Full Description
I’m a former BBC journalist with an MA in photojournalism and use my experience in these fields to capture the beauty and love of your day as it unfolds in front of my camera; no posing, no cheese - just beautiful, real moments. I have over 8 years experience photographing weddings and photographed in lots of different situations and weather conditions, AND I love every minute of what I do and I believe every wedding is unique and special. I love getting to know my couples too, and really invest in them right from the beginning. I love finding out what makes them tick, as I really believe that helps me take better photos. One of my couples said this: "It was like inviting a friend along to our wedding who just happened to take amazing and beautiful photographs.." I'd love to hear about your wedding plans so please do get in touch. Sharron x

She is an outstanding photographer!
We were first made aware of Sharron when she was recommended to us by a friend, and we are glad that she was. Sharron is such a lovely lady with a great personality. From when we first spoke with Sharron to when our photos were being delivered she was professional, kind, and amazing. We were able to meet Sharron very early on in organising our wedding and we instantly knew we made the right decision. Her photography skills are fantastic and she managed to capture all of our precious moments throughout our wedding day. She managed all by herself to photograph our entire day, from myself and my husband-to-be getting ready in the morning at two different locations, to us enjoying our day and night with our guests. There wasn’t a part of our day that she missed. Her attention to detail is truly outstanding. She was great in helping us with selecting what photos to have taken on the day of our wedding and when nervous in-front of the camera she always had great ideas to relax us to get the natural shots. When the delivery of our photos arrived her attention to detail continued, from how the package was beautifully decorated, to the extras in the box that we weren’t expecting, to the little extra additions of our amazing wedding photos. Sharron also put together a video of our photos which was completely unexpected, something we have watched over and over again to re-live our magical day. We can’t recommend Sharron enough, she is an outstanding photographer and a lovely lady!! Thank you so much for making one of our great moments in life and turning it into a memory we can look back over and over again. Xxxxxx

I couldn't recommend Sharron Gibson highly enough.
What a lovely lady with a great talent for capturing the moment. We barely noticed she was there half the time and the photos are fantastic. The portrait shots (which we were self consciously dreading doing!) were actually a lot of fun to shoot with Sharron. I couldn't recommend Sharron Gibson highly enough.

What magic happens when you look through the lens?
I just wanted to say how blown away I am by the photos, I've been really emotional since I've been looking at them. Deborah cried at the gallery photos, and Vicky cried at the slide show - do you often get this response? How do I put into words what I'm feeling? I don't know how you managed to get such a calm and restful feeling in the preparation photos - Lydia does not come across as being bubbly and excited but that's not her - instead you have really caught the essence of the quiet, peaceful inner happiness that she often doesn't show to the outside world (partly because she is very quiet and reserved and partly because the busyness and stress of everyday life in London as a working mother take over). She doesn't wear her heart on her sleeve, except with Felix, but there is so much emotion in the photos. What magic happens when you look through the lens? Is it your perception and connection with your clients, who rapidly become friends rather than clients, or is it something from your heart and beliefs that spills over and enables them to respond in a similar way - or a combination of both? Whatever it is, you instantly gained such trust from Lydia, Luke and Felix that they were able to let their awkwardness and inhibitions go in front of the camera. I'm touched by the vulnerability and love and happiness that your relationship with them, and the way you work on the day, allowed them the confidence and freedom to express.

It was an emotional and overwhelming experience
We just wanted to say a big heartfelt thank you for taking such beautiful pictures of our wedding day. We love how they truly capture all the colour and the happy, relaxed atmosphere of the day. And all the fabulous facial expressions! It was quite an emotional and overwhelming experience looking through them all and reliving the day. Really wonderful to see what was going on when we were preoccupied elsewhere! We especially loved the slideshow of the best bits with the music. It brought tears to both our eyes! Such a lovely and unexpected touch. Even more unexpected was the surprise box of goodies which we received from you this morning. Everything so beautifully presented and the chocolates will go down a treat . Thank you so much for everything. It has been our absolute pleasure to have you as our wedding photographer and we really enjoyed getting to know you a little over the last few months.

You really have a true talent!
"THANK YOU SO SO much for the photos. It was actually my birthday when we opened them and it was just the best present ever. They are wonderful - we are thrilled. You really have a true talent at capturing the little moments and facial expressions - the fake pies for example, and all the laughter - and they truly bring back all the memories from the day. It's also wonderful seeing the different perspectives of who was talking to who (when I was just always on the dance floor for example!) and everyone laughing at the speeches too. We really enjoyed meeting you and getting to know you a little over the course of our wedding. Thank you for the personal attention and advice. And we hope to see you again soon at the wedding's of our friends, as we will certainly be recommending you to them!

What is your most memorable wedding?

Mine, of course! We had a teeny tiny wedding in our back garden with family and a few friends. Our close friend Matthew was the celebrant and did a wonderful job. It rained all day but it didn't spoil any of it. It was just perfect!

I once asked former couples to describe my style and these are the words they came up with: emotive, joyous, heartfelt, beautiful, artistic.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Being chosen as one of Top 50 in the UK wedding photographers by Go Hen. Completely unexpected - especially as there are so many to chose from. :-)

Describe how you got into photography.

Photography has always been a hobby, but as a journalist I wanted to do more photography - so moved to news photography. I then fell in love with photographing weddings... I mean, who wouldn't!
