Hi I’m Nicola and I’m a documentary wedding photographer and videographer or as I like to put it, a creative story teller. I use my camera to document and record beautiful weddings all over the UK and world wide. 

I set up my Bristol & Somerset wedding photography business in 2014. Since then I have had the honour of shooting many weddings each year. I now also class myself as a film maker and have added wedding videography to my business taking story telling to a whole new level with my cinematic wedding films.

I am thankful every day to be doing something that I truly love, it is honestly the most amazing job and I am always delighted when anyone asks me to photograph or film their wedding.

My goal isn’t to win awards or get thousands of likes. It is simply to tell your story and give you images and films that will trigger memories and make you proud for many years to come.


Couples generally choose me to photography their wedding as they love my laid back easy going nature. They know I will try and make it fun, help them relax and let them be themselves. I won’t ask them to stare into my camera or do any awkward posing. 

A lot of my couples say they feel uncomfortable in front of a camera, don’t worry I understand as I feel the same! Feeling this way has helped me develop little ways to help you relax, getting you to interact with each other, playing fun games and creating those natural photo’s.

My alternative style will allow you to enjoy your wedding day but will ultimately leave you with stunning, creative unique images.

If you like how I work then please get in contact. I would love to hear from you.


I live in Bristol with my boyfriend Christian and our rather spoiled cat Tigger (the destroyer). He is our naughty little ball of fur who has some how turned us into crazy cat owners (I never thought it would happen but it did).

We love the outdoors and on days off you will generally find us by a beach or getting lost, exploring the middle of nowhere in our VW Camper van. We are hoping one day Tigger will want to come along too so we don’t have to leave him behind. Adventure Cat training has begun!

My favourite things in the world are travelling, meeting new people and experiencing new cultures. I also love going to the occasional festival, I don’t get many weekends off but I do try and go to Glastonbury most years, living so close to Somerset it would be rude not to.


I would love to hear all about your love story so far and what you have planned for your special day. 

Feel free to ask me any questions you may have. You can either fill out this form or contact me directly.

I’m excited to hear from you!
