2021 Wedding Photography Highlights
Here we go then, my 2021 wedding photography highlights. From a year of wedding rules confusion, last minute highs and lows, embracing the joy, remembering how to socialise (kinda), being so damn happy to get married (my couples), being so damn happy to work again (me), going with flow, incredible wedding organisational skills (2021 couples have been ON IT, which has been so helpful), letting all the happy tears out, brides speeches, weddings with 4/6/15/30/ 100 guests, weddings at home, cutting out the wedding bits that don’t really matter to you, dancing (so good to witness that again!), being part of an incredibly supportive industry, the list goes on.
A Year of Rules
It was really hard to keep on track of all the changes regarding weddings over the past year. With changes happening literally a couple of days before some weddings, it was really disappointing (and sometimes amazing, depending on the change) for some of my couples, but everyone took in in their stride. I’m thankful to have such incredibly organised couples, having back-up of back-up plans, spreadsheets, and just brilliant attitudes to the whole situation despite having to change dates and plans at the last minute.
Sheffield Wedding Photographer
It felt so good to be amongst the energy of wedding again after a very quiet (almost non-existent) year previously. Seeing people hug. smile, dance and sing together felt emotional for me, I had to swallow some tears from behind my camera many a time. The only good thing about having to wear a mask at a wedding is that it can hide a wobbly bottom lip. There were many, many happy tears all round, and such a huge sense of happiness. When you’ve had to postpone your wedding, sometimes two or three times, there is definitely a big outpouring of emotion when it finally happens.
My Oscar Speech
I’m looking forward to more of the same this year too. Some of my weddings coming up should have happened in 2020. It’s going to be one epic celebration when they finally happen, and I’m ready for it. Before I concentrate on the year ahead I want to say a massive thank you to everyone I have photographed this year. Incredible couples, their welcoming families, their brilliant friends, and their dogs… I can’t miss those guys out! You’ve all been an absolute joy, and have been so kind to me during a really shitty time for us all. Just to finish my Oscars speech, a massive thanks to my wedding industry buddies who have been an incredible support.
