Weddings now have become even more a personal reflection of who the couple are and less about what tradition has dictated. To this end, I couldn’t be happier! This has meant that weddings have become far less predictable. Not every wedding features a cake, not every wedding has a first dance, not every wedding has the same routine. I’ve seen duck races, boat rides, beerfests, tipis & ceremonies under starlight.
As wedding photographers we are very much thinking along these lines. How can we deliver something outside of the box and very much tailored to who YOU are. Every wedding has it’s own zeitgeist and so too, every wedding we deliver will have a remarkably unique look and feel against the rest. Your personality will create not only the wedding you produce, but an essence that I try to capture through composition, the selection of photographs and the edit process. Each picture is individually dealt with and considered. It’s time consuming and worth it.
I’m Sandra, the lead photographer for Divine Day Photography. We are a UK based team of 3, including 2 photographers and some seriously experienced hands in cinematography. With our commercial work, we’ve shot for some big names in our careers, including Calvin Klein, FENDI, BBC, GOOGLE, PORSCHE and the FT. But we have a weakness for romance and the mother-load of our work has become weddings over the last 1o years. It’s a job for the bravest of quick thinkers and demands continuous optimism and the ability to establish trust in people rapidly. I’m constantly evolving, finding new ways to capture a thousand words in one photograph and with technology changing, so is my equipment and its capabilities…low light here I come!

“They are absolutely amazing – you truly captured the energy and romance of wedding. We are forever grateful.”

“Our friends had used Sandra at their wedding and we knew how fabulous she was – she always made us feel at ease and was part of the party – never getting in the way – and with two very ‘camera shy’ people she got some good shots! She went above and beyond for us and it was her natural and relaxed style that we loved, and she really was one of the gang on the day. Sandra is a delight to work with, an incredible fun and positive energy and her work reflect this.”

“Wow. Where do I even begin? Sandra, you were the most professional, amazing, talented, incredible part of our wedding and you are the epitome of an artist. Truly genius! Your ability to capture all of the different personalities and dynamics of our day is mind-blowing and we are SO in love with our pictures. You fit in with our wedding group and felt like a friend to us! You worked so hard to capture every moment, and it was evident by you getting down on the ground to get that special shot (which you did, above and beyond!) Thank you for being so reliable and showing us how much fun a wedding should be! Dani and I think the world of you and will be using you for every single special event in our lives. Not only that but all of my bridesmaids were in love with you and can’t wait to hire you for THEIR weddings! I think that says a lot.
(Sidenote: My mom was sick on the day of the wedding and only attended half of the ceremony and bits of the reception. Sandra was so fantastic and helpful at rounding people up to take photos when my mom made her sporadic appearances and that meant so much to me. In addition, I received a text from Sandra the very next morning asking how my mom was doing. She was so considerate and truly the best choice I made regarding the wedding, outside of the husband part ;)!
Thank you, thank you, and thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me the most beautiful memories. We love you!!”

“Sandra – Before we even got engaged we knew we would ask you to be our wedding photographer as you had shot our friends wedding and we just LOVE your style. Completely unobtrusive, yet blended in so well and made us feel completely at ease.
You are full of energy, enthusiastic and so fun to be around. Thank you sooooo much Sandra you have captured our special day perfectly and tell our story so well. The photos are absolutely amazing and we couldn’t be happier! You have delivered exactly what we wanted and you were also an absolute pleasure to have around on the day. You are awesome!!”
