Full Description
I am a trained Beloved photographer and give you photos that capture your emotions so you can step back in time and feel them all again every time you see the photos. I mix styles to suit you as I also do group shots and bring lights to do more classical shots if you like that. It's a dialogue between us as each couple venue, day is different. I shoot weddings of all cultures and styles, from picnic ones to castle ones, from village halls to destination weddings. I have shot weddings of many religions and beliefs: Christian, Hindu, Muslim, Pagan, Baha'i, Humanist, Multi-faith as well as registry ones. What matters is that we're on the same wavelength. We'll talk on the phone, email and hopefully meet before the wedding. You can choose to have a pre-wedding shoot to help you relax on the day and get a beautiful and unique signing book. These shoots are all about your love and many people have said they felt even more in love and connected as a result. I offer several packages you can add to, you can pay monthly if you prefer. With all packages, you get 8 hours of photography, editing, a private gallery, app, free social media download with watermark- youtube video of virtual album. If 8 hours isn't enough, you can add more. I work fast so you get to see your photos within a week, usually in a few days. When you're happy with them you can get them asap in a beautiful personalised USB box. You can also get albums, parents' albums, pre-wedding shoot, signing book, slideshow to show on the day, the possibility of making all photos downloadable free for your guests, souvenir cards, thank you cards , frames etc. For albums, you choose the photos online, I design the album and you get to proof it so you know you'll like it. I work wherever you are and love discovering new places in UK or abroad. I charge transport at cost. Please see more at www.lumiere-photography.co.uk. I have several blogs and guides to help with the wedding planning.

FAQ
(10)

What is your most memorable wedding?

That most of my clients are still in touch with me years later, they are not a number, I care about each of them.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

I had published a book and was selling stock when a friend asked me to take some photos at his wedding, then told me he liked my photos better than his photographer's

What about your business are you most proud of?

Make the most of the venue inside, brave the rain, have white umbrellas, don't be scared to get wet, it makes great photos and fun memories, go barefoot, have wellies, enjoy.

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

At the end of the day what really matters is getting married to the one you love, so breathe, and enjoy the journey to your wedding and your wedding itself, It will go very quickly so take time to connect together during the day and make the most of your guests.

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

The most original wedding was in Morocco with a whole night wedding outdoors, 4 sets of amazing outfits including gem-incrusted one, the bride being carried above the crowd and the groom on a horse, ending with the bride dancing in a rose petal-covered shallow pool

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Escaping to see the horses with the couple's toddler because mum felt he should be happy too. Escaping to see a relative ill in bed at home.

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

Have photos of the two of you, and photos of your nearest and dearest, as naturally and authentically as possible, you want to remember the moment and the people as they really are, not stiff and pretending.

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

That's hard.. I love them all, the tipi one, the Swedish one, the minimalist London one, the one in Morocco, the one with rickshaws, the one with a subtle Dr who theme.. actually what stands out are the people, not the venue or the theme, but the personalities, fun, caring, so many lovely people.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Warm, authentic, natural, beautiful, vibrant

Describe how you got into photography.

We email, phone etc. I send quotes and a contract to book the date, we keep in touch and update details, I send a timing sheet and ask for more details nearer the time. I like to meet up but it's not always possible. Often we meet a the pre-wedding shoot. Then at the wedding. Everything can change on the day so I stay flexible and help where I can. The photos are ready in a few days usually, when the you're happy with them- you can request black and whites copies for example- you get your photos. You choose the ones for the album, I design it, you proof it, I send it to be printed, check it once it's done and get it to you asap. Usually we stay in touch- I have lost count of the babies born to my couples but it's over 20.
