Weddings

ELEGANT, BEAUTIFUL AND TIMELESS

'A picture is worth a thousand words'

Never could this be more true than on your wedding day. Choosing your wedding photographer is a big decision, one of the most important. It is not an easy one to make these days, with so much choice out there. 

Your photographer plays a crucial role on your wedding day, capturing the moments to last a lifetime and beyond. They need to be respectful, adaptable, and be able to fit in with your family and guests on the day, putting them at ease. 

I LOVE weddings, and everything about them. My journey as a photographer over the last eight years, and even before that has led me to this genre. Previously I was a flower, and then fashion buyer for major international brands. My love of these subjects comes naturally through in my work. Over the years my style has developed into a light, dreamy and romantic 'fine art' look.

Immersing myself into these amazing, emotional events with high energy, enables me to capture all those precious memories for you. I want to see the tears, the joy, the hugs, and the laughter. My aim is to take natural photographs, that show each couples uniqueness in a beautiful and timeless manner. 

It is not just about capturing the traditntal moments, the vows, the first kiss, and the walk down the aisle (although these are important). Your images should show the story of your day as it unfolds.

As each wedding is unique, I encourage you to get in touch to have a chat to see whether I am the right photographer for you. A wedding photographer is an investment, and one well worth it. Your photos will be all that is left long after the cake has been eaten, and the music stops.

On Your Wedding Day

I'll be with you every step of the way.

 

On the day itself I shouldn't be a stranger. Usually I will have met you at least a couple of times, either to have our initial chat, or at a pre-wedding shoot. I will work calmly, and quietly around you, capturing images from the bridal prep throughout to the last dance. The story of your day should unfold in your images. 

We will have discussed the more formal portraits prior to the wedding, but these are no longer than twenty minutes, after the ceremony.

I understand that you want to get on and celebrate with your family and friends and that's what it's all about. The only time I may ask you to come outside again with me is if there is a beautiful sunset...it's nice to get a few minutes just to yourself and to help slow the day down.

Prior to your wedding day I will have discussed with you any concerns you have personally, and through careful posing and editing can minimise these. Please don't feel nervous, I have been asked everything before!

Wedding Photographers often talk about 'investment' rather than price and that is for a very good reason. A good photographer really is an investment.

 

Not only will I have done lots of prep work prior to your wedding day, the way that I manage your images after the day is all part of my service. Each photo is individually and sympathetically edited by me. I really pay attention to all the details, that hair out of place, someone's closed eyes, or a distracting object. The images I create for you are a work of art, not just a 'snap'. 

 

You will receive your full, edited gallery within 2-3 weeks after the wedding, hopefully in time for your return from your honeymoon. I will also send you a few sneak peeks 24 hours after the day, just so you can show your friends and family - I know how desperate they are to see them. 

Once you have seen your gallery, I can show you the full range of products available from Albums to Wall Art. Whatever your budget there is something to suit everyone. I keep your photos safe indefinitely, so if you ever want to return at a later date to buy a product they are available.
