Bristol wedding and baby photographer

I’m Melanie

I’m a highly qualified wedding photographer, newborn, baby and child photographer based in Bristol. I've won handfuls of awards for my work and absolutely love what I do. I have a background as a lawyer, but changed career 15 years ago and have never looked back. When I’m not behind my camera creating imagery, then I’m usually to be found editing at my desk, always with a half shot latte.

My aim is to tell your story. Whether that’s your wedding, your newborn baby, children or family. We will chat to discuss your exact requirements, and you can be sure I’ll put my everything into your commission.

My work is refined, artistic and beautifully finished. I am devoted to providing you with a super experience, resulting in beautiful photographs, which last - forever.

I adore creating pieces of art. Pieces that you will hang on your walls or an album of beautiful images which you will admire for years to come. Pieces which become heirlooms and which will be handed down through the generations.  

We live in a digital world but the printed image *is so* important.  Printed images are archival. They become tangible memories which will last forever.

Providing a full service to my clients is very important to me. I want you to receive your photographs printed, by whom I believe to be the best lab in the world, beautifully finished and presented, so that in years to come, you aren't panicking about how you will read a USB or disk.  

Please get in touch, and let's talk about the experience I can create for you.


Your Wedding

I love weddings.  I love the sheer emotion that a wedding day elicits.  The joy between a couple as they commit to each other.  Your story is unique, and I aim to capture the love, beauty and emotion of your day.

I don't carry out the latest trends, because I want your wedding photographs to be timeless. So you look back on them in thirty years from now, and still love every single one. 

I have fifteen years as a Bristol wedding photographer. I also photograph weddings throughout Somerset.

I have photographed over 150 weddings in many venues including Coombe Lodge, Ston Easton Park, Priston Mill, St Audries Park, and Babington House  to name just a few.

Every wedding is incredibly important to me and I treat every wedding as if it was my only wedding. I'm yours for the day.


If you are getting married in Bristol, Bath or Somerset and looking for beyond beautiful Bristol weddding photography then I'm the girl for you.  I photograph in a professional unobtrusive manner and create beautiful story telling images of your day. 

"I have just logged on to look at our wedding photographs.  They are so beautiful!  Thank you for everything you did.  You were absolutely amazing and so many people commented on how hard you worked and how professional you were.  I can't stop looking at them!"

I'm a highly qualified wedding photographer and a member of the British Institute of Professional Photography.  I love to photograph weddings of all sizes, whether small and intimate or larger and more formal.  I live in Bristol but I can travel to and photograph you anywhere you like!
