ABOUT ME

London wedding photographer

Award winning London wedding photographer. Telling stories with an artistic eye for detail, capturing genuine emotion and unscripted moments.

 

“I am not dead; I am in Herne Bay” so wrote the artist Marcel Duchamp on a postcard to his friend in 1913. This corner of the East Kent coast does hold a certain appeal, and after living in London since the mid-nineties, I relocated here. I now live a stone’s throw from the beach with the two men in my life  –  my husband Steve, another London wedding photographer, and Ozzy the French bulldog. It’s a beautiful and inspiring place to live, particularly in winter when the beaches are empty and you can get a fireside seat in the pub.

 

Alongside photography, I love nothing more than a rummage through a junk shop (especially the ones in Ghent), a swim in the sea, and losing hours in the kitchen and the garden. I’m at my happiest on the beach at sunset with hot pizza, cold wine, and good company: J.M.W Turner said the skies here are the best in the world, and I’d have to agree.

 

I studied Fine Art and have always been drawn to photography. I’d photograph school friends on a little Olympus OM-10 film camera, then develop the films during my lunch break. I photographed my first wedding way back in 2003 (it was a disaster. Buy me a drink and I’ll tell you about it), then over the next few years I shot album covers, dabbled in birth photography, and was on the team that covered the 2005 Cannes Film Festival for French newspaper Le Monde. I gained qualifications at the London College of Communication, where I am now a visiting lecturer to the Graduate Diploma Photography students. The transition from doing the odd commercial job to being a full-time London wedding photographer wasn’t a great epiphany: I photographed a few friends’ weddings in 2007, they loved the pictures, recommended me to their friends and it snowballed from there. By 2009, I was photographing weddings full time.

 

 

 

 

Best Wedding Photographer in England – London Wedding Photographer

 

 

 

You’ll see from looking around my site that my approach to wedding photography is very natural and “hands-off”. Whether you want to call it documentary wedding photography, reportage wedding photography, or even wedding photojournalism, it all amounts to the same thing; I won’t stop any of the proceedings, set shots up, boss you around or ask anyone to pose for the camera. In short, you’ll barely know I’m there. This means you can enjoy the day fully knowing every precious moment is being captured. Read more about my approach to documentary wedding photography here.

 

 

In 2019 I shot my 350th wedding, so you can be assured that I have the experience to handle anything your wedding day throws at me! I’m proud to have won numerous awards from the world-renowned Wedding Photojournalist Association, and in 2016 was ranked as their top UK Wedding Photographer, coming 11th worldwide. In 2019, I was ranked once again as the UK’s top Wedding Photojournalist and came 9th worldwide. In late 2016, I won the awards for ”Best London Wedding Photographer”, and ”Best Wedding Photographer in England” in the national finals of The 2017 Wedding Industry Awards. The TWIA recognises and awards excellence in the wedding industry and is the only UK competition where you are judged not only on your photographs but by what your previous wedding couples say about you. You can read some comments from my lovely couples here.

 

From The Blog

Each time we go through them we seem to spot something else we didn't see the time before! The different layers of depth, detail, and composition are just brilliant. The way you shoot people is absolutely brilliant - we feel like you really capture the essence of everyone's character as we know them, but in addition, your eye also so effortlessly highlights so many fantastic textures and light details in other parts of the image as well which make them so rich.
