My Favourites – 2021 Wedding Photography

Best of 2021 Surrey Wedding Photography Sophie Duckworth Photography

“Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;” – Henry V – Shakespeare

Dramatic, I know, but hasn’t life been this way of late? Here I sit, having chosen my 2021 favourites of wedding photography, in the early days of 2022 and I’ve definitely reached an age when I have to stop and think what day it is, let alone what year I’m in. 2021 flew by, it truly did, it was a flash of mixed emotions, endless admin, anxiety and weddings. It was the year I became a mother after much longing and quite a bit of heartache. It was possibly the least ideal time to give birth, the height of Summer, when all restrictions were lifted, and full celebrations were once again allowed.

The huge shift of weddings, last minute in Spring, absolutely floored me. I had no dates left, and I had dates I would need to find others for, as I was going to become a mother. Alongside that excitement, came the worry, as I didn’t want to jinx my pregnancy and I didn’t want to let anyone down. Someone reminded me that I mustn’t set myself on fire to keep others warm, but it wasn’t a time that sat comfortably with me and it was only down to the absolutely wonderful couples who treated me with such kindness that I got through it. I lost 12 weddings. Some I had to find replacements for, and others wanted dates that simply weren’t there. It seemed liked 2020 all over again.

Yet there was hope…

I started my wedding season at the beginning of my third trimester, and I shot 11 weddings before my son came along. I was less ‘ninja-like’ and far more ‘blob-worthy’ but amazingly the minute I started each day, adrenaline kicked in and I loved every moment. Three and a half weeks after his birth I went back to work and finished my year a week before Christmas, capping at 16 weddings. It was a lean year for me, but SUCH a good one.

The photos below are as ever, a collection of images that I loved the most. They aren’t ‘the best’, they aren’t ‘typical wedding photos’ – instead they are what brings me joy when I look back at the year. I spend HOURS choosing these. When I blog a wedding I try to show the story of the day, and give an example of my approach so future couples know how I work. These posts are a bit more vulnerable, I willingly leave images in that may not be everyone’s idea of a good photo, but it’s important to me to try to get across the essence of what I look for when I come to a wedding. Moments, beautiful light and the odd ‘hero’ shot. If the photos I choose don’t fall into these three categories then I know I need to be tougher.

My 2021 favourites of wedding photography

So, back to the weddings. The BEST couples. Truly so, I have made firm friends with many of my 2021 couples, some are having part two this year, and I can’t wait to see them again. Possibly the only thing I can thank covid for; the fact I’ve been blessed to work with some couples more than once. Venues amongst firm favourites, Loseley Park, Millbridge Court and some newfound spots, one being Grittenham Barn, what a place! My brides as ever, looked stunning with many using the fabulous Miss Bush, (highly recommend!) and having their looks completed by uber superstars, Sharon Roberts Hair and lovely Olivia Mills (check them both out if you’re looking for hair and make up!).

If you’ve got this far, then thank you, and please forgive me, baby brain has well and truly taken hold, and I can no longer rely on my literary mind to express just how grateful I am to still call this my job. Ten years, for some reason I’m still here, and 2022 looks ruddy wonderful.

So covid, you’ve been, shown your face, messed around with lives and caused rather a kerfuffle, it’s time to move on. Let weddings be weddings, allow the hugs to feel tighter, see masks be left to Halloween, and bring on heaving dance floors and mad shape-throwing once more. The biggest thank you to all my couples, my husband for coping with an hormonal, exhausted wife, my family for letting me endlessly worry and my friends for listening. 195 frames to remind me how lucky I am…x

Bex & Alex – Gate Street Barn Wedding

“The photos are just beautiful and you really captured the laid back feel of the day. We cannot wait to share them with our family and friends…We loved every moment of our wedding and have greatly enjoyed looking through the photos. I cried at how beautiful they are so I guess that says it all!”

Gate Street Barn Wedding

Well this was a delight! Revisiting weddings I simply never had time to blog, it has been a total joy to look over Bex and Alex’s Gate Street Barn wedding once more. It was back in the Summer of 2018, and it was a special weekend for me, since I got engaged the very next day! But that’s not the reason this wedding stands out for me. Instead, it was one where I met two absolutely lovely people and their families. Speaking with Bex’s Dad about Leica cameras during the booking process certainly had me a little anxious, I was being judged by a semi-pro! (I still don’t own a Leica, which makes me very sad indeed!)

Beginning the day at the pub across the road from their church, Holy Trinity in Bramley, was an unusual but super fun place to start. Lots of excitement and happy faces and a side of a wedding day I don’t usually get to witness. Thankfully everyone kept the drinking to sensible levels, and soon arrived Bex in THE most wonderful car, Primrose. This stunning Rolls R0yce was the very car David Jason drove in The Darling Buds of May – just a bit cool eh?!

