Where do I begin with this wedding? I met Harry and Hayley for coffee and we instantly connected and when it came to their wedding day which happened to be the same day as the royal wedding, it just felt easy. Their wedding took place at the stunning Whitsand Bay Fort in Cornwall and because the weather was so fabulous, the ceremony took place outside in the pagoda overlooking the cornish sea.
The day started very relaxed, it was nice to be able to see the bride and groom both before the ceremony both being close together! Hayley had a stunning dress from Wed2b in Exeter which actually had two looks which I absolutely loved, talk about making the most out of a dress! Their flowers were absolutely beautiful and I have never seen so many beautiful buttonholes ever…The weather was amazing all day, we had yet another beautiful cornish sunset to take some pictures and these two felt and looked like royalty all day.
Thank you both for letting me part of your amazing wedding day, I wish you both happiness in your future together!

This was my first wedding at Kingston Estate and I fell in love with it straight away. This venue is insanely beautiful, it has the most beautiful gardens and just check out their white bridal suite. I was in heaven!
Alex and Laura had their wedding in a sweet little church down the road and came back for their reception with champagne and canapes in the courtyard, the sun was shining and there was so many adorable children. Laura eventually had them all blowing bubbles around her which made some cute pictures. After dinner and the speeches there was a good opportunity to whisk the couple to enjoy the gardens nearing sunset, which is just my favourite part of a wedding.
A truly memorable day, congratulations Laura and Alex. I cannot wait to return to this beautiful venue!

I met this two after finding their advert in Plymouth College of Art and was so happy they decided to ask me to capture their beautiful wedding day in Tavistock. The weather had been a little unpredictable in the run up but the sun managed to stay out for most of the day. They were married in the epic St Eustachius Church which followed into a reception at the Town Hall. For my first Tavistock wedding, I was not disappointed the town has the most amazing buildings which really shows the character of this little town.
With ice creams, bow ties, two wedding dresses and a beautiful couple sunset shoot on the moors, Esther and Tariq, it has been an absolute pleasure to have met you both.
Here are some memories from your perfect little town wedding…

I can only begin to express how I feel about 2017 after the most epic year, from my very first couples to the last couples I feel truly blessed to be a wedding photographer. A career choice did not come easy to me and it was exactly this time last year that photography just clicked in my life. I made a new years resolution of trying to become not only known for my photography but establish myself as a wedding photographer and for my style, and for once I can say yes! I actually stuck to a new years resolution and everything came true and more…
Thank you for all the support from my family, friends, so many people in the industry who have given me the courage to keep going and to my partner who despite everything has stuck by me continually pushing me further. And lastly to all my beautiful couples whose amazing weddings I have captured this year, to all the couples who have booked me for 2018, I am so excited for this year ahead it is going to be busy and amazing I can feel it!
So here is a toast to my 2017 couples and some of my favourites snaps from the year….
This next autumn wedding took place at the couple’s own cottage in Devon which backed onto some glorious farmland which was obviously the perfect location for a reception. The styling for this wedding was just amazing so it was really hard to stop taking detail pictures constantly! I am really starting to appreciate just how lucky I am to be living in what I believe to be the best and most versatile parts of the country with such amazing landscapes and venues to capture.
So here is Becky and Adam’s beautiful sunny autumn wedding that was literally just on their doorstep…enjoy!
I had the pleasure of assisting the lovely Freckle Photography in September and captured the most colourful autumn themed weddings in Devon.

I am so incredibly proud and excited to share that I am a finalist in the South West Wedding Awards as a ‘New Wedding Business’, this is an amazing opportunity for so many local business’ to just get their names out there and hopefully network and collaborate on future projects.
