like something out of an incredibly hip magazine and Martin & Penny’s ‘photographer’s eye’ is outstanding. Just when you think they must have seen every angle or photo opportunity in the room they bring even more out the bag. To work with, they are an absolute delight. Their joy of other people’s weddings is so evident. They 100% listen to what their client wants … they listen with their eyes wide open! Thank you Penny and Martin for creatively and cleverly allowing us to relive our wedding day again and again by simply looking back though our incredibly shot photographs.” Lucy&Dylan
A Quirky Brighton Engagement Shoot Following a Rap Battle Proposal!
We’re pretty proud of the fact that we managed to plan the majority of our own wedding in about three months, but on Saturday we shot Jackie&Adam’s wedding after they’d spent just two months putting everything together! Somehow in that time we also managed to squeeze in an engagement shoot around Brighton, taking in some of Jackie&Adam’s favourite spots around the seaside town.
These guys were so great during the shoot – they have so much fun together, and really wanted to make the most of Brighton. Jackie is from Texas, and when she starts to feel a little homesick, finds JB’s Diner the perfect comfort (if you ever find yourself in Brighton, you really have to try their mint chocolate chip milkshake, it’s seriously amazing!). We also went in search of some graffiti, but found most of their favourite artwork had been covered up. Despite that, we managed to find some other pretty spectacular murals in the North Laines! Thanks so much Jackie&Adam – hope you guys are enjoying a spectacular first week of married life!
Kind words from Jackie&dam about their engagement shoot
“We absolutely love them. They’re beautiful, they capture our personality and somehow make us look completely glamorous. And they’re absolutely gorgeous scenery-wise. It made us a lot more relaxed about both the wedding and the photos of it.”
Chocolate, Magic & Spells in Choccywoccydoodah's Witches Kitchen
We realised not long ago that we’ve been so busy this year that we haven’t had a chance to visit Choccywoccydoodah’s new shop and cafe in Brighton! Well we got our chance the other day when we were invited to attend the launch party of the new Witches Kitchen, where you can create your own Choccywoccydoodah masterpiece, with tuition from some of the lovely Doodahs themselves! After a tour of the shop and cafe (which are amazing!) given by Christine herself, we were each given a little space to work in, and a choice of Choccywoccydoodah items to decorate. Penny chose a couple of mini skulls, and I went with two choccy willies…
Helped by the Doodahs, who were painted as witches and skeletons, we had a blast decorating with chocolate flowers, leaves and sweets, then piping melted chocolate and dusting with choccy glitter. After the glittery chocolate dust had literally settled, our chocolate creations were beautifully wrapped and presented, ready for us to take home with us. We really can’t recommend heading to the Witches Kitchen enough – it would be a brilliant activity for a birthday or hen party!
