a year in the life of a wedding photographer…

Well what can I say!! 2013 has been an AMAZING year full of some truly stunning weddings… I love being a wedding photographer. There has been rain and there has been sunshine but there has been SO much more than that…. like some epic first dances #Elizabeth and Terry! WOW!! Plenty of heart warming, tear jerking, not a dry eye in the room kind of speeches #Gemma and James! Beautiful! AMAZING details #Rachel and Tom… There has been gorgeous dresses, shoes, flowers #too many to mention, there has been so much prettiness, laughter and joy and so so much more….

2013 has taken me to lots of new and exciting wedding venues, like the Corn Exchange, Leeds; Harewood House, Leeds; East Riddlesden Hall, Keighley; Denton Hall, Ilkley; The Cheerful Chilli, Otley to name but a few¬†and even as far as London just the other week… it has also taken me back to some old favourites, like The Cruck Barn at The Craven Arms, Appletreewick and The Sun Pavillion, Harrogate. I’ve also had the pleasure of working with lots of other wonderful wedding suppliers, who I hope I will see again in 2014.

But most of all I have had the pleasure of meeting some really wonderful couples and been welcomed into their wedding days to capture some truly beautiful people… Thank you to all those gorgeous couples I have met this year, I couldn’t have done it with out you. I hope you will look back at your wedding photos and albums in months, years and even decades to come and feel all the love, warmth and excitement that you felt on your special day all over again.

I want to thank all my amazing friends and family and my gorgeous Waddington who have continued to encourage and support me throughout the year, thank you, your enthusiasm for my work means the world to me x

Here are just a few of my favourites wedding pics (and engagement pics) from 2013… HAPPY New Year! x
