LORNA

Winchester wedding photographer covering weddings worldwide as well as closer to home in Hampshire, The New Forest, Dorset, Wiltshire, Berkshire, Surrey, Oxfordshire and The Cotswolds.

Hello! I’m Lorna, a Winchester wedding photographer, and I’m passionate about capturing beautiful, natural wedding photography across Hampshire, the South East and wherever the job might take me!

I’m a friendly and warm person and I love nothing more than working with easygoing, loved-up couples to capture the joy, love and emotion-filled moments from your best day ever, and preserving them in photos for you to cherish for a lifetime.

If you hate posing and worry about being in front of the camera all day then don’t worry. You’re in safe hands here. With my relaxed approach, I’ll capture your special day as it naturally unfolds, while offering gentle direction to achieve beautiful images of you both looking and feeling genuinely relaxed and happy.

From support and help with planning to a wonderful photography experience on the wedding day, to carefully hand-picking, fine-tuning and editing your images afterwards, it’s all part of the service no matter which package you choose.

And when not photographing weddings?

You’ll usually find me cosied up in the house in Winchester that I’m renovating with my husband, Tim.

We are both massive foodies, love cooking up a storm in the kitchen (the more spice the better!), listening to live music, and exploring new places. Every now and again we also enjoy the slower pace of life while camping and travelling around in our tin-topped copper-coloured VW T25 camper van, called Heinz.

Ten fun facts about me

  1. I was born in Canada but spent most of my childhood in a wee village not far from Edinburgh, hence my subtle Scottish accent.
  2. I lived in Berlin for 2 years and Vienna for 1. Although not fluent in German, I did come away with an excellent  knowledge of Christmas markets in these 2 cities!
  3. I love a good rom-com or period drama much to the despair of my husband! (I can’t wait for the next series of Bridgerton!)
  4. I’m a cat person and will always stop and say hello to a cat in the street.
  5. I’m not a particularly girlie-girl and don’t usually wear any makeup. (Shock horror!)
  6. My favourite walk is a long one. My ideal Sunday would involve going for a long walk in the country followed by lunch at a cosy pub, ideally sat next to a roaring open fire.
  7. I studied music at Uni. I’m a trained singer and now sing with a fabulous amateur choir in Oxford.
  8. We got married on a beach in Scotland and we even got sunburnt! We could not believe our luck with the weather!
  9. I’m not a huge fan of having my photo taken but I’ve learnt that with the right photographer, it can make all the difference.
  10. I’m a coffee snob. No instant coffee for me!
