42 Weddings in 2015

Quite simply, amazing, I’m totally blown away. 42 Weddings in 2015. Really doesn’t matter how many times I say it or read it, but it just seem possible that I really did that many, but I did. I started out on this weddings journey just a few years back, four and a bit to be fairly correct, but I honestly thought it would take a long time to be getting anywhere near that number in a single year. It would take time, hard work, lots of advertising, plenty of happy …

How Did I Get 42 Weddings Booked This Year?

It was four years ago that I stumbled my way in to shooting my cousins wedding. It was the usual story that a lot of full time wedding photographers would cringe at, that, as someone with no experience of shooting weddings, I shouldn’t even be entertaining the thought of attempting a wedding, even one that was for a family member, but I did.

This time at the very prestigious Stanhill Court Hotel near Gatwick. I've kinda lost count of the fairs we've done over the past few years but for me it must be somewhere …

Another year done, and this one held yet more steps forward in terms of business progression, along with the number of weddings and portraits shot and thankfully the number of happy customers has grown as well.   My 2014 started quite slowly with only one wedding for January and rather sadly it cancelled with only a few weeks to go before the big day, so that was a bit of a downer, so my first actual wedding shoot happened on the most romantic day of the year.

Triple Wedding Weekend

Dominic Dorey Bride/Groom Portraits, Weddings Leave a Comment

Well it was bound to happen sooner or later but I have just had my first triple wedding weekend. I have done a fair few back to back weddings over the past three or so years but never three on the bounce. I have to admit I was slightly concerned my feet and legs would object, and the heels of my feet were very sore by the end of it, but I managed it just fine and covered each wedding like I would with any other. The three weddings started …
