A Year in the Making // Twenty Twentyone
What a crazy pick’n’mix selection box of emotions 2021 served up. From the highs of getting featured in Vogue to the lows of spending 10 long days isolating with twin toddlers. In summary, I’m glad it happened but I’m not sure I would want to do it again…!
After the barren lands of 2020, it was a blessed relief to blow the dust from our cameras and get back into a blockbuster summer of weddings. It’s fair to say this early euphoria was soon replaced by the reality of cramming 2 years worth of weddings into the space of 6 months…but hey I’m here writing this so we lived to tell the tale.
On the home front, after many happy years in London we moved west to find ourselves a project house in the city of Bath. I can now understand how people catch the renovation bug, with the need to fill the void left by brick dust and raw adrenaline. I can only hope the next one doesn’t involve sleeping on floorboards for 4 months.
Bath is such a unique and amazing place, not simply for its Georgian splendour but the cafe scene isn’t half bad either (I’m looking at you Landrace bakery). There’s also a real sense of community amongst a growing number of creatives and super talented wedding suppliers we’ve been lucky enough to meet up with.
To be fair we’re still back in London most weekends shooting weddings but in that sense we get the best of both worlds. Having our cake and eating it twice over.
Finally, to our 2021 couples (and the few that snuck in from 2020). We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making your weddings so amazing in the face of such odds. We salute your steely determination to make the day a reality whilst jumping through a seemingly endless series of hoops. You’ve have been a constant source of energy and motivation to keep us moving forward one wedding at a time through this strangest of years.
We can only hope that our pictures do some justice to the incredible moments and stories we’ve witnessed in 2021, here are a few of our faves…
