BOOM, what a year of wedding photography!

It’s that time of the year again where I look back over last year and boy hasn’t it flown by? I must be getting old. It seems like yesterday that I was putting together my 2018 highlights but at the same time I’ve been to so many places and taken more photos than ever.

2019 saw me photograph my first Cornish wedding and capture couple shots on the beach, which has been on my photography bucket list for a while. You don’t have to ask me twice if I would like to do that again. I also ticked The Roman Baths off my list (twice) photographing both a morning and evening ceremony. What a magical place to have a wedding ceremony!

I’ve captured 35 happy couples tie the knot in and around Bristol, Bath and Somerset. I have booked 27 for 2020 and no doubt will book more along the way. I’ve also have already started taking bookings for 2021. So I have another super busy year ahead, but that’s just how I like it. I’m also looking forward to my first destination wedding in Italy. I love to travel so I’m hoping that I’ll be able get more bookings abroad. If you’re planning on eloping please drop me a line.

Lots of my couples and their families have commented on my images saying how relaxed, natural and fun they are with everyone looking super happy. This is music to my ears and just how I want to keep it going into 2020.

I like to say a MASSIVE thanks to all my awesome couples over the last 12 months or so. You’ve all been so welcoming and it’s been an absolute pleasure to be part of your big day. Without you guys my photography career would cease to exist, so I’m genuinely grateful to you for choosing and trusting me as your wedding photographer.

I’m also equally thankful for all the couples that have booked me to photograph their wedding in 2020 and beyond. I can’t wait to photograph each one and see where my photography journey takes me. Being around happy joyful people is incredible and really makes my job so enjoyable.

After hours of deliberating and looking through literally THOUSANDS of photos during 2019 I’ve managed to narrow down my favourite shots. I hope you enjoy looking through my selection as much as I enjoyed creating them.

Here’s to the new decade. May it bring us all happiness and plenty of moments like these!
