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

Below are just a handful of wedding photography projects I have taken throughout the year.
Peckforton Castle History
In 1840 John Tollemache bought the land that would soon become Peckforton Castle. 36,000 acres of sprawling green Cheshire countryside.
Tollemache dreamt up a palatial fortified home in the style of a medieval castle, and so began work in 1942. With the sheer size and magnitude of the work, it wasn’t completed until 1851.
Fast-forward to 2001, its history was blended with modern times and was one of the government’s first venues to be licensed for civil ceremonies held beyond the traditional registry office.
Over the past few years, Peckforton Castles stunning vistas have proven popular as a filming location for the likes of robin hood, sherlock holmes, and doctor who.
