2017 Highlights

2017 Highlights


Well, where do I start? Once again, I cannot believe where the year has gone – maybe it’s because I had another child thrown into the madness! 2017 has been yet another incredible year for me and my photography. I’ve spent a crazy amount of hours in the car driving here, there and everywhere. I’ve witnessed 27 couples say ‘I do’.  I’ve seen tears of sadness and of joy teamed with nerves and excitement. I’ve assisted with button holes, sewn up a bridesmaids dress and transferred guests from church to reception venue! Not to mention taken thousands of images and eaten a fair amount of three course meals and wedding cake! It really has been a ball! (Ooh, and went to a rave in an Italian castle with the bridal party the night before the wedding!)



None of this is possible without the couples that book me to capture and be part of their wedding day. It’s taken me so long to select my favourites for 2017, there are literally thousands to choose from. But here they are!

Love and best wishes to you lovely lot!

Llanerch Vineyard Wedding - Emily & Darren

Emily & Darren’s wedding was my last to photograph in 2016 before I stopped to have baby Penelope! It was a scorching August day, the sun was shining and the birds were singing (and so were the guests) It was so much fun to have the bride and groom along with their guests sing their hearts out to “Summer loving” and “Time of my life” during the service!  It was beautiful from start to finish. Being 37 weeks pregnant, I had the support of a second photographer Jonathan Alec Cross-Jones – which I needed particularly during the speeches as at this point it was super hot and I had swollen feet!

Llanerch Vineyard is hidden away in The Vale Of Glamorgan, and what a stunning place it is. When you see the rows of vines in full bloom at this time of the year, you can’t believe you’re in Wales.

We saved going into the vineyard for photographs until the evening when the sun was a bit lower and cooler. It’s the perfect time to create these moments and for the bride and groom to have a bit of time together to talk about the fact they have just got married as the day does go so quickly.  It’s taken me a while to select my favourites from the day as there are so many, but here are a few!

Emily and Darren had such a fun day with all of their friends, family and gorgeous one year old son. There was so much to capture, beautiful details – I loved Emily’s lace dress! Gorgeous flowers and cake, and table decorations.
