Hello, I’m Vickie, an Award Winning Chester and Cheshire Wedding Photographer. I specialize in creating Natural, Beautiful Wedding Portraits. Jam Packed with Emotion, Moments, Colour, Vibrancy and Energy.

Heart Felt Wedding Photography Style

My Wedding Photography style is Story telling. I love photographing weddings as every clients wedding is unique. Similarly to a traditional photographer I photograph the main events of a wedding day, but more importantly I document everything in-between. I like to tell the clients wedding story as it unfolds. My eyes and ears are trained to capture every natural moment. I snap away at the happy, sad, funny and joyous moments. People often say to me ” I prefer photographs of me when I don’t know I am being photographed. “ This style can be conveyed as many titles, such as Photojournalist, Documentary, Story telling, fly on the wall, candid, Reportage and Natural. This is what I’m good at.

By photographing all I see, I pride myself on giving couples their wedding story that they can cherish for years to come. Take a look at my Wedding Gallery for more examples of my work.


Kind words by Leanne & Kevin married at The Cheshire Woodlands ” The Wedding Photographs are absolutely stunning and capture our day perfectly! We love looking at them and reliving the day. We asked for mostly natural Photographs and that’s exactly what we got!” Google Review

Fun Wedding Photos

Chester Zoo Wedding

Although I have been recognized as a Alternative wedding photographer, I wouldn’t say this is strictly my style. I am a bit of a Hippie myself, so this may show in my work. I am always open minded to any ideas the bride and groom may have. So if you have any ideas for fun group photos or fun couple shots, please share them with me. Having fun should be part of your wedding day.

Fun moments can be captured naturally or they can be prompted by including events that encourage emotion and reactions. Confetti throwing is a traditional event, but can bring a lot of colour and fun to your day. The more confetti the better. Another traditional event that I don’t see very often any more is bouquet throwing. This has been heaps of fun when it has been done. Other examples are a sparkler Exit or a smoke bomb group shot. Please see examples in my gallery.

A little bit of information on Chester if you are thinking of having an elopement wedding. Chester is a cathedral city and is the county town of Cheshire. Based on the doorstep of The Wirral, Liverpool, and North Wales. The city is rich in Roman history and is famous for it’s Roman walls and amphitheatre. Chester Cathedral is 1000 years old and with Europe’s finest example of medieval carvings. This is a fabulous place for an elopement wedding as there is just so much to see and do for you and your guests. Whilst I’m based in Cheshire, I am more than happy to travel anywhere in the UK to photograph your wedding day.

Why Photography really resonates with me

I love the way a photograph can take you back to a significant moment in time. That moment can bring back lots of feelings and emotions. I view the use of Photography as being detrimental in life, especially when documenting moments that shouldn’t be forgotten.

On a more personal level an image of a loved one helps you hold on to those memory’s of how important that person was to you, and the joyous moments you spent with them. Your wedding day is one of the most important days in your life, and in my opinion that should be documented. Taking photographs is a natural way for me to express myself. Photography is a device that I can use to document all those things that inspire me. And in turn, makes me want to express myself.

Cheshire Wedding Venues

Cheshire has such a wide variety of wedding venues to offer. I am often hearing of a new venue that I’ve not heard of before. Along with your Stately homes and Manors, Cheshire also offers more unusual settings such as castles, Chester Racecourse and one of my favourites Chester Zoo. North Wales, The Wirral, Liverpool, Lancashire and Shropshire are all surrounding areas of Chester and are also filled with amazing wedding venues. You can’t possibly not find one that’s fits you.
