my story

'A thing of beauty is a joy forever.'

photographer in Leeds

My most treasured possession is my mum and dad's wedding album. You can't beat holding a special photograph in your hand. You can even kiss it and feel the love of the person in it.

I photograph people in love amongst people who love them, wearing lovely clothes and looking fabulous... all your unique touches, friendships and emotions will be held in time in your photographs.  

Photographing since my mum gave me a camera for my 10th birthday, I plan to photograph forever, or thereabouts.

A believer in harmony, I care that we connect because there is such a thing as the right photographer for you and your day. 

Meeting the real 'Poirot' was a life highlight, and I can tell you that Jimmy Choo is a very warm, smiley, down-to-earth man - getting close to him for a picture was perfectly fine, but I was not allowed within a metre of his one of a kind couture shoes and I had to photograph those from afar. 

hello you

natural wedding photography

It's all about The Love, keeping it natural yet with a touch of magic & some Boho Chic

My mum, good at so many things, would often draw a picture for me at the end of my stories and then I'd colour it in. Maybe it's because I couldn't draw (at all) that making pictures with a camera became so rewarding, and I learnt to see the meaning my photographs brought.

My dad was a cool, sharp dresser, tall, dark and very handsome. We were once sent out for school shoes and returned with three party dresses for me, one of ankle length, yellow spotted tulle with dropped waist... and pistachio ice cream. Days together at the seaside were the best, and eventually I got a brother AND a sister, and a rubber dinghy.

I live with my love, my photographer husband Tony, and our cat, Monique in the Yorkshire countryside. I've convinced the husband that a doggy would be a perfect addition to our home but the cat still says no!

Favourites include warm fresh bread with good cheese, strong frothy coffee, dark chocolate, fizz & full-bodied reds, lots of dancing, much reading, art-deco, 70s maxi-boho fashion, flowers in your hair, as well as 'Poirot' and turquoise blues...

Claire Pettibone wedding dresses are straight out of A Midsummer Night's Dream... Few recreate 1920s and 30s styling like Jenny Packham and Eliza Jane Howell and Alice Temperley are supremely chic. So many dresses are divine, as are most things which are beautifully and individually made. My favourite 'big' shop is Anthropologie.
