I really believe that every couple, and therefore every wedding I photograph is unique. Of course tradition plays a big part in the day, but the cookie cutter approach to wedding photography just isn’t for me! My philosophy, and that of documentary photography generally, is that it’s the interactions between you both and your guests and your choices about the day that will define your wedding and make it different to any other. I get such a great feeling knowing that I’m creating some of the most treasured pictures a couple will ever own. Pictures that can’t be staged or recreated but which capture the essence of your relationship and natural beauty. I love the honesty and subtleties of using natural light. My photography is all about capturing the real moments and emotions of your day, be it the nervous anticipation before the ceremony, the subtle little glances to one another as you read your vows, or the release of energy on the dance floor when you realise what an amazing day you’ve just had! So what’s it like to have me as your photographer? Well you certainly won’t see me shouting instructions at your family and friends as we stage lots of group photos! You might not even notice me at all. But if you do, you’ll probably see me moving quietly through the wedding, anticipating the action and capturing authentic images of the day. My friendly, calm and discreet approach gives couples the opportunity to really enjoy their special day the way it’s meant to be.

Congratulation on your engagement and upcoming wedding! Here's where the fun starts, or should that be, here's where you get overwhelmed by the choices you're now faced with. Either way, I'd love to hear about your plans so far and would love to explain a little more about how my photography might fit in.

Preferred Supplier List
What is your most memorable wedding?
I love all of them of course, but the ceremony on the platform at St Pancras Station stands out!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Natural, fun, authentic, timeless, unobtrusive
What about your business are you most proud of?
Trust and honesty are values that I feel are essential to my business (and my sanity!)
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
You will look your best when you forget the camera and have the time of your lives.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I love it whenever the bride gives a speech (no pressure ladies!)
Describe your typical process with a couple.
It's fundamental to my photography that my couples understand the way I work and that I can get to know them. In most cases I recommend a Skype chat before booking and then a venue visit nearer to the wedding.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
That's a difficult one for me to answer because I try to go into each wedding not with a shot list in my head, but open to what happens at that wedding, and is unique.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
Sadly the photo requests from family and friends on the wedding day aren't that original, but I was asked to make sure I got a picture of the cheese and ham quiche recently. It turned out to be their wedding cake!
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
It's easy to say, but don't let it affect you, we're in England after all right! But on a serious note, my photography is all about the connections between people, and that's unaffected by the weather. If you're worried then think carefully about your choice of venue and how your guests will cope with the rain.
Describe how you got into photography.
I picked up my grandfather's old camera when I was 16 and never really looked back.
