emotive, elegant fine art wedding photography

I’m Belinda McCarthy, a UK & destination wedding photographer based in Somerset. I specialise in gorgeous, dramatic fine art wedding coverage, coupled with a cinematic documentary approach. If you love wonderful images and are passionate about your wedding being documented in the most beautiful way, you’ve come to the right place.

fine art portraiture & documentary coverage

show-stopping images, whilst capturing all the emotion.

As a full-time documentary and fine art wedding photographer, I shoot beautiful weddings all across the UK, as well as destination weddings in Europe.

I’ve photographed many gorgeous weddings, from grand country house celebrations to informal country weddings in fields. Every wedding day is beautiful, every love story is wonderful, & it’s my job as wedding photographer to document your amazing day with truth and beauty.

I believe in documentary wedding images which have a contemporary yet timeless appeal; & couples’ fine art wedding photography which is elegant, dramatic & beautifully lit.

By combining beautiful documentary wedding photography with fine art work, we’ll create an amazing record of the most important day of your lives. And, as I use the highest quality photographic and lighting equipment, you’ll have stunning images to treasure, no matter what the weather.

Well I have just woken up and oh my god…..oh my god…..oh my god……I have just relived the most special and amazing day of mine and Daniel’s lives and I may be welling up as I write this! You have managed to capture the joy the last ten years have brought us and the wonder and excitement that the next ten will bring! I am completely overwhelmed and grateful for the memories that you have captured for us and that we can keep for the rest of our lives. It was an honour to have you there with us and thank you for making everything feel so easy and relaxed. Your words on the blog are so kind and mean so much! You truly are a photography genius and we will be forever grateful that you “said yes” to us all that time ago and agreed to help us capture our day! I can’t wait to share these with all our friends and family, all our love Mr & Mrs Knapp xxx
