hey

congratulations

You’re getting married!

Time passes faster than you think and your wedding day goes by in a blur. I create photos that capture you, the emotions and your love story in a truthful, effortless way so that you never forget your wedding or the way you felt.

Because your love story deserves to be told.

And now here is my secret, a very simple secret:

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.

The Little Prince

YOUR EXPERIENCE

Choosing the right photographer to capture your wedding in a way that’s natural, authentic and beautiful can be difficult, I know.

Because I only take 20 bookings per year, with me you’ll never feel like “just another engaged couple”.

I’ll take the time to get to know you to create unique wedding photos filled with emotion that capture you just as you are: effortlessly in love.

Let me help you honour your love story by creating meaningful, emotive photographs in a natural and effortless way.

BE YOURSELVES, UNAPOLOGETICALLY

The answer is simple:

To get beautiful, natural wedding photos you need a photographer who cares and who will take the time to get to know you BEFORE your wedding. It’s my job to create a space where you feel comfortable and you can be yourselves, unapologetically.

To create a bespoke wedding experience for each of my couples, I only book 20 weddings per year.

THE MOST INCREDIBLE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Manon was the most incredible wedding photographer we could have asked for. Right from the very first meeting her friendly, bubbly personality made both of us feel immediately at ease. We are both fairly awkward around cameras, strangers and with being affectionate in front of people/in public making getting photos of us as a couple difficult but Manon managed to get hundreds that we love!

THE FOOLPROOF PLAN

Wedding planning can be overwhelming but I promise I will be with you every step of the way. I have a foolproof plan to get natural wedding photos you’ll love.

GETTING TO KNOW YOU

I have a whole workflow designed specifically to get to know you and learn what makes you tick. Part of this is to spend time together for the Surrender Session.

TIMELINE PLANNING

We’ll work on your wedding timeline together to make the best of your venue and the light depending on your priorities. I’ll share all my knowledge so you can make informed decisions based on what feels right for you.

YOUR WEDDING Day

At this point, we’ll know each other pretty well and be on the same page so you’ll be able to relax and just enjoy yourselves. This is when all the preparation really pays off and you can focus on what matters: marrying each other.

THE SPECIFICS

  • Complimentary Surrender Session and a “let’s get to know each other” meeting, usually in Brighton or London.
  • Photos carefully curated and edited by me.
  • Your own wedding gallery to share with your guests and shout to the world that you tied the knot.
  • All of your wedding images on an USB delivered in a beautiful, cute package.
  • Unlimited support and professional advice.
  • Unlimited video calls.
  • A curated list of my favourite wedding suppliers.
  • Your wedding gallery also includes an online shop with gorgeous products, like some beautiful thank you cards.

HOW TO BOOK

You want beautiful, natural wedding photos that capture the essence of the day and all the little in-between moments but also gorgeous photos of the two of you. 

Choosing the right wedding photographer is difficult. You need someone you can trust and who understands you but whose work you love and who will make you feel comfortable because your wedding photos will always be attached to the way you felt.

Weddings are more than just one day, they’re the sum of all the days that have led you here. They’re a celebration of your life story. Your love is unique and you deserve equally unique wedding photos.

1.

BOOK A CALL

Book a consultation call to talk about your vision for the wedding. I’ll ask you everything I need to know to prepare your custom proposal. This is also a good opportunity to find out if we’re a good fit to work together.

No strings attached and no hard sales, I promise!

2.

CUSTOM PROPOSAL

After our consultation call I’ll have all the information I need to prepare a bespoke proposal for you.

This will include your custom quote + all the information you need about how I work, payment schedule and what’s included.

3.

SECURE YOUR DATE

Given my limited availability, I’m unable to hold your date until the deposit has been paid. This is usually £500 unless we’ve made different arrangements.

Once this sum is paid, I’m officially your wedding photographer and I’ll turn down any other enquiries for your date.

EVERYONE LOVED HER

Manon was the photographer for our wedding and we couldn’t ask for a better person: creative, professional, precise, friendly. Everyone at the wedding loved her. She took stunning pictures and it was a real pleasure to work with her!

