With so many elements to consider when planning a wedding it’s refreshing to find two of your most important services under one roof. The Jasmine Cottage Studio offers just that – both wedding photography and stationery either individually or as a joint package!
Proprietor, Lindsay Smith, is not only a professional photographer with many years experience under her belt and a stunning image gallery to boot, she’s also a skilled graphic artist who will produce imaginative wedding stationery for you. In a nutshell she’ll work with you to bring your vision to life, or provide the inspirational ideas to help you decide on a truly personal approach.
After completing her fine art degree, Lindsay specialised in photography working full time for a number of years within marketing and it’s this experience that’s enabled her to hone her skills as the consummate professional. The Jasmine Cottage Studio was subsequently born in 2017 when Lindsay left her job and moved with her partner, from her home county of Worcestershire, to North Lincolnshire. Lindsay was then able to realise her long-held dream of launching her own business offering a truly personalised stationery and photography service.
You can choose either service independently from The Jasmine Cottage Studio, however Lindsay’s approach is so friendly and flexible that her clients often end up booking both services to save time and achieve that all-important consistency of style.
Lindsay prides herself on truly getting to know couples from the off so she can provide you with the experience you desire and deserve for your special day. Then not only will you benefit from unique stationery, the concept will also translate to photography if you want it to, as she will have a clear picture of how you’d like to shape the occasion. Don’t forget – your stationery will provide loved ones and guests with the first glimpse into your special day.
When it comes to photography, Lindsay has an incredible talent for producing stylish and beautifully lit images that capture everything from decorative touches, to laugh or reflective moment and other intimate memories you’ll keep forever. Instead of having clients feel uncomfortable in front of the camera as so many claim, she’s known for putting people at ease and as a result couples are loving her and her feet haven’t touched the ground in the last 2 years.
As well as the classic traditional group shots, Lindsay encourages candid informal photography, which capture natural ‘in the moment memories’ that make weddings so special.
There are set photography packages available covering both stationery and photography – even including pre-wedding shoots – or you can benefit from a truly bespoke service, tailored to your every need.
Lindsay advises clients to work a year to 18 months in advance when booking your photographer if possible and says that weekday weddings are becoming more popular so don’t be worried about keeping to a Saturday. Once you’ve emailed your enquiry through The Jasmine Cottage Studio’s website, providing as much information as you can about the date, location and the type of wedding you’d like, Lindsay will reply highlighting a particular package if it’s relevant and/or a bespoke quote; alternatively she may request more information so she can provide the best possible service and price to suit your budget.
A woman who thrives on customer service (and someone who is also planning her own nuptials!) Lindsay knows it’s important to stay in touch with you until your big day arrives so you have the peace of mind that she is part of your wedding journey. On the day Lindsay will be with you to capture everything as arranged, whether it’s the start of the preparations, the ceremony and the reception or just the evening entertainment, leaving you and your guests to relax and enjoy the occasion.
Typically within a month after the event you’ll receive a unique password protected platform to view your photographs. Depending on the chosen package, you’ll receive a USB memory stick as standard, but you can also opt for a selection of your favourite photos as prints, or a photo album to give your bookcase that extra sentimental touch!
The final word goes to Lindsay who is looking forward to developing a full wedding planning service long-term: “Not only have I been a couple’s stationery designer and photographer, but also their agony aunt when they have needed one and advisor on all things wedding related! I thoroughly enjoy what I do and am truly grateful to each and every couple for allowing me to be part of their special day!”
Make your wedding a day to remember and choose the photographer and stationery designer that everyone’s talking about…
