If that sounds good, we should talk…

You’re probably planning a fun, relaxed wedding that incorporates your personality into it. You’re going to embrace the day (and each other) and smile until your cheeks ache from sheer joy. Whether your wedding is a small elopement or a mass gathering, or a bit in between, it’s my absolute pleasure to photograph people in love. Maybe you’re having a country church ceremony followed by a garden reception – I adore those! Or perhaps you’re hosting your wedding day one of the many beautiful Shropshire wedding venues, I blooming love those too! Having photographed almost 300 weddings now I have been fortunate to capture weddings at so many gorgeous venues like Stanford Farm, Walcot Hall, Pimhill Barn, Rhyse Farm, High Grosvenor House, plus I’ve been in countless fields with marquees, yurts and tipi’s. Weddings are my happy place.

Thank you for doing such a brilliant job on the day, so many people commented on how great you were, thank you again for everything.

So, do you just do weddings in Shropshire?

The website name was picked way back in 2011 and whilst I may not love it that much these days, the amount of SEO that has gone into it over that time is too precious to give it up. Now I know that it might be a business no-no to be super niche, but here goes; I photograph weddings in Shropshire and the nearby surrounding areas like Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Staffordshire only. That means if you’re getting married in Manchester or London or Dubai or Santorini, I wish you all the best but I’m not for you. I love being able to live and work in the same area, as it means I know a boat load of other great local suppliers to rave to you about, and I am lucky enough to be recommended at several local venues. It also means I’m not going to need to stay in a premier inn the night before your big day nor risk getting stuck in a lengthy traffic jam as I’m rarely more than an hour from home. 

My favourite things about weddings are…

Anything that is real and authentic makes me a very happy photographer.

I am happiest in a field with tents and tipis, or in the garden of a family home, or in a rustic barn in the countryside. Fairy lights, fresh flowers, tiny sentimental details, and I will forever ooh and aah over gorgeous shoes.  

TikTok trends aren’t for me; I get it, I see the appeal but I want something more genuine. It’s the people who make a wedding; whether that’s the Nan who goes rogue with the confetti, or when your best mate, who’s not usually a crier, bawls their eyes out during your ceremony.

I love being in the room when parents see their son or daughter for the first time in their wedding outfits. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve cried at this moment. It also makes me happy when you over order on the confetti, have great live music, and prioritise food over chair covers.

Oh, and if your wedding has a dog, I will fuss it and will likely offer to walk it for you while you eat dinner.
