Hertfordshire, UK and Mallorca wedding photographer

 Timeless, natural and creative documentary wedding photography

My passion is to tell your story with images that capture the emotion, happiness and fun of your wedding day in a relaxed and unobtrusive way

 

 

 

I love to photograph people and I especially love to photograph weddings – there’s nothing quite like it.  I can’t help but get caught up in the excitement, the emotion, and the happiness and significance of the day.  I can’t think of a better place to do a day’s ‘work’, surrounded by happy people sharing so many memorable and intimate moments together.

Although I’m a Hertfordshire-based wedding photographer living in Rickmansworth I am happy to photograph weddings in Berkshire, Middlesex, Surrey, Buckinghamshire and further afield in the UK.  Distance isn’t really a barrier.  Over the last few years I have been privileged to photograph some amazing weddings on the beautiful island of Mallorca so if you are looking for a Mallorca wedding photographer then I’d love to hear from you!

There is so much to planning a wedding from choosing the wedding dress for you and the bridesmaids, the venue, the flowers and so many other things that are special to you.  Even deciding which friends and family to invite to share your wedding day can be difficult as you work within your budget.  As a wedding photographer you would also expect me to also stress the importance of finding the right photographer, for you!  Yes, that’s true.  My advice is to take the time to find a wedding photographer who you will enjoy having around for the day, who will deliver the quality and style of photography that you love, who will blend in to your wedding party and be friendly with your guests and who you can trust to deliver the quality and consistency of photography.  Most importantly, find a wedding photographer who will make you smile, feel emotional and maybe make you cry when you first look at your wedding photos, and when you reminisce in ten years time!

My style as a documentary wedding photographer is to work in a friendly and unobtrusive way but with passion and creativity to ensure I do everything I can to produce a timeless story that you and future generations will treasure.  I would love to be considered as your documentary wedding photographer to capture your special and unrepeatable moments – the glances, the touches, the happiness, the fun and the smiles you share, and maybe even the occasional tear!

If you like what you see, or just want to know more, then just drop me a line using the contact form and I’ll get right back to you and send you my latest wedding photography brochure to browse through.  In the meantime, you may find some of the answers to your queries amongst the Frequently Asked Questions and Pricing pages.  I look forward to hearing from you!

London engagement photoshoot in St Dunstan-in-the-East

 

There are few things more fun for a wedding photographer than to have the opportunity to do a London engagement photoshoot.  There’s just so much variety at every twist and turn and I particular love the challenge of visiting areas that I don’t know particularly well as it’s both inspiring and challenging.

I have to say that this was a rather special engagement photoshoot for me for another reason.  I’ve known Paula all her life.  She is both talented and beautiful and I sometimes think that she is one of the reasons that I’m a professional wedding photographer today.  Many years ago she asked me if I would spend some time photographing her for her portfolio and I have no doubt that this experience gave me the confidence to take my portrait photography to another level.

After hearing so much about her fiancé it was with great excitement that we finally met Oliver and Paula on an overcast Sunday afternoon to hear more about their wedding plans over lunch.  As they live and work in the area they guided us through the London backstreets from Aldgate and on to the curiously named 16th century church of St Andrew Undershaft with the Gherkin lurking ominously behind it under a rather threatening sky.  From there we made our way through the beautiful Grade II listed Leadenhall Market and on towards the historic Royal Exchange.

But, it was our final destination that I was particularly looking forward to visiting – the semi-derelict St Dunstan-in-the-East, dating from around 1100 and now enjoyed as a tranquil garden setting amongst the hubbub of central London.  It was a gorgeous setting to end our London engagement photoshoot as the rain decided to make an entrance as we were finishing off.

One of the amazing things about London is the incredible wealth of history and stories in every direction of your journey. Indeed, most of the other folk we met on the streets that afternoon seemed to be on guided Jack the Ripper excursions!

The other thing I should mention is that Paula battled on heroically throughout and never stopped smiling despite suffering from a rather nasty ankle injury.  As you can see, Oliver happily obliged by giving Paula a piggyback to ease the pain resulting in one of my favourite shots from the afternoon.

I had such fun with Paula and Oliver on their London engagement photoshoot and I can’t wait to be their wedding photographer at the beautiful St Etheldreda Church and St Audries Park in a few months time!
