And in the blink of an eye 2019 is gone, this year really has zipped by in an absolute blur. Before we get too far into 2020 I thought I put together a quick 2019 wedding photography in review blog post.

It’s been a hell of a year with weddings all around Birmingham, the West Midlands and throughout the whole of the UK. I’ve shot weddings in old warehouses, old factories, woodlands, farms, manor houses and barns. There’s been tears of joy and tears of laughter. Plenty of ceremony, a bit of song, some dance and a few wee drinkies thrown in for good measure too!

To give you an idea of how 2019 looked I’ve squeezed all my weddings into a 2 minute and 42 second wedding highlight video. It covers everything from bridal prep in the morning to the dance floor craziness at the end of the night. A few photos from every wedding combined to make a 2019 highlight reel. Press play, stick it in full screen mode (it’s the icon at the bottom right next to the Vimeo logo), oh, and please crack up the volume . . .

Before I sign off I’d like to say a massive thank you to all the amazing couples that booked me to photograph their weddings during 2019. Each one was utterly unique and it was such a thrill to have been a part of so many special days. I wish you all a brilliant 2020. And to all the couples that have booked me for their 2020 wedding . . . I’M COMING FOR YOU! Starting on the 11th January with Elaine and Richard’s wedding at the wonderful Nuthurst Grange.


Beautiful photography Simon, hope you’re coping with the madness that is 2020!!
