2020



Amy Bennett Photography

At the end of every year, I always do a ‘best of the year’ blog post - a collection of my highlights from the year. It would have been easy to just ignore doing a 2020 ‘highlights’ as let's face it, 2020 hasn’t been the year we all thought it was going to be. A year that was meant to be my busiest yet with a record number of weddings to photograph actually turned out to be fewer weddings than in my first full year! But rather than dwell on 2020 being pretty much a write-off, I realised it’s actually important to look back and see how far I’ve come. I should be proud of all that I HAVE managed to do this year and all the obstacles I’ve overcome.

I’m not going to lie, there was a time when I thought my ‘2020 highlights’ might look a little bit like this...


However, I was pleasantly surprised to see just how much I have to share and include in this blog post! I have photographed some amazing micro weddings, couples, bumps and even a newborn! Here is my 2020...

Weddings

Weddings might look a little bit different right now... but love is not cancelled! Proved by the couples that got married this despite 2020 throwing everything in its power to stop them! I feel so honoured to have been a part of these couples wedding days. Every small wedding ceremony I have done this year has felt like a big moment in history captured. One day these strange times will all just be a memory... something we sit down and tell the grandkids. I like to think the photos I’ve taken will be pulled out and families will sit around looking through them, talking all about their 2020 wedding. That time when not even a global pandemic stopped them from getting married.

I want to send love to all the couples that should have been getting married this year. I know so many of you have had to postpone, some more than once! This won't be forever and you will marry your love soon! And to my wonderful friends Hannah & John and Rachael & Tom - I have everything crossed for you that you won’t both have to postpone your weddings again next year. I can’t wait to celebrate with you whenever the time comes. I'll be keeping the cameras at home and partying hard with you!

This year has been so hard on the wedding industry, but I know we will get through it and will one day be having wedding celebrations like we once knew them. Thank you to all the couples that have been so kind to their suppliers during this crazy year! Your support means the world.
