Cambridge Creatives Photowalk FUN!

Nearly two weeks ago (two weeks tomorrow actually - where did that time go?) I had the absolute pleasure and honour of helping to arrange and take part in the first Cambridge Creatives Photowalk with Claire and a group of wonderful, colourful and creative beans! You might have remembered me sharing the map and event info on here and all over my social media accounts at the time and since then I've been typing up and trying to finish my little account of such a fun-filled day to share with you all.

A few weeks ago we had discussed the route and I then got to have a lot of fun drawing up a map for the day, trying to capture lots of the key things we would encounter along the way!

I was super happy with how the map turned out and really enjoyed doodling lots of Cambridge related icons for a little bingo sheet we decided to include for the day's activities too...

On the day the weather decided to change from week long sunshine into a day of downpour but it didn't matter one bit because so many lovely folk still rocked up with colourful wellies, dresses, brollies and ponchos galore! It was AMAZING!

It seems the rain didn't put any one off and if anything, we got to the see the best selection wellies and brollies ever! I mean, just check out the line up of awesome brollies and happy faces in the rain here...

Claire had also arrange with the lovely folk of Cambridge Satchel Company to loan some of the brightest (and most beautiful!) satchels for the day. As well as making the group swoon and lust for satchels of their very own, they provided the PERFECT props and pops of colour for everyone's photos on the day. I fell in love with the gorgeous bright pink number...

From streets lined with gorgeous front doors and floral displays to beautiful bikes and a sneaky peek in to the lido, the day was packed with fun things to photograph.

Even the cows got involved...

The walk ended with the stunning view of Kings College followed by delicious gelato from Aromi - the perfect way to end a walk whatever the weather!

I think it's safe to say everyone who turned up (from near and far) had a fun day exploring Cambridge through their lenses. You don't have to take my word for it though, just check out the hashtag on Instagram to view everyone's amazing snaps from the day: #CambridgeCreativePhotowalk.

If you'd like to read more accounts from the day too make sure you pop over to check out Claire's beautiful blog and take a nosey at the facebook event page for more accounts and updates.

I am so honoured to have been part of it all, I can't thank Claire enough for organising and leading such a fun-filled day and I can't bloomin' wait for the next one... roll on Spring time!
