Romsey Abbey wedding photographer


Why choose Romsey Abbey for your church wedding

As a professional wedding photographer who knows Romsey Abbey very well indeed – I’m also a long-standing member of the Abbey Choir – I’m pleased to say that you’ve made an inspired choice for your church wedding. As you walk up the aisle, the vista of the lofty nave and the stained glass at the east end will take your breath away. Its grandeur means I can create especially unforgettable images for you, both inside and out, on your wedding day.

How your Abbey wedding unfolds in photos

Your wedding day starts with having your hair and make-up done, either at home or in a local hotel. I’ll join you there, taking candid shots discretely while your stylists enhance your natural beauty. This is when I also take detail shots of your shoes, jewellery, dress and wedding stationery. My second photographer, which I recommend for Abbey weddings, can capture preparations wherever they’re getting ready, too.

Unlike a hotel or barn wedding, getting married at the Abbey gives you the opportunity to enjoy a ride in a vintage limousine, right up to its North Porch. I’ll be there to capture your arrival and that unforgettable walk up the nave to the sounds of the great organ.

After you’ve greeted your groom at the head of the nave, your marriage service begins. Hymns and readings intersperse your vows, exchange of rings and first kiss. If you book the choir, they will sing an anthem while you sign the register.

Your time in the Abbey concludes with prayers and a blessing at the high altar before you both walk down the nave to a joyful organ voluntary amid the smiles of all your family and friends.

Outside the Abbey, I’ll take photos of you and your guests before we all depart for your reception venue.

Coverage by me continues at your reception venue with photographs of your arrival and welcome drinks, followed by formal family portraits.

After your wedding breakfast, I return to photograph the smiles, tears and laughter evoked by your speeches. Then I’ll whisk the two of you away for a few minutes to capture romantic portraits of just the two of you that you’ll treasure.

After you’ve cut your cake, it’s time for your first dance. Which song means most to you? I click away through these set-pieces to ensure I capture all the meaningful moments, and continue as you and your guests enjoy yourself beneath the disco lights. At a suitable moment, I say my goodbyes to you, leaving you to enjoy the rest of your evening and the intimacy of the bridal suite.

Within a month, you’ll receive a beautiful gallery of photographs from me that will bring golden memories flooding back for years to come of your wedding day.

Why choose me

With a portfolio of beautiful images, features in blogs and magazines and five years of wedding photography experience, my abiity to take photographs you'll love is a given. Glowing reviews from past clients often mention how easy I am to get on with and full-day coverage starts from just £995.

My business is built on three guiding principles that, I hope, resonate with you. 

You're the hero

Your wedding is all about you, your family and friends, not me. I'm there to serve you by chronicling your day in beautiful photographs without being intrusive or imposing my will on you. So for example, if you decide you'd rather stay talking to your friends rather than coming outside with for romantic portraits of the two of you, I'll respect your choice. 

Keep it simple

Organising your wedding is probably going to be stressful at times, so I make everything to do with photography as simple for you as I can. You can pay online and make all your arrangements with me by email if you wish – and if you have a question at any point, you're always welcome to contact me.

This matters

In a small way, I hope my photos of your wedding help to cement your marriage. By looking back at them in the current years, they'll bring the memories flooding back, and help you to remember your special day, all the people who supported you and what first drew you both together. That's why I take my responsibilities as seriously as you have a right to expect.
