Yvonne Lishman - UK Wedding Photographer

I'm a Scot based in Nottinghamshire and I photograph weddings in the UK and internationally. Photographing weddings is freaking fabulous. Since 2006 I've shot tonnes of weddings and picked up a few accolades on the way.

Back in the day I trained and worked in the NHS as a medical photographer but wedding photography's much more fun. There's a lot less blood for a start! I've been a primary school teacher and education officer for the RSPCA too. At school, I wanted to be a vet or an opera singer!!!

I'm an animal-obsessed, nature-loving, child at heart, a vegan who believes kindness is everything and laughter truly is the best medicine. I have a loud laugh! I have two senses of humour - one silly and childish, the other dark and utterly warped. I believe in ghosts! I also believe that pugs, cats, The UK's Lake District, and Ryan Reynolds all prove the existence of a higher power at work in the universe. I once saw a duck sleeping at the side of a pond, it was dreaming; I’ve wondered ever since what it was dreaming about! You don't happen to know, do you?

My couples are down to earth, they are in love with photography and allow me the freedom to photograph their day as it really happened. They often share my love of animals and of being connected to nature. And they love to laugh. Their weddings are all about the music, the food, and the people. They want photos of happy love and of people having a really awesome time. Nothing staged. Just authentic in the moment photography that will always remind them of how incredible it was to get married. How bloody freaking totally epic it felt to be there. And of how much fun everyone had in one day. My couples love life but they don't take it or themselves too seriously. Like me, they are here to live it to the full. Is this you? Because I can't wait to meet you.
