Ian Bursill Photography

I love to see people happy! And I always feel honoured to photograph beautiful moments that capture amazing emotions of the day. I am fortunate to have a very good eye, combined with a genuine love of people. This is why I put my heart and soul into photographing weddings.

Since 2021 I have been second shooting with Ian Bursill and my love of seeing people happy shines from the frames I take of beautifully observed moments.

Photography has been one of my passions for many years, and the call to photograph weddings grew louder when I first saw Ian’s award-winning portfolio of wedding photography. My career has included organising and marketing fashion shows and working as a stylist where great photography was always essential. This experience is very useful now to help couples and guests to feel at ease, while working with venues to help the day flow naturally and smoothly.

I am inspired by Philippe Halsman for his extraordinary life story of surviving persecution, his work with Dali and for his iconic portrait of Marilyn Monroe which for me portrays her true essence. Halsman had a way of capturing candid emotion - through his use of jump photography “jumpology” . He said that when someone’s attention is focused on jumping, their true personality appears. His portrait of Marilyn was on my wall at university and whenever I think of it, I can feel Marilyn’s carefree spirit.

Hi Caroline I just wanted to get in touch to say thank you so much for being so brilliant and capturing such special memories at our wedding Where to start? When we booked Ian as our wedding photographer and he revealed that you would be joining him on the day we thought how lucky are we?! And we were right. You have been absolutely amazing - from the first zoom meetings where we discussed our vision for the day right through to picking our favourite photographs for the album Your photographs are just stunning and we love them! You were such a pleasure to have around on the day - you slotted in to such a point it was like you weren’t even there but judging from the photos you were absolutely everywhere! Your eye for seeing a perfect image is just incredible and you’ve captured such special moments. We couldn’t have asked for anything more.

From first interaction, to final receipt of our photos, the process, the approach and your service was simply stunning.

From the moment we met you, we could tell that you had a special eye for detail and a genuine enthusiasm for documenting the day. The photos you both captured of our special day were absolutely breath-taking. You were incredibly creative with your work and the way you captured the small moments of the day. Every moment was documented perfectly, from getting ready in the morning to the moment we said our vows. The photos were truly a reflection of the day and all the joy and love that was shared. When they were presented to us after the day, we were blown away, as we were able to see the story of the day and all our emotions came running back to us! You and Ian were both also great to work with during the day. you were friendly, professional and had an amazing eye for detail. You were very organised and we had many comments from our wedding guests saying how you actually blended in and were mistaken for actual guests. You were also very considerate and made sure to capture all of our family and friends in the photos without the need for a posed picture after a posed picture. You both truly captured the day perfectly, and the photos will forever be some of our most treasured memories. It was truly a pleasure to work with you and your photos were the perfect reminder of our special day.
