I am currently preparing Wendy and Simon’s wedding photographs for them to view in their online gallery. They married last month at a little church in Mappleton, Derbyshire and celebrated with their friends and family from all over the world at Callow Hall, one of my favourite ever venues. It is classically beautiful, extremely well managed and a pleasure to take photographs there. Wendy and Simon’s day was a moving and joyous occasion for everyone, including me.

When I edit wedding photographs I find myself smiling without realising it. My husband sometimes watches me from the other side of the room whilst I’m working and says I have a specific smile just for editing. And in each wedding collection there are the ones which make my face ache from smiling so much. This has to be one of my absolute favourites from Zanna and Simon’s wedding a couple of weekends ago at the bride’s grandparents’ home in Suffolk. Doesn’t Zanna look incredible in her vintage wedding dress? It’s from 1890, which makes it the oldest dress I have ever seen at a wedding.
This wedding was an amazing day and this photograph just about sums up to me how happy these two are to be married and why I love my job more than ever.
I think I’m going to get this printed and pop it up on my wall.
Rebecca and Simon contacted me excitedly after seeing and falling in love with Pip and James’ wedding photographs at their venue, Underley Grange in Cumbria. They had prepared themselves that I wouldn’t travel.
I love to travel with my work and since starting my wedding photography business in 2010 I have advertised that I travel nationwide and for destination weddings abroad. It is part of my philosophy. I am based in Southwell, the beautiful Minster town in Nottinghamshire, in the East Midlands, so naturally I photograph weddings in this county and the neighbouring Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Leicestershire. But I have photographed weddings from Scotland to the South of France and everywhere in between, which I think keeps my work looking fresh and different as I get to visit venues that I wouldn’t otherwise see. Whether to big cities like London and York or to the countryside of Cornwall, Sussex, the Cotswolds, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Lancashire, Cumbria and beyond, if your wedding is there, I will travel.
So if you like my work and wonder if I’ll travel, the answer is almost always yes with an exclamation point. And the best bit is, there are no extra costs to pay for weddings in the UK. I make a point of not charging for my travel and accommodation so it won’t cost you more. Your photography is an investment and if you book me I want it to be because you want me to be part of your day, even though I might live far away from you. This is my way of saying thank you.
