Bridal Preparation

One of our favourite parts of the day is photographing the bridal preparation. We love being with our Bride as she gets ready with her close friends and family. The hair, the makeup, the dress, the shoes, the prosecco… we capture it all. It’s a happy time and our pictures tell the story of our bride as she shares this special part of her day with the people she loves. There are funny moments, sometime sad ones remembering loved ones who are not with us and very special ones such as when the Bride comes in with her dress on and they all see her for the first time. Tears flow but there is joy and our day is just beginning.


The Ceremony

We just love capturing these moments during the vows. We all get nervous and that can mean fits of laughter, or maybe a tear or two. Tissues are on hand so dont worry!  You’ll look through your photographs and be right back there, remembering the day and exactly how you both felt. There are not many moments in life as important as taking your Vows and saying “I Do” to the one you love, and its a real privilege for us to keep those few seconds in time safe for you.


The Venue

We see so many beautiful venues and  decor and we love those gorgeous little details. The beautiful flowers, the decorated chairs, the cake in all its splender and the special way you create gifts for your guests, its amazing how every wedding can be so different yet so incredibly wonderful.


Wedding Portraits

This part of our day very often just involves a walk and a chat, keeping things as natural and relaxed as possible. We make the best use of the light and surroundings to capture memories you will treasure. This is not a rushed time of the day but a time to relax. A time to  smile and  enjoy this moment togeather and maybe realize you are now MARRIED!


The Reception

Ah, the wedding breakfast. (Everyone loves food!) Depending on your chosen wedding package, we will stage the cutting of the cake and unobtrusively capture moments with you and your guests as you sit down to dinner.  Our full day wedding package includes those specials moments during your first dance together as a married couple (plus some hilarious ones!)