The ceremony was upbeat and beautiful, sadly I was not able to photograph from the front but it needn’t have mattered, there was plenty more to capture at the wonderful Gate Street Barn later. After a sun-filled confetti launch, everyone headed round the corner to the Barns. Looking over the photos something became clear to me, I have REALLY missed getting closer to people since Covid hit. I don’t like to be too ‘in your face’ but getting those moments really helps when you can get that bit nearer. I was spoilt for choice during the reception, all their guests were having a fab time and I think it’s clear to see! Of course like any Gate Street Barn wedding, it looked glorious but let’s not forget to mention one of my favourite (and recommended) florists, Gill Pike, for her incredible work!

Onto speeches, a great mix of heartfelt and hilarious, all three were wonderful, especially the Best Man’s, Omar, who was equally as close to Bex as he is to Alex, which was lovely to see. They were absolutely ready to party but not before I dragged Bex and Alex off for a little walk to capture the last of the August sunshine. I really love having that extra couple session in the evening of a wedding, totally worth doing whatever season, before the madness of the dance-floor kicks in!

If you’re still here reading – well done, I can’t half waffle on! But I hope you have enjoyed this little story, of two super lovely and made-for-one-another people. I was lucky enough to capture them once more last Summer with their beautiful daughter, it was so great to catch up and reminisce! Keep in touch B&A, it was lovely to revisit your day, thank you for being so lovely to work with, and thanks to Jonathan, for being the most brilliantly fun Father of the bride ever – (Even if you did miss the bouquet!) :)

Amy & Jack – Millbridge Court

Summer at Millbridge

I can never get enough of weddings at Millbridge Court. It seems to carry its own micro climate, I’ve shot there in all seasons, and without fail, the reception falls outdoors, and makes my job very easy indeed :) At the peak of a very busy Summer, came Amy and Jack’s big day. And big it was!

The widest smiles swept across their faces ALL day. It was a wedding worth waiting for (Thanks Covid, still looking at many, many postponed weddings to come), and a special one indeed. Amy looked utterly STUNNING, in a dress that seemed as though it was made only for her. Emotions ran high all day, especially from her dear little sister, who bless her, cried throughout the morning in pure excitement, love and nerves.

The guests were, as ever, a massive laugh, I swear a certain type of clientele book Millbridge Court, as it always attracts the most fun loving, upbeat and incredibly loving people. This wedding was no exception and I fell for Amy and Jack big time during their special day. A few previews from their day can be seen below, what a vibe, love these two so much. Thank you Amy and Jack for having me and my lovely second shooter, Emmie, along for the ride. LOVED IT!

Sara & Marc – The Long Barn

Marc Sara Hampshire Barn Wedding Sophie Duckworth Photography

Autumnal Barn Wedding

I couldn’t resist blogging this beautiful Autumnal barn wedding even though I haven’t even finished editing it yet! Sara and Marc were finally married on what was a day of all weathers. We saw the sun creep out once or twice, we were promised clouds, we were given spitting rain showers (the annoying kind), however the day came to a close with a beautiful sunset which I am so glad we caught.

It was a year later than originally planned, but it was truly wonderful. Sara and her team had a fun and chilled morning getting ready in a local B&B near to their reception venue, The Long Barn in Alton. This was my second wedding here, and very sadly it looks like it will be the last, as this wedding was the venue’s final one before it closed. Covid has a lot to answer for, and losing beautiful gems such as this as a result is pretty hard to accept. With this in mind, we were determined to make it a special one and it absolutely was!

We travelled a little way to the most beautiful church, St John The Evangelist in Northington for the ceremony. Wow, what a stunning building. It had that incredibly special feel about it, and the most stunning light inside. If anyone knows me and my work, I am a total sucker for painterly light. One day I will try and capture a whole wedding whereby each image looks like a classic Renaissance painting. I am sure there is one couple out there who’d want that?! :) Anyway…it meant I had plenty of gorgeous pockets of light to find and hopefully create some beautiful timeless images. Marc & Sara’s guests were just the loveliest, and a long enthusiastic line of confetti greeted the newlyweds as we exited.

The couple headed off to The Long Barn in a beautiful classic Rolls, as the rest of us travelled ahead to make the most of the garden games before the rain began. Thankfully it was never a downpour and certainly didn’t dampen any spirits. A major highlight of the day was when Mabel, the couples Airedale Terrier joined us for a few photos…cue one very happy photographer – and oh my word the flower collar that was made specially was just too much!

After a lovely reception came the wonderful meal and some brilliant speeches by Sara’s lovely Dad, Jimmy, Marc’s brother and Best Man, Phil (or Philip when their Mum is around :)) and of course the man himself, Marc. I absolutely LOVE shooting speeches, there are so many wonderful emotions and moments and I really struggle not to post 100 when I blog weddings. There are so many lovely moments to come Sara & Marc but I do hope you love these few previews for now. Thank you for trusting me, and also well done for nailing a brilliant first dance! I can’t wait to edit the full set but here are some personal favourites from the day…x
