I was never one of those girls who sat endlessly planning my perfect wedding day, pouring my heart over wedding gowns in magazines or thinking about the gorgeous, funny man I was going to marry when I was little, let's just say I didn't make my barbies walk down the aisle. I never really understood the importance or even the value of marriage and sometimes to this day I still really don't. However I do totally and utterly believe in love.

Perhaps you're the same as me and you've found the man that you really, really love, maybe he's your best friend and the idea of getting married and spending the rest of your life with him excites you more than it scares you. It seems to you that dedicating one day in your future to celebrate your love of one another and commitment to each other with witness of your friends and family might be the best idea you've ever had! Why would you not want to have that party in a warehouse in celebration of your love?!

If this sounds like you then we've already got a lot in common!

You're planning the details of a wedding that is personal to you both, in a stunning and intimate but still super rustic industrial, bohemian or city venue. You're thinking of the vows you want to say to each other up there in front of your loved ones and laughing about whose going to make who cry first (no but seriously it's going to be me!) Most importantly I believe though is that you're planning on someone being there to capture all of it, which is where I come in...

Like I said before I never thought I would be into weddings and I certainly never thought I would love photographing them. As it turns out after being invited to shoot a friends wedding day in 2014, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! Weddings are diverse in culture and personality just like the couples who plan them and it's through this that I keep on learning. It is a pleasure and an honour to be invited to record such happy memories for you and I take enormous pride in providing you with beautiful imagery of the day. 

I know you're worried about whats going to happen if it rains on the day, whether your guests are going to get along or whether you're going to look good in your photographs but at the end of the day as long as you're happy, that is all that matters! With my on hand help through your planning process and guidance on your wedding photography theres honestly nothing to worry about! I can assure you you're going to look gorgeous, your Uncle Jim will try not to embarrass you and as for the rain, I can't stop that but I can be on hand with umbrellas and positivity!

I want to tell your story through beautiful images (& the odd video) of your day for you to treasure forever. I would describe my style of wedding photography as relaxed, honest and candid. I will capture everything throughout the day from the prepping process (because we girls know it's almost as fun as the actual event) all the way up until the inebriated dance party if you want! I shoot with a contemporary, documentary approach; I like to be as discreet as I can until you need me to take charge of organising your wedding party.

My wedding photography packages start at £950! They come in a range of shapes and sizes and can be altered to suit you!
