2012 was an incredible year. I got to work with some amazing people at beautiful locations all over the UK and around the world. I was also really pleased to finish the year with several new awards from Fearless Photographers, making us one of the best wedding photographers in the UK according to their site.
I could say something about each and every couple I had the pleasure to work with, but instead I'll just show some photos!
love this moment between Anna and her friends just before we headed off to the church.
Lara and her mum having a moment before the bedecking ceremony.
Keren heading down the stairs at Great Fosters, on her way to the church.
A funny shot from Lara & Jonny's wedding, taken in the morning.
The church at Lonato on Lake Garda was one of the most stunning buildings I've ever set foot in. Lauren and her Dad had a long way to walk!
Sophie and Matt coming out of the church in Amersham, love their expressions!
Happy faces on Matthew and Gemma after their wedding in the church at Windsor's great park. The Queen's church no less!
Possibly the funniest moment I've shot all year; the sign is perfect!
funny speeches are always a highlight!
Named one of the best wedding photographers in the UK
Well this has been a long time coming (very much behind on my blogging this year!), but I had an amazing time back in June out in Lake Garda with Joe and Lauren. Everyone was extremely welcoming, and my love of shooting in Italy several times each year was seriously reinforced after this fun weekend in the sun! So much so, Marie and I returned just a couple of weeks later to the same spot for some holiday time, and we had an amazing trip exploring the small towns of Sirmione, Garda and Bardolino. Joe and Lauren, thank you so much for bringing me out to Lake Garda for your wedding, there's a reason I was there still shooting at 2am... you're great people with great friends and I had a blast making photographs for you :)
Lake Garda Wedding Photographer - ALL PHOTOS
2011 was a such great year, so many memorable weddings and fantastic clients. Here's a little set of my favourite shots from across the year, and why I loved taking them!
I just love the three reactions in this shot, taken just after 'sock-gate' :)
The Bridal Suite at Hedsor House is one of my all time favourite rooms for great light.
Mmmm... I do love a reflection shot.
A quiet moment for final preparations
I just love the way the light fell across Wendy's eyes in this one
A great mix of nerves and excitement in Anna's face... such a nice atmosphere in her hotel room in the morning before the wedding at Ashdown Park
Nicola looked amazing, and this Ravello hotel backdrop was just as elegant for a lovely portrait before heading to church
Such a happy day at Coworth Park. You can see the excitement on Jo's face as she arrived in the sunshine :)
Karine making her way down the amazing staircase on the way to an outdoor service at Hedsor House.
Penny's arrival in Greenwich, I love the golden light at autumn weddings!
The first time they saw each other in the wedding day, moments before the service...
I love the excited expressions on Matt and Maria's faces
I like looking for alternative angles at churches :)
I love the colours from this sparkler line at Jon & Helen's London wedding
Stunning Ravello backdrop for this silhouette... the boat passing by was just a bonus :)
The moment just after Emily's veil nearly took off in the wind

I love speeches, and most importantly, the reactions!

I just love the emotion in the face here, just after dancing with her dad.
