It’s been an amazing year filled with some truly beautiful and inspiring weddings but I think we see enough of that on social media, so I’ve dug out a few of my favourite moments from weddings this year, which belong on the Wedding Bonus DVD, if such a thing existed.  Some are romantic, some are super-cute, some are just downright hilarious; I hope you enjoy them as much I did capturing them…..

And my personal favourite – the moment the helicopter owned by the manager of a very famous football club landed as we were in the middle of taking a lovely serene couple shot, and by way of apology, the passenger gifted this lucky couple a 15 minute flight over the Cotswolds – what an epic way to end their romantic day and this 2016 roundup….

OK, I’ve been terrible at blogging this year – it’s all been Go,Go,Go which is Great, Great, Great but I do hate to leave it so long!

So, I’m breaking it down for you ladies, and I thought I’d give you a one-stop shop picture gallery-style tour of all the little things for now – sharing with you some of my favourite accessories, flowers, food & ideas that I’ve photographed recently and hope that it’ll give you inspiration for your big days!

First on my hit-list is shoes (obviously)….
