Top wedding photos 2018 round up.
So 2018 is done!
I’d like to say it’s flown, but in reality it’s felt like one of the longest years of my life. On a personal note it’s been quite a difficult year, when in April my life was turned upside down.
Luckily for me I get to ‘work’ with some amazing couples and spending one of the most important days of their lives, with them and their friends and family, has been a great distraction.
It’s amazing knowing these couples have chosen me to be there with my cameras to capture their wedding day. Photographing a wedding is all consuming and gives me chance to focus solely on creating photos that are full of real moments – and 2018 had plenty of them.
I’ve packed up my camera gear and travelled to weddings in Devon, Lancashire, Cheshire, Birmingham, London, Leicestershire and Denbighshire.
When I did my best of 2017, I said to myself that I wouldn’t leave it until the last minute to go through the thousands of images I have from weddings I photographed this year….let’s just say the thought was there!
There’s been dogs at weddings (more dogs at weddings please) and castles, tipis on a farm and tense games of jenga, Grandmas with new knickers, best men in ponds and a 79 year old getting to be bridesmaid for the first time (what a legend)…not to mention a wedding cake that got blown up!
Special mention goes to two venues where I had the most delicious puddings ever (and I’m not one for puddings!) Mitton Hall where the sticky toffee pudding was so light I thought it was going to float away and Tudor Barn Eltham who gave me ‘probably’ the best panna cotta I’ve ever tasted!
I still find it unbelievable that I get to do this as a job and share in all these moments. I also never imagined that by taking photos of some guests at previous weddings, would result in them asking me to be their wedding photographer! – This is probably the ultimate compliment and I will never take what I do for granted.
As always thanks goes to all of those couples and families who have been in front of one of my cameras, as well as a big shout out to all the people who support what goes on behind the camera.
The thanks this year is a bit bigger than usual. I’m very grateful for all the love, support and messages.
