    Amazing , everyone need Laura

    Laura is amazing and if you haven't booked your photographer yet ,then look no further. You won't be disappointed.
    From day one Laura was brilliant and on the our big day she was amazing, with us and all our guests. She captured our day perfectly with a mixture of traditional shots to the more natural. Laura is so much more than a photographer and she helped in so many way to make our wedding day so special.

    The Fairy Godmother of photography

    Laura stepped in when we were let down suddenly less than two months before our vow renewal in October 21. The day we spoke to her the sun came out after a dismal few days of panic and anxiety. We can’t believe we struck it so lucky and that she was available!!
    On the lead up to the day itself she was a trusted advisor and brought fun and laughter to our preparation chats. We were just sorry that they were online and not in the pub due to Covid.
    From the moment she arrived on our special day she was amazing. From the preparation in the morning where she kept us all calm, to the event itself where she marshalled and cajoled us through the photos even though at times it was reminiscent of herding cats - which I am totally convinced she could also do with ease! She was a breath of fresh air. I hate having my photo taken and she made it a joy.
    Her sole focus was on making our day special. Which she did in spades. The photos are amazing and have brought back memories of a golden day that will last forever in our memories. Laura captured so many images and those special moments we otherwise would have missed.
    If you are looking for a photographer who will stay in your heart and make your day magical then Laura is your girl.
    Laura - Andy and I were privileged to have had you as part of our day and will forever be grateful for that zoom call as you provided the magic that made the day sparkle.

    Wonderful photos of a lovely day!

    Laura has captured all the joy and fun we had in a very informal way. Staged group photos were kept to a minimum and so most of the pictures capture our guests in a relaxed, natural mood which was perfect. She then whisked us away to several more unusual locations for some very imaginative “Happy couple” pictures. Apart from the photography Laura was also on hand to give out advice, wisdom and support during the hours before the wedding helping to settle nerves and keep everyone smiling. It was like having another member of your family with you but without the additional drama! We couldn’t recommend her services highly enough. Thank you Laura.

    Amazing photographer and so much more!

    We cannot express highly enough how much we would recommend Laura as a wedding photographer!
    Laura was excellent from the moment we first spoke to her, arranged a fun-filled couple's shoot and put us at total ease with her warm and bubbly personality. She was fantastic in the build up to the wedding, offering countless tips and essentially acting like the wedding planner we never had. On the day itself Laura went completely above and beyond – she settled everyone’s nerves with her great sense of humour and was so friendly that guests presumed she was a family friend by how comfortable she made everyone feel. Laura also made sure we got a chance for some relaxed couple time together away from the crowd. And most importantly, her photos are absolutely beautiful and capture the day perfectly!
    Thank you Laura!

    Look no further!

    Laura was absolutely amazing, we would definitely recommend her to anyone! On the day Laura wasn’t just a photographer, she gave us support, advice and encouragement and was generally on hand to help out wherever she could. We had loads of compliments from our guests about how lovely, friendly and professional she was. We were delighted with our photos, they were so beautiful, exactly what we were hoping for and more. Laura is a total pro, you definitely need her at your wedding!

    Thanks again Laura we will be forever grateful. Hannah and Joe x

    If you're thinking of booking Laura for your wedding - DO!

    Laura was a dream to work with and made myself, my husband and all our guests feel relaxed and comfortable, feeling more like a friend than a photographer. When we had to postpone our wedding more than once (thank you COVID) Laura was understanding and supportive throughout which made a stressful situation so much easier.
    Laura also gave us the best piece of advice to have a second photographer which meant we have amazing pictures for each of us to see those moments prior to the ceremony we each missed out on the day.
    The pictures themselves are amazing and something we will treasure for years to come! Laura did research herself on locations and captured beautiful candid shots knowing the more relaxed feel we were looking for. The presentation box and slideshow were the perfect touch and made receiving our photos extra special.
    I could not recommend Laura highly enough.

    Personal, Friendly, Amazing!

