Best Wedding Photography of 2018

Wedding Photography Year In Review 2018

So here we are - 2018 is over. Another year, and another truly incredible collection of weddings that I was lucky enough to be a part of. I still pinch myself that I get to do this for a living.

Since January I've documented marriages in museums, on a clifftop by the sea, at country estates, barns, warehouses, art galleries, an RAF officers mess, farms, castles, tents, tipis, bistros, hotels, Michelin Star restaurants and even one in a greenhouse. Yeah, 2018 ruled.

So, with great difficulty, I've pulled together a small selection (nowhere near all!) of my favourite shots below. These are just 100 of the photos that have stuck with me throughout the year and I feel these are the ones that reflect what it is that gets me excited to do what I do: interesting light, amazing people and stunning locations.

To all my couples this year - every single one of you - thank you. Words really can't convey my appreciation to you all for trusting me to document your weddings. Again, thank you.

So, in no particular order...

"To tell the narrative of what is one of the most important days in your life I believe it's important that I'm there from the start of the day all the way until the end of the night - capturing the important moments that tell the unique story of your wedding day"

I combine a nonintrusive, photojournalistic approach along with beautiful, modern portraiture that, when combined, provide an honest set of images that have a cinematic look where nerves, joy, tears, love, and laughter take centre stage.

To keep things nice and simple I currently only offer a single wedding photography package that delivers you perfect photos for your special day – with no hidden costs or extra charges for things like travel, meals or more hours.
