We loved having Natasha photograph our wedding, she captured everything we could have ever wanted and just blended in with everyone all day. Natasha was happy to meet before over a glass of Gin and put us both at ease straightaway. Natasha came highly recommended from my Sisters wedding and she definitely didn’t disappoint. A photographer is one of the most important parts of your wedding and we have no regrets over our choice! We cant wait to see the rest of our photos!! More...

Natasha is the best wedding photographer I could have asked for and was amazing from start to finish. The first time I spoke to her on the phone I knew she was the photographer for me, she was so warm and friendly and answered all of my questions. We met up a few times before the wedding to discuss everything about the wedding and more, I knew she would become more than just a photographer and we would be friends long after my wedding as she was just such a lovely person and was completely on my wave length. Before the wedding day we talked through my requirements for my photos and she was brilliant at balancing what I wanted with the running order of the day and we worked together to get what I wanted from the photos. On the wedding day she was a dream, she helped wherever she could, rallied everyone together for the number of group photos I had, ticked off my long list of different photos I wanted, checked my lipstick and held my hand. When the preview photos came through they were beautiful, it made me so happy and so excited for the full gallery. The main photos were unreal, she captured everything perfectly and you could feel the day and the memories in every photo. I couldn’t have wished for a better photographer and I am so grateful to have found her and since the wedding as expected we remain great friends More...

I would highly recommend Natasha. She photographed our wedding day asking what specific pictures we wanted beforehand and she managed to get all these and also capturing amazing natural pictures of everyone (my favourite)! She captured our day perfectly for us to remember forever! She is really easy to work with and puts your mind at ease on the day! Thank you so much Natasha we can’t thank you enough xx More...

We can’t recommend Natasha enough, she captured our day to absolute perfection! Aside from being so lovely and beyond talented, she made us all feel totally at ease but was also there to direct everyone when necessary. Having the right wedding photographer, in my opinion, is one of the most important elements of your wedding day as you’ll look back on the photos for years to come and we are so lucky to have come across Natasha. They were just perfect. Our photos really will be cherished forever, thank you ♥️ More...

We were lucky enough to actually win Natasha as our wedding photographer...and how lucky we were! As soon as we met Natasha she put us at ease and was so relaxed and lovely throughout the day. She was incredibly professional, hardworking and accommodating. Natasha captured our day perfectly and it was amazing to be see parts of the day we had missed through the photos. Throughout the day Natasha used her initiative taking photos that she knew would be beautiful and effective without any fuss. The photos were stunning, relaxed and full of fun! We cannot wait to share them with our family and friends. Thank you so much Natasha for being a fantastic part of our day and creating memories we can keep for life xxx More...

From the moment we met Natasha we knew we wanted her to be our wedding photographer. She was organised with samples of her work and albums for us to see and few weeks before the wedding she emailed us with all the paperwork to organise the big day. On the actual day we hardly noticed her as she blended in taking natural 'capture the moment' photos of us and our guests. She was accommodating with family asking to take more formal photos than we planned and adapted the plan when the heavens opened and we couldn't get any sunset photos. We absolutely love the edited photos capturing the happiest day of our lives. We can't wait to receive our album, the only difficult part was trying to choose the photos as there were so many beautiful ones x More...

We absolutely love our wedding photos! Natasha is so lovely and so many of our guests commented on how comfortable they were around her. We felt so at ease with her and confident that she would capture those special moments and she absolutely did! We were ecstatic with our photos, so much so that choosing ones to print was a major task � I 100% recommend Natasha at petal and blush artistry. You will not be disappointed � More...

Natasha is amazing. The photos she took at our wedding are absolutely stunning. From the first time we met her two years before our big day to the wedding day itself, Natasha was friendly, professional, helpful, and reliable. She replied to every message and email so quickly, and even secretly helped my now-husband make a surprise photograph frame for me to display on our wedding day. I couldn't recommend Petal and Blush Artistry enough. Thanks again Natasha xxx More...

We had our wedding at The Holford Estate on 24.06.17. Natasha was our photographer for our big day and she was absolutely a dream to work with!

Love love love all the images we have seen so far and can't wait to see more!! More...

We had our wedding on 17/06/17 at Gibbon Bridge. We booked our photography with petal and blush artistry about a year before. The whole way through planning Natasha was there to help support us with any decisions we needed to make. We even got sent a thank you package full of goodies and an information book about what to expect and our timeline for the day. Our wedding day was a dream and Natasha made everything so easy for us. She had so much patience and was so lovely with all our family and friends. The preview pictures we have seen so far look amazing and we can't wait to get the rest. Thanks for everything petal and blush artistry. We can't recommend you enough � xx More...

