Fun, relaxed, Natural Wedding photoGRAPHY

Creating images that tell your beautiful story

I don't pose I capture moments!


Hey, I’m Nicola a Bristol based female wedding photographer. I specialise in lifestyle/ documentary wedding photography & creative couple portraits. I also have a Photo Booth for hire.


My style is laid back and relaxed, I know your wedding day is all about having fun with your best friend and celebrating with all your favourite people. I want to capture these special moments for you as well as create some amazing wall worthy photos that you will want to show off forever!


Don't worry if your not good in front of the camera. I don't get you to pose instead I try to make it fun, get you interacting together instead, playing little games and generally doing your own thing. This way you should forget all about me and you will be smiling at each other in no time.


As a Bristol wedding photographer I primarily work with couples throughout the South West but I love to travel so I will happily go anywhere in the UK or abroad for the perfect wedding just get in touch, I would love to hear from you!

Image Paradise is a Bristol wedding photographer, covering Bristol, Bath, Somerset, Gloucester, The Cotswolds & beyond!


You are looking for wedding photo’s that tell your epic story. You want fun natural wedding photo’s of you having an amazing time. Exactly how it happened on the day, no awkward poses, no fake moments, just a true record of your day. Capturing the roller coaster of emotions that comes with it.


You want a wedding photographer that will make you feel at ease, spending as little time as possible capturing the mandatory family formals. Allowing you to spend more time with your guests partying and enjoying the day with them instead.


Your wedding

You could be getting married outside with a festival theme, maybe you've picked a gorgeous converted barn, a stately home or your having a traditional church wedding.


To me all weddings are special no matter how big or small. I have photographed large weddings with over 250 guests and small elopements with just the bride and groom.


Each and every wedding is unique and special and it would be an honour to be there with you as your wedding photographer.


My Experience

My Bristol & Somerset wedding photography business was set up in 2014. Previous to that I had spent two years studying professional photography and had the privilege to train and work with some of the best wedding photographers in the industry.


Since then I have photographed many weddings each year, working in all types of venues and weather conditions. I now photograph weddings all year round and this experience has been so valuable.

Why Choose me

Deciding on your wedding photographer is a big decision so I hopefully by seeing my wedding photography portfolio that you will find something that reaches out to you.

Perhaps it's a picture of an emotion bride as her father walks her down the aisle or guests laughing at the best mans speech. Maybe it's just the natural but creative portraits that I take. Whatever it is I want my work to speak to you emotionally.

My Style

My style is relaxed, I promise I wont interfere with the running of your day. Instead I will take a documentary, reportage approach blending into the background.

I strive to capture those special moments as they unfold, leaving you with timeless natural wedding images that I hope you will treasure for many years to come.
