DIY, Destination and Outdoor Wedding Photography

My 2 0 1 9 Year Highlights


From Outdoor Wedding Photography  in  a French Vineyard  to Gorgeous DIY Barn Weddings In Yorkshire


This year has been fabulous! There is not one wedding or family that I have photographed that I could compile as my one favourite. This is why this blog is handy as it is here to highlight all of my best moments of 2019. This piece will take you on a wild ride of emotions, laughter and natural moments captured by me. Not all of my families and weddings are able to be shown to the world, but just know that you are all so important to my year and have meant so much to me creatively. It will also let you into a few facts and numbers about my best blogs of 2019 and statistics that are scientifically compiled. However. That last statement was untrue, but I have it on great authority that the numbers are true (because they are accumulated by me)!



…my first destination wedding in France which was extremely exciting. My lovely couple had an opportunity for outdoor wedding photography, conducted by their family, with food trucks, a home made cake and a first dance (also outside) in a romantic courtyard. I promise you that it will be up on my blog in full as soon as possible. Previous to this wedding I have only had the pleasure of calling myself a destination wedding photographer in Sweden. Gladly I can now add France to my list!



…all of my weddings that I was privileged enough to photograph. You would think that the more you are around a subject, the less emotional you would be. It turns out with weddings, this is not the case. It is not surprising – as a person my tear level is at a very high potency. But being involved in one of the most personal days of someones life, you get choked up, no matter how many times you have seen a ceremony or heard a speech. They are all different and wonderful and come with their own set of tear jerkers.



…my portfolio (as I have said above my first wedding in France) which was held on a vineyard and also with a wedding at Denbies Wine Estate. Both were equally beautiful and wonderful and as you can imagine were accompanied by rather fine wines at dinner too! Having outdoor wedding photography is such a blessing, especially with turbulent weather forecasts in the UK!



… in all aspects of their wedding days. This year alone five of my brides made their own wedding bouquets and I was present for eight home made wedding cakes! These beautiful days were merged with wonderful wedding suppliers as well as home made touches. This is something that is so special about wedding days, no two are ever alike and the creativity that is out in the world is fabulous.



… than I ever have done before. This is such a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with past couples who have extended their families, but to also to make bonds with new people. Thanks to the wonderful world of the internet my business has been able to connect with families from all over Surrey and it has been amazing. This is something that I hope to continue to grow because being a family photographer in Surrey is something that I am deeply passionate about.
