Ready to become a Christina
Sarah Bride? Let the fun begin!
You’re engaged! And I'm thrilled you're here!
Here’s everything you need to know about my approach and what it really means to work with me…
Client care is so important to me, therefore you can expect timely emails, wedding vendor recommendations to suit your needs, special touches (well if I told you what they were wouldn’t that spoil the surprise?!) and access to 'The Wedding Experience' Guide which is full of expert advice, helping you create your dream wedding while making the most of your wedding photography on the big day.
It's important to me that you understand, my service goes way beyond 8 hours on your wedding day…
Here's what one of my 2018 brides had to say about her experience way before any click of the shutter…
”I'm so glad you're our wedding photographer, you really go above and beyond to make your clients feel special! Can't wait for our engagement shoot now that we are 6 months away”
With this in mind I only accept a limited number of weddings each year allowing me to fulfill my 5* service.
My number one goal is for each of my couples to feel special, cared for and most of all excited about their wedding photography. With this at the forefront of my mind I have created a service that offers each unique couple an incredible EXPERIENCE!
Wedding photography should be one of your most important investments when planning your big day. After all once your big day is over, you will leave your reception with a spouse, your weddings rings and your pictures.... that’s it! All of that planning and preparation is over in a matter of hours! This is why I go above and beyond for my clients to ensure they have a wedding album that they will love for a lifetime! If wedding photography is very important to you I would LOVE to send you my wedding experience brochure. Feel free to share a bit about yourselves and your big day here and we can go from there.
After getting to know you online a little, we’ll determine if we’re a match made in heaven and then we’ll move on to the booking process!
Now let’s make sure your date is safe and secure so that we can make this dream a reality!!! I’ll now send a custom booking proposal (to your email inbox) where you can review your package and pay your deposit to secure your date. Now that we’re official, it’s time to get started!!...
Let the fun begin! After you book, we’ll schedule your engagement session (if this is something you’ve added to your collection). And don’t worry... I’ll be walking you through every step of the way! I pride myself on being able to put my couples at ease, helping them feel comfortable and themselves at the e-shoot. After the first 20 minutes of your session, you will wonder what you were worried about even if you previously thought that you weren’t photogenic or that your fiancé “hates having pictures taken”. After your engagement session you'll receive your sneak peek and then a few weeks later you’ll also be sent your online gallery of images to download and share however you wish.
Once we’re 8 weeks away from your big day, I'll send over a wedding day information sheet for you to fill in which includes an area for your wedding day timeline. This is when we’ll start making sure that we’re completely prepared and ready for your wedding! By this time you'll have received your copy of 'The Wedding Experience' Guide which will help you to create the perfect timeline that ensures you don’t miss out on your dream wedding photos! It’s my pleasure to share my expertise on how to create the perfect timeline for a photography-friendly wedding day!
Here it is! The moment you've been waiting for, it’s time for you to relax and enjoy every second of this wonderful day while you let me get to work! I believe in telling the full story of my couples wedding days and so I rarely shoot less than 8 hours (unless it's a special elopement). A few of my favourite parts of the wedding day are bridal preparations, my portrait time with the newlyweds and hearing those funny and emotional speeches (it's hard not to shed a tear too sometimes)!! After the wedding day, you’ll receive a sneak peek of your gorgeous images while you're still on cloud 9.
I’ll be with you every step of the way from your engagement shoot to your album designs, I’m here to make your experience unforgettable!
Here's some fantastic advice from one of my favourite UK wedding venues Hedsor House regarding your wedding gallery...
"When you get your photos back after your wedding, make a night out of it and play your wedding playlist, eat and drink food similar to your wedding breakfast and make sure you wear your wedding perfume and aftershave - try to engage all the senses for a full memory overload that takes you right back to your special day!" ~ Jennie Hopcroft
Your first decision as an engaged couple is to set priorities for your wedding planning. You have to decide what you value most. Is it the dress? The food? The Venue? As a bride AND photographer, I believe that couples should make their photography a top priority. After the big day is over, you will leave your reception with a spouse & your pictures.... that’s it!
All of that planning and preparation is over in a matter of hours! So if you’re choosing to invest in high quality photography, those images deserve a classy, elegant home after the wedding.
I offer high end, leather bound Fine Art Albums for my wedding clients. The images are printed straight onto the pages and the covers are wrapped with top grain leather. This is the perfect ending to The Wedding Experience and it’s a keepsake that you will be showing your children and grandchildren one day!
couple for yourself…
We thought long and hard about the photographer we wanted for our wedding day. We really wanted great memories to look back on. We knew we wanted light and bright so we liked Christina’s style and by the time we spoke to her we were sold.
It’s so important you like your photographer, you spend a lot of your wedding day with them. She was so warm and welcoming on the day, not just to us but all of our guests and really put us at ease.
She arrived a few hours early to set up and scope out the venue which we really appreciated. And most importantly, her photos were incredible. She gave us a sneak peak a few days after the wedding and we were so overjoyed with how they turned out. In the lead up to the day she went above and beyond, sending us a gift and her wedding guide book. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience - thank you Christina!

"...The wedding highlights slideshow made me cry with happiness, it is just perfect.”
Christina!!! Thank you thank you thank you for our absolutely amazing gallery! We cannot believe how beautiful all of the photos are (and how many there are!). We have loved viewing them over the weekend and sharing them with our family & friends. I could spend all day looking through them and re-living our favourite day.
The wedding highlights slideshow made me cry with happiness, it is just perfect.
We are so grateful to have found you, you are so incredibly talented and have captured our wedding day in the most beautiful and best way possible! Everyone absolutely loved you at our wedding, and it has been so wonderful getting to know you!