YOUR INVESTMENT

Time passes quickly and your wedding day will go by in a blur. Your wedding photos will keep those memories alive long after your guests have gone home, you’ve taken off your shoes, packed away your wedding outfits and many years after your loved ones are gone.

You want beautiful, natural photos that tell the story of your day and capture the essence of your loved ones.

Weddings are not just one day. They’re the sum of all the days that have led you here. They’re a celebration of love, friendship and all the values that are important to you.

CUSTOM PRICING

Every love story and every couple is different. Your values and your priorities are unique to who you are and your wedding day will be too.

Custom pricing means I can give you exactly what you need based your priorities are for your wedding day.

THERE IS NO “ONE SIZE FITS ALL”. YOU ARE UNIQUE AND YOUR WEDDING PHOTOS SHOULD BE TOO.

as a guideline, FULL DAY STARTS AT £1900

YOUR REAL LOVE STORY

Because it can be difficult to imagine what your own wedding will look like in photos it can be really hard to choose your wedding photographer.

YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

Choosing the right wedding photographer is a big decision, I get it. Here are some questions I get asked all the time which you might find helpful.

Do you offer albums?

Yes, I do!

Your wedding gallery comes with its very own shop with an array of beautiful print products.

Or you can choose to order a bespoke wedding album.

what's a surrender session?

A Surrender Session is an opportunity for all three of us to get to know each other. You’ll get comfortable around me and the camera and I’ll learn what makes you tick so that when we get to the wedding day I’ll be able to approach it as a friend rather than a stranger.

Learn more about my Surrender Sessions in this blogpost.

Do we have to feed you at the wedding?

Yes please!

When possible, I prefer to sit with your guests so I can really soak up the ambience and make sure I don’t miss a beat. I always love to get to know them and hopefully they’ll have stories to tell me about you.

How many photos will we get?

This varies greatly from wedding to wedding depending on how the blueprint of your day, the number of guests and what activities you’ve got planned.

As a rule of thumb, for a full day wedding it’s usually around 500 photos.

When will my photos be ready?

It takes me between 6 to 8 weeks to carefully select and edit your photos. 

Don’t forget that I only get one chance to get this right but they’ll last you a lifetime so I promise it will be worth the wait.

How will you send us the photos?

You’ll have your very own gallery t share with the world and you’ll also receive all your files on an USB stick in a cute little package.

Can I book a second shooter?

Of course!

I’m very used to working alone and you’ll be surprised to see how much ground I can cover by myself. Having said that, if you’re having a lot of guests or you want photos of the two of you getting ready separately it’s worth booking a second shooter to come along with me on the day.

How do I secure my date?

The payment structure will be outlined in your custom proposal. My suggested payment plan is usually as follows but it can also be tailored to your needs.

The first payment will be a non-refundable booking fee of £500 to secure my services and the remaining balance will be divided in two equal payments.

What does my custom quote include?

This will be outlined in your custom proposal because since every wedding is different, this can vary a little.

To give you an idea here’s what’s normally included:

  • Surprise welcome gift.

  • Complimentary Surrender Session and a “let’s get to know each other” meeting, usually in Brighton or London.

  • Photos carefully curated and edited by me.

  • Your own wedding gallery to share with your guests.

  • All of your wedding images on an USB stick.

  • Unlimited support and professional advice.

  • Unlimited video calls.

  • Dedicated client portal.

  • A curated list of my favourite wedding suppliers.

  • Travel and accommodation included (unless you’ve asked for them to be itemised separately).

  • Your wedding gallery includes an online shop with a selection of print products.

Do you do formal shots?

Absolutely!

Formal shots with your close family are really important. They’re not compulsory so you don’t have to have them, but your parents and grandparents will probably appreciate having some.

They’ll take about half an hour and we’ll carefully make a list before the day.

Can you send us the RAW files?

My job is to tell a story and for this, selecting and editing the photos is as important as taking them.

I don’t send out unedited pictures or RAW files.

Think of it this way: you wouldn’t expect a writer to publish his first draft for a book without editing and polishing it, right? This is the same. There’s a lot more to photography than just pressing the shutter.
