My first wedding was photographed back in 2004. Since then I have had the privilege of photographing over 500 weddings. I can honestly remember each and every one of them! I have covered an amazing variety of weddings, varying from idyllic lakesides, to teepees and stately homes, and come across all types of weather from torrential downpours, to two feet of snow and even the rare UK heatwave! I’ve photographed grand stately home weddings with 400 guests, Indian weddings over 3 days, intimate elopements with just 2 guests, and every conceivable type of wedding in between!

I live in a small village sandwiched between the stunning Clumber Park, Sherwood Pines and Sherwood Forest areas of Nottinghamshire. I photograph weddings throughout Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, right across the UK and destination weddings throughout Europe.

Unfortunately, a date can only be secured with a non-refundable retainer. This ensures that I will not undertake any other work on your day, and decline any other enquiries. I often get 4 or 5 enquiries for specific dates across the year.

I take great care in both taking the photographs of my clients through to the editing stage. Each and every photograph is edited, rather than sending them all through an automated batch process. My style is very natural, with only colour hues and contrast levels changed to highlight the mood of the day.  The only ‘photoshopping’ that occurs in my photographs is the removal of stray hairs, complexion issues etc..

Unfortunately not, I solely photograph. Please get in touch if you’d like me to recommend some very talented wedding videographers

All of your photographs will be viewable on a secure password-protected website. Portrait galleries are ordinarily ready within 2 weeks, and wedding galleries 5 weeks. Your website will also include a secure shopping cart service that caters for fine art prints. You will receive a pincode* to download your wedding or portrait photographs as soon as your gallery goes live. (*pincode supplied with packages which include all digital photographs)

Approximately 700-1000 photos will be provided from a typical 10-hour wedding photography coverage. You will receive approximately 50-100 photographs from a portrait or engagement pre-wedding photoshoot. The amount of photographs covered during a wedding varies from wedding to wedding. The number of hours covered, number of guests, and amount of group shots required will all affect this.

I have full professional indemnity and public liability insurance. I don’t offer discounts specifically, however, reduced-hour wedding photography is available at a lower cost during mid-week, and on non-peak dates. Please see my pricing page for more details.

As little as possible! Group photographs take approximately 15 minutes. I’m sure you’d much rather spend your precious time with your family and friends than be told to stand and fake smile for 2 hours (this has happened at weddings where I have been a guest over the years – and was the main reason why I was initially reluctant to photograph weddings!) In the evening, when the sun is setting, I will take the two of you away to capture beautiful natural photographs for around 20 minutes. Your guests will be happily mingling, and you won’t have the worry of people watching you. It’ll be fun and relaxed – I’ll place you in the best possible light, and just observe and record the emotion and love between the two of you

In over 19 years and 550 weddings, I have NEVER missed a wedding. I would have to be hospitalised for this to ever happen. If this unfortunate circumstance should ever happen, I would employ somebody of an equal skill level and style to myself to photograph your big day.

Engagement photo shoots offer you a great understanding of the relaxed way that I approach photography. I can help to allay any fears that you may have about being photographed on your big day, and also gives you tips of how to ‘pose’ naturally. You will hopefully come away having really enjoyed the photoshoot, and instead of potentially dreading being photographed on your wedding day, you will actually look forward to it! Please get in touch if you would like to book a photoshoot.

I use Folio Albums from the UK and GraphiStudio Albums from Italy. All of the albums are beautiful fine art albums and all are handmade. Prices start at £395 for a 20-page 10″x10″ album.
