Documentary Wedding Photographer



I believe that wedding photos should tell the whole story of your day, so from the nerves and excitement of the bridal preparations until you're letting your hair down with your first dance, I can be there. My photography style is relaxed and unobtrusive, capturing all of the little moments that you might miss. For most of the day you won't even realise I'm there, as I capture the fun as it unfolds around me. I like to be a little window of calm in what can be a hectic and sometimes overwhelming day for you. After over 100 weddings and many more family photoshoots I feel like nothing can surprise me (that's not a challenge!). I feel totally at home reacting to the chaos of wedding days: changing weather, wardrobe malfunctions, flower girl tantrums, dark churches, time constraints, power cuts and more. And always with a smile.

Receiving thank you notes like this, from a recent bride, makes me realise just what a joy and a privilege it is to be a part of these amazing, unique wedding days:

" There are no words to describe how fabulous your work is. We
absolutely love the pictures and the special moments you captured,
you have provided us with the most beautiful images of the fastest
day of our lives - finally now we can begin to fill in the blanks!

We've looked through your photos over and over again - cried and
laughed and cried and laughed again. Really took my breath away "
