About

On Hitched.co.uk since 2022

Last update: April 2024

Helping you to never forget the precious memories, the wild celebrations, and the intimate moments that make up your day.

Why choose me?

Planning a wedding can be stressful, but should be fun. From our first encounter I’ll make sure planning your wedding photography is as stress free as possible.

Coming from a background in photojounralism and documentary photography, I am used to capturing emotive moments as they play out. My aim when it comes to your wedding day is for you to feel totlaly at ease and able to enjoy your beautiful day, whilst still coming away with photographs you'll cherish for a life-time.

For me, there’s nothing more magical than getting wrapped up in your wedding day. I love a dance (shout-out to all the incredible wedding bands out there!) and can’t help but get stuck in on the dance floor at the end of the night - making for the most fun, authentic and energetic party photos!

Having worked alongside many couples whilst they plan and execute the most important day of their lives, I have a wealth of advice to give. From when’s the best time to sneak off for a couples shoot, to where’s the best spot to cut the cake - I’ve seen what works and what doesn’t and I’m always happy to share that with you.

Most importantly I know it’s your day and should be done your way. I can’t wait to hear the plans for your wedding, so don’t hesitate to contact me.

Gemma is awesome - book her!

Gemma took the time to understand what we were looking for: practically, who we needed photos of and how she would fit into the day and maintain the informal feel; and creatively, in terms of the vibe and energy we wanted on our special day.

We absolutely adored going through our photographs and reliving the day - Gemma perfectly captured the joy, fun and special moments of the day. Especially those more candid moments like walking down the road with our guests having cars beep in celebration!

No request was too much for Gemma and we thoroughly enjoyed having her at our wedding. She was discrete, made us feel comfortable being photographed and made sure she got the shots we all wanted - we can't thank her enough for capturing it all for us!

Beautiful 35mm photos

Gemma did a wonderful job photographing our wedding in September. We choose to have the day shot all on 35mm film with a mix of colour and black & white. The mix of candid photos and more formal portraits was exactly what we were looking for, and every shot was beautiful. Gemma's guidance leading up to the wedding and direction on the day was all really helpful and ensured everything went smoothly and we could fully relax. Thank you so much!
