Beauty begins when you decide to be yourself
This is the truth at the heart of my work as a photographer. Be natural, be yourself. I shoot weddings for couples who love a beautiful setting and who celebrate in style with those they love. My approach is effortless storytelling for modern couples. Your honest, beautiful story will be caught in every frame. Let’s capture the real you, at your very best.
I adore working as a wedding photographer for couples who value connection and celebration. I specialise in capturing an honest portrait of your relationship – and in telling the story of your wedding day as it unfolds. Your story is romance NON-fiction.
My clients find me an incredible asset to their weddings. In addition to their desire to have their wedding captured in dynamic, artistic film stills, my couples also love that I become like one of the family. Time and again they observe that I bring warmth and a sense of humour, whilst remaining committed to delivering a high quality experience.

Frequently Asked Questions
All travel and accommodation is included in your tailored quotation, there are no hidden costs. Around 500-800 high resolution images (for full day coverage of 8 hours or more) with a full print release are included via digital download. Optional engagement shoots, second photographers and additional hours are all available upon request. Hand-made albums and linen-boxed print sets are also available for you to order via your online gallery.
how long will you be there?
I’ll be there for as many hours as you need, and your personalised quote will reflect the hours you want covered. I like to arrive 2 hours prior to the ceremony in order to capture bridal preparations and bridal party photographs beautifully. If the groom is preparing at the same venue or very close by then I can photograph him and the groomsmen too. If not then I’ll catch them for some portraits after the ceremony. I can stay as long as you need, but as a guideline 8 to 9 hours is usually plenty. Share as much detail as you can when you enquire, and I can adjust the quote later so that everything is covered and you only pay for what you need.
when will we get our photos?
I use professional, world-class film labs. You may be surprised to learn that your films will be couriered the next day to them and turned around often within a week! Even better, my film scans usually come back spot on, without needing much editing at all. I send a short highlights gallery to you asap, because I know how keen you are to re-live the day. Every photo is individually checked and final images are typically delivered to you within 3-6 weeks of your wedding day. They will be a mixture of film and digital photos, available to download from your own private online gallery as high resolution jpegs.
do you shoot digital as well as film?
Yes! I carry a professional digital camera system and back-up digital equipment. Your entire day will be captured on both digital and film systems, each backing the other up in a unique way. It also means that you get the best of all worlds – elegant film images scanned into a convenient digital format, and no loss of quality with low-light or fast-paced moments captured digitally. Summer weddings are typically 50% film and 50% digital, all delivered as high resolution .jpeg files.
how do we book?
Booking is a smooth, easy process! You construct your own package, complete the questionnaire, sign the agreement and pay – all in one easy-to-use online portal. This is followed up with plenty of consultation calls and emails, plus your all-important wedding day timeline which I’ve created so my clients get the very best from their photography on the day.
Why Film Photography?
an editorial approach
I am passionate about the exceptional and unrivalled beauty found in a good film photograph, that draws the eye and touches the soul: the tones, the depth, the colour. If one thing will swing it in favour of film, let it be the magical skin tones!
I am a film wedding photographer specialising in editorial wedding photography with a fashion flavour. I’m based in southwest England and I’m available throughout the UK & Europe. My work has been featured in top British & international wedding publications, including Rock My Wedding, Bridal Musings and many many more online and print magazines. I am proud to be listed as a featured & exclusive hand-picked vendor for Wedding Sparrow, the world’s first wedding blog dedicated to fine art weddings & film photography.
fine art wedding photography
“Fine art wedding photography” was a concept established by film photographer Jose Villa. It led to a new wave of digital photographers desperate to copy the look of film. The “Looks Like Film” Facebook group for photographers has over 50,000 members! Yet nothing looks quite like real film. I’m proud to be putting the film back into fine art wedding photography.
What people are saying…
"The quality of the film is insane, we feel like movie stars."
“I just wanted to really thank you for the film photos you took. They are absolutely beautiful – you are so talented! You have captured so many special moments that meant a lot to us both and it’s amazing to see it all again. The quality of the film is insane, we feel like movie stars looking at these!“
LIV & SEB
"We are so glad we found Liz and she truly captured all the magic."
“Liz is incredibly skilled and professional, utilising several cameras to capture different light and angles for the best shots, and she delivered the wedding photos much sooner than we expected, providing us with great many photos (all of which were incredibly high quality) that really showcased how thorough and immaculate her work is. We are so glad we found Liz and she truly captured all the magic from our wedding and gave us so many great photos we will forever treasure!”
EVE & TOM
"Liz is absolutely amazing!!"
