I wonder if the pandemic of 2020 will change how we all see weddings. For me, it’s certainly made me focus on what’s important – that precious human connection we’ve all missed so much. When I look at wedding photography I want to smile: to see moments which make my heart leap or bring a tear to my eye. The hugs, the love, the power of friendships and closeness of family. I blog weddings which have soul – and so today’s Best of a Decade is a real treat for me. Huge thanks to lovely London wedding photographer Kristian Leven for sharing his wedding photography journey with us. I hope you love this as much as I do!
A beautifully shot, romantic elopement in Lefkada – beautiful bride Shelby and new hubby Daniel headed away from it all for a dream wedding, and their images by lovely Maxeen Kim are EVERYTHING. It’s been the toughest of years for so many, but I take my hat off to this gorgeous pair for eloping – for focusing on being married, and for staying strong through all the uncertainty of 2020. Shelby is stunning in a Wed2B dress; Daniel’s summer wedding look is from Next. The florals are exquisite – and planner Claire from Lefkas Weddings gets a glowing review from our happy couple!
What’s really important is capturing moments that our couples will love forever. Awards are just a nice bonus.
With every single wedding featured, our lovely couples fill out an interview to tell us about their day, their suppliers, their wedding photographer. It struck me that I’d love to know more about the folks behind the lens!
Lovelies, I hope you’re enjoying the sunshine and having a fabulous weekend somewhere fabulous! We’ll be heading to my folks’ house and hoping for a cake picnic in the garden… but before I go, I wanted to introduce you to gorgeous couple Tawonga and Ed. They got engaged in 2020, and they’re planning their wedding for this summer – but first, they had a pre-wedding photoshoot with our lovely friend Hannah K Photography. I wanted to share this with you because a) it’s super romantic and these two are the absolute sweetest and b) I’m a big advocate of engagement shoots! They’re a chance to spend a little time in your wedding photographer’s company, get used to the camera and capture some special memories of your engagement.
