More than just a snapshot. It’s your Connections, Expressions, Emotions and all the things that make you, you!


This is 99% of my couples!


Creating amazing natural wedding photos and films is all about making you relax, feel comfortable infant of a camera and most importantly letting you be yourselves. If you are having fun together, you will always bring out the best in each other, after all, that is why you have chosen to marry your partner in crime.

After many years as a Bristol wedding photographer & Videographer I know it is my job to help you forget that I am there. When creating your wedding images, I make sure the experience I provide is dedicated to the two of you. I will get you to interact, walk, talk, play little games together. Little things that will make you smile and laugh with each other, your connection will do the rest.

Hi, I’m Nicola


My love of people and travel has naturally led me to a career as wedding photographer and videographer. Witnessing human interactions, love and kindness and being able to capture that with my camera is very special.

I document and tell people’s stories all over the world. I have visited many beautiful locations and met so many wonderful people. No wedding is too big, too small or too far.

Reasons to hire a relaxed wedding photographer

  • Your wedding is all about having fun together and celebrating with all your favourite people.
  • You want to spend as much time as possible hanging out with your guests.
  • You think real moments are more precious than posed.
  • You want relaxed, less formal style photos.
  • You want all the funny, emotional and little moments captured.
  • You want someone who will blend in and not take over your wedding day.

Your wedding Your way!

Whether you are keeping things fairly low key or going all out and pushing the boundaries on norm. Your wedding day is all about the two of you, celebrating who you are as a couple. I encourage you to embrace your personalities and be your absolute true selves. Hire a Bristol wedding photographer that will 100% get you and capture you exactly as you are.

I won’t hold you to tradition or say that things need to be done in a certain way. My relaxed wedding photography is all about you, it’s your day, your way and I can’t wait to be there with you to celebrate and capture everything for you!
