Hello, I’m Nicola,

I was born in London, raised in the Midlands and now live in Telford, Shropshire, not far from the oh so lovely Ironbridge.

I genuinely believe that “Africa” by Toto is the greatest song ever written.

My proudest parenting moment to date is our daughter singing along to “Rudie Can’t Fail” by The Clash. She also sings along to “Hey you, the rock steady crew”.

I can no longer stand the smell let alone the taste of Tequila after a works night out went awry. My tipple of choice is now gin or New Zealand Sauvingnon Blanc.

If you have a dog and I get to meet it, I will spend too long a time fussing it and talking to it as if it were a baby. Just sayin’.

You know those people who have had all kinds of exciting close encounters with celebrities? Yeah, I’m not one of them. I did once meet Lightening from 90’s TV show Gladiators. And my dad went to the same school as Ozzy Osbourne (my dad was the year below him). So no great stories, just awkward tenuous links of little to no importance. As you were.

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

My name at birth was Victoria but as my maiden name began with D my mom was advised against it otherwise my initials would of been VD. Good save, mom.

I talk with my hands a lot.

My husband and I hold a lot of our conversations in film quotes. Mostly 80’s ones.

I’m a homebody and don’t really enjoy travelling that much. I know, it’s like I’m not even a photographer, right? I’m happiest at home. With coffee. Did I mention cake? There’s always cake too. My house is basically bloody Nirvana.

Anyway, I have been photographing weddings since 2009 and would love to hear more about your plans. 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…
