Information & Pricing


I’m based in the North West of England, quite close to Manchester. However, I regularly travel across the UK & the world for weddings.

I’ve met some fantastic wedding suppliers along the way too.

If you’re having fun..

..you’re looking good!

Love and happiness should ooze from you and your guests, and into your wedding photographs.

So … let’s enjoy ourselves! We can laugh and joke, banter a bit, discuss your day and keep the smiles happy and real.

Quality Matters

This defines so much about me and my wedding photography. I aspire to the well known phrase “If a job is worth doing, it’s worth doing properly”.

So, with me, the love and care you would expect will come through in all elements of your wedding photography.

Approach

I love photos which show the excitement of the day, and your fun sides in front of the camera.

Throughout the day I might “steal” the two of you several times to take photographs in different light, positions and situations so you receive the most incredible set of imagery for your wedding.

Photographic delivery

400+ images will be hand-edited using my modern, flattering filmic style. They are in high resolution and watermark free, so you can share and print as you like.

In addition, you may also choose a beautiful bespoke designed and built wedding album.

Frequently Asked Questions


You’re probably new to this, so it stands to reason you’ll have a lot of questions and concerns. I’ve listed some of the more popular ones questions and answers here.

My style for most of the day is documentary. However, for the couple photographs, my fashion background helps to produce a mood which is beautiful and vibrant.

On the day I’m friendly and chatty, which helps to relax people around me.

I travel throughout the UK and to all destinations abroad to join you for your wedding.

All couples receive 400+ un-watermarked, high resolution photographs to print and share.

In addition, you may also choose a beautiful bespoke designed and built wedding album.

Nothing that would restrict you.

You may do anything you like except sell them – which let’s face it, would be a bit weird!

Typically a full day wedding is around 10 or 11 hours, but more is available if necessary.

I like to arrive 2-3 hours before the ceremony and usually leave around half an hour after the first dance. I never leave until I’ve asked if there’s anything more you need.

My style has been developed from both my fashion background. That produces a style which has a focus that’s different to others in the market.

Incredibly rigorous!

My camera has two cards in it and the photos are written to both on the day. When I’m home, the photos are copied to two hard disks as well as offsite into the Cloud. Finally, I keep one of the original memory cards in a fire safe box.

Yes, typically there are around 6 to 8 and they take around 20 to 25 minutes.

Most definitely!

You’ve spent a lot of time on deciding on these. Typically I would photograph the shoes, dress and flowers, and the venue and table details, wedding cake .. and anything else which I see.

I have a fantastic network of local photographers who would be able to take over the wedding for me .. but I’d have to be really really ill to not attend your wedding.

It’s been over a decade now so I suspect it’s between 200 and 250 weddings.

Flattering, bright and airy would describe it best.

Yes, I come to every wedding with at least two of everything.

I have a bag full of lenses, a couple of camera, multiple flashes, plenty of batteries and way too many memory cards.

For nearly all of my weddings I prefer to work alone.

You choose me because of my photographic eye and after so many years of honing it, I can’t find anyone who can replicate that. However, if you need a second photographer, it is usually possible to organise.

Yes, I’m fully insured, as are any others who I bring to your wedding.

I can provide a copy of my insurance certificate if needed by your venue and I can also increase my public liability cover of £2m if necessary for any particular wedding.

I may have, but it doesn’t matter if I haven’t.

I work at a many new venues every year and know how to get the best from each as I turn up.

Destination weddings are more complicated, but I make it very simple for you.

I usually fly in 2 days before to ensure there’s still time for new plans if there are flight changes. I try to stay close to the wedding venue where possible.

Before the wedding I usually meet you at the venue to look round and discuss the day.

After the wedding, I’ll fly home and process your photographs as normal.

I have the simplest process.

You fill in a quick form and pay the retainer invoice that’s sent to you, usually online using a card. And then you’re done!

If I’ve not answered your question, send me a quick message or give me a ring.

It will be lovely to hear from you and I’ll be happy to answer any other questions you have.
