Introducing your wedding storyteller

About Catherine


I am a professional wedding photographer specialising in weddings in Sussex, Kent, and Hampshire.

My style mixes contemporary, relaxed, reportage shots with the classic poses that will last a lifetime.

The success of my photography comes down to having skills and experience that the bride and groom can trust with a friendly approach throughout. It’s your day, and I will do all I can to capture the memories of your wedding for you to keep forever.

I’ve spent over a 15 years behind the lens, with a background in photojournalism.

Before specialising in wedding photography in Sussex, I worked at the Guardian newspaper for six years, before moving to Reuters, the largest multi-media news agency in the world. From St. Peter’s Square in Rome for the election of Pope Benedict, to the stands of the Stade de France in Paris for the Champion’s League Final, I’ve edited some of the world’s most arresting photography.

Outstanding Testimonials

WOW, AMAZING. We are blown away with your photos. Absolutely fantastic. It felt more like having a friend taking our shots and spending the day with us. So many people commented on how friendly you were, so it was a pleasure having you around.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We just got back from our honeymoon and logged on (didn't manage to look whilst away) and you have made us so happy!!! The photos are absolutely incredible Catherine! We were expecting them to be great, but you really have blown us away. All our friends and family have looked at them and everyone has said what a wonderful photographer you are - so many compliments from everywhere!!

Theresa & Chris Ardron. High Rocks, Tunbridge Wells

You did a fantastic job and all our friends have said that they have not seen such good pictures from a wedding. You were brilliant and made us look so beautiful which I never thought anyone would be able to capture in a photograph!

Sophie & Richard Askew. Hertford & Ponsbourne Park, Herts

Now we've both come back down to earth a bit, I just wanted to let you know that we both think the photos are fab! There are lots of lovely and funny moments which you have captured perfectly and we are very happy with them.

Theresa & Chris Ardron. High Rocks, Tunbridge Wells

You did a fantastic job and all our friends have said that they have not seen such good pictures from a wedding. You were brilliant and made us look so beautiful which I never thought anyone would be able to capture in a photograph!

Sarah Phillips (Rosie's mother), Rosie & Al Watson. Ditchling & Lewes, Sussex

Our daughter Rosie and Husband Al, have come home this weekend and brought their absolutely stunningly beautiful album that you have produced for them. It recreates that day so perfectly, and sensitively. It is an absolute treasure.

Jackie Thrussell & Moira McKendry. Claremont Hotel, Hove

Right from the first contact, Catherine was warm informative and put us completely at ease. On the day she blended in with all our friends and family and captured intimate, candid photos that truly caught the spirit of the day. We were thrilled with the results, as were our guests. We strongly recommend Catherine as your photographer for your great day.

Heather & Matthew Waghorn. Staplefield & Slaugham Place, Sussex

Catherine is the perfect wedding photographer. She has an excellent eye for a good photograph, but she blends in like one of the guests so people are not aware of her taking the photographs, which means she captures the atmosphere of the day.

Lucy & Jeff Crowe. Chilston Park, Kent

It's amazing that you captured every part of the day so perfectly. We cannot recommend Catherine enough! She was fantastic both before and on the day itself. Her enthusiasm and energy really came across on the day and all our guests commented on how professional and organized she was. Absolutely delighted.

Cynthia & Phil Bergin. Haywards Heath & Felbridge

Words cannot express how great all the photos are! WOW! Have had a look through all of them and they are absolutely fabulous. We kept saying last night, 'How did she get that shot?, Where was she?' You were phenomenal at really being behind the scenes and capturing the moments! We have been in tears looking through so many of them! So, so pleased and we will be telling everyone just how fantastic you were.

Caitlin & Steve van der Ferris. Seaton, Kent

I love every single photo! You also seem to have captured our best sides. You were a fantastic photographer as you blended into the background with the guests and we hardly even noticed you taking photos.

Lavender Line

I took my train-mad toddler to the Lavender Line railway at Isfield, near Uckfield. I was secretly pretty chuffed too. Partly it's the beauty of the graphic colours and typography of these old trains. And partly a nostalgia for my childhood trips out. Complete with a greasy spoon cafe and old fashioned tickets.
