2016. What a year it’s been.
For many of us, the last 12 months have been a struggle, from politics close to home, to crises around the world, the loss of great people, and events that have brought us to tears.
We hope we’ve been an escape from all that.
Because for lots of us, the year 2016 won’t go down in our personal history books as a bad one. It’s the year we got married or engaged, the year we attended our best friend’s wedding or took that amazing trip. For us, it was the year we launched our shiny new site and took part in an important viral campaign.
And we’re all about relishing the good things in life (and not feeling guilty about it).
So this year, our Christmas wish for all our wonderful readers and talented contributors is to take joy in celebrating, whether it’s big things like weddings or little things, like baking that cake you pinned on Pinterest two years ago.
And with that in mind, our final shoot of the year is a pretty special one. A winter wedding inspiration shoot that doubles up as a life lesson, about appreciating the small things, indulging in home comforts, and spending time with the people who matter most.
Photographed by Sam Gibson Weddings and designed and styled by Kirsten Butler, aka The Little Wedding Helper (and featuring a hot chocolate bar!) this one (and the video by McGill Sister Films to go with it) has given us a serious case of the warm, fuzzy, Christmassy vibes. And we reckon it’ll do the same for you.
