Wedding photography


I photograph weddings in London and the home counties and destination weddings across Europe. I work with you to produce creative, imaginative and beautiful wedding photographs as a lasting memory of your wedding day.

I have photographed all types of weddings from the smallest wedding with just the bride and groom and a handful of guests in a boutique hotel to the largest of weddings with hundreds of people in country house, stately home or castle. It doesn’t matter where you are getting married, what is important is that you share my enthusiasm for beautiful photography.  I will produce a fabulous set of photographs for you presented beautifully whether in a hand-made Fine Art wedding album or in our bespoke digital package.

Your Wedding Day

I cover all of the top London wedding venues and regularly travel to the capital to meet clients to discuss their wedding plans and what I can do for them. Offering fine art wedding albums you can see and feel the quality of these british made fine art products. I travel across the world documenting weddings and my photography style is a mixture of creative fashion led images of the bride and groom and a mix of reportage or candid wedding photograph capturing those often unseen moments that are missed during the wedding ceremony or reception. Starting with Bridal preparations in the morning with the final touches of the brides makeup and photographs of her wedding dress, shoes and jewellery, then groom preparations with relaxed images of the groom nervously tying his tie and polishing his shoes before putting his cufflinks in his shirt and getting ready to set out on the adventure which is your wedding day.

After covering the wedding ceremony with key signature shots of the arrival of the bride and exchange of rings and the first kiss I move off to the reception venue for reportage wedding photography of the guests during your reception with champagne and canapés, I then take the bride and groom away for a short time for some creative wedding photographs before returning for some group shots and more candid photography and then onto the wedding breakfast then the speeches, cutting of the cake and dancing into the evening.
