Full Description
I'm a total romantic at heart and absolutely love being a wedding photographer. If you're looking for someone who shares your excitement about your wedding then you're looking in the right place. Telling the story of your unique day through photographs is a true privilege. These are the photos that will keep your wedding memories alive not just for you but your whole family as well as your children and your grandchildren. I make sure I capture everything for you to remember, from the tender tears to the the giggles of your guests. I pride myself on being unobtrusive while being in the right place at the right time to capture it all as naturally as possible. Wedding photography is all about you, your family and your guests. But don't worry, I don't forget the details. A lot of work goes into the cake, the flowers, the colour scheme, the food, table names and decorations and I love capturing all the things that you've spent so long planning and crafting. Being married and a parent myself helps me engage easily with everyone of all ages in your wedding party. I know how to bring the best out in people and I pride myself in my many google reviews from brides and grooms who always comment on how fun and relaxed I helped to make their day.

"She put us and our guests at our ease."
Tessa did our wedding photography this summer and she was simply fantastic from start to finish. From the moment we met her we knew that she was the right person to photograph our wedding. Professional and experienced, she ensured that everything was planned to run as smoothly as possible. She put us and our guests at our ease, and captured both the formality and the informality of the day perfectly. We absolutely love our wedding photos. Thank you Tessa

"Tes was amazing."
Tes photographed our wedding and was amazing. She was very professional and a great communicator. From the pre wedding meetings at home and at the venue she put us at ease, listened to what we wanted and followed up all our conversations with emails to confirm each step. The photos are wonderful and really sum up our day. Everyone who has seen them compliment her on the quality and details she has included. We will definitely use Tes again for any family or special occasions. We are a very satisfied couple of customers. Thanks again Tes you made our day even more special.

"Beautiful natural shots."
Can’t recommend Tessa highly enough. We loved our pictures and Tessa is very professional and fantastic with the youngsters. She did her homework of the church and venue and took some trial shots a few weeks before which really gave us confidence on the day. She was brilliant on the day and the result was some beautiful natural shots and gorgeous portraits and group shots. We couldn’t be happier and we have wonderful pictures of our special day to treasure. Thank-you so much Tessa. Xx

"She did an amazing job."
Tessa is lovely, so friendly yet professional. We recently tested her by asking her to include our little doggies in our wedding photo's. Even out of her comfort zone including dogs, she did an amazing job and we now have some absolutely beautiful pictures of us all to remind us of the day.

"She really went the extra mile."
Tes was such a helpful, friendly and professional photographer right from the start when my husband and I first visited her to enquire about packages; we were invited over to her house and chatted over a cup of tea about what we wanted from the day. Tes really knew her stuff and was amazing at our wedding, she really went the extra mile and created a rapport with all of the wedding party and guests to make us all feel comfortable and relaxed ! Tes took so many amazing photos that really capture the moment and that we will cherish forever. I would highly recommend Tes.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

Wow that's a hard one! I've loved them all for different reasons. Every wedding has something unique about it. One saw the bride and groom literally dance out of the Church to the tune 'Happy'. Another was so windy the bride's veil had a life of its own. I can tell you plenty more memorable tales over a cup of tea :)

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed, natural, discreet, modern and emotive

What about your business are you most proud of?

I think the relationships I create with my clients is definitely what I'm most proud of. I meet them at the consultation and again before the wedding date so I really get to know them and understand what's important to them. It really helps couples relax and feel at ease on the day.

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

Stay true to what matters to you the most. When I see couples adding their own personality and quirks to a wedding it's amazing. So unique. Be brave and don't feel like you have to conform to certain traditions if it's really not 'you'.

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

A couples who got their dogs to be the ring bearers.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I always meet the couple for a consultation and once I've been booked, I meet the couple at their venue about 6 weeks before. Here we do a little 'practice' shoot of some portraits to help them relax and get used to me behind the camera. It really helps people to know what to expect on the day and I give them some tips to prepare them for the big day. At this meeting we also sit down and go through all the final details and timings of the day before I then put together my shooting schedule.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Umbrellas and wellies or a change of shoes as it's still fun to go outside and get some shots in the rain.

Describe how you got into photography.

From the moment I was given my first camera at the age of 9 I just loved it. I still remember the buzz when I started experimenting with my camera back then. About 15 years ago I travelled the world with my husband and spent most of my time behind the lens. I fell in love with people photography and even got a finalist position in The Independent’s ‘Travel Photography of the Year’. That's when I set up my business and I haven't looked back.
