We LOVE our job. We tell people we have the best job in the world. For us being given the privilege and honour of shooting your wedding is the ultimate dream. Being invited to capture the most anticipated day in a couples life is so exhilarating.
We know how important it is to get it right. Even now we look back on my own wedding pictures which captured the essence and mood of the whole event to perfection and that is what we offer my clients.
We offer an initial face to face consultation to discuss what type of styles you like. No wedding is the same and no couple are the same so we will work to tailor the package and approach to meet YOUR needs.
We believe in shooting candid and relaxed documentary style photography at weddings which captures the fun, emotion and sheer joy of a wedding in an unobtrusive way, but love to throw in some contemporary, fashion style shots for those couples willing to spare us a bit of extra time. We will accommodate your preferences and of course make time for those traditional wedding posed shots as well but we want to capture the essence of the day so want to dedicate as much time as I can to this. The day is yours, just let me know and we will tailor it.
We love being creative so will aim to find some great locations within your venue to capture some cool photos of you being romantic, silly or just having fun.
If the packages we offer aren’t what you are after please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss a bespoke package.
Who are we
We are a husband and wife team who have been through the emotional roller coaster of planning a wedding and the emotion of the day itself so we get it! Married for 8 years with a deaf old dog Dilly, our flock of chickens and most recently our beautiful daughter Emily we are able to offer support, understanding and a helping hand where needed on the day to keep things running smoothly.
We know most people hate having their pictures taken (Alex does, Viv’s a bit more of a poser having done a drama degree many moons ago) so we make it as fun as possible. We are here to create stunning images and capture the day in a way that friends and family won’t and that will be there to tell the amazing story of your day forever.
Both middle children, but having totally different character traits, Viv is the crazily organised one who will most likely be replying to your enquiries and dealing with all the admin as well as lead shooter on the day. If you hadn’t guessed it Viv is the control freak in the relationship. She loves good food (especially Italian food), was probably a mouse in a previous life given her crazy addiction to cheese, loves a nice glass of red wine and snuggling up on the sofa with a good book on a dreary day. Viv likes to be on the going and doing things……pretty much non stop. Viv was a keen runner pre little person arriving in our lives so now fits it in as and when she can. Super creative and receptive to our clients needs Viv ensures every client gets just what they want from their wedding photography.
Alex is the more laid back of the two and the joker. He’s always at the ready to settle the nerves of any groom with one of his jokes (ask him the bear joke if you dare!) and will put anyone at ease. Alex is second shooter and focuses on the candid shots throughout the day capturing those amazing moments from a distance so you get a true story of the day. Alex loves good food, very good wine (his parents met whilst working in a wine merchants many decades ago so he’s been raised on the good stuff!), Terry Pratchett books, QI, Mock the week (and the likes of). Alex likes building things and working with his hands (which is handy since we bought our house a few years ago…it’s a project outside!) as well as dabbling in making his home brew gins from our very own fruits.
Together we love travelling when we get a rare opportunity to do that, and travel to Australia as often as we can to visit our much missed family.
The most important thing is for us to get to know you and all about your big day so please do get in touch now.
What a fabulous photographer and all round woman to capture your brand in images! Viv is fantastic. I'm delighted with my set of pics but what was so amazing was the experience she created - I felt relaxed and comfortable, we laughed, we had so much fun - it was a pure experience day, not just a photoshoot. Viv has a brilliant ability to capture your personality and what you want to stand for and be seen as, effortlessly! Highly recommended. Especially on the brand bestie days!!! More...
Viv is a bundle of energy that will keep you going long after your coffee has worn off! I was part of a Business Besties Brand Shoot in Manchester and I have just received my images - wow wow wow! I cannot thank you enough Viv, they perfectly match my brand and how I want to portray myself and I can't wait to start using them. You completely put me at ease throughout the day and I am so glad to have met you. can't wait for the next shoot now! More...
I met Viv at my baby sensory class and she was lovely and friendly. I am really pleased with the photographs of my little boy.
Excellent service, we are very pleased with our photos and we would highly recommend for anyone who requires professional photography.
Forever Green was such a fab experience, Viv makes you feel very relaxed and got some amazing pictures of both myself and my son. Would definitely recommend her for working with both adults and children! More...
I can't praise Viv, with any higher recommendation. Viv was warm, friendly and professional. Her work and the pictures she captures for you are, a reflection of herself. I couldn't be happier with our photographs and the whole experience. Thankyou for a wonderful day, which Viv made as comfortable as could be, More...
My girls had a great time at their Christmas photo shoot and the final edits look amazing! Thank you very much Viv xxx
Vivienne is an amazing photographer and I absolutely adore every single image she has done for me! My branding shoot for my business was on point and perfectly captures me and my business. I then went back for a Christmas mini shoot with a crying 2 year old, Viv quickly won him round and as a result we have fantastic, high quality Christmas photos More...

11 days post section and I felt so at home in the studio; lots of love and care was given by Viv to ensure my comfort as well as my baby boy's.
Highly recommended, not only for the end result but the whole experience. Thank you Viv � More...
We have absolutely loved having our photos done with Viv. I had my maternity shoot with her where she made me feel totally comfortable, when our little girl was born we went back for our newborn shoot where again she made us feel completely at home. She is a complete professional even when Amelie popped all over her � we have enjoyed working with Viv so much that we have now booked her for our wedding this year. Her photos are beautiful and she is very easy to work with. Thank you for capturing such beautiful memories for our little family � More...
Thank you Viv for a really wonderful experience. I modelled for Viv when I was almost full term with my second son. She has a very natural way and really put me at ease. I really enjoyed my time with Viv and the photographs are ones that I will cherish! More...
our family has had a great experience with Viv at Forever green Photography. We booked in for a bump, newborn and 1st birthday package.
Viv has always made us feel totally comfortable and we fully trust her with our little girl, she is a complete professional at all times and has taken some beautiful pictures that we will treasure forever. We have enjoyed working with Viv so much that we have booked her to photograph our wedding this year.
If you want beautiful memories captured and an easy, professional and laid back experience then go with Forever Green photography. More...

Spent a lovely afternoon with Viv for my maternity shoot. The pictures were fabulous an she was so fun to work with. Will definately be going back for more photos soon!!
My husband and I were looking around for a photographer for our wedding day when a friend recommended Forever Green. We had an intimate wedding with close family and friends and were therefore really keen on having a photographer that almost blended into the background. Our wedding day was everything we could have dreamt of and more, and thanks to FG photography we were able to capture our precious memories. I'm usually pretty slack at leaving feedback or reviews for companies but Viv & Alex were such a fabulous team who took our wishes into account first and foremost and gave us amazing results, that I just couldn't go without reviewing. We'll definitely recommend them to friends and hire them again for future events/needs. A personal, relaxing, professional touch to our special day, thanks again guys! More...
