Wait a second. Is it really the end of 2019 already? My head is still spinning with everything that has happened.
For a start I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to photograph some wonderful weddings abroad and all around the UK. My wedding photography schedule for 2019 has taken me to the colourful chaos of India, the tranquil majesty of Tuscany, the romance and magic of Paris, the beautiful island of Malta in the Mediterranean Sea and the sun-kissed beauty of Santorini – an all-time dream destination of mine which I can finally cross off the list.
Compiling my favourite shots from these and my UK weddings throughout the year was never going to be easy, and always going to throw up some surprises. No matter how much I think I know the images I’m going to use, looking back with fresh perspective presents me with dilemmas. So many that I’ve overlooked jump out as I travel back in time, each telling their own story and bringing to life a wonderful moment from one of the many weddings I’ve been fortunate enough to document.
I hope you enjoy the selection that I’ve put together for 2019 but please know that it wasn’t easy and there are lots of fabulous shots that didn’t make the final shortlist.
I really do believe wedding photographs have a life of their own. There is so much emotion stored in each one that they have the power to evolve their meaning as time passes, acquiring more nuances and depth. It’s true for both portraits and other kinds of moments, and I’ve tried to strike a balance of showing both here. Every one of them would look incredible framed and on display – and hopefully most of them are!
I can still remember taking each and every one, being part of a wedding is an emotional experience in and of itself. I couldn’t be happier with the photographs I’ve produced, or more grateful to the wonderful people who have given me the honour of inviting me to their big day, and the responsibility of recording everything for generations to come. Thanks so much to all of you.
Of course, looking back at 2019 also means looking forward to what’s in store for 2020. I already have a lot in the diary, including some incredible trips as a destination wedding photographer and quite a few UK weddings too. As cliche as it sounds, once again I feel like I have the best possible job in the world, thank to all my couples who put their faith in me.
I had an amazing time shooting an weddings all over the UK, some of my favourite wedding venues this year have been shooting a Jewish Wedding at St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel London, and Banking Hall, The Landmark Hotel, Wembley Hilton, Grand Connaught Rooms, Braxted Park to name a few. And of course shooting weddings in Tuscany, India, Malta, Santorini and all over this beautiful planet . If you’re planning on having a wedding in London, or anywhere else in the world, then please get in touch. I’d love to hear all about it and have the opportunity to be your wedding photographer.
