Melissa Beattie

Melissa Beattie is a fine art wedding and lifestyle photographer who we love to work with! Melissa’s style of photography captures the natural interaction and moments of happiness on your Big Day. She loves to be by your side to tell your story so you can look back on your most treasured memories from your special day. Melissa loves to travel far and wide to capture your Big Day and no detail is too big or small – so where ever you are in the UK she will come to you.

Melissa was the photographer behind our amazing boho bride shoot at Delamere Manor in March which we hosted with Jean Jackson Couture, Maxine Smith MUA, Vicky Millington Hair, Springbank and Boss Model Management. She made the shoot everything we wanted to be and the pictures turned out amazing.


Carl Sukonik

Carl Sukonik is the photographer who helped us right in the beginning during the launch of Big Chief Tipis. We have known Carl for around 5 years now and he has taken some amazing pictures for us and has been part of some great photo shoots. He shot our Festival, Classic and Rustic shoots when we set up our tipis for their big debut and he did an amazing job!
