I've been a full time photographer since I left college 21 years ago. I started working as a studio assistant in 1996, and It was one of the toughest but most rewarding 12 months of my life. I then spent the next decade as a press and sports photographer, regularly shooting hard news stories, Premiership football matches, and lots of interesting portrait commissions for national newspapers and magazines. Photographing celebrities and members of the royal family on a daily basis was fun, but would I do it again?... definitely not!

During this time I won quite a few national press photography awards, including the Picture Editors Photographer Of The Year Award and the Newspaper Society Photographer Of The Year Award.

After shooting news and sports assignments for 12 years, I then dived headfirst into shooting fashion and editorial images, alongside working as a Technique Editor on photography magazines. 

My style of wedding photography is honest, emotional, and fun. I combine all these elements into a collection of memories that make up a photographic story of your wedding day, so you and your family can cherish them forever.

I live in a cute little village on the edge of Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire with my wife Clare, our son Jesse, and our fat and over-attentive black cat Bailey. I'm available to cover weddings anywhere in the UK and beyond. I love destination weddings and have shot couples getting married in Italy and France in the past year.

Clare runs her own letterpress business, Rubyblue Design. So if you're looking for cool, bespoke wedding stationery, get in touch with her now... her work is amazing!

If you've looked through my images and thought "Yeah, this is the kind of photography I want for our wedding!" then we'd really love to hear from you.
