On Your Bike

nick and calum

Photographers Nicholas Frost and Calum Riddell are swapping cameras for cycles and cycling from London to Paris in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

Nick (who recently won another award this time for his baby rather than wedding photos) and Calum have already raised over £4,000 for their nominated charity but, as the duo don't set off on the 4-day ride until 2nd July, there is still time to support them by clicking here.

Sister Act

GWD's graphic designer, Jennifer McAdam, had a second daughter on 18th June. Amy is delighted with younger sister Mia who, at just a week old, photographed beautifully for Carol Frost.

Country Flavours of Alford, whose first wedding of 2014 was at Balmoral Castle no less, now looks after all the catering at Monymusk Estate.

Furthermore a marquee has been erected on the estate suitable for weddings for 80 to 300 guests, with the marquee being adapted in size to suit.

Apart from a beautiful setting on the River Don with Bennachie in the background, there is also an option to get married in the nearby Monymusk Church.

Tracy Allan opened at The Hair Room in Banchory Business Centre on Saturday 29th March, so Tracy is now available both in Banchory and Peterculter.
