Wow, what a fantastic year 2009 has been! I was named the SWPP Members Choice Wedding Photographer of the year, I photographed more weddings than in any previous years, I set up a new wedding photography website, blog and Facebook page and, best of all, I got married myself!

I have been extremely lucky to have worked with so many lovely people at some fantastic venues, including Shrigley Hall, Rowton Hall, Belle Epoque Brassiere, Manchester Town Hall, Didsbury House Hotel, Ashton Memorial, Gosfield Hall, Mytton Fold, Mitton Hall and more.

What is really encouraging is that despite the financial difficulties everybody has been feeling over the last year, I already have more weddings booked in for 2010 than I covered in the whole of 2009. I will be photographing weddings in some really great venues, including quite a few that I haven’t worked at before, including Stoneyhurst College in Lancashire, Egypt Mill Hotel in the Cotswolds and Brocket Hall in Essex.

I also have some exciting plans for 2010 which I am really looking forward to working on. One of my ideas to start holding regular competitions for members of my Facebook page so please do invite all your friends to join the page (simply click on the ‘Suggest to Friends’ tab underneath my logo) so they can be kept up to date too!

So, as 2009 comes to a close I would like to say a huge thank you to all the bride and grooms I have worked with this year and I sincerely wish you all the very best for the future. I can honestly say that I have enjoyed working at every wedding I have been to this year.

And to all the couples I will be photographing next year, I hope your wedding preparations are going well and I can’t wait to work with you all in 2010!

Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year everyone.

Here is a slideshow of my favourite wedding photographs from 2009 .  12 months work in 3 minutes! I hope you enjoy it:-)

    wedding photography Glasgow - Yes very amazing pictures and it needs experience, skills and correct techniques to be a photographer who people can look up to for their wedding day.

Regular visitors to my blog may remember that I got married in August at the Cragwood Hotel in Windermere and, for our honeymoon, we went on safari in Kenya.

Michelle and I had an amazing time on Safari, Africa is just awe-inspiring. Our week long safari in Kenya was fantastic, a really great experience. It was also great to be able to photograph so many animals in their natural habitat.

I have already made a couple of posts about our safari, which include some of my photographs from our safari, but I thought it would be nice to make a slideshow of some of my favourite photographs – so here it is!
