Hello! I’m Olivia, a glitter-loving, van-owning Cornwall wedding photographer with an adventurous spirit.
If you’re considering booking me as your wedding photographer, it’s vital that we connect on a personal level. After all, I get to be there for it all: the emotion, the partial nudity, the nerves and more. You’ll have good friends who have seen less of you! For that reason, it’s important that you get a feel for who I am as a person as well as my approach to weddings.
Cornwall wedding photographer or Shropshire wedding photographer?
The easy answer is both! I’m a Cornwall wedding photographer with a base in Shropshire as well. My 98 year old Gran still lives in Shropshire, as well as most of my oldest friends, so I use my Shropshire wedding photography as an excuse to check in with everyone and get my fix of the hills.
I’ve been permanently glued to a camera of some form since I was about three (see evidence above). Lots has changed since then (the haircut mainly), and now I get to be glued to my camera and make a living from it as a wedding photographer.
I live in a cabin on the North Coast of Cornwall with my lovely bearded fellow, but we like to go wherever the wind takes us (and wherever the weddings are). In the past two years I’ve shot weddings in Australia, Ireland and Spain, and I’m not ashamed to say that I’ve tagged on an adventure to all of them!
When I’m not shooting weddings (and sometimes when I am), you’ll mostly find me pootling around in my big yellow van, Sunny the Wonderbus. Pretty much my only criteria when buying a van was that it was yellow. I converted her myself, and she’s one of the loves of my life.
Things I’m a sucker for include: colourful doorways, old forgotten signwriting, houseplants, charity shops, sequins, those biscuits that are more chocolate than biscuit, Yogi Tea, papermate non-stop pencils and finally my beloved bullet journal.
Things I’m not such a fan of include: soggy chips, plastic glitter, honeycomb (Crunchies, eugh), caffeine (or rather, it doesn’t like me) and books with crap endings.
Aside from my wedding photography business, I also run a very sparkly side-hustle over at Wild Glitter, where I sell all kinds of biodegradable plant-based glitter. We have an online shop, a portable glitter bar and a festival stall too. Need a glitter bar for your wedding? Drop me an email!
When it comes to wedding photography, I genuinely love my job. Being a wedding photographer ticks all my boxes, and appeals to my love of connection and family. If you’re interested in why I love it so much, you can read all about it here.
