Your wedding photographs are how you’ll remember it for the rest of your lives, so I think they should tell the whole story from start to finish, with real, natural moments full of love and laughter.

- I’m there to help you create a memento that reminds you how it felt to be there for years and years to come, and whatever kind of wedding you’re planning I’ll take the same easy-going approach, fitting in around you to capture the heart and the soul of your whole day, just the way it happened. I can be with you from your morning preparations through to your first dance. I offer eight, ten, or twelve hours, and most couples feel safest with ten hours so you don't have to keep checking your watch. And for weddings booked for this year or next year I can offer a Monday to Thursday discount depending on your timings and location. When you get in touch via Bridebook I'll get back to you as soon as I can to arrange a good time for a quick chat on the phone, to find out a bit more about you and your plans so I can put together the perfect package for you. If you prefer email chats that's fine too!

What is your most memorable wedding?
The one where the Best Man let slip a few curse words in the speech, then apologised to all the children present, and the children shouted back "We don't mind! We like it!"...
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Natural, intimate, personal, unobstrusive, stylish
What about your business are you most proud of?
How happy I can make people with something I made for them, from the photos themselves through to the albums that I know they'll treasure for decades to come. The smiles on their faces mean SO much.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't overthink it! And make choices that mean something to you, not anyone else in your family... ;)
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Photos of the couple throughout their relationship together as 'name plates' at table settings.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
First we'll have a wee chat on the phone to get a few basic details, then we'll all meet up for a coffee (or something stronger) and really get to know each other, talk through the whole day, look at some albums together and work out what you'll need to get the most from your wedding photographs. Then we'll book it in! I'll put together a schedule of photography so we all know what's happening when, and all through the run-up to the big day I'll be on hand to answer questions. Then on the day, ideally you'll pretty much forget I'm there! Afterwards I'll spend a few weeks editing and processing, and when all the photos are ready you'll receive your very own private gallery and we'll start working on the design of your wedding album. You'll be able to make some tweaks until it's just right, and then it's sent off to be made by hand for you in Yorkshire.
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
I don't think there's any single photo every couple "should" take - as a documentary photographer I think the photos need to be about you and your party and the people around you, and those can be different every time!
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
An impromptu round of cricket right outside the church after the ceremony, with the bride bowling and the groom batting!
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Lots of white golf umbrellas, forgetting about the weather, and focussing on each other!
Describe how you got into photography.
I love photos of people carried away in a moment - whether they're working, or daydreaming, or laughing, or crying, or gazing at their lover with doe-eyes, those photos have so much in them to get lost in. I came to London to build a career in TV and became a camera operator on shows like Sunday Brunch and Mel & Sue, but I always enjoyed bringing a camera to take pictures behind the scenes of people at work and relaxing, unaware the camera was on them so they were being themselves. I love those candid style of photos so much that I started to turn my focus towards family celebrations and weddings. That gave me a way to spend my life creating something people love, AND make a living doing it. I couldn't ask for anything more!
