"WE LOVE THEM!!! Thank you so much! They are amazing and beautifully capture the day."
- Anna & Sean
"We have had so many comments about how you were the perfect wedding photographer, present when needed but unobtrusive and friendly. We couldn’t be more pleased with how things went on the day and the results we have now."
- Kate & Larry
Hi, I'm Madeleine- though you can call me Maddy, everyone does. Home for me is the beautiful Peak District, Derbyshire.
My interest in photography began at age 17. I turned my parents' kitchen into a darkroom for a chemistry project on film and developing. Dad's old gear in hand, I obsessively made print after print. The following year I got my first digital camera and couldn't put it down.
One decade later, I have a Masters in chemistry and a career in photography. I have worked professionally for four years. I still shoot film and sometimes develop my own.
One day I hope to have a darkroom in my basement, a garden hedgehog and some kids. I'm passionate about equality, sustainability & the climate.
If you're a wild-at-heart couple full of love and adventure, planning your wedding your own unique way, I think we will get along instantly. My expertise is capturing the intimacy, emotion, & magic of your wedding day as it naturally unfolds, plus beautiful, creative couple portraits.
My third wedding season has been rudely interrupted by a global pandemic, but if you're planning a wedding in 2021 or beyond, please get in touch.
