Full Description
I would describe my style as natural, earthy, relaxed and romantic wedding photography. My aim is to capture your wedding organically as it unfolds. I’m there for every special moment, the joy, the laughter, the love, the tears, capturing your personalities and quirky details and everything that is special to you. I live for the adventurous couples, the wildflower brides, the home-brewing grooms and most of all the couples who are swept up in the romance of their commitment to one another rather than the production of a wedding! Whether it’s popping that special bottle at 8am with your girls, capturing the candid moments with your nearest and dearest, welling up at the first look of your love walking down the aisle, I want to be immersed in it all and I’m already obsessed with your wedding. Other than photographing beautiful couples you can find me hanging out with my overly handsome husband and my beautiful boys, watching and playing sports or travelling the world. Just a few of my favourite destinations include, Amalfi Coast, Malibu, Canada, Australia, Mexico, Barcelona and of course my home, bonnie Scotland.

I really can’t recommend Nicole enough, she is so talented! I was really nervous before our shoot and she made it extremely fun and relaxing. The pictures are incredible, so natural and just stunning. She’s able to capture so many moments and emotions, I really would recommend using her for any occasion!

Where do I begin, I can not recommend Nicole enough. She has given us the most perfect pictures to look back on of our special day! So so happy! Lots of contact running up to our big day. She made me feel at ease all morning of the wedding whilst getting ready right up until our first dance � Sneak peaks of photos filling my wedding blues hole until we received our pics. Thank you so so much for everything. You are amazing Xxxx

So we my wife and I arranged to meet Nicole at Durdle Door for photos on the beach, it was a pretty busy day on the beach but we were made to feel really comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera. We spent an hour or so on the beach, time flew by, and we had a fantastic time, with lots of laughing and enjoyment. The results were fantastic and we are really happy with the photos that we received. I would highly recommend Nicole to other people that want high quality photos.

Where do I start.. I cannot recommended Nicole enough for her beautiful work which she has produced. Looking at the pictures she has taken is just breathtaking. Nicole made myself and David feel so relaxed and at ease. Her talent and work behind the camera is second to none. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the shoot. If your looking for a photographer I would defiantly look no further. Thank you so much for a lovely morning spent up Dumyat

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

I have had so many beautiful weddings and engagement shoots. I couldn't possibly pick one. I do love military weddings, one of which I done recently. I love their wedding traditions. I also have an elopement coming up in Sorrento, Italy which I think is going to be pretty memorable!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Adventurous - Romantic - Passionate - Unassuming - Alternative

What about your business are you most proud of?

I'm so proud to be an integral part of people's wedding day. I get to share the day with the couple from start to finish and I feel so lucky and especially proud that people choose me to do that. I get to see and feel all of the emotions from nerves and anticipation during bridal prep, to excitement walking down the aisle or the love and all the feels throughout the ceremony and finally the relief and pride once you are married and everything you have been waiting for has finally come together. It is such a joy!

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

Only invite the people you want to invite - not who you think you should.

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

I've seen lots of beautiful and quirky things at weddings. I love the way some of my brides remembered their loved ones by attaching lockets to their bouquets or a couple once had a surf board as their seating plan - that was very cool.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I love to meet with my couples a few times before they get married and that includes a casual meet up (with coffee or Prosecco) to discuss wedding plans and how I work on the day, a pre engagement shoot as soon as we can get that booked in and a pre wedding venue visit (this doesn't always require the couple to attend) so I am familiar with the venue before the big day.

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

This is SO HARD to answer - if there was only one image a couple should take then why have a photographer! There are so many glorious moments throughout the day that must be remembered.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Be open to Mother Nature. Sometimes it rains and there's not a thing we can do about it. We improvise! We can either dance in the rain (would love that) or I find an alternative location within the wedding venue/area. There is always somewhere to take beautiful images.

Describe how you got into photography.

I've always loved photography and I've always gushed over other peoples work until I picked up a DSLR for the first time. I knew straight away that I had to be a photographer and capture beautiful couples.
