As 2010 draws to a close I can reflect on some of the amazing weddings from 2010 which started at Kirtlington Park for the February wedding of Carrie & Adam and ended just before I flew out for my Xmas vacation in New Zealand with the winter November wedding of Vanessa & James at Northcote House.
2010 was a very busy year for me and I ended up shooting 47 different couples’ weddings at some of the most prestigious and beautiful venues in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Berkshire, London and Essex. We had sun, rain, snow, wind and temperatures from the high 80’s down to sub zero but, without exception, every wedding was different and every wedding was great fun to shoot which is down to the fabulous “up for anything” couples I was lucky enough to work with.
Of course none of this would have been possible without the amazing small but very talented team I have around me from the people who help me on the day at the weddings and those that help with all the important things that happen before and just as importantly afterwards, so I wanted to make a special thanks and mention this year to Lindy, Simon, Victoria B, Jenna, Theresa, Mike, Anna, Rachel and also a big Thank You to Jo Newman at Queensberry Albums and Nicole at Booked Images for their unfailing support and advice. Also a big thanks to Rowena at Your Berks & Bucks wedding magazine and John and the team at Guides for Brides. Thanks also to to Neale and Giles my fellow Colectiva wedding photography peers.
There have been lots of new exciting venues for me this year which I am very much looking forward to visiting and photographing in 2011 (many are already in the diary).
2011 for me starts with the winter wedding of Ruki & Phil at Stoke Place, Bucks in January but I have lots and lots of images to post up from the many weddings and engtagement shoots that I shot but didn’t get a chance to post up in 2010.
Also this will probably be one of the final posts from my Blogger blog as I move over to a funky new WordPress Prophoto Blog which will go live early in January 2011 along with a brand new website. All the posts will remain here on this URL but the new Blog will be able to host much larger images etc and lightbox and flash gallery slideshows which should make it a more engaging experience for my readers.
One final word of thanks must go to the fabulous team of girls from Ellie Sanderson Bridal Boutiques in Oxford and Beaconsfield who so brilliantly promote my work and allow me to display my wedding photography in their beautiful shops so thank you Ellie, Nicola, Laura, Barbara, Diane, Julia, Sam, Emma.
See you all on the other side in 2011!
