a few favourites from a wonderful whirlwind of a year

each year throws a whole, crazy new world of weddings my way, and last year’s was absolutely and completely the greatest so far. 38 ceremonies between sweethearts, and a whole host of different venues across the length of the country. To each and every one of you that played a part in this past year; thank you. Thank you for inviting me into your homes, your happiness, your lives – it’s been an absolute pleasure. Your trust, your creativity, your ideas, it’s been so much fun capturing each of you making the day your own. I tried to make a short list of photos from each and every one of your days, but in reality it didn’t end up all that short – anyhow! Settle in with a cuppa, and enjoy! L x
