Hi, I'm Sarah, owner of Purple Kite Photography, based in Hertfordshire, but able to travel throughout the UK and beyond for your Wedding!

Planning your wedding is such an exciting time, but I get that it can feel very overwhelming at times too. Please remember, your wedding photos are one of the few wedding day purchases which last a lifetime and more. You should feel confident that your photographer will capture all of the key moments and people in a style that suits you, and will spend time editing them to a high standard afterwards, creating something that you will treasure forever.

I will document every detail of your day, from the small details to the big moments and everything in between. My style is relaxed and natural, preferring to blend into the background, capturing natural moments which express the joy and emotion of the day. Please take the time to read some of the reviews below to hear what my couples think about their experience of choosing me to capture their day.

If you would like to chat more about my Wedding packages and prices, or to meet up to discuss your wedding plans, please get in touch.

Absolutely amazing! Booked with such short notice so did not get much time to talk about what I wanted but I didn’t need to because Sarah was incredible. Didn’t even notice she was there most of the time but she got the most beautiful pictures, especially the natural ones! She captured our very emotional day so well and even managed to slip me a tissue when I needed one! Photos were sent over so quickly too! Thank you so much - I love our photos! 🤍

I am so glad we chose Sarah to be our wedding photographer, from our first phone call, to a chat over coffee I knew she was the one for the job!
I don't know how she does it but you just don't know she's there snapping away, she makes it seem so effortless! She knows how to put you at ease, exactly where you all need to be and doesn't fanny about!
Sarah was super quick at getting our photos to us and WOW they are amazing! They are natural, effortless and captured the absolute joy we felt on the day, we couldn't have asked for more.
Sarah is without doubt a gifted and talented photographer and a wonderful, kind, friendly woman. I cannot recommend Sarah enough.

We LOVE the photos - thank you so much!

The lovely Sarah photographed our wedding in August. She made my husband and I both feel so relaxed and did such a fantastic job. Throughout the day Sarah took so many natural shots and I honestly forgot she was there half the time. She captured so many special moments that we will truly treasure forever.

Look no further for timeless, effortless, natural photography that captures candid moments from start to finish.

Sarah played a vital role on our special day - and she delivered! We are so grateful to have had a photographer whose natural flare and attention to detail have produced stunning photographs to pass on to future generations. Sarah's style is non-interventionalist and prefers to be in the background to allow your day to flow more naturally. She is gifted at finding the beauty in her surroundings, which is reflected in her still life shots. Overall, we are so pleased with the results that we struggle to condense our photographs into our album. We want to fit them all in!

Sarah, as a person, glows! She has a warmth to her which puts you at ease. She likes to get to know you, to make the experience personable. Her communication has been fantastic from start to finish; Sarah is in no rush to ensure your voice is heard. She will extend this by tailoring to your requests. We are glad to have entrusted her, as she will not disappoint!

Sarah’s ability to slip into the day and be present in all the perfect moments without overpowering any moment is a skill that is hard to master, but she did it perfectly. Her smiley, calm presence was a wonderful addition to the day. And the photos are just beautiful, we have had nothing but wonderful comments from our guests about Sarah and her photos. I cannot recommend her enough to be part of your big day!

A professional, flexible and experienced photographer.
We used Sarah for our wedding and from the pre-start meeting, throughout the day of the wedding and the aftercare, she has been nothing but professional, reliable and approachable. She was even able to organise everyone so that we could get the shots that we wanted . . . no easy feat with children running around and it being a hectic day.

We had the best experience with Purple Kite Photography on our wedding day. Sarah was kind and understanding and our photos are as beautiful as our day was. Thank you so much.

Sarah was the photographer for our wedding and she was exceptional throughout the whole process. She was a dream to deal with leading up to the event and just perfect on the day itself. Sarah managed to be unobtrusive and easy as anything for us and our guests on the day and then when we saw the pictures, she had somehow captured everything we wanted and more! Some of the pictures look like stills from a film and all of them perfectly described the joyfulness of our day.

We used purple kite for our wedding photos and they look amazing. Sarah captured the day really well - the pictures are perfect we love them. She took some absolutely beautiful close-up shots of our wedding rings.

​​I’m so happy with my photos! Sarah is extremely friendly and professional, everyone in our party really liked her. From our first meeting discussing what we would like, being flexible & understanding what happened (COVID-19) to having our list of photos we would like and getting a few more by really understanding the setting. When it came to the photos, I was shown some before they were all completed which was so nice and very thoughtful. I would thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting a photographer for their wedding.

I couldn’t have wished for a nicer more reassuring photographer. Sarah made me feel comfortable and confident throughout the wedding.

She managed to capture every moment of the day without being noticed! Photos I will cherish forever! Highly recommended.

We couldn't have asked for a better photographer. From start to finish she was friendly, professional and attentive, taking into account all of our photography requirements, no matter how big or small. She has a lovely manner and made us feel comfortable throughout the day, capturing all of the best moments which we'll cherish forever. I would highly recommend Sarah to anyone looking for a professional photographer.

Sarah did us proud making memories for us to savour and look back on with pleasure forever! She did an array of formal and masses of ‘in the moment’ casual shots capturing every moment of our day. She dedicated so much time to capturing our day, her nature is meticulous, calm and caring, she spent time talking to us, understanding our desires and visiting our venues so was fully prepared. I highly recommend Sarah.
