Charlotte Atherton Photography is based in Liskeard, Cornwall, offering wedding services to couples.

There's probably a lot on your mind at the moment. Organizing the venue, your dress, your flowers and, of course, your photographer.

You want to document your day the best way possible, because it's the pictures that will bring back those special memories, it's the pictures that will be left to look back on treasure forever

I specialise in creative, stylish and relaxed wedding photography. As a documentary wedding photographer, my images follow the natural flow of your day. Unobtrusive and full of beautiful light.

For me, it's important to allow people to be themselves and enjoy the day with natural smiles and laughter, as they always make the best photos.

I aim to capture what鈥檚 there, what鈥檚 happening, while at the same time, doing creative shots and providing you with stunning images that you will treasure.

I adore the small moments in between just as much as the rest, and nothing about your wedding day will go unnoticed.

This is your day to shine, so smile and enjoy it while I capture the story of your day.

I understand booking a wedding photographer can be quite a daunting task. There are so many options, especially in this part of the country, so investing in a photographer that you love and who remembers it鈥檚 your wedding day, not a photoshoot for their portfolio, is important.

I work with a team of professionals and can provide you with a second Photographer, Videography and aerial footage to ensure that your day is captured in the way you want.

Just fantastic!

We hired Charlotte to photograph our small, intimate wedding we had in Mawgan Porth, Cornwall. From the very beginning, Charlotte was very happy to get an idea of what you wanted and provide the information without being pushy, she was always happy to have a chat if you wanted to check in and make sure everything was OK. On the day, she arrived early, was very organised and professional and had several back up plans in case something were to happen. She had various photo ideas and was happy to take any additional photo's you wanted. We received our proofs within days and our final gallery within a week! I highly recommend Charlotte and cannot fault her professionalism or organisation!

Wedding photos

I booked Charlotte as my photographer for my big day, me and my husband were very nervous, Charlotte arrived on time to start the photos off me getting ready and walking to the isle, Charlotte took us to some amazing sights in the area to get the best photos, what I loved the most was we were not made to pose, all photos were natural what we both loved, thank you again Charlotte for the amazing time we had and amazing photos

Absolutely amazing

Charlotte saved our day after our photographer cancelled 2 days before our wedding. Charlotte is honestly so amazing! Went above and beyond for us. Nothing was to much for Charlotte. Thank you so so much for capturing our day so perfectly. Had so many lovely comments about you. Highly recommend Charlotte to anyone wanting a photographer. Again thank you 鉂わ笍

A fabulous individual with a great eye.

Charlotte was brilliant before, during, and after our wedding. She helped with advice on other suppliers in the region, and was a great support to my bride on the morning of the event. Afterwards, communication remained great (including about entirely unrelated topics). I highly recommend Charlotte for your wedding.

Incredible photographer- could not have asked for more.

Charlotte was genuinely incredible- I cannot say enough good things about her.
We booked Charlotte fairly last minute (in the wedding world) as we were going on holiday to Cornwall and decided to elope and get married while we were there.
I was a completely clueless bride but I knew the second we spoke that it was meant to be, she knew more about what I wanted (needed) at my wedding than I did, instantly put me at ease and I knew I鈥檇 made the right decision there and then to spend the money on a photographer for our day despite only having a small handful of guests.
Charlotte was only ever a message away when I had questions (photography related or not) and offered help and recommendations with other parts of the wedding too.
She was professional to a T but within minutes I felt like we鈥檇 been friends for years. We didn鈥檛 have a big venue, getting ready was in a tiny little fisherman鈥檚 cottage we鈥檇 already booked before booking wedding (the lighting was awful) and the day was windy and a little dreary (the price you pay for getting married on a random Monday at the end of October) but Charlotte brought the whole day to life in the pictures she took and truly added some magic.
She guided us when we needed and was guided by us and our families also but just always seemed to be in the right place at the right time. Covered every base of photos we could鈥檝e possibly wanted from completely natural, action, posed, family shots and captured our day beyond perfectly.
We got our pictures back so quickly and they are amazing. We will truly treasure our wedding photographs and be forever grateful to Charlotte and each time I look at even just one I am transported back to the magic of our incredible day.
Charlotte was more than just a wedding photographer to us and we feel so lucky we lucked out to have her and I know any other couples lucky to have her would feel exactly the same.

