Just think, wedding photographers must see hundreds or thousands of weddings in their career. Here, we talk to Fiona from Fiona Walsh Photography to see what weddings are like from the other side of the camera!

“It’s incredible to be in this career, I see so much personality in each one and they’re always so different to the next. Even after studying the details for the wedding you never quite know what to expect. One bride surprised her groom with a black box that had a red button on it, she told him to push down and when he did it set off secret fireworks! Another couple, in India, arrived at the reception on an elephant!”

She says two of her favourite moments of the day is capturing the first time the father of the bride sees his daughter, and the first time the couple see each other after she walks down the aisle. “When you see the love in the facial expressions between the couple, or between sisters or family members, everything else seems to stand still and their connection is the strongest thing you’ve ever seen”.

Fiona would describe her imagery as “romantic with a stylist twist” and loves working in weddings that aren’t afraid to be a little bit different. Her style is fun and relaxed, encouraging you to be yourself and pretend the camera isn’t there.

“I take my work seriously but I’m not a serious person at all. Your wedding is such an important day that I put much time and effort into all aspects of running the business successfully. A good photographer requires not just technical know-how, but the ability to connect with people, the experience to know how to handle difficult situations, and to have good editing skills to bring more life into your images. There is one last must that Fiona brings her attention to at the start of a wedding - an energy drink! (the camera gear weighs about 3kg!).”

Fiona has been a professional wedding photographer for 8 years. She was a finalist in the Young Business Woman of the Year 2006 with the Network of Women, as well as the Westcountry Wedding Awards 2008. She went on to win the Westcountry Wedding Awards 2010 for the category ‘Best Devon Photographer’, judged by the comments from past clients. She even photographed President Bill Clinton, Sir Richard Branson, and Lord Sugar last year and this year has just finished her role of Director of Photography for a local independent film.

Fiona is soon to be creating resources for those who are really keen to become a wedding photographer, as well as marketing tips for wedding businesses.
