So here’s my 2017 look back!
I won’t write loads here as I think the photos do the talking but it’s safe to say it was a brilliant year and one I will always remember fondly. Aside from getting to shoot in Santorini and Mexico (my furthest location to-date – thank you again Steph and Nick!!) it was a year of amazing wedding after amazing wedding! I met so many awesome people, witnessed so much love, heard the most incredible speeches (that made me laugh and cry in equal measure!!) and most of all I got to work with such a mighty fine set of couples who entrusted me with their wedding photos! I’m so grateful for each and every one of them and now it’s winter, and wedding season is over, I miss them all very much!
In the Autumn I was shortlisted for the finals of the National Wedding Industry Awards. These awards are based on actual feedback from those who have had me shoot their wedding.
I received full marks in half of the categories and 9.98/10 for the rest so I will take that as a pretty good good result!
I was blown away by some of the comments so I thought I’d share a few here!
“Jonny MP is a legend! When I asked my friend what she would’ve done differently about her wedding, she said she would’ve booked Jonny MP! So I contacted him, loved the sound of his ideas and ethos – & even changed the initial wedding date we had pencilled in so we could book him. We didn’t regret it – Jonny was fantastic, he fitted in with the wedding party & got to know everyone, my family actually wanted to adopt him! He caught some amazing moments and really captured the joy of the day.”

” Jonny was fantastic!! His presence on the day was perfect, he felt like a member of the family and close friend, knowing all the bridal party and close friends by name and making everyone feel special. He got to know us before the event making us feel relaxed. His eye for capturing light, emotion and moments is outstanding. Jonny has a fantastic eye for detail and a talent capturing photographs that are imaginative, different and unique in such a beautiful and personal style.”
Rachel & Darren, August 2017
” Jonny was an absolute privilege to have as part of our wedding, although he came for his job, by the end of the evening he became more of a member of the party. Absolutely outstanding service from beginning to end, he made us feel comfortable and confident from the first to last photo he took. He is not only an unbelievable photographer, whose ability to capture every single moment is spot on and remarkable, but a genuine and professional man, who myself and Chris, family and friends adore!”
Emma & Chris, October 2017
“We can honestly say Jonny was one of the biggest parts of our day. From the minute he arrived, he was so well rehearsed and professional he knew all of my bridesmaids names, both mine and my husbands family too and other important guests. He is very friendly and laid back but captures the most incredibly photos that we will treasure forever. The quality of them are stunning, many people have told me they’re the best wedding photos they’ve ever seen. Would recommend him to everyone!”
