Hello and Welcome!

I tell wedding stories. From the bridal preparations in the morning, to partying in the evening.  If you're looking for a photographer for your special day, you'll want to see images from lots of different weddings, indoors and out, and at similar locations and time of the year to the day you have planned. Barns, churches, beach weddings, marquees, historic, quirky... scroll down to find what you're looking for! 

Just 2 minutes to spare?  Watch my 'Best of 2021' highlights video for inspiration!  

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.

Gildings Barns Wedding | Emma & Dan

February 28, 2020  •  Leave a Comment
Rain on your wedding day? Not something most couples have on their wish list, but it doesn't have to be a negative! Social media has a lot to answer for when it comes to our vision of how a wedding should look. Occasionally (not often I'm pleased to say!) I'm sent Pinterest boards filled with sun-drenched images of barefoot brides - usually on the...

Tunnels Beaches Wedding | Anna + Kath

January 27, 2020  •  Leave a Comment
Happy New Year to all my readers! What better start to my 2020 blog than to feature Anna & Kath's stunning Tunnels Beaches wedding last August? Their wedding was so unique, that I thought I'd take the time to tell their story properly, but feel free to skip the text and head straight to the video or photos! What and where is Tunnels Beaches? Be...

TWIA 2020 | Wedding Photographer of the Year Regional Finalist!

October 25, 2019  •  1 Comment
It's been an amazing wedding season for me so far, full of awesome couples, fantastic venues and a great deal of laughter. Of course, running a wedding photography business is also a lot of hard work - contrary to what some people might think, there's a lot more to it than showing up on the big day with a camera and a smile on your face. But my cli...

Art Deco Worthing Dome Wedding | Katy + Raj

September 26, 2019  •  Leave a Comment
Sussex is spoilt for choice when it comes to stunning wedding venues and attracts plenty of London-based couples looking for something different. The short drive south is more than compensated for by the beauty of the South Downs and the sea views, not to mention ease of parking and affordable accommodation options for guests. I've photographed the...

Church & Marquee Wedding in Dunsfold, Surrey | Emma + Alex

August 09, 2019  •  Leave a Comment
I was recently asked if I photographed marquee weddings, and when looking for a ready-made blog post to send to my prospective couple, realised I haven't actually blogged one since Emily and Carl's fab wedding from 2016. I am generally invited once or twice a year to capture a traditional church ceremony followed by a marquee wedding reception at a...

Lusty Glaze Beach Wedding | Danielle + Vikki

April 30, 2019  •  Leave a Comment
Lusty Glaze Beach in Cornwall has to be one of my absolute favourite venues to travel to. Even through I'm based in Sussex, I've had the good fortune to capture three weddings on Lusty Glaze Beach in the past couple of years. Today I'm blogging my first Lusty Glaze wedding of 2018, that of the lovely Danielle and Vikki who became Wife & Wife in May...

Long Furlong Barn Wedding | Adele + Glyn

April 09, 2019  •  Leave a Comment
The first time I photographed a wedding at Long Furlong Barn was in 2014, shortly after its launch as a wedding venue. I was blown away by the picturesque grounds and stunning views across the South Downs, complete with grazing sheep and, on that occasion at least, a perfect sunset. I've since returned many times for weddings at all times of the ye...

Michelham Priory Wedding | Hannah + Ben

March 26, 2019  •  Leave a Comment
It's always a real pleasure to be invited back by a family to photograph the sister of one of your former brides getting married. Capturing a wedding from bridal preparation through to the dancefloor - not to mention the pre-wedding shoot and viewing of the wedding images afterwards - means that I spend a lot of time with couples and their families...

This lovely couple live literally just down the road from me, and when we first met to discuss their day, we hit it off immediately! They shared their plans for an outdoor picnic kind of a day, and showed me photos of their gorgeou...

Worthing Pier Wedding | Maddie + Tim

February 08, 2019  •  1 Comment
So this week I finished writing my business plan for 2019-2020! Yes I know you should write it before the end of the year, ready to hit the ground running in January, but my December and January were a tad busy. First there's the 2018 round up blogs and video to produce, which are great to get a good idea of a wedding photographer's style in under...
