One of the Best Wedding Photographers in the UK 2016

One of the 100 Best Wedding Photographers in the World 2015

"I expect like me you’re creative and unconventional, even a bit eccentric. You find lots to laugh about and love conversations. Photography’s important to you and while you’re happy your guests will be photographing your wedding all day long on their iPhones, and maybe you’ve got chums with super duper cameras too, you want the best wedding photographer for the job, a quirky and creative one, not in the least traditional, and one you’ll get along with like a mate."


I cannot sing Yvonne's praises highly enough. Not only a wonderful person to know, she is a true artist. Yvonne has left us with a truly wonderful tale of our wedding day and for that we will be for ever grateful. Thanks Yvonne! :)

Yvonne was our photographer for our wedding in July 2013 and gave us memories to treasure forever. She was professional but also approachable and made the whole experience a pleasure from the start of the process to the end of our wedding day. Yvonne has an alternative view towards wedding photography and a sense of humour which ultimately provided us with photographs and an album which is unique. Thanks again Yvonne for helping capture the essence of our special day.

We got married in May last year and Yvonne is the lady responsible for our amazing wedding photos and our truly unique and emotional record of the most special day of our lives. As I work in the photographic industry as a Stylist - the photography of our day was so important to me and I thought it was going to be a difficult task finding the right person for what we wanted, but Yvonne was one of the first photographers' work we came across that we loved - and once we met her - we looked no further. She has such a great personality and is so well suited to what she does. She's fun and easy going, quirky and creative - but always professional. She just got us straight away and that really shows in our shots. She listened to want we wanted and remembered the small things we had discussed making sure she captured them on the day as well as the other amazing ones we weren't expecting!. Our photos just show the whole vibe of the day perfectly - A perfect mix of action shots and details - and some hilarious moments. Yvonne isn't your usual wedding photographer - in fact I'd say she's more a great photographer that happens to shoot weddings. She doesn't spend time shooting groups of relatives lined up in a row looking awkward - her shots capture everyone enjoying the day, chatting, drinking, dancing, laughing. She has an amazing eye for detail and spots things that you wouldn't have even thought of. She's not only a fab photographer, but we found her a fun and relaxed person to have around us on our wedding day. It's surprising how much time your photographer is around you all day so her light hearted easy going approach made our day so easy. Half the time we didn't even realise she was there which meant we could just get on with the important stuff - having fun. I'm sure that if we hadn't had such a great relationship with her - our photos wouldn't have been so natural. Out pre wedding portrait day was where we really got to know Yvonne - we had so much fun that day - we'd never been photographed before so it really put us at ease for the wedding day. We knew from those shots how good our wedding photos would be and we had nothing to worry about! The other great thing about Yvonne is her after care - we didn't get forgotten about for weeks - like I've heard other photographers can do, we had our shots when we were told we would and every query or question we had - Yvonne got back to us so quickly each time. She really couldn't do enough to make sure we were 100% chuffed - we really were. We still email with Yvonne every few months to stay in touch, she's become a friend.

I contacted Yvonne having already fallen in love with her wedding gallery on her website. She captures something really beautiful, intimate and, most of all, fun from the weddings she's photographed. I wanted her for our wedding! I was over the moon when she said she was available. She was so incredibly friendly and we felt she really listened to what we wanted. I was quite nervous about being in the lime-light all day and about 'smiling properly' etc! But it felt the most natural thing in the World on the day as Yvonne gives such clear direction and makes the whole experience feel so wonderfully effortless. She went with the flow of the day so well, being discrete as we mingled with guests to creatively inspiring some AMAZING shots of us on our own. We all laughed such a lot! I'm absolutely thrilled with our coffee-table book and pick it up regularly, it never fails to make me grin from ear to ear. All of our friends have commented on the style of our photos, often with jealousy (!), over how fun and vibrant they are. I'm hoping to do a trash the dress session with Yvonne in the near future, I can't get enough of her photos!

Best money we ever spent! We had Yvonne as our photographer for our wedding in 2011. We weren't looking to spend as much as what was quoted, but after visiting her website and viewing the photos we decided to meet with her. We didn't want the 'normal' bog standard wedding photos that you normally get with wedding photographers and her style was just what we were looking for. She came to our house with some sample albums and the first thing that struck us was how natural and fun they looked. It took us a while to convince ourselves that the money we were going to pay was going to be worthwhile and we are so glad we did. The photos that Yvonne took captured every happy moment of our special day and when we look back at them we remember what fun we had. Yvonne was a pleasure to work with, she is professional but also easy to get along with. She really cares about the photos she takes and also listens to what you want too. Her ideas may seem a little out there but they do work. Pay for a wedding photographer and get wedding photos. Pay for a top photographer and get memories for life! Choosing Yvonne to be our photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. She has proofed every single photo that is going in our album and has been very patient with our busy lifestyles when we have taken a while to get back to her. If anyone would like to see our album don't hesitate to get in touch or contact Yvonne and see her work for yourself.
