Meet Berni

Follow me


I’ve been photographing weddings for nine years, but photography has been an important part of my life for as long as I can remember. I never knew I would end up specialising in weddings. I’m completely hooked and feel so lucky to be able to do a job that I absolutely love.

No two weddings are ever the same – each one is a story I feel honoured to be able to witness and tell. The spontaneous, emotional, documentary nature of wedding photography is what I love the most – quietly and artistically capturing the essence and vibe of such a momentous day.

Having spent a lot of time researching Russian modern art, in my 20s, the visual aesthetic now has a massive influence on my photography style. I try to bring art into every piece of my work.

Ultimately though, my priority is to enable your own story and personality to come out through my photos. ‘Cause it’s not about me – it’s all about you!

Some random facts about me


I’m originally from Bacoli, a tiny, historical town not far from Naples, Italy. If you’ve never heard of it, Google it – I promise you won’t be disappointed!


I studied languages at University (Russian and Polish) and this has given me the unique opportunity to travel and experience places not just as a tourist. So far, I’ve been lucky enough to have lived in Moscow, Los Angeles and now England.

03 i’m still deciding whether I am an introvert or an extrovert

I’m naturally drawn to people’s stories – what makes them who they are and what their purpose is. People and stories intrigue me… which is why I always prefer an intimate 1-2-1 conversation over small talk in a crowd.

04  were they really on a break though?

I’m a massive ‘Friends’ lover (I could watch the episodes a million times!) and have
recently been obsessing over ‘Schitt’s Creek’ on Netflix.

My own wedding

intimate & relaxed - just like us

Paul and I got married on a super sunny day in May 2017, in Perugia, Italy – on our son’s first birthday.

Our wedding day was one big celebration of friendship and life. An intimate ceremony surrounded only by our family and closest friends. It was the only time when people from different chapters (and countries!) of our lives spent some time in the same place. Wherever we looked, all we saw was love.
Experiencing my own wedding definitely made me a better photographer, so I’m equipped to capture yours.

Berni cares so much about her work and creating a beautiful story.

She took time to find out about us, our story and what kind of vibe we were looking for.

On the day she was friendly, unobtrusive, caring, thoughtful and captured the happiest day of our life in the most beautiful way.

There are so many wedding photographers out there but Berni is truly exceptional and I can’t recommend her enough.
