Isles of Scilly Wedding Photographer. Well with the Islands being so small there are not hundreds of choices for you. However there are a mixture of photographers on the Islands with a mixture of ammeters and professionals however there is not much choice for couples. I am wanting to make the experience easier for couples and offer the high quality photography which is provided on the mainland and bring this to Scillys so I have decided to add the Isles of Scillys as a location I can cover. So a separate website is currently under design and will be here to share shortly with you.
So I am based in Southampton however have family on the Islands. I have been going to the Isles of Scillys now for the last 4 years for a annual break and each time I go I always think to myself I would love to photograph a wedding there. So now hopefully my dream will come true. Please feel to contact me direct where I will be happy to quote and provide you any information you desire.

Royal Marines Museum Wedding Photographer Kimberley Garrod. I have done many forces weddings and understand the extra stresses and pressures involved. Also from my own experiences understand the fine balance when planning a forces wedding. What a fabulous wedding of Hollie and Sean one of my favourite weddings this year. The wedding started off with a church wedding following with reception venue for late afternoon and evening time.
Hollie had some amazing blue shoes which really added that extra sparkle to her amazing bridal outfit not to mention the fab sunflowers which were amazing. I met Hollie first the day after I got engaged myself last year and she must of thought I was mad meeting up with me as I was so excited to talk to her about all her wedding plans. We arranged a pre-shoot before the wedding where finally got to meet the groom to be and guided them both though a little shoot before the wedding day and explained to them what to expect and described to them how I worked etc which I think put them at ease.
On the wedding day it was very relaxed and fun and we escaped to Southsea beach for couple pictures which were really fab again be blessed with the most amazing sunshine and cloud combination a photographers friend. Do not want to give to much away below are a few images from their big day.
Portchester Castle Church Wedding Photographer Kimberley Garrod. Well what can I say about these two Kimberley and Jon what a fab couple and of course the bride has the best name ever. I meet these two at a family home for the first time I took round a selection of albums so they could see a selection of my work. Upon our meeting they booked me as their wedding photographer. After that meeting I did a pre-wedding shoot with them some months later and then three days before the wedding went to meet them both at the venue to talk though last details and bits before the big day. I really got to know these two and I feel this reflects in their wedding photographs.
Not only was the weather unpredictable in the morning but it turned out to be a lovely sunny day which Kimberley was very happy about. Getting ready in the morning was great fun as they had a very close friend who was hair dresser who lived across the road she had a amazing studio which was in her garden which was like a little secret den. The couple got married at St Marys Church Porchester and then we did couple pictures around the grounds of Porchester Castle. After this they then went on to their reception which was a garden party style theme in a marquee which was set up so lovely and really allowed the couple to celebrate their wedding in style. I had such a lovely day and it ended with the step father grabbing the microphone off the singer and getting everyone to give me a big round of applause I think I blushed a little but the gesture was lovely. So nice to be appreciated for the hard work. I can not wait to print a wedding album for this couple.
Had some lovely feedback on my Facebook after the big day;
“Kimberley was utterly amazing. We definitely picked the right photographer. She was bubbly, organised other people well and supported me perfectly. Other people from the wedding party commented on how great Kimberley was. Kimberley Bride”
