Bristol wedding photographer & videographer

HEllo I'm nicola

I am wedding photographer & wedding videographer based in Bristol. I specialise in lifestyle/ documentary wedding photography & Cinematic wedding films. I love creating stunning modern couple portraits & creative night photo's to give you something that is alternative and unique.


I also have a photo-both 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, wow factor images that you will want to show off forever!


Don't worry if you're 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 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 and videographer, 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, please get in touch, I would love to hear from you!

You are looking for wedding photography that tell your amazing story. You want fun natural wedding photos of you having the most amazing time. No awkward poses, no fake smiles, just a true record of your day freezing all the special little moments and capturing all the roller coaster of emotions that comes with it.


You want a wedding photographer that will make you feel at ease, who will let you be yourself and won't interfere with your day.


You want someone who will capture all the photos you have asked for but will spend as little time as possible taking the family formals, allowing you to spend more time with your guests partying and enjoying the day instead.

Your wedding

You could be getting married outside with a festival theme, maybe you have picked a gorgeous converted barn, a stately home or perhaps you are 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.


Every wedding is unique and special and it would be an honour to be there with you as your wedding photographer or videographer.


My Experience

My Bristol 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.


Last year I qualified as a drone pilot and I am now registered and approved by the CAA with an operators licence. It was around this time I took more of an interest in film making and I now offer wedding videography as an alternative service.

Everything I do is based on you and your requirements. I want to make you happy, relaxed and assured you're in good hands.


Please feel free to have a look around my website and check out my Portfolio. If you have a little more time watch some of my Highlight slideshows or Wedding films.


I hope by seeing some of my work you will find something that reaches out to you. Perhaps that could be seeing a photo of an emotion bride as her father walks her down the aisle, guests laughing at the best man's speech or maybe it's just the natural but creative portraits or night photos that I take.
