Full Description
My style is a blend of documentary wedding photography, formal photos and natural portrait photos. I want to photograph your wedding and tell a story, watching and waiting for moments to unfold, capturing the emotions of the ceremony. It’s your wedding day so the last thing you want is a bossy photographer messing up your day, that just isn't me. Why not contact me to arrange an informal meeting, where I can show you some more examples of my work, and we can discuss your wedding day photography requirements.

More than we could ever have wished for!
John has been amazing and we couldn't have wished for any more from a wedding photographer. We got married during lockdown and John helped us navigate ever changing rules and regulations. We chose to move the date of our wedding 5 days before the wedding was scheduled to ensure we didn't have to wear masks. John managed to move work comitments around to ensure he would be able to photograph our day and even stayed on late into the evening to capture a stunning sunset to top the evening off. I cant recommend John enough. He made us feel at ease in front of the camera, our family and friends found him easy to chat to and the photos speak for themselves-theyre stunning.

Absolutely delighted with the results
We hired John to do our photos for our wedding in September of last year. Originally we had the pre wedding shoot which, if being honest, we dreaded a little as we aren't great at having photos done. However, John put us at ease immediately and it certainly helped come the wedding day. John was professional, friendly and we have been absolutely delighted with the results. We both could not recommend John enough. Pete and Nikki xx

John was amazing
John was amazing from first contact until the end of the wedding. John made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and that showed in our photos. We had a pre wedding shoot with John which we thought was a lovely idea and meant we could get some beautiful photos before the special day. John went over and beyond on our wedding day and all our guests commented on how amazing John was. We cannot thank you enough and will defiantly be recommending you to all our friends and family! 5 *

we were incredibly glad
John was the photographer for our wedding on the 18th July 2018. Having originally looked for two photographers, we were incredibly glad we didn't get them and found John. He captured every shot before we even asked, the pictures were stunning and he made himself fully available to us and our guests at the drop of a hat. We never even knew about half the moments he captured and we loved every one of them. To top it all off, he made sure we got every photo from the day whether they were in his edited collection or not so we had literally everything. The nicest guy you'll ever meet, fun and made us feel totally at ease. We could not thank you enough John. Truly grateful for your contribution to the best day of our lives. Laura and Emily xxx
