Hey, I'm Jade! I Live in North Wales in a quaint Welsh village called Pontybodkin, in a gorgeous Victorian house with a garden full of colourful flowers. My husband Mel is my partner in crime. He's a crazy ass guy just like me, and loves my stupid quirky ways. He drives me bloody insane but I wouldn't swap him for the world
We have three dogs - Holly Frogs who is a King Charles Cavalier, who snores loudly but loves a pamper - when I get my hairdryer out, she's there expecting to have her hair styled too. Then there’s Bella-Bouvardere Glorisa and her baby Lily-Rose. They are Dachshunds, and are TOTALLY bonkers.
I have a huge passion for adventure and to live life a little differently, a little wildly. I like to be different, be free, be free from what people deem normal. I’m a big dreamer, and a lover of following your dreams. I’m a lover of fine foods, Italian food and tapas, in fact my most favourite tapas restaurant is a quaint outdoor restaurant nestled hidden away on the back streets of San Antonio – Ibiza, it’s so chilled and laid back, with twinkling fairy lights in an outdoor court yard. The food is beyond heavenly! Mel and I love to try to get to Ibiza as often as we can.
I love wildflowers, hippy markets, incense sticks and art - mostly Marilyn Manson (yep!) and Alberto Giaccometti. Most people have a travel bucketlist. I have a gin bucketlist. Literally a list of different gins from all over the world I want to try. I also have a little obsession with psychics. I hugely believe in ghosts, and enjoy going ghost hunting (I don’t do normal!). I have fairies all around my house as I really believe they keep me afloat. I’m obsessed with shoes, stinky cheese and the Rocky Horror Picture Show. .
Our wedding was a medieval banquet in a real castle, we had a jester who was beyond crude and cocktails in pewter goblets. It was so much fun! I love shooting weddings that are free-spirited and a bit wacky (that way I can fit right in). I love the confetti throw – that moment of pure unfiltered happiness, and shooting people as they rock out on the dancefloor with pure abandon. I totally get the desire to have an untraditional wedding, to do things differently, because I too was one of those people!
Shortly after my beloved nan passed away, my granddad pulled out his wedding album, you know the old fashioned kind you stick the images in yourself. It was beautiful, seeing the emotion, the rawness and tears rolling down his cheeks from losing his life long best friend, and the emotion of what he felt that day. Each and every photo triggered a memory for him that pulled on every single heartstring. Seeing him smile and stare at those images with so much love and devotion through teary eyes reminded me how much love really means, and how important it is to be able to have those memories forever. I knew from then on what I was going to do was a gift!
I LOVE Adventures & Laughter
