I’m a romantic at heart, I always have been, and it probably comes from my love of Disney and the belief that everyone will find a happy ever after. That is why photography means so much to me. To me it’s not just an image I am creating but it’s a story, your story. Your love to be showcased in beautiful images, exactly how you are.
I don’t strive for perfection but for that organic, sentimental and natural moment whilst giving direction to get the best image of that moment for you. Your wedding photographs will be an investment. Images to tell your story, capturing a treasured moment in time.
I do not try to make you look perfect, stiff, or unnatural. I want the real you, the emotion of the day, the fun moments and those looks of love. Freezing that moment in time for you to look back on and remember how you felt at that exact moment.
Right at the beginning of your story…
On your wedding day, I will arrive on the morning to cover all the fun and pampering of preparations (approx 2 hours before service) before heading to your service venue of choice to meet your other half.
Then how long you would like me to stay is up to you. I have two options. Option 1 is coverage to just before your meal (approx 5pm). Option 2 is coverage until you take to the dance floor (up to 10pm)
You will receive a beautiful downloadable highlights slideshow set to music.
This is a great excuse to get the bridal party over and have a few drinks, to celebrate all over again
You will receive your all edited images (400 min) on an easy sharing private online gallery. The gallery is completely downloadable for you to print as and when you choose.
This is also an amazing way to share your day with your loved ones and let them relive the day all over again. I aim to have your gallery back to you 4 weeks of your day (6 weeks in high season)
I can offer you a range of beautiful albums to compliment your day. Albums can be added on booking or anytime after your wedding. Guests these days like to gift money and this is a great way to purchase your album after the day itself.
My online system makes selecting images for your album super easy. Albums can also be delivered directly to your home address if preferred. Production of albums once proofed by you is 2-3 months.
If you like what you have read I would love to book your wedding in the diary! All that is required to hold your date is a 25% booking fee of the option you have chosen.
I would love to meet up with you for a chat over a coffee to discuss your wedding plans and get your date secured. I do know though how life is super busy so if you are happy to go ahead booking can be done online.
Melissa did such an amazing job with our wedding photos. From the time we first met her for the getting to know you shoot she made us feel so relaxed in front of the camera. Not only is she an amazing photographer but she is also such a lovely person to have around on your wedding day. We are pleased with how the photos turned out... they are so natural and perfectly reflect our day! Would highly recommend Melissa as a wedding photographer. Thanks so much, with love Mr and Mrs Bell 💕💕xx
We are just back from honeymoon and got your amazing previews! You can't imagine how happy we are! I swear I've had tears of joy...from dad too! We just think you are amazing! I can't believe how fab the photos are.
You actually made me look beautiful...both of us. ~ Toni Daly
Every photograph taken by Melissa captured our day perfectly. From the getting to know you session Melissa’s personality being so warm and friendly made us all feel so much calmer about having a camera around our daughters loved Melissa as did all our guests at our wedding .
We are amazed with Melissa’s work and she will always be someone who was a special part of our day ~ Charlotte Finlay
I highly recommend Melissa, I live in Australia so I don’t really know the area and didn’t know any photographers so picking a photographer was a bit nerve wracking. But meeting Melissa for the first time was like meeting an old friend she just fit right in with all my crazy family and friends! When we realised we didn’t have enough car space for all of us, Melissa happily carted us around and even brought us for snacks when we were feeling a bit hungry! I’ve received the photographs today and she captured my day just how I imagined, it was perfect. Thank you so much Melissa!
Melissa what can i say such an amazing girl. She made myself and Graeme feel so relaxed on the big day and made us laugh throughout.
We have two children and she was great with them knew exactly what to do to keep them occupied. Our Album is beautiful we were both so happy we picked you.
Melissa is absolutely brilliant - she is so easy going, professional and had answers to all my questions quickly. I think the photos are great value for money. I explained to her specific members of my family who I wanted to capture precious memories of and she did exactly that, in such a subtle thoughtful way. Not only is her photography skillful, she has an approachable friendly attitude ( and a great Instagram account, which also caught my eye). She made everyone feel comfortable and captured our day perfectly. Thank you Melissa ❤💕
