Emma likes to think of herself as an alternative wedding photographer and specialises in shooting couples who want to do things a bit differently.
Emma shares how she got into the Photography Business, and also shares some of her incredibkle work with the Wedding of Kate and Morven.
Emma says "Pete, my boyfriend gave me my first DSLR on Christmas Day 2008.
On Boxing Day, he proposed.
I began to research things for our wedding and in the UK just couldn't find the kind of wedding photography that I had in my head.. but, what I did find was a world of American weddings and photographers that just completely sucked me in."
"They were natural and fun and relaxed and completely exciting and full of emotion... wow... I wanted to take photos like that. So I became a complete photography nerd.. reading blogs, watching tutorials... just soaking up as much as I could.... two friend's weddings later and my very own little photography business began... me taking the pictures that I had in my head :)"
3 years later, Boyfriend is now husband and Emma runs an extraordinarly successful Business and today shares a lovely June Wedding that she shot.
"Kate and Morv are one of my couples who I'd not met before their day...
Many an email back and forth meant that I knew they were both ace, but it's always a little bit nerve wracking and exciting turning up in the morning."
"We arrived at the beautiful Buxted Park Hotel in East Sussex with the weather a little bit indecisive whether it wanted to rain or stay dry.
There was a bustle to the hotel with guests checking in and staff getting the ceremony room ready... and as I walked up to the room I was greeted by the adorable Kate... (seriously.. how beautiful is she!) and her equally gorgeous Mum and two sisters.
Kate showed me her beautiful Rachel Simpson shoes, her stunning Jenny Packham dress and headpiece and this little photographer was in elegant bride heaven!"
"Downstairs Morvan, his Best man and Usher were on duty meeting guests and as we moved closer towards the ceremony time everyone took their seats awaiting the arrival of Kate and her bridesmaids..."
"The ceremony was brilliant.
A wonderfully relaxed, warm and with so much love... you could honestly feel the smiles radiating from everyone.. and Morv's vows were possibly the best vows I've ever heard.. (a small poem that rhymed and mentioned Kate's cooking skills).
They were announced Husband and wife and as they descended down the aisle, members of their family danced behind them."
"The afternoon was filled with drinks, canapes, some very funny formals and a lovely couple shoot around the grounds of the hotel and then everyone sat down ready for speeches and the wedding breakfast."
"Now I'm rushing through this a little bit as I'm heading towards the evening where I properly cried.. like, overwhelming crying.
You see Kate's family are Jewish and although the wedding wasn't a traditional Jewish wedding there was definitely one tradition that happened and I LOVED it."
"The evening reception started, the DJ began to play some tunes and as we were doing the photo booth Kate came in and said "Emma, we're gonna do the chair thing'.. 'Great' I said and headed to the dancefloor..."
"All of a sudden the Jewish folk song came, on and everyone ran onto the dancefloor and started doing the Hora.. dancing in circles at such a pace and I squeezed into the middle and began snapping away.
Then two chairs were placed on to the dancefloor and Kate and Morv were sat on them and lifted to the roof and as they were holding hands they were danced around the floor by their guests."
"The atmosphere was so electric with the music and everyone's energy I was literally crying as I was shooting.. it was such a wonderful experience full of love, freedom and happiness.... I will never forget it."
"Thank you Kate and Morv for letting us share your day... we loved you both and your whole family (and a huge soft spot for your lovely Grandad). It was such an absolute pleasure to see two families having so much fun and really showing the love.. I think that's what all weddings should be about."
Love the delicacy of the initial photographs through to bolder images and then the vibrancy and colours with a cultural twist with the evening shots.
Am delighted and grateful to Emma for sharing her wonderful work.
