Jersey wedding photographer Kimberley Garrod based in Southampton Hampshire. However it extremely easy to fly over to the Island whenever you need me from Southampton Airport I normally travel over two days before your wedding to ensure safe travel to the Island ahead of time before the wedding this will allow me to scout the venues and come up with some great ideas for you and also to meet you the day before the wedding if you wish to run though any last minute details or possible for me to come to pre-plans the night before the wedding.

Isles of Scillys Wedding Photographer Kimberley Garrod.
Wow wow wow What can I say the most amazing wedding day. Zenna and Dan were truly blessed with the most amazing weather on there wedding day. The day before was thick fog and rain you never know on IOS what the weather will be like. I was out the day before the wedding walking around the island trying to work out how best to photograph a wedding in fog and had come up with the most amazing plan which luckily did not go to plan as woke up in the morning to the most amazing sunshine.
The day was packed with the most exciting plan for the day starting with the girls on Bryher family home then to Hell Bay for ceremony then off to Samson Hill for family photographs then back to Hells Bay for cornish pasties followed by the most exciting exit on Fergie with the most handsome driver Dad. Then tractor ride to quay where met by the RNIL lifeboat for a speedy trip to St Marys. Then to Juilet’s Cafe for food and speeches and then followed by bus drive to family farm to really celebrate the wedding in style. There is nothing really more to say than the pictures speak for themselves.
So much fun photographing this wedding, Congratulations to these two on getting married.
Here is a little peek of the day for you all.

Digital Wedding Packages, have become very popular within the photography as it really allows sharing and instant photography for your wedding. However is this really what you are after? Here are some things to think about below before you make that choice. After all the photographs are one of the only thing left after the day to rekindle your memories.
Here are some ideas to think about before you create a wedding package with your photographer. Well I been thinking about the excitement of the digital era and how easy it is to share our images with one another with use of Facebook and emails etc. There is no need to borrow a negative from someone drive all the way to the local printers to get a copy. Photography now is instant but we need to keep in mind the magical moment of picking up a roll of film from a shop and looking at the prints and admiring what was captured. You would never be sure if anything would even come out! Now with digital you have the reliability to check and be safe in your own mind you have captured the photograph how you wish.
I have come up with the comprise for those technology heads out there in the form of a Digital Wedding Hamper this gives you the best of the old and the new and also a little bit of me and my personality into the mix. I have been doing the Digital Hampers for over a year now but now new and improved with your initials and extra treats.
The Digital Hamper contain a section of prints….. yes prints! to get you started it’s all well and good showing people your pictures on screen TV, laptop or tablet. But the colour profiling may not alway be right on these devices therefore making your wedding photographs not look as amazing as they should. So the prints are a guide for you to allow you to see what they really should look like.
The Hamper also comes with a USB stick with the images taken on from the day and is not locked so you can share with family and friends as you wish.
Also I tend to add few extra treats into the Hamper as well for you. The Hampers are bespoke and tailored to suit you.
Important things to think about where booking a photographer that is only giving you a digital package?
1) How big can you print the photographs?
2) Is the quality high quality or low? (It’s no good having low quality for when you want that wall hanging image or sometimes a photographer may sale you low quality photo file and then you will find an additional fee for high resolution so be aware of the extra charges that may occur)
3) Back -up?
4) Does the photographer help you after the wedding with printing, framing album design etc or are you left to figure this out by yourself?
The price of my digital hampers varies depending on location there are different prices for destination weddings. Price will also vary depending on the length of coverage on the day please get in touch and I can quote especially for your big day.
