We didn’t just want to create another wedding photography conference. We wanted to craft a unique experience and vibe in the UK for wedding photographers which was the perfect mix of inspiration, education, socialising and epic partying. We threw the first NineDots Gathering in November 2015 and people loved it. We made it bigger and better in 2016 and people loved it hard. We’ve made it longer and switched things up for 2017 – are you ready?!
With massive thanks to the amazing Thompson Granger Films for this film of the 2016 Gathering.

“Man, what to say about the awesome event that was the Gathering? Well, I knew it was gonna be fab – I was one of the first to snap up a ticket – but it exceeded my (already sky high) expectations by a mile. The speakers, yes – all totally inspiring.

“The Nine Dots gathering was one of the best experiences of my photography career! The whole gathering was incredible, the speakers were fantastic and inspiring and the parties truly epic. But what I loved most was the amazing community that was built through out the whole two days and beyond. I can not wait for next year!! bring it on.”

“These words are the honest truth, no hyperbole or exaggeration; go to the next 9D Gathering. Do it. It was the most fun and inspirational photography event I’ve been to. It had everything; inspirational speakers, fantastic attitudes and awesome attendees (and one of the best parties I’ve been to in my entire life). Seriously. Do it.”

“This summer has been my first crazy summer working as a freelance wedding photographer. I’d been so busy catching up with editing I’d almost forgotten about the 9 Dots gathering and so I approached it without much thought and with no expectations. What an inspirational slap in the face!! 9 Dots has not only inspired my work ethic but it’s changed my mindset & inspired my personal life too. All the speakers were sensational & so laid back & approachable.
