Birmingham Wedding Photographer – 2015 Review

041 - Shustoke Barns Wedding Photographer - Hannah and Andrew

I can’t believe that 2015 is already behind us. It’s been an amazing year and I’ve had the opportunity to work with so many wonderful couples in some stunning locations. I photographed traditional weddings in churches, civil ceremonies in manor houses, wedding breakfasts in village halls and amazing parties in converted barns. I’ve also had the opportunity to go to some more unusual wedding locations such as The Bond Company, a Victorian warehouse on the Birmingham canal network, for Ellie and Jacks vintage inspired wedding, and Kingsley and Froghall Station for a Martina and Chris’ steam powered celebration.

All of the couples I’ve worked with have been absolutely amazing and it’s been a real privilege to photograph their weddings, meet their families, friends and to be a part of their special day. Here’s a few of my favourite images from the year . . .

I’m really looking forward to 2016, it’s almost fully booked already so please get in touch if you are thinking of making in enquiry (2017 is also starting to fill up now too). I’ll be starting the year on January the 2nd photographing Gemma and Alex’s wedding at The Old Rose and Crown on the Lickey Hills. From there I’ll be covering a range of venues throughout the country – from Fazeley Studios in Birmingham city centre, all the way to Lupton House in South Devon.

It’s not been all weddings though, there’s also been some bands, a (prize winning) lemur and quite a lot of catwalk models too . . .

Before I sign off I have to make a special mention to two very special ladies . . . My wonderful wife and my beautiful little daughter, who have given me amazing support over the last year. I hope everyone has a great 2016.
