What a year...
I am not sure where to start with this blog, my final blog of 2022. I can’t really believe how fast this year has gone, time flies when you’re having fun! It has been amazing (sometimes a little emotional) looking back and seeing what I’ve achieved and how far I’ve come.
Things that have been my highlights… I got to the finals of the Muddy Stilettos and The Wedding Industry Awards. Some of my work has been featured in magazines. I have captured 40… yes you read that right 40 weddings, along with a couple of engagements, family, a corporate shoot and 3 styled shoots. I think about half of my weddings have been a new venues too, which I loved! So many incredible venues out there.
I’ve have done quite a few wedding shows, where I have met not only amazing couples planning their day (thank you so much for choosing me to capture your wedding) but also fabulous suppliers who are so lovely and talented at what they do.
My amazing couples. What can I say about all of you. I feel like with a lot of you, I’ve made some friends for life. You and your guests were so welcoming and so wonderful towards me that most of the time I just felt like I was one of your friends, which makes my job the best job ever.
One of my most favourite moments from this year was at Heaven and Sam’s wedding. If you follow me of the old social media, you probably know what I’m on about already! They had a beautiful church wedding and then back to The Arnold House for the reception. Sam was the last speech for the evening and it was a beautiful speech but at the end, he handed his beautiful wife a canon and he held one too… as they had everyone they loved in one room, it was the perfect time to reveal the gender of their baby… IT’S A BOY!!! Not a dry eye in the house.
I’ll move onto the venues and the wonderful people who run them. You’ve been amazing. I don’t think I ate a bad meal any where, so yum! I was lucky enough to visit lots of new venues this year and I really loved…
- Mythe Barn
- Draycote Hotel
- The Arnold House
- The Mill Barns
- Yeldersley Hall
- Charlecote Pheasant Hotel
- Donington Park Farmhouse
- Dodmoor House
- Colwick Hall
I think it is time I best share some of my favourite photos and moments with you all. Thank you to everyone who has been part of my journey in creating my little pink world.
My first 20 weddings of 2022, 13 of them were at new venues. I know some couples prefer if you have been to a venue before but it really doesn’t matter to the photographer. We love finding and exploring new places and finding new spots for photos. I love going to new venues, meeting new suppliers and getting new images for my portfolio.
My incredible couples and me
A few other photo adventures and personal fav moments from this year
2022 has been amazing from a home viewpoint to a work on. There have been a lot of adventures and I wish I could share more but I think this blog is long enough already haha! So… here is the rest of my 2022!
As you can see, it has been such an incredible year with the most beautiful couples. Thank you so much to all the wonderful people that have chosen me to be part of their day and capture so many wonderful memories.
I am so excited to see what 2023 brings.
