Words & images by Liam Smith Photography
Photography is subjective – what I like, you may not. This presents you, my dear reader, with a choice to make: what do I like, and can I afford it?
What is important to remember at all times is the true significance of photography and the photograph. It preserves our lives and our memories in a way that nothing else can.
I had the absolute pleasure in February of meeting Kent wedding photographer Benjamin Toms (and his impeccably behaved black labrador Byron!) – and we talked and talked. Ben’s approach to wedding photography is inspiring. I only wish you could have been there to listen to him talk about the work he loves – and to learn, along with me, some wedding photography secrets! I wanted to reintroduce you to Ben today. He’s been a supporter of the English Wedding Blog for a long time and I adore his work – his photography is simply out of this world, and his dedication is second to none.
Happy Saturday lovely people! I hope you have a wonderful day planned – we’re in Manchester after an amazing concert last night, and heading back on the train to our lovely Lake District very soon. But first – I wanted to show you something really inspiring and gorgeous and fun: a beautifully lit, romantic wedding in Mexico. If you’re lucky enough to have a summer wedding outdoors in the UK, how about some amazing lighting like this to make your evening reception spectacular?!

If you don’t remember seeing Amanda Karen’s gorgeous shoots on the blog, I should really remind you to check them out… they were some of my highlights in 2015. Getting to know Amanda Karen Photography has been lovely: images are always out of this world, and Amanda is truly lovely – so I’m thrilled to say they’ve joined my little group of handpicked sponsors of the English Wedding Blog. Amanda & James – welcome!
