Planning meeting

About a month before your wedding, let’s meet either on zoom or in person to go through the details of your day. So that I can try to use them on the day, I ask for the names of the key people in your wedding party. I also work out a timeline with you of what’s likely to be happening when. This maximises the likelihood – cooperation from your guests and the elements permitting – that I will capture the photos that you want.

Bridal preparations

Arriving a good couple of hours before your ceremony, coverage from me begins with behind-the-scenes photos of your bridal preparations. These candid photos capture all the nervous excitement – often prosecco-fuelled! – shared between you and your bridesmaids.

While your hair and make-up artists attend to your bridesmaids, I photograph details like your dress, shoes, jewellery, bouquet and wedding stationery.

When you're ready to get into your dress, I step out to take some photos of your venue and how it's been decorated for you – and also your groom if he’s getting ready there as well as you.

Before you walk up the aisle, I take portraits of you looking unforgettable in your amazing dress, with hair and make-up immaculate.

Your wedding ceremony and afterwards

If you're arriving from home, I photograph you stepping out of the car and take candid shots of you and and your bridesmaids getting into position. Then it's the moment: your walk up the aisle.

During your ceremony, I put my cameras on silent mode and take photographs without flash as discreetly as possible.

After you’ve signed the registers and walked down the aisle together, it’s time for your confetti throw. For best results, look up, smile a lot and kiss half-way through!

My husband and I could not recommend Dom enough as a wedding photographer. Dom played a huge role in our day, ensuring he captured all of the special moments whilst making our guests feel completely comfortable.

During the afternoon

Your photos of family and friends are really important as a family record. Time and your guests’ patience permitting, I’m happy to take as many groups as you wish, followed by some some portraits nearby of just the two of you.

Before guests take their seats, I photograph the space set up for your wedding breakfast, so you have a record of all the florals and details. To applause from guests, you make your grand entrance.

Speeches can take place before or afterwards as you prefer. In case it matters to you, tables will look more pristine in photos if the speeches take place beforehand.

Into the evening

It’s time for the two of you to enjoy some time alone with each other, as I spirit the two of you away for your romantic portraits. You’ll spend most of you time holding hands, embracing and kissing. I rarely ask you to look at the camera!

Once your evening guests have arrived, it’s time to cut your cake. Your first dance usually follows straight on – maybe you’re having a live band? – and your friends quickly join you.

With these photographs taken, I will usually say my farewells and leave you to enjoy the rest of your evening. But if you are doing fun things immediately afterwards, like a bouquet toss, off-camera flash portraits, a sparkler finale or even fireworks, I’m happy to stay on for a short while.

After your wedding

You’ll receive half a dozen edited sneak peeks the next day to share with family and friends.

My editing process involves making an initial selection from the photos I take at an eight-hour wedding. This is further whittled down during the editing process. Photos with promise go through exposure adjustments, colour corrections, distortion removal and cropping. This ensures you receive well-lit, balanced compositions with pleasing colours and flattering skin tones.

I remove dust spots and some background distractions if practical, like Fire Exit signs. When needed, I use Photoshop to remove larger distractions and ensure key people in important photos are looking the right way.

As a rule, for every hour I spend taking photos at a wedding, I will spend a further two or three hours refining them. I will never send you unedited wedding photos. 

You should receive your edited photos within a month of your wedding, first in an online gallery and then as a digital download.

Is all this the experience and refined style of photographs that you’d like for your wedding? Why not take a moment to check if I’m free on your date?

    Engagement portrait shoot

    Let’s meet at a pretty location near you. This would be a great opportunity for us to get to know each other properly, and for you and your partner to get comfortable in front of the camera. Afterwards, I’ll send you 50 or so photographs that you can share on social media, and print if you wish.

    Second photographer

    Booking a second photographer through me gives you coverage of your groom and his supporters getting ready. Then you’ll get alternative angles during your cermony, and additional candid photos and informal groups of guests througout the rest of the day. This all results in approx. 200 extra photos of your wedding edited by me in my fine-art style.
