    27 Nov 2020
    I think it’s fair to say that 2020 hasn’t quite been the year we were all hoping for. During the first lockdown we were all stuck at home and I personally found myself with a lot more time on my hands. I decided to start shooting some photographs on film…

    Steph and Andy were married at the beginning of February 2020, at the stunning Healey Barn. Their wedding date was a super rare palindrome (the first one in over 900 years!). Sunday 2nd February 2020 or 02/02/2020 reads the same backwards, as it does forwards. It also means Andy shouldn’t…
