HELLO! I’m Rebecca! Mother, Wife, Registered Veterinary Nurse and Photographer from Wiltshire, UK - Based in the South West just outside the beautiful World Heritage City of Bath.
The veterinary nurse who fell in love with wedding photography...
I live in a little town called Melksham in Wiltshire, with my wonderful husband Jonny, our daughter Connie and our recently acquired pet fish (Hello new hobby!) We got engaged in November 2017 during a Winter weekend in Bruges, Belgium - Jonny popped the question while we were sat on a bench surrounded by loads of swans at Minnewater Lake, since then I always feel so nostalgic anytime I see anything swan related (Connie's nursery is totally swan themed!) I absolutely love to travel and experience new places, so a destination proposal was so perfect! We now have such a special memory from what will always be one of my favourite trips and favourite places. We got married at our beautiful local church in our hometown in August 2019 with Clarence as our little ring bearer.
Our house is cream cream cream!… Which among friends and family has turned into a little bit of a running joke because I just can’t commit to any other colour, I'm just not a decision maker! But what I do know is that I love the style of our home to be really minimal, bright, and full of light! This really shows through in my style of photography as I love light, airy and natural images that will still be timeless, elegant, classic and romantic in years to come.
I qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse back in 2014 and photography has always been such a huge passion of mine. In October 2018, I decided to leave my full-time job and take the big leap into the world of self-employment to pursue my passion for photography further! – I'm so glad I did, as I've since had the opportunities to work with and meet the most wonderful couples and other wedding suppliers.
I still work as a Veterinary Nurse on a self employed basis during the 'off peak' time of wedding season, but even during the busy wedding season I still love to pick up the odd shift here and there so I can put my energy into both of my passions.
I’m a typical home bod so when I’m not working you’ll most likely find me at my parents house with my Beagle Clarence, or cosied up at home on the sofa listening to Bruce Springsteen (I'm a HUGE fan, borderline obsessed... Bieber who!?) with a huuuuuuge cup of green tea and a bourbon biscuit! (ok maybe more than one biscuit) - We had a handful of nostalgic Bruce songs from my childhood scattered throughout our wedding day. I actually walked down the aisle to the saxophone solo by Clarence Clemons, from 'Bruce Springsteen's - I Wanna Marry You' which growing up has always been my 'Mum & Dad's song' and is also who our Beagle Clarence is named after and where he got his name from!
Clarence is my family dog so lives with my parents, but I still consider him my little fur baby...
Speaking of babies, we welcomed our first baby in June 2020, our little Connie and honestly she has just filled us with the most joy and my heart is so full! It makes me feel so grateful everyday that I am able to work on my business, but now I'm filled with so much more purpose and determination as it's all for our little family!
If I haven't bored you enough by now after my rambling and you are still here reading, feel free to take a look around and If you are looking for your wedding photographer or looking for a couple’s photoshoot then I would love to chat with you and hear all about your plans! - Or if you just wanted to chat about Beagles, Bruce, biscuits, babies, the veterinary world, photography or fishtanks then that's ok too! Just drop me a message and I'd love to chat with you!
PS... Dogs at weddings, in my opinion are always a good idea!
