Kate Mayo Wedding Photography is the sister wedding company to Kat Hannon Photography. I launched Kate Mayo Wedding Photography in 2010 after being asked to photograph weddings throughout my earlier career. I wanted an exclusive name. Something away from my commercial work and dedicated to illustrating the most wonderful moments I have had the honor of capturing. I chose my married name to start this adventure.

My background started in fashion. I studied Fashion Styling and Image Making. I then went to London to study Black and White Photography and Printing at Central St. Martins. I launched my career as an assistant and freelance photographer whilst working out of a studio in Camden, and interning at Arena Magazine.

After ten years I relocated to Chester to have a family. I restarted my two photography businesses after a year out and I am now well established in Chester. I have photographed many wedding here in the North West, North Wales and the Lake District.

I shoot around twelve weddings a year as weekends are usually reserved for precious family time. Luckily my commercial photography business fills in rest of the year nicely. But you just can’t beat a great wedding!!

I have also made front cover of Your Cheshire & Merseyside Wedding Magazine and I am the official photographer for The Cheshire Wedding Fayre.

Info

Capturing your wedding day is one of the most honourable jobs I am asked to do. It is a wonderful process of working with clients to who invest time and money to plan and organize their wedding, to sharing my experience, love and wisdom of the industry.

As a visionnaire, photographer and bride myself I realize how precious it is that my clients trust I will capture their special day. I consider myself the third pair of eyes for moments perhaps the couple miss or moments that they are in and would like to see for themselves. I am also reminded that that you hired me because you love my creative style and flare which I will bring to every image. Based around this concept I developed these packages to capture the full vision of the day.

If you decide to invest in an album I also design these from scratch. They are beautiful bespoke coffee table albums, designed in the UK and made in Italy. The end product is like a storybook of memories that sit neatly on the shelf ready to pull out when its memory lane time. The front cover is designed with your favourite photograph from your very special day and is protected by stunning perspex glass overlay. The pages are printed on a metallic pearl paper, subtly enhancing colour and depth of your photographs, bound in a light cream leather finish.

Myself and my assistant Kristy are fully insured with our equipment, clients and guests on every location. We have our equipment regularly checked and backup equipment ready to hand.

My wedding photography prices and packages are designed to give you the maximum coverage out of the your wedding day in the knowledge that you’ll get a fabulous suite of photographs to cherish.

Kate Mayo & Kristy

Kristy says, ‘Originally from Basingstoke I relocated to the north seven years ago to attend University in Staffordshire where I met my amazing fiancé. We are now living in Chester with our crazy Labrador Max and a flock of chickens!

My background started with a Fine Art degree focusing on video installations and conceptual art. I then spent 18 months at a dynamic family portrait studio and for the last two years, I have had the honor of being a freelance Photographer’s Assistant for Kate for both her wedding and commercial businesses.

This has been the most fruitful part of my creative career so far as I have been able to develop my skills in all aspects of photography. Wedding photography has allowed me to combine my artistic experiences to document the emotion, beauty and personality of someone’s special day. I am most excited about capturing real one off storytelling moments; an adoring glance or a cheeky interaction.

My favourite trend? Hay bales and wild flower seed wedding favors.
My favourite location? A tipi in the middle of the welsh countryside.

Also as I am getting married myself, I can’t stop thinking about weddings!’
