Wedding Photography

Stories engage you, embrace you, make you feel joyous and tearful. They are not told in one line but instead through a series of well written chapters. Likewise, your wedding album is a classic book, capturing many details and unique moments that come together to tell your unique wedding day through pictures.

Like great writers, great photographers love what they do and I am passionate about my role. My focus is always to take bright and colourful photos filled with natural emotions of happiness and fun, while letting you and your guests enjoy the day as much as possible.

2018 was my 10th year of photographing weddings and I am always honoured when a couple choose me to photograph their day. I enjoy helping each one to have the best day possible, both in the planning stages where I can advise based on my experiences, and on the day through helping to keep it run smoothly, while always wishing to go above and beyond.

I am proud to be a qualified Licentiate Member of the Society of Wedding Photographers and to have reached the Regional Finals of the Wedding Industry Awards in 2016, 2017 & 2018! Equally, it is heart warming to have received so many kind words from now married couples and a selection of these can be found on the ‘Reviews’ section of my Facebook page.

About Me

The Collection

I have created a Collection that brings together the modern day flexibility of digital images with the tradition of physical prints, so you can cherish your photos in both print and on screen! For, as I truly believe, ‘pictures should be printed and admired, not just seen on phones!’

The Collection includes all of the following,

Photography from three hours before your Ceremony to three hours after your First Dance. This will result in over 550 photos.

A Meeting at your Ceremony & Reception Venues to discuss your wedding in detail while having a good look around.

A copy of my Photography List to complete, so that on your wedding day I photograph all of the family photos, detail shots and any other special requests that you would like me to take.

High Resolution Digital Images of each of your photos, supplied on a USB within a personalised luxury box, so you can print and share your pictures.

A Sneak Peek Gallery of 120 edited photos, presented in an online gallery within a few days of your wedding, so you can relive the day while on honeymoon.

50 Thank you Cards featuring a photo of your choice on the front, with the option of purchasing additional cards.

Frame Ready Prints: A mounted 16 by 12 inch print and three mounted 10 by 8 inch prints of photos of your choice.

An Online Gallery & Printing Service, so your guests can view your photos and order their own professionally printed copies from me.
