Sussex Wedding Photographer Capturing Natural, Candid, Romantic & Fun Moments On Your Day.

Hi I’m Joanna,

A Sussex wedding photographer, living by the sea in Felpham, Bognor Regis and grew up in Midhurst.

I’m a down to earth girl with a real passion for capturing incredible weddings in a natural, laid-back and candid style – you can see some of my previous weddings on my Instagram.

I love to create romantic and fun couple portraits that show your true essence; I want to capture you both being yourselves, having fun and celebrating in the best way you know how.

Since 21st May 2013 I’ve been a full time wedding photographer, working hard to create honest & natural photographs for all of my amazing couples. I have photographed over 331+ weddings in over 10 years of photographing weddings! And I can’t wait to hear from you!


“Beautiful pictures that truly captured the emotions, feelings and happiness of the day. Stunning photos that I will have forever to look back at for the rest of our lives.
I can not thank you enough, the photos are amazing and that is the truth!
Lots of love xxxx”
Nicola and Samuel - Southdowns Manor

Real Weddings

Please have a look through some recent weddings I’ve shot in the ‘Real Weddings’ section on my website. You’ll hopefully find some inspiration for your own wedding! These wedding blogs will give you a really good idea of my style and use of both natural light and artificial light that I use in my style of photography.

I like to not only document your wedding day, but also capture all the little emotional moments that are so often missed, so you will remember them every time you look at your wedding photographs many years later. The ones that show what you were really feeling, the fleeting glances and the touches that mean so much on the day but are forgotten moments later.

I see your wedding day as a chance to tell your story in a natural, fun, creative and romantic way. I love to capture some beautiful shots of the two of you together as part of my style. Also I always do some of the traditional group shots as I find my couples appreciate this as family members really want them as a wedding is the only time the whole family really gets together.



If you are looking for a professional, talented, down to earth, 5-star photographer then look no further than Joanna. 🤍
We booked Joanna because we liked the look of her work and had met her a couple of times at wedding fayres, she was super easy to talk to and we immediately knew she would be fantastic at our wedding. It was so important for our photographer to be someone we felt comfortable with and who we could trust. Joanna ticked all the boxes.
We had an engagement session, which we were really pleased we did, as it gave us time to talk to Joanna and get used to having a picture taken in front of someone. We treasure these photos; they really captured us and the setting in Midhurst was just perfect as we love being outside. These pics from the shoot are some of my favourite ever pics!
We were also able to look through examples of wedding albums and samples to help us pick our style, material, and colour. I would definitely recommend doing this!
On the lead up to the wedding day, I had many questions, but we had a phone call with Joanna and we were able to ask them all and go through the plan of the day. Joanna’s communication was perfect, she was always only a message or email away.
On the wedding day itself, it was like having an extra friend there to be honest. She made taking the pictures fun and was able to capture every single moment for us, including all our family, my mum and dad being all emotional seeing me in my dress, the moment I saw David for the first time walking up the Isle, and just tonnes more that I can’t list, or I would be here forever! 😊 Joanna even made sure we got outside at the PERFECT moment to get a romantic, sunset picture. We have way too many favourites to pick, but going through them all was like we were re-living the entire wedding day. ❤️
I can’t explain how we felt seeing all the photos for the first time when that link came through, but we both were emotional…we just can’t thank you enough for all the details and precious moments that you have captured, we can treasure these for years to come. Thank you so very much from the bottom of our hearts Xxxx
Amy & David – 7th April 2023 – Southdowns Manor


Southdowns Manor is just absolutely stunning and I love it. I’m very lucky to have my family home I grew up in just 8 minutes drive from the venue where my parents still live, they live in the center of Midhurst, West Sussex, the heart of The Southdowns National Park.

I offer all couples who get married at this venue and book me to photograph their weddings £250 off for April to September and £350 off for October to March at this absolutely spectacular venue



“I honestly don’t even know the right words to describe everything We feel after receiving the link to view our photographs. You have captured every emotion, every tiny bit of detail which I didn’t think where important at the time but mean a huge amount to me now, you’ve put together a complete story of our day and focused on so many precious memories for us.
We now have the most toughest choices to make whilst we go through them so many times to choose our favourites for our album and prints. Having a second shooter with you as well has created so many choices of angles and managed to get some amazing group and action shots whilst we where with yourselves having couple shots….. everything is perfect, beautiful, stunning and unbelievably precious to us. We now have the most memorable story pictured forever.
I’m so pleased you where able to look after us. We can’t Thankyou and your lovely Mum and Sarah, your second shooter enough, you’re all so amazing ❤️❤️
P.s- FEE, FI, FO, FUM…… Joanna, you even ran up and down the green, playing around with the kids and blowing loads of bubbles to get the perfect photos of my little ones… there was even a bit of flossing! Haha!! It was great fun and my kids hate their photo taken and I now have some beautiful pictures of them…. Thankyou xxxxxx” – Gina and Nathan – Hilton Avisford
