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 ten years, blimey! We’d describe our style as almost documentary! But in our words - uncontrived, unobtrusive and creative, 'story-telling' photography. 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 we really, REALLY floats our creative boats.
Our natural, reportage 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.
We live in a very pretty and sometimes very weird village of Whimple, which is just a few miles East of Exeter in Devon. When we're not photographing weddings or editing weddings or talking to lovely couples about weddings, we are lucky parents to two amazing little boys, Charley and Drew. Nova has been our full time business for ten years and we consider ourselves so lucky to be able to photograph incredible love stories all over Devon, Somerset, Cornwall and Dorset. This next bit when I get chance will be a bit more about me and Steve and about how we met in a design agency, slowly falling in love over a mutual love of good coffee and Swiss typography. But that really is a very long (and erm, geeky) story...
