Hello there, congrats on getting married soon! I’m a Somerset wedding and elopement photographer, nestled in the South West of the UK, I photograph weddings and elopements across the counties of Somerset and Devon U.K., and have been for around 15 years now.


Capturing Your Love Story in Somerset and Devon

What I love most of all in my work is photographing the couple. Intimate photos of you both where I can capture a sense of togetherness. As a landscape photographer I have a propensity toward including the scenery in that, too. We have a lot to be grateful for in our world, and I think the beauty of nature adds something special to the image. My photography started with landscapes and I think that love will remain with me for the rest of my life (click here to see the landscape website). That’s one of the reasons I specialise in elopement photography, or micro weddings, Devon. Just us three amongst nature, feeling as though time is standing still for a while.

I document what happens on the day of course, but I wouldn’t name my style as documentary. If I had to put a name to my imagery, I would include the following:


  • colourful imagery.
  • incorporating landscapes.
  • a focus on intimate, romantic, & stylish portraits.
  • creative use of light.

 I look forward with optimistic anticipation of not just capturing your day, but meeting you and being part of your story, if only for one day.

I adore being a wedding photographer of elopements and smaller weddings here in Devon and Somerset. With less time pressure we can grab some incredible images across the land, like in these shots below. Documenting such an intimate and very special moment is very personal to me. Weddings are essentially about two people coming together to unite in marriage, and I think elopements are beautiful because of that. I’m very passionate about seeing people happy, and so I find photographing a wedding in such a set up to be very meaningful.

I don’t often shoot full day weddings, most of my work is on elopements or smaller weddings such as those that rent a house and close family are around them.

Check out the pricing page next and see how many hours you’d like to have captured.

Hey! This is me back in 2019! I must update this photo as I’ve got a lot more greys since, but, well, it’s a photo in Hawaii!

I live in the countryside with my lovely husband.

When I’m not working I’m out hiking, photographing nature, riding my red 50’s bicycle, tending to my allotment, watching movies, and playing my piano.

I’m also a garden photographer, with use of a drone, and provide imagery for magazines. This year and last year, one of my images was awarded ‘Finalist’ by the International Garden Photographer of The Year competition.

I love working in an industry centred around one of the greatest things in the world; love. Seeing people happy is as joyful as seeing the first flower of summer start to bloom (I adore summer!). Find out more about me here.
