Capturing Life's Little Moments Since 2013
I have over 5 years experience in wedding photography and I always feel honoured to be part of such a special day. To be included in your Wedding Day is so exciting, seeing it through from the morning until you say I DO! I guarantee you by the end of the day we will be good friends.
After your big day, all you have left is your memories and photographs, and so I aim to capture your day and provide you with lots of both! If you have any special requests or any specific images you want just let me know and I will be happy to include these for you.
I have a relaxed, friendly approach and always do my best to put the happy couple and their families at ease, and aswell as taking traditional portraits of your day, I also love to include lots of natural moments too. Real moments with genuine emotions are my favourite. I want to capture love, tears, joy and happiness and all the rest in between. I want you to laugh (and sometimes dance!) but most of all I want you to have FUN!! This is one of the best days of your life, so relax and enjoy it.
I would always recommend you meet your wedding photographer before making a decision, so please get in touch to arrange a free consultation to discuss your requirements.
COVERAGE OF YOUR WEDDING DAY
• Bridal preparation in the morning before the wedding (if required)
• Full coverage of the ceremony
• Family photographs after the ceremony
• Photographs of the bridal party (bridesmaids, groomsmen, etc)
• Romantic photographs of the bride & groom
• Full coverage of the speeches
• Mock cutting of the wedding cake (if required)
• Professional editing on all images in a selection of colour and black & white provided on a USB, along with an online gallery that you can share with family and friends
I always create a Schedule for your Wedding Photography which is agreed with the Bride & Groom before the big day. I bring the schedule along with me to make sure no important photographs are missed. The Schedule will include any important guests (other than the wedding party) that you wish to have photographs with, along with any special requests. Anything goes!!
Here are a few of my favourite images from some of my recent weddings to give you an idea of what kind of images to expect from your big day, from the morning preparations through to the ceremony and romantic images, finishing off with the speeches.

BRIDAL PREP IN THE MORNING
This is often my favourite part of the day. I will arrive a couple a couple of hours before the ceremony while the Bride and her girls are in the throes of getting ready. I will capture images of you having your hair and make up done, as well as capturing the 'details' such as the wedding shoes, flowers, perfume, jewellery etc. If time permits I will stay until the Bride is in her dress and capture that 'first look'
I plan to arrive at the Wedding Venue around 45 minutes before the ceremony begins to capture images of the Groom and his Groomsmen. I will take some traditional shots as well as lots of fun shots. I like to make sure the guys actually enjoy having their photographs taken!! You can see from the images below that they are all fun and relaxed.
THE WEDDING CEREMONY
Before the ceremony I like to get a photograph with the Bride and her Father arriving, or whoever is giving the Bride away. Then I will nip into the ceremony room to await the Brides arrival, and take photographs throughout the ceremony from lots of different angles, ensuring I am never in your face.
If you are getting married in a church I will not take photographs during prayers. I will also check with the minister or priest if photographs are allowed during the ceremony itself as some religious establishments do not allow this. Weather permitting I will get a group photograph of all the guests outside immediately after the ceremony.
THE BRIDAL PARTY
After the family group photographs comes the fun!! I will get a mixture of traditional and fun photographs of your bridal party all together. You can see from the selection of images below that I try to make this a really fun experience to allow me to capture lots of smiles and natural reactions. By this time of day everyone is more relaxed and ready to let their hair down, and this is when the magic happens!
THE ROMANTIC PHOTOGRAPHS
At this point I will send everyone back inside except the Bride and Groom. By this time you will both be relaxed and (hopefully) enjoying having your photographs taken, as these are the most important ones of the day, just the two of you as a married couple. Again, I keep my photographs as natural as possible, but I will still offer direction throughout so that you both always look your best for the camera. I have lots of tricks up my sleeve to make sure this goes as smoothly as possible, capturing the very best images.
