As a London Wedding Photographer, I am based in West London and love to photograph gorgeous weddings all over the South East and beyond!
My editorial yet relaxed style of shooting produces a beautiful fine art and authentic collection of wedding photographs that will become your most treasured heirlooms. I have a decade of experience and my couples feel comforted by the fact that they are working with a professional who also specialises in luxury client service.
I aim to photograph your day as naturally as possible. I will help make suggestions and offer gentle guidance to get the best and most flattering shots if needed however my main goal is to let your day unfold around me so that I capture it as naturally as possible and without interruption. I dress as a guest to blend in and it's important to me that photography doesn't feel like it takes over your day.
On wedding days, I am never just the photographer and I'm always there to safety pin a dress, pin on button holes, take veils out, top up the lippy, and even drive the bridesmaids to the church when their taxi breaks down. I know the schedule of your day inside out so I am on hand to help whip your ushers into shape and calmly assist the day to run seamlessly and to time.
My service is incredibly personal from start to finish, especially as I get to know you both better in the run up to your big day at your complimentary pre wedding shoot. So, once your images are ready, only a luxury private photo viewing with a glass of bubbly will do!
I have been a bride myself so I very much understand the level of trust you put into your suppliers for them to deliver their services on the most important day of your life. I have travelled. abroad for weddings, photographed in all weathers and with guest numbers from 15 - 400! Your day is just as important to me so I have multiple contingencies in place for your peace of mind and leave plenty of time for travel.
As I only take on a limited number of weddings a year, I am able to dedicate lots of time, care and attention to my couples. This also means that I can deliver a sneak peek of images within a week of the wedding and my full wedding image turn around time is just 6 weeks; whereas industry standard is 3-6 months.
Not forgetting that you get ALL the best images from the day which come unwatermarked with full printing rights, at no extra cost.
There's a lot to plan, and planning your day around photography coverage shouldn't be the case.
I want you to plan the day YOU want, and know you don't have to fit it all into 8 hours for the photography.
The whole day is yours when you book me and my team; up to 10 hours, which easily covers bridal prep through to first dance.
Plan relaxed yet sophisticated celebrations; barefoot beach ceremonies, grand flower arches, exquisite city venues, vibrant live music, exclusive styling and laid back weddings at home.

Samantha & Rupert
We were so lucky and pleased to find Philippa for our wedding. She gave us such an amazing experience from start to finish.
In order to deliver a luxury and personal service to my couples, I take on a limited number of weddings a year and provide tailored custom collections based on your needs.
Our diary fills up fast so please get in touch to receive my e-brochure and book in a discover call so we can create a custom proposal for your special day.
Your wedding coverage is carefully curated to suit your wants and needs. No one wedding is the same; perhaps you need a custom quote for a two day event, an elopement or just a couple of hours of ceremony coverage.
We are more than happy to accommodate extra special requests and collection tweaks to suit your needs and budgets. Let's schedule a couple's discovery call and from there I will gladly create you custom packages tailored to your needs – taking into account location, wedding party size, and more. Investment for micro weddings begin at £720 and weddings begin at £2500.
After the wedding day, the delicious cake will be eaten, the beautiful flowers will wilt, and aside from each other and your rings, all you will be left with from the day itself are your photographs; memories which will last a lifetime and preserve your love story for generations.
Amos & Emily
She was so kind, patient and open with us when handling some of the more sensitive parts of the day: from fine-tuning the smallest details to filling us with confidence and reassurance with some of the more daring photo opportunities (taking photos on Tower Bridge in front of tourists!)

Louise & Ross
Right from the very beginning, Philippa made us feel excited and like we were in very safe hands. She remains in constant communication throughout the planning purpose and is unbelievably organised. Including a test shoot is such a great idea (even if you have a reluctant groom, as I did!) because it made for beautifully natural pictures on the day.

Nicola & Matt
She has become a friend, I was able to ask for her advice many times throughout the planning process of the wedding and she was wonderful in helping to keep me calm on the big day. She even gave me some rescue remedy just before the ceremony as I suddenly became so nervous whilst getting into my dress!

