Full Description
I really enjoy the vibe and atmosphere of a wedding. I’m not one to lurk in the wings, I like to get involved, chat to guests and generally immerse myself in the day. I find this helps me to get close up, relaxed images of people being themselves. Images that tell the story like I was genuinely in the mix, and not just as a stranger looking in. For 95% of your day I’ll be taking natural, informal photos of you and your guests. These are the images that everyone loves and the ones that really tell the story as it happened. Its really important to me that you feel happy and relaxed and I always adopt a fun, laid back approach. The other part of what I do involves using a whole range of light sources and techniques to get the best, most creative wedding photos possible. The sort of artistic wedding photography that you’ll want to hang on your wall. This can range from natural window light to multiple flashes. It means that whatever the weather or time of day I’ll be ready. I think it’s also important to mention a few other things that set me apart. - No limit on the number of group shots you can have, it's your day, your way. - All images in black and white and colour - Coverage as standard until 10 p.m and the option to extend till midnight. - Two basic packages with the option to add the extras that you actually want and need. - A very chilled. laid back photographer with a friendly, fun approach.

Book Pete.
I am very late posting this...Pete was an integral part of our October 2019 wedding. Chris and I aren't the most comfortable people in front of a camera and so we wanted our wedding photos to really focus on the guests and the day as it unfolded rather than being lots of stylised shots of the two of us. Pete captured the joy of the day both from our friends and family who were there, but also from Chris and I - both in some more formal posed shots, but also candid, in the moment ones. The weather was terrible and so we were doing the group shots inside. it was like herding cats as friends and family were a few glasses of fizz down by this point and very over excited - but Pete took it all in his stride and got plenty of beautiful ones which we adore. Every time we look at our photos is takes us back to what was the best, most fun day of our lives and captures all the laughs that everybody shared. Thank you, thank you Pete! Hannah and Chris x

Best wedding photographer EVER!
We bookend Pete after winning a competition he was running, and I am so glad we did! He is such a friendly guy, we both felt so comfortable with him and he made us feel at ease whilst taking the photos. He is so patient and understanding and really goes above and beyond to make sure your wedding photos are as amazing! Our pictures are everything we could have dreamed of and more and we are completely obsessed with them! If you’re looking for a fun and relaxed wedding photographer Pete is definitely the right guy for you! 😊

Peter is your man! well, your other man ☺️
Peters your man when it comes to wedding photographer! He was so much fun, unintrusive, professional, inventive, considerate and in short perfect. It was our youngest daughters wedding and we couldn’t be any happier with the images Peter caught of this lovely day.

The most amazing experience
Peter has been fantastic! He arrived to the cottage me and the bridesmaids were getting ready and straight away was chatting and made us feel relaxed (he even played sharades with my 7 year old neice )!! Originally I said to peter how’s nervous I was because I have no self confidence ... he posed us in natural ways and we had a laugh whilst doing so which made me feel so much better ! During the reception peter was so good at getting round and taking photos without being in peoples faces... loved it ! My whole family we’re so impressed with him especially at his organisation skills, he had the lists I made and called them out clearly and organised how we stand in such a calm yet professional manor! Thank you again for a amazing day!
