My guess is, in your search for a wedding photographer, you’re looking for someone special. If you want a documentary style snapper to capture all the chaos and good times, who’s honest and fuss-free, then welcome to my humble little corner of the internet.

Wanna come on in?

Take off your shoes, the carpet’s new.


Based in glorious Gloucestershire.

In the heart of the even more glorious Cotswolds..

I travel all over the UK (and beyond) capturing wedding celebrations in my light-hearted, photojournalistic way.

You may have twigged that wedding photographers like to toss around terms like “documentary”, “photojournalism” and “reportage” a fair bit.  I wouldn’t be at all surprised if, on reading these temptingly cool words, you’ve clicked through to the occasional gallery only to be greeted with a riot of staged and posed images that make your toes curl. A veritable orgy of “fun jumping ones” or nervy-looking brides being held unsteadily aloft by gurning groomsmen. Look, that’s fine. I’m not here to judge. To each their own. Who am I to say that one style of photography is superior to another? But true docu-style photojournalism it isn’t.

Without sounding like a raging cliche, let’s keep it real folks.  

Photojournalism is about natural images that tell a story. A real story. The one that happens as it happens. It’s about focussing on the emotions and energy of the day, without staging anything, posing anyone, setting up moments or shouting a word of direction except when absolutely necessary.
