reflecting you as a couple

Hi, we're Cotton Candy

We’re a company of two best mates with a love of photography, weddings and all things creative.

We shoot pretty and feminine wedding photography with a bit of a quirky, alternative edge.

Our style is to shoot unobtrusive and natural wedding photography with a creative and arty sort of edge. We aim to blend in, we don’t want to get in the way too much or make you do anything you don’t want to do – no forced cheesy positions – we want to capture shots that best represent you as a couple.

We want to provide you with a set of images that document your day, your way. Your guests and family having a good time – the fun, the banter, the laughter, the tears and all the amazing moments in between that make your wedding day so special and unique to you.

Our images are creative, soft and feminine and our approach combines reportage/ documentary style digital photography mixed with timeless and unique film photographs.

Gemma and Philippa from Cotton Candy Wedding Photography


I’m Gemma but most people call me Gem and I am one half of Cotton Candy Photography. I live in sunny Southsea with my husband Adam and our awesome dog Busby. I have a masters in design and marketing and started properly getting into photography about 10 years ago when I bought my first digital SLR – I spent many weekends making Adam take me on photography trips to random locations around Hampshire!

I have been mates with Phil since I was an awkward bleached blonde teenager but we’ve grown up a bit since then and now I am grateful everyday that I am in a creative job that I love, with a mate that I love.

I’m Philippa but most people call me Phil and I am the other half of Cotton Candy Photography. I live in Twickenham with my husband Ash, our dog Wilson and our beautiful baby girl Murphie. I have been into photography ever since I was a little girl when my big bro handed me down his Kodak 110 camera. I think this is where my love of analogue photography began. Since then I have gone on to study at Central St Martins and Brighton University. I was working in my spare time as a photographer when Gem and I got talking over a very large glass of wine and couldn’t understand why we hadn’t already set up something together. After that Cotton Candy Photography was born! and I’m glad we had that conversation – It’s great to be doing something i’ve always been passionate about and having a laugh with my best mate whilst doing it.
