BEST OF 2022

Crazy to think as I sit here typing this blog, nearly 1 stone heavier due to the amount of beer, cheese and chocolate I have consumed in just 7 days of my Christmas break, that this is my 4th full year. Despite the fact I now feel like complete sh*t, this break was well and truly needed. I would not be concerned but I have one final wedding on New Years Eve, so let’s hope I can fit into my trousers!

Welcome to the best of 2022. For personal reasons this has been the best year of my life. Sounds a bit extreme but it really was. We moved to Bude Cornwall, our little boy Cash Charlie Lennon Jude was born in May and Moxley our working line GSD become a part of the family. I also shot 50 weddings which was by far my most ever. Would I want to shoot 50 weddings again? In short, no. I am an honest person and although the extra material I have gained for my website and of course the experience obtained are priceless, I felt absolutely burnt out by October.

This year I got to shoot weddings in Birmingham, Somerset, London, Essex and even a destination wedding in Portugal. I loved every single one and met so many fantastic people. First of all, a huge thank you to all my couples who booked me. It means everything to me that you trust my documentary approach to weddings. This is the most important day of your life so the fact you are putting all your faith in me to capture those all important moments still amazes me.

Another mention to all the suppliers I have had the pleasure of working with. I really hope my photos have helped your business and please always reach out to me if you ever need any more photos. I will respond as soon as I can and will happily send over as many photos as you need. Just please remember to credit me eh?! *wink wink*

A final obvious thank you to my family and new friends who have helped and supported me this year. It means everything! A particular expression of gratitude to my wonderful wife for everything you do. From bringing our baby boy into the world to putting up with me having to leave you whilst I travel away shooting weddings. Love you loads.
