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.

“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.
“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.
“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.
