I live in a fairly normal house with my far from normal husband (don’t tell him!) & two very loud children. I have an incredibly inquisitive boy and a real chatterbox of a girl (have no idea where she gets that from?!) My son totally blows me away with his curiosity and intelligence & my daughter definitely cracks us all up as the resident family clown. Her giggle is infectious. I could not live without any of these people here – they are my world. Recently, I rescued a lil kitten from Rutland Water who we named Gandalf. For someone who is normally a dog person, I could not live without this furry sidekick.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Before Life as an East Midlands Wedding Photographer….

I was a primary school Deputy Headteacher in Essex and incredibly dedicated to this profession. I gave it my all, but, when my kids came along….my life totally changed, as it does. Photographing my children from birth practically every moment, re-ignited the passion for photography I had from when I was a child. A friend asked me to photograph her family and my new career began from there. I now photograph both families and weddings in and around the East Midlands.

I wish I started years ago because I bloody love what I do!

 

It’s such an honour to be chosen as someone’s bad ass wedding photographer. To be invited in, hang around the main stars all day and document all the tears and laughter. I am so lucky to have couples who laugh a lot, who aren’t bovvered about having the best wedding because they need to beat Karen off that Facebook, or, couples who place tradition above having fun. Their day reflects them. Their day allows the guests to have fun and their day means there will plenty of photographs to tell their story.
And, of course, weddings are usually in abundance of my absolute favourite food group…. CAKE! Cake is soooo delicious, I’d happily skip a meal and replace it with a slice of cake. Easy, peasey, lemon drizzle pleasey! So there ya have it, I photograph weddings because of all the cake & laughter!

Some random facts about G-Unit: 

♥  I was a contestant on ‘The Chase’ in 2019. One thing off the bucket list ticked off!
♥  I don’t like the combination of balloons and kids because I never know when the kids are gonna pop them & I hate that bit.
♥  I have travelled a fair few places in the world. Last count was 90 cities in 23 countries.
♥  I spend most days of the week convincing myself or someone at home there is a reason to celebrate with cake
♥  When people blow ‘raspberries’ it hurts MY lips. I get a weird annoying vibration sensation in my lips.
♥  I am a huge Harry Potter geek. Every wedding helps my Harry Potter World visit fund. Accio holiday!
