Cannot recommend highly enough!
Professional and reliable, true artist
Wonderful - highly recommended
Couldn't recommend enough!!
Having set these unenviable challenges, I can confirm that Mark (and his assistant Caven) not only rose to the occasion but smashed it out of the park! Mark has the unique ability of making sure we got all the wedding checklist photos without ever making it feel forced or that we were missing out on anything. And as amazing as the group photos were, our favourite shots are the natural ones, it's the classic cliche but the day does indeed go by in a blur, and these photos really helped take us back to some of those most memorable moments.
Hopefully it goes without saying both my wife and I couldn't recommend Mark enough!
Absolutely incredible, we hit the jackpot with Mark!
We got in touch with Mark after reading all the reviews on Hitched, and we were delighted to find he was available on our date (July 2022). It was the first time he'd been to our venue, but he navigated it perfectly - everything from the getting ready shots, the ceremony, group photos, and shots of us as a couple all turned out A++++++.
We thoroughly enjoyed having Mark and his assistant Cav with us at the wedding, and we really appreciated their cheerfulness all day with the long hours. The reviews are glowing for a reason, we are truly grateful and feel like we hit the jackpot for sure!!

Wedding February 2022
Memories you will treasure
So many of our guests said afterwards how impressed they were with Mark’s manner, friendly and relaxed yet commanding enough when needed to shepherd a very big crowd to where they needed to be. No forced smiles on his watch!
You get an amazing selection of photos as part of the finished product, both online and in a beautiful presentation box (a very fancy memory stick). We’re just looking into getting a book made and couldn’t be happier with the end result.
York House Wedding - Oct 2021
On the day Mark was super prompt, capturing everyone arriving. During the service we hardly noticed Mark (in a good way), but post ceremony in the site gardens Mark was fun and friendly with all our guests, whilst directing positions etc for the different family shots we'd requested. This was especially impressive owing to the gardens being a public space, and us having limited time to work with.
We received an initial 5-6 taster shots via email not 3 days after the wedding, with the remainder arriving a few weeks later, both as an online gallery and via USB in a lovely presentation box - a nice touch.
A lovely chap, highly recommended.
Mark will capture your perfect day, perfectly
He's punctual with his replies, speedy with his turnaround and will do everything he can to capture your perfect day, perfectly.
It's been a pleasure, not only looking back on the pictures he took, but being able to share them with our family and friends. Mark captured beautiful moments of my nieces, friends, parents - and of course, us. I can't thank him or praise him enough for his amazing work.
