wedding photographer south west france

Hello and thank you for visiting my site.

If you are a fun loving couple and want your photographs to reflect you and your personalities then I’m your photographer. I want your wedding photographs to be different, to stand out and be all about you and your story. It’s Your day, Your personalities and an atmosphere You have created. For me it's all about the couple enjoying their day. It's the one day all your favourite people in the whole world are with you to celebrate and share your special day.

Everything is flexible, everything relaxed. I believe the photography should add to the fun of the day not take it away. The best weddings for me are when the couples give me a brief of what they want and then leave me to it. Let me watch through my camera as your day unfolds and trust me to capture the moments that matter. After all, you only get one chance to do this right.


The best way to make sure we get your photographs just how you imagine is to talk. Tell me what you want – and don’t want – tell me how you want the photographs to make you feel. I can do traditional, I can do reportage, I always do romantic so we can mix it all up and create something perfect – just for you. If you are a big fan of reportage photos I also have a second shooter available to work alongside me. This works especially well with weddings inviting over 40 guests.

I’ve won awards, I’m very experienced and I love my job. From being a little girl I have always found photographs magical. You know when you go round to your grandparents house and they get all the old photos out - well I LOVED it! They are like a fine wine, they become more precious over time. Reading a book called 'The Memory Keeper' about a photographer, it struck me just what a true  responsibilty and honour it is to be a photographer at such an important day in your lives. My job is to catch those fleeting moments for you to keep forever. To create images which will bring back the joy and happiness of your day surrounded by all the people you love the most. As a mother I know just how emotional and magical this day will be. Capturing the essence of the emotions of your day is what I am about as a photographer.


I have had the pleasure of photographing couples from all over the globe in chateaux, castles, manor  houses and garden marquees. I photograph weddings in the UK and Dordogne South West region of France. You are getting married further afield... ? excellent, let me know the details.

During the summer months I am lucky to be able to spend time in the Dordogne region of South West France. This means I am familiar with most of the venues and suppliers who work together creating amazing wedding day celebrations. I enjoy an excellent reputation with many of the venues and wedding planners in the region which helps the day to run smoothly.  I understand the light and how to make the most of the beautiful French golden hour. Knowledge and experience of the  venues is invaluable.

Please have a look at the Galleries to gain a brief insight into the passion I get to call my job and visit the 'Kind Words' page to see what lovely things my couples have to say. Visit the Q&A Page for further information.

We both get one chance to get these photographs right - I know I am the right choice.

If this sounds interesting and you like the idea then please Contact me.

​I look forward to hearing from you and discussing your plans.
