Brilliant photography

We cannot recommend Melanie Jane enough! We had the pleasure of having Melanie capture our day and her attention to detail and professionalism was second to none! She was able to capture everything that we had discussed prior to our wedding and more! Even offered us a complimentary family shoot after our day as our youngest was not keen on posing for photos on the day! Melanie even stayed past the agreed to due to some late changes to the order of the day. Very good value for money and we had our image catalogue, very nicely presented in a bespoke box, within 2 weeks of our wedding day! Would definitely recommend Melanie Jane, friendly and attentive service at a very competitive price.

Excellent service, Brilliant photos!

Melanie Jane was an absolute professional! She was a joy to work with and easy to get on with. She went the extra mile and was flexible with the days plans.

Melanie captured amazing moments of our wedding day and made sure all our key photos were captured. She’s very creative and clearly loves what she does. Our wedding photos looked amazing, with every detail and colour captured brilliantly.

We made the best decision in booking Melanie Jane’s photography services and would highly recommend.

Perfect photographer understood the assignment and put me at ease.

I am extremely introvert and private person, the photographer was what I was dreading most about the wedding as I absolutely hate having my picture taken. I was feeling so uncomfortable with the thought of being in the limelight, but Melanie absolutely put me at ease…I didn’t even notice she was taking photos the majority of the time- candid and directed poses were completed with ease and Melanie has provided us with so many good shots that I will treasure..capturing every element of the day! Thank you so much!

Excellent photographer

Our photographer, Melanie, demonstrates professionalism and courtesy. Our wedding photos are high quality, good lighting so natural and beautiful. She captured a lot of cherished moments which are beautifully preserved. She helped me a lot with my poses and gave me some ideas. We had a lovely presentation of our photos.

Wonderfully skilled, friendly and highly professional - must be your first choice!

Melanie and Beth assured great commitment, patience and understanding in delivering our photography plus driving ideas should there have been mixed weather opportunities and timings to make our moments be treasured on our special day.
We are thrilled with how it went, so were especially pleased for having chosen to work with Melanie and Beth, as their experience and skill was certainly noted.
Not only on the day, but in the build-up, we found their time in a getting to know you session plus communication as well as working with the venue at The Lawn very reassuring. This along with making us and our guests comfortable means that they made it very special and it will always be memorable for us, as well as many others.
The personalised USB stick with all the images arrived in a wonderful wooden box along with a handful of print outs - just lovely - hugely recommended and priceless value. You want to seek Melanie's availability before any other options.

Fantastic from start to finish

Melanie made the process as smooth and as easy as possible. From the engagement shoot to the day of our wedding, Melanie put us at ease and was very professional. We couldnt rate her any higher, or reccomend her anymore to anyone.
The photos were amazing and she captured everything we asked for and more.

Incredible experience & photos from Melanie Jane!

Melanie Jane was very friendly yet professional from start to finish. We really appreciated the "get to know you" session ahead of the wedding to meet and discuss the style of photography we would like. It also helped put us at ease in front of the camera.

On the day of our wedding, Melanie Jane was incredible. Despite the gale force winds she was able to capture lovely moments with all of our friends and family.

The presentation of our photos in a personalised box with some print outs and memory stick of the rest of our images was a lovely, unexpected touch.

Would definitely recommend Melanie Jane for your photography needs. Thank you so much for helping make our day so special x

5 star experience!

Couldn’t recommend Melanie enough, from initial contact to receiving our photos, everything was perfect. Melanie captured all the moments I was hoping for and was incredible at organising everyone together for large group shots. We also received our photos very quickly where I know with other photographers it can take months. Honestly couldn’t recommend enough for your big day. In love with all our photos!
