The Best Wedding Photographs of 2017


Being a wedding Photographer is great; I get to share in one of the happiest days of your life and take pictures in amazing locations. And this year I’ve seen it all, from beach excursions to walks in the woods, lighthouses and castles to the banks of the Lee.

The pictures you see here are a selection of my favourites from throughout the year. I have chosen these images for different reasons. Some were challenging to pull off. In some I used new tech (I’m looking at you drone). Some, I just love the composition or colours and some capture a magic moment in a single frame. A moment in time that sums up the day.

I hope you like the selection, feel free to comment below and if your curious about my availability for your wedding day, pop a few details in the form below and I will send you all the details.