Elopement photographer

When we explained to Charlotte that we were secretly eloping to Cornwall, and that we were looking for a photographer who would be willing to walk cliff paths with us, and not mind getting sandy and windswept, we were surprised with how quickly she said yes. Charlotte and videogropher Georgie took the brief and absolutely ran with it, managing to do quite a lot of homework in the run up to our wedding date, and the results we have absolutely look stunning. We asked for a beach, we had one; we wanted a cliff top path, we had one; we wanted our wedding breakfast to be burgers, we had them. Everything was amazing and spot on. Thank you, both, a hundred times over.

Easy and fun

From the start Charlotte was very good with communication.
She arrived on time and ready to start the day immediately
We had a fab fun filled 4 hours with Charlotte and captured lots of different images at the front of the hotel and the beach, which was so much fun.
Charlotte went out of her way to try and sort a few extras for me. It wasn鈥檛 possible but she tried, which I thought was so lovely.
It was a relaxed day with Charlotte, just what me and Dan wanted.
Within a day we had a glimpse of some of the photos.
I can鈥檛 wait to see the rest.
Thankyou for being part of our special, most amazing day EVER !!
Love from the Yorkshire bride and family and the the groom from Bolton 馃槀馃槀

Absolutely amazing!

From start to finish, booking Charlotte to our actual wedding day, everything was so easy. Charlotte is a really good communicator and really understands how stressful wedding planning can be. She put my mind to rest at all times and anytime i needed a question answering she did not take long to respond. Charlottes photography skills are superior to any i have seen. Her style is very elegant and she covered every angle/suggestion that i requested. We receieved a few sneak peak photos within a couple days of the wedding which was lovely to take away with us on honeymoon. To our surprise we then receieved the entire album within 3 weeks of the wedding day. This was super fast and really impressed us. The photos we receieved are fantastic quality and so beautifully taken by Charlotte. I would 100% recommend Charlotte to any bride looking for that wow factor. Charlotte is also a very special person and so welcome at our wedding with her beautiful personality. Thank you Charlotte for making our day and future memories so special

Absolutely fantastic

Can't recommend Charlotte enough, from beginning to end she has been very responsive with questions etc, on the day of our wedding (apart from the personal photos) we didn't even realise she was there and now have hundreds of stunning photos to remember our day, as a couple we don't take many photos of ourselves but Charlotte knew exactly what to do and got some beautiful shots for our personal photoshoot, her candid photography is exactly what we wanted for our day, she also manage to find us a videographer very last minute as we weren't sure if we wanted one or not, Andy worked alongside Charlotte (again, we didn't know he was there) he is absolutely lovely and had loads of different ideas to put together our wedding video, we have just watched the preview of this and it is truly beautiful, we can't wait to see the full video, both Charlotte and Andy didn't hesitate when I mentioned that my dress designer has a spinning competition with a trophy and got some wonderful photos and footage so that I can hopefully win 馃馃徎
We have had nothing but compliments from anyone we've shown the photos to and can't thank Charlotte (and Andy) enough for everything they've done for us to make our day so special.
Thankyou so much! 鉂わ笍鉂わ笍鉂わ笍

Amazing photographer!

We heard about Charlotte through a family friend and after seeing her photos, we booked her straight away. Charlotte is everything you want on your wedding day. Calming, professional, invisible and so reassuring. We didn't even notice her there most of the time but the photos she has captured are beautiful! She was brillaint at organising everyone for individual and group photos and made sure she got all the photos we asked for (even adding more in on the day).

We are not people who like taking photos, yet Charlotte made us both feel so at ease and captured a lot of natural photos which we asked for. We can not fault Charlotte or the photos she has taken! I would recommend Charlotte to any brides to be if you want someone who is amazing at their job and will go above and beyond for you! Thank you Charlotte, we are so happy we booked you for our wedding! 鉂わ笍

5 star photography!!

Absolutely amazing! We needed a photographer last minute and Charlotte was able to accommodate all of our needs. Stunning pictures throughout and really thoughtful of our children as part of our special day. Extremely professional and friendly, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone! Even carried the bride across sharp stones when she was barefoot from the beach!!! 5* all round, thank you for helping to make our day special.

Fantastic, passionate and produced great quality photographs!

We hired Charlotte for our wedding in September 2023. From the start the communication was great and was able to work with our requests without any issues.

You can tell she is passionate about her job and the service she delivers. On the day she turned up with a colleague as she wasn鈥檛 feeling well and didn鈥檛 want to let us down half way through the day. That is service and care for you!! They both work great together and I was impressed on how much they wanted to get the best shots.

Charlotte was very relaxed, passionate about her craft and delivered some fantastic photos for us! It was great to see someone who cared about what she does and does it with such enthusiasm!

It was a delight having Charlotte as our photographer and I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a wedding photographer!
