Best of 2019 UK Wedding Photographer
2019 has been an amazing year! 110,000 images taken, 14,339 images sent to clients, 5,650 miles travelled, 66 canapés eaten (I think?!) 24 amazing couples to work for and 2 first looks!
I never pose people on their wedding days, I capture the real stuff; the tears, the belly laughs and the bear hugs. This never feels like a job to me, it always feels like a creative passion that I get to call my “work”. In 2019 I photographed a wedding in the hills of Tuscany during the European heatwave(!), I was a Chauffeur when a Bride & Groom’s wedding car never showed up (thanks Milky- my electric car) and fragments of a clay pot flew past my head at high speed during a Turkish dance! I’ll never forget the Chinese pre wedding games involving Groomsmen and a banana in Rome and when two umbrellas broke on me in the space of 5 minutes during a storm on a wedding morning.
2019 has been a significant year for me too. I photographed my 250th wedding and I celebrated my 10 year anniversary to Kirsty. We spent a weekend in London together and loved it. A huge thanks to everyone who’s entrusted me with their wedding day, liked and shared my work and recommended me this year. As a small business I couldn’t do this without you. Thanks Tom James for making the original soundtrack to this highlights video too. 2020 is looking good with my first Marathon to run in April and then weddings to photograph in Portugal and Germany! So here it is- my Best of 2019….
Olly is an incredible man who also happens to be an incredible photographer. He never felt intrusive yet captured some beautiful close up shots, he was always calm and relaxed which meant that our photos as a couple resembled this, and he made us feel very at home in his presence. Ash & Steph
You make it seem like you’re there at the wedding as a guest, not a business. Only a couple of minutes after Dave proposed I realised it meant that I got to have you taking our wedding photos! We cried at the slideshow and love all the pictures! Dave & Katie
We found Olly by chance as he had photographed our venue before and all we can say is that it was the best discovery we’ve ever made! I don’t think I have enough words to fully explain the feelings we had when we saw our photos and it’s impossible to pick a favourite! Matt & Holly
When Mike popped the question I knew that there was only ever going to be one person for the job, the brilliant Olly Knight. Olly is an unbelievable human being, he’s everything you would ever wish for in a Photographer and a human, he’s genuine and passionate with such a kind presence about him. Our photos are breathtaking, the day was captured beautifully, I can’t wait to spam every wall in our house with the prints. Mike & Lucy
What and absolute legend..! The nicest man you could ever meet. We love this man and would have invited him to the wedding anyway..!! We are so glad we chose him, he has shown us nothing but care, respect and kindness, putting us at ease from the outset. We received our pictures on our return from honeymoon and were blown away, they are better than we could ever have imagined. Paul & Sarah-Lou
He was instantly like part of the family, spent time chatting with our guests, laughing with us, whilst ensuring he captured the most magical shots of our wedding day. The photos have me crying my eyes out every time, they are just absolutely perfect! Ollie & Maxine
Olly, we knew you’d take the most beautiful photos. What we couldn’t know was how incredible you’d be on the day itself: you were there to capture our most intimate moments without making your presence felt, while at the same time being this amazing, calming, excited and excitable presence. You were the biggest hit with our friends and family — and we feel incredibly blessed that we found you. We can’t thank you enough! Chris & Alexa
We feel so unbelievably lucky to have had *actual* Olly Knight as our wedding photographer and implore any couple planning their wedding to make an enquiry and check out his work. You won’t regret it. Ian & Olivia
Not only is he a talented artist and captured moments that warmed our hearts, Olly is the kindest, generous and sweetest guy. He actually feels like a best friend. Everyone loved him and he was SO easy to be around and made us feel incredibly comfortable. Michael & Sevda
It really was like having one of our good friends at our wedding, who just so happened to be awesome at photography!! We got home from honeymoon at last night and said to ourselves that we would just watch the slideshow and then go to bed. Well, we watched the slideshow 3 times and the photos twice!! We love them so so so much!! Every photo we looked at I said, “this is one of my favourite ones” lol!! George & Harry
