Really happy we booked Kelly. Photos were outstanding. The pre-wedding engagement shoot was integral to making me comfortable in front of the camera and understanding what we wanted. Awesome! - Mike

She captured every moment possible
Kelly was the best photographer we could have asked for! She captured every moment possible from getting ready with the girls, to the exciting yet nervous feelings you have before the wedding, the funny moments, the sentimental and loving exchanges and mostly the love there is between us. Every emotion and reaction from the guests and ourselves is documented. She took fantastic pictures of the venue and made us feel so relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera, we forgot she was there. Kelly understood exactly what we wanted to remember from our special day and we can't thank her enough for doing such an incredible job.

Our photos are amazing
Kelly was our wedding photographer last year and what a fabulous photographer she was! Our engagement shoot was great because I was so nervous about being photographed on our wedding day, I got all the nerves out the way. Our photos are amazing and capture real special moments that as the bride, I didn't mange to see on the big day. She had real imagination and it's so easy to put your trust in her for your special day

What is your most memorable wedding?

It's difficult to say as I photograph a lot of very creative weddings but probably the most memorable in terms of theme has to be a game of thrones style medieval wedding, in a castle in North Wales, that I photographed one October. It was probably my dream wedding - Pumpkins everywhere!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Natural, Fun, Unconventional, Personal, Modern

What about your business are you most proud of?

The relationships I've been able to form with my past couples. It's not just a business for me. I've made a lot of great friends through doing what I love.

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

Don't get caught up in perfection - Your wedding is yours and nobody else's, so try not to compare or get soaked up in pinterest too much. Go with the flow. It may rain - that's okay - your dress might get a bit dirty - that's okay too.. In fact, some of my favourite photos of couples are the ones where unexpected things happen and the best kind of photographs are the ones where you're just being you.

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

I did an outdoor hand fasting ceremony and as the bride was Welsh and the groom Scottish, they used two pieces of different kinds of fabric, one fabric from Wales and one from Scotland. There were also lots of details during the reception that went with the Scottish/Welsh theme.

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

Just allow more time for the two of you to have photos taken alone, as this time goes so quick usually and if we're taking them after the ceremony the guests typically like to wander over to us and start taking their own photos/directing themselves which eats into our time. I often advise to have some more portraits of you both taken in the evening after dinner to make up for this, especially if there's a good sunset! And you're usually more relaxed by this point.

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

It involved swords and a Druid in Glastonbury Abbey!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Embrace it! Have some clear umbrellas at the ready as rain can make for some amazing wedding photos. I've done lots of them!

Describe how you got into photography.

I've been taking photos since I was about 7 or 8. It had always been a hobby, I couldn't imagine doing anything else. I kinda fell into weddings about 8 or 9 years ago and enjoyed them a lot more than I thought I would, and now I'm absolutely in love with them.
