Choosing a wedding photographer is a big decision. You’re entrusting your most precious moments to me – asking me to capture them beautifully so you have memories that will last a lifetime. So, what can you expect?
My photography style
Well, I describe my wedding photography style as elegant, natural and honest. I aim to record the genuine moments of the day and to make you look amazing.
I want to make sure you feel completely at ease. Past clients have called me friendly and professional. That’s exactly what I aim to be. I know how uncomfortable some people feel in front of a camera – a sensation that often intensifies on their wedding day – so, from the moment we first meet to when I turn up at your wedding venue, I want you to feel completely comfortable with me – and, more importantly, in front of the lens.
I don’t want to create some big, staged set-up which makes you feel conspicuous or awkward. I just want to capture you enjoying the most important day of your life, together with your friends and family, in as natural a way as possible.
As for the types of wedding I photograph, these tend to be stylish but not overly glitzy – often held at the manor houses set in the countryside, away from the hustle and bustle. I have, for example, captured lots of weddings at South Downs Manor in West Sussex, for who I am a preferred photographer.
Your free, no-obligation consultation
After you have got in touch, I like to meet you in person to chat through my work and photography style. At that meeting, I’ll give you more detail about the way I work and what you can expect on the day so that you have everything you need in order to consider whether I am the right photographer for you.
I will show you, close up, examples of my photography. And you can view the beautiful fine art photo albums that I offer. These are included in my full-day wedding package prices so you will no doubt want to see and feel the quality of them for yourselves if you are opting for full-day wedding photography coverage.
I have meticulously sourced the very best quality albums so that you can be assured of world-class quality and durability. All are handmade in the UK, feature fine art flat lay pages and you have the choice of contemporary leather covers.
Extra ways that I help
Having captured lots of weddings in the past, I can help you with your schedule, ensuring your day runs smoothly and you can relax and enjoy it.
I meet with the venues beforehand and check out potential locations for the very best shots. I also check weather and light conditions so we always get the best photos at the right times of the day. The wedding day schedule, group photos and details are also all typed up and neatly presented to you in advance.
Other important things you’ll want to know
Photography is my full-time business so I am fully insured, as required, and I have a contract with the wedding couple to protect us both. It is all quite simple and, as past clients will testify, reassuring to know you are in safe, professional hands. I can guide you through all of this when we first meet.
My full day wedding photography packages start from £1450. I also have options to provide coverage for both shorter and longer days, plus extras if required. Anything from an elopement or short registry office wedding, to a stately home or big destination wedding overseas; just contact me with details, I'd love to hear about the plans for your wedding day, no matter how small or big.
I'm based in Hampshire on the south coast and work all over the UK. Travel is usually included unless it is such a distance that requires me to stay overnight. That is something we can work out when we go through your plans.
It would be great to meet you both and hear more about your big day. I am happy to come to your home or to a location nearby where we can comfortably talk over a coffee or a cuppa!
Rest assured, there is no obligation whatsoever to book (although of course, I hope that you will!). It is simply an opportunity for us to learn more about each other and for you to discover, in more detail, my unique style and how I’ll the story of your wedding day through breathtaking photography.

I look forward to meeting you soon.
