Wedding Photography FAQs

I solely focus on wedding photography. The reason for this is because I want to have all the answers for when things dont go right, and also that each and every thought I have when I hold my camera is wedding specific.

90% of my wedding photographs are natural, the rest are formal group photos as well as bride and groom photography. I focus on capturing the natural and beautiful reactions that happen throughout the wedding day.

Bride and grooms tend to hate posing for the camera – however, my bride and groom photos ensure that posing is very, very simple and easy. Check out my wedding portfolio for examples!

I think the way I interact with people and that I dont go heavy on posing are the reasons why I fill my diary two years in advance for weddings

All your wedding photography will be made available to download through a password-protected link for you to view and download as often as you wish.

The gallery has the ability to professionally print your photos, at extra cost.

I arrive 90minutes before the ceremony to begin capturing the bride getting ready, or groom if preferred.

I capture the whole day as it unfolds and finish just after the first dance.

My job, without a doubt, is to capture your wedding day in stunning photographs. I shoot in a unique, fun, and approachable way. Bride and Groom photos take around 20 minutes. I am a big believer in getting around 10 amazing photographs of you and then letting you get back to enjoy your wedding party. I will not take you away for longer than needed. The posing will be very light and easy. The last thing I want is for couples to feel awkward

Shooting from a distance when needed, but also getting into the mix of things where appropriate. It is this approach that has made me not only award-winning but highly sought after. Shooting 50+ weddings a year.

On occasion, brides will fly me to their weddings overseas!

I am pleased to be able to offer a lighter more budget friendly highlights video. We use all the latest and discreet technology, mixed in with my experience to capture a fly on the wall highlights video. I don’t shoot the video, it is done by a member of my staff who has worked with me for 2 years now. Don’t worry, its not cringey, its all shot at the same time as me meaning it has zero impact on the timings of the day.

I only require a £200 booking fee and the full balance 2 calendar months before the big day. The booking fee covers set up costs and is non-refundable

I would travel anywhere – From Cornwall and North Wales to Northumberland and the Lake District – no where is too far! I also travel across Europe for weddings

Extra charges may apply.

I am the recommended wedding photographer at some of the highest-rated wedding venues in England. Some of these include Dimple Well LodgeWaterton Park HotelOulton Hall, and Peckforton Castle to name just a few.

Yorkshire also offers amazing wedding venues such as Priory Cottages

I am fully insured – in fact most venues ask for proof of insurance before allowing me to step in the building!

Oulton Hall History

Oulton Hall near Leeds, West Yorkshire is a fantastic choice of wedding venue should you be looking for an 18th-century Georgian mansion.

The wedding planners at Oulton Hall are hugely experienced in organising and planning your perfect wedding day. Oulton Hall offers fantastic opportunities for the wedding photographer to capture wedding photos both indoors and outdoors.

In 1925, the hall and grounds were sold by the owners to the county council. It was used as a hospital for psychiatric patients until 1971. Oulton Hall then changed hands, but due to the lack of resources of the new owner it fell into disrepair, and in 1974 it was derelict. In 1991 De Vere Hotels acquired the lease and rescued it. Restoration and expansion cost £20 million at the time to turn the hall into a hotel set in an estate of 300 acres.

A Grade II listed mansion that operates as a hotel and also a 27 hole golf course – perfect for the groom and guests to stay entertained on.

Oulton Hall truly is one of my favourite wedding venues for wedding photography. I feel so lucky to be a part of the wedding family there. You will see me at all the wedding open days there where we can talk about everything wedding and also a great chance for you to browse the wedding photographs I have created at Oulton Hall.
