Full Description
When photographing your wedding I aim to tell the unique story of your day, capturing the natural spontaneous moments that you will look back at and treasure forever. I have a documentary style taking candid shots and working in an unobtrusive way (not the barking orders type). I work mostly with natural light and take care not to alter the ambiance you have worked so hard to create for your wedding. I am friendly, outgoing, have a good sense of humour and strive to make you and your guests feel comfortable with being in front of the camera.

Wotton House Wedding
We had our wedding on 29th Feb 2020, just before coronavirus really began to impact the UK and other countries, so luckily we managed to have our wedding with all of our guests. Tom was our photographer. He was communicative and we met up to discuss what our plan was for the day. We had a few touch points before the wedding including an unexpected one when we had to change venues at short notice! Our first venue had to close to remove a pipe but luckily we were able to find another venue on the same day. Tom was accommodating and visited the new venue to check out good spots for photographs at no charge. In his reconnaissance he was very thorough and found hidden locations that we didn’t know about. On the day he took some great shots (he has created an online gallery for us) so we can view all the photos. There were lots of great options for couple shots and we managed to do most of them during the reception drinks. He created some fun and artistic shots. He wasn’t obtrusive but still managed to capture our day and all of its moments. Tom is a friendly, relaxed, professional guy who we’d really recommend to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. Also at a reasonable price with none of these ‘that’s not included in that package’ statements you might be used to hearing! He knows that each day is special and unique.

We can’t praise Tom enough
We can’t recommend Tom enough! Tom is an incredibly talented and creative photographer, who was able to capture so many special moments throughout the day. He has delivered so many beautifully candid shots, our album really is like a story book and we get to relive our wedding each time we look through the photos. Tom provided exceptional customer service from the get go - he was always quick to answer any questions and kept in touch with us during the lead up to our wedding. On the day he put us both at ease with his friendly & easy going nature, it actually felt like we’d known Tom for ages! He knew exactly which shots were important for us and he really got the best photos of everyone we love. He delivered our photos so incredibly quickly and was also happy to help with any extra requests we’ve had. We can’t praise Tom enough - if you’re looking for a photographer, don’t hesitate to book Tom, you won’t regret it!

Toms service was second to none
We chose Tom, after finding him in one of the many wedding magazines we received, he stuck out straight away. Toms service was second to none, meeting us at our local coffee shop to show us his previous work and to make us feel at ease on our big day. Tom took time out of his own schedule to perform a engagement shoot at our wedding venue to allow me and my wife to feel relaxed and to allow us to be able to get on with everything on the big day whilst not having to worry about the photos as Tom had everything in hand. Tom fulfilled our wishes above and beyond, helping us capture moments we would never had dreamt of. Tom was so easy going, it never really felt like he was there but still capturing over one thousand shots that are all incredible quality and gives us a great album to look through to keep the memories fresh in our minds. Tom also bought his brilliant assistant with him, to help get some candid shots, to be in two places at once and to give us some photos with different aspects. Thank you Tom, myself and Poppy cannot recommend you enough.

Tom provided a personal, tailored service
Tom took the photos at our wedding last year and we're so pleased that he could. We regularly look back over the photos. Tom really captured the essence of our day and they always bring back such happy memories. Tom was able to capture everyone in such a natural way. Tom provided a personal, tailored service from start to finish. Fantastic guy, amazing photos, thank you!

He was a welcome guest rather than photographer
We chose Tom for our wedding after he did an engagement photoshoot for us and we loved the result. He is so easy to get on with and has a great eye for capturing the perfect photo. We had so many comments from guests about how nice he was and how he seemed to just enjoy being part of the day. We asked for a mix of couple shots, posed groups and lots of candid shots to capture the essence of the day. The final result was fantastic, Tom truly delivered everything we wanted and more. We have been to several weddings where the photographers were intrusive or rather bossy, Tom was neither, he spent the whole day with us, from getting ready right through to the evening reception, and his sense of humour and personable manner made him feel like a welcome guest rather than photographer. We would highly recommend Tom as a photographer, he really helped create some beautiful permanent memories of our 'RMarkable' Day.

Our photos are absolutely beautiful
Tom made our day so special. He made us feel so relaxed, I even forgot he was in the room with my bridal party in the morning! Our photos are absolutely beautiful and we are so grateful for all the love and support Tom gave us before, during and after the wedding. We 100% would recommend Tom to be your photographer! 😊 Thank you so much Tom! X

What is your most memorable wedding?

I adore visiting the huge stunning venues full of history and detail. But my most memorable wedding was held at the couple's local pub! It was a beautiful sunny day so they enjoyed live music, afternoon tea and even their wedding speeches in the pub garden. The couple are big sci-fi fans and had chosen a Star Wars themed wedding cake. I just had to add a light saber when editing their 'cutting the cake' photos!

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

While planning your big day, don't forget to enjoy it! Think about what interests you as a couple and bring those details into your wedding day to make it unique to you.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I meet all couples to chat about your wedding and the photography style you like. This also gives you the opportunity to look through some albums and prints of my photos. Before your wedding day, I will visit your venue to scope out some interesting and unique shots for you. I always arrive early on the big day to get some detail shots before your guests start arriving. I capture your day in a documentary style and stay for your evening guest arrivals, first dance and a few dance floor shots too. After editing your photos, I deliver them on a USB stick within 4 - 6 weeks. Those photos are yours to use as you wish. I can create albums and arrange prints for you if that's something you are interested in too.

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

Everyone needs a shoe shot!!

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

That's got to be one of my brides throwing an axe at her new husband ... don't ask!!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Embrace the rain! I always have an umbrella in the car on standby , so we can catch a great rain shot. This is Britain after all!

Describe how you got into photography.

I have always been into photography, taking photos since I was a child. When I started I was using actual film and I learned to develop in a makeshift dark room in the family bathroom. I believe that learning the rudiments of photography using film has given me a good understanding of the art form. I married my wife in 2014 and was inspired to get into professional photography by our own wedding photographer!
