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. And in 2018 we rocked worlds for the fourth time in a row. Now we’re back for OUR FIFTH BIRTHDAY EXTRAVAGANZA and plan to bring you the best Gathering yet in 2019 – are you ready?!
Gathering 2018 highlights coming soon. For now enjoy these highlights of last year’s Gathering… We’re almost sold out already for 2019, grab your ticket soon!
“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.

“Holy smokes batman! I’m not even sure my words can quite do justice for the NineDots gathering. It over-delivered on every level for me!! Inspirational? Yes indeed. Tangible ideas? You bet! Next level networking? errr, yeah!! Ping-Pong and one of the best parties you could imagine? HELL YEAH!!! The one downside? Having to wait a whole year for the next one!!”

2015 Official Photographers, 2016 Attendees, 2017 Presenters
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.

“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.”
