Fine Art Wedding Galleries


Kate Hopewell-Smith Wedding Photography


I am often asked how I would describe my work and I like to use the term ‘fine art wedding photographer’ although I also love a natural, documentary approach to wedding photography.  I want to tell the story of the day as well as provide some beautiful standout images that you will love –  my role is to document the emotion, the drama, the beauty and the love in a natural yet stylish way.  These galleries show a cross-section of the kind of weddings that I am lucky enough to photograph – many are at the bride’s home but I am a preferred supplier at stunning venues such as Blenheim Palace, the Bodleian Library, Ashridge House and Kensington Palace.   I have shot many of the top UK Wedding venues including Aynhoe Park, Hedsor House, Kew Gardens, Barnsley House, Leeds Castle and Stowe House and many of the luxury London hotels.  Not all weddings are full day coverage and I am happy to shoot a shorter day outside peak season – particularly at venues like the Roman Baths where ceremonies begin much later in the day.  

If you are planning a destination wedding or are also considering a wedding film please visit our Photography, Film and Air byLUMIERE website.

Each wedding is a love story that deserves to be shared.  In this digital age I still believe in the power and beauty of print and the role of albums as a physical legacy to pass down the generations.  On the day I shoot with an album in mind – creating and crafting beautiful images to preserve the precious memories and the best moments of your wedding story.
