Wedding Photography

This is your wedding day, focus on your partner and leave the photos to me.

Get in touch

With my calm presence and gentle guidance, I’ll capture the most beautiful expressions and memories for you to enjoy forever. 



Your wedding day is as unique as you are.

I help guide you from a couple in love to husband and wife with my creative and documentary photography skills.

By getting to know you and what you want from your wedding day, you can count on me to help the day run smoothly. Nothing is too much trouble - I’ve even been known to shoo away the odd gardener out of the background. In short, I’ll go to any length to get the perfect photo!

Contact me


Friday - Saturday - Sunday - Bank Holidays .......WHATS INCLUDED...


Let’s get to know each other.  I want you to feel completely comfortable with my presence on your big day.

So, let's have a couple of relaxed get-togethers to chat about your plans, and maybe where you’ve been on holiday, your cat, your favourite show, where you met or whatever else helps me to get to know you better.

This is where I start getting an idea of who you really are and begin planning how to capture that essence in your images.

If you can travel to Carlisle I LOVE meeting clients face-to-face and getting to see your love for each other in real-time! If not we can chat via phone/zoom/email where we can work through all the details of your big day. 

No question is too big, too small, too silly, or too irrelevant, bring it all, I am always at the end of the phone or email.

Capturing your natural essence begins here. 

A pre wedding shoot is the best way to get to know each other a little more. It can also help calm the heart, that beats a little faster every time someone mentions photos. If you, like almost everyone, are worrying most about getting your photo taken on your wedding day, this will help prove that having your picture taken isn’t as terrifying as you think. 

Think of it like a few friends going for a walk, chatting and snapping. 

Everyone who comes to me has some anxiety big or small around having their picture taken, it's a universal thing, you’re not alone. Getting some snaps before the big day really helps couples feel more relaxed and at ease, which equals more natural images, and that is what we’re aiming for.

*As a complimentary extra, pre-wedding shoots are subject to availability and usually booked in midweek.

On the day

I’ll be there capturing those little moments of magic right from when the bride and her besties are getting ready through to Mr & Mrs sitting down for their first meal as husband and wife. 

Capturing the laughter, inappropriate jokes and the true sentiment woven into the speeches is included if they are before the meal.

Additional Extras

Evening Coverage - £250

Longer coverage to capture your first dance as you both sway to the song that means so much to you, then catching the beginning of the party - Grandad almost throwing a hip out, and all the people you love busting moves & grooves on the dance floor.

(These are secretly some of my favourite moments to photograph, the wine is flowing, the inhibitions disappearing and everyone has usually forgotten I am there by this point!)

Albums - from £450

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE print your photographs! As amazingly convenient as it is to have all of your memories in digital format, honestly nothing beats seeing your images in print, believe me. Despite the best intentions to create your own albums after your wedding, I know how busy life gets. And so for those who think they just won't get around to it or for those who just don't know where to start, I can offer beautiful hand crafted Fine Art albums form Folio, a Yorkshire based company who I have partnered with for many years and whose albums are just stunning - take a look at this blog post to learn some more.

Prints - FROM £15.00

Prints to hang on your wall or send to your Grandma. Available to order in two sizes, direct from your gallery. Prints are displayed in a simple black mount and ready to use as they are or slip into your choice of frame.
