'We are so lucky we found you and that we got to share the crazy ride that is a wedding with you.' Joseph + Steve

because you're not everyone else

You’re not doing what everyone else does.

Doing things the right way! Sticking to every wedding tradition under the sun! You’re just not that typical. For you, it’s all about great food, epic music, and making sure everyone has such a blast they’ll be saying ‘that was totally brilliant’ for years to come.

And you want authentic, natural, wedding photography where you recognize you as you, that shows how much fun you all had in one day and how utterly amazing it was to get married.

for you it’s about remembering what your day felt like.

There is only one word that can be used....EPIC!!!

We're over the moon with the pictures. Thank you for being part of our day and capturing us as us.

With over 30 years’ experience as a professional photographer, 13 of them running Yvonne Lishman Photography, and some pretty cool accolades to my name, my fun informal photography is loved by couples who are looking for wedding photography that shows them as them and their day as it really happened.

Most of the time I’ll photograph your day as it unfolds, the real day, un-orchestrated. So if I happen to photograph your shoes you’ll be wearing them or will have kicked them off in a corner somewhere because let’s face it you’ve got better things to do with your feet like dancing or paddling in the sea.

From morning until night I'll photograph all the fun, the hugs, the laughter and mischief to show what your day really felt like. Because that's the stuff that makes your wedding yours and no one else's. Beautiful and honest story telling photos where you recognise yourselves as you so that you can relive how wonderful it felt to get married every time you look back at your wedding photography.

And all you have to do on the day is kick back, chill out and have a blast. Easy peasy!

We'll create some fun and quirky portraits together. I'm ace at sussing out what works for your personality and letting you be you. They won’t take long to do either so your guests are unlikely to notice you’ve gone.

A few days after your wedding I’ll post a little preview of your day on social media for you to share with your favs. All your pictures will be ready for you to download around six weeks after your wedding, all edited for longevity and not in some current trendy style. And because your images should always be printed you’ll also receive a selection of gorgeous matted fine art prints to get that wall collection rolling.

And just in case you think you’re rubbish at pictures

I'll show you how to rock all of the socks.

We can book in a date well before your wedding for you to have an engagement shoot. We'll get together, I'll shout you a cuppa and cake, and I’ll take some super fun pictures of you being you. Come to me and you get a hefty discount on the going rate! In the words of Bruce Willis, kind of, ‘Come to Nottingham, we’ll get together, have a few laughs.’

My couples find these shoots soooooo helpful. Taking the time to get to know you, what you tell me about yourselves and observing how you interact as a couple is how I get fun, natural portraits of you on your wedding day that look like you didn’t know you were being photographed at all, how I get them done quickly, and how any apprehension you have about being photographed disappears. You'll feel like a mate has turned up to photograph your day and you won’t give a second thought to me being there pointing my camera at you.

What's the damage? The $! The Dosh! The Dough!

All this splendid goodness can be yours from just £1800.

I LOVED having Yvonne as my photographer for my wedding.

One of the best decisions I made when planning my big day. She made the whole experience relaxed and allowed lots of opportunities to get to know myself and my husband to allow her to take the best photos on the day. The engagement shoot gave us the change to get used to the camera before the big day but also gave us some beautiful photos to keep as well. The photos from the wedding were FANTASTIC! I could not have asked or imagined for better photos. They are absolutely beautiful and captured our day perfectly!!! I CANNOT recommend Yvonne more highly.
