I am a 24 year old nature lover, my favourite season is Autumn. Everyone who knows me knows I love the autumn greens, oranges and browns... these colours inspired my love for rustic/earthy weddings!
I live in a little town called Teignmouth, which overlooks beautiful rolling hills and the River Teign. I love walking to the local pubs and cafes and seeing the locals and their furry friends!
My favourite hobbies are going for walks at national parks or along Devon's beautiful beaches, watching documentaries and maybe a little bit of shopping!
My drink of choice has to be a classic hot cocoa! I am a hater of coffee but hot cocoa is my favourite and just makes me feel like a big kid!
My guilty pleasure has got to be binge watching Netflix, especially Friends! I also love a good documentary series that I can just relax myself into.
I have visited well over 20 countries and still counting! Every vacation I have (after the wedding season of course!) I always look to travel somewhere new and learn all about their culture, taste their foods and enjoy some relaxation with my partner, Ben!
What I Love Most About My Job
Meeting new couples is such a lovely feeling...seeing your excitement about planning your big day, hearing your beautiful stories of how you found each other and got engaged.
From meeting to then the pre-wedding shoot, visiting a treasured location and just being in the moment... capturing the little details of a couple that show your personalities as a whole. These first meetings are great ways to get to know each other but your personalities really unfold on your wedding day... the preparation with family and friends, vowing to spend your lives together and embracing each other with the first kiss like no one else is around. This is what I love to be a part of.
To put it simply, I love the emotions that unfold before my lens. From initially meeting you, all the way to the final song on your wedding day, I live for the natural love that comes from yourselves as a couple and your family and friends that have joined to celebrate your marriage.
How I Work
You will come to find out that I am an extremely organised person... a lot of people nickname me Monica from Friends as I just love making sure everything is perfect for you and done to the best of my ability!
My aim is to capture moments in your wedding day that even you did not notice, the way your soon-to-be husband/wife looks at you from afar, the granny that wells up as she sees you walking down the aisle. All these little moments create your magical wedding day and that is something I always aim to achieve.
Throughout most of the day you will not see me, as I want to make sure the precious parts of your wedding day are completely natural and unique.
I never direct people to pose for photos apart from the family group photos or when your on the dance floor to make some great final laughs!
I want you to have the same experience all my couples have had!
If you would like me to tell your story, then come and say hello and get your wedding date in my calendar before it's too late!
