Wedding photography should be a fun and enjoyable part of your wedding day. I capture the story of the day as it unfolds unobtrusively and my photography doesn't take over the day.

A little background information. I spent 4 fun-packed years as a photography student, oh how I miss those student days! Lol I've been a full-time professional photographer for 25 years and run our successful photography business with my wife Sara for 15 of those years! Most of our couples find us via the Internet just like you! :-) Some Brides discover us through a Google Search or book us because we've been recommended to them by friends. Our initial meeting will usually be in a local hotel close to my home. Not that I don't have a lovely house, I do but I also have a young Daughter who likes to play with her LEGO! :-) Believe me you wouldn't want to stand on a LEGO piece it hurts! At the initial meeting I like to show couples recent weddings on my iPad and a few of our beautiful sample Wedding Story Books so you get a real feel for the quality of our Wedding Photography! A deposit of £250 secures your wedding date in our diary together with a signed contract. Brides usually book us 1-2 years in advance of their big day, booking early is essential especially for peek Wedding Season dates! Most of our Bride's love our Engagement Photo Shoots! They offer the perfect opportunity to get to know one another and for me to show you just how efficiently I capture the two of you. I prefer to take natural and relaxed photographs that will hopefully make you smile. A Signing Frame is a great way to display one of your Engagement Shoot images! Your Wedding Guests will love leaving a congratulatory short message on the wide photo mount. Around a month before your Wedding we'll usually arrange to meet at your wonderful Wedding Venue to chat about your Wedding Plans. I like to have a wander around the gardens to discuss your Wedding Photography and listen to any ideas you might have. I like to be organised and have a plan, this helps your day run smoothly and most importantly to time! I'm often asked if I work for the Wedding Venue because I work closely with the Venue.

What is your most memorable wedding?
My most memorable Wedding has to be one with 11 Bridesmaids and 3 dogs which made the day very interesting! The Venue had the most beautiful grounds and the weather was so good that the Wedding Ceremony was outdoors.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Natural, fun, happy, relaxed and exciting
What about your business are you most proud of?
I'm most proud to have been a full-time professional photographer for over 28 years!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Your Wedding Day will flash by! My number 1 Wedding Tip is to leave enough time to enjoy it. Plan a relaxed Wedding day with plenty of time for you and your Wedding Guests to make the most of it!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
This is easy, my favourite personal touch has to be the Groom that sent a DVD of the couples photographic moments from when they first met up to the Wedding to the Brides Parents house. There were a lot of tears from the Bride and Bridesmaids whilst they sat and watched it!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
After our initial meeting, depending on the collection ordered we may have an Engagement Photo Shoot. Next around a month before your Wedding we meet at your Wedding Venue to discuss your Wedding Plans and ideas. On your Wedding Day I capture the story of your Wedding through the lens of my camera. Usually we will post produce your Wedding Photographs within a week of your Wedding! This means that you may be able to view your Wedding images whilst on honeymoon! :-)
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
The number 1 Wedding Photograph every couple should have is one that captures the essence of the day.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
The most original Wedding Photograph I've been asked to take has to be a double heart shape formed by all the Wedding Guests which I captured from above.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Rainy day Weddings can be a nightmare for Wedding Photographers. I always have a “Plan B” but I recommend Brides choose a venue with a great interior just incase the Wedding Photographs have to be captured indoors.
Describe how you got into photography.
I became interested in photography from a very early age when a family friend gave me my first camera together with free film processing and printing which helped me hone my skills as a photographer!
