Tell us a bit about yourself and your company
I’m a wedding photographer shooting weddings across the UK and abroad. I offer a very natural and honest approach to capture the emotions and spontaneous moments of the day in the most artistic way I can. Telling stories is what I love to do and with my unobtrusive approach, I ensure that the couples that I work with accept me as part of their big day.

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.
A friendly face who works to achieve very natural and relaxed photography, which ultimately ‘tells the story’ of your wedding day (including the moments that you may actually have missed yourselves).
My approach is very relaxed. At times I slink in to the background to document what is going on around me….and at other times (typically during the couples portraits) I work directly with my couples to achieve beautiful but genuine images of them together, as a married couple. I really take time to get to know my couples as its really key that they feel at ease with me and in front of the lens. I work to capture expressions and moments that are real and authentic – this is really key. As we chat and joke, I am constantly watching the light, the image composition and the angle in which I’m shooting, to ensure that the final images are polished and flattering – as well as natural.
This breathtaking vow renewal comes to us from Amber Leach of Liberty Pearl Photography, based in Devon, England! Here’s Amber to tell us more:
This beautifully elegant renewal of vows at the stunning coastal venue Boho Cornwall captures the elegance, tranquility and romance of this Country House by the sea with it’s wild and magical setting on the edge of the Cornish moors. Kat & Ross were one of our first couples to marry at BoHo. We witnessed their vows and hosted their wedding and have kept in touch ever since.
This gorgeous UK wedding comes to us from Annelie Eddy Photography. We just love the elegant venue and all the romantic details! Here’s Annelie to tell us more:
Em and Neil got married at their local church in Ealing, London UK with a wedding reception at the elegant Ham House, a 17th century National Trust property set on the banks of the River Thames. The guests gathered for the wedding breakfast in a beautifully decorated marquee. There were pretty pastel coloured lampshades hanging from the ceiling and sailing knots formed part of the table centre pieces to give credit to Neil’s passion for sailing. Em and Neil love cheese and opted for a cheese cake, which was decorated with stunning summer flowers.
Hello! I’m Kayleigh Adams, a professional full-time wedding and portrait photographer based in The Cotswolds, UK. I am 24-years-old, a lover of tea, Polaroids, fresh flowers and ‘pretty things’! I grow to love what I do more and more each day and I feel truly blessed to have such a wonderful job. I am a natural light photographer, and I really do appreciate the time, thought and effort that my couples put in to make their wedding day perfect. I work calmly, discreetly and professionally to ensure that the bride, groom, as well as all of their guests, are completely at ease throughout the day. I am there to capture each wedding day story as it unfolds; the emotions, the colors, the expressions and the memories. My wedding photography allows my couples to re-live their special day over and over again. For most of the day, I’m creatively documenting everything as it happens and my couples probably won’t even notice me much! When it comes to the couple portraits, I make sure that they are kept completely relaxed and there is no awkward posing involved, I’ll generally just go on a short walk with the bride and groom, and capture them interacting.
The wedding took place in Farnham, Surrey, just west of London. It was special as two families met for the first time, one side Armenian Christian and the other Pakistani Muslim. The bride wore a gothic white dress made by her mother back in 1978 along with a rhinestone and chain waistcoat with a heavily beaded net train.
Today’s charming real wedding, brought to us by Martin Makowski Photography, is full of sweet details and warm smiles! Here’s Pete and Jenny to tell us more:
We were set up on a blind date by 2 of our best friends. We just met for a casual coffee in town one Saturday afternoon. We immediately got on well and enjoyed each other’s company. Within a month we were ‘officially’ dating and just short of 2 years later Pete proposed.
This wonderful travel themed wedding comes to us from Matt Selby Photography, based in Nottingham, England! Here’s Matt to tell us more:
Travelling the world is a big part of Amy & Paul’s lives and they had incorporated the travel theme into their wedding, complete with an atlas table plan, hand crafted travel themed centre pieces and a stylish suitcase wedding cake!
I’ve been a photographer since picking up my first camera back in high school and spending hours in the darkroom. After high school I travelled extensively throughout Asia (with my camera of course!) and discovered a love of taking portraits which focused on the human interaction. I moved to London, UK in 2008 and became a studio photographer. I started shooting weddings as a primary photographer in 2013.

I had been a staff photographer at a large advertising studio until 1989. My background shooting matter up until that period had been anything from Cheese to shiny red Italian sports cars, virtually everything was shot on a Sinar 5×4 I guess everyday was different and exciting, new ideas new concepts, all very stimulating.
