I was very pleased to find out this afternoon that my blog (this blog!) has been named in the UK’s Top 100 Wedding Blogs list:-)

When I think that there must be literally hundreds (if not thousands) of wedding related blogs out there, to have made the top 100 list, which is compiled by The Easy Search UK wedding services directory, at number 55 is fantastic.  The list contains all the UK’s most popular and famous blogs so to be on the list is amazing.

I assume that of the many factors which go in to to determining which blogs make the list, visitor numbers must be high on the list so I would like to thank everybody who takes the time to visit and read my blog – it is much appreciated and I hope you enjoying reading the blog as much as I enjoy writing the posts!

    Claire - Visitor numbers, and I’m sure also the sheer amazingness of your photography too Neil.
    And being the friendliest, most down to earth and genuine wedding photographer – getting great comments on every shoot you do… all of that contributes as well I think.
    Well done :)

Yesterday, Michelle and I got back from an amazing 3 days break in Rome – what a beautiful city!

Although getting round as many of the sights as you can (and there are a LOT of sights in Rome!) was quite tiring, we had a brilliant time.  Rome is just beautiful, one of those places where there is a building which just has you in awe, around almost every corner. Places like The Vatican, The Colosseum and the Trevi Fountain just have to be seen to be believed – the architecture and history of these places is just incredible.

Of course, despite covering two brilliant weddings last weekend, I couldn’t resist taking my camera to Rome, I knew I’d regret it if I didn’t. I didn’t go too overboard with the photography, just 1 camera, 2 lenses, a small bag and no tripod. I know from when we’ve been away to other places that if I take too much equipment, the photography side takes over so this time I was just snapping away for fun like everybody else. This meant almost all the photographs were taken during the height of the day – no magic hour in these shots!

Whilst we were in the Colosseum, Morgan Freeman brushed past us (not who you expect to see right in front of you as you turn a corner) but unfortunately I didn’t have my camera ready at the time! Oh well….

Anyway, here are a few of my favourite Rome photographs:

    phil - lovely collection of images Neil….you have captured the beauty of this City so well….it has inspired me to go book some tickets too. What is the fish eye type lens you are using? The distortion is just perfect for these images….very nice indeed.

    Rich - Not bad photos… OK they are ridiculously good! I think Jo and I have definitely made the right choice for our wedding photographer in August! Amazing shots. Plus, I think I know what wedding gift I will be nudging Jo towards when we go to Rome and Tuscany for our honeymoon… a fish-eye lense! Jo…???
