Contact Mel Waite







Mel has a relaxed documentary based style and she likes to focus on bringing out your personality as well as the feeling of the day. Mel knows that every wedding is different and special to the couple getting married and feels it is important to have the right photographer for you, someone who is flexible and able to incorporate their skills and experience with your ideas and needs to capture the memories the way you want them. She has lots of experience and has won lots of awards that you don't really need to know about but what Mel does what you to know is that she is rather fond of cake.
