I have been pondering what to write in this post (so much so that I have well and truly missed 1st January 2012) for a while. I haven’t come up with anything particularly groundbreaking, so, I thought you might enjoy some iPhone photos of the last year and a little round up. I celebrated some fantastic achievements in 2011 and I am so excited about 2012 – I have big plans for you, 2012! Namely – taking my business to the next level, becoming a cupcake baking expert and seeing my friends more than once every six months! I would like to thank all of the couples I had the pleasure of photographing in 2011 and say how excited I am about the weddings I have lined up for 2012.

Some highlights of 2011 included:

–  My first anniversary with the boyfriend…the first of very many, no doubt

– Passing my driving test and getting my first car (better late than never!)

– Going to Florida with the boyfriend and riding on the Harry Potter ride (for me) and Spiderman ride (for him) until I was sick. Oh and feeding dolphins at Sea World, even though this involved holding dead fish, which I found pretty abhorrent having been vegetarian since the age of eight. And having a Butterbeer.

– Seeing Friendly Fires at Brixton Academy – Hawaiian Air is my song of 2011, it just makes me feel so hopeful and enthusiastic

– Spending Christmas and New Year with my favourite people

– Having my photos featured on two of my favourite wedding blogs – Whimsical Wonderland Weddings and Bijoux Bride (now re-launched as B.loved!)

– Meeting so many lovely couples and getting to photograph their weddings. Thank you so much for inviting me into your special day and making me feel so welcome – I wish you all the best for the future.

To all of my 2012 couples – I cannot wait to photograph your weddings, I’ve met some amazing people already and I just know it’s going to be a fantastic year!

I hope you all had an incredible Christmas and happy 2012!!

A couple of sneaky peeks at Aradhna and Pete’s winter/Christmas wedding at Parklands Quendon Hall in Essex. The venue was absolutely stunning and sported not one, but two Christmas trees! I hope your Christmas preparations are well under way – I am very excited!
