OK, where did this year go? I seriously can’t believe it’s that time of year again for this kind of blog…The old classic ‘Best of’.

So, 2019 was full of amazing wedding with fantastic couples. That now seems to be the norm around here to be fair, I guess I just attract the cool kids 🙂 I’ve seriously shot weddings for some of the most lovely people and been allowed into their inner circle on the biggest day of their lives. Once again I’ve been all over the country and got to see some of the most epic wedding venues and also some of the most intimate ceremonies in fields, back gardens and village halls. They say variety is the spice of life and that’s 100% what my weddings offered me in 2019.

I’ve also been blessed with some awards in 2019. The year started with some Master of Wedding Photography awards and then ended with two MASSIVE honours. The team at Your Perfect Wedding Photographer put me in their top 100 UK wedding photographers and The Wedding Industry Awards saw fit to give me a highly commended award. Not a bad way to end the year if I do say so myself 🙂

The biggest thank you of the year goes to the couples that trusted me to capture their day…LEGENDS. Other thanks go to Chris Bunce, Lewis Membery, Amy-Rose Deffley & Ilaria Morelli. These guys second shot for me on a handful of weddings this year and your work was valued so much by me and my couples. The final thanks go to my amazing wife & children for putting up with me being away every weekend during the summer and editing long into the weekday evenings…I love you so much and for those that want to see what I get up to with my family outside of weddings, check out my journal page.

Finally, 2020 is looking pretty special with weddings in the UK and other parts of Europe. All the couples I’ve spoken with seem like genuinely lovely people and I am really excited to see what their wedding days bring. Let’s create some amazing pictures together.

I delivered close to 50,000 images this year to my couples so trying to pick less than 200 for this blog post was near impossible, but with that said here’s a round-up of some of my favorite images of the past year…
