Welcome to Fiona Moorey Photography

My name is Fiona Moorey and I am a Bournemouth photographer based in Ferndown. 

I started Fiona Moorey Photography in 2009 as a Wedding Photographer. I had always been a keen amateur photographer and as my children were growing up I decided to go back to college and follow my dream of becoming a wedding photographer. I have loved every minute of it. Each wedding is so very different and unique in it’s own way. I have met some lovely couples along my wedding photography journey, and it has genuinely been a pleasure to be a part of each and every wedding.

I offer a selection of Wedding photography packages to suit different styles and flexible pricing structures which are very competitive. I always use a second Wedding Photographer, enabling one of us to capture the more formal and traditional group shots that are usually a part of every wedding whilst the other captures the candid shots of you and your guests having fun, and all the little details that make your wedding unique to you, giving a perfect balance and telling the story of the day.

A wonderful part of being a wedding photographer is getting to know the bride and groom, I will meet with you before the wedding to go through all your plans and visit your locations. We will draw up a timeline for your day to ensure everything goes to plan and discuss your list of group shots. I offer an engagement shoot which is a greta way for you to find out before the big day how it feels to be in front of the camera, couples have said to me may times what a great experience this is.

I also offer family location photography. Whether you are celebrating a birthday, anniversary or are purely wanting to update your Family Portraits, then why not choose one of my fun location Portrait sessions at one of our stunning local Dorset and Hampshire beauty spots such as Bournemouth or Poole beaches, The New Forest or even in your own garden.

Have a look through my work and if you like what you see then please contact me and we can meet to discuss your requirements

Your Wedding Photography Experience

The booking

  • Contact me to check my availability and we will arrange a meeting to make sure I am the right photographer for you.
  • Once you are happy to proceed, we will sign a simple agreement. You then pay a £200 booking fee (deductible from the final fee) which is a non refundable deposit. I then put the date firmly in the diary.
  • You can then tick a very important job off your list, sit back and relax knowing you are in safe hands.
  • I will contact you nearer the time to complete the paperwork – who, where and when etc, and arrange to look round the venue.

The Planning

  • Together we will fill in a “who’s who” form so I can start get to know the members of your families and bridal party.
  • We will have a wet weather plan (hopefully we won’t need it) I have some white brollies just in case.
  • I try to speak to the registrar or vicar before the wedding to find out if they have any special rules (especially vicars) about photography on the day.
  • I will visit each venue with you so we know where the group shots will be etc. and decide where you want your couple shots to be taken.
  • We will discuss the variations of my style of photography you prefer. Some people like to keep things relaxed and natural some like to add some fun or more stylised shots.
  • We will talk through any group shots you require.
  • After consultation will put together a timeline for the day. All you have to do then is enjoy the day knowing I have it all in hand.
  • I carry spares of everything from batteries to cameras and everything in between, even confetti and bubbles for those who forget.

On the Day

  •  I will arrive in plenty of time to set up, I will start with detail shots of “the dress”, flowers and shoes etc.
  • During the ceremony I will work unobtrusively to capture they special moments of the ceremony. If you choose to have a second photographer (highly recommended) they remain at the back of the ceremony room/church.
  • Usually any formal group shots follow at the church/reception/venue. we will discuss all this in the planning.
  • We will agree a time together when we can capture the couple shots, usually inbetween the ceremony and wedding breakfast.  This is a lovely time for you both as it is the first time you will have been alone as a married couple and the shots at this time are usually very relaxed and natural.
  • Before you sit down to your wedding breakfast we will capture details of the reception room, cake, bridal favours and flowers etc. All those little details oyu have spent months preparing.
  •  When the guests are seated I usually go around and take a photo of the guests on each table.
  • During the wedding breakfast we will take a break while you enjoy your food. We will be back to photograph the speeches.
  • If you have booked an all day package we stay on to photograph the first dance, we then take some shots of your guests dancing and having fun, then we leave you to enjoy the evening.

After the wedding

  • The first thing I do when I get home (even before a glass of wine!) is back up your precious images onto two external hard drives and a cloud ready for editing.
  • With your consent I will put a preview of images on my Facebook business page within a couple of days for you and your guests to enjoy, then get to work editing.
  • I will produce mostly colour with some black and white digital images. All images will be individually edited, cropped, retouched, colour balanced and saved on a presentation USB as high resolution images. You will have full printing rights over the photos but I retain the copyright (all that means is that you can’t sell them) I will also add a folder of low resolution images for you to use on social media.
  • After 5-6 weeks I will contact you when the USB is ready, I will then post it to you.
  • Once you have viewed your photographs they will be uploaded onto my online password protected gallery. Your friends and relatives can then view and order any prints they would like directly from the gallery, delivered to their home. These are professionally printed images.


Frequently asked questions


What happens if you have to cancel?

In the very unlikely event of me being taken ill, I have a very good network of local Professional wedding photographers who would not hesitate to stand in.

What if the photos don’t come out?

This is the very reason you are paying for a professional photographer. As a professional Bournemouth wedding photographer, I take every precaution to make sure everything is fine. I have backup equipment should anything stop working, including a spare camera, flash and lenses. Back up memory cards are used to cover the unlikely event of card failure. Images are regularly checked throughout the day. When I get home I copy the memory cards to external hard drives and cloud storage so nothing is left to chance.

Are you insured?

I am fully insured, including public liability insurance and business indemnity insurance.

What if it rains?

It rarely rains ALL day so we can sometimes just move things around a little or photos can be taken inside the venue, this is something we will discuss when we look around the venue. I also have big white umbrellas!

Do you recommend a second photographer?

Absolutely! Two main reasons for this. Firstly you get a wider range of images, from different angles, most importantly the front and the back of the ceremony. The second photographer is able to capture those fantastic candid images that everyone loves whilst I am busy doing the group shots and couple shots. I always use a professional photographer, someone that I work with frequently. Secondly, if god forbid anything was to happen to me during the day (I told you I was a planner!) then you have someone there, ready to step into my shoes and take over. 

Do we provide you with food?

If we are there during the wedding breakfast and staying into the evening then refreshments of some kind would be much appreciated.

How long before I can see the photos?

I usually have a few to preview on my Facebook business page or  blog  within a few days. The fully edited final images will be put onto USB. This usually takes 6-8 weeks due to the careful editing involved. Once I know you have seen the images they are uploaded onto a password protected gallery for all your friends and family to view.

Do you offer albums?

I strongly suggest you have a professional album of your wedding photos. Having invested in a professional photographer it is a real shame if your photographs don’t get the presentation they deserve.

I offer beautiful hand made albums. They are of exceptional quality. You choose which photos are in the album and I design it. These can be ordered up to a year after the wedding with interest free instalments ( for orders over £500)

How and when do we pay for the wedding photography?

When you book your wedding with me I ask for a booking fee of £200. The balance is payable in full one month before the wedding. You can pay by cash or bank transfer.

Do you mind other guests taking photos?

That is fine of course. However, I will occasionally ask to take mine first so that everyone is looking at my camera, then everyone else can take theirs.

I will take the bride and groom off for a short time during the day to take shots alone. It is also the first time you are alone as a married couple so it is very special. Some couples want to go somewhere picturesque for these shots e.g the beach which is lovely if time allows. I prefer to do this alone with you.
