Full Description
As one of the most experienced wedding photographers in the region, I've covered most, if not all types of wedding ceremonies, ranging from the small intimate group in a local register office to several hundreds of guests in a cathedral. Although I’m based in the Midlands, it has it’s advantages, because my central location allows me to cover all over the midlands, the UK and abroad. I'm an active member of the WEDDING PHOTOJOURNALIST ASSOCIATION (WPJA), so rather than take over the day with endless group photographs, I want you to enjoy your family and friend’s company as much as possible, while I blend into the background to capture those precious moments that too often go unnoticed. Recording those memories that become timeless. Yes, a few group and personal photographs will be taken, but as the day is all about you… these posed photographs will be taken quickly and professionally to minimise the time you’re away from your guests. Since qualifying with the MPA (Master Photographers’ Association) and the BIPP (British Institute of Professional Photographers), I’ve been the Photographer of the Year twice, won various awards and now bring my unique style and photographic eye to your wedding. It goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway, I am fully insured both for liability and indemnity and I always have back-up equipment with me.

Thank-you so much!!
Thank-you so much for all your effort photographing our wedding. We have had great feedback from the guests about you. It was really nice that you went to the church and the barn beforehand to have photos of these. As advertised, you were very discreet and we rarely noticed you were there. You managed to move around to get different angles in the church, which we had thought might be difficult given what the vicar had said, but we are glad as it was nice to have these shots. Sam has an enduring memory of you running over as the bus arrived. You seemed to be able to move quickly when needed! We also appreciated meeting you beforehand and your easy going manner was just what we were looking for. Thanks again, and best wishes for the future. Love from Sam and Anna

We absolutely love LOVE the photos!
We absolutely love LOVE the photos. They are amazing. It's like you were everywhere without being seen. In all honesty I've already viewed them 10 times already and I'm still not done.

Wow!!
Clive, Wow. Words cannot express enough just how amazed we truly are with our wedding photos. We knew from looking at your portfolio that you were the photographer for us; simply because of your style and sheer top quality of your images and your attention to detail…. and then after having our pre wedding shoot photos back we were so excited for you to capture our special day… and you didn't disappoint!! We've been waiting in suspense the last three weeks for these images to be ready because we knew they'd be great and on behalf of Lizzie and myself I can honestly say you've done a truly wonderful job. We cannot thank you enough for these they are so beautiful and you have captured the whole vibe and atmosphere of the day perfectly. We will always sing your praises and encourage as much as we can for people to hire you to do their wedding photography because you are simply one of the best around. Thank you again. You've helped make beautiful memories that will last a lifetime.

Thank-you for the priceless memories!
Clive, We got back late Wednesday evening and saw your email - we couldn't resist watching the slideshow of all 739 photos! Safe to say we were exhausted at work on Thursday, but it was so worth it! We fell in love with the photos and the day all over again. Thank you so much for the priceless memories you have captured of the best day of our lives! We will recommend you to everyone we know. You're such a professional, talented but chilled out guy! Your style of photography fits perfectly with our relaxed day! Thank you so much xx

I dabbled in photography as hobby many moons ago, started with landscapes and a few portraits. Then one day a friend asked if I'd be interested in shooting their wedding. After hesitatingly agreeing, I've not looked back since then.
