A Thousand Words Photography
Each wedding is unique and it is vital that your style comes through in the images we create. My goal is to capture all the special moments of your day in a discreet and informal way, making sure your memories are full of fun. The beautiful photography should be a reflection of who you are as a couple and it should encapsulate the atmosphere of the day.“Claire Hawkins is a young & enthusiastic photographer whose flair for innovative ideas resulted in an album of high quality photos of my special day. A truly superb souvenir”

A Thousand Words Photography offers a free engagement shoot for all wedding couples, complete with a framed print! During this session which can be somewhere you love, a garden, country park or round the city centre, you can see my style and we can get to know each other before the big day.‘We are over the moon with our photos. Claire is an amazing photographer and has a real knack for blending into the background and putting people at ease, while capturing the most beautiful shots. We’ve been at weddings before where the photos seem to take forever and the bride and groom disappear for ages, but we were extremely impressed with how quick and easy and fun Claire made it all seem. Our photos are so beautiful and perfectly capture the day. The only difficulty now is trying to decide which ones to put in the album as we love them all. We can’t recommend Claire highly enough! Thank you’
