Hello and Welcome!

I tell wedding stories.  I use my creative eye to perfectly capture the bridal preparations in the morning, to partying on the dancefloor in the evening. And everything in between.  If you're looking for a photographer for your wedding, you'll naturally want to see images from lots of different weddings, from each part of the day, and at similar locations and time of the year to the day you have planned.  Well, you've come to the right place.  I don't have time to blog every wedding, but I keep this page updated with a good selection.  Barns, beach weddings, marquees, country manors... you'll find it all here!  Plus a few pre-wedding shoots into the bargain.

The quality of my work is recognised by the prestigious Master Photographers Association, but more importantly, by my clients, whose wonderful feedback you can read here.  Please take a look at some of my recent work and do get in touch - I'd love to hear from you.

Pangdean Old Barn Wedding | Jemma + Dean

February 20, 2018  •  Leave a Comment
It's not uncommon for a couple to tell me at a wedding fair just how totally un-photogenic they are, and how much they're dreading their wedding photos. But Jemma and Dean were quite possibly one of the most camera-shy couples I've ever met! That said, the photography was for them a really important part of their wedding, which was to be held at Ho...

Long Furlong Barn Wedding | Bryony + Chris

January 26, 2018  •  2 Comments
I love talking wedding photography (I met with up with a photographer friend in Brighton this week, and we talked about nothing else for 4 hours!) So when I first met Chris and Bryony I was extremely excited to learn that Chris knew a thing or two about photography. I probably talked way more than I should have done, but when I get asked the kind o...

My Favourites from 2017 | The Colour Edit

January 04, 2018  •  Leave a Comment
Hello and a very Happy New Year to all my readers! If I found it difficult choosing my favourite 2017 Black & White images for my last blog, that was nothing compared with selecting the best colour images! In fact, for many of the photos I chose, there were at least 3 others I could have picked - and on a different day, probably would have! After...

Arundel Town Hall Wedding | Tuesday + Joe

December 07, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
I remember really clearly first meeting Tuesday and Joe - it was at a Belles Events Wedding Fair on Valentines Day at The Dome in Worthing. Tuesday's (then) ten year old son was with them, and I remember commenting on their striking blue eyes. We talked about their Arundel Town Hall wedding, which was to be an April ceremony for about 40 guests, wi...

Brighton Town Hall Wedding | Claire + Mark

November 17, 2017  •  1 Comment
I've really enjoyed all my Brighton Town Hall Weddings! For a start, the architecture inside the early 19th Century Town Hall is stunning. But for me, a Brighton wedding photographer who loves the sea, it's the fact of being a short amble over to Brighton beach and Pier that makes this such a great location for a non-religious ceremony. So when Cla...

Worthing Dome Wedding | Sarah + Jason

September 26, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
I've come to the conclusion that blogging is a bit like exercise - you miss a week or two for lack of time, and then another week, then another, and before you know it, it's been a month or two and it's hard to get back into the habit. The problem is, when you blog and then don't blog, it looks to the casual observer like you haven't got anything t...

Long Furlong Barn Wedding | Holly + Martin

Here I'm showcasing the couple's equally fun and relaxed wedding, which was held three months later at picturesque Long Furlong Barn in the heart of the Sussex Downs. It's a venue I photograph weddings at regularly and at all times of y...

Nymans pre-wedding shoot: Holly + Martin

July 12, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
I first met Holly and Martin at Nymans National Trust near Haywards Heath. We talked through their plans for their upcoming December wedding at Long Furlong Barn, and I showed them sample albums of my work. I seem to remember there was homemade cake involved too - always a bonus! I felt that we hit it off straight away and would make a great team o...

Devil's Dyke Pre Wedding Shoot: Tara + Ben

June 07, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
When I first met Tara and Ben, I knew instantly that they were perfect for each other! Many of my grooms are naturally a little uncomfortable about being in front of the camera, but not Ben! A former model, Ben was a complete natural, and his obvious love for Tara shone through on their pre-wedding shoot with his permanent ear-to-ear grin and affec...

Plumpton Green Church + Marquee Wedding | Emily & Carl

May 18, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
I've been longing to blog Emily and Carl's beautiful Sussex country wedding, and with the design of their wedding album currently in hand, what better time to do it? I first met the couple at Emily's parents stunning home in East Chiltington, just outside Lewes. We clicked immediately, and sitting in their kitchen, pouring over my portfolio, it fe...
