Full Description
Time flies, memories fade away quickly and your loved ones won’t always be there. I create photos that capture your love story in a truthful, effortless way so that you never forget your wedding or the way you felt. Choosing the right wedding photographer can be very difficult, I get it. To get beautiful, natural wedding photos you need a photographer who cares and who will take the time to get to know you BEFORE your wedding. It’s my job to create a space where you feel comfortable and you can be yourselves. "Manon was the most incredible wedding photographer we could have asked for. Right from the very first meeting her friendly, bubbly personality made both of us feel immediately at ease." - T&B Every couple is different. Your values and your priorities are unique to who you are which is why I only do custom pricing so that I can give you exactly what you need with the transparency you deserve. How to book? • Get in touch - You’ve got to start somewhere! • Tell me about your wedding - If I’m available for your date, we’ll book a call to have a chat. • Receive your custom quote - Based on our chat, I’ll put together a custom proposal just for you. Easy, right? I exclusively take on 20 weddings per year so that I can give each of my couples the bespoke wedding experience they deserve. Your love story is unique and your wedding photos should be to!

We love the pictures
We do have pictures of the two of us together but they’re mostly snaps taken by friends or family. They’re lovely but not always the best quality which can be frustrating if you want to frame them. I was quite nervous about the session just not wanting to feel silly or embarrassed! But I was looking forward to it because I love to have pictures of us to capture that time of our lives together and so I was really excited for that. Manon made the session so easy and relaxed. I thought it could be quite awkward, and yes there are times where you feel a bit silly but Manon is so reassuring and helps you to relax. It was really nice to spend the time with Alex and it was fun to experience that together which helps because you can have a laugh about what’s going on! To be honest it felt like we were hanging out with a friend and having a chat, and then that friend was taking pictures of us! Manon sent a few sneak peeks of the photos and from seeing those I couldn’t wait to see the rest. When I opened the email it took a while for my phone to load and I just wanted to see the pictures! We love the pictures and love how Manon managed to capture us in them and our relationship. The lighting and setting is beautiful which she’s managed to capture in them too. We’ve already got some printed and up around the house. We would definitely do it again and would love to hang out with Manon again in a heartbeat it was great! We’ve already recommended it to friends and just love that we have our relationship and where we are in our lives at the minute captured. Thank you so much!

the most incredible wedding photographer
Manon was the most incredible wedding photographer we could have asked for. Right from the very first meeting her friendly, bubbly personality made both of us feel immediately at ease. We are both fairly awkward around cameras, strangers and with being affectionate in front of people/in public making getting photos of us as a couple difficult but Manon managed to get hundreds that we love! We were planning our whole wedding from a distance so we were often awkward and badly organised but Manon stayed patient and went out of her way to make it work throughout. She went way above and beyond what you would expect from a photographer. She is such a genuinely lovely person, who is so easy to get along with. She puts everyone at ease, our whole family and all our friends loved her, meaning we got an album full of relaxed, natural shots which is exactly what we wanted. I literally cannot recommend her enough. Thank you so much for the massive role you played in making our day so special!

Manon is so lovely and open-minded
We met Manon for a surrender session in Berlin and I completely love to look back to that day - especially with the help of the wonderful pictures she took. If you are worried booking someone to take cute photos of you I can completely refute that thought. Manon is so lovely and open-minded from the first second on and will not make you pose awkwardly but catch you and your loved one in the most natural and authentic way. I think I got some years left until I marry but when I do, Manon will be my first choice :)

Everyone at the wedding loved her
Manon was the photographer for our wedding. I couldn't ask for a better person: creative, professional, precise, friendly. Everyone at the wedding loved her. She took stunning pictures and we received them quickly after the day, it was a real pleasure to work with her!

Love, love LOVE Manon's work
"Love, love LOVE Manon's work. The images are pure perfection, she's a magician with capturing the light." - Liv "Initially when my Girlfriend suggested that we get some professional photos taken together, I was apprehensive. However that being said, Manon made the experience not only enjoyable but also comfortable and with zero awkwardness. The shots are superb and we will be getting some printed for sure... I can now successfully even remember the colour of my Girlfriends eyes haha! Thanks Manon." - Mitch

The perfect photographer!
Manon put us at ease from the moment we met her in a coffee shop. The initial meeting is designed to see if we gel as people which we did! We had a couples session prior to the wedding to get used to the camera. I wasn't particularly looking forward to this but Manon put us completely at ease. It was just like being out with a friend! Manon communicated really well between booking and wedding which helps takes the stress out of organisation. On the day, Manon was amazing, all of my friends and family commented on how she is the perfect blend of firm, commands attention but friendly and funny with it. She whisked us off after the ceremony for a much needed few moments alone. The sneak peeks we've had so far are amazing. Manon has an incredible eye. As you can tell I've not a bad word to say about her and would highly recommend you meet her and book her!

FAQ
(10)

What is your most memorable wedding?

My own of course! Strangely enough, being a photographer and all, I didn't take more than a few selfies on my wedding day. I chose a photographer whose work I love and I often use as inspiration so I trusted him completely and felt totally relaxed.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Romantic, authentic, natural, emotional & intimate.

What about your business are you most proud of?

That I put my couples at the centre of what I do. Weddings are a collection of moments that represent your life together and all the days that have led you here. They’re a celebration of love, friendship and all the values that are important to you. Your love is unique and I believe that you deserve meaningful wedding photos that honour your story and capture who you are. You should be able to focus on what matters: being present, laughing, enjoying your day and creating magical memories. Your wedding day isn't about me as a photographer, it's about you.

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

Give yourself time and space for the emotional journey that is planning a wedding. My biggest piece of advice is to sit down together and talk before you even start planning. Grab a pen and paper and ask yourselves questions like "What do we really want? What does this wedding mean to us?" Once you have the answer, make it your top priority so that every wedding planning decision you make from now on takes you one step closer to that.

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

There are too many to choose from... I develop a close relationship with each of my couples that often lasts beyond their wedding, it would be unfair to single out one wedding or one detail that stands out amongst the others.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Step 1 - Get in touch! Step 2 - Let’s chat about your wedding so I can put together a custom quote for you. Step 3 - Lets’ rock your wedding day and create beautiful photos you'll love. Step 4 (optional) - Bore people to death with your wedding photos for years and years to come.

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

There isn't one because weddings aren't one-size-fits-all. Every couple has a unique love story so their wedding day and their wedding photos should reflect who they are. Don't start planning your wedding thinking that you must do this or you must have that, instead ask yourselves "what do I really want?". I have great advice about this on my blog!

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

Again, every wedding is different and unique. Most of the couples that choose me as their wedding photographer tend to do things in their own way so we don't go into the wedding with a shot list. We'll have a plan and a rough timeline and then we go with the flow and capture the day as it unfolds.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Embrace it! We live in England after all so a rainy wedding is always a possibility, make sure you have some pretty umbrellas prepared just in case and enjoy your day regardless.

Describe how you got into photography.

Well, it's a rather long and boring story so instead, I'll tell you a little about me. You probably don’t want a total stranger showing up on your wedding day to photograph it and that’s why I’m all about getting to know each other BEFORE the big day. I LOOOOVE chocolate. Also, coffee, rum and travelling. I’m a lively Argentine living in Brighton with my English husband, Stephen. Shyness is not one of my many qualities I’m afraid! Technically, I’m French but you can ask me more about that over coffee. If you'd like to know more, there's a handy “about me” page on my website which sums me up pretty well, complete with some quick facts and an interactive map.
