About

A multi-award winning photographer with 20 years experience, creating compelling, natural images.

Services Offered

Multi-award winning photographer with twenty years of experience photographing weddings from barns to castles throughout the UK.


Choosing your wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions that you will make when planning your wedding. My style combines authentic, natural reportage capture with a touch of classical. I aim to let the day flow with just gentle direction when it's needed.

For most weddings I have a female assistant so that I can move around freely and have an extra pair of hands when helping gather guests for those important group shots that everyone wants and generally don't want to do! My aim is to make this a fun experience, still allowing plenty of time for you to mingle with your guests while I continue to capture your wedding discreetly for those compelling and authentic photographs for you to enjoy forever.

For your favourite memories of the day. I offer a range of styles and finishes of albums and it’s up to you as to how much you wish to invest. I personally design each album as well as personally editing and preparing all your images from your wedding in my signature style. All weddings include a password protected online gallery to share as well as highlights within a few days and all your high resolution edited images in my signature style on my branded USB. Albums, thank you cards, framed photographs, engagement/pre-wedding shoots are all offered.

    Wow. Just wow.

    Wow. Just wow. Wendy's photos speak for themselves as they captured our day perfectly. We cannot thank you enough for how amazing the photos are.

    We chose Wendy as we wanted a photographer that was able to add a relaxing feel to our photos and encapsulate us and our wedding - she did that and more.

    Wendy was absolutely fantastic from start to finish (and even beyond). Responsive on communications beforehand, running through the shots we wanted, rapid at turning around a good 100 photos within 5 days of the wedding and the remaining 500 being with us within 3 weeks.

    On the day, Wendy was fantastic and put us both at ease, ensured we got the photos that we had agreed beforehand but was also flexible when we wanted to add a few more on the day.

    For our wedding, Wendy was supported brilliantly by Georgie who was also fantastic in getting the perfect shots.

    Wendy, thank you so much for being absolutely brill.

    A professional and outstanding experience!

    Working with Wendy has been an absolute pleasure from start to finish. We waited almost 3 years to get married due to Covid-19 and throughout all that time she stayed in touch, stayed positive and stayed on our team. You need cheerleaders in your wedding and Wendy was certainly one of ours. We were blown away by her sample photographs and I can honestly say that the entire experience was professional, straightforward and nothing but helpful and joyful at every stage. Not only are all her photography packages of the highest quality and priced right, but more importantly her presence at our wedding was a totally positive one. All of our guests commented on how great Wendy is and we replied - "we know!!" every time. She was in contact with us in the days leading up to the wedding to double check timings and schedule and she was super organised on the day but calm and in control - exactly the right personality you want in an outstanding photographer on what can be a nerve-wracking day! We are in awe of how our photos turned out. Wendy has a knack for capturing the moment just before a photo looks staged so the result is flattering but totally candid and natural. We let Wendy know which guests were very important to us and she made sure to photograph them and we gave her a list of formal shots we wanted and they were all orchestrated without a hitch. Wendy brought an assistant with her on the day (Josephine) and she too was fun and relaxed but still totally committed to capturing our day perfectly. I cannot thank Wendy (and Josephine!) enough for the memorable and happy part they played in our very special day.

    Hire Wendy as your photographer; you absolutely will not regret it.

    Memories that will last a lifetime

    I cannot recommend Wendy enough x Wendy was absolutely brilliant from the first meeting to the aftercare she has given us. As soon as I saw her photos I knew I needed her to take our wedding photos- in fact when we had to rearrange due to Covid making sure Wendy could do the date was top priority x Wendy completely put us all at ease (and I hate having my photo taken) and as I knew she would she has captured our day fantastically xx I absolutely adore all the photos and will treasure them forever x I’m already trying to find another excuse to book Wendy x

    Pandemic wedding

    We were lucky enough to have Wendy as our wedding photographer during the COVID-19 pandemic! In the lead up to the wedding we had contact over phone and email and I was blown away by how friendly and excited she was about our event. She had lots of ideas and was really helpful with reminding me of little things I had forgotten to organise! We were nervous about government restrictions changing again after our wedding was cancelled in May but every time we talked, she was so positive about how we could make it a great day whatever, that she massively put us at ease. It was lovely to have her at our wedding day, we immediately all felt really comfortable around her and she is unbelievably talented, she captured the emotions of the day perfectly. We have beautiful photos thanks to her, including some special portrait-type photos and very sweet photos of the children who attended. We are looking forward to booking her for photos in the future. We recommend her to anyone who wants gorgeous, natural photos of their day – thank you Wendy!

    Captured beautiful memories for us to treasure

    Wendy photographed our wedding and we are so pleased with the memories of the day she has captured for us. She is very professional, friendly and easy to work with. We all felt very relaxed in her company. I can't thank her enough all of her hard work.

    Picture Perfect !

