Paula couldn’t have been more professional. We wanted lots of relaxed photos to capture the atmosphere of the day. She gave us so many beautiful photos and we barely realised she was there on the day. As two people who don’t really like being in front of the camera, we were made to feel totally at ease. Thank you

Your wedding photographs will remind you how emotional you felt on the day. The way he looked at you and smiled. The memories of dancing with your dad. How amazing it felt to be marrying the love of your life, how grateful you were to have your whole family celebrating together. The images will remind you of the commitment you made to each other, of two families coming together, of fleeting moments captured in a photograph.

My couples often say how well my pictures capture the atmosphere of the wedding day and how relaxed and unaware of the camera they look. It’s because is I’m focusing on documenting moments, on light, elegant images that tell a story of your day, that will look timeless and evoke emotions every time you look at them. Each wedding is personal & unique. You will receive your beautiful and meaningful wedding photographs and will be instantly taken back to these happy memories. Your dog licking your face with pure delight on the morning of your wedding. The last images with your beloved granny. Your niece rocking that flower girl outfit & taking a snack break between all the family group shots. All those intimate & loving images are for you. Print them, frame them & put them in your family home.


I accept a limited number of weddings per year to make sure you get exceptional images and services. If you’re planning an amazing wedding in Northern Ireland, Ireland or anywhere in Europe, I’d love to be a part of it and keep those happy memories alive in my images for you.

Investment for weddings starts at £1499 for a half day coverage with a beautiful 8x8 inch photobook & all edited high-resolution digital images included.


Why choose Hello Sugar?

  • We work together to establish what's most important to you on your big day & how we can bring that vision to life.

  • You’re in the hands of a true professional. Relax, enjoy the celebration and make memories while everything else is well taken care of throughout the whole planning process, on your wedding day & after. I’ll be there every step of the way.

  • I obtained a master's degree in Journalism & Communication from Queens University in Belfast, along with a few years of experience in photographing weddings around Europe. What does this mean for your wedding? You can trust me to capture your most intimate, candid, romantic, and most celebratory moments. I pose and direct you effortlessly & manage to gather large parties for perfect group composition.

  • I'm easygoing and unobtrusive, which helps to get most natural images - your guests won't even know they are being photographed.

  • Even if you’re a little camera shy (or a lot) you don’t have to worry. Majority of my couples prefer natural, unposed images and I know how to capture those unforced emotions & flattering angles. You’re in the hands of a professional and I’m there to make it stress-free.

When do we get our images?
I endeavour to deliver your gallery within 4 to 6 weeks after the wedding day. Albums usually take 8 weeks to design & produce.

How many photos are we going to get?
It all depends on the number of hours I’m with you on the wedding day. I would say 600 for half a day & up to 1000 from a full day. I deliver your photographs in an incredible online gallery, which includes cloud backup for one year. From the gallery, you can download, share and print any images.

Can we meet in person?
Most of my couples have a busy professional life & I’ll always strive to make wedding planning easier for them, therefore video calls or phone calls are preferred. Alternatively, if you have a day off and want to see my selection of albums I’m happy to arrange a very informal meeting over the best coffee in Belfast :)

Do you take engagement photos/ family photos?
Yes, and yes, engagement photos are a wonderful opportunity to break the ice and feel a bit more relaxed in front of the camera. Family photos, on the other hand, are a natural next step in creating wonderful family heirlooms & memories. Down the line, those family images are how generations to come after are going to remember us - just think how amazing it would feel to display them on your daughter’s (or son’s) wedding in a few decades.

Do you have insurance?
Yes, I have full liability insurance, and I also have backup photography equipment.

Paula is an incredible photographer with lovely soft, natural tones in her style. She captured magical photos of myself and my husband. If there is one thing that I will never forget was her ability to make us burst into tears from laughter. Paula was also very helpful in general over the past 8 months, I have asked her so many questions. Most photographers will not have time to help you plan, yet Paula is very friendly and approachable. She has a keen eye for all kinds of photos. Would highly recommend her for your wedding. We have such a variety from Paula, for our wedding album. Thank you!
