For my 2017 round up, instead of a ‘pretty’ collection of portraits etc, I thought I’d gather together some of my favourite expressions and moments from the year, and what a year it’s been. I say this every year, but I’m incredibly lucky to do this job, and to be invited to spend the day with each of these gorgeous couples. Each wedding was different from the previous one, but the common theme was love and fun. Hopefully you can see from the pictures below just how much fun I had! This may take you some time, so I’d recommend getting a large cuppa ready before you start. (I think I should have called it ‘Teeth and Tears’, ha ha!)

2018 is shaping up to be even better, if that’s possible. I can’t wait xxx
