Nova Wedding Photography is me (Katherine) and my husband Steve. We have been fortunate enough to photograph beautiful weddings across Devon, Somerset and Cornwall for the past 12 years, blimey! We want our images to tell the genuine story of your wedding day as it really happens. And we LOVE not being noticed. Its not about us after all, so we will do our very very best to blend in and be discreet. We love the subtle moments, it might be a knowing look, a meaningful touch, sunlight filtering through a window, reflections, 'seeing' these moments and capturing them beautifully is what really, REALLY floats our (creative) boats.*
Our natural, documentary style approach means we are best suited to couples who are planning to have a relaxed and informal wedding where the emphasis is on sharing their wedding with close friends and family, not worrying too much about tradition and box ticking, but preferring to put their own stamp on the day. Thats not to say we won't offer direction and help when needed and we often get involved in helping with buttonholes, fixing veils in place, rounding up guests, orchestrating the greatest confetti shot on earth etc... And we're always happy to offer guidance on the day and in the lead up. We've photographed over 300 weddings now (yikes!) so have lots of wedding insights we're happy to share with you!
We have many full wedding galleries we can show you and its really important for you to see some examples before making a decision on your photography. We want you to choose us firstly because you LOVE OUR WORK, and then that you get a good gut feeling having met us that we will be cool, lovely and normal humans who will fit in brilliantly on your wedding day. Over the years we've received some amazing letters from our couples, here's a few of them on our reviews page. Shooting weddings has been our full time business for 12 years and we still have to pinch ourselves! We consider ourselves very lucky to call this our 'job'.
*We really love boats, boats at weddings are THE BEST FUN, oh and flower crowns. More flower crowns please.
We live in a very pretty and sometimes very weird village of Whimple, about 20 minutes from Exeter and 20 minutes from the beach with our two young boys, Charley and Drew and our lovely old cat, Boo. When we're not shooting weddings we're to be found in constant battle with an over-grown garden and on-going house renovations. Totally developed green fingers during lockdown!
In no particular order, we love:
Big walks on Dartmoor or by the coast with friends, lively evenings in or out, the font Helvetica (we met at a design agency) indie music, Starwars, Thai food, Schitts Creek, art galleries, brilliant coffee, the sea. Katherine really loves collecting West German pottery, lino-cutting, illustration, still trying to skate-board, surf & snow-board. Steve really loves cooking, Brew Dog, electronica, Starwars and DIY.
