Full Description
Multi-award winning photographer with twenty years of experience photographing weddings from barns to castles throughout the UK. Choosing your wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions that you will make when planning your wedding. My style combines authentic, natural reportage capture with a touch of classical. I aim to let the day flow with just gentle direction when it's needed. For most weddings I have a female assistant so that I can move around freely and have an extra pair of hands when helping gather guests for those important group shots that everyone wants and generally don't want to do! My aim is to make this a fun experience, still allowing plenty of time for you to mingle with your guests while I continue to capture your wedding discreetly for those compelling and authentic photographs for you to enjoy forever. For your favourite memories of the day. I offer a range of styles and finishes of albums and it’s up to you as to how much you wish to invest. I personally design each album as well as personally editing and preparing all your images from your wedding in my signature style. All weddings include a password protected online gallery to share as well as highlights within a few days and all your high resolution edited images in my signature style on my branded USB. Albums, thank you cards, framed photographs, engagement/pre-wedding shoots are all offered.

Absolutely Wonderful
Wow. Just wow. Wendy's photos speak for theirselves as they captured our day perfectly. We cannot thank you enough for how amazing the photos are. We chose Wendy as we wanted a photographer that was able to add a relaxing feel to our photos and encapsulate us and our wedding - she did that and more. Wendy was absolutely fantastic from start to finish (and even beyond). Responsive on communications beforehand, running through the shots we wanted, rapid at turning around a good 100 photos within 5 days of the wedding and the remaining 500 being with us within 3 weeks. On the day, Wendy was fantastic and put us both at ease, ensured we got the photos that we had agreed beforehand but was also flexible when we wanted to add a few more on the day. For our wedding, Wendy was supported brilliantly by Georgie who was also fantastic in getting the perfect shots. Wendy, thank you so much for being absolutely brill.

Beautiful memories to treasure
Wendy photographed our wedding and we are so pleased with the memories of the day she has captured for us. She is very professional, friendly and easy to work with. We all felt very relaxed in her company. I can't thank her enough all of her hard work.

Picture Perfect!
Wendy was brilliant from the first moment I emailed her, right to the end. We originally booked Wendy back in 2019. We met with Wendy in her studio where she took the time to get to know us and find out what we were looking for, overall we left feeling confident in our choose of photographer (Spoiler: the photos didn't disappoint). We were due to be married July 2020 but sadly had to postpone due to covid, we then postponed our July 2021 wedding and finally married November 2021! Wendy was amazing when it came to keeping in touch. By our third date, timing for the day had changed meaning the day ended up being far longer than originally planned, Wendy was super flexible and accommodating to this which really helped with the stress levels! On the day of the wedding, Wendy and Bronwen were incredible, Myself and my Husband are quite camera shy but Wendy and Bronwen were amazing at supporting us and helping us achieve the best photo. The two of them were so incredibly lovely and I couldn't have asked for a more lovely duo. By the evening, Wendy and Bronwen were dragged around by my guests for photos, again they were very accommodating to this! Since the wedding I've had many compliments on Wendy and Bronwen. Thank you both!

Our dream photographer!
Wendy was our wedding photographer and from start to finish she was a total dream to work with. It didn't feel like hard work at all, she is a friendly, caring and passionate photographer who fits seamlessly into your day and evening, never looking out of place, and allows your special day to run smoothly - whilst capturing the most stunning memories which will last forever. Would totally recommend!

Highly professional, wonderful photos, great experience all round!
We hired Wendy to be our photographer for our wedding in September (2021), and right from the start of the process we found her very engaged and helpful in helping us decide what approach we wanted her to take on the big day. We agreed a mix of traditional posed family photos and more candid shots throughout the day would be best for us, and on the day Wendy and her assistant were very efficient and professional, making sure that they got all the 'big ticket' pictures that we were after as well as a whole range of other shots - several people have commented to us afterwards that they were amazed at the number of good photos Wendy managed to provide, given how quickly things were moving on the day! We were really happy with the photos Wendy sent us afterwards, and actually found it difficult to cut down from the full range to the ones we wanted in our album, as we liked so many of them! The album itself looked beautiful, with the photographs all perfectly clear and the album made of good-quality, solid-feeling materials - an excellent keepsake of our big day! Thanks Wendy!

A professional and outstanding experience!
Working with Wendy has been an absolute pleasure from start to finish. We waited almost 3 years to get married due to Covid-19 and throughout all that time she stayed in touch, stayed positive and stayed on our team. You need cheerleaders in your wedding and Wendy was certainly one of ours. We were blown away by her sample photographs and I can honestly say that the entire experience was professional, straightforward and nothing but helpful and joyful at every stage. Not only are all her photography packages of the highest quality and priced right, but more importantly her presence at our wedding was a totally positive one. All of our guests commented on how great Wendy is and we replied - "we know!!" every time. She was in contact with us in the days leading up to the wedding to double check timings and schedule and she was super organised on the day but calm and in control - exactly the right personality you want in an outstanding photographer on what can be a nerve-wracking day! We are in awe of how our photos turned out. Wendy has a knack for capturing the moment just before a photo looks staged so the result is flattering but totally candid and natural. We let Wendy know which guests were very important to us and she made sure to photograph them and we gave her a list of formal shots we wanted and they were all orchestrated without a hitch. Wendy brought an assistant with her on the day (Josephine) and she too was fun and relaxed but still totally committed to capturing our day perfectly. I cannot thank Wendy (and Josephine!) enough for the memorable and happy part they played in our very special day. Hire Wendy as your photographer; you absolutely will not regret it.

FAQ
(7)

What is your most memorable wedding?

I can't pick just one!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Creative, timeless, artistic, unobtrusive, warm.

What about your business are you most proud of?

I'm proud of having established my business 20 years ago and that I'm still as excited and inspired by photography as I was then. I've made wonderful friends through my business which has enhanced my life and that of my family - a wonderful career!

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

I can't think of a favourite. I often see wonderful imaginative and creative touches as couples don't feel constrained by tradition as they once did.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Couples either email me or telephone. Afterwards, we will often arrange a zoom call which we're all more accustomed to these days and has become the new norm! Couples are always welcome to come and see me in person and discuss their plans and see examples of my albums and work.

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

I do love confetti and of course the first kiss!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Don't worry about the weather, it's the one thing you have no control over. The rainy weddings I've photographed have also allowed for some creative, fun and evocative brolly shots!
