A joy to work with.
My wife and I booked Lorna for our wedding in August 2021 and it was an excellent decision! From the first virtual meeting through to the engagement shoot and wedding itself, Lorna was a joy to work with. Neither of us are particularly comfortable in front of a camera but Lorna made us feel so at ease. On the wedding day she was brilliant, very calm and friendly, blending into the background so that we hardly noticed she was there. The full gallery of photos came through much quicker than expected and we are so pleased with them! Lorna captured all of the important moments brilliantly and so many other little ones that we would never have seen otherwise. We couldn't recommend Lorna highly enough.

She completely understood our vision
Lorna was excellent at communicating with us throughout the process and we knew exactly what to expect on the wedding day. She is very organised and put our minds at rest. She did a great job of taking photos unobtrusively and also getting good shots of nice little moments we would have otherwise missed. She completely understood our vision for a very relaxed and chilled-out day. Lots of guests were impressed by her friendly and professional approach. Her follow-up communications and service have been great. Thank you Lorna!

Friendly & Smiley
Lorna really captured the life and fun of the day whilst almost feeling like a bridesmaid (getting a bowl of water for the bouquets, passing messages to the groomsmen etc.) We loved how friendly and smiley she was. Highly recommend!!

Calm & Supportive
Lorna was so calm and supportive and made us feel very much at ease throughout the day, which was just perfect! Lots of our friends and family complemented her on how beautifully she worked with us to capture memories of our special day. We really appreciate it and we’re hugely impressed with the results!

100/10 can't recommend enough!
From what started as a photoshoot for my wife and I's engagement, we instantly knew we wanted Lorna to do the photography for our wedding. She has been fantastic all the way through with regular check ups, making sure we knew what we wanted the plan to be and always made time for us. If you are reading this and need to book a photographer then stop and book her now, it will be the (apart from getting married) best decision you can make. 100/10 can't recommend enough!

Lorna made us feel completely at ease.
Lorna made us feel completely at ease and took on board everything we were looking for in a wedding photographer. She is extremely professional and made the whole experience easy for us. Her help and guidance as to how the day would run took a massive weight off our shoulders, and we were able to enjoy the day knowing she was capturing all the special moments!

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

I think every wedding is special and unique in it's own way, but if I had to pick one, I think it would have to be an intimate wedding in Venice – it was just so relaxed and oh so romantic!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

relaxed, natural, authentic, heartfelt and beautiful

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

Start planning early to avoid that last minute stress, and if all doesn't go quite to plan on the day, go with the flow – most important is that you enjoy your special day being with the people you love the most.

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

Mini cactus wedding favours – they were just so cute, and I loved the idea that all the guests would have a living keepsake to take home with them.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I get it – choosing your wedding photographer is a big decision. So I always suggest first meeting up for a cuppa and a chat about your wedding plans to see if we click. This is also the best time for you to ask any questions, to see a sample album and discuss which of my wedding packages fits your needs best. This conversation can also happen via FaceTime or Skype – whatever is easiest for you. For more information about my approach, the booking process, wedding coverage and packages available, please get in touch and I will send you my brochure.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

I think every couple should schedule at least 30 minutes for shots of just the 2 of them. This is partly to give you time to relax into the shoot making for the best photos, but often this is the only time on your wedding day that you get time to yourselves. It's a really precious time.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

If you're getting married in Britain, then the chance of rain on your wedding day is pretty high, whatever the time of year. However, it's very rare it will rain all day long, so it will likely just mean that photo timings may need to change slightly, and when there's a break in the rain, we make a sudden dash for it. Failing that, there are usually doorways and other undercover areas that can be used instead. Mostly I find that with umbrellas and the right attitude you can still get some beautifully atmospheric and moody shots. Clear umbrellas are often very handy to have, and the bridal party may want to have a pair of wellies at the ready just in case, as well as towels to put down to avoid the worst of the puddles. Often wedding venues are well prepared for rainy days with umbrellas etc, but it's always a question worth asking when you visit them.

Describe how you got into photography.

My love for photography really goes hand in hand with my love for travel. I used to travel alone quite a lot for work, which gave me the perfect opportunity to go out and explore and lose myself in a city with my trusty camera in hand. Then in 2015 I got the chance to live in Vienna and work with a portrait photographer for a year. It was a wonderful experience, and while studio portrait photography wasn't quite my cuppa tea, it made me realise that I wanted to take my photography further. I truly got the wedding photography bug after photographing a few friend's weddings and I haven't looked back since!
