“What can I say about Kirsty? Well firstly, before anyone reads the rest, the first line is the most important right so, KIRSTY IS AWESOME! (I think it about sums it up but I will continue).

I (the bride) and my husband had very different ideas about photos before we got together. I personally love photographs being able to look back at memories and had a keen amateur interest in portrait photography. Ashley wasn’t so bothered about photos as he didn’t have many of him as a youngster and just thought I was sentimental for no good reason! Yet as our relationship progressed and particularly when we had our daughter, he saw how special it was to have photos, how important it was for our little girl to be able to look at memories of her life so far and recognise her family members and friends and for us to have moments to look back on to show us how we had gotten to this point. By the time we got engaged and were thinking about what we wanted for our day, it was important that we got a photographer that was able to encapsulate us as a family. Our mad bonkers family that can’t pose to save their lives. Our wedding was simple in essence, no fancy frills, just a lot of food and drink and colour and we needed a photographer that could get all of that, blend in and most importantly feel comfortable enough to join in. And that was Kirsty. When I stumbled across her profile on social media, how she captured the fun and love of a day is what caught me. What caught my husband was her use of the natural light and features around to make the photos more real, like moving images caught in one still moment.

She was calm, funny, put up with my terrible sense of humour and dealing with our families. She met us on several occasions to discuss our day, was completely understanding on the day when I had my one singular bridezilla moment (just the one) and provided a well needed hug. We never felt that she was imposing, her and her colleague Alyssa just fit right in. I always thought that I would look back on my wedding day and wished I had done ‘this’ better or ‘that’ better, posed more, smiled more appropriately, or covered that tummy (that I could be as cool as my husband) but every photo we received from Kirsty from Our day made me beam and relive that bit of the day all over again. So thank you Kirsty for being AWESOME and giving us photos to be proud of and treasure for the rest of our lives! We both feel we have a friend for life and I truly hope so. (p.s. She’s AWESOME).”

“You can tell a lot from a website and we knew immediately that Kirsty was right for our wedding day. Our initial search was alternative wedding photography and Kirsty was one of the top matches. As soon as seeing one of the weddings from her portfolio it was clear she had the eye we wanted. The way she captures peoples emotions combined with the energy is great!

 
From day one communications were very easy including meeting for a coffee to discuss our ideas. We got on very well and could have spent hours chatting. Deposits, paperwork and payments were all clearly outlined and agreed and we organised a pre-wedding call to finalise the finer details.
 
On the day, as we expected, Kirsty was on time, well-prepared and a pleasure to have at the wedding almost to the point she was like a guest. She blended perfectly in to the day and as we requested, organised the shots we pre-discussed. With a few extra ideas plus the great use of the smoke grenades it all went amazingly!
 
After some teasers and instagram posts after the wedding, a few weeks later we had our sneak peak of the photos which told an amazing story of the day and we were so happy with the result. Excited to see the full package it was sent a few weeks later and it absolutely lived up to our high expectations, along with a beautiful box, some treats and with her personalised memory stick.
 
Kirsty is the ultimate professional with a very creative eye and she captures fun, energy and colour in alternative ways. It says a lot when not only are you very happy with the photos on your wedding day but you end up arranging to meet up for drinks with your wedding photographer.”

“Kirsty,
These are absolutely spectacular.
 
You have captured the fine detail, funny and intimate moments as well as the vistas and ambience so well.
Thank you for saying such nice things about our wedding – we obviously had a great time and love our friends and family, and you have managed to do a fantastic job in capturing that love on film and more than anything we love the brilliant facial expressions which really reveal the natural characters of a lot of the people there.  So special.
 
The photos have warmed our hearts as well (and brought a few tears to my eyes) and we have been able to relive such a great day through them.  Cannot thank you enough.  We are so lucky to have had you us with on such a special day in our lives.  
 
The downside of now having these photos is that we have to face the thank you cards!
 
Thank you so much.
 
Best wishes from us both and good luck with all of your adventures to come!
 
Love Maddie and Will”

“Kirsty was our wedding photographer in June 2017 and our day was perfect.

Kirsty is amazing, her attention to detail is outstanding, she is a great organiser and replies very promptly throughout the planning process!

She is super efficient, very easy to get on with, gets things done, and fits into any situation. I loved having her at the house the morning of the wedding while I was getting ready. Her assistant, Alyssa, also did a fantastic job of capturing my husband and his groomsmen getting ready and making their way to the Church (via the pub!). We had lots of comments from wedding guests about how lovely Kirsty was.

