So there we are 2016 nearly over. Bam! I look back on all the creative weddings I have been totally honoured to be part of over the last year, all the people I have had the pleasure in working with and all the amazing families I have met; I am just so happy to be able to do this job and to be part a tapestry of lives. As ever, it just does not feel quite real, one day I will wake up to find that I am stuck in an office wishing I was a photographer.
This is is crazy job, but I have met the most wonderful couples, families and wedding suppliers this year. So I have travelled less this year as I planned to spend more time with my family after experiencing an awful family crisis last year, which has rocked our world.
I have tried even harder at following our family motto – Live every day, be the best that you can and laugh as much as possible. It sounds obvious but sometimes you just have to remind yourself because life is short. I always feel a little more sentimental as I look back over my work or the past year. I have chosen this collection of images as I they have brought back the fondest of memories of times when I heard big laughter or moments of calm or maybe just that honest emotion seeming out of the image.
What I really mean is a very big thank you to all of you who have booked me for next year and to all you fabulous people that I had the pleasure in working with this so far, thank you for making my dream come true.
