Whilst located in Basingstoke, Hampshire, I am willing to travel the length and breadth of the country and beyond for my clients. The reason for this is because I absolutely love weddings, “I’m a romantic soul, and I simply love being trusted by my clients to shoot their wedding day, whilst they celebrate with their friends, family and guests. Shooting the sublime details and gorgeous style you plan into your wedding day is one of my favourite moments – sentimental details, awesome shoes, gorgeous flowers, whatever it is I will find a way of incorporating these things into stunning images for you to treasure and remember.”
I am a people person, someone nurturing and reassuring, and I constantly strive to ensure you feel totally at ease as we capture your story, your moments and your images. My images are elegant, soft and feminine, and I specialise in abstract, beautiful photography and I have worked hard to perfect a true signature style over the years. I love natural light, blue skies and my favourite time of year is late autumn/early winter.
How did I get into wedding photography?
I joke that this has to be my calling, because Ikonworks is actually my second career. I was an executive PA for 16 years prior to this, but my husband’s gift of an entry level Nikon when our son was born was my first heart stopping step into an industry that my world now revolves around. I went to college whilst working full time, and was taught by one of the funniest, dynamic photographers I know – she enthralled me, and made me totally re-think what I wanted to do, and where my professional life was going. Ikonworks was founded in 2009, and I rebranded in 2014 with the help of a rather fabulous web designer by the name of Danny Fontaine. I have worked very hard since then to refine the business and work on what I hope you see, which is my complete dedication to my clients and my industry.
What inspires me when it comes to my work?
I am inspired by what I see around me within the wedding industry, and I immerse myself in it, meaning I am constantly surrounded by innovative and beautiful imagery (vintage to modern day), hardworking and committed industry suppliers and some of the most inspired business owners I have ever had the privilege of working alongside. People like Hannah from Hannah Elizabeth Bridal, Danielle from Penton Park, Marie from Isabella Weddings, and of course Tracey from Chanticleer Brides. These are the people who inspire me on a day to day basis because they strive, as I do, to ensure your wedding day is absolute perfection.
Where do my prices start?

I am asked this all the time – what advice would you give to Wedding Ideas readers who have yet to choose a wedding photographer?
Pick very carefully! These photos are the only thing you’ll really have left after the wedding, apart from your outfit, some cards, and possibly a guest book. These pictures are priceless, never forget that.
Check if they have insurance! Boring I know, but so very very important. I do incidentally!
Make sure you click! I’m a huge advocate of pre-wedding shoots, and I strongly believe they can serve as very useful bonding time between the client and photographer. As a photographer it is so important to get a feel for how someone interacts with the camera before your big day. The other significant thing is a photographer mainly deals with the bride to be through the planning process, having this time therefore allows for the groom to get to know the photographer as well. When you think about it, this is hugely important and makes sure he does not feel self conscious in front of a camera wielding stranger on your big day.
Make amazing first contact! Yesterday I wrote an article for Wedding Ideas on just this subject – take a read of it here and be inspired… There is loads of information in it, from not only me but other stellar photographers from around the UK.