I couldn’t recommend Kirsty high enough as a Wedding Photographer. She goes the extra mile to make your day so special. The pictures brought back some fantastic memories! Thank you so much Kirsty for capturing our special day- our photos mean the world to us!

Anna & Tom xx”

“Where do I start with Kirsty? She was EXACTLY what we wanted in a photographer as she just wanted to get fun and laid back shots with little posing (we’re not very good posers!) and she totally blended in with the party, and managed to take so many photos without making anyone feel uncomfortable or like they had to play up to the cameras.

Our couple shots just the two of us felt totally natural and ‘us’ – and it was all down to her friendly, relaxed vibe. I felt so comfortable!

There’s SO MANY AMAZING reasons why you should book Kirsty as your photographer, and I don’t think I can even fit/list them all in here!
ON THE DAY: She blended in so easily with our guests, making them feel so relaxed and not like a camera was on them all the time – which is exactly what we wanted for our laid back wedding day. She also made my husband and I feel totally relaxed for our one on one photos, it didn’t feel like a chore at all (it was the part of the day, before I met Kirsty, that I was least looking forward to – I hate posing!) but it was lots of fun, over in the time we wanted it to be and then we could just get on with having fun.


THE PHOTOS: Oh my! I just love them so, so, so much! As predicted Kirsty really captured the fun of the day, and I imagine capturing people mid-laugh while also making them look attractive is really tricky! I was kinda dreading the photos after the meal as I was more than a bit tipsy but they’re all so much fun (and I look nice in them!) Her angles are just beautiful and she just sees beauty in so much, from the scenery to the way people are. She captured my amazing friends so well.


Um, this is turning into a bit of a gush but all I can say is BOOK HER! XXX”

“To Kirsty,

What a woman! I’m so glad we found you and I can’t even remember how we did! Your professionalism and passion shines through. You’ve been immensely reliable.

Having a lovely, kind and chilled person on the day was amazing and you gave us so many tips which was great as you have no idea what to expect!

The pics are great!

Love Sophie + Tom xxxx”

“We had a fantastic time working with Kirsty as our wedding photographer and felt she gave us excellent support at every stage of the process. We met with Kirsty several times before the day to talk over what we wanted, and found her questions and planning for the day form really helpful in sorting our ideas and timings. Kirsty even came with us to look round our venue in Leadenhall Market as it was such an unusual one, and gave us lots of ideas and confidence before the day.

We weren’t too into overly-posed or too serious-looking photographs so our brief to Kirsty was for lots of happy pictures of people smiling and natural shots, as well as some standard group shots.  We were amazed how well she had met what we wanted and it was so lovely looking through the photos and seeing everyone really enjoying the day – don’t think there was one in there where we didn’t have a huge smile on our faces!

On the day Kirsty was friendly and relaxed, (but totally able to get people in the right place when needed or give ideas for poses!) and lots of our guests told us afterwards how lovely they thought she was! All in all we had a fantastic experience working with Kirsty and would recommend her highly.

Katherine and Luke”

“There aren’t enough words to say how wonderful Kirsty is, not only as a photographer but as a person. From the very start of the wedding journey together at mine and my husbands engagement shoot I knew I was in good hands. She listened to all our ideas, took time to talk through what style we were going for, and even came with a list so I could write a list of photos that I really wanted to have. Kirsty has an eye for excellent light and finding beauty in the things you wouldn’t normally see beauty in.

Our wedding was in an urban industrial venue and Kirsty’s documentary style photography reflected it so well, every close up, every image of our friends laughing or crying were just so beautiful. We were so emotional when we received the images they were everything we wanted and more and she captured a beauty in the photos that encapsulated us as a couple. I could go on and on but my advise is to look at the proof in the pudding, her photos show you her talent, and trust me when you meet her in person you will see the softness you see in her images come through her personality, she is a true sweetheart.

Thank you Kirsty for making our day so special.
Callie and Dan”

“Kirsty is exactly what you would want from a Wedding Photographer! Her photographs are beautiful, natural and capture those little moments that you might miss. Not only that, she’s a wonderful person to have around on the day. She was a very calming influence in those last jittery moments before the ceremony, really discreet at the times you’d expect and full of life and fun at the reception!

We couldn’t recommend her highly enough, a fantastic photographer and truly lovely person. Love from Mr and Mrs Furnell xx”
