Do you like what you see?  Are you planning an event or alternative wedding? 


For as long as I can remember, I've always loved attending weddings, because everyone is united in the same aim - to be happy and celebrate.  However beautiful a white wedding might be, being a fun loving kind of gal, I do so love it when couples get adventurous!  So if you're looking to tie the knot outside, planning a vintage style wedding, celebrating your nuptials on a barge or dressing from head to toe in red, I just might be the photographer you're looking for.  I like to keep life simple and costs to a minimum, so please see below for package details or contact me with your enquiry.

Food for thought.  Have you considered a wild elopement?  Here are some commonly asked questions for those looking to do things a little differently.

What is a wild elopement?

Wild elopements are increasing in popularity because they take away the stresses and strains associated with conventional weddings and provide greater freedom of choice in how and where couples exchange their vows.  Imagine marrying on a hillside for example, your future and views stretching out before you!

Let's get the bad news out of the way first.  Celebrant led elopement ceremonies are not yet legal in the UK, although changes to the law have been proposed and it's looking increasingly likely that these may be enshrined in law within the next couple of years, so watch this space!  The good news is that there is still a way to marry this way AND make it legal (read on). 


Couples who choose to elope can take charge of their day and celebrate the start of their journey in a favourite outdoor space.  Elopements are limitless and are a great option for couples who strive to live more sustainably, love the outdoors and are looking for a more intimate ceremony!  Celebrant led elopement ceremonies can be humanist or tailored to suit any religion.  They have no restrictions on time or location and celebrants devote time and attention to getting to know their couples, in order to write more meaningful vows.

Do we need witnesses for an elopement?

Couples can address the legal part of their union relatively inexpensively after their elopement ceremony by taking part in a statutory marriage registration with two witnesses at a cost of approximately £60.00.  Couples considering this option would be advised to contact their local register office for further details.  Please note that you legally won't need witnesses for the elopement ceremony, but it's your choice.  Whilst many couples enjoy going it alone, some couples like to bring along a couple of good friends or perhaps close family members for support.  There are no restrictions!  

If we choose you as our event photographer, what will we get?

Me and my camera for a designated period of time.

A password protected gallery.

Edited images on a keepsake USB.

I would be more than happy to talk you through the process, tailor a package to suit you (starting at £200.00) and help to tell your story.  

Sometimes, to dream big is to escape, defy other people's expectations and celebrate your union or occasion your way!  Whether that means a simple, intimate woodland ceremony, a lavish Birthday picnic photoshoot or eloping to a field at sunset, beautiful memories don't have to cost the earth.  All you need is a little imagination and creativity.  I will happily capture those memories and deliver them straight back to you!

Please contact me at in the first instance with your ideas or query and I will respond as soon as I can.
