Full Description
Hello, I’m Simon & I’ve been photographing weddings for the last 7 years. I didn't grow up as a photographer; I always thought I'd be a rock star or writer or make movies or something. But at some point I started documenting life with a camera. Looking back, I wouldn't change a thing. I love photographing weddings because they’re a microcosm of life. All these relationships & stories coming together on the day. The celebration of life and love. But I don’t want your day to be about the photographer. It shouldn’t be a endless photoshoot of set-up shots. I believe your wedding should be about you and your love and your family & friends. So I’d like to keep myself in the background, documenting those things.

What is your most memorable wedding?

I had a beautiful Tipi festival wedding, which had a very Glastonbury feel to it a couple of years back. I think I would have paid the couple to let me shoot it (don't tell them that though). Also Don't Tell the Bride for BBC3 - but for very different reasons.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Honest, Real, Raw, Emotional, Unposed

What about your business are you most proud of?

Getting shortlisted for the wedding industry awards and winning a Wedding Photographer of the Year award from The Guild of Photographers

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

Decide on the top 3 things that are important to you on your day - and make them really happen!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

I always love a good live band.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

We meet, we get along. I get to know them better. I turn up on the day and take photos that I think will rock their world.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

Being someone who always makes it up on the day and aims for spontaneous and authentic imagery...... I don't really believe there is one. Every wedding is unique, and the photography is the best way to capture that- It shouldn't be formulaic.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

^^ See above.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Surrounding yourself with people you love and having a good time.

Describe how you got into photography.

I didn't grow up as a photographer; I always thought I'd be a rock star or writer or make movies or something. But at some point I started documenting life with a camera
