Alex & Ben's Wedding at Trinity Buoy Wharf, London by This Modern Love

Alex & Ben - Trinity Buoy Wharf Wedding Photographer

Alex and Ben are rough collie people. That means they're our kinda people! From the first email, we knew this day was going to rock.

And it really did rock. One of those weddings where the stars align - kindred spirits, amazing location, rain and sun and a beautiful tumble of humans celebrating life. What a privilege to be there.

Lais & Patrick's Elopement at Glenveagh Castle and National Park, Donegal

Woven around a Tom Petty lyric 'You belong among the Wildflowers', Lais and Patrick's elopement was one of a kind. Two little dogs, a ceremony by the lake, the lend of Glenveagh National Park and a big old stack of vinyl... what more could you want? Maybe a pint. So they had that too... 

Shout out to awesome partner in crime Ricky, from Rabbit and the Fox Films, whose signature is scrawled alongside mine on the marriage register :)

2017 / Amazing Human Beings / Mostly Getting Married by This Modern Love

2017! It feels like this is the first year we’ve been able to catch our breath in a long time. Kids a little older, house built, grass growing, books being read...

Weddings have become part of the cycle of our life. They define our seasons. New beginnings in spring, hard graft in summer and autumn, hibernation in winter, until the anticipation builds again... 

There are only so many sweetie tables a man can raid. And as ever, the heart of this work for us is never the stuff (although you guys have some really amazing stuff). But it’s you human beings getting married. Watching your amazing families and friends hold you up. Being a small part of the cycle of your lives. It never stops being a privilege.

So here are some moments from 2017. About 100 of them anyway. Thanks for taking time out to have a look. Hope you enjoy :)

Ps. A note for any fellow camera nerds - 2017 was a year of trying to simplify camera gear as well as life. Apart from the few film snaps, I ended up shooting most of the year on two lenses - a Nikon 28mm and 58mm.
