Another year in weddings complete / by Daniel Bristow

And what a  year it has been! I would just like to take the chance to say thank you to everyone of my couples who have helped to make it a great year. 

Its been very busy with 22 weddings between April and November, often with two in the same weekend which always posed a challenge to keep up with. I would like to say I nailed it, and from the feedback you guys have given me I think I have. 

As usual theres been a large variety in the days I've covered, small intimate weddings with a relaxed atmosphere to larger and more traditional weddings where plenty is happening and the days are longer. Ive loved them all! I couldn't pick a favourite so don't ask! it would be an impossible task. 

Not much in the way of kit fatalities this year, apart from a  speed light and my 17-40 wide angle. Other than that everything survived the brutality that wedding shoots can provide to working kit. My 1dsii keeps going on like the tank it is. I did however lose Vera my Saab this year. A piston ring failed on the motorway to southampton on route  a wedding. But she still got me there on time and then got me home again, saving me from an arduous AA relay trip home. 

So its been a really fun year and it has been an incredibly busy and hard season. But heres to next year! and I hope it is as busy and fun.
