Weddings days to me are days that sing and shout about the two people that have decided to marry each other, on this day, in their own particular way. Always different, always beautiful celebrations of people.
I love creating a set of beautiful and honest images that capture the fun, emotion, atmosphere and individual spirit of your day. I immerse myself in the heart and soul of the celebrations, so that my images capture exactly that. The smaller, still moments alongside the big ones. The quiet glances, meaningful touches, the joyfulness in faces and fleeting scenes, and how it felt to be right there, in those moments. Because when you look at your images years down the line, that’s what I want to come flooding back for you. So that you remember not just what it all looked like, but how it all felt.
I live in Manchester with my boyfriend John and our daughter, Kit. I grew up around image makers – my grandad was a photographer and my dad is a documentary cameraman. I built up my professional and technical skills and experience working full-time for a fashion and advertising photographer for 10 years, producing and assisting on shoots in studio and all over the world. My love of documentary and editorial imagery led me here. It’s always an honour to be asked to photograph a wedding, and a joyful job that allows me to meet brilliant people along the way. That my pictures mean so much to my couples is about as rewarding as it gets, and I’m incredibly grateful in return.
I love to tell the story of the whole day, and I like to keep things simple. My wedding coverage includes the following:
- A pre wedding consultation to talk through your plans
- Help and advice for timings for the day
- Photography from preparations to dancefloor
- A set of individually edited images that tell the story of your day – you will receive a minimum of 400 images in a mixture of colour and black + white
- Full personal printing rights – you will receive print-ready files and web-sized versions of all finished images, to keep, print and share as you wish
- A private online gallery for you to share with friends and family for 6 months from the date of upload
- All travel expenses in the UK
For a brochure, a chat or a meeting please contact me via the link above, or drop me an email.

I shoot weddings all over the UK and overseas destination weddings, so no matter where you are (or where you want to go) please do get in touch. Likewise, if you feel that your plans are a bit different and you’re not sure how it would work – please just ask. I also offer prints, albums and pre-wedding shoots.

“I have to say a huge thank-you to Lucy for her incredible photography skills, she is a real joy to work with and the poster-girl for true unobtrusive, reportage style photography. When these images landed in my inbox I actually cried, it was like being transported right back to this magical day where every moment and emotion was so accurately captured.”
