I adore capturing beautifully styled weddings, using my years as art director for leading bridal magazine WEDDING to very much influence my style – editorial (naturally) with fine art influences but always storytelling. I work as a duo with equally talented photographer Michelle, bringing together our two styles to create the perfect collection. Michelle specialises in storytelling, whilst I am fine art editorial, so as well as telling your story we are creating what will become your first family memoir. Hopefully something you will be showing grandchildren. For me, as I only book a limited number of couples a year it’s about us being right for each other. If you just want a photographer to capture the day then I might not be the right one, but if you love editorial photography, want to create something beautiful and tell your own (fun) wedding story we would love to get to know you. At some wedding guests presume we’re friends already, so when you get in touch I would really love to LOTS about you two, about your wedding, the style, the details and the things that are important to you both. I love to have fun relaxed day with you two, after all chances are you will spend as much time with me on the day as any guest! I have been lucky enough to work with the industry’s finest, from top fashion photographers and talented wedding planners, to leading cake designer and florists, and I am very fortunate to call many of them friends. I am very fortunate that the combination of stylish weddings and couples with my editorial style means lots of my weddings get featured in top bridal magazines (you can see some here). Me personally, of course I love photography and imagery which is why I am a pinterest and instagram fan, but I am lucky to be blessed with two amazing children and a husband who makes me laugh every day. I have a VERY sweet tooth and get excited before every wedding at the chance to get dressed up (and wearing red lipstick) and I cross my fingers for golden

Perfect wedding magazine photographer of the year - second place.
You and your wedding wedding photographs of the year 2nd and 3rd place
What is your most memorable wedding?
We have literally photographed 100s of weddings and everyone is memorable in its own way, but across the years - a groom arriving on a horse, tearful speech by an adoring dad as the bride had gone into remission from cancer, hilarious bridesmaids, beautiful sunsets, all weddings need is to be personal and they are all beautiful
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Fine art, Editorial, creative but still story-telling
What about your business are you most proud of?
Being us, people recommend us for being kind, friendly and personable, yet still creating beautiful memories
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Be true yourself, you dont have to do anything unless its right for you two
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Photographs in golden hour, sometimes just after dinner, youre both more relaxed and it always give us the best couple shots
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Umbrellas and a smile, dont worry about it - some of my favourite weddings have had a bit of rain, this summer on a particularly wet wedding the bride and groom literally laughed their way through the vows as they could see the rain coming down. It wasnt what they had planned - but by having good humour it didn't spoil a thing and then in the evening the rain cleared the clouds as we got the most amazing sunset. And you know what you can hardly tell from the photographs
Describe how you got into photography.
I did a photography A-level at school, but from that went onto to do a design degree but on leaving university I took further photography courses, and inspired by friends lack lustre wedding photographs 11 years ago I thought perhaps I could do better
