19 favourite photo moments from 2019

January 1, 2020

I’m starting the year off by sharing the things I’m proud of.

Flicking back through all of the super special wedding photographs and inspirational small businesses I’ve filmed/photographed this year, I’ve realised there were quite a few gems in there that I’m pretty proud of. So I thought I’d share my faves with you.

First off, my all-time fave moment of this year HAS to be sticking it to the man and jacking my old “day job” and career of 20 years. Such a good feeling to be fully dedicated to my photography business and being my own boss is all kinds of awesome!

But apart from that little bombshell, here goes…

my 19 favourite moments from 2019…

  1. The time my awesome festival couple and their tribe ‘struck a pose’ with their smoke bombs 

2. The time the singing waiters at Ashton Lodge Country house, made wedding guests do lap dances to other people’s partners (don’t think I’ve ever cringed and laughed so hard at the same time)

3. The time this awesome little dude framed his face with a bubble for me at a festival wedding at Hadsham Farm

4. The time I got to photograph a really special friend’s wedding and share my workday with my absolute besties 

5. The time the boys at Hadsham Farm Festival Weddings thought it was a good idea to get full glitter beards, noses and heads

6. The time my bride with a broken leg managed to shimmy herself into a Kayak at the Saxon Mill, in her dress, so that we could create a photograph that was really special to them 

7. The most extreme tussle for a wedding bouquet ever witnessed at Worton Hall in the Cotswolds

8. The time Sam from the Drawing Board and mobile bar, popped the biggest bottle of champagne I’ve ever seen in my life. And then a little guy got dunked in the ice bath it cooled in

9. When I got to shoot these super-hot bloggers in Manchester 

10. The time the wedding car chauffeur carried my bride’s train over the field to get to the most beautiful wee church I’ve ever seen and avoid the cow pats!!

14. The wild Ibiza style wedding party at Swallows Nest Wedding Barn topped off with awesome Sax player

15. The time I asked a random wedding guest to jump into my shot so I could test my flash (for the bride and groom) and it ended up with this

Where am I based?

I photograph and film fun, relaxed, non-traditional weddings  in Devon (where I now live), Cornwall and throughout the UK (including quite a lot in Warwickshire - my original home).  Wherever you are getting married, if you're a fun couple planning a relaxed wedding I'd love to work with you!  Please get in touch.

I also travel all over the country to work with inspiring business folk for my sister company Firefly Productions
