Wedding Photography 2021 Highlights

What an amazingly strange year 2021 was. I have never shot so many weddings in one year, and in some ways I adored being busy and really throwing myself into weddings, I had the most amazing couples and seeing big weddings return was such a pleasure, even if a little daunting. I can not thank my couples enough for trusting me to share their day with them, each wedding was special and I have loved getting to know you all. But I totally felt the unbalance between work and family this year and towards the end of the year the term ‘Burnt out’ applied to almost every wedding supplier and I could totally relate. The stress of the pandemic and the logistic of being a wedding photographer during these times were really tough, but I managed to shoot all but one of my weddings, and my network of amazing photography friends grew even stronger as we all leaned on each other when we needed to. So yeah, two years worth of weddings in one year was hard but this year I am back to limiting my numbers, I am now fully booked for 2022 and 2023 is filling up.

Wedding Photography 2020 Highlights

It feels a bit odd to be posting a weddings highlights this year but it’s so important to reflect upon this rollercoaster of a year. As a storyteller, this years set of images is probably my favourite collection yet. It tells the story of UK weddings during a pandemic and those couples who choose to start their married life in the face of adversity.

There is no escaping the fact that weddings in 2020 were different but with a lot of the usual wedding ingredients stripped away, what you are left with is a couple, who desperately want to be married and there is something really pure and beautiful about that.
I’ve faced my own challenges this year too, from my health, to losing 70% of my work with very little government support. It’s not been an easy one. But I think we need to take the shit that life throughs at us and try our best to turn it around somehow. There have been some amazing things that have also happened this year. I was named as a top 100 UK wedding photographer by SLR lounge, Ranked in the top 20 for TIR Family, I also picked up a wedding award from TIR and WPJA. I took the time to brush up on my video skills and have been able to diversify into videography, making a commercial video for a school along with my first proper weddings video. I have also got myself an evening job teaching photography starting next year at North Herts College!!
I have no idea what 2021 will hold, I’m not going to think everything will be ok because the goal post keep changing but never the less, I’m still excited about it.
Stay safe and healthy

2019 was a good one! I honestly feel so lucky that I get the honour of capturing weddings for such amazing couples. I’ve shot at some awesome venues, second shot for some fellow togs (for the very first time!), made a wedding video and I won 9 wedding photography awards, including two ‘This Is Reportage’ awards, which was a real highlight for me.

I shot at the following venues (some more than once!) – Offley Place, The Farmhouse Redcoats, Priory Barn, Hunters Hall, Ealing Abbey, Houchins, Three Lakes, Milling Barn, De Vere Latimer Estate, Lanswade Hall and Tewinbury Barn. I have worked with some wonderful suppliers, some that deserve an extra special mention would be Videography by – I will Video, Flowers by – Heaven Flowers, Makeup by – Louise Jackson – Music by – The Nameless Three,  Roadrunner, Ceilidh – Licence to Ceilidh, 

I can’t wait for 2020, as my little ones get bigger I’m looking forward to having more time to devote to my business so I’m really excited to see where the year takes me. I’ve also got some amazing weddings lined up with some great couples along with some new projects that I can’t wait to get stuck into.

So, thanks again to all who made 2019 so very special. I wish you all a wonderful new year.
