wedding

Sian & Connor- The Plough at Leigh, Kent

Now do you want to see two people who love each other to the moon and back? Well, keep on scrolling…

I met Connor, the groom, when I was about 16/17 years old. So we are talking a decade ago give or take a few months. We used to work together and we spent many summer holidays working at a kids farm! When Connor messaged me and asked me to be their wedding photographer I was beyond delighted and how could I say no! I felt so honoured to be part of their wedding day, it was amazing to see someone I know well getting married to the woman of his dreams.

People travelled far and wide for their wedding and they made their day so special with plenty of homemade details which made the venue even more beautiful than it already is. The venue itself is nestled in the Kentish countryside and it’s traditional pub is what gives it its charm. There were plenty of laughs and a few dodgy dance moves but most of all it was just one massive knees up. Gosh it was a lovely day.

Thank you for letting me be a part of your wedding day and for having me on your amazing journey!

Emily & Adam- The Grange Country House, Middlesex

This December wedding did not fail to impress. It was the right mix of glamour and fun with a hint of Christmas time sparkle. I met Emily whilst studying photography at uni and we were friends of friends so I was super chuffed when she asked me to be her wedding photographer. Prior to their wedding I also took photos of their son when he was a newborn so it just felt right to carry on the celebrations as a team.

They made their day so relaxed and full of love and laughter. The venue was truly beautiful and the various rooms meant that even thought it was raining we were able to get loads of different couple shots. It for sure did not put a dampener on their day. I’ve never met a couple who have had this much in common, they literally finished off each other sentences. It was a pleasure to be capturing their special day and to catch a glimpse of their feelings for each other. There is a whole lot of love between these two.

Thank you for letting us be a part of your wedding day and for having me on your amazing journey!

What Makes Me Award Winning

Obviously this is self explanatory BUT yes I have won an award for my wedding photography and I am super proud of it and I want to share it with everyone!

After 4 years of hard work on my business I was delighted to be a finalist for the Muddy Stilettos, Kent's Best Photographer awards. I had a lot of support to get me there and I am so thankful for everyone who voted for me. Sadly I did not win but to be a finalist in the first ever awards I was nominated for made me feel great and gave me such a confidence boost. Thank you Muddy Stilettos. Fingers crossed for next year!

Now on to the award I won....I can proudly call myself Global Wedding Awards Wedding Photographer of the Year 2018-Tunbridge Wells. This award came as I huge shock to me and I still do not know who nominated me. So if you happen to read this and it was you, then thank you so much! I was asked to fill in a questionnaire about myself and my business which was sent off to a panel of judges along with my work and I was later announced as the winner! YAY!

I have put everything into my business and it really means a lot to me that someone has taken the time to nominate me. It's a tough old life being a self-employed photographer with a lot of competition around but I am beyond excited and chuffed to have won this award. Pat on the back for me and a big big thank you to whoever nominated me and also a huge thank you to Lux Life Magazine who run the awards. It really is the best type of motivation and confidence boost you can get!

3 Most Favourite Wedding Photos

Hiya!

Today I want to share with you my 3 most favourite wedding photos I have taken to date. I love each image for totally different reasons and I want to share them with you as they all have a special place in my heart. 

Photo No.1

This image melts my heart every time I see it. Yes it might not be the most 'traditional' wedding photo and yes I am aware the groom is in jeans BUT this photo is bursting with the most amount of love I have ever experienced. People don't usually get why I love this photo as much as I do but it is all down to the couples story. Long story short....these 2 beautiful people live in Manhattan and one afternoon they got married in City Hall. They then had to have another 'wedding' as the family were all so jealous they couldn't be there! Understandably! The setting was beautiful, Chaple Down Vineyards in Kent and the couple were even more beautiful. Inside as well as out! The photo itself speaks volumes about how happy and content they are as a couple and this is a prime example of if you know the story behind the photo makes it more fabulous and heart warming! You guys are awesome!

Photo No.2

Now this photo is all about the use of colour! I have an unhealthy obsession with bright colours within my images and this bride is giving me enough colour to last a lifetime! I love the neutral tones of the surrounding guests and church wall and it contrasts so well against the brides beautiful bouquet and headband which are exceptional. The pure excitement of the bride also makes my heart melt and this image is what I would describe as pure happiness. I feel as if I have captured such a happy moment in time and the colours pop and make it eye catching.

Photo No.3

Right lets go a little bit more traditional here for the finale.....usually I am not a massive fan of black and white photos but this shot lends itself perfectly to it. This image is classical and timeless and I have frozen the relaxed atmosphere within this image. This wedding itself was the most chilled out and calm I've ever done and this image also captures a moment that not even the bride is aware of. It's tranquil and shows bridal prep at its finest which is a very important part of the day that not all brides think about. It's a time to be with your girls and this NEEDS to be documented. 

Hiya!

Hiya world!

I’m a young, female, award-winning photographer based in Kent and the South East. I specialise mainly in weddings and lifestyle photography. BUT I am also working on taking over the world of school photos in preschools and nurseries. 

Since graduating with a diploma in Foundation Art and Design and also a degree in BA Hons Photography I have developed my interest, experience and expertise. Photography has been a passion of mine since school where I studied it as one of my A Levels. So after many years of studying I thought why not start my own business….but we will come back to that adventure another time!

My style of photography is timeless and more on the documentary side with also a very relaxed feel to my images. Every time I shoot I want people to be having fun and to feel relaxed around me. I feel privileged to be invited to record the important moments in families' histories and I love capturing special moments in time. 

So all there is left to say at the moment is watch this space…
