Creating beautifully relaxed, informal imagery which reflects the truth of your wedding day by secretly capturing the intimate and spontaneous moments which make it so special. 


Who will shoot our wedding?

I am an Essex based photographer, living near the beautiful Thames Estuary. A lover of nature and being out in the open air whatever the weather. I would like to think of myself as calm, approachable and sensitive to the needs of my clients. As someone who feels awkward in front of the camera myself, it is incredibly important to me to have a relaxed and comfortable relationship with my clients in which they can feel completely at ease . Through meeting, talking and planning together I hope that couples feel confident in entrusting me to capture the intimate and spontaneous moments which make a wedding day so special, without intruding on their day.

Do you offer a pre-wedding shoot?

Yes, all of my packages include a pre-wedding shoot as this enables me to develop easy, relaxed relationships with couples. I want my clients to be able to enjoy their wedding day without feeling imposed upon.

Do you offer wedding albums and prints?

My current packages include digital downloads from a secure online gallery which can be shared with family and friends and/or USB presentation boxes. I am very happy to quote for any additional products you require.

What is your style?

My style is relaxed, informal and as creative as my couples are happy for me to be. I enjoy chatting to guests to get the best out of everyone on the day but also taking time out to observe and capture people when they are most unaware and at ease. I like to keep my images as unaltered and authentic as possible to keep the mood and atmosphere of the day.


Nicola is incredible at making even the most awkward people feel at ease and comfortable in front of the camera. Half the time you don’t even know that she is there, hiding in corners and skirting around the room catching every special moment, often capturing things you missed. Not only is she incredibly skilled with a camera, and has an incredible eye for it. But above everything Nicola is professional,kind and friendly. All the guests at our wedding mention how lovely she was as a person, with some even thinking she was just another guest. Nicola goes out of her way to get to know guests and makes everyone in the room feel involved. I cannot recommended her enough. We feel so lucky to have met Nicola and imagine this won’t be the last time we see her.

I don’t even know where to begin. Nicola was so fantastic, from our first conversation to the final photographs being sent, nothing was too much trouble. We are far from a traditional couple, neither of us confident in front of the camera but Nicola immediately gelled with our style and captured our day exactly how we imagined. She was friendly, laid back and amazing with out two children.

Laura & Tony

Nicola was professional from the very beginning and made us feel at ease. She just got that we weren't flashy people who wanted a lot of fuss. We absolutely loved our photos and knew we had chosen the right photographer for us. 100% recommend

Sam & Matt

Nicola captured not only the most special moments of our day, but the best moments and ‘in the moment’ interactions of our family and friends. Everything was so effortless and straightforward before, during and after our wedding day with Nic. Getting amazing photography is obviously the primary objective but getting to that stage with someone who genuinely loves what they do, cares about the outcome, is extremely organised, communicates everything clearly and to top it all off has absolutely outstanding skills as a photographer. We honestly couldn’t have asked for anymore.

Ryan & Lottie

Absolutely loved every single one of our beautiful photos, you truly captured the complete essence of our special day. Thanks to you we have the most treasured of memories. Nicola you are truly amazing.
