YES June is considered 'peak' wedding season, YES it normally is one of my busiest months and YES I just went on holiday for 10 days in June.
Late last year after looking at my calendar I decided to block out some time at the beginning of June for some time out and I booked a family holiday to the South of France. Madness maybe, I could have shot about 5 weddings within this time... this would have a major impact financially but I think I somehow knew that come June I'd be in need of a break.
My wedding season started a lot earlier this year and I shot weddings in January and February (I'm lucky enough to be able to usually take these months off) but in order to spread out my work load this year and not cram a load of weddings in during wedding season only... oh and to allow me to have some sort of life during the summer I decided to spread my bookings out a bit.
I'm a glad I did... I just spent 10 glorious days with my little family doing nothing but eating, drinking, cycling, sunning myself, walking barefoot and being immersed in water for hours on end with my little one at the pool.
Here's a little taste of one of our best family holidays to date...
