I am a Wedding Photographer, this is my job – a full time job, a vocation. I am a professional Wedding Photographer and I am passionate about it (You have to be - the average wedding week in the summer for me is a 60 hour week)

I Photograph around 30 weddings per year (
restricted) and only accept a maximum of TWO wedding per week during the peak wedding period to assure flexibility, focused coverage and fast processing of your wedding photography gallery, enhancement of the wedding proofs / originals and your handmade Italian wedding album and finished wedding photographs.

I have photographed 250 weddings - over 60 of these weddings have been abroad in Turkey, Italy, Slovenia, Guernsey and even New Zealand.

Its as important for me as the wedding photographer as it is for the wedding couple to meet and to choose the person that will be working intimately alongside during the wedding day! (I am not the 'normal wedding photographer' in that 'as standard' I will devote many days after the wedding immersed in the wedding photos, tweaking and enhancing the images building wedding galleries, creating DVDs and USB keys of all of the wedding images. When I am booked for a Wiltshire wedding, the wedding couple have also paid for my time following the wedding, so that I am able to provide all of the wedding images A true labour of love!

Its a demanding job, the wedding photographer can often be the centre of the coordination on the wedding day (between venue staff, the chauffeur, toastmaster and the wedding party - often all at the same time!) it takes skill and sensitivity for the wedding photographer to be able to do this delicately without becoming 'bossy' or 'taking over' and adding any stress to those involved.

Please see my
wedding photographer testimonials to read the appreciation I have gained from so many wedding couples

I am often asked by wedding couples , which is my favourite Bristol wedding venue. This is difficult to say - but for me, SS Great Britain, and of course photographing a weeding at Bristol Zoo!. These are all steeped in history, charm and atmosphere - whilst also embodying the elegance for being a perfect wedding venue! Bristol has so many photogenic, atmospheric and wonderful wedding venues in such famous historical towns as Bradford on Avon and Cities like Salisbury. It is a privilege to be a wedding photographer working in Wiltshire!
