Best of 2018
So it’s that time of year again and yet again my mind has been blown, my heart strings have been pulled and my backs got a little bit achy from awesomely long wedding days. I feel so lucky to have met so many lovely people and been a part of so many amazing moments, it really is incredible when I look back at past couples albums how many memories come flooding back.
And that’s the point right? As well as the stunning photos you’d like to frame, this year I’ve tried to focus on family and special or joyous moments. Though they may not be shared on Instagram these are often amongst the most important photos, and it’s so important to remember.
Wading through the river at The Tythe Barn, Priston Mill to capture sunset photos in the field behind.
The Norwegian choir making quite a few people tear up at Lucy & Alvar’s Wedding – and the full wedding party sing along that evening!
The many, many memories of people on the dance floor from grandads doing twirls to nephews with hands in the air on an ushers shoulders.
Walking through Holland Park in Kensington with Tracy & Sam and watching peoples faces light up – also still managing to find a quiet spot for photos!
Jen & Mike fully embracing the rain – this is why my kit’s waterproof!
So to everybody in 2018 – thank you!
And to everybody who’ll be getting married in 2019 –
Let’s freaking do this!
Thank You All
I would also like to thank everybody that made this year so special and of course primarily that’s the couples. I know wedding days put you in a good mood but everybody was so lovely and I’m still yet to meet a bridezilla! Thank you to you all, for smiling for laughing, for being amazing in front of the camera even though you thought you’d be awkward! I hope I let you enjoy your wedding to the max and have some stunning memories because of it.
Also thank you to the venues! The Lost Orangery really cemented it’s place as one of my favourites this year but the staff at Coombe Lodge (who won best country side venue – woop woop!) Priston Mill and Grittleton House (big shout out to Emma) were endlessly helpful as always, plus they’re all gorgeous venues so I can’t recommend them enough. Of course there were so many other great venues, many of which I photographed for the first time, highlights include the gorgeously old Brympton House in Yeovil, The Painswick in the Cotswolds, Cripps Barn in Cirencester and Thornbury Castle.
Finally the suppliers and I’m going to do a terrible job of remembering people here but Eat Five Star did marvelously creative food at Euridge Manor. Katy Pheiffer and Ellie Hitchens did some really stand out make up, and Stacey Jade wowed with hair. For flowers Through the Looking Glass Flowers and Jill Jefferies were brilliantly creative as always. Oh and I nearly forget the fantastic entertainment! The best band has to go to The ZuZu Men, and best DJ is no doubt Kieran Clarke
