Sarah Hinchliffe Photographer

Sarah is a professional wedding photographer.  She has trained in making documentaries for which she won a Royal Televison Society award for her documentary work on camera. She now concentrates solely on weddings. She has never advertised, yet her photographic services are highly sought after thanks to recommendations from fellow wedding professionals and previous clients. Her work has been published by the BBC Online, Cotswold Style, Polo Times and featured accross several wedding blogs including the infamous Rock n Roll Bride, Wonderful Whimiscal Weddings and Festival Brides. This has all been at the request of her clients.


Photography is a way of celebrating and documenting all that is wonderful in life. It's a unique way of telling a story, showing the character and emotion of a person at one moment in time. Most of the day is captured in a documentary or reportage style. That means the photographer works around your day rather than posing or staging shots. The exception is for any requested group shots and the bride and groom portraits. They don't take up much time but a bit of gentle guidance to make sure everyone looks their best is on hand. 

Currently, Sarah only takes on a limited number of weddings per year, and is usually booked up a year in advance.  Please contact to check availability for your wedding day.


Sarah is based in Cheltenham, but recommendations are now taking her beyond the Cotswolds, accross the UK. Guests that have seen her work at their friends weddings, are often keen to book her for their wedding day too. Just ask, all locations are considered. 


It is so nerve wracking choosing a photographer because there really is only one chance for them to get it right, but from the moment we met Sarah we just knew she was the one! From the sunny day in the park where she took some natural photos of us with our dog to the engagement shoot at our venue, we have had so much fun together over the last year. We spent many evenings sharing ideas on pinterest and Sarah never shied away from creating a 'moment' whether with bubbles, confetti or tramping through daisy fields to catch the setting sun on our big day - she is tirelessly enthusiastic and creates some serious magic (not only because her photography is fabulous but because you would never know she is there!)

Sarah is professional, extremely talented and above all, truly cares about what you want - she makes photographic dreams become a reality... we really cannot recommend Sarah enough. The photographs we have really will be cherished forever and we still look at them and can't believe that was our wedding. Total superstar!

 Sarah was fantastic leading up to our wedding and on the day itself. She consistently kept in touch with us throughout the whole process. On the wedding day, she was calm and friendly and didn't let " a little" rain affect what photo opportunities we could have. The final photos & album are excellent! She captured our day perfectly. We have had many comments from family & friends regarding the fabulous quality of our wedding album. Thank-you Sarah for all your hard work.
