To help you understand a bit more about me and how I can bring artistry to your wedding photos, I have prepared a series of 9 short videos aimed at answering the questions I most often get asked by brides and grooms.

My clients say my wedding photography is elegant and beautiful. This is really important to me and I invite you to view my portfolios and hope that you feel the same. See the photo galleries.

" .. they really captured the atmosphere of the day."
" ... delighted to have found a photographer who takes such pride in his work."
Based in Royal Tunbridge Wells, I am available to photograph your wedding throughout the UK as well as overseas for destination weddings.
Kent, Sussex, Surrey and London are the counties in which I mostly work.
I specialise in creating contemporary, elegant and classical wedding pictures which ultimately will form your wedding day collection. This collection tells the story of your big day through pictures, and will be in a perfectly designed and beautifully presented wedding book.

I will not ask you to say cheese or perform strange poses, rather I will make sure you look natural, elegant, and at your very best.
I start with bridal preparations and continue through your wedding day until the evening dancing for the party shots.

My style can best be described as classical elegance meets documentary wedding photography. I love photographing weddings and relish the unique challenge and different approach that each wedding brings.

My aim is to create a truly stunning story book which you can come back to in years to come and get a sense of the emotion of the wedding day. I believe that wedding pictures are more than just a record of events that took place.

Your wedding pictures will be photographed and edited by myself in my signature style.

People often see my photographs and assume that my brides and grooms must be used to posing perfectly. But they’re not! My approach is to choose the right spot with the right background and lighting, set you in a basic position, and allow you to relax and be yourselves. This results in the magical combination of a beautiful pose with natural expressions. These photographs perfectly complement the documentary style photography from the rest of the day.

Consider booking an engagement shoot. This is a great way to experience my shooting style and to discover how easy it can be to look fantastic when directed using my tried and tested methods. See engagement shoots galleries and also latest engagement shoots
Wedding fairs can be a great way to meet a whole bunch of suppliers in person. You can quickly form your opinions on whether they are for you, more so than over the phone. You can often sample the product, whether it be delicious canapés from wedding caterers, to beautiful floral displays from the wedding florist or indeed wedding photography stunningly presented.
If you are looking for a wedding photographer I would be glad to meet you and talk about your ideas and plans. I will be at the following wedding fairs. I exhibit at about 8 fairs per year throughout Kent, Surrey and Sussex, and occasionally a London wedding venue.

Wedding photography can raise many questions – how long do you stay? How long do my wedding photographs take, what is documentary style, will you have an assistant or second photographer on my big day, even what will you wear on my wedding day? The wedding FAQs section has all the answers!

My clients have been kind enough to write to me and tell me what they think. Sometimes this comes in hand written form on thank you cards, sometimes an email and sometimes on a review site like Free Index, Google or my Google or Facebook pages. See what others are saying about me and my wedding photography. See feedback.
I am fortunate to have a number of features in both the national and local press. From cover photos to articles about me, to featured awards, this is the place that I feel proud of and I think you should see it too! In the press

So what’s it all about? Just when we all thought it was a fad, it seems the idea of vintage weddings is here to stay. Find out more in this honest article all about vintage weddings
Ultimately you will want to end up with a wedding book, and I design all of my book layouts giving you the preview before sending to production.
There are many options and you can choose paper type, lamination, page thickness, cover type, embossing, cases and more. Not to mention parent books, smaller copies and sets of tiny versions which make great gifts. Read more and see the wedding book options
Sometimes it’s useful to know what venues your photographer has worked at. This is a small selection of the wedding venues that I have photographed at throughout Kent, Sussex and Surrey. You may also be interested in what sort of look I achieve from each venue.

Pre wedding or Engagement photos shoot
Sometimes referred to as pre wedding shoots, these are excellent opportunities for engaged couples to mark their engagement period with a set of beautifully crafted images.

I always find that a further benefit is that we will get to know each other a little more and when your wedding day comes, you will already know my style of shooting and be more comfortable with having your photograph professionally taken.
