After 7 years of capturing weddings I have met some incredibly talented people. There are many that I have worked with many times over and here are just a small few of my favourite recommends. Most are based in Cornwall & Devon but almost all will travel! Except the venues. That would be pretty hard.

If you are still looking for your perfect venue, there are so many places to chose from that all offer something quite unique. But if, like me, you love to be outdoors and want to have a venue that is is by the sea or in the middle of a woodland, or you just want a space you can truly chill and have for the weekend, here are some of my favourite places I have had the pleasure of working at before.
