2013 … in a nup-shell! {One of my favourite photos from each wedding}

Oh . my . goodness … what a year 2013 has been!  That was hard work though – choosing just 1 photo from each of the weddings I’ve photographed this year.  I wanted it to be a photo I love and one that also said something about the couple to me.  Their fun side, their shy side, THAT look, THE kiss, snuggling, dancing…. we had it all this year and I’m pretty sure 2013 has been one of my best yet!!  28 weddings is no mean feat for a full time mum of 3 young boys, 29 if you count my own BIG day just a couple of weeks ago!  It’s far more than I ever dreamed of or thought I could cope with (!!) but I did it and I’m so very proud of myself for putting in the hours and the effort – I’ve loved every minute!  I’ve got some albums to design now, a wedding and a shoot to edit and a dreaded tax return (eugh!)…  2014 kicks off this Saturday with what’s set to be a fantastic winter wedding at The Tithe Barn so it’s all systems go.  I want to thank all my gorgeous couples for being so wonderful this year – for sharing their most special days with me and letting me capture it all for them. You’ve been fantastic!!  Also my peers in the industry – other photographers, bloggers, make up artists, cake makers, hair dressers, wedding planners, videographers, venue owners, stylists, florists – the list goes on! … I consider you all my “office” pals and my friends and your encouragement & support has been phenomenal this year.  Last but definitely not least I must thank Steve – my HUSBAND!!  It’s so amazing to be able to say that… he has stuck by me this year through thick and thin and really supported me and proved his love to me by marrying me.  It truly was the best day of our lives  🙂  🙂   I feel so happy, lucky and blessed…  I had to include a photo from our wedding day – so picture no 28 (2nd to last) was one of my favourites by my dear friend Kelly of Lola Rose Photography

HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone.  And if you get engaged or so know someone who has got engaged – send them my way!!  😉   Lots of Love…. Nicki (Lyall)! xx
