As we start a whole new year, it is such an enormous pleasure to look back across the past year and put together this blog post. It is a selection of images from weddings throughout the year, including lots of my very favourite moments, although by no means all!
It has been an incredible year, with so many wonderful couples inviting me to share such a momentous day with them and their loved ones, and capture all this for them. Before every single wedding, I still feel butterflies of both excitement and nerves, and I'm sure that I always will. Every time I pick up my cameras and start photographing, that wedding is one of the most important days in the lives of those people, and I never forget this. To create this set of images for people, images that hold those moments forever for them, that transport them back to the feelings of their day, this is what makes it all worthwhile for me, what gives me the buzz of excitement every single time.
The photograph above is one of my very favourite moments from this year, and an image that I was particularly happy with. When Sarah and Duncan's marquee suffered a prolonged power cut just before their first dance, they eventually decided to just carry on regardless. With no light and no power, the band played a brilliant acoustic number and the wedding guests lit the dance floor with their smart phone torches and sang and stomped along with the music. I was so delighted to capture the joy between Sarah and Duncan, with their friends and family cheering them on. That and many other equally emotional moments I have witnessed this year, are what gives me goosebumps and keeps me absolutely loving every moment of this wonderful job that I do. I cannot wait for another year of weddings to begin and I am so excited about photographing everything for my 2016 couples. For now, here is a look back across last year. Huge thanks to Laura Cullen for assistant shooting with me throughout much of 2015 - a couple of her wonderful images are also in this blog post. Put the kettle on, get comfy and have a browse through - I hope you enjoy it!
