Magical and pure brilliance!

Where do we even begin?! Nicola was absolutely incredible from start to finish. Her communication and dedication was inspiring and the quality of photos she produced, impeccable. Nicola made us feel so at ease every step of the way, and by the time the wedding day came we felt so comfortable with her capturing those special moments. Especially considering we had never actually met in person until the wedding day. Nicola was fabulous at making the photos personal to us and really bringing out our characters. The photo’s literally caught the best sunshine in an otherwise very rainy day! We cannot recommend Nicola enough, we love the photos beyond belief and the way she captures emotion is magical! Thank you Nicola, it was a delight to have you photograph our Wedding Day, especially by someone who so clearly, loves what she does!

Relaxed and unobstrusive Photographer

Nicola is quite simply amazing! We had a really relaxed day planned (no formal sit down, no speeches etc) and she totally understood what we wanted and delivered. Both of us were quite nervous about being in front of a camera but after the practice shoot, where she gave us all the tips and put us completely at ease, it wasn't an issue and we were relaxed. The couple shots were spread out in short bursts so we felt we barely missed any of the day with our guests. Nicola mingled in for some great shots and we barely noticed she was there (in a good way!) When needed though (confetti shot) she was super efficient at corralling everyone and giving them direction. The result is an album that genuinely captures the whole vibe and atmosphere of the day. She even caught some absolutely brilliant shots we would never have thought of. The results are genuinely spellbinding - beautiful framing, fantastic lighting, and where we somehow look gorgeously natural and at ease. Definitely using some magic!
If you want a photographer who will listen to want you want, put you at ease, guide you through the process, capture everything expertly and give you incredible photos to treasure then I cannot recommend Nicola highly enough!

Warm, Authentic Photography

We found Nicola through our wedding venue, The Bull Hotel in Wrotham, as she was one of the recommended suppliers. We fell in love with her portfolio immediately, and we both knew that she was the right photographer for us.

She has a unique ability to capture the feelings of a moment and create warm, authentic images. We both can’t stop looking at them and she’s created a beautiful album that we will cherish forever.

She made us feel at ease throughout the whole process, from booking, to regular catch ups, via email and on the phone.

On the day she was exceptional. She has such a friendly, open approach and she worked seamlessly with all our other suppliers.

Thank you, Nicola, for everything!

Beautiful photos, lovely photographer!

My husband and I are pretty shy, and I don’t think either of us had a posed photo taken since we graduated (this is a long time ago!). Nicola made us feel really comfortable throughout the day, which I think is really important for a photographer! And of course, the photographs from the day were excellent.

More then we could of ever imagined

Nicola wow what can we say. You have been such an amazing part of the lead up to our wedding and also our wedding day. You captured everything our day was about and we cannot thank you enough. The pictures are honestly incredible we can't stop looking through them, we really are so so lucky to have found such an amazing photographer for our day. What Nicola creates with her work is something we haven't seen with other photographers you get that sense of feeling coming through when looking at her work. You deserve so much recognition for what you do because you are incredible. Thank you so much again! Mr and Mrs Pearson x
