I know I know…Its been ages since I last updated this blog.
However, you’ll be pleased to know I’ve not been lazy. Last year was pretty epic for me. I shot over 40 weddings (my busiest year to date). Every weekend I was either at a wedding or doing engagement shoots all across the UK & abroad. I loved it, although I was pretty tired by Christmas.
Some of the highlights for me was seeing my work published. Brides Magazine recently featured a wedding I shot in France last August.
Some of the best wedding blogs on this planet such as Rock N Roll Bride and 100 Layer Cake also featured some of my weddings.
As great as all this was, in the back of my mind; I often wondered why there wasn’t a really cool Welsh Wedding blog. One that showcased the best Wales has to offer Brides & Grooms. A place for couples to get inspiration from local suppliers and have local B&G’s sharing their advice as well as sharing their wedding albums! So, I also started putting into motion the wheels of an idea i’d been working on for the past 2 years.
I asked a few of my brides from last year if they’d like to get involved, as well as a bride-to-be who’s wedding i’m photographing later this year. Each of them said yes without hesitation (which made me feel like this wasn’t such a crazy idea). So, on the 14th February this year I launched Cwtch the Bride and you can read the very first post (by me) here.
Its hard to put into words how chuffed I am about the success of Cwtch the Bride. Its only been live for just over two months and its had over 24,000 views already! Its Facebook page has over 1,500 followers too. AMAZING!
The success of it is not just down to me. Its the team of girls; my brides that have all been working hard on writing posts. So i’d personally like to thank Sarah, Sophie, Charlie & Hannah. All of which have been incredible!
Having spent the last few months working hard on getting Cwtch the Bride up and running I’m now looking forward to the year ahead. I’ve got just over 30 weddings this year (with space for a few more!), I’m also now booking into 2014 & 2015. Do email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like more information on my photography costs.
My photography website is currently undergoing a massive update (i know i know its been a long time coming). There are some incredible weddings, portraits and even personal projects all waiting to be showcased. The site is currently with the developers and I’m hoping it’ll be ready in the next few weeks (eek!)
In the meantime, here’s a sneaky peek at a wedding not yet featured anywhere. Its the lovely Jess & Dan.
