My work combines elements of documentary and creative photography. You will often find me looking for interesting backgrounds and twinkly lights. I have a full and part day package option on my website to give my couples the choice they are after. FULL DAY WEDDING £1200 // DIGITAL This package includes a free engagement photo shoot, coverage of your preparations to first dance on your wedding day, with all your edited images in digital format on a keepsake USB.

We're so happy we chose Marina
When choosing our photographer, we definitely made the right choice - working with Marina was a pleasure from start to finish. The first time we met Marina was for our engagement shoot. We'd never had professional photos taken before so we felt nervous but, with Marina's help, we enjoyed ourselves and the photos are beautiful - we knew then that the wedding ones would be perfect (and they really are). Between our engagement shoot and our wedding, Marina communicated with us really well - we knew exactly what to expect (However, never did I think having photos taken would be my favourite part of the day - more on that in a minute). During the ceremony and reception, Marina did a great job of capturing us and our loved ones without getting in the way - which the reverand and a number of our guests complimented her for. During the group photographs, Marina was organised and ensured a part of the day that could have been stressful (based on the size of my husband's family) went smoothly. But, what we loved most about working with Marina was the couple photographs. Apart from seeing Matt's face for the first time and saying 'I do', it was my favourite part of the day. Marina gave us space to talk (for the first time as husband and wife) and to enjoy the precious moment - she took hundreds of photos without making us feel like we were in front of a camera and the results are absolutely stunning. We love our wedding photos so so so much and I would have one on every wall in the house if I could. I am looking forward to working with Marina again in the future - maybe next time there will be more than two of us but, until then, I'll be recommending her to every bride to be I know. PS The turnaround time and presentation of the photos was also really really really good.

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

To enjoy the journey of planning and to treat each other with respect and love. Its not worth it falling out with your future spouse about the flavour of your wedding cake etc. and even if you have planned it all to perfection if anything goes wrong on the day, just relax and enjoy your wedding. Also, express your personal style, make it very YOU xx

A couple who love playing Lego and board games had lots of game touches in the wedding decor, and a Lego wedding cake.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Describe how you got into photography.

It was my favourite hobby that turned into a dream and then I decided to go for it. I studied a diploma course in professional photography and then started doing wedding workshops with brilliant photographers of different styles. I have acquired a range of skills and you will often see my work reflects fine art photography, yet also documentary and natural moments. I aslo like to play with different exposures and creative elements.
