- I have been photographing weddings for over 15 years.I feel I have the natural ability to capture the essence of any wedding and this is evident in the images I take. I have a fresh, innovative, unique style and an approachable, friendly, non-invasive manner. I photograph weddings throughout the UK and do not charge for any travel costs. I am passionate about the images I capture on the day; as an award-winning photographer, I am recognised as having a superb eye for detail and an ability to capture only the most exceptional and poignant moments, clearly defining the mood and energy of the day. Most people book me to capture the complete wedding, but you choose when you want your photography to start. I offer Wedding USB's containing all the images from your day and a complete set in black and white free of charge. I also offer both album and Wedding USB's and you can view these on my website

What is your most memorable wedding?
I captured a wedding for a couple who live in Mauritius but cam back to the UK to have their wedding. It was held at Hambleton Hall in Oakham. I recall the champagne flowing from dusk till dawn! What remember most was the brides reaction when she viewed her album. It brought tears of joy and she gave me a big hug. A wedding I will always remember.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
beautiful, modern, documentary,friendly, non-invasive
What about your business are you most proud of?
How much I put into capturing a couples day and the amount of images I give them.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Champagne....Give you guests good bubbles!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Father of the bride walking his daughter down the aisle and refusing to do it in his wheel chair
Describe your typical process with a couple.
After a couple decide to book me to capture their day I ask them to compile a list of group shots. I ask them what they like and do not like. I get to know what must have photographs they want. We speak or meet up before the wedding day and walk through the day. Its a great way too of getting to know each other.
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Confetti shot....Confetti supplied by the bride and groom (not many people bring their own) and given to everybody to throw. Its a great shot after the service.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
A pair of Nike trainers worn by the groom and the brides leopard skin high heels pictured together! It did make a great shot and memory.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Well I always bring with me studio style flash just in case it does rain and we have to stay in doors. It gives everybody a nice glow.
Describe how you got into photography.
In 2000 whilst studying photography I was asked to photograph a wedding. They loved the images I did for them and that was it.
