I don’t think there’s a man, woman or child alive who wouldn’t admit that 2016 has been a bit of a crazy year for planet earth. Usually at this point in a blog post I like to give a short summary of what I’m talking about, but with 2016, well I think we all know what has made it more challenging than previous years. But hey, you know me, I like to look on the brighter side of life.
2016 has been quite a massive year for everyone here at AK Expressions. We shot more weddings than ever before, filmed more weddings than ever before and more important we have made more new friends in 2016 than in any previous year.
It grieves me that 2016 will be remembered so negatively; for everyone who has gotten married this year 2016 will always be a positive year to remember. I’m not taking the events of 2016 lightly; I just want people to remember all the incredibly positive things that have happened this year.
It might be a sugar rush from too many mince pies, it could be that (thanks to Christmas over-indulgence) my bloodstream is now 40% red wine, but every couple who has gotten married this year has committed themselves to making the world a better place. Not just for themselves, but for everyone around them. There are around three quarters of a million babies born every year in the UK, and every single one of those children has the capacity and opportunity to change the world for the better.
Perhaps in these challenging times I’m not the only person looking forward to the future with a smile. If things get tough the only way we’re going to get by is by working together, broadening our horizons and making many new friends. These are all things I intend doing more of in 2017. Do you fancy joining me? Smell ya later 2016, 2017 here we come!
