Jay Mountford – the wedding photographer

Jay Mountford Wedding photographer

I was banging on for ages on the run up to our wedding in March just how excited I was that Jay Mountford would be capturing the moments of our wedding and now it’s time for me to tell you what it’s really like having her there whilst you prepare for the biggest day of your life.

Trust me, the day whizzes by and before you know it, Jay will be saying, ‘Right that’s me done, wishing you all the best and I’ll be in touch when the photos are ready.’ Maybe not as abrupt as that but there will come a time when her work is done.

and you will be sad.

This super woman, amazingly creative, little bit bossy, funny, chatty (dirty laugh) lady will go and you’ll be left with that ‘I wish it could have lasted a little bit longer‘ feeling. Not because she skips away before her time, no no no but you find yourself having amazing fun whilst she’s around. Here take a look at this video that Oliver Kiell kindly made of her at work then you’ll really get the feel of what it’s like…

You can see on Jay’s wedding photography blog a great selection of photos she took of us on the day, then Boho Weddings featured her stuff too as they liked it so much (my incy wincy celeb moment) and here’s a small selection of my favourites from that very special day now over a month ago.

I could go on forever and I wouldn’t bore you as all the shots are stunning so if you’re undecided I promise you she’s good, she’s better than good and will become such an important part of your day you’ll love it.

Go book her now and tell her I sent you ;)

    Love your wedding photos! They’re all gorgeous, but the one with all 5 generations is such a lovely photo to have. I love Jay’s photos, only seen her in action at the first Cyber Mummy a few years ago though but she was such a laugh and the images she takes are amazing, I can imagine she makes a wonderful wedding photogrpaher!

      I was there at that session too. I turned up late and she ‘shouted’ at me but like you say all in good humour. If I had to do it all again I’d go straight back to her, in fact I’m waiting for my two older kids to tie their knots now :)

    Truly stunning photos as were you, Mari I have alump in my throat. The most stunning wedding cake I have ever seen and some beautiful, loving shots. I always favour black and white portraits somehow. Go for both! H x
