Wedding and elopement photographer for adventurous couples

I’m Gem, founder of Gemma Holly Wedding Photography. With over 15 years’ experience as a professional photographer, I work with fun-loving and creative couples across London and the South East to document their totally unique wedding – whether that’s at home or abroad, a big ol’ shindig with all the bells and whistles, or a quiet intimate elopement.


Whether you’re tying the knot at home or abroad, look back on each moment with beautiful, natural, docu-style photography.


As well as being a great experience for you both, pre-wedding engagement shoots are a perfect way for us to get to know each other before the big day.


Getting away from it all doesn’t mean a compromise on your wedding photos. Let’s capture every detail for you and everyone back home.


If your two has become a three (or four, five or more!), I offer fun and unforgettable outdoor family shoots on a local basis.

“Gem captured our day so beautifully. It felt like hanging out with a friend.”

Creative photography for alternative weddings

Let’s create something beautiful…

Alternative, unconventional, “not your average couple”. However you describe yourselves, you’ve probably found me because you want something a little bit different when it comes to your wedding photography.

For me, it’s about catching you at your most natural, as you really are.

I do this by getting to know you beforehand, learning what’s important to you. As well as helping me nail your preferences and expectations, it gives you a chance to get to know me and feel more comfortable ahead of the big day!

Think of me as a fly-on-the-wall at your wedding, mingling with the crowd and catching all those little moments. Those meaningful looks, those head turns, those hand squeezes…all those things which tell the real story of your day.

Whatever it takes to get that perfect shot – climbing trees, lying in the mud – I’ve been known to do it! And believe me, it’s worth it when I hand over your incredible collection of photos, each one as unique as you are.

My photographic style can be described as…

Creative, natural, documentary/photojournalistic, romantic, fun, candid and real.
