Creative, Documentary Wedding Photography

I don’t just want to provide you with images that you love. I want you look over the photography from your wedding day and be transported back to it as it happened. Capturing the combination of things that made your day special to you in an honest and natural way.

I will be with capturing all of the usual shots – walking down the aisle, the vows, the speeches, cutting the cake. – but most of all, the moments that you don’t always get to see and might otherwise pass un-noticed. The parts that really make your day yours, capturing the personality and fun as it happens. I love to see people actually laughing and actually smiling. Everyone photographs much better when they don’t realise a picture is being taken.

In order to achieve my aims, it’s essential that I get to know you a little. Which is why I always conduct a face to face consultation to begin with. This is where we can sit down over a cup of tea (or wine if you prefer!) and really talk about your plans for the day.

I especially find my greatest work comes from those couples that we share a good rapport with, which is why it’s important to start our relationship early. One way to help can be a pre-wedding shoot. It gives us some time to get to know each other without the pressure of the big day, and helps you to feel more comfortable being in front of the camera.

From preparations to an hour after the first dance, I will be with you to capture everything I can. With the aim of providing you with a beautiful, yet meaningful record of your day.

“Gemma was brilliant to have with us through the day, most of the time we didn’t know she was there, so some of the photos are just so natural which is exactly what we wanted. She was even there to help get me in my dress when we were struggling!

I cannot thank Gemma enough for the day and everything that comes with it. To say I would highly recommend her is an understatement, we haven’t stopped hearing how much everyone loves the photos and how impressed they were with Gemma.”
