'Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.' J F Kennedy
'Choosing Yvonne to be our photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.' Samantha & Andrew Knight.
I'm Yvonne Lishman, an alternative wedding photographer. I photograph pets too. I'm based in Nottingham but I travel the UK to photograph funky offbeat weddings. I trained as a medical photographer but weddings are much more fun, there's a lot less blood for a start! I got married back in the day when it was group after group. I had a perm; I looked like a Cocker Spaniel in a white dress. No one looked very happy. Wedding photography’s not like that anymore, and thank the lord neither is my hair. It's not conventional or formal, it’s not about set shots or endless groups, it's about telling the story of your big day through happy and original imagery with your personality shining from it. It’s about using light, natural and set up, in ways that make your images stand out from the crowd. If your wedding photography is important to you and you'd like yours to be brilliant and different then you've landed on the right page! I love my job so it really doesn’t feel like work and if you love my images, and they seem different to all the others you’ve seen, then my style is your style too.
My work's featured in various places including; BBC3's Don't Tell The Bride, Rock My Wedding, Bespoke Bride, The Wedding Community, Monty Manatee Weddings, Heineken, Black Meringue, House Beautiful, Metro.
