Full Description
Hi, I’m Peter and I love to tell wedding stories My style is a mix of photojournalism and contemporary and fine art portraiture and before I became a professional full-time photographer I was an illustrator and graphic artist, which influenced my work as a wedding photographer. I have a trained eye and I seek out and capture the most important moments in an unobtrusive and candid way which will ensure a wonderful, captivating and natural telling of your wedding story is told. I have won awards and my work has been featured in regional and national magazines such as Bride, West Weddings and Guides For Brides and wedding venue websites and Brochures. I offer half or full-day packages, or alternatively I can create a bespoke package to fit your requirements. A pre-wedding photography shoot can be added to your package and a 20% discount is offered for weekday and winter weddings. I have a fabulous extensive range of high quality handmade albums and books and these are viewed during a consultation with me. To get a further idea of my portfolio, have a browse of my website and blog and if you like what you see, then get in touch to check my availability, it all begins here...

"He knew exactly what shots would be best"
Peter photographed our small COVID wedding this summer and did an incredible job. He knew exactly what shots would be best for the more posed photos but the best thing was he captured the day so well without people knowing. He caught people in the moment having a great time and laughing together which is so lovely to look back on. The couple portraits we have couldn't be better, the lighting is absolutely incredible and we are so pleased with them. Peter was great in the lead up especially with all of the uncertainty and was very quick to respond to any queries which always put our mind at ease. We've received so many lovely comments with the photos, really highly recommend Peter.

They are amazing!
Received our photos last month from our wedding in August. They are amazing! We had so much great feedback and he captured everything we wanted at our wedding and really told a story throughout the day. He made us feel relaxed on the day and can certainly tell he has a passion for photography. We would definitely recommend him! Thank you Peter.

FAQ

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Natural, artistic, documentary, fine art, unobtrusive.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Being able to appeal to a broad range of couples.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Plan to enjoy yourself and relax as much as possible on the day. Choose the photographer that you feel instinctively would be right for you and take the time to look closely at their portfolio, it's important to look at lots of photos from real weddings and not just the 'wow' images you see in website galleries.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Rain can look really romantic in photos and there are many ways to use it in a creative way. We'll grab a few brollies and venture out capturing rain sharply with you out of focus and with you in focus with the rain as orbs. Shots also with you both in silhouette in a door or archway with the rain coming down behind you can be stunning or looking through a window from the outside of you both inside in shadow or lit by a soft lamp. These are just a few ways to use the great British weather imaginatively.

Describe how you got into photography.

I was an illustrator and graphic artist for a few years before I became a professional photographer and this was natural progression to capturing and creating images through a camera lens.