We cannot put into words how truly amazing Natasha is! We had our wedding on 28th July at Ferrari's and we came across Petal & Blush Artistry by chance and we are so glad we did. From the first contact we had with Natasha we just knew we had made the right decision for our photographer. We didn't want to be restricted by times and set photographs and Natasha filled our brief beautifully. How we can choose from the wealth of photographs is beyond me. We really do have an album bursting full of wonderful pictures that captured the relaxed nature of our wedding day to perfection. If you choose Natasha you will not be sorry. It was commented on by our guests how hard she worked and how smoothly the photographs ran. Thank you sooooo much Natasha, amazing is not enough xx More...

We can't thank Natasha enough for capturing our wedding day, we absolutely love her work! We had a very intimate wedding in Venice in September with just a few friends and family. Natasha was so professional and easy going, we definitely made the right choice. She caught all of the most beautiful moments of the day. I'm so happy with the photos, and can't wait to sort out a wedding album! I would absolutely recommend Natasha for anyone getting married, she's amazing More...

Natasha was recommended by our wedding planner who thought she would be perfect for us and she really was! From the gorgeous welcome pack we received as a thank you for choosing her to our beautiful photo album at the end the whole process with Natasha is delightful, she pays attention to detail and the results are simply stunning. I would recommend her work and her professional friendly manner to anyone considering a wedding photographer. Thanks for everything Natasha we are so happy you came to Italy and captured our wedding so beautifully.

Worked with Natasha a few times now (she will probably say too many). She is the ultimate professional! Taking the obvious quality of the photos she captures, she is a lovely person to have at your Wedding. So important to feel comfortable infront of a phorographer to capture natural shots, and your personality as a couple and Natasha is brilliant at this! Thank you! Mike (DFC Lancashire Host) More...

Q&A

I love meeting people and hearing their stories. Whilst your wedding day itself is incredibly exciting and wonderful, for me it isn't just about that one day, it's about your whole journey and story. I fall in love with my couples stories. I love love. There is nothing more beautiful in this world, for me, than seeing two people so in love, so peaceful and happy. It's a wonderful thing!

That's why I wholeheartedly love being a wedding photographer. I get to witness those emotions every time I go to 'work.' Photographing weddings fills my heart with joy and happiness. I am truly blessed.

You want a unique & personalised experience... Booking your wedding photographer isn't just about having someone show up on your day and take photos. It's about an experience. I want to help you design your wedding the way you are. Your wedding is just for you and should look and feel like that too.

You love my photography... This is a given. It is so important to me that you book me because you love my style of work. Your wedding is a non repeatable day, so it is important that you choose a photographer who is 100% right for you. If you feel that is me, then wonderful, I would absolutely love to hear from you!

You want a photographer that really cares about you & your wedding... As a wedding photographer who is obsessed with weddings, I get so excited and am genuinely interested to hear all about your wedding plans! There is nothing I love more than meeting with my couples for a coffee and hearing all about their ideas for their day. It is also important to me that I am not going in to your wedding day blind, I make sure I know all about your plans and ideas so I am fully prepared for your day.

You want to be a part of a supportive online community of like minded Brides & wedding professionals... Once you have booked with me you will be invited to join my private Facebook group. The group is a place where you have the opportunity to liaise with wedding industry experts on a more personal level, discuss your exciting wedding plans with like minded, creative Brides, and receive endless amounts of beautiful wedding inspiration.

You want your wedding photographs to be beautifully edited... I pride myself in hand editing every single photograph with precision and beauty. This is the reason I do not outsource my editing. I am very much a perfectionist and I bring this in to editing your wedding photos. I will never give you unedited or half finished photos. Every image is edited by myself, to give you a consistent, beautiful set of images.

You want a bespoke wedding album... I design every single wedding album myself from start to finish. The way I design your album is to tell the story of your day from the morning through to the evening. I feel incredibly passionate about investing in a fine art wedding album, you can read why here.

You want a photographer that offers security & peace of mind... I never photograph a wedding without two camera bodies, that way if my primary camera was to fail I always have a backup camera. On the day I carry with me several spare memory cards and batteries, so you never need to worry about me running out of those on the day. I make several backups of your wedding photos and keep the RAW files for up to a year after your wedding. I also provide you with an online gallery with 10 years hosting, so if you ever lost your USB you will always have access to high res copies of your wedding photos, which can be downloaded straight to your computer or phone. I am also fully insured for both professional indemnity and public liability.

You want to feel special... After all, this is one of the biggest, most amazing days of your life! And I get that. I want all my couples to feel special. I am so very grateful to each and every one of my couples, because I understand there are hundreds of talented, fabulous photographers out there, so when you choose me I am over the moon. So, I love nothing more than to send you little surprises along the way. I'm not going to give too much away here, as it's a surprise!!
