What we enjoy most about shooting weddings is seeing our clients laugh, cry and gasp in amazement when they come back to view their wedding photos! We love it when our customers say things to us like 'I can't believe that's me’, ‘I don't usually like myself in pictures’ or ‘I didn’t even know you were there!!’ We illustrate your story by capturing all of those precious moments and emotions, the laughter, the nerves, the tears. All of your family and friends sharing this incredible experience and celebrating your love. We can't wait to hear about each couple’s wedding ideas and watch them grow from thoughts into reality. It’s a really special journey and one that we feel privileged to share. We’ve shot well over 100 weddings and we’d love to say that we’ve seen it all, but every wedding is a totally and utterly unique experience for us. It makes our job so much fun because we never know what we’re going to see next. We really do love seeing all of the different styles and themes that continue to blow our minds and the many wonderful ways that our clients really throw their personalities into their big day. Based in Oxford we work and shoot all over Europe, documenting the fun, tears and laughter of so many special couple's big day. From gardens, barns and fields to castles and palaces, we are so lucky to see all the amazing places that our clients take us to. We love what we do, we are fiercely proud of our work and of our reputation and we're really looking forward to sharing many more exciting wedding stories this year.

What is your most memorable wedding?
Oh wow, that's a tough question. Every wedding is so different and there are moments from all of them that will stick with us forever. I mean we've seen brides falling off banisters, Grooms chased by T-Rex's and RAF Fly by's! Actually we shot a Morris dancers wedding earlier this year where the bride was danced down the aisle by a harem of Morris ladies, that was pretty cool!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Beautiful, Creative, Quirky, Fun and Cheeky
What about your business are you most proud of?
Our reputation. We hear such lovely feedback from clients and from other suppliers that we work with and it always makes us feel so proud. It's the nicest feeling to know that you have made somebody else happy with your work.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Oooooh, good question. I would say be true to yourself. There are so many do's and dont's when it comes to wedding planning but just do it your way and don't be afraid to ask your suppliers for something weird or different... we actually love it when that happens!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Wow, again so many!! We worked with one nature loving couple who transformed the indoor venue into a whimsical woodland, it looked immense!!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We like to meet couples initially for an informal chat to find out what they want. At this stage then we can show them our portfolio and tell them a little bit about how we work. If they like us and like what we offer then we would normally book them in for an experience shoot. This gives them an opportunity to come along and have a short couples shoot with us to see the kind of thing they can expect from us and our photography on their wedding day. If they decide to book us then we will get all of the paperwork completed and generally keep in touch until the big day arrives. We might have another one or two meetings and often we stay connected and up to date with couples via email and social media. We aim to have the pictures ready to view within 2 weeks and we will usually see our clients again after the wedding to show them their pictures. Many of the couples we meet end up being friends and we often see clients again at their friends or families weddings.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
I'd say this is different for everyone and totally depends on the couple. We'll try and get inside our clients head's so that we know what their ultimate shot would be.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
The brother of the bride chasing the groom with a pitchfork. It was a farm wedding and he is a farmer so it makes total sense. Never seen that anywhere else though, haha.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
A set of stylish umbrellas (which I just happen to carry in the boot of my car at all times). Rainy days can actually be great for quirky and creative shots and if you have a good photographer then they will work with the weather to take some really cool, unusual shots. If it rains, snows or storms then I would say embrace it and don't let it ruin your day.
Describe how you got into photography.
I have always carried cameras around with me from a really young age. Even when I was at school I used to go in and photograph my classmates in the playground. Actually it was a fiend of mine that suggested I look at a career in photography. She said 'you are always taking pictures, why don't you just do it for a job?' So I looked up some photography courses, sent myself of to college and trained to do it professionally. Since then I've worked with some amazing photographers and clients and it's all thanks to my friend Sue really. I really wouldn't have done it without her.
