I believe each wedding should be seen with fresh eyes and captured accordingly. I am passionate, dedicated and fearless in photographing each moment in the purest way.


Do you travel outside of the Lake District?

Yes, I'll travel anywhere in the world for photography, some longer distances are subject to some travel charges.

Can I return the booking fee and contract at a different / later times?

It is important to secure your wedding booking to ensure you return BOTH the booking fee, and your contract within 7 days of each other. This allows time if you wish to pay the booking fee then return the booking form via post.

What if I can’t fully complete the booking form details?

Providing you have confirmed your wedding date, time and locations, along with both signing the contract we can confirm more precise details at a later date.

How much is the booking fee?

The booking fee is a minimum of just £100. This can be paid via bank transfer or cash. Some clients opt to pay more. I request all payments to be dated with your wedding date.

What is an engagement / pre-wedding shoot? / When is best to book my engagement / pre-wedding portrait?

I always recommend the FREE pre-wedding / engagement portrait (if your package includes one). This allows you both to spend time with me to ensure you are fully at ease on your wedding day, along with picking up some brilliant poses, which will allow your wedding day to run much smoother.

How long does it take to get my photographs edited and returned?

I advise all my clients, between 6 and 8 weeks for me to edit your images in my signature style. I take pride in my work, therefore do not wish to rush. Also I ensure a preview image within 48 hours of your wedding day. I guess I like to tease you!

Will you stay and celebrate with us?

Sure thing, providing I’ve not got photography to attend to the following day, I always love a good boogie and socialising. I really enjoy being part of your day!


Clare has got a unique style and loves the quirky pictures. She is really laid back to the point that she IS horizontal. She will lay in a muddy puddle or climb a tree in a posh frock to capture "the moment"
