My very last wedding of 2015 proved to be a great sign off on what had been a truly spectacular year. And true to its unpredictable form the Great British Weather delivered better weather 2 days before Christmas than it did throughout most of the summer.

A first for me, as Kelly arrived at the quaint and English country church on an bright yellow American school bus. A wonderful service and then back to the Hotel just in time to catch that last of the awesome winter light and all the Jaegermeister 😉

Thanks for inviting me along D+K and thanks for signing off my year in such an awesome fashion!

I spent 7 days with my cameras close to hand at home for two reasons: Firstly with a 5 week wedding breather I was getting an itchy trigger finger. And secondly, and most importantly, pointing my camera at something *anything* some how lets me see it in a different way and make some kind of sense of it…it sounds weird but its true.

Phoebe (as I post this) is 2 years and 9 months old.  She is fun, she is creative, she is shy and outgoing in equal measures, she is an observer and along with her mum (who she adores so much it makes me want to want to burst with pride) she is my whole world.

But she is defiant, fiercely independent and annoyingly determined.  And she is growing up.

This frustrates us and confuses her. Its easy to trivialise this as a phase, as the “terrible two’s” and hope she will grow out of it. BUT. When these are character traits you want your child to grow INTO rather than out of then…well then its hard.

So you wait and you watch and you share your frustrations, write a blog and take some pictures. But you refuse to become a parent who spends their life telling their child to “do as they are told”

And purely by coincidence (unless my camera has become some kind of miracle parenting tool) the week you slow down and start to look at things differently…well things start to change *maybe*

I see in these images all of the above: The fun, the bond with mum, the shyness, the defiance, the frustration and the anger BUT I can also see a change. An understanding and acceptance and control that I didn’t see before.

I have huge hopes for her. HUGE. But I know she will get there in her own way and in her own time.

And one day when Phoebe’s generation of little girls are ruling the world..maybe she will look back at this little outpouring and remember what a soppy sod her old man was :)

Chelsea + Carl went all out on their choice of venues. I have shot at Normanton a few times before, it basically appears to float on Rutland Water and based on my experience the sun never shines. BUT. The heavy skies and gusty wind give it a character like no other venue in the UK. Add a cinematic castle perched high above the surrounding countryside and you got yourself one wildy romantic and beautiful winter wedding.

It’s days like this that prove you don’t need bright sunshine and blue skies to have an awesome wedding day. It’s days like this that explain why I choose to shoot weddings all year round: The light, the intimacy and the all over ambience of winter weddings is such a welcome contrast and such a great match for my style.

C+C nailed it. Embraced it. Owned it.

And to top it all Leicester were and  *still*  are TOP OF THE LEAGUE!

The lead upto Christmas. Hanging out with family, watching Elf and GETTING MARRIED!!!!!!

Rachel and James met whilst running along Shad Thames so it only seemed right they should get married there too.

The view from the terrace at the Design Museum has to be one of the best in the whole of London…and as much as us photographers crave natural light, the london skyline at night has a certain romance that is pretty special. And what better way to take a breather from the love and mayhem of your wedding day than a brisk walk along the pathway that you met…taking it all in!

NICE!

Winter weddings can throw the odd problem the way of the intrepid wedding photographer. Don’t let the blue skies fool you! The Southbank on Josephine and Dan’s big day was VERY cold and VERY VERY windy. But with a bride and groom as super relaxed as J+D on my team we laughed in the face of the weather!

After a relaxed morning together we headed down to the hotel reception and grabbed some use of the awesome interiors and even braved the wind for a few portraits before J+D briefly split to be reunited in front of all their guests overlooking the Thames.

A great day spent with great people in a great location = photography win!

Thanks for having me along J+D and thanks for braving that icy wind!!! Here are your highlights :)

Another crazy crazy year. From Peckham to Santorini. Chasing light. Chasing stories. Still pinching myself that this is my job. How something this exciting and exhilarating can actually pay the bills.

I wanted to dedicate this years round up solely to the people. The Brides, Grooms, Couples, Guests, Families, Photobombers and Kids who have done what they do best in front of my lens….be Themselves!

I have been lucky enough to shoot some AMAZING venues and beautiful details throughout the year BUT all of my favourites contain a face, a character, a heartbeat. And most importantly an ENERGY! An energy that I think photos solely of “stuff” or “places” always seem to lack.

Whether it be dad keeping busy/filling the dishwasher during bridal prep, the mum’s sharing a sneaky fag/giggle outside the church, dancing uncle Bobs, emotional aunty Maureens, misbehaving grans/kids/dogs/veils, passers by (passing by), onlookers (on looking), bridesmaids taking *another* selfie, ushers doing very little ushering, the high fives, the fist pumps, the little glances and stolen kisses. IT ALL MATTERS.

A huge huge thank you to every couple who invited me along and trusted me to capture their biggest day.

*Beardy kiss*
