Full Description
I love everything to do with weddings, from my first contact with an excited Bride, who has so many things to plan, through to the wonderful day and follow up afterwards, designing and creating a beautiful wedding album for the Bride and Groom which we are all proud of and will hold treasured memories for the rest of their lives. Being involved in someone's wedding is one of the best jobs in the world and I feel truly priveleged to be part of the day. I am versatile in my photography styles and it is important for me to discuss with you, your expectations and the results you would like -no two weddings are the same and I want to know all about your wedding, what excites you about it and to allow me to see the day through your eyes so I can document your day as you wish to remember it. As an experienced wedding photographer with over 25 years in the business, I have gained a wealth of knowledge and have photographed at most of the beautiful venues within Cumbria , The Lake District, nationally and abroad.If you have any questions, please do contact me by email or telephone and I will be very happy to discuss your day- I look forward to hearing from you!

Over the moon
Andrew and I are absolutely over the moon with our wedding photographs taken by the lovely Rachel Winter. Would highly recommend her for both make-up and photography. She was not only professional she has a very calming approach which made us both feel really relaxed so we could thoroughly enjoy the day. Thank you Rachel!

Rachel was exceptionally professional in the run up to the wedding, on the day itself, and continues to support after the day! We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer, she tailored the day to exactly what we wanted and made us feel comfortable from the moment we met her. The end result of the photos are beautiful, natural photos that sum our day up perfectly. And she even came to rescue when I had a false eye lash emergency!! Thank you so much Rachel!

Describe how you got into photography.

I did an apprenticeship with a long standing photograpaher and went on all his weddings with him for a season. I didn't even touch a camera, I was learning how weddings work and timings to ensure the day ran smoothly so that when I did go behind the lens, I knew exactly where I should be and what I should be doing.
