Where did 2017 go?

2017 was a total whirlwind. I still can't believe we're in 2018... but I've decided it's time I caught up!

Looking back over the people we met and the weddings we had the honour of documenting has just had me beaming for the last few hours. We get to be privy to so much - the (occasionally) chaotic process of getting ready, the flitting in and out of Mums and brothers and Bill from down the road and 19 year old Scooby the cat and Great Aunt Doris... the quiet setting in of nerves as the magnitude of the day sinks in, the rush of excited impatience upon approaching the ceremony, the deep sense of calm solidarity as you see your person at last, the utter elation as loved ones woop and hoot at the first kiss, then the giddy spiral of grins and squeezes and high fives and fizz and food and tears and laughter and falling over and getting up again to dance like never before. Real joy.

Thank you for letting us do what we love, for welcoming us in, filling us up and sending us home buzzing. You are all wonders. Here are some of your stories...
