For folk who appreciate timeless documentary photography


Bath, Bristol & Somerset wedding photography, that’s emotive and humorous with a sprinkle of chic!

If you love wedding photography that tells a story, that is colourful, emotive, humorous, and with a touch of elegance, then I’m your lady. England is a small country and I’ve got long legs and a nifty little car, so I can travel pretty much anywhere within the UK for your wedding. I also have a valid passport, meaning I can leave the country if you’re opting for something a bit more exotic. What’s important to me is capturing your wedding day through my eyes and producing a set of images for you that will make you laugh, cry and relive your day for generations to come.

A photo of Kerry the Tall Long Legged Bird



Hello, I’m Kerry, the Tall Long Legged Bird of the story, I live in a village between Bath & Bristol but travel all over the south of England and beyond to be a part of truly amazing weddings. My wedding images focus on recording what happens as it happens rather than staging shots that weren’t really part of your day. I don’t do tickbox photography and every set of wedding images is unique. Wedding photography is more than a love or a passion, it’s a huge part of who I am.

You might like to know that I’m a BA (Hons) Visual Communication graduate, and have a portfolio of images that have been used in major ad campaigns. You might also like to know that I’m inspired by artists such as Sally Mann, Martin Parr and Henri Cartier Bresson but, if you don’t really care about all of that, you do need to know that I’m Kerry and I’d love to tell the story of your wedding day.

Amy Williams Wedding Photography

Kerry was perfect. Easy to get on with and a great sense of humour.

Throughout the whole process she listened to what we wanted & worked with us. She made everyone feel relaxed & became part of the wedding fun. There was added pressure for Kerry knowing our photos were being published in a magazine (Hello) but this didn’t affect her at all, took it all in her stride. Can’t recommend her enough.”

Amy Williams & Craig Ham

Thank you Kerry for being such an important part of our day!

Not only are our wedding photos absolutely gorgeous (no surprise there, the woman is so talented!), it was so much fun spending time with you on the day and you really put us both at ease. Highly highly recommend Kerry if you’re after a brilliantly talented photographer who also happens to be the loveliest person. Best wedding decision!”

We cannot recommend Kerry highly enough

She is easy to work with and she took the most beautiful , characterful photos of us and our friends and family from our amazing wedding day. We chose her as our photographer as she did not seem to take the usual staged photos but very natural ones and that is exactly what we got. She captured the essence of our day so beautifully. She also made us a slide show that was a complete surprise which included a soundtrack of special words and music from our day. It is magical. I would give her 10 stars quite frankly but there is not an option for that.”
