BEST of 2016
Wow, wow, wow! What a year 2016 was! Firstly I'd like to say a MASSIVE thank you to all the lovely couples who entrusted us and our kit to capture their very special days. You allow me to have just the most awesome job and I LOVE every minute it! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
And thank you again (I know, that's a lot of thank you's) to everyone who voted for me as 'Best Wedding Photographer 2017 Regional Finalist in 'The Wedding Industry Awards'. It was a huge honour to have this recognition and fingers crossed I might make the cut again this year. Being published is also always a huge honour, and our work has been featured on the pages (and blogs) of 'Wed Magazine' and 'You and Your Wedding' Magazine.
Last year (yes, 2016 IS last year already!), saw us visit so many wonderful and varied locations, from Cornwall, through Devon, Somerset and Dorset and a trip to the Midlands. Barns, stately homes, manor houses, mills, hotels, golf courses, countryside, coastal and riverside - all stunning settings for truly unique weddings.
It always amazes me that the outcome is the same, to be married, but the journeys all vary so, so much and it is this story that is such a pleasure to capture. There's been big dresses, short dresses, beautiful long dresses; braces, tails, tweed, feathers, sky-high heels and comfy flats. Hay bales, balloons, motor-bike and side car, Morris Men (and ladies), pipers, pigs and pandas, glitter, magicians, dogs, a Storm Trooper and a Toastmaster in a red jacket... Pies, Fish and Chips, canapés, cream teas, buffet's, platters, roasts and dry ice desserts; big cakes (massive in fact!), little cakes and cakes of cheese.
So how on earth do I choose ONLY 100 images for this snap shot of last year? With great difficulty! Why only 100 then? So you don't get bored half way through scrolling down them! I've rolled with the images that I love, not all of them by any stretch, but a small selection. Some are beautiful, others are funny and the rest, well I'll let you decide.
So here's looking forward to another totally awesome year of amazing weddings. Things kick off again next month, in February and will continue throughout the year. I'm lucky enough to be in the position to be almost fully booked already for 2017, so after a very eagerly awaited holiday to the mountains later this month, will return refreshed and excited to get behind the lens again. Bring it on 2017!
