MEET DESIRÉE

a Fine Art wedding photographer. Capturing weddings across the UK, France & Italy.

To a little girl, it was wondrous growing up around cameras with both parents being photographers.  I still treasure that magical feeling of seeing an image manifest itself, as me and dad developed film in our home DIY darkroom.   Everywhere we went,  my mum or my dad took photos of everything happening around us.  

A snapshot into time, the freezing of an emotion, the capturing of a fleeting moment.  As an adult, I can appreciate the value of those photos today. 

 

This is why I do what I do.  Creating images of special moments in people's lives, natural and timeless.  There for your future self, for your Children, and your children's children.  

I aim to let you enjoy your day,  entrusting that I will be there forever scouting for the best laughs, because every second of your wedding day is special.

I understand that every couple is different and requires a bespoke approach, so every experience is designed especially for you.

I'm from the stunning island of Malta, and have been living in the UK for 10 beautiful years. 'Bongu' pronounced 'bon-ju',  inspired by the french 'Bon Jour' means good morning in Maltese.

Pet Hate

Putting anything exotic on Pizzas. I love it the classic way, the mediterranean way, with a nice crispy crust, a tomato base, a dash of herbs, fresh juicy mozzarella and a shave of truffles.

"Absolutely over the moon with Desiree and her photos! Quickly, easy and reliable communication, she helped ease some worries and provided solutions when I was faced with issues that I thought may affect photos. She has been wonderful!  Professional, friendly ... captured all the important parts of the wedding; our new rings... it was perfect... She’s been fantastic"
