Our best wedding photos of 2016
It’s fair to say that 2016 has been an awesome year – We finished our 2015 blog thinking “I hope that 2016 will be as good as last year”, and I think it pretty much lived up to it!! It’s all down to you guys though…we just take the photos. We’ve met some amazing people, had a whole load of laughs with guests at weddings and pushed ourselves to try out new techniques, bring new energy to our photos and re-working some of our old favourite ideas.
There are a couple of venues that stood out this year for us – We worked lots at the newest, coolest wedding venue in Derbyshire, the amazing West Mill. No matter how many times we go back there, we still never get bored, or struggle to find new inspiration. We also love Shustoke Farm Barns – We’re made to feel so very welcome by Emma and her team there and they always feed us some of the tastiest wedding food in the industry – thank you guys! (p.s Emma is one our gorgeous brides in the video below 🙂 )
That’s not to say that we don’t love all our other venues this year – We’ve headed to soooo many amazing ones – Tissington Hall, Dorfold Hall, Mythe Barn, Weston Hall, Losehill House, Calke Abbey, The Heath House, Osmaston Park, Donington Park Farmhouse, Hardwick Hall, Yeldersley Hall, Pimhill Barns, Swinfen Hall, The Nottingham Contemporary, Swancar Farm… and the list goes on. We’re really spoilt for choice!!!
It’s also been fun to work with some amazing people, both on weddings and photoshoots – Peak Tipis always do a great job with their awesome tipis and Kim put together an amazing photoshoot for us earlier in the year! Nadia di Tullio Flowers – one of the most creative florists in the business and one of the loveliest people you’re likely to meet (and also one of our 2016 brides featured in the video!). AIR Hairdressing, Claire Lowe, Rebecca Shearer and Josephine Way for hair and makeup – 4 super talented ladies, the fab Sandra and Lorraine at Lori G, providing so many of our brides with the most gorgeous dresses and so many many more!
Lastly, a big thanks and extra special mention to our couples and all their friends and families. We always say it’s not the big dress, impressive venue, or table decorations that make a wedding, it’s you guys, the people. For us, a wedding doesn’t come alive until the people start arriving which is why 95% of the photos below are of people – laughing, crying, being silly, being awesome… being themselves!!
Thank you everyone for allowing us to do a job that we love – Thank you for trusting me when I suggest heading out into the night in the rain with a bag full of smoke bombs and thank you for having us along for the ride – it’s been one hell of a year and we can’t wait to see what 2017 brings!! You’ve got a lot to live up to!
