Angie & Jenna ~ Buxted Park Hotel wedding

I remember it was about this time last year that I shared Angie & Jenna's engagement shoot on the blog. I'm super thrilled to be sharing their wedding with you guys today- again, in celebration of pride month!!! These two are one of the most in-love couples I've ever met and their happiness is just infectious. Their big day, set in the lovely Buxted Park Hotel, was filled with many happy tears and even more laughter despite the torrential downpour in the afternoon. Look out for the evening shots showcasing some gorgeous golden light!

* A massive thank you to my badass friend Jessica for second shooting this wedding with me and looking after my wounded leg!

2017.

I know I probably say this every year but I don't think I've known any year that has gone as quickly as this one. This year is rather special because it marks ten years since I picked up my first digital SLR..and I love it as much as I ever did. I think if I could time travel to the past and tell my 16 year old self this is the journey that my little canon 400D was taking me on, my young self would have laughed in my face. Umm you mean making a living doing what I love the most...? I don't think so!!! 

And of course none of this would happen without my couples. To say that I am grateful is a bit of an understatement, and thank you is not quite enough. But my vocabulary is limited so it will have to do for now. To all my wonderful couples, whether you're past, present or future; thank you, and thank you. You may not realise it but this isn't merely a job of mine, it's also where I learn to experience and celebrate life through your life...the amount of goodness, happiness and love that I've felt in every single wedding that I have shot cannot be put into words; I can only hope they bleed into my work. 

Below are images of some my favourite moments from this year. As much as I love an epic sunset and the perfect creative shot, there is nothing quite like belly laughs, tears of joy and moments caught off guard.. Big love to you all, have a wonderful Christmas & New Years!!!
