Full Description
At the end of the day, the day is all about the both of you! My sole purpose on the day is to capture the moments and the emotions that radiate from you both, and your guests. To as much of an extent as possible I'm usually unseen so that the photos captured are natural and genuine. After the ceremony I will take you off for some pictures of just the two of you, this is nice for a little quiet time for you and means we capture some beautiful images for you to display in your home and to look back on in anniversaries to come. I do try and split this to include some images in the evening as well just so you have a little variety and you don't feel like you are spending your whole day having photos taken. Every wedding is unique and therefore what a couple wants from their photographer can vary greatly, I have three collections on offer all of which offer up to 10 hours coverage (generally this will allow from bridal prep to first dance) and your images in digital format, hand edited by me. You can also book a pre wedding session to capture some images of the two of you in the months running up to the wedding, this is a great way for us to get to know each other and are perfect to use on your save the dates and some even use them in the wedding itself. I have carefully chosen my album provider to offer only the best quality to showcase your beautiful wedding photos, these albums are hand crafted in Portugal and can be customised to reflect key details from your wedding day such as colours and textures. I can also offer a smaller half day collection so if you are marrying on a weekday or in winter with your ceremony being later in the day just contact me and we can put something together for you.

Alice and I wished to express how brilliant it was
Wow! That slideshow preview is awesome, thank you. We are here cooing away at it (And still laughing at my Arabian Nights hat 😝) Alice and I wished to express how brilliant it was to have you, Tom and Bori at our wedding and what lovely people you are. You made us and our respective family, friends and associated guests feel at ease yet marshalled some rather chaotic situations with consummate professionalism. We had many comments from people about how well organised you were and were always patient with the proceedings, thank you. As an aside, we hope our marriage will be as fun as yours and Tom’s clearly is 😊 The photos look great, we cannot wait to see the full gallery – and have a fun chat!

We just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for helping make our wedding day extra special-not just by taking our photos but engaging with our guests as well! We (the guests, Chris, and I) really appreciated that and we felt that the whole process of wedding photography was more personal :)

What is your most memorable wedding?

A wedding in Ireland for many many reasons, but primarily because of the love that the guests had for the couple, the wit and humour of the priest and most importantly the Bride & Groom, they were so in sync and so so perfect for each other, the day was filled with laughter and love and we are still in touch to this day. I just photographed their first family shoot with their new arrival in fact!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Remember, IT IS YOUR DAY! Try not to be lead by your family & friends into having a hodgepodge of other peoples idea of the perfect day. Be rooted in your wants and fancies, after all you are the ones getting married!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

One bridesmaid hand embroidered blankets with initials of the newly weds to keep them warm during their winter wedding. Such a thoughtful touch!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

It's all about white umbrellas!
