About 1st Class Wedding Photography

I provide modern unobtrusive documentary style photography for couples who are looking for natural and relaxed images as the day unfolds with images they will treasure forever. At nearly every meeting I have with couples the number one comment I hear is that they hate posing for photos. This is so common and why my style is chosen by the couples whose weddings I have photographed. 

Rather than forced poses, I shoot the wedding as it happens and throughout the day take the couples away only for small 10-15 minute snippets away from the eyes of the guests for more personal shots giving gentle guidance and using the couples natural interaction. This method produces the most natural and stunning images, unlike stiffly posed images, and also ensures that you aren't away from friends and family for long periods of time on your wedding day.

If you are looking for natural photos of your wedding day and to enjoy your wedding day without a bossy photographer taking over your day, please ask to arrange a free consultation to discuss the packages I can offer and to view my portfolios.

Coverage area: Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Leicestershire, Rutland. Other areas can be covered subject to a mileage charge please ask for details.

I can also provide a discounted photo booth and very unique giant love letter hire. Rustic, White and Floral sets available to hire.

  • "Absolutely over joyed with the photos"
    Mandy & Richie on 13 October 2017

    Richie and I just wanted to say a massive thank you for capturing our day in such a beautiful way. We are absolutely over joyed with the photos and have received so many lovely compliments from family and friends already. People have said how discreet you were and they didn't realise you had captured them at all on film. When I saw the pictures you had taken of my dad I felt all the emotion of the day again because you captured his anguish and sorrow that showed what a difficult day it was for him but also how proud he was to walk me down the isle. Thank you once again. Not only do we have some beautiful memories but we get to relive them through your photos.
