Such a fantastic photographer to work alongside!
As a fellow wedding supplier it is lovely to work alongside nice and friendly photographers! Carol is fab and truly professional. She goes about her business without any disruption and always manages to be in the right place at the right time! As a DJ I always think it is nice to have your photographer get some dancefloor shots. Carol is always willing to capture the party too!

Amazing
My weddin day was quite simply the happiest day of my life and since receiving the photos from Carol, my new husband and I can relive our day over and over again. We are absolutely thrilled with all that Carol has done for us. Neither of us are particularly fond of being infront of the camera but we felt at ease and in good hands. We would recommend Carol to anyone.

Hands down the best decision we made for our wedding!
We would highly recommend Carol, she is unflappable even when others around her are losing their heads. She lets you know exactly what she is going to do and when she is going to do it. We printed off a timetable of the day and she managed to fit all of the photographs we had requested around that, plus way way more. We have had so may compliments on the photos and a lot of people wanting to get copies of their own. She is so friendly that we felt at ease straight away with her. Her photography style is very easy to follow and she didn't make us stand in any awkward poses or do anything we weren't comfortable with. The photos are timeless. She always kept to schedule and was flexible enough to work in close proximity to the videographer and still manage to avoid getting him in any shot. We were incredibly impressed with her work and loved having her there on the day. She is hands down the best decision we made for our wedding!

Very professional and efficient from start to finish
Carol is a very good photographer who captured some great shots of our wedding day. We found her to be very professional and efficient from start to finish. She was willing to do a pre-wedding photoshot which really helped as we aren't usually comfortable with having our photos taken and this allowed us to relax for the big day. She is also very good at taking ‘natural' shots which is a photo style I personally prefer. We will always treasure our photos from her. Thank you so much. Nikki and Ben :)

Highly recommended
Carol was great in every way. We loved her style - our photos are simple yet sophisticated, and classic but modern at the same time. We wanted beautiful photos to elegantly tell the story of the day, and that's what we got. Our more formal and posed shots are wonderful, but she is also a pro at capturing all those many candid and natural moments of our guests having a good time. She was also so relaxed and down to earth, which made us feel relaxed - a huge help! Highly recommended.

A complete professional
Carol photographed our wedding at Cogges Manor farm back in June and she really made it a perfect day. She catered to our day in the way we wanted it to be. She remained so calm throughout the day which I think is really important, and was a complete professional. We loved the photos that we received and were exactly what we were looking for from our day.

FAQ
(10)

What is your most memorable wedding?

A beautiful barn wedding, with a relaxed vibe and gorgeous sunshine.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Classical, timeless, natural, relaxed, informal.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Customer service from start to end, and photos with a timeless feel which can be treasured forever.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Don't get caught up in the details, let your photographer capture the atmosphere of your day rather than lots of group and detail shots.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Grandpa doing the bride's hair

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I'm happy to meet with you before you choose your photographer, either at a wedding fair or for a coffee - its important to get along as we will spend a lot of time together! If you would like a pre-wedding shoot we can arrange that for a month or so before the wedding. On the day I will blend in and capture lots of different moments, and your gallery will be ready once your photos are beautifully processed.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

Portraits after the ceremony are important - you can spend some time alone together whilst I capture that "just married" feeling. The portraits don't need to be staged or posed, I capture you together in the surroundings of your venue, walking and chatting and having a kiss.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

The groom ringing wedding bells in the church

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Enjoy it! Grab a brolly and dance in the rain.

Describe how you got into photography.

I've always loved wedding photography above all other types of photography - the love and joy, the need for calmness and professionalism, and the whole journey from planning to album.
