Hello! My name’s Nichola and I am the photographer otherwise known as Lemonade Pictures. I specialise in natural, fun, quirky wedding photography and I photograph in a documentary style. I am a Kent based Wedding Photographer, although I do tend to photograph weddings (and other cool things) all round the UK and even abroad! This year I’m photographing a wedding in Spain and one in France! I’m not going to write pages on my life story, as getting to know each other is a good excuse for a coffee and some cakes, but I will tell you a few things that make me, me…
I have always been creative, and after finishing school I went on to study Animation at Bournemouth University, I then spent a year working as an Animator in London whilst photographing weddings as a hobby. I fell in love with photography and I finally moved into the full time wedding world as a professional photographer just over 7 years ago.
I have jumped out of a plane at 15,000 ft, I have a huge dog called Bauer (yes I am a huge ’24’ fan), and I have an abnormal phobia of walking down stairs that lack a banister. My favourite drink is home made lemonade – hence the name. I spend the majority of my life smiling, and regularly get told by my photo-phobic couples that I make them feel at ease in front of the camera “because you’re actually really funny” – I’ll take that as a compliment. Two years I got married, I had two weddings (why not!) one was in Iceland! Last year I had a baby called Hugo, he’s such a dude and regularly makes an appearance on my Instagram!
The last seven years have been a whirlwind of fun (as well as a lot of hard work!), but I have met so many amazing couples and have had the chance to photograph well over 300 weddings. Here’s a brief list of my Lemonade Pictures achievements, yay!
- In 2013 I won ‘Best New Photographer’ in Kent (Wedding Industry Experts)
- I have had work published on the covers/insides of magazines such as ‘Your Kent Wedding Magazine’, ‘National Wedding Magazine’ and ’Brides Etc’
- Regional finalist for the Best Wedding Photographer 2015 & 2016 (Wedding Industry Awards)
- Regional finalist for the Kent Best Wedding Photographer 2015 (Kent Wedding Awards)
- I have also been featured multiple times on popular wedding blogs such as Rock My Wedding, Whimsical Wonderland Weddings, Rock and Roll Bride and So You’re Getting Married.
- I am also lucky enough to be classed as a Fearless photographer – a group of the worlds best wedding photographers.

We can arrange a coffee and a chance for you to look through some of my albums- and I would love to hear more about your day. I get around 250 enquiries per year so unfortunately I am pretty much full for 2019, and 2020 dates are filling up fast!
