I describe myself as a documentary wedding photographer – I like to provide images that tell the story of the day, and capture small moments and details.
Your wedding day will be one of the most important and most memorable of your lives – so you need images that capture the love, the tears and the laughter. If you book me as your wedding photographer, I’ll sit down with you and talk about the type of images you’re looking for, your plans for the venue, important things I need to be aware of on the big day. We’ll meet at the venue beforehand and walk through your wedding, as well as talking about outdoor shots. On the day I can be there to capture the fun of everyone getting ready in the morning, or can begin the story of the day at the venue, with images of your family and loved ones arriving for the ceremony. I’ll take group shots, portraits of the happy couple, and capture all the more ‘formal’ elements of your wedding day. In addition, however, I spend time looking for the ‘informal’ moments – people chatting, sharing a joke, dancing. I try to be as unobtrusive as I can to get photographs of people in their element. And I won’t specify that I’m leaving after this dance or that dance – I’m there for as long as there are images to be created.
Some photographers see the word “wedding” and hike up their prices. They present loads of different packages with minor differences. It doesn’t need to be that complicated! I know you’re working to a particular budget, and my fees are designed to fairly reflect the amount of work I put into all of my photographs – between the time on the day itself and the time spent editing your images.

It’s often said that your wedding day will pass in the blink of an eye. My job is to capture those perfect moments and make sure you have a set of images that lets you look back fondly on the festivities. My qualifications and experience allow me to find space for those quiet moments, to control large (often unruly!) groups of family members, to know when something important is about to happen before it happens. I work tirelessly on wedding days to make sure as much of the day is recorded as possible – I will sometimes work with an assistant to ensure you have even broader coverage of the day’s events.
Editing & Providing Your Images
After the wedding itself, I’ll spend some time sorting through your images to make sure your photo set only contains the highest quality photographs. I don’t provide every single image I’ve taken – do you really want a group shot where four of the ten people are blinking or looking at another camera? – but will use my eye and experience to select the best images. The images in your photo set are individually optimised and then they’re ready for you to view! Images can be provided in whichever manner best suits you – whether in print, an album, a USB drive or even cloud-sharing!
Wedding Photography Testimonials
Before we met with Peter we didn’t really know what we were looking for; after having a chat over a coffee with him he had put us at ease and we were a lot clearer on what he would be able to help us with. From there on he couldn’t have been more helpful and patient with us. He was always able to answer our questions and requests and even visited our wedding venue with us to have a look around so we could see the best places for photographs and talk about it together. On the day, he and his assistant were brilliant. They managed to get some great pictures without intruding. We wanted a lot more action shots and people being natural rather than the traditional set pictures and they have all worked out great. We can’t recommend Peter highly enough.”
Peter took photos on our wedding day in May 2015 and we could not recommend him enough. Peter was so organised discussing with us in plenty of time what we wanted whilst making very helpful suggestions. He captured our day perfectly, really representing us as a couple and family. The pictures are amazing and it still gives me butterflies looking at them. They are like art on our wall, not posed but natural and timeless. On the day everything flowed seamlessly and we had time to enjoy our day and guests without being overwhelmed by endless photos that we have witnessed happen at other weddings. 5 star rating and service. We would come back to Peter again and again for other special events we have in the future.
My fiancé and I arranged to meet Peter to discuss our wedding. He couldn’t have been more helpful, taking time to make sure we were happy with what he could do and that we were going to have the memories we wanted from our wedding day. We had a tiny wedding but Peter had scoped out the venue and was prepared with photo ops and situations that meant we now have beautiful posed shots of the two us and our small but close wedding party; but we also some wonderful candid shots from before, during and after the ceremony that just totally bring the day back to life. The prints were just as we wanted and Peter sorted everything as we wanted. My husband and I were really happy with what Peter did for us and have sung his praises to all our friends and family.
