Twenty Sixteen // The Wedding Photography Blog

– 34 weddings, 28 venues, 26 car hires, 9 bowties, 3 new lenses, 1 dropped lens, 1 stuck car, and many a new friend –

 Once again I sit here, sipping my cup of tea with my very naughty cats attacking me, reflecting on a fabulous year twenty sixteen has been. A year packed full of 34 fabulous weddings, commercial shoots, newborn and lifestyle shoots, and my first boudoir shoot.

I’ve visited new and exciting venues and met some incredible folk on the way, from the lovely couples to those that supply their day.  It has been the most perfect year, and 2017 is scheduled to be even better.

So what of 2017! This weekend I’ll be attending my first wedding fayre (details below post), photographing my first of 31 currently booked weddings, before going on my greatly anticipated holiday – to read books and top up on Vitamin D for two weeks to generally revitalise!

(NB. I’ll be away from the 7th – 21st February 2017)

Then upon my return, the fabulous changes will begin. New additions to my services, from shoot types – including Equestrian, Boudoir & Lifestyle.  To general booking processes updated to make the experience more simply and enjoyable to all.

I’ll be designing welcome packs for those that book to provide further information on how you can make the day even more special. I shall also be furthering my education from social media to photography with trips to seminars, festivals and workshops. Add to that new packaging, pricing and brochures topped with a sprinkling of new image ideas.

The process of all of this will begin once I’ve put the mojito & rubber dinghy away after my holiday.

To end I would love to say thank you to all that have made my year so fabulous. A special thanks goes to ‘The Harris’ & ‘The Priest’ who photographed alongside me when I needed and Sarah too for putting up with my mental moments – not the cats however as they have only dealt me abuse and caused these said moments.

Anyways below are some of my favourite images and moments from my 2016 weddings.

Enjoy a happy and eventful 2017 everyone!

Lots of Love
