The best wedding photographs of the year 2017

03rd January 2018
When I tell people I'm a wedding photographer they always ask the same question "You must have some great stories!"

Darn tootin' I do!

And on this post I'd like to share some of my best wedding photographs, funniest moments and sweetest memories over the past year.

This year I seem to have really honed my ability to attract the crazy but chilled couples I love working with.

Here are some of my memorable moments (many of which are captured forever in the photographs below)

Holly swimming in a river and rolling in mud for her rock the frock session.

Kirsty and Jules having a Steam-punk themed wedding and discovering their wedding driver was so ill they had to be driven to the wedding in her dad's Saab. What I loved most was Kirsty laughing uncontrollably rather than stressing. What a star.

Emma scaring her son by showing off her wedding garter.

Jasmine flagging down a passing ice cream truck on the way to the wedding.

The bridesmaid Laura not quite mastering the umbrella throwing idea we'd carefully choreographed.

Every couple I photograph spraying me with Prosecco F1 style.

Photographing by a beautiful secluded waterfall in the Peak District.
Wondering why on earth a chimney sweep was walking down the aisle and kissing the bride. Apparently it's an old tradition I wasn't aware of.

Natasha and Jay's young children shouting 'ooh sexy, sexy" every time we tried to take a romantic photograph.

Being invited to parties and BBQ's and drinks by many of my couples, months after their wedding.

Being delighted that Kristina and Ben had chosen banging techno for their first dance.

Getting the whole afternoon to photograph a couple's elopement - giving me the opportunity to photograph wherever I wanted around Peterborough.

James writing me a colossal and embarrassingly lovely 503 word testimonial about my service. My second longest ever.

For me, weddings are all about enjoying yourself and creating the best possible memories with the people you care about.

Don't stress the little things.

Just embrace everything that happens - because even the things that go wrong often make the memories even better.

Trust me, I'm a wedding photographer.

So, which one's your favourite photograph?
