This post has been 'brewing' in my mind for the last couple of weeks, and I thought it would be quite easy to just sit down and write it. Here I am though, sitting in front of the screen and not knowing where to start... When I look back at 2011, the whole year feels so overwhelming! I know I probably say it every year, but honestly, it feels like we've only just celebrated Christmas and New Year like a couple of months ago! 
This year has been really good to me... I met some great people and made great friends. I worked with wonderful couples and photographed their beautiful weddings. One of the reasons why I love my job is meeting so many different people from different backgrounds. Getting to know them and hearing their stories makes me "richer" as a person, if that makes sense)) I travelled all over UK, as well as to Ireland, Paris and Bordeaux to document weddings. I fell in love with Paris, and you can see some of my personal photos Here. It's such a perfect place for photographing two people in love)) 
Also this year has seen my work being published and featured in some of the biggest UK wedding blogs and wedding magazines, including Cosmopolitan Bride, Perfect Wedding, Wedding Flowers, Love My Dress wedding blog, Rock My Wedding blog, Bijoux Bride wedding blog, Whimsical Wonderland Weddings, Eco Beautiful Weddings blog. I would like to thank everyone for choosing my images for features and articles. It's a real honour))
I feel like I'm doing a speech here :) My husband has been so supportive all this time. I wouldn't be where I am now without him. He puts up with my moods when I'm feeling down, and he has given me some of the best advice when it comes to weddings and my little business)) 
The huge Thank You goes to all my couples who I met and photographed in 2011. I'm very privileged to have been chosen to document one of the most important days in your lives, and all I hope for is for my images to bring back happy memories in years to come)) Here are a few of my favourite images from this year (in no particular order ;):

Well, hope you enjoyed that :-) 2011 has been an incredible year! I still have two beautiful weddings to photograph, which I'm really looking forward to! 2012 is shaping up to be a very busy year with lots of different weddings which take me all over the country! I'm really excited about what the new year has in store)) Wishing everyone very happy holidays! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Hope you are spending it surrounded by those who you love the most))

I've read today that it's only 12 days till Christmas! I am really excited! I love Christmas and celebrating New Year. It's always been a magical time of the year for me)) I'm looking forward to having some time off, seeing family, snuggling on the sofa in front of the fire, going for winter walks with our dog back in Ireland, visiting everyone, and just generally to all the festivities! :-) I'm also photographing a winter wedding in Dublin for a very special couple, so I'm looking forward to that too!
For now, I would like to share a few behind the scenes images from my last wedding, which I photographed at Gate Street Barn. I had my lovely friend Antonina Mamzenko helping me on the day, and she took some photos of me 'in action' :)

The last image on the right resulted in this photo:

After super sunny and warm Bordeaux vineyard wedding, I would like to get you all into Christmas spirit with this sneak peek! Lucy and Tony got married in a Gate Street Barn last Saturday, and their wedding was so festive, warm and cosy, and included a Christmas tree completed with real gifts underneath it! Here is a little preview, more to come in a few weeks ;) Have a good one!

I've been looking forward to sharing this beautiful French château wedding for a while! At the beginning of October I got a chance to travel to Bordeaux in France to photograph Jasmine and Adrian getting married. It was such an amazing experience and I loved every minute of it! They got married in a beautiful Château De La Ligne surrounded by vineyards, their family and friends. It was a very emotional day with lots of smiles and laughter, hugs and happy tears. And oh my, these guys know how to party! Almost everyone was on the dancefloor until the wee hours! Despite getting married abroad, Jasmine and Adrian incorporated both their cultures into their wedding and made it their own. It was fun and colourful, it was personal, and it was all about love and celebrating it with people who matter. Their families were so welcoming to us - we are really grateful! Here is a selection of photos from their beautiful wedding:

And this is where Jasmine and Adrian got married... Yeap... :) It was a 30 degrees heat outside, so they put lots of white brollies outside for guests to shelter from the sun during the ceremony. Ice cold lemonade was served to guests when they arrived. Nice touches)) 

Speeches were very emotional and heartfelt! And the whole reception feel was warm and cheery))

Jasmine and Adrian, thank you so much for having us as part of your big day! It was a real pleasure getting to know you and your families! I'm wishing you all the best in your new life together! Lots of love x