Gemma & Will
Philippa is the perfect wedding photographer - she managed to capture everything in such a natural way. The images are better than we could have ever imagined! It was such a pleasure to have her there on the day and she just blended in like a guest.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
A booking form with t&cs needs to be completed and signed by us both and I require a 25% deposit to secure your date.
We do not offer videography services, however we have worked closely with and can highly recommend Ash Videography, I Will Video, Together We Go Studio and HD Moments. All take a similar natural and unobtrusive approach to your wedding day.
I’m sorry I am not able to offer discounts as all weddings require the same time and skill to delivery a luxury service and quality images.
Our photography services are custom for each wedding client and are built on your needs so if you are on a budget, we can work together to find a happy medium.
Absolutely! I love to travel all around the UK for a wonderful wedding therefore travel is included in all full day Wedding Collections. For locations further than a 2 hour drive there will be a 1-2 night stay required which is an additional cost.
I am a very keen traveller and have been lucky to shoot weddings abroad, my favourite being in Menorca. I'd absolutely LOVE to hear about your destination wedding plans!
Travel and accommodation is not included in our destination wedding prices. The travel quote would be added to your selected collection, and I handle all of my own travel arrangements unless otherwise specified.
Yes, myself and my team all have our own indemnity and public liability insurances.
In these very unlikely circumstances, we will always help to work alongside you and your planner to secure a new date.
I have never, to date, (touch wood) let a couple down or had to cancel coverage due to poor health. In the unlikely event that I am unable to attend your wedding, please be assured that I have a strong and large network and every effort will be made to supply you with a photographer of equivalent style and ability.
I shoot digital Canon 35mm cameras, and my team shoot a mixture of Canon and Sony. We always bring camera, lens, and memory card backups, and all of our equipment is regularly serviced to ensure it’s in full working order.
Both! Depending on your needs you can either be assigned one photographer or two. Having a second shooter is recommended if you'd like morning coverage with the groom, and/or weddings with 120+ guests or where the group shot list is particularly long. My second photographers will either be one of my associates or will be booked from my trusted list of second photographers that I always work with.
Yes of course, I view these as an important historical document and something generations of your family will look back at and enjoy. I assist in planning your list of photos and help you take into consideration the time of year and light restrictions, as well as allowing up to 5 minutes (sometimes longer) to set up and take each shot. A good number is around 5 combinations, and no more than 10.
Ultimately you will have chosen me because you love and trust what I do, but I do recommend bringing to my attention any special people, planned moments or unique details that I might not know to anticipate.
I take a very detail focussed approach which ensures that you'll end up with more photos than you could ever need or want.
Every wedding day is different and so we work withour couples to build coverage around their wants and needs for their wedding day.
Usually, coverage ends around 30 minutes after first dance.
In the unlikely event that there are delays and your plans are running later than planned, we won't pack up and leave without giving you the option to decide if you'd like to extend your coverage.
If you choose to extend your coverage, we will simply invoice you after the day for the extra time, which is £150 for one photographer or £200 for two per hour.
Weddings - up to six weeks after the event
Celebrations - up to three weeks after the event
Family and Portraits - up to two weeks after the shoot
For weddings, it depends on length of coverage, number of guests, second photographers and additional events, but expect anything from 500-1000 high resolution files.
For smaller events, 250+ images.
As a natural photographer, I want your images to look like you, so light retouching is included if necessary which may include blemish removal, slight under. eye touch up, teeth whitening and cropping. Any adjustments made are minimal as my preference is to delivery natural clean representation of you.
I do also offer outsourced professional retouching for more extensive requests which are quoted on an individual basis and would require your approval before proceeding with any additional work.
Yes! In a digital age, printed photographs are just so special and I offer beautiful printed products from including albums, wall art and prints.

The simple answer to this is no, and this is because raw files are unedited photos that do not reflect the final product and work of a photographer. It would be like Picasso handing over a line drawing of a painting... 'RAW' is also a format that most people don’t have the software to support so you wouldn't be able to use or. view them anyway.
