Booking Form

So, you’ve decided that I’m the photographer for you (woohoo!) – please complete the booking form below to get the ball rolling. Remember, your wedding date will be secure only once the booking deposit and contract have been received. More details below.

Questions? Just holler!

The Next Steps

I want this process to be a breeze for you! This is what you can expect to happen next…

➳ As soon as I receive this booking form, I will be in touch to confirm and provisionally reserve your date.

➳ You’ll then receive my invoice and photography contract that will require electronic signatures.

➳ Once the booking fee has been received and the contract signed, the booking is complete and the date is set! One less thing to concern your lovely selves about. The final balance of your invoice will be due 4 weeks before your wedding date (or 1 week if it’s a couple’s shoot).

  We’ll then set up a day and time to chat (either in person or virtually) so that we can get to know one other a little more over a coffee (or wine!) and go over some wedding day deets!

➳ About a month before your big day, you’ll receive one heck of an awesome Wedding Questionnaire (winning at tech, right!?) that will cover all the finer details, like final timings, vendor names, venue contacts, etc. You’ll need to complete this and get it back to me so that we’re ready to rock on the big day.

➳ Finally, no more admin… now we just let the good times roll!


Once you’ve made the decision to book with me, simply complete the booking form above so I can provisionally secure your date and get the wheels in motion.

I’ll then send you my contract and invoice via email. A £500 booking fee and a signed contract will secure your booking. Then it’s officially time to pour yourself a fancy beverage, kick back and relax… your work here is done!

Please note that bookings are granted on a first-come, first-served basis, and I am unable to confirm dates without a signed contract and booking fee.

If you have any questions along the way, please get in touch.

I’m a London wedding photographer based in Kent, but I’ll happily travel if your wedding venue is in one of the other home counties.

My Full Day packages include travel to venues located within 2hrs from West Kent.

My Intimate packages include travel within London or 1hr from West Kent.

For weddings further afar, or international/destination weddings, please get in touch so I can quote accordingly.

Heck yes! I have full, professional insurance and public liability to cover every aspect of my wedding photography services.

I always aim to share a few ‘sneak peeks’ with my couples within the first few days after the wedding, as I know how excited you are to see them and relive some of the moments while you’re still on that wedding high!

Your full private online gallery will be ready in 6-8 weeks after the wedding, particularly during the peak wedding season. You will be able to share, download and print all or any of the images from within this gallery.


If you take a look at my work, it should be evident that I’m a lover of natural, unstructured storytelling.

There may be moments that call for some gentle direction – especially if you prefer a bit of guidance which I’m happy to give – but I want to capture truth and real emotion and those little sparks of joy when nobody else is looking. 

I aim to document your day as it naturally unfolds (instead of manufacturing what and how it happens) so you can remember how it was to be there in that very moment. 

I’m also always on the lookout for beautiful light and composition and might whip you away to grab a few quick frames if I see a moment that’s too good to miss!

In terms of my editing style, I really don’t believe that one ‘look’ fits all. I don’t do carbon copies, but rather draw inspiration from the feeling, light, tones and energy of the wedding day itself, as they are all beautifully unique.

If you want absolute perfection, I may not be the photographer for you… but if you want authenticity, cheesy puns (my lame joke game is strong), images that come from the heart, and incredible memories for life… I’m your gal!

Thanks to the magic of technology (“ok boomer”), we’ll absolutely be setting up an online ‘face-to-face’ chat, once the booking is confirmed, for us to get to know one another a bit more and talk about how you’d like your wedding day to unfold! 

Then about 1 month before the wedding you’ll receive an online questionnaire so that I can get all the juicy deets (venue info, final timings, order of events, etc) and make sure we’re ready to roll come the big day.

Of course, I’m always available on email or phone to answer any questions you might have during your planning stages… and if we happen to live close enough to each other, then I’d love to get together with you both for a coffee or a cheeky glass of wine, if our schedules allow!

It’s important to me that you feel at ease, relaxed and confident in me and my abilities so that you can focus on more important things… like marrying the love of your life and having the wedding of your dreams!

In the event that you need to cancel your booking, the booking fee you paid at the time of booking is non-refundable and will be forfeited. If you need to reschedule your wedding date, I’d be happy to transfer your deposit to the new date, subject to my availability. Please note that fees for rescheduled weddings may be subject to change.

Although it has not happened yet, if any unexpected situation arises and I’m unable to shoot your wedding, I always have a backup plan.

One of my very talented and trusted fellow photographers will step in and cover your wedding if necessary and meet the same highest standards as I would.

I will still be processing, editing the entire wedding and delivering the online galleries myself.
