Real wedding:Sallyann & Harry set in a family garden, Glos
Congratulations, you found your forever!
I LOVE capturing people’s emotions. It’s the reason I photograph weddings. I love seeing the happy smiles the love and the fun weddings bring. Documenting this is a joy. It really is the best job in the world.
Who I am!
I'm a documentary wedding photographer, capturing a true representation of your wedding day. I love to work with you in a natural way, keeping couples’ portraits relaxed and un-posed and working with your unique personalities.
Whilst I love candidly documenting every single detail of the day, I actually hope to blend into your day and almost go unnoticed.
I’m a cheerful, fun loving person with a positive outlook on life – I love people, Haribo and anything that makes me laugh until my face hurts.
My style is perfect for anyone that doesn’t like having their photography taken. Every couple who books me, tells me they hate it. They tell me they don’t like the idea of awkward poses, which is good because I don’t like awkward poses either. I’m interested in what is unique and individual about you. I want to create a truthful representation of your special day which showcases your colourful personality.
My main goal on your wedding day is to keep you calm and stress-free. I am totally dedicated to you from the moment I arrive in the morning right through to when the party dies. I am passionate about marriage and dedicated to putting in the effort and the hours to make sure the most important day of your life is documented in a beautiful and memorable way.
You are just a coffee and a chat away from hiring a quirky, relaxed and unique wedding photographer.
You’re looking for a natural photographer who gets you and will dedicate the time needed to capture the fun and emotion. Great, get in touch and let’s have a chat.
Prices start at £1000.
You get me, at your wedding all day, I don’t cap hours. Your photos individually edited in my own style. A private gallery to share around. Travel is included up to 1.5 hours of Bristol.
Here are 3 of our our most recent weddings.
"We used Lesley for our wedding photography and I can truly say she gave us the most fantastic service and made our day more perfect. When I initially contacted Lesley she suggested we met over a coffee and discussed what we were wanting from our photographer and she could explain how she works and show us examples of her work. My husband and I were a little nervous about the photographs as we don’t really enjoy having them and didn’t want it to take over the day having lots of photos. Lesley instantly made us feel at ease and listened to what we were after from a wedding photographer. Following the meeting we confirmed we wanted to book Lesley and the package we wanted. We met Lesley twice after this once for a pre wedding photo shoot which was incredibly useful as she was able to see how we were most comfortable having them taken and also helped us to relax having our picture taken. Lesley also then came and looked at the venue so that she knew where to go and also what the surroundings were like. On the day Lesley arrived with plenty of time to get the picture of us getting ready and stayed and got all the photos we were after and some of the dance floor shots we were after. The quality of the pictures are incredible and tell the story of the whole day with lots of natural shots as well as the important group photos. It’s a struggle to put into words how pleased we are with the pictures she captured the whole day fantastically from our first sight of each other to the dens under the tables. When the photos, usb and dvd arrived they came in the most beautiful personalised presentation boxes which added that something special. I would strongly recommend to anyone getting married to contact Lesley and book her, she provides an outstanding service that is great value for money. In our opinion she is the best wedding photographer you could book!"

"Wow! Where do I begin? From the first moment I met Lesley she was always professional and had a eye for detail. On our wedding day she made me feel calm when she was gathering up different items to photograph. We gave her a list of photos which we wanted but looking through our professional pictures we got so much more than what we expected! She commanded all our guests and made sure our photos looked amazing. We also had the photo booth in the evening which went down like a treat with all our guests as they were able to let their hair down and be crazy! If you are looking for a photographer who goes above and beyond, who gets the pictures when you are relaxed throughout the day I would definitely recommend Lesley. We forgot she was there at times as she does get all the natural pictures throughout the day of yourself, your partner and your guests! Again a huge thank you Lesley we look all our photos!!"
Lutcia & Matt
"From our pre-wedding shoot up until our wedding day Lesley was very professional and always ready to give us advice and ideas for the best pictures. We wanted relaxed pictures and the ones Lesley took are perfect. Both of us were nervous about the whole wedding from planning to making it the perfect day and Lesley helped throughout the whole process, even helping Lucy to stay calm whilst getting ready on the big day. The photos are perfect and would highly recommend Lesley."
Lucy & Andrew
"Our wedding day really was the best day of our lives and the photos Lesley took perfectly captured it all. The effort and hours that Lesley put in were commendable. Her dedication to ensuring our memories were depicted in beautifully natural photos has meant we get to re-live the wonderful day each time we look at them."
