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 made it longer and switched things up for 2017. In 2018 we rocked worlds for the fourth time in a row, and in 2019 we celebrated five years and the most amazing ride. Now it’s time to talk about SIX baby!
We’d love you to join us at Gathering 2020, grab your ticket soon!

Last year we were asked by some of our industry friends to photograph something just a little bit different in the form of the inaugural Nine Dots Gathering in London. Having never attended anything like this before we were curious to see how we would find it and, of course, we were looking forward to the challenge of capturing the event.
“The choice of speakers was great and it was fascinating to see the different avenues they took to get to where they are. The choice of venue with the ping pong was inspired and I did not think originally that it would have that effect. I met many people by being asked or asking them to play or joining in. It also brought a very fun element, joviality and sometimes competitiveness.

“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.”
“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.”
