2014 may well have been the most intriguingly interwoven year that I’ve experienced as a wedding photographer, in certain respects coming to a conclusion where it started off and both revisiting and pre-visiting those start and end points along the way. At my first wedding of the year, on the Isle of Portland in Dorset – that of Matt & Cheryl – I was seated for dinner next to George & Will, who I’d never knowingly met before (I had, but I hadn’t). George recognised me as having been the photographer at Sarah & Ben’s wedding in London four years earlier. George and Ben had been friends since schooldays. Myself and Ben have in turn been friends for a decade and a half and counting. It seems that I conduct myself well at the dinner table as George & Will then went on to book me to photograph their London wedding, the last but one of my 2014 season. At George & Will’s wedding, I was seated for dinner between Sarah & Ben and Matt & Cheryl. Also at Matt & Cheryl’s wedding, jumping back to the start of my wedding year, were Paul & Kayleieh. Paul & Kayleieh had already booked me to photograph their wedding that would take place on the Isle of Purbeck somewhere around the middle of the year. At Paul & Kayleieh’s wedding I was seated for dinner next to Matt & Cheryl. I also met Ross, and in passing, Alice, at Paul & Kayleieh’s wedding. Ross is Paul’s brother and served as his best man. As I photographed the groomsmen getting ready Ross had mentioned to me that he would be getting married towards the end of the year and had it in mind that he wanted a photographer with a similar approach to mine. Who more similar to me, than me, I suppose? :~) So Ross & Alice went on to book me for their wedding in the West of Dorset in December of the year, my final wedding of 2014. The registrar officiating over their marriage ceremony was the same registrar whom had officiated over that of Matt & Cheryl. I’d not seen that registrar at any other weddings across the interim months.

Something of a Cat’s Cradle, if you will. My thumbs are still bound together with the enormity of it all.

Then in terms of other prior connections if not quite as deeply interwoven as those that topped, tailed and occasionally indexed 2014, there was the wedding of Jamie & Nicola (I knew them both from a back street pub of many years shared habituating), that of Felipe & Kathryn (I’d taught Felipe when he was a postgraduate student), those of Ruth & Neil and Nic & Curt (Ruth had delivered a reading at Sarah & Jon’s wedding in 2012; Nic had been one of Sarah’s bridesmaids) and Alex & Gemma too (Alex works with one of the groomsmen from Sarah & Jon’s wedding, thus discovering my work), Joanna & Ashley (guests at David & Mandy’s wedding the year before, Ashley had also served as one of the two ceremony officiants at their wedding), Alex & Julien (guests at Gabby & Gareth’s wedding in 2010) and Steph & Ryan (in a former professional incarnation, Steph had been the creator of beautiful wedding cakes, some of which I’d photographed). And even though there had been no solidly tangible prior connections in place, I was really happy to make new connections with Alice & Owain, Tory & Jon, Lucy & Ric, Anna & Tony, Sam & Neil, Ellen & Lee, Rachel & Tom, Toey & Amit, Angela & Jim, Mark & Katerina, Laura & Rob, Sadie & Paul and Sophie & Donald and look forward to seeing what connections in turn emanate from my having photographed their weddings.

I’ve had great fun along the way and far more significantly I’ve met and met anew a group of people that leave me filled with a sense of great warmth simply at the thought of their inhabiting the same world that I do. I wish a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year to all of them and to all of you, too.

This is some of what I saw in 2014…
