Right, well, where the heck do I start here? This year’s weddings have been, in a word, spectacular. I’ve photographed wedfests, funfairs, snow, unicorns riding on dodgems, big hounds, little hounds, alpacas, tears, giggles and more beautiful people than I could ever possibly have imagined. Thank you SO, SO MUCH to all of my incredible clients this year, it really has been an absolute joy working with you. After an awful end to 2016 for my family, this year could have been a particularly difficult one for me – but you guys have helped put my heart back together in the most wonderful way. With everything I have, thank you.
Now, to the photos! (If you’re a Spotify user, I’m going to go right ahead and recommend you pop this playlist of loveliness/pure cheese on while you’re browsing.)
The wedding location and detail game was pretty excellent again this year. I travelled all over the UK and, I’ll not lie, delighted at all the northern & nerdy details. Ten points, couples!
Dogs at weddings was a much-welcomed theme again:
And this year I got to play with goats and alpacas too! Oh my days, it was amazing. Here’s what beautiful Charlie & Steve looked like surrounded by their new pals:
Annnnd here’s what was going on behind the scenes (big thanks to Sam Houghton for these!):
My couples were bloody gorgeous and I love them forever for humouring me as I played with prisms and fairy lights and hid behind bushes and othersuch madness:
The way you all looked at your loved ones melted my heart on more than one occasion:
And we had a whole lot of fun too. Y’know, in between the emotional carnage:
I think we can safely establish that these guys all had an absolute whale of a time:
The force was strong in the ol’ group photo antics:
(Pose level: HEROIC.)
I turned into a soppy whatsit every time this happened:
Annnnd what’s left? Oh. Oh I know.
AS IF I’D FORGET THE DANCING.
Thank you so much again to all the lovely folk at this year’s weddings; couples, guests, venue staff, suppliers and all – I hope you know how much you, along with my wonderful second-shooters, brightened up my year. Huge love to the lot of you!
