This is such an exciting time in your lives. The engagement session is the perfect opportunity to help you feel more comfortable and confident in front of the camera and prepares you for being photographed professionally. I want you to flirt like crazy and have fun. Maybe you could finish the session with a bottle of champagne and a picnic!
"Colette is an incredibly talented photographer that any couple would be blessed to have on their wedding day. We wouldn’t trust anyone else with our photos and are pleased to have found not only a great photographer, but a great friend for many memories to come in our lives"
"From the moment I booked Colette through to our wedding day she has been amazing. She managed to capture such magical moments. We've had so many compliments about our wedding album, even being contacted by a bridal magazine!"
“If you want photographs that are detailed with sensitive, emotional moments then look no further. Our wedding in Sicily was truly magical and Colette made it that little more special! We are overwhelmed with how effortlessly well she captured our special day. We will forever be grateful – thank you.”
"Colette is fantastically creative and dedicated. She will take what you have created with all your wedding planning, see it, understand it, and bring it’s most beautiful nuances to the fore. We felt safe in her hands and will now treasure her work forever"

The rain can’t keep us from taking beautiful images! It can actually give a real luminous feel to some photos. Don’t let the fear of rain steal your joy. You can’t control it, and I promise I will make the best of it!!! Here are a few things to consider: I have various umbrellas in my car for this kind of weather. All we need is natural light and often the light when raining is beautiful and even. Don't worry about the photos, we will scout for some covered locations. Ask your venue if they have a rain plan?
Yes, every single image that is presented to you in your online gallery will be edited in my signature style. You will even receive some black and white copies of the images too!
A wedding with 10 hours of photography coverage you should expect receive at least 500+ images, usually more but the amount will vary as every wedding is different. I will leave in as many as possible, however I can not present every image taken as some will be duplicates, eyes shut etc.
I'm a Canon girl, I use 5D MarkIV's and prime lenses. These cameras back up to a second memory card as I shoot. For processing and digital developing I use Lightroom and Photoshop.
Generally, it will take 4-6 weeks for you to receive your wedding photos. Depending on the time of year and how many weddings I have in the queue, the exact time will vary and can also increase during the busy summer months.
Unfortunately I cannot hold a particular date without having received a booking fee and signed contract. Once these have been received your date is secure. I work on a first come first served basis and have to be fair to everyone.
This beautiful St Tewdrics House wedding was a pleasure to capture. St Tewdrics is a Grade II listed mid century Italian Renaissance Villa near chepstow in South Wales.
A gorgeous outdoor ceremony in the stunning secret garden with vibrant pink florals and styling.
I am currently booking for 2021/2022. Early bookings are highly encouraged.