    We cannot recommend Laura enough. We found Laura via our venue and after meeting her we knew that we wanted her to shoot our wedding. She is so friendly and really spent the time to get to know us to she understand what kind of photos we wanted. Everything felt so personal which was really important to us.
    On the day she was so efficient and knew exactly how to manage the guests and gather everyone together. She did everything with a smile and a sense of humour and got really good candid reactions from us and our guests.
    We had numerous guests rave about how great she was.
    When we saw the final photos we were beyond ecstatic! She managed to capture every element of the day and the quality of the photos is amazing.
    We would not hesitate to recommend Laura. She really does deserve being awarded one of the best wedding photographers by Hitched and you will not be disappointed if you choose her.

    Making a great day even better!

    We hired Laura for both engagement photos and for our wedding day. She is a delight to work with and makes taking photos (which normally I do not like to do) an actual fun experience. The photos turned out lovely - would definitely recommend Laura!

    Brilliant!

    We would highly recommend Laura as an excellent wedding photographer. Laura's enthusiastic and warm personality helped make everyone at ease on the day and our guests remarked on how good she was. We are thrilled with the quality of our photos, and to top it off they were sent in a lovely gift box with some extra little goodies!

    More than a photographer!

    I don't even know where to begin with describing how amazing Laura was on our wedding day. Throughout the day she was not just a photographer, but also our "wedding guru" - she knew exactly what to do and when, and was always there for a bit of guidance (especially when my husband and I were a bit overwhelmed!) My family and I are normally a bit camera-shy, but Laura does just an incredible job of making you feel comfortable, and that shows in her photographs. While we were only married a couple weeks ago and have only gotten sneak peaks of the wedding photos, we also did an engagement shoot with Laura before the wedding. The photos were all gorgeous, natural, and we felt that Laura really understood us as a couple.

    Laura's fun, bubbly, and energetic personality brought so much joy to our wedding day - and we will be honest in saying that we felt a bit emotional saying goodbye to her when she packed up for the evening when the wedding was over. All of our wedding guests commented on what an incredibly hard worker and kind person Laura was, and she made everyone feel so at ease. We are so incredibly happy that we chose Laura to capture our big day!!

    Laura is absolutely amazing! Would 100% recommend

    Where do I even begin? Laura was absolutely amazing from start to finish. She is such an amazing photographer, going above and beyond to make sure she captures all your special moments and some breath taking photos.
    Laura is so friendly and just got on with all the guests, making it much easier for everyone to feel comfortable in front of the camera. My husband isn't photogenic, so I was slightly nervous about him on the big day but Laura made him feel so relaxed, she throws in a few jokes to help settle the nerves. We managed to have such a laugh, which is always important.
    Every single guest came up to me after the wedding to comment on how amazing the photographer was, and this was before we had even seen the photos!
    We couldn't believe our eyes when we saw the photos. The quality and editing was unbelievable. Managing to turn an old rusty gate, into a beautiful golden coloured gate, making the photos look so special. So many special touches, making every photo absolutely beautiful.
    We couldn't be happier with our photos.
    Laura's website is also very useful and easy to use, having access to all your photos, allowing you to download or even order them to be printed for you. Such a relief when you have so many people asking you for the photos! She also made us a beautiful slideshow of the day, could it get any more perfect than that?
    I would highly recommend Laura, 100% ! I will definitely be coming to her for any other photo shoots, she is simply AMAZING!

    Perfect part of our day!

    From the moment we reached out to have an initial call, we felt in safe hands. Laura was great at making us feel comfortable with being photographed and was incredibly personable and helpful throughout the whole process. She helped us enormously during a catch up just before our wedding when she guided us through an ideal timeline of the day. On the day itself, she was excellent at making us feel at ease and helped take some of the nerves away, especially on the car ride to the ceremony. We could not have asked for a more friendly, professional and fun person to join us on our day. Every single guest has raved about her and our day would not have been the same without her. On top of all of that, the pictures that we now have are better than we would ever have hoped for and we would 1000% recommend Laura to anyone for their big day!
