Hello!

My wedding photography is a mixture of lots of styles. Formal, Creative, Fun and Reportage. It has developed and been moulded by my previous career as a classical ballerina. The rigorous training and the magical theatre in which I have lived help give my wedding photographs precision, romance and quality.

I love to capture the story of your amazing day. I watch carefully and make sure all the little details of your day are photographed as well as the formal moments.

Your wedding is a celebration and I revel in capturing the chemistry between you in elegant formal shots , Vogue bridal party poses as well as the fun quirky impulsive photos that all tell your story.

I adopt a fly on the wall style of photography for your speeches and party shots. Melting into the crowd I photograph the laughter of your guests, the tears and the smiles of your family and the love between the two of you.

Dance and photography are my passion so photographing your first dance is a pleasure.

I am still very much involved with the dance world. My dance career on the stage spanned over 15 years where I danced with English National Ballet for 9 years, often dancing as a soloist on the stage with Nureyev. I danced with Northern Ballet Theatre for 2 years as well as guesting with Icelandic Ballet Company and Napac in South Africa before studying photography.

Two of my more flamboyant clients are Anton Du Bec and Erin Boag. They perform every year in theatres round the UK, where I capture their wonderful dancing and spectacular costumes. What a treat!

I am also a regular photographer for the International Flamenco Spanish company called 'Paco Pena'. The passionate, bold dancers with their incredible heel beats and swirling skirts and Paco Pena with his soulful and intricate guitar playing have always stolen my heart. As has the modern dance company of Mark Morris based in New York. They love my photography and regularly commission me to photograph their performances.

Not only do I photograph Weddings and Dance but also Portraits and Events. I have been a BIPP award winning photographer four times and have been the photographer for 'Lady Taverner's' and the 'Osteoporosis Society' where I photographed high profile celebrities and on many occasions, royalty such as Prince Philip, His Royal Highness Prince Charles and Camilla, Countess of Cornwall, Prince Andrew and Princess Anne.

I love travelling, the sea, the sun, music, dancing and laughter.

I love photographing weddings in the UK, Spain, France, Italy, Cyprus or any other exotic and faraway location you have in mind!
