Choosing a wedding photographer is a big decision. For your peace of mind, I have over ten years of experience photographing weddings both big and small, amidst the countryside and throughout sprawling cities. I’ve worked with hundreds of incredible couples, creating beautiful fine art photographs that can be treasured forever.
I’ve captured almost every style of wedding you can imagine and worked in an array of prestigious venues throughout the North East, from grand castles to intimate art galleries, and even a tree house stowed beneath an enchanting woodland canopy!
In order to give you my full creativity and unwavering dedication, I only accept a limited number of weddings each year. I believe you should both feel confident and comfortable when you step in front of my lens. As well as technical knowledge and experience, I know how to be someone you’ll want to spend the day with, someone who’ll soon feel like an old friend. My relaxed, unobtrusive approach will put you instantly at ease and allow you to be your true, uninhibited self on a day that demands honesty and authenticity.
Here are some of the wedding venues I’ve been lucky enough to return to over and over again…
Healey Barn – Brinkburn Priory – Eshott Hall – Le Petit Chateau – Newton Hall – Seaham Hall – Middleton Lodge – Doxford Hall
Durham Cathedral – The Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art – Rockcliffe Hall – Wynyard Hall – The Samling – Alnwick Gardens
The Treehouse – Old Horton Grange Farm
From the moment we booked Katy, we felt completely supported; we knew exactly what was going to happen and we received a comprehensive list of suggestions and tips designed to help her document our day with the best possible results. This was only the first sign of Katy’s immense professionalism and experience. On the day itself, we felt as if we had known Katy for years! Judging by the relaxed, natural photos of our guests, we imagine they felt the same. Katy is a wonderful person and made us feel completely at ease.

In order to document every precious moment of your wedding, I provide a full day of coverage.
Allowing myself plenty of time to capture all the pretty details and your bridal prep, along with some stunning shots of your wedding venue, I’ll arrive two and a half hours before your ceremony is due to begin. I’ll continue photographing for approximately 8-10 hours, usually up to and including your first dance in the evening.
Each and every client is important to me, so plenty of planning and communication before your wedding is automatically included in my fee. Before I take a single photograph, I need to feel like I know you well and I’d love to learn more about your wedding plans. We can chat via email, phone or text and I’m always happy to meet face-to-face, usually over coffee and cake!
Two weeks after your wedding, I’ll send you an exclusive digital preview of your day via email. You’ll then receive approximately 600 high-resolution digital images, all of which have full reproduction rights. I’ll beautifully edit your photographs by hand before presenting them in a luxurious USB box, personalised with your names and finished with hand-tied velvet ribbon.
At the same time, you’ll also be given access to a private online gallery that can be shared with friends and family. For an additional fee, beautiful
Our pictures are something we will treasure forever. So many people have commented on the fact that they capture the whole essence of the day perfectly. We never thought we could love photos of ourselves so much, and now our house is covered in them! They are more than we could have ever hoped for.

I love to travel and adore photographing weddings throughout Europe and internationally. Please get in touch to discuss your plans in more detail.
As well as capturing you and your partner at a special time of your life, a pre-wedding shoot provides the perfect opportunity to assuage any feelings of anxiety you might have about being photographed on your wedding day. It’s also a great way for us to get to know each other better and ensure you feel completely at ease in front of my camera.
This service includes a one hour photo shoot. Initially, you’ll receive your beautifully edited images via a private online gallery that can be shared with friends and family. For an additional fee, professional quality prints can be ordered via this link if you wish. Later, you’ll be given the full set of digital images alongside your final wedding photos which are presented in a luxurious USB box, personalised with your names and finished with hand-tied velvet ribbon.
‘We opted for a pre-wedding photo shoot in addition to our wedding photos and it was everything we hoped it would be and more. My husband and I imagined that it might feel really awkward having our photos taken, but it was the complete opposite. Katy made us feel so relaxed the whole way through and we ended up with photos we’ll cherish forever.’
