“But I believe in love,

and I know that you do too”

“So keep your candles burning,

make a journey bright and pure”

“That you’ll keep returning,

always and evermore, into my arms”

Nick Cave ‘Into my arms’

Real, relaxed wedding photography

You know the stuff, the hugs and handshakes. The ugly crying face. Your nan squeezing your hand. You and your other half beaming at each other, marvelling at the fact you just got married. The good stuff.

Pre-Weddings

Mytton & Mermaid Wedding – Natalie & Ricky

Sometimes weddings have an obvious identifier that makes them stand out; sometimes it's a colour scheme or a particular theme. Natalie and Ricky's identifier? GIN! And lots of it. From the tables named after their favourite gins, to the never ending gin cocktails and...

The Bringewood Wedding – Kesia & Ash

This is up there as possibly one of the wettest weddings I think I've ever shot. It also happens to be one of the most romantic. Kesia and Ash were friends for ages before actually becoming a couple; When I asked them how they got together, they explained they were on...

Albright Hussey Wedding – Mel & Mark

Some weddings are all singing, all dancing, full on BIG weddings. Mel and Mark's wedding day definitely felt like a BIG wedding. From the country manor house venue, the entourage of bridesmaids and groomsmen, the epic surprise of singing waiters, all topped off with a...

Shropshire Tipi Wedding – Georgina & Matt

There's no place like home... Why pay for a reception venue when your back garden looks like this?! Matt's parents opened up their home and garden to friends and family for their sons big day and boy oh boy did it deliver! This was a half day of sorts for me as I...

Ironbridge Pre Shoot – Vicky & Rob

So blogging all the weddings, pre shoots and general photo related malarky I get up to has gone slightly awry this year, but fear not, I'll blog everything eventually, especially over the Winter months when the actual shooting slows down. So best foot forward, here's...

Attingham Park Pre Shoot – Keira & Jay

Keira & Jay. Somehow in between running a business, training to hopefully be a contender for Tokyo 2020 and renovating a house, this pair are also getting married. As you do. The big day is later this week at Iscoyd Park in the Shropshire countryside so now is...

Ludlow Pre Shoot: Charlotte & Ben

Charlotte and Ben met online, despite living just a stones throw away from each other and are planning a beautiful June wedding at one of my favourite venues, Delbury Hall this Saturday. To celebrate this, here's a little selection from their pre shoot. The proposal...

Ellie & Adam Pre Wedding Shoot

This is Ellie & Adam and they're getting hitched this Saturday at the stunning Delbury Hall near Ludlow. Like a lot of couples who book me, they wanted a bit of practise run before the big day to get used to having a camera pointed at them all day. So we headed to...

Anna & Kaveh

Absolutely brilliant – I can’t tell you how pleased we are with these photos. They capture the day perfectly and it was an absolute pleasure to have you with us on the day. Photographer / wedding planner supplying mints, deodorant and organising us. Would highly recommend you to anyone looking for a photographer.

Rhian & Alasdair

Nicola is my hero. She was an exceptional photographer for our wedding and captured the day as perfectly as we could have imagined. She floated behind the scenes grabbing candid shots of our guests and ourselves, fitting perfectly with our MO. Her images are priceless to us and retell the story of our wedding as if you were viewing it again in real time. For this we are eternally grateful. To go along with her talents she is a delightful woman was a pure joy to have.

Ally & Matt

Nicola was so accommodating and fit our wedding style perfectly. We live in Australia so a lot was arranged from a distance via email, but none of that was a problem. The quality of photos also exceeded our expectations, with Nicola capturing not only some lovely portrait shots but some beautiful spontaneous moments which we can look back to and relive our special day. Would recommend Nicola to anyone!
