The Love Lust List {Melissa Beattie}

I’m not even going to beat around the bush… I absolutely adore Melissa Beattie‘s photography, it’s just so beautiful. I followed Melissa for a while before she joined our handpicked supplier directory, The Love Lust List, and every time she shared the latest wedding she had captured I fell head over heels, and knew our community would love her work too. An absolute master of capturing beautiful moments discreetly, Melissa also knows how to utilise light to create the most romantic atmosphere in her work, and who doesn’t love a bit of romance on a wedding day?! Building up a rapport with your wedding photographer can have a huge impact on your wedding images, after all, you’re letting this person into one of the most important days of your life, and they have to capture everything you will want to remember forever. It really isn’t something to be overlooked, and I can assure you you will have no problems at all building that relationship with Melissa, she’s one of a kind lovely.

Melissa: Hello! I’m Melissa, a UK and Destination wedding photographer, based in a very beautiful part of England, Northumberland. However, I love to travel and work all over the UK and beyond. 

I know so many photographers out there that would say the same, but photography is way more than a job for me … it’s a passion. My style of photography is a mixture of fine art and documentary and my love of nature and natural light plays huge role in my images. My work has often been described as natural, romantic and timeless. I love getting to know and making real connections with my couples, this allows me to capture them in the most honest way. I create magical images that tell the story of your day in a relaxed and discreet way. 

I live with my husband, Jonny and our two mini monsters, Jack and Bump (don’t worry our child isn’t really called bump, our second baby is due in June). When I am not photographing beautiful weddings I am at my happiest when I am with my family, visiting new places, exploring the countryside and building sandcastles by the sea.


“I knew from the outset that I just had to have Melissa as my photographer. Melissa was just a dream to work with, she was friendly relaxed and helped us to stay calm and relaxed too. Most of the time we didn’t even realise she was snapping away, capturing all the previous moments. My final images blew me away! The edit of the photos capture all the love and laughter that was shared with us and every image is visually stunning – I felt like the images belonged in the pages of a bridal magazine.”

Kathryn & Michael

“It’s difficult to explain how wonderful Melissa is in so little words. She made our day so special, she is friendly, funny, creative and caring. It felt like she was a close friend at our wedding. We loved her so much! We felt that we could trust her completely because she just got us. The photos were even better than expected and she went above and beyond to make sure our photos were bespoke and personal.”

Hazel & Simon

“Melissa was the best photographer we could have hoped for. She is not only professional and incredibly talented but she is also a wonderful person, who was so friendly and personable from the word go. She really took the time to get to know us as a couple and what we were hoping for from her work. Not only did she take some incredibly beautiful shots but she also captured so many little moments with family and friends. Her work tells a story and we’ll treasure our wedding album forever.”
