Life lately…

October was the month for adventures, we flew to New Zealand and America visiting family and friends along the way. All photos © and taken with my 4G iPhone.

A visit to the best candy store in Los Angeles (Soda Pop) was a must. Heaven!

Fanni Williams Auckland sunsets and muppet cupcakes

Beautiful New Zealand sunsets overlooking the North Shore from the Auckland’s Harbour + Muppet wedding cupcakes

Fanni Williams cuppa coffee and feet with dog

New Zealand has the perfect cuppa’s and randomly meeting Stanley at the B&B in Devonport

Fanni Williams San Francisco and alcatraz

Flew to San Francisco and spent 4 days walking up and down the steepest hills with a visit to Alcatraz island on the list which has an excellent tour

Fanni Williams American Vanilla Milkshakes and Auckland city gallery Damien Hurst

Had way too many of these vanilla milkshakes from various Retro diners and viewed some art… one of Damien Hirst’s if I remember correctly

Fanni Williams California Coastal route 1 sunsets

Hired a mustang convertible and drove down California’s Route 1 highway stopping in Morrow Bay seeing this amazing sunset, followed by a moonset!

Fanni Williams California Route 1 drive San Francisco to Los Angeles

Sheer clifftop drops and varying landscapes, around each mountain bend the view was simply breathtaking

Fanni Williams Los Angeles Hollywood sign and palm trees

Arriving in Los Angeles to palm trees galore and set on the hunt to get as close to the Hollywood sign as we could

Fanni Williams Palm Springs, Wind turbines

Decided to take a mini break away from Los Angeles and head towards Palm Springs and into the desert

Fanni Williams Joshua Tree National Park

But first a detour to Joshua Tree National Park … filled with a million of these naturally occurring stone structures scattered for miles

Fanni Williams Gondola Palm Springs

Found a 8,516 ft mountain to go up at the base of Palm Springs via a very steep cable car ride… in the middle of the desert… with an alpine forest at it’s tip

America is so vast and beautiful, so if you ever get a chance I cannot highly recommend enough doing the drive down the coastal highway and visiting as many places as you can whilst over there. And now to plan our next adventure!…

Have you done this trip before or been to any of these places? What did you think? Would love to hear your thoughts!

Thanks for stopping by.

Dasha - Loved following your instagram when you were travelling! So many fab images))

Kim - I did a similar trip a couple of years ago, We began in Las Vegas and drove through Death Valley, Yosemite National Park, San Fran, then highway 1 all the way down to LA and San Diego. We spent a good 4 weeks doing this. IT. WAS. THE. BEST. We loved it so much that we are getting married in Vegas in April :)

Fanni - Thanks so much for your comment Kim!. Sounds like you had an amazing trip to and how exciting about your upcoming wedding in Vegas!. All the best and have the most amazing day! Fx

Last month, one of my best friends got married… not once but twice… to the same man of course! (Hi Ian **waves**). I was honoured to be one of Kirsty’s bridesmaids for their UK wedding and super excited to photograph their New Zealand wedding celebration the following week in Auckland with family and friends who couldn’t make it over. More photos to come soon…

Tamara - I do love a bit of instagramming! And most of it looks delicious too!

Inspiration Project #5

As you may already know, I love to create and style my own little shoots (see here). A couple of months ago, I came across this fantastic little D.I.Y tutorial by Roy Joy and it got me thinking! How wonderful would it be to develop and evolve it into a rustic wedding inspired table setting? I wanted to keep it light and fresh with a limited colour palette and use natural fabrics + wooden elements to give it that earthy feel. The whole setup includes, a table seating plan, individual place settings and vegetable seed thank-you favours for guests to plant and grow after the wedding day. I had great fun making all this and I hope it inspires you to get creative too and make something lush and different for your wedding. Don’t forget to check out the D.I.Y on how to make your own egg shelled table goodness. Fanni x
