Full Description
Whether an elopement wedding for two in the smallest venue, through to 300 guests at the grandest venues anywhere in The World (yes I do destination weddings) don't you deserve the best ? Its about shooting the connection, the subtle glances, the little details, all gone in a blink of an eye and lost forever. My challenge is to create striking images by using a combination of different styles so when looking back at these windows in time in say 10 years time you transported back in an instant and connected. My images have an almost timeless quality about them I would love to hear your story, after the person you are marrying, the photography is the next most important ingredient of the day. No one will work harder to ensure you get stunning images, so on this most special day which you may have spent years planning; don't you deserve the best ?

What is your most memorable wedding?

When I turned up one minute late and got a hug from the Bride who was in tears as the Hair and Make-up artist had rung an hour earlier to say she was ill and couldn't make it !! Becki was so relived, and together with her bridesmaids did it themselves and we got some wonderful photos of them all mucking in !!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Natural, creative, passionate, unobtrusive and unique !!

What about your business are you most proud of?

Every email, card or gift I've ever received from a couple gives me a buzz as does seeing your work being regularly featured in weddings magazines, especially when my children see my work on the front cover !!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Trust your gut instinct and do as much as you can to make it unique, its your wedding. Closely followed by choose a professional photographer (don't leave it to cousin Jonny with his DSLR) and make sure you have looked at a complete wedding to see it changes how the photographer captures the light as it changes throughout the day. Its one thing shooting on a cloudy day (easy) as opposed to strong overhead sun, or when its dark or blowing a gale.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

When couples write their own vows, so they say what they mean using their own words.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Every situation is unique as I've photographed weddings without ever meeting couples, through to several meetings with detailed timelines and lists of photos over one or two glasses of wine. Getting to meet beforehand creates understanding a developing a rapport and often couples often comment that they feel relaxed as when you think about it when was the last time anyone took a thousand plus photos of you on a single day !!

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

The time set aside just for them where they leave their wedding guests, catch their breath, and realise they've just done it. The relaxed nature of these moments means that they become themselves, relax and without question thats when the magic happens.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

A chainsaw shot which was real with cake flying everywhere - see gallery !!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Smiles, umberela's and embrace the weather !!

Describe how you got into photography.

Loved documenting my hill walks then when I became a Dad, perfecting my portraits quickly before the moments gone. Now I combine the two and capture beautiful environmental portraiture !!
