My approach to weddings  

I love everything to do with weddings, from my first contact with an excited Bride, who has so many things to plan, through to the wonderful day and follow up afterwards, designing and creating a beautiful wedding album for the Bride and Groom which we are all proud of and will hold treasured memories for the rest of their lives. Being involved in someone's wedding is one of the best jobs in the world and I feel truly priveleged to be part of the day. I am versatile in my photography styles and it is important for me  to discuss with you, your expectations and the results you would like -no two weddings are the same and I want to know all about your wedding, what excites you about it and to allow me to see the day through your eyes so I can document your day as you wish to remember it. As an experienced wedding photographer with over 25 years  in the business,  I have gained a wealth of knowledge and have photographed at most of the beautiful venues within Cumbria , The Lake District, nationally and abroad.If you have any questions, please do contact me by email or telephone and I will be very happy to discuss your day- I look forward to hearing from you!



What will it cost?

Because your photography package is completely unique for you, prices do vary as packages are carefully put together with products chosen to suit your needs but as a guide, prices for part day coverage for weddings with more than 40 guests are from £595.00 and and full day up to the first dance from £995.00. This includes all your images to USB at high resolution plus a password protected online gallery for family and friends to view.

Your wedding photography is going to be one of the most important decisions you make for your special day- You are not just buying images and a couple of hours of 'snapping' time, but investing in the experience, effort and skill of your photographer. Not just on the day but also in the planning, ideas, concept and getting to know your photographer so you can feel totally comfortable and at ease on the day. After your wonderful day has come to an end, you can rest assured knowing that I am working on the next stage of your images which is post production. Every single image is enhanced,  cropped and details highlited , so I can present you with a wonderful collection of images to keep forever. I have received 1-1 training in professional editing from one of the leading editors in the UK and understand the importance of not only capturing the moments but also how to enhance each image for a superior, finished result.

 No wedding is too small or too big and I invite you to call me for a friendly consultation to discuss your special day. Alternatively, you are welcome to email me with a contact number and suitable contact time and I will gladly call you back.

contact Rachel on 01539 729189 or email to discuss your personal requirements.


Before and After
An engagement shoot is a great way to familiarize yourself in front of the camera before your wedding day. Also, it brings a fantastic opportunity for me to provide your make up trial so that you can see the results on camera, before your big day! We can choose a local location (often your wedding venue), to create some beautiful pre wedding images. You will receive your images as a digital download, all professionally edited, plus a book with 12 of your favourites, in a bespoke signing book for guests to leave a personal message on your wedding day. I can also use the images to design your personal wedding invitations if you wish. I understand how busy and time consuming wedding planning can be and a personal wedding invitation is a very special touch for your guests and also allows me to take some of the pressure off you by helping you with your wedding planning. Engagement shoot and signing book £250.00

After the wedding, I have a wide range of display products to showcase your favourite images. You will automatically receive your edited images on a beautifully presented USB. Also available are presentation boxes, photograph collections, albums,wall displays and 'Thank you' cards.                                                                                                         

All albums are designed by myself from your selection of images and the design is then emailed to you to approve for printing.

There are a large selection of cover styles available which can also be viewed online to make your choice. Your finished album is presented to you as a personal, printed book. All details will be sent to you after the wedding to help you with your selections.
