The 50 Best UK Wedding Photographers 2020

Hearing that I made the GoHen Top UK Wedding Photographers list for the THIRDDDD year in a row was incredible, just the pick me up I needed this summer <3 an absolute honour as always to be included with so much talent!

GoHen said:

'Sarah’s diary usually books up within 18-24 months in advance – yes, she’s in very high demand. One look at her unparalleled portfolio and it’s easy to see why (it’s a little bit WOW, to say the least!). This is her third consecutive appearance in the Top 50, and because she keeps the bar so high, we’re tempted to just make her a permanent fixture..'

GoHen said:

'This award-winning photographer is ‘full of love and light’, it’s no wonder that Sarah has made the Top 50 for a consecutive year. If you’re looking for something unique, captivating and deeply romantic then Sarah is the one for you. Having had her work in a host of publications including the Italian Vogue magazine, she’s the Love Actually of wedding snappers with an eye for timeless imagery.'

50 Best UK Wedding 

Photographers of 2018

The first time GoHen got in touch to say they'd included me in this list I didnt tell anyone for weeks because I thought they'd made a mistake. I cant tell you how gobsmacked I was when I read this too! 

'It was only when Sarah Horton received her own wedding pictures that she realised her dream of becoming a professional photographer, and we are so glad that she did. Otherwise, we would never have feasted our eyes on her stunning portfolio, a dynamic collection of shots that show off Sarah’s eye for the most wedding-photo-album-worthy moments of her special days and the abundance of creativity that’s made her an easy choice for our Top 50.
