Best of 2015: Moments

We’ve come to the end of our Best of 2015 series, and as of Monday, we have some super exciting things happening here on SBB. But first, I wanted to look back at some of the moments – the images that made me smile or laugh or just get that feeling of joy you feel when you witness the love and happiness of two people who belong together on the happiest day of their lives. Beyond the details and the dresses and the bouts and the bouquets, this is what really makes my job worthwhile. It’s the moments and the love stories, and sharing them with you every day. So here’s to more of these wonderful moments in 2016, and to all the talented photographers who capture them so beautifully.

Best of 2015: Showcase

Hello lovelies! Can you believe we’ve hit the last day of 2015? It’s been a funny old year for many people, I know, but as we look back at the year that was and look forward to the days to come (and break out the champers to celebrate both), I thought it was a good time to put together an album of beautiful images – images full of love and laughter and light, and everything that makes a wedding so extra specially beautiful. I put the word out with some of our photographer friends and asked them to pick a few of their own favourite pics, and they sent me such incredible ones, I was really spoilt for choice. But here’s a little collection – be sure to click through and see more of their work, because they’re all talented and wonderful! We’ll be back tomorrow sharing the last of our Best of 2015 posts, and then next week… well, exciting things are happening! But in the meantime, be safe and be happy this new year’s eve, and here’s to 2016 :)
