Wedding and Handfasting Photographer UK
MY OWN STORY
I am Nadina Bee,
Specialist Outdoor Wedding & Handfasting Photographer UK and Dog Photographer.
I am also a dogmother, nature lover, restless camper, and fantasy story addict.
If you had to sum me up in three words, it would be: NATURE, DOGS and MAGIC.
The medium I have chosen to capture these with is photography.
I just love being in nature.
The outdoors and the environment have always been my thing. I think it is because I grew up on a (nearly) defunct farm. I say ‘nearly defunct’ because our stable was only ever half full and our animals were strictly pets. Not for eating!
Even with this rather humble operation, most of my time was spent out of doors and seeing first-hand how nature works its magic.
And also how we influence it, intentionally and unintentionally.
My favourite place is the seaside and I simply can’t stay away.
You will often find me in my campervan on small campsites by the coast.
A place where I can go for an evening walk on the beach and then fall asleep listening to the sound of waves crashing ashore. Ahh, magical!
I love the sea so much, we travelled to Cornwall to have additional wedding photos taken…
Show of hands, who agrees there is no such thing as too many dogs?
Yes, I got both hands in the air. This is probably not a surprise to anyone who has read paragraph 01.
It also won’t be a surprise, that it’s not just dogs I share my life with. My house has been called the menagerie more than once.
Some years ago, I had as many as 4 dogs and 2 pet rats sharing my little house on the outskirts of Paris with me. Totally crazy, I know. And I would totally do it again!
At the moment, my family consists of two dogs, 10 pond-dwelling goldfishes, and two humans. All living in Guildford in Surrey.
One member of my Paris pack is still with us: Aidan, the little guy with the great hair.

Yes, I borrowed Hagrid’s motorbike
There is undoubtedly magic in nature.
But you know where there is also magic?
I am too old to receive a letter from Hogwarts, so instead I am waiting for Gandalf to come and take me on an adventure.
…how old was Bilbo, seventy-something?
I am a naturally patient person, but not that patient! So while waiting upon a wizard, I read a lot.
And sometimes I provide my own adventures: I travel, I hike, I climb… and every now and then I laze on the beach and listen to the waves crash ashore…accompanied by the rhythmic snoring of my dogs.
