FIND THE PERFECT WEDDING SUPPLIER
For the non-traditional, wild and free weddings, by husband & wife, photography and video duo, Jon James & Emilie Layla Lovaine.
Born & raised off the coast of Wales, the ocean and it’s rural and wild landscape is embedded deep within us. We travel wherever our wild brides and grooms take us, shooting weddings across the globe, capturing love in its most raw and natural form.
We started off as best friends, to then band mates, to then falling in love at university, while both studying Photography for Fashion & Advertising, to now newly-weds 9 years later! We love everything about what we do and we know we are so lucky to get to work alongside each other, as husband and wife and best friends, capturing weddings all across the world.
Being a couple ourselves, it came so naturally to us, being able to capture each couple's unique love for each other. We are adventurers at heart, and when we aren't taking photos or videoing your weddings, you'll find us somewhere in Wales in our campervan, looking for waves!
The Wild Bride was created for the Bohemians, Gypsies and Mermaids, for the more non-traditional, wild & free weddings, so if that sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you! We offer a selection of packages, from our most popular combined photo & video package or our photo only or video only package. We also offer special destination packages for couples getting married outside the UK.
We've spent over 10 years working in music and lifestyle photography & video, working on campaigns for record labels and fashion and lifestyle brands like Roxy, Billabong, Adidas and more, as well as being published and interviewed in magazines like Asos, Company, Cosmopolitan, Nylon, Kerrang, Huck and Surfgirl. We've also worked on a variety of big advertising shoots, commercials and feature films and were also lucky enough to have become finalists in the professional photographer of the year awards. It wasn't until we were booked to capture some of our friend's weddings all those years ago, that we realised just how much we LOVED being a part of such an important and special day, capturing something a little different than the normal 'traditional' weddings.
We can't wait to meet all you wild brides and grooms to be!