“Liz did an incredible job with our wedding photography and we couldn’t be happier! From start to finish Liz was incredibly easy to talk to and always happy to work around our wedding day plans. Her skill and experience were invaluable as she helped us work out the best areas, angles and timings for our shoots, and her positive energy on the day was a blessing as she very naturally blended in the background and put everyone at ease. She took amazing photographs of the whole day, including beautiful pictures of all the details and decorations from the day itself, which we greatly appreciated as we can look back and remember all the finer details we worked so hard to include in the day.”
EVE & TOM
“We love every single photo. I can’t believe how truly beautiful they are.”
“I don’t know where to start! We love every single photo, I can’t believe how truly beautiful they are. We both had tears in our eyes looking through the gallery, they are just perfect. I know I’m going to get absolutely nothing done tomorrow for looking through them again and again! I don’t know how to thank you enough – I wish I could give you a big hug. Thank you so so much for feeling just like a friend and guest at our wedding.”
SUZIE & JAMES
"Liz is the most exceptional photographer."
“She can put you right at ease which is incredibly helpful when it’s your wedding day and you aren’t used to all the attention! She takes perfect formal photos and wonderful candid shots. I didn’t even realise she was there in some of the photos. There are so many wonderful ways she incorporates small things that are important to you but would go unnoticed by most people into the photos.”
EMMA & ANDREW
"I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Liz to anyone."
“I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Liz to anyone who asked me for an excellent photographer. We will certainly be contacting her again for any baby portraits in the future!! Film photography is beautiful as well and not every photographer offers that.”
EMMA & ANDREW
"The photographs Liz creates I almost didn't believe were real."
“Wow wow wow!! I don’t even know how to do this amazing lady justice. Liz is an insanely talented, welcoming, warm lady who even if you are completely nervous will put you at ease instantly with her kind heart. The photographs Liz creates I almost didn’t believe were real – until I experienced it for myself. She manages to capture the inner beauty of everyone and her images are just utterly dreamy and most importantly when it comes to your wedding day, totally timeless. I can’t thank you enough Liz, we have some truly precious memories to look back on for years to come.”
EMILY & STEVE
"You knew every aspect of the whole day which made things flow so seamlessly."
“One of the best things about Liz is her knowledge about the timings on the day of the wedding – we appreciated so much her going through our rough timeline so thoroughly and moving things up and down when she thought we hadn’t allowed enough time etc. The final timeline we worked out together was just perfect on the actual day! It helped us so much knowing that the timeline was based on actual knowledge from her experience rather than a stab in the dark from us!”
EMILY & BEN
"We were so excited when we got the final photos..."
“…Although seeing a few sneak peaks on social media before we received the final pack of photos was so fun too as we weren’t expecting them! Being able to relive the day through the photos, especially the very first time we saw them brought back so many fun memories. We also very much appreciated the ‘outtakes’ in the group shots because some of them are filled with so much fun and laughter and having that captured (and not deleted and never seen again) is so special.“
EMILY & BEN
"We can’t praise Liz enough."
“Liz works in a fun and relaxed way, yet she is totally professional. She has such a wonderful, kind manner and provided the exact photo experience we dreamed of. She took care to find out in detail what we wanted for our wedding and from the get-go, she was sensitive to our needs. Liz was able to show us her published work across the web which we were really very impressed by.”
RACHEL & ROBIN
"I've had praise for our wedding photos from all over the world."
“Choose your photographer thoughtfully. It will make a difference both on the day and for years to come when you bring out your albums. All our guests loved Liz and her photos. I’ve had praise for our wedding photos from all over the world, as well as work colleagues. She has an excellent eye for ‘that perfect shot’ which we had made into our first Christmas card. She knows her stuff!”
RACHEL & ROBIN
"The photos are in a different league."
“Liz really listened to what it was that we were hoping to achieve, she went out of her way to ensure she had really understood and put us all at ease. The photos themselves are just beautiful. Liz captured unfeigned emotions and poses ensuring the images were natural and the light within the images is just stunning. This was our first experience with film photography. The photos are in a different league to digital, with a whole other dimension that makes digital just look plain in comparison. For a special occasion Film is definitely the way to capture your special moments. Anything else is just second rate and Liz will ensure you get the images you are dreaming of. We can’t rate her highly enough.”
"They are truly gorgeous."
“Oh my goodness, receiving our photos was SUPER exciting. It was such a treat at the weekend to look through these and bring back all those amazing memories of our day! They are truly gorgeous and really encapsulate the fun day we had!“
