What a wonderful year of weddings 2011 was! I had the immense pleasure to continue to work with Marianne from Marianne Taylor Photography
as her assistant and second shooter. It was the year we travelled to Scotland, France, Italy and Malta as well as around England for stunning weddings - all different, yet all filled with much love.
Marianne continues to be a constant inspiration and support for me and for this I am very grateful. This was our third year working together and much of the time it really doesn't feel like work at all. I am so proud and happy for her as in this past year Marianne has got a lot of recognition for the incredible way she documents and tells the stories of the peoples' love for one another, not just on their wedding days, but by her Beloved and Engagement shoots, too. What capped the year off for me was to be able to witness Marianne receive the award for the best Wedding Photographer of the Year 2012
in January; she didn't believe she could win, whereas I never had any doubts in my mind.
It really has been an incredible year and was made such by the people I have met along the way, too; all the brides, grooms, families and friends, as well as all the inspiring and dedicated professionals in the wedding industry that make all the difference by being pretty lovely and awesome people all round.
The highlights of 2011 for me include meeting photographers Anna Hardy
, who photographed a friend's wedding in the spring and Emma Case
who is just lovely and so talented.
This year I've had the pleasure to work with Kim from Roseberry Weddings
, Steph from Fairyfuff Flowers
and Mark Brown
a film maker extraordinaire, all who I can wholeheartedly recommend for their services.
The guys from Wedding Smashers
continue as my firm wedding DJ favourites and they did an awesome job spinning the tunes at my birthday party as well in May. And last but not least, the best meal I ate on the job was provided by Jacaranda
catering. I'm so glad their amazing food was commended by the Wedding Industry Awards earlier this month, too.
For my own work, here are my personal favourites I took during 2011:
Thank you for such an amazing year Marianne. I can't wait to see what 2012 has in store, it already looks like an incredible year of weddings ahead of us! :)

This past year has been amazing and it feels to have just zoomed by - all of a sudden we stand at the threshold of 2011! I have couple more weddings to blog and I want to post a little review of the year that was 2010, but tonight all I want to do is to wish you an amazing New Year and say thank you for all your support.
A special thank you goes to all the wonderful couples I have been privileged to meet and photograph this past year on their special day and of course the biggest thank you goes to Marianne from Marianne Taylor Photography
who keeps me inspired, in line and most of all continues to put her trust in me to assist her regularly. She is simply amazing and I'm so lucky to not only call her my boss, but a personal friend, too.
2011 already looks pretty amazing, so I can't wait to flip to the New Year and share with you what we get up to! :) Happy New Year 2011!
