Best Wedding Photography 2018 Review

I photographed 40 weddings in 2018, and I would like to say a very big thank-you to everyone that had me photograph their big day this year.

This year I delivered over 27,000 photo to my clients, so there were quite a few to go through to make this blog post. I just choose images that I think either look pretty, or were a moment at a wedding that was either unusual or simply brilliant.

Here are some of the venues that I photographed at in 2018:
The Berkley Hotel, Leez Priory, Gaynes Park, Maidens Barn, The Rochford Hotel, Newland Hall, Parklands Quendon Hall, Creeksea Place, Crondon Park, Gosfield Hall, Langtons, Hylands House, Greenwoods, Nurstead Court, Hanbury Manor, Gorse Hill, Magdalene College Cambridge.

Sophie and Richard’s sense of humour, at Leez Priory.

I like how the fairy lights could almost be Spiderman’s webs.

Holly was the bride that never complained about being cold, thank-you so much, said me in my coat and gloves.

This year, I had a think about how can you take a photo of a sign on a bench that shows the text and the couple, without them sitting on it. Answer, make them stand behind it of course. But then, where do you put the bench? Then I found the spot. Thank-you Lucy and Michael for doing this!

DJ “I have a friend that can sing the first dance for you…”. Thomas had secretly organised for Lemar to sing for their first few dances together, to remember their first date together, a Lemar concert. Well done Thomas!
