About Story Wedding Photography

You have put so much thought into every detail: the perfect dress, the cool venue, the elegant centre pieces, but at the crux of every wedding is a very meaningful and soulful human affair.

Hello, I'm Lorna, and I want to capture and preserve your wedding story through a beautiful collection of sensitive and emotive wedding photographs. I have worked as a London-based wedding photographer for over 10 years, capturing couples across all faiths and cultures in this amazing city. Trends come and go, but I strive towards timeless imagery, using light in a sensitive way, using classical framing and keeping colours true in post-production. My style is elegant and effortless, and my strength lies in my ability to catch the 'in-between' moments that are so often missed.

Although modern wedding photography requires spontaneity and intuition, the planning process is important to me. Meeting in person and keeping in touch by email and text before your wedding allows me to get to know the details that matter to you so you can relax and enjoy yourself on the day.

I am very aware flexibility is paramount in 2021 with ever-changing government restrictions, so am offering hourly coverage to suit smaller affairs. My full day rate is £1,750 which includes everything from wedding preparations until an hour onto your dance floor, leaving you with a cohesive collection of over 500 beautifully edited images in a delightful slideshow, as well as an online gallery for you to download, print and share for years to come. Your photos will be ready within 3 weeks of your date, sooner in quieter times, and I always offer a 'thank you' message with a few key moments the day after your wedding, so you can have something lovely to share with family and to post on your social media! I am East London based and happy to discuss travel to locations further afield to be a part of your special day.

If you are looking for a photographic storyteller with a calm presence, who works in a fluid and fuss-free way, leaving you with a compilation of precious moments that you didn't even know were captured, get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Exceeded all expectations

    Lorna Milburn worked quietly in the background, she has a skill, able to capture, naturally, gorgeous moments. The pictures taken reveal her natural eye, recognising those warmer moments between family and friends. I didn't notice the recording of those moments, Lorna moves elegantly, it doesn't surprise me really at her ability to quietly weave between people.

    Lorna designed our album and on opening it I relived that day from the most satisfied perspective. Our immediate family group picture is so joyful, everyone looks as happy as we are. On reflection it's clear that Lorna has an ability to engage with a group of very diverse people, everyone clearly felt very comfortable. Eternally grateful and would highly recommend. Thank you Lorna.

    Mr&Mrs Kisiel.

    Thank you so much wonderful Lorna!

    Lorna at Story is a true pro and a real artist! Her beautiful photos speak for themselves - but she is also a lovely calm and gentle person, who made me feel so at ease in every moment on my day. I cried when I saw the slideshow, and all my guests said they were the most natural wedding photographs they'd seen. I would highly recommend.
