Clogs, Windmills and Gallant parking

I was recently doing some photographic work in Holland. I was really looked after while I was there - the Danish people are just lovely. As I was coming out of my hotel one morning I noticed this parking sign...

The Danish people really know how to look after their ladies :0) x

Gary Grace - King of Swing

I met Gary Grace at a recent wedding at Ripley Castle where he was singing with his swing band. Gary has an amazing voice and his band give a high quality performance and I was soon singing away whilst photographing the bride and groom's first dance. We kept in contact and he asked me to take some photos for him whilst he was performing his 'A Tribute to the Kings of Swing' show at Ramside Hall, where he sang a couple of Michael Buble songs, which went down a storm. If you'd like to book Gary he can be contacted at or his page on Facebook.

Becky and James Pre-Wedding shoot

Becky and James are getting married at Ripley Castle in North Yorkshire and decided that they'd have their pre-wedding shoot there too. There had been weather warnings all week before the shoot and when I got up on the Saturday and looked out the window, there was our second fall of snow for this winter. Snowy pictures are so rare in England (as opposed to lots of rainy ones ;0) ) so I was very excited to head down to Ripley and meet them. They were very brave being out in the snow but they wrapped up warm and we never stopped laughing all the way round.....

Celebrating our mums

It's Mother's Day this Sunday and what better way to celebrate with them than to have some photographs taken... creating precious memories of the family love and bonds we have. Nick is a partner and hairdresser extraordinaire at the award winning Hobson Holmes hair salon in Westpark Village, Darlington and wanted some special photographs of his mum Janet and him. So, we met at her house on a gorgeous spring day - lots of blue sky which is great for March! and had a walk round the village where she lives...

If you would like a voucher as a special Mother's Day gift, please contact the studio on 01325 482985. x

Our Albums

Over the years I have researched many wedding album manufacturers and in my opinion Queensberry wins hands down. They pride themselves in making the best quality hand-made albums in the world.

The video below illustrates beautifully one of the reasons why I work with Queensberry as my album supplier. It shows the love and care that they have for their clients and products. You can also find more information at

Happy Valentines Day

Crikey, I didn't realise how long it was since I'd done a blog post - it's been so busy at Burns Rowatt.

So, since it's Valentines Day and the world will be celebrating love, I thought I'd make this a special post..... Boudoir photography has become very popular, whether it's a present from a bride to be for her new husband on their wedding day, a confidence boost to celebrate a poignant time in your life, a birthday or engagement gift.

My boudoir sessions are such a relaxed and fun experience. They are set at a stunning location, my clients are pampered with professional hair styling by the amazing and talented Nick and his team at Hobson Holmes and make-up by Melissa Popple. Then we have an all female team to take stunning and gorgeous pictures. The shoot is about being totally gorgeous and embracing your feminine and sexy side. If you'd like to unleash the goddess in you, we have some special Valentines promotions (there's no excuse for buying flowers from the local petrol station guys :0)) ... if you'd like further information, either call the studio on 01325 482985 or e-mail me at

Here are some photos of my latest Boudoir shoot with Nadine, at Headlam Hall Hotel, which have also been featured in The Northern Echo Weekend supplement..... Happy Valentines Day x
