The Secret Wedding Photographer


Self portrait.jpg


I am an Essex based photographer, (Nicola Parry) living near the beautiful Thames Estuary.


To me, the most important things about special occasions such as weddings, are the memories created between the bride and groom, their families and guests. It seems a shame therefore, that on a day which can go by in such a blur, we might spend time trying to create staged images rather than capturing the beautiful moments that naturally occur.


With a surprising number of people feeling shy and awkward in front of the camera, (myself included), the staged aspects of traditional wedding photography often make the wedding party and guests alike, feel uncomfortable from the outset. So, to avoid stiff, awkward photographs, I have adopted a style of photography which is as informal and unobtrusive as possible and puts my clients completely at ease. Blending in with guests and going unnoticed wherever I can, I like to secretly capture the intimate and spontaneous moments which make a wedding day so special. 


Having a relaxed and comfortable relationship and the trust of my clients allows me to do this. It gives me the freedom to focus on the creative aspects of my photography and capture the best possible images of their day ensuring that the precious memories are captured for them and future generations to come. I aim to provide a natural, authentic documentation of my clients day which captures the atmosphere, emotion, joy and laughter without formal straight lines and awkwardness.

Si & Laura

'It was a pleasure having Nicola do the photography for our big day. From day one she was quick with all communication and really listened to what we wanted, offering ideas from past experiences that she thought might work well for us. Nicola adapted well on the day as 50mph winds meant we had to change some original plans and she was not fazed at all through out. We are so happy with the service we received and the photos are just perfect, exactly what we were after, natural and capturing the memories.


Thanks so much for everything before, after and on the day, I won't hesitate to book you for future events .'
