Friendors - My Favourite Wedding Suppliers

At this point in my wedding photography career, I am getting to know some really lovely wedding suppliers. This is a beautiful industry, and whenever my couples ask me for recommendations, I’m always happy to name some fellow suppliers. So I thought, why not devote a page to some of my favourite ”friendors”? Please note that this list will grow over time, and I will try to update it regularly.

Most importantly, the people I tend to recommend are incredibly skilled in their fields and heartful, kind and generous people, which is very important. In addition, their personalities shine through their beautiful work.

Vaessen-Walker

I hired Louise to make my husband’s wedding ring and impressed her sweetness and professionalism. Her jewellery is gorgeous, and I love how high end it feels. One of the things I love about Louise’s work is that she pays attention to the ethical aspect, dealing only with fairtrade and recycled materials.

Celebrants

Nat Reybould Wedding Celebrant

I’m Nat, a humanist wedding celebrant, and I joyously celebrate the bold and the beautiful!

Why on earth should the wedding ceremony be the dull point in your amazing day?

When you work with me, the process of creating your 100%  personal ceremony is as much fun as the day itself. We chat, hang out, and get to know each other – and then, when you walk down the aisle, you will have a fab friend at the other end, ready to cheer you on, create an atmosphere of joy right from the off, and celebrate you both in the best way possible!

Let’s not rush that ceremony: let’s REVEL in it!

Celebrant Kathryn

Hi, I’m Kathryn (she/her). I create warm, joyful, unique wedding ceremonies for all couples who are making meaningful choices about their wedding day. Every bespoke ceremony I create is unique, with every word and element included in it chosen by you and originating from conversations between us as I get to know you both. I make sure that instead of feeling constrained by tradition and expectation, your ceremony is full of warmth, fun and joy, while still absolutely true to you!

I’m passionate about ensuring every couple can have a wedding that’s authentic and meaningful. Every couple deserves a ceremony that reflects them uniquely, authentically and celebrates their love, their story & their values. I am especially skilled in creating inclusive and accessible weddings that truly celebrate couples and individuals from the LGBTQIA+ Community as well as the Disabled, Chronic Illness, or Neurodivergent Communities.

Every moment will reflect the joy of the day, celebrate your love and be truly authentic to you.  The ultimate celebration of love to kick off your married life!
