Preparing For Your Wedding
Beforehand we will discuss your wedding plans, ideas, and what you want from your photographs. This is ideally done face-to-face but there’s always Skype or telephone if needs be! If this is a bit early to talk about any firm plans you are welcome to get in touch at any time to bring me up to date!
I will prepare as thoroughly as possible to get to know your choice of venue, including when possible a visit beforehand to scout out the perfect spots for both group and personal photos. You don’t want me wasting time on the day itself!
For a short time only I am also offering a FREE Engagement or Trash The Dress shoot with each booking!
An Engagement shoot gives you the opportunity to get used to myself and to being in front of the camera before the wedding, as well as providing a lovely set of images for you to use for wedding invitations or save-the-date cards, other wedding bits and pieces, or simply for your own pleasure.
A Trash The Dress shoot is the perfect excuse to get dressed up in all your finery once more, and it doesn’t even have to damage the dress! It can be as simple as a walk through the woods or along a beach, or as messy and colourful as throwing around paint and food. You will come away with some lovely photographs of you both in a more relaxed and fun setting, away from a hoard of guests!

The Big Day
Starting early with the bridal preparations I cover details both large and small throughout the day, from the groomsmen’s arrival at the church through to speeches and the first dance.
I specifically aim to incorporate your own personal touches, from your choice of venue to your hand made table decorations.It’s the small things that really make the wedding your own.
But I won’t get in the way of your party! There will be no posing of guests, setting up fake “moments”, or generally holding up the fun. The photos will be as candid and unintrusive as possible.
I will supply you with a USB stick of approximately 250 high quality photographs, both in high print-ready resolution and low resolution ideal for social media. I will also provide a one time download link for your images so you don’t need to wait for the postman!
Why only around 250 images? Unlike other photographers I will not send you 3 copies of each image taken a split second apart. Your images will be specifically curated into the best possible representation of your wedding day so you will waste minimal time removing half of the images before sharing with friends and family.
I also provide a selection of wonderfully designed Thank You cards featuring one of your best images, printed and ready to send. You will be involved in the design process of course, selecting the design options that best suit your taste and wedding day.
There are no limitations on how you use your images, you can print as large and as frequently as you wish, as well as uploading to all your favorite social media. These are, after all, your memories.
