Beautiful, natural and creative wedding photography to perfectly capture your special day.
I love photographing weddings and feel immensely proud that over 300 amazing couples have entrusted me to capture the memories of their special day. I bring all that experience to your wedding. I know how to put you at ease if you’re nervous and I’m here to help every step of the way.
My photography is natural and beautiful with a modern, editorial style. I am passionate about bringing a relaxed approach while creating an amazing collection of images that brings back all the feelings and fun of your wedding day.
I love to capture the genuine fun, laughter, emotion and beauty of your wedding day and create a relaxed atmosphere so you don’t even know you are having your photo taken…even when it’s time for photos of the two of you! As well as photographing all the key moments of the day, I’m always watching for the small interactions. The little glances, the jokes shared, the nervous hand-holding. Things not always noticed, but images that will create the most amazing memory for you after the day.
I’m based in South London but happily travel around the UK, and further, to cover weddings. Whether its a country house, a teepee in a field, a large party or a small intimate celebration I love to photograph all types of weddings. I would love to hear about your plans and ideas for your wedding day and would be thrilled to be your wedding photographer!
It has been a real honour to have been named as one of the top 50 wedding photographers in the UK by GoHen, one of the top 10 wedding photographers in London by The Evening Standard and to be a regional finalist in The Wedding Industry Awards Best Photographer category multiple times.

I only take on a set number of weddings each year. Summer dates tend to book up 1-2 years in advance so if you have your heart set on me being your wedding photographer do get in touch sooner rather than later.
Do you cover more than one wedding a day?
No. When I book a wedding I only do one a day, so I can ensure the best level of service possible.

Of course. Packages include travel costs within England and Wales. If you’re getting married elsewhere just let me know. I always aim to keep any travel costs as reasonable as possible
What is the charge for travelling?
Within England and Wales there are no extra travel costs, but a nights accommodation may be needed. Outside of these areas there will be travel/accommodation costs added, but I always aim to keep these as reasonable as possible.
What style of photos do you take?
My style is to capture the events of the day in the most natural and unobtrusive way. A combination of beautiful, relaxed portraits, captured moments and a friendly and fun approach.
What kind of technology do you use?
I'm a Nikon shooter and use two professional cameras, multiple lenses and bring all the kit I could ever need for every eventuality!

All my equipment is of a professional level. I use the Nikon range of cameras, lenses and flashes and service them every year.

Every wedding package includes an online gallery. This is password protected and can be shared so all your friends and family can see the photos. There is also a secure shopping facility so people can order prints directly.
What''s the delivery time for photographic report?
Your photos will be ready approximately 8-10 weeks after your wedding day sometimes sooner. Your online gallery will be set up first and the link and password sent to you so you can start sharing the photos with your friends and family. The gallery is password-protected and has a secure shopping facility so you can purchase prints there. I will then post your USB to you about a week later. If you have an album or prints as part of your package we will have a chat about these once you have received all your images. As a general rule, I do all album designs in the winter months when things have quietened down and I can give them my full attention.
Do you send all the photos taken?
I aim to make sure you get the very best photos and your photos truly capture the story of your day. This is why I take the time to edit the images so you get the best of the best. On average you will end up with 600-800 images, depending on the level of coverage of the day.
Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?
I work alone but can offer a second photographer if required.
Do you have the rights to publish the wedding photos?
The package includes unlimited personal print and share licence. You can share the photos and publish as long as its for personal use.
Do you charge per hour or per event?
I offer packages that cover a certain amount of time. If you wish to tweak these packages and add time thats fine.
If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?
Yes. Generally its good to try to plan for this before the day but Im happy to stay if things run over.
How do you charge extra time?
If you wish to add extra hours to a package you can. Extra hours are charged at an hourly rate.
What are the forms of payment?
Payment must be made by bank transfer. To confirm a booking I require £500 as a retainer, with the balance due one month before the date of the wedding.
How do you work?
My aim is always to capture your wedding day as it happens as much as possible. One of my brides can probably say it better..."I also just wanted to say thank you so much for being so amazing! We are so happy we found you and that you were available for the day! We had loads of friends and family commenting on how lovely and professional you were, and they can't wait to see the pictures. You honestly made us feel so comfortable and at ease that we could just have fun with the day rather than stage things."
Reviews for Fiona Kelly Photography

Really couldn’t recommend her highly enough
Fiona photographed our wedding. From the first email I knew that she was the one to photograph our special day, and we were so happy we found her! Besides being very professional, she was really friendly and just down to earth and easy to get on with, which made photographing two people who hate having their photographs taken actually turn out great. As a photographer myself it was a big must for me to have the photos right, so if you’re looking for someone to capture your day and all the special moments that bring life and soul to your wedding (or any event!) then Fiona is your lady. Really couldn’t recommend her highly enough.Sent on 23/03/2018

We could not have asked for anyone to have captured our wedding day more perfectly
We could not have asked for anyone to have captured our wedding day more perfectly than Fiona did. Not only are we thrilled with our pictures but having Fiona there with us on the day was a wonderful experience and she was such a help to me, she kept me so relaxed and helped to ensure that everything went perfectly. From the moment I first met Fiona I knew that we were in very good hands and she could not have been lovelier to work with. Thank you so much for everything.Sent on 23/03/2018

We have come away with hundreds of photo's full of laughter and joy
We are a very non fussy couple and really wanted natural but good quality photo's that captured the little moments of the day. Working in graphics & media, I am naturally very picky when it comes to photography so it took a while searching through a number of wedding photographers but when we came across Fiona's website, i instantly loved her style and knew she had to be our photographer! It's a decision that we haven't regretted at all.Sent on 23/03/2018
On the actual wedding day, Fiona became an unofficial bridesmaid to me, she helped us to figure out how to hook up my train, chased hotel staff when i needed an ironing board & helped to move guests into the church when i turned up half an hour early! She never got in the way or pressured us into any formal shots that we hadn't already planned for. She was happy to work with suggestions and let my friends pull her to the side for extra photos. Our plans changed several times and Fiona handled it like a pro, quickly adapting to suit our needs & make us feel comfortable.
It's clear that Fiona judges the best shots as the wedding happens around her, never once did it feel like we we're just another wedding with a standard photo list to check through. We have come away with hundreds of photo's full of laughter and joy that shows the craziness of our family & friends, whilst still getting the family group shots. Her personality shines through her photos - warm, funny & understands what moments really matter throughout your big day. Our photo's are amazing and we would recommend her to anybody in a heartbeat!
