"When I saw you I fell in love and you smiled because you knew." William Shakespeare
I love weddings. Each and every one is special and they're one of the most incredible days of your life! The photography should capture the spirit of the day; the secret smiles that are exchanged, the whispered 'I love you's' into just married ears and the holding of hands that silently connect the two of you when you're surrounded by and being congratulated by a thronging crowd........
I normally like to meet up with the bride and groom before your wedding so that we can have a chat and you can talk to me about what kind of photos you might like and I can suggest some ideas if you're not sure. For instance, if you're getting married near the coast, you might want a selection of images on the beach (or in the sea if you're feeling brave!), specific family photos or they might be special little touches on the day that you'd like to be photographed.
I generally favour a natural, candid and unobtrusive style, however it's sometimes nice to have a number of semi posed photos, including the bride and groom too. This usually means a walk away for a few minutes away from your guests, which also allows some time for just the two of you to relax and enjoy each others company whilst I take some beautiful photographs of you both.
After the wedding, your photos are individually edited and put into your password protected online gallery for you and your guests to view and order copies if they wish.
If you'd like to have a chat or arrange a meeting to discuss what options are available, please call me on 0776 233 6222 or email me at [email protected]

"He's more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same." Emily Bronte
o I'm fully insured and shoot with Canon and Elinchrom professional equipment.
o If you'd like something different, for example if you're having a small wedding and only need a photographer for a couple of hours, please contact me and I'll be happy to provide a tailored quote.
o I ask for a 25% fee to secure the date, with the balance payable 30 days before the wedding
o I'll normally meet with you at my studio for a relaxed chat about your day, what you'd like and how I can help over coffee and a cheeky cake or two! You don't have to decide there and then if you'd like to book, however if you decide to go ahead, I'll send you contract with all of the details for you to sign, which secures the date.
"Two souls but with a single thought. Two hearts that beat as one." John Keats
"A soulmate is a meeting of mind, spirit and body with someone whose strengths, flaws and energy perfectly compliment your own. It is steady ground. A shelter in a storm. A point on a map when you are wayward and lost. The promise of a place to come home to for as long as you are here in the world." Beau Taplin
"In all the world there is no heart for me like yours. In all the world there is no love for me like yours." Maya Angelou.
"I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all of the ages of this world alone...." Arwen, The Fellowship of the Ring.
