Emma is a professional photographer who has specialised in the wedding industry for 13 years. Her belief is that the art of photography is about compassion, conveying emotion and telling a story as well as composition, technical skill and postproduction. Emma is a fully qualified member of The Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers and with a BA Honours Degree in Photography. She is lucky enough to have studio bases in both Hertfordshire and Dorset but also loves to travel for inspiration.


We at The Italian Villa have been lucky enough to work directly with Emma for many years, and she has been one of our personally recommended suppliers for the last two years. Emma exhibits with us 3 times per year at our Wedding Shows and has photographed many of our couple’s special day here at The Italian Villa.



Working with Emma…

 “We love working with Emma Hurley, not only does she create breath-taking images, she builds great relationships with her couples and that shines through the incredible moments she is able to capture. The whole team at The Italian Villa find Emma a delight to work with both in the lead-up and on our client’s wedding days and we have only heard amazing feedback from our clients too. We certainly recommend Emma for an experienced and talented wedding photographer, who knows the venue and our grounds so well.”

What Emma says about working with us…

“As a photographer who has specialised in the wedding industry for thirteen years, we can genuinely say The Italian Villa is one of the most exclusive and experienced venues we have ever had the pleasure of working with. Over the years we have encountered so many couples searching for the perfect venue and then they look no further once they have found this little gem! From steppingstones over the lake in the secret gardens to waterfalls and wisteria, there are quite simply endless backdrops to enjoy and explore all year round. If you are planning your wedding and are looking for a once in a lifetime experience for your guests, breath-taking scenery and mouth-watering food then you genuinely do not need to look any further!”
