the wedding


before the wedding

-Pre-wedding chat - we'll meet at least once before the day so we can talk about what matters most to you, the type of shots you want, the flow of the day and everything in between. This will usually take place at the venue so that I can get a feel of the place, but if not I will set up my own site visit.

We can talk about how you want the couple’s portraits to look, the poses and emotions that will look the best as well a couple of options of where we can shoot them. This is so that on the day, we can take these shots like a well oiled machine and you can then get back to enjoying your wedding!

-We'll walk through the full itinerary of the day and make a plan of when to shoot which photos and how - just so you don't have to worry about any of this on the day and to ensure I'm always at the right place at the right time.

-After the consultation, I’ll send you a list of shot ideas to think about and then I’ll call you around two weeks before the big day just to see if there has been any changes.

-Engagement shoots - these sessions are a fun way to break the ice and get to know one another. It will also give you an insight into how I shoot before the wedding day. Not to mention, you finally get some photos together as a couple which aren't taken with a selfie stick, which is a great bonus!


on the wedding day

-Bride prep - sorry grooms, but the wedding starts when the bride and her bridesmaids start getting ready! These are some of my favourite shots, simply for the emotions that you capture: the excitement, the nerves, the excitement again, the family reactions to the bride, did I mention the excitement?

I usually take a mix of candids with the bride and her bridesmaids along with some arty shots with the lighting and mood of the day just getting going.

-Candid - to me, every ‘big moment’ such as ceremony, speeches and first dance are just as important as the ‘little moments in between, so I'm always tuned in taking photos that reflect the energy of the day.
-Group shots - because everybody wants a photo with the happy couple! We'll plan this together before the wedding - which groups you want, when you want them and where - so you can actually enjoy being with your loved ones instead of just posing with them for a tonne of photos on your day.

- Couple's portraits and ‘couple time’ - what can sound a bit nerve wrecking is actually the only bit of quiet time you'll have with each other on your wedding day. I'll guide you into showing me all the things that reflect your happiness + relationship in that moment while I capture it all on camera, so you can go back to this memory for years to come.

-Dancing - I usually stay for an hour or more after the first dance, unless you want me to stay longer, if things don't run late because that's when things start to get crazy! I love a good dancing shot and find that it captures the fun side of the day.


after the wedding

- Editing - normally it takes me 3-4 weeks to edit your wedding photos + i really invest my time in carefully editing them individually. this involves correcting skin tones + giving life to the real colours on the day and yes it really does take a long time edit and polish those gorgeous photos!
- Delivery - you will receive a USB in the post + a private online gallery where you + your guests will be able to preview and order from a range of printed products directly from there. in your online gallery you'll be able to pick and choose which photos to hide and to share!
- Wedding album - photos look so much better printed than they do in pixels + i work with some of the best printing labs in the UK and Europe designing fine art wedding books that are literally made to last a lifetime. you can add this with your package or order one after the wedding + even better, you'll be able to create your own one directly from your gallery.


I feel every wedding is different and I will provide a package to fit your needs and budget. However I don’t want to leave out anything that’s important to you or for you to pay for something you don’t need so lets get the details sorted and take it from there….

But to give you an idea of costs for all the above which usually runs out to around 10 hours ( or 30 hours when you include the editing) I do from £575 to £1275….but for most couples it turns out at around £850.

This would include all your images polished to perfection, an online gallery, USB stick with all those images , a slideshow video set to music, and anything else I can accommodate within that timescale.

We can agree on any additional time if required.

I can also add albums at different price ranges, prints, wall art, detailed edits etc.

Fantastic pictures

Chris was brilliant, the photos are fantastic. 100% recommend using him. His years of experience shone through, he was great with both the young and not so young members of our family. We’re really impressed with quality of the photos and the speed in which we received them after the wedding. So glad we chose Chris for our big day. Great value for money too.

We wouldn't hesitate to book again!

I'm so glad we chose Chris to capture our wedding day.
I initially inquired with a few wedding photographers and it was Chris' passion for photography that stood out above others. From the get go we could see that his focus was more on getting the best possible photographs for our special day rather than trying to sell us different packages.
Chris is very friendly, professional & responsive - we really appreciated how well he communicated with us, this was important as the booking was fairly short notice.
He was attentive in that before the ceremony, he asked us exactly what we wanted and attended our rehearsal to get a feel of the venue.
On the wedding day before the ceremony, he was great at getting shots of me getting ready... we hardly noticed he was there.
Chris is very patient and flexible
- we were able to get all the shots we wanted during both the wedding ceremony and reception. We were particularly impressed with the quality of the candid shots Chris took throughout the day - he managed to capture the joy & laughter amongst the wedding guests really well.
We would like to say a big thank you to Chris for giving us wonderful wedding day memories that we are already looking back upon fondly. If you are thinking about booking with Chris, do not hesitate - you won't be disappointed!

The perfect photographer

From the day we met Chris on our initial meeting we knew he was going to be perfect for us! We had to change our wedding date and venue and Chris was so brilliant and accomodating.
On the day he arrived with plenty of time to get some extra shots that we hadn't thought of, and he managed to organise our guests to create the most perfect confetti shot.
The images were sent over to us so quickly after the day which was so exciting.
We are so pleased with everything Chris did for us and would recommend him 100%.
Thank you Chris ☺️

Mrs and Mrs Horton

We booked Chris for our wedding in the middle of covid but this made no difference to his professional standards of work. He supplied us with absolutley everything we needed and more. Following a phonecall to discuss a few details christ emailed over a list of all of his shot idea for us to go over and plan as we wish.
Our biggest fear was having to pose for pictures that just wouldn't suit us or our event to how we wanted it to be. Chris took all of this into consideration and the resulting shots were absolutely amazing. We got everything we asked for and much more.
Still can't believe we had our prints back within a week!
A genuinely kind, honest and professional gentleman who knows exactly how to make his work like like art. Thank you Chris.

Great experience

Great experience working with Chris as the photographer for our wedding. I’m not one to pose or pretend to be doing things for a photo and Chris took that on board and captured the natural elements of our day and didn’t make getting those key shots stressful or regimented

He got on really well with our families too which made us at ease knowing Chris got to enjoy the day as well!

Ps thanks for capturing my vape shots these are by far my fave!

Professional and perfect photographer

Chris was fantastic from start to finish. He was keen to understand exactly what we wanted from the get go and delivered outstanding photographs we will cherish forever. Not only was he professional but very sincere and personable. He made a great guest at our wedding and we had a great laugh with him. I’d highly recommend Chris for any occasion.

We had so many quotes but what made choose Chris was the quality of his photography and attention to the details. Sorted out our itinerary for us and he was such fun and left us to just enjoy the day. Can't recommend enough! If you are looking for a photographer....I think you have found him.

Great experience with engagement photos!

We had the pleasure of having Chris take our engagement photos, which turned out beautifully! He was prompt, polite, and professional and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera from the first shot. He also has a fun sense of humor which made it more relaxing. I had expressed ideas about having an outdoor photo shoot, and he was able to find a gorgeous poppy field as the backdrop for the shoot. My fiancé Tom and I really enjoyed the laid-back and candid approach he took by letting us do our own thing without it feeling forced, but still being able to capture the romance between us. The best part was...we had so much fun!

The pictures were beautifully edited and I felt really represented us well. Chris even made a slideshow of some of the best shots that we were able to share with our friends and family which was so nice! Overall, it was a great experience and I couldn’t recommend him enough. He's a lovely man and is very talented. Thank you Chris!
