Wedding Shoots

Wedding Photography with a difference...

I don’t want to give you the same ‘traditional’ photos that everyone else has, nor would you get the same photos that I’ve taken for other couples. I want to tell your story and give you really cool photographs that will take you straight back to what was happening and how you were feeling at that very instant.

“Bonkers” is what I’ve been called by some of my couples. Who wants to be ‘normal’, the same as everyone else? I don’t do normal.  I do unique. It’s not a photoshoot, it’s your story. Life is beautifully unpredictable, so you can expect the unexpected! There are no rules! You might call it documentary or reportage photography, you wouldn’t call it formal.

Wedding Shoots


I love observing people and taking pictures that really nail personalities and characters, showing real people being relaxed and natural.  I prefer to avoid “wedding faces” and awkward poses, clichés and cheese.  And there’ll definitely be NO RULES! Imagination and creativity are everything and I like injecting a little mischief, having fun and going with the flow. I believe it’s all about spontaneity, fun and trust. I capture the characters in your story; the excitement; the fabulous chaos (maybe!); the natural laughter and joy (and tears); and the tender, intimate moments that will effortlessly punctuate your day. 

I’ve travelled throughout the UK taking wedding photographs in all sorts of unusual locations. I’ve had Brides on display in shop windows, the groom and his entourage on skateboards, guests splashing through puddles and couples falling off space-hoppers. And I’ve ended up taking shots from some strange positions; up trees and in (yes, actually in) rivers and lakes - I’ve even taken pictures sitting on the loo (me, not them), just to get that perfect shot…

But I won’t push too hard, I want you to be at ease and you don’t want a difficult wedding photographer! I’ll do what you ask of me without intrusions or distractions but I’m happy to offer suggestions based on my experience. But for most of the time you and your guests won’t even know I’m there.
