How much are the packages?
I offer four wedding packages. Each package includes all the photos taken fully edited, on a personalised USB, a complimentary pre-wedding photoshoot and an online gallery.
Package 1: Ceremony Only

Perfect for small weddings on a smaller budget and covers the ceremony and posed photos after the ceremony.
Package 2: Half Day
4 hrs: £450
Four hours coverage, can be used for getting ready photos & ceremony or ceremony & cocktails coverage.#
Package 3: Full Day
8 hrs: £750
The most popular package, full day coverage of eight hours, great for getting ready until first dance.
Package 4: Start to finish
Entire wedding: £900
The full day covered from getting ready til everyone goes home!
How far in advance should I book?
I take bookings up to three years in advance. Popular summer dates book up incredibly quickly, so if you’re getting married on a weekend May-September it’s important to book as soon as possible to ensure the date is free.
How far do you travel?
As far as you need! I’ve done weddings all over the UK. Depending on location and package booked, a charge is payable for my travel and hotel if necessary.
What does the pre-wedding photoshoot entail?
This is a complimentary session before your wedding. You can use this for engagement photos or to update your family photos, in the studio or on a location of your choice. Please note this is complimentary and up to the couple to organise prior to the wedding: there is not a cash alternative if the free session is not taken.
How long do photos take to receive after the wedding?
A sneak peek is posted on the Facebook page within 48 hours of the wedding, and then the wait time is around 4-6 weeks. In busier periods, the wait time will be the full 6 weeks due to the busy wedding season: sometimes I am doing up to four weddings a week.
How does payment work?
There is a £100 non-refundable deposit payable in order to hold your date. The remaining balance is payable four weeks before the wedding. However, you are welcome to pay in instalments in the run up to the big day.
How do the posed and “traditional” wedding photos work?
After the ceremony, I like to give the new couple ten minutes to relax! Some weddings have cocktails straight after the ceremony, some you’ll just have family and friends all coming over to congratulate you and it can seem a little overwhelming. After everything has calmed down a little, we move on to the traditional posed photos. I tend to start with a big group photo of all the guests, then move on to smaller groups. After all the posed group photos are done, I love to be able to have as much time as possible with just the bride and groom to take some portraits of you both as a couple. After these are done, I like to say posing is finished and you can relax some! (Well, maybe after the speeches!) I have a set list of groupings that are most popular, you can add sets to these or remove some, it’s great to have the list to ensure that we don’t miss any photos.
Do you bring an assistant to weddings?
Typically no, I work alone. I do have an option in my packages to add on a second photographer, which some couples prefer. I don’t tend to bring an assistant unless I’m training someone. 99% of weddings I’ve done (nearly 200!) I work alone, and I love it :)
I’m ready to book! How do we do that?!
Great! You can book online or come into the studio. A contract is viewable prior to the deposit being paid. I offer free no obligation consultations in the studio.