    Wendy was brilliant from the first moment I emailed her, right to the end. We originally booked Wendy back in 2019. We met with Wendy in her studio where she took the time to get to know us and find out what we were looking for, overall we left feeling confident in our choose of photographer (Spoiler: the photos didn't disappoint). We were due to be married July 2020 but sadly had to postpone due to covid, we then postponed our July 2021 wedding and finally married November 2021! Wendy was amazing when it came to keeping in touch. By our third date, timing for the day had changed meaning the day ended up being far longer than originally planned, Wendy was super flexible and accommodating to this which really helped with the stress levels! On the day of the wedding, Wendy and Bronwen were incredible, Myself and my Husband are quite camera shy but Wendy and Bronwen were amazing at supporting us and helping us achieve the best photo. The two of them were so incredibly lovely and I couldn't have asked for a more lovely duo. By the evening, Wendy and Bronwen were dragged around by my guests for photos, again they were very accommodating to this! Since the wedding I've had many compliments on Wendy and Bronwen. Thank you both!

    Wonderful, caring and exceptional photographer

    Wendy was our wedding photographer and from start to finish she was a total dream to work with. It didn't feel like hard work at all, she is a friendly, caring and passionate photographer who fits seamlessly into your day and evening, never looking out of place, and allows your special day to run smoothly - whilst capturing the most stunning memories which will last forever. Would totally recommend!

    A memorable experience

    Due to Covid 19 restrictions everything was discussed and booked online or by telephone; we did not meet until the day itself at the ceremony. Although there had been no opportunity to meet prior to the wedding day, I was confident that Wendy understood our preference for a lighthearted and informal approach, and we are delighted with the results.

    Highly recommend

    We hired Wendy to do our wedding and she has been amazing through every process. You instantly feel like you’ve known Wendy for years and she is a joy to work with. The pictures all came out amazing and we can’t wait to receive our beautiful wedding album. I would recommend Wendy to everyone.

    Incredible snapshots of our wedding day

    Wendy went above and beyond taking the most amazing photos that really did capture the spirit of our wedding last July! Wendy was friendly and professional and great at gathering and instructing our guests to photos whilst seamlessly blending in. We love all of the photos and it was almost an impossible task whittling down photos for the album. Would definitely recommend Wendy.

    Perfect photography for a perfect day

    We could not thank Wendy enough for the stunning photographs that she took on our wedding day. We briefed that we wanted natural and candid shots and she absolutely delivered. Such a sweet and caring individual who throughout the day, went out of her way to ensure that we were comfortable but also faded into the background so we didn't even notice some of the shots were being taken. Thank you so much Wendy.

    Highly recommended!!

    Wendy did a beautiful job of capturing our wedding, especially given the difficult circumstances of non stop rain on the day! The group photos and pictures of the key moments in the day are lovely but it was also a wonderful surprise to find that Wendy had captured lots of moments that we weren't aware of. Wendy herself was a pleasure to deal with - organised and authoritative on the day but also very friendly and personable. I couldn't recommend her enough!

    Fantastic wedding photographer

    We absolutely loved having Wendy as our wedding photographer. From the moment we met her we were blown away with her warmth and experience - she immediately made us feel at ease. During our wedding day she managed to get intimate pictures without us even noticing, she really blended in behind the scenes. When we received our wedding album we were blown away with how beautiful the photographs were. My husband and I actually cried when we looked through them for the first time...they were so beautiful! She has a very classic and elegant style, which we love and we had lots of amazing comments about how stunning the photos were. Thank you so much Wendy!

    What can we say…Wendy you are AMAZING!

    We got married in June last year at the beautiful Monkton Barn, where Wendy has done an incredible job of capturing our special day. The attention to detail and the skill Wendy has behind a camera lens is outstanding especially when faced with all weathers from dark grey skies, rain showers to beautiful blue skies and blazing sun our photographs just pop with all the different elements and colours! We were truly overwhelmed with the photographs Wendy had taken and couldn’t wait to start the hard part of choosing which to go in our album – which is faultless, the quality and presentation is perfect. During the day Wendy was an absolute dream, keeping our guests in line & together for our requested photographs, to blending in and photographing so many natural moments it was lovely to look back at all our family & friends enjoying themselves, it is so true what they say a photograph speaks a thousand words!
    We can’t thank you enough Wendy for capturing all those magical moments of one of the best days of our lives xx

    Friendly, patient and brilliantly efficient

    We wanted our wedding to be a relaxed and fun affair and Wendy immediately understood our wishes for the day and captured the celebratory nature perfectly. Despite us having an energetic 18-month-old daughter in tow and limited time to pose for shots, Wendy was friendly, patient and brilliantly efficient. She was never intrusive, put everyone at ease and we are so grateful that she was part of our special day. Her beautiful images capture so many subtle and touching details that only a photographer of her calibre would notice and many of our family and friends have also commented on just how special her photographs are. We cannot recommend Wendy highly enough.
