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 and 2017!

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.

Your Collection

Your wedding day is unique to your partner and yourself. As such, I like to offer a collection that has a comprehensive selection of outcomes.

Your Collection includes:

~ My devoted attention as I photographing your wedding, creating a story of that reflects yourselves, your guests and the venue so you can relive your big day.

~ All of your photos edited and provided on a glass USB, which comes presented in a personalised luxury box.

~A ‘Sneak Peek’ gallery of 120 images from your day. Edited within 48 hours of your wedding, this portfolio of images allows you to relive your wedding while on honeymooon.

~ A set of fifty quality thank you cards featuring a photo from your wedding on the front. Additional cards are available at £1.20 each.

~ A Highlights Reel video blending your photos and some video clips, so you can easily watch your wedding day back on your TV.

~ An online gallery so friends & family can view your photos and purchase their own professional quality print copies.

Your Collection, from the morning preparations through until the first dance, is £1200. There is then the option of me staying late into the evening to document more of the celebrations and night time couple photos. This is an additional £300. Shorter documentations for weekday weddings are available upon request.

In addition, I can offer you luxury wedding albums (click here for more information on albums), a second photographer, additional mounted and framed prints and a signing board.

I only have availability for only two more bookings for weddings in 2018. My diary for 2019 is already 50% booked up, so please do get in touch if you would like to book me!
