The Smile Collector The Smile Collector

The vast majority of couples that come to me to talk about their wedding have one common thing on their wish list – photos taken as the day goes along, unposed, just capturing the laughter and joy of the day “as it happens”. For some years I have called myself The Smile Collector. It’s what […]

The Cornwell Photography Approach I love weddings; and I love family photo sessions too. For me, the joy is in creating images and knowing that you, and indeed future generations, will look back lovingly at them. I call myself The Smile Collector: that’s what I do. Photos help us to remember: relatives last seen in […]

There is a quote, usually attributed to Chief Seattle which reads, “Take only memories, leave only footprints.” For many years I had only heard it as, “take only photographs, leave only footprints.” It is a maxim to which I aspire. Every now and again I ask my suppliers what they are doing to be more […]

You want your wedding day photographs recorded beautifully, simply, and without fuss

I know that your wedding memories are important to you and that you want me to record the excitement of your wedding day in an informal way, creating images that you can cherish forever more. You want me to take photos of things as they happen and you don’t really like having your photo taken. Oh and you are not keen on having to pose either. That’s ok: I feel like that too.

At Cornwell Photography I want to give you more than a photograph: to capture the magic of your fairy tale in a way that you will cherish. I aim to create a wonderful record of the day you gave your heart to the one you love.

I’m something of a small wedding specialist. Couples that book me often tell me that they are having “just a small wedding”. Quite often they have booked a “wedding in a box” type package from a venue and just need to add a photographer. If you are having a really small wedding (fewer than 20 people) or you just want photos at the Register Office have a look at my Bijoux Weddings page. For bigger weddings check out the Smile Collector page. Whatever size of wedding you are having though from just 2 guests to 200 guests or more, I can help you.
