- I have been shooting weddings for many years and have been lucky enough to photograph weddings in the UK, Italy and Spain in a variety of beautiful locations. These include a small cave in Mijas Pueblo, a Spanish monastery, on board a catamaran in Puerto Banus, various luxury villas, the Ritz Carlton in Marbella, the Savoy in Florence, a vineyard in Tuscany and the Park Lane hotel in London as well as many beautiful, traditional churches in England. I put the same amount of effort into each wedding whether it is a wonderful, traditional English wedding or an occasion for the rich and famous. I organise your day in military fashion to ensure everything goes smoothly, with back up plans (for wet weather etc) and to keep a low profile while capturing all aspects of the day in a reportage, uninhibited way. I offer high resolution stills photography as well as video up to 4k (4 times the resolution of HD). I am also a qualified, licensed and insured UAV (drone) pilot so I can offer to film and photograph parts of your day from this unique perspective. Until you have seen a slideshow with stills, video and aerial footage included, you don't know what you are missing! I like to be as creative as possible for your day so the more information you can give me, the better. I was the fist person in the world (I believe) to put a slow motion video camera "in" the bride's bouquet when it was thrown. This gives a fun and unique view of this small part of the day and is well worth the effort to see the ladies fighting over the flowers in slow motion as it lands. I generally work alone but if you would like more extensive coverage with video and aerials, I use a highly skilled and talented assistant for the day to make sure the entire day is captured perfectly. All images are given on a stylish USB stick at high resolution for you to gift, share and print with no restrictions. Albums, photobooks, prints and canvas prints are also available. Have a happy, memorable wedding day!

What is your most memorable wedding?
My most memorable wedding has to be the 5 day Italian job. I was commissioned to shoot this wedding back in 2007 and was flown out especially. The ceremony was in the wonderful Sala Rossa in Florence (Google it) followed by drinks in the Savoy hotel and a meal at a lovely villa in Florence before we moved onto a stunning vineyard deep in the Tuscan countryside the next morning. Friday night was a low key affair in the vineyard grounds with drinks and canapes out by the swimming pool with Ray Quinn from the X Factor keeping the masses entertained. Saturday was the main event with another full on wedding ceremony followed by the evenings entertainment which was a full set by Girls Aloud who also came to the after show party and mingled with the guests. I shot so many images and luckily had taken my HD video camera so got to film all the main events and entertainment too!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Unobtrusive, creative, professional, passionate and meticulous.
What about your business are you most proud of?
My creativity. Once I know the itinerary for the day, I start to plan where I can be to get the best images and footage. I like to place small cameras in places I can't access to get some of the best imagery possible.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Once you have everything organised, simply wake up on your wedding day and enjoy it. You have hired professionals to do their job, let them do it and concentrate on getting married and having fun...after all, it is gone in a flash!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
It has to be the groom planning to have Girls Aloud flown out to Italy to sing for his bride without her knowing...amazing!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I like to organise an initial meeting to see if we get along before anything else : ) Then we can start to plan the day and work out what is required from both parties. A few months before the day, it is nice to arrange an engagement shoot to get us all used to each other in that type of environment with the cameras. Another meeting a week before the wedding (hopefully at the church rehearsal) to finalise everything and then prepare for the day itself. Once the day is done, I like to have everything ready within two weeks with a slideshow online during your honeymoon if possible. Then all images are given at high and low resolution for you to choose which you would like in your Photobook etc.
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Aerial group shot showing all guests and venue from the sky!
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
The consummation of the marriage...I declined (I think/hope they were joking)!
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Planning and preparation for just that event but keep smiling regardless, you can't plan the weather.
Describe how you got into photography.
Picked up my father's Olympus OM-1 in around 1979 and was hooked age 12. Took it as an option at school at 14 (when I built my own darkroom in the loft), did an apprenticeship at 16, worked in a camera shop at 17 whilst at college and ran my first business as part of that business course. Never looked back...
