I’m Alethiea of Xander and Thea and I’m a fine art wedding photographer living in the Midlands but travelling worldwide to provide couples with vibrant, light and evocative images. I can think of nothing better than capturing intimate, never-to-be-repeated moments and the Italian in me truly believes that love should be celebrated.

It's true to say that my whole life has led me to this point. I grew up on the idyllic Italian Riviera, in the romantic mountains of Tuscany and also in the wedding industry as my Mother was a wonderful floral stylist. Living in Italy fuelled my passion for Fine Arts and fashion, and my love of beauty and high quality craftsmanship - and this can certainly be seen in my work now. I am an artist at heart and this impacts every aspect of my life - the way I work, the way I live and the way I think.

However, if I were to leave it at that, I wouldn't be telling you the whole story because there's more to me than my cameras. I’m a hopeless romantic who believes in true love and the beauty of building a life with a partner. My family mean everything to me and perhaps this is one of the reasons why recording relationships through photography is a huge part of who I am.
