international, award winning, luxury wedding photography


Dear Client,

I send this letter to you both, wherever you are in the world, with thanks and warm wishes. I am grateful that we have connected, and the universe has brought us together. 

I want to tell you a few important things so that I can be of service to you in the best possible way.

The planning and preparation for each wedding I photograph can be considerable therefore I only work with a limited number of clients each year. 

Even if your wedding is very close, please get in touch. I still may be able to help you at short notice. 

Sometimes a client and a wedding photographer aren't a perfect match, and that's ok. Whether it's due to availability or budget, I will be able to recommend another supplier for you.

On the note of recommended suppliers, I have worked with some of the very best creatives in the wedding industry, it would be my pleasure to recommend some of them for your special day. 

I am not just your wedding photographer. I am here to assist you in any way that I can. If you have questions about your wedding, if you need help or advice, I am at your service. 

Wherever you decide to celebrate your wedding I will be there.
My weddings have taken me from Australia to Dubai and from mainland Europe to right here in the UK.

A destination wedding? I used to be a Flight Attendant I love to travel


Your investment will be matched by my own and my intention is to create a wedding collection that you treasure forever.

Choosing someone to photograph the biggest day of your life is a massive decision and I want to add value to your day that goes far beyond my role as your wedding photographer. 

We will discuss every aspect of your day and the ways in which I can help to make all your photographic dreams come true.

Every collection includes a password protected online gallery.
Prices for photo albums are available on request.

Prices start from £2575
