So that was 2016.

I still can’t quite take it all in. 50 couples booked me for their weddings. 50 couples who trusted me on one of the most important days of their lives. 50 couples who, I hope, have photography that will last and live with them as the years pass. In the midst of the year, and the mayhem that ensues, it’s easy to lose sight of why I do this.

Looking back at the 360 images below it’s easy to remember why. It’s for love.

Every single wedding below had something very special, and that was usually the two people at the centre. In a year that’s taken me to Tuscany and Sorrento – via Surrey, London, Essex, Sussex, Wiltshire, Kent, Berkshire, Devon, Somerset and Oxfordshire – there has been one constant. Love. It might sound like a cliche but it’s no less true if it is. It’s what sustains us all. It’s what we live for and search for. This year has, once again, taken me to the heart of lives. We live in small worlds. But this job allows me to take a look into the worlds of others. What worlds they are.

Thank you. Each and every one of you.

Guy, WOW. So proud of you and all you've achieved after SUCH a busy year!! Insanely beautiful images, so much to love in there. There is a reason 50 couples booked you and 30+ will next year. You're truly a wonderful photographer and it's an honour to know you. You should give yourself a huge pat on the back and pour the largest glass of Lagavulin and say 'Cheers to me'. Well done. Just amazing. xx

You have some completely killer shots in this collection - the fireworks shot is incredible, all of your confetti shots are spot-on, I love the 'moody bridal party' one best, I think - such a great capture with the flowers... but most of all, I love how you capture the still, quiet moments in between, the moments that really tell the story. Fab collection!
