The Whole Story

A photographic narrative of your wedding day.

I love natural, honest photography. I love real moments and real expressions. I seem to have an instinct for expressing the relationships and connections between families and friends.  One of my favourite parts of a wedding day is after the ceremony where everyone hugs and kisses you. I love the pride in your grandad’s face as he holds your hand and wishes you well. I love the joy on your faces as you walk down the aisle together. I love the bit where your dad sees you in your dress for the very first time. I love how your faces look as your friends shower you in confetti.  I love how even after you’ve just got married you’ll still sort his tie out! I love every little nuance and expression. You can’t pose those moments.

I’m observant and discreet and I have an intuitive eye for details as well as for emotion. You’ll hardly notice me.  Even when I’m photographing the two of you after your ceremony, away from your family and friends you’ll hardly be aware of me. It’s a lovely few minutes to catch your breath and have some alone time and some couple photographs taken.

I also include some group shots of families, bridesmaids and groomsmen. I try to keep these to a minimum so it only takes ten or fifteen minutes and you can spend your day celebrating with family and friends rather than posing for photographs for hours.

From the details of your wedding gown to a quiet glance, I’ll tell your story with the most beautiful, evocative pictures you’ll ever have.

I’m a trainer at Aspire Photography Training and present masterclasses on wedding photography at Europe’s largest photography convention, the SWPP.

I’ve also been voted amongst the top ten wedding photographers in the UK which was immensely flattering and made my mum proud! Digital Photographer recently featured my work as one of the most sought after wedding photographers in the UK and the editor of Bride Magazine has booked me to photograph her own wedding next year.

Please use the contact page or drop me an email for a brochure with more information on coverage options, a full price guide and details of our beautiful Queensberry wedding albums.  I live in Cartmel Fell in the Lake District and mainly photograph weddings in the Lake District, Lancashire and Cheshire however I am more than happy to travel further afield. Last year I photographed weddings in Kenya, Italy and Portugal so if yours is a destination wedding please get in touch for more information.
