Full Description
I’m a lover of a good wedding, the dress, the flowers, the DIY favours, the kids playing with the confetti on the floor… I love the nervous- excitement beforehand, the passion during the day, and the messy bit at the end! I love it when my couples and families have fun and I love nothing more than photographing them doing just that. Have a look at my website gallery and blog - I can do gorgeous albums, along with USBs. Get in touch to discuss your wedding!

"fun, love and madness"
Thank you so much for capturing our wedding day in your wonderful photography. You and Katie were both fabulous and captured all the fun, love and madness of our beautiful and amazing day! The photos are just fabulous - tricky bit will be deciding which ones to put into the album!! Can totally recommend Clare to anybody looking for a fun but totally professional photographer! 🤗

"put me at ease"
I found Clare through her website and booked her as I was looking for a fun photographer who would put me at ease on the day and this is exactly what Clare did. She was brilliant from start to finish and the photos that I received were absolutely beautiful and captured our day perfectly. I honestly can’t recommend her enough and she did such a great job on my day that my brother and his fiancé have decided to use her for their wedding!

"all the feelings"
Clare you're amazing!!! You captured all the feelings and love in your beautiful photo’s. I loved having you with us on our special day, you gave us moments to pause and take it all in (you also helped my nerves when I was getting ready). We loved that you were up for trying the sparkler pictures too (thank you Katie!!!!) and our daughter is definitely a fan of both you and Katie. Our guests loved you (a few asked me for your details). Thank you thank you thank you Tasha and Sean

"really calmed my nerves"
Clare and Katie were amazing. Clare came to photograph me getting ready and really calmed my nerves in the process. Their photos are natural and caught ourselves and our guests at their best. Clare reacted amazingly to our family photo requests on the day and they both went with the flow of the day. Clare and Katie stayed late into the evening getting the shots of people that we really wanted. I could not recommend Clare and Katie more. Everyone commented on how lovely they were and how they reacted to personal requests on the day. I wouldn’t hesitate on booking Clare again for any big occasions.

"we invited them to join the party"
Clare and Katie went above and beyond for me and my husband on our wedding day; from the start when we got ready, to the end where we invited them to join the party! Can’t thank them enough for their flawless and phenomenal work, a day to remember. So highly professional and made us feel at ease throughout, never once did we feel like we hired them to take photos - they were our guests. A huge thank you from the bottom of our hearts ❤️

"captured our day beautifully"
Clare recently photographed our wedding and we couldn’t believe the amount of photos we were given! She captured our day beautifully, with a perfect amount of posed and candid shots. Both Katie and Clare could not have been more helpful or friendly throughout the day!

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

One of my first big proper weddings at Hedingham Castle - what an amazing venue and an amazing experience!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Not-Very-Serious-Likes-Cake (OK not 5 adjectives....)

What about your business are you most proud of?

Doing most of the business management myself, I know, it sounds sad, but I'm proud of marketing, doing my tax returns, sorting my insurance out etc. I'm also proud that I can pay my bills by being me :)

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

Don't get bogged down in the details, the day is about you and your love for each other - everything else is just atmosphere :)

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

Bottles of home made sloe gin at each table!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

My life evolves around food... so we'll probably meet for a coffee and a chat (biscuits and cake) - before you book - so we know we are right for each other. Once you've booked, then we'll meet about a month before the wedding (more biscuits and cake) - if you've got a pre-wedding shoot then we'll do this at some point between booking and the pre-wedding chat (ice-creams on the beach / pic-nic in the park) Then the wedding day happens (canapes - which I try desperately not to eat!) After the wedding, if you've got a USB then that will be ready to collect or be delivered (more coffee / biscuits / cake - probably) I'm probably not good for anyone on a diet!

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

Bride in the toilet with her Bridesmaids holding up her dress. I wasn't there for actual weewee time - it was just the act of everyone holding the dress up!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Colourful umbrellas and wellys - embrace the fact we live in England :D
