Best of 2022

Happy New Year!

Three weeks into January isn’t too late to be recapping 2022 is it? Hmmm, perhaps.

The truth is, it’s taken us SO long to choose our favourite images from the 24 beautiful weddings that we photographed last year, that it’s taken us until week 3 to get it all collated together!

But here we are, 24 weddings condensed into 100ish photos. Every time we look at this collection we choose new images to add in and we’re pretty sure that we’ve missed some absolute corkers. Nevertheless, we need to click the ‘go live’ button at some point, so keep scrolling for our very favourite images from 2022.

Starting with a storm!

We kicked off the year with Jen & Sandy’s blustery February wedding in Shropshire. ‘Blustery’ being the understatement of the year, as it was literally in the thick of storm Dudley / Ileen / Fergus (whatever storm they were on at the time). I‘ve a clear memory of making eye contact with the venue staff as the winds lifted the marquee cover a couple of inches from the floor and threatened to blow the whole thing away! We gulped, crossed our fingers and carried on. Thankfully, the super tight marquee ties held the thing in place and the noise of the wind was easily drowned out by the cheers, applause and howls of laughter at the couples wedding speeches. (A set of speeches that have secured a top spot for some of the best wedding speeches we’ve ever heard!)

A party to out do all other parties

Hallie & Tom helped to see off 2022 in style with their November wedding at the Tithe Barn in Bolton Abbey. The pair and their guests threw a party to out party all other parties!

Yorkshire, Shropshire, Hampshire & Marrakesh

In-between we were lucky enough to photograph at Danby Castle, the very same venue that we ourselves got married in! We photographed at the Courtyard Venue in Shropshire, a venue that we’ve been eyeing up for some time. We were treated to one heck of a wedding at The Grange in Hampshire (Look out for pink shoes & sunglasses below and you’ll know the one) and visited our forever favourite venue Middleton Lodge in Richmond. This year we were also super spoilt with our overseas adventures with a trip to Costa Rica & Marrakesh! The Beldi Country Club in Marrakesh truly stole the show for best wedding venue that we’ve ever stepped foot in. The fact that they dished up traditional Moroccan Tagine as a wedding meal did not sway our opinion at all! There’s more; lots of beautiful Yorkshire weddings and a good handful of outdoor weddings too!

Thank you

All in all we had a cracking year! We wrapped up the year with huge smiles on our faces and far too many photographs to compile into this best of the year wrap up blog.

A HUGE thank you to all the suppliers we worked with and to the 24 couples who trusted us. We’ll be forever grateful to you for choosing us as your wedding photographers and for bringing all the smiles, laughs and generally just being wonderful. Our year literally wouldn’t have been the same without you!

2022, you will be a tough one to beat!

So, As the memory of 2022 is slipping into the past and the excitement of 2023 is starting to take centre stage, we thought that now would be a good time to do one final recap of the best of 2022 in celebration of the incredible year we’ve had!
