Full Description
Welcome, and Thank you for viewing my BrideBook Profile. I offer a relaxed, natural approach to the Weddings. I specialise in colour, fun and those natural moments, making your day feel relaxed and well in hand. I will communicate with the venue managers to revolve around your plan on the day. I will be there for preps in the morning, right through to the Couples first dance, capturing the perfect moments in-between... and I can offer a second shooter (An additional photographer) at an additional cost to be with us in the morning through to first dance. The second photographer will add a different perspective to the day. Please enquire about the additional cost. Once your wedding is ready and edited, I upload all images to a beautiful online gallery ready to share with friends and family. I can provide you with Wedding Albums, Printed Photographs etc at additional costs, all of which we would discuss before and after your wedding. All images are kept on external hard drives and backed up for 3 years guaranteed (However, I aim to always have these should you have a mishap with the downloads). We will meet for 1-2 hours before your wedding for an inclusive 'engagement' shoot (included in most packages for 2019, under review for 2020+), this way we can spend some time with each other, so that you feel comfortable and relaxed around me on the special day. These images will be provided to you via an online gallery to share with friends and family. Any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me... Email is the best and quickest way to contact me, Any time! Please find me on Instagram @lauramarthaphotography PS. If your wedding is overseas, I would love to come along! Please ask for a quote!

She went above and beyond what we expected and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.
We genuinely couldn't recommend Laura highly enough. We're both quite picky when it comes to photography, but Laura completely nailed what it was we wanted, both during our engagement shoot and on the wedding day. We absolutely love the photos. She was also amazing on the day, putting everyone at ease and getting everyone together to capture the big family shots. All of the shots, from the ceremony through to the reception, were great. She was super easy to communicate with too, sending us our completed images promptly along with a USB in a really nice presentation box. She went above and beyond what we expected and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

Absolutely faultless (and an awful lot of fun)
I cannot quite find the words to describe how brilliant Laura is. Photography was one of the most important things to me and my husband for our wedding, and after meeting with Laura I instantly knew that she “got it”. Her unobtrusive but insanely helpful and fun approach meant that all our guests thought she was another family friend (with some fancy kit!) Nothing was too much of an issue, Laura went out of her way to make the day as stress free from helping with final touches getting ready to finding bouquets when they’d gone walkabout and seeking out flip flops when the heels got too much. The pictures we have had back are so beautiful and I cannot wait to share them fully with family and friends who are also insanely excited to see them. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Laura to anyone wanting fun, relaxed but stunning photographs.

ANDY AND ADAM’S ONBOARD THEIR SAILING HOME
Hope you’re enjoying the wonderful summer! Todays shoot is a little bit different than most of the engagement shoots. As Laura couldn’t join Andy and Adam for their big day, she had an idea to pull all the stops for the engagement shoot – especially that the location was so amazing. She invited other suppliers, styled the whole thing and photographed it beautifully.

Laura is welcoming, she feels just like your best friend!
Laura was absolutely amazing from start to finish. She made both our pre shoot and wedding day photography easy and relaxed. Her warm and friendly manner makes you feel so at ease and comfortable in her’s and the camera’s presence. Laura is welcoming that she feels just like your best friend! The photos we have received are absolutely stunning and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. For us, she has captured our day perfectly. We would highly recommend Laura to anyone thinking about booking her for a couples shoot or for their big day.

Pantone Ultra Violet Elegant Wedding Inspiration
Pinterest is awash with inspiring images already but as we all know, it takes time to sort the wheat from the chaffe and find the really beautiful, relatable images that might actually help us recreate something as lovely on our own wedding days. Illy from Illy Elizabeth Weddings recently created a luxury shoot for Love My Dress, inspired by this most dramatic of hues. Employing a small team of talented wedding creatives, she set out to demonstrate how such a bold colour can be elegantly and creatively incorporated into wedding day decor and style. I was delighted to see that Illy collaborated with independent designer Sienna Von Hildemar on these images too – we recently introduced our readers to London based Sienna – her design aesthetic is Love My Dress through and through. I adore these images and hope you do to.

FAQ
(10)

What is your most memorable wedding?

One in 2016! We was in a marque, in a field, with thunder and lightning crashing around us! it was loud, wet and really fun... The guests found it entertaining, the Bride and Groom didn't let it faze them and the sun came out and shone a rainbow... which gave us just enough time for group pictures!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed, Friendly, Professional, colourful and happy

What about your business are you most proud of?

The comments I get during and after a wedding, everyone is always so wonderful and positive!

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

Its about you... this is YOUR day! remember that. It is not about trying to please everyone, because it is almost impossible. Plus here some handy know it tips... People are always happy with full tummies!! It's a long day for you, and your guests, so a full tummy makes a happy guest. Leave at least 10 minutes in between each 'part of the day' as things always over run. Don't panic about the dress! even the cleanest hotels will ensure a dress hem is dirty! Keep Group shots to a minimum to maximise the best of your day! Your bridesmaids and groomsmen are there to HELP! it's not just an open bar for them... ensure they're helping and taking on tasks so you don't have to!

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

Handmade favours! its so nice to be able to take away something lovingly made by the couple and their wedding party! Plus, I get to photograph them. Choose something useful, or drink/food based, that way if any are left over, you get to eat or drink them!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I'll have a little chat via email about you, your day and our expectations. We will then meet and have a little drink over the details. I require then a 20% deposit within 1 week of confirming your booking. We will have an engagement shoot, where you will get to have some fun. Between the engagement shoot and the wedding day, you will have time to think about your shoot list. I will review this and see if anything is missing. On the morning I will arrive a little earlier, and will photograph the morning prep, details, location etc leading onto the rest of the day using your venue plan. Your wedding images will be ready up to 6 weeks after your wedding day. If you have ordered an album, this will normally take 6 weeks once the process starts.

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

Always take 5-10 minutes after the ceremony to yourself... this will make your personal photos feel excited, relaxed and happy. When you think about Your number one picture, just think of the photo you loved most from a friends wedding. Was it their laughter, their dancing, their romantic couple portraits? or think, what is You... laughing and joking, fashionable and sassy, or elegant and uber sexy! haha, this is down to you, and not me!

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

Gosh! It wasn't a wedding...I was doing a couple shoot in Copenhagen, and the couple were huge Star Wars 'nerds' so we photographed them in their cloaks with lightsabers!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Just smile! As long as you smile, and trust me, you will have a magical day... Photographers love an overcast day, the light is beautiful! and we can always make it brighter :) so never panic that the day isn't sunny! I had a wedding this August where is rained all the way until 'golden hour' we had about 30 minutes to get some outdoor pictures!

Describe how you got into photography.

I just love seeing people have a great day! I was asked to do a friend of a friends wedding, and I hadn't photographed a wedding before... and I love it! It helped that they had an espresso martini bar!! I then was asked by one of the bridesmaids, then the brides brother, and so on!
