Hello, I’m Nicola,

Born in London, raised in the Midlands and now I live in Shropshire with my husband and our daughter.

When I’m not shooting people in love you can find me at home, probably drinking too much coffee, eating cake and watching a film.

My husband and I hold a lot of our conversations in film quotes. We’re kind of film geeks.

In no particular order, some of my favourite films are…

Groundhog Day, Goodfellas, The Lost Boys, The Karate Kid (the 1984 classic NOT the Jackie Chan one), Uncle Buck, Heat, The Crow, The Big Lebowski, National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, Airplane! St Elmo’s Fire, Mean Girls, The Departed and a 90’s sports film no one knows called The Cutting Edge. Groundhog Day.

Things that make me happy… Good coffee, chocolate Guinness cake, “Africa” by Toto, holidays in Padstow, the smell of fresh cut grass, bright nail polish, cheese on toast, jumpsuits, books by Gillian Flynn, and podcasts; ‘Ellie & Anna Have Issues’ and ‘The Rewatchables’ are my faves.

How I work.

First of all, I’m a hugger. I’m not awkward and I can make friends with most people. 

You will notice me at your wedding; I’m not going to be silently lurking in the bushes like a sniper. I will chat to your guests like they’re my own friends and family. I’ll happily attach buttonholes and hold the back of your dress if you need to step over a puddle. I’ll tell you if the clasp on your necklace is showing and I’ll get excited about shoes, jewellery and generally anything sparkly.

I will encourage your guests to take part in athletic confetti throwing. I’ll share my stash of emergency cereal bars if you get hangry. I will woop and cheer when you walk down the aisle as a married couple and I will cry if I see someone else crying.

I have been shooting weddings for ten years and I think it’s the best job in the world. If you can call it a job. It’s not like I’m down a mine is it?! I adore weddings and would love to hear about yours. Even if you haven’t got much detail yet, just start with the who, the where, the when and we’ll go from there.

Or even just start with your favourite film…
