On the last day of the year I found it only fitting to create a retrospective of the year that has just passed. A year that saw me travelling the countryside, being invited into the lives of relative strangers to document and take part in the most enchanting ceremonies of our time. What an amazing privilege it’s been.
To look back over these images I can only say that I have one of the best jobs in the world. Not only do I get to travel to breathtaking locations, but I am lucky enough to photograph people enjoying the best day of their lives, sharing that day with the one person they can not live without.
Until getting married myself this year, I had NO idea how powerfully that day can change the very core of who you are. It is more than just a ceremony and a big party.. It is a rite of passage that declares your commitment to devoting yourself to something bigger than yourself.. that is Love.. and Life.. and all that forever stuff.
