Small Weddings & Elopements

No wedding is too small – I am available to photograph weddings of all types and sizes. Free consultations – check to see whether I’m available to photograph your wedding.

What it means to be a documentary wedding photographer – I capture what happens naturally so you can relax and be free to enjoy more of your day with fewer uninteruptions. 

My photographic style is natural and unobtrusive. The majority of my photos are taken using natural light. I try to avoid using flash whenever possible as I know it can be distracting to some guests. 

The “blurry background” effect you’ll see in my images is done by using a wide aperture and/or a longer focal length lens. I’ll often use a slightly longer focal length (if there’s space) to capture real interactions without being too distracting.


I chose to be a documentary wedding photographer because 1.) it allows me the freedom to take the type of photos I enjoy taking, and 2.) it gives my couples more time to spend with family and friends. – more about me

And 3.) documentary style photography is timeless! 

My pricing for wedding photography starts at £750.00 (all inclusive) and you can upgrade at any time. Turnaround time is between 2 to 3 weeks, afterwhich you’ll receive fully edited, high resolution digital images, with print rights included. – pricing packages

Covid-19 Updates for Weddings

Due to coronavirus, some weddings and events are being cancelled or postponed. To those affected; I will do everything in my ability to move wedding dates and be flexible with rescheduling photoshoots.

In the unlikely event that I’m unable to photograph your event (due to illness or government guideline restrictions) I have a network of photographers I can call on for help, this won’t cost you anything extra.

I will keep this section updated as this situation changes. My heart goes out to all those affected. I am offering 10% all of my photography packages for NHS staff until 2021. If you have any concerns, feel free to contact me, my email is always open.
