So, I’m finally getting around to sharing a few of my favourite images from 2018 & there were so many beautiful weddings!
I started the year with some amazing weddings in New Zealand, I shot elopements in London & Italy and stunning weddings all over the UK. My brides were stylish & modern wearing everything from designer gowns to high street palazzo pants. Short dresses, sequin gowns, embellished veils, velvet heels, tulle, lace & vintage silhouettes. I had such a blast capturing each of these weddings & working with such wonderful, relaxed, fun couples.
Lots of gorgeous intimate elopements including a stunning elopement at Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo, Lake Como, Italy and a rainy London elopement in Islington, Hampstead & Shoreditch. So many beautiful weddings including a picnic wedding on Hampstead Heath, an elegant black tie celebration at Town Hall Hotel in Bethnal Green & a relaxed, boho country house wedding at Pynes House in Devon. I also shot lots of modern city weddings in London, including a tropical disco wedding at the Ace Hotel in Shoreditch, an autumnal wedding at the Asylum Chapel & Hawskmoor Guildhall, a pretty river cruise wedding at Chelsea Town Hall & the salon at Spring, Somerset House and an elegant, informal outdoor wedding at Orleans House Gallery & The Bingham in Richmond.
In 2018 I was named one of the Best Wedding Photographers in the world by Condé Nast Brides Magazine & I’ve had weddings featured in Rock My Wedding, the Rock’N’Roll Bride book, Brides magazine, Whimsical Wonderland Weddings, Love My Dress & Martha Stewart.
I’ve put together a short slideshow with some of the highlights (click on the image directly below) & you can also scroll down to see more.
Here are just a few highlights from 2018. So many more beautiful images to see & lots of features coming out in wedding blogs & magazines in the coming months. Dates are filling up fast for 2019 so get in touch to book your date now.
“We never wanted anyone else. She never fails to capture the small, intimate and emotional moments. Since we planned to have no one with us, we knew our choice of photographer would be even more important.
Our day wouldn’t have been the same without Gen. She was an amazing presence the entire day, and so much more than a photographer. She even sewed the strap of my dress back on when it broke just as we were about to leave. She made us feel so relaxed and was so calm, helpful and friendly.”

“I found Miss Gen online and absolutely fell in love with her style, she has an amazing eye to capture and present the best representation of a wedding. Although I shopped around, I kept coming back to her website so I knew we had to try and get her to come and do our wedding. And it was the best decision, the pictures are just amazing, we couldn’t have asked for anything better – thank you thank you thank you!”
Julia & Duncan
“Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you!!!
The photos are absolutely incredible – more than we could have ever hoped for.”
Sophie & Ryan
“They are AMAZING. We just wanted to say thank you again for the most beautiful, emotive photos. We honestly felt like you captured the day through our eyes and the attention to detail was unbelievable. We’ve never seen wedding photographs as wonderful as what you’ve given us. A million thank yous for all of this and of course for making the trip up to see us.”
Sarah & Daragh
“I just wanted to say a massive thank you for our gorgeous wedding pictures!!! We absolutely love them, they are all brilliant and you’ve captured the day so well.
We loved having you there celebrating with us.”
Jess & John
“Thank you so much for the photos. They’re simply brilliant. We’ve had so much fun going through them (again and again). It was a pleasure working with you and I’m so pleased to have had you to capture our special day. I’m already trying to find reasons to book you for a couples shoot next year 🙂 Our decision to elope was definitely the right one for us and your photos capture so many sweet moments of just us.”
Lynn & Gareth
“Miss Gen was lovely to work with, she was great at communicating before the wedding and was really calming on the day. She took so many natural photos that really captured the day. We loved all of the photos and have had so many compliments on them. She also created a lovely slideshow of photos to songs which was great.”
Sinead & Russell
“Sooo we got home an hour ago… and we’ve watched this 3 times already. It’s amazing! Every photo tells a story, and every shot is beautiful. It’s so cool to see the day unfold chronologically too – really brings back so many memories (and more than a few surprises!). Honestly, you’ve made our month/winter/rest of year with this – we’re so happy!”
Taz & Paul
“A million thank you’s – these are just perfect, Gen! They brought us both to tears! You captured exactly what we hoped you would!”
Laura & Patrick
“Oh my goodness! Gen – you NAILED it! Those pictures are amazing and captured the evening perfectly. We’ve watched the preview a few times now and every time I’ve cried. Thank you so much – these mean so much to us. Cannot wait to see the rest!!! :)”
Kara & Olly
“Gen, these are INCREDIBLE. Thank you so, so, so much. xxx”
Claire & Thom x
“I can’t really put into words how much the photos mean to us. You captured the day and all the special moments in it so, so beautifully. We both cried looking through the gallery, it was so perfect.
Your service from start to finish goes above and beyond what we ever expected and we are just so, so happy with everything! Thank you!”
Alice and Tom
“Gen – we’ve both watched the slideshow so many times this evening and are completely over the moon with the photos. You’ve captured the day so perfectly – the light, the atmosphere, everything! The slideshow is beautifully curated and the music is wonderful too.
Massive thank you again from us both :)”
Emily & Julian
“They. are. incredible! We immediately sent the link on to everyone we know and the unanimous feedback from our friends and family is that they are not only blown away by the beauty of your shots but also your ability to capture Tom and I as well. We are so excited to receive the full edit. You were perfect on the day, so calm, relaxed and unobtrusive that we in turn relaxed and enjoyed our day completely. Thank you so much from the both of us, it wouldn’t have been the same without you.”
Alice & Tom
