For you, your wedding is a celebration of present, past and future and all those that are a part of it! You wish to create a day that is unique and personal to you. It will be remembered for being fun, relaxed and surprising for all.
You’re inspired by unusual, quirky venues. They are a platform for your own ideas, whether classical or bohemian, in a church or at the seaside, during a festival or even on a mountaintop! You’ll likely be breaking away from some of the old traditions. Perhaps you will have a few new ideas or touches of your own but most importantly It will be personal to you and combine all the things that make you happy. You appreciate the little details that will make your day unique, like a few of your own handmade decorations, perhaps a game or two to get people talking, a playlist of the sounds from your life together so far or even sharing something new – like a passion fruit and marshmallow wedding cake! Its not about perfection, it’s about the showing how much you care and expressing what interests you.
Hello I’m Katy, the founder of Katy & Co. Wedding Photography. I am a dedicated and passionate wedding photographer. I love to photograph weddings as I get to meet interesting people from all walks of life, It also takes me to new and exciting places I may have otherwise never have known. There is nothing more rewarding than capturing one the most memorable days our lives, knowing that family and friends will look back to my photographs for generations to come.
In 2011, having trained with and personally assisted some of the best documentary photojournalists and wedding photographers in the UK, I was inspired to start Katy & Co. The business has grown to become a collaboration between myself and my partner Wayne. (we are a wife and husband team!) Over the years we have brought together our various artistic backgrounds of photojournalism, graphics, art and architecture to craft a style that is natural, beautiful, narratively focused and cinematically styled. When i’m not photographing weddings I love to read, draw, design and make books, swim, go on country walks and most importantly explore new and exciting things to eat!
Our roles on your day
On your wedding day I (Katy) will be working closely with Wayne to cover your day in all aspects and perspective. We believe having two professional photographers is very important as sometimes it helps to be in two places at the same time. Having one of us each in the lead up to your ceremony, we also give an equal weighting to both bride and groom, which is always a lovely surprise when you receive your album. Wayne also manages the logistics of the day, keeping track of timings as well as guiding guests during the family formal and group photo sessions. He is also a fantastic photo editor, which is critical during the post-production stages.
Our modern approach to wedding photography is friendly and free from pretension! Incorporating documentary-style realism with cinematic flourishes we aim to record all your memorable moments in beautiful, honest imagery. Relax and enjoy your day as we blend in with your guests, nothing contrived, re-enacted or cheesy! We will just capture everything as it happens naturally.
We aim to photograph the essential, memorable moments of your ceremony as well as documenting the minutiae and personal details that make your day individual to you. Couples frequently tell us that with so much to think about, they appreciate us having our active input and advice on planning and logistics (Wayne’s forte!) and taking the initiative – giving direction where needed! Your wedding day is all about you and your story. We like to get to know you before the day, so you feel relaxed and can be yourself as we document your unrepeatable day! In our experience, the better we know you, the more natural and genuine the photos we capture. We love working with creative couples whose weddings is a celebration of their personalities as much as their love.
