Wedding Photography

Stories engage you, embrace you, make you feel joyous and tearful. They are not told in one line but instead through a series of well written chapters. Likewise, your wedding album is a classic book, capturing many details and unique moments that come together to tell your unique wedding day through pictures.

Like great writers, great photographers love what they do and I am passionate about my role.

My focus is always to take bright and colourful photos filled with natural emotions of happiness and fun, while letting you and your guests enjoy the day as much as possible.

2018 is my 10th Year of photographing weddings and I am always honoured when a couple choose me to photograph their day. I enjoy helping each one to have the best day possible, both in the planning stages where I can advise based on my experiences, and on the day through helping to keep it run smoothly, while always wishing to go above and beyond.

I am proud to be a qualified Licentiate Member of the Society of Wedding Photographers and to have reached the Regional Finals of the Wedding Industry Awards in 2016 2017 & 2018!

Equally, it is heart warming to have received so many kind words from now married couples and a selection of these can be found on the ‘Reviews’ section of my Facebook page.

I am delighted to be a recommended Wedding Photographer at the following venues and offer a discount for couples getting wed at these: Brookfield Barn, Hendall Manor Barns, Heaven Farm, Pangdean Old Barn, Plumpton Racecourse, Wakehurst PlacePatricks Barn at ChiddinglyeFour Oaks Farm, Laughton BarnsBroadacres and Bluebell Vineyard.
