NORFOLK WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

 

TIMELESS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY, UNBOUND BY TRENDS

I believe that every bride and groom deserves authentic photographs on their wedding day that not only reflect who they are but also the relationships with the people who love them the most.

I’ve been lucky enough to have photographed over 300 weddings and  had the privilege of photographing couples in some amazing locations. From traditional barn and country estate wedding venues in Norfolk and Suffolk to the iconic lakes of Italy,  the sweeping chateau vineyards of France, epic Irish castles and even a fjord-side chapel in Norway.

My images have been published by most of the major wedding magazines and blogs and have featured twice in Vogue Italia’s Photovogue and The Times newspaper’s ‘Engagements’ .

By giving me your trust I will create a collection that not only captures the essence of your wedding day but will endure and be cherished by your children and grandchildren.

My Photography..

Evocative candid moments and timeless, natural portraiture.

Taking my inspiration from the world-class photographers found within the pages of magazines such as Vogue, Harpers, Vanity Fair and GQ I avoid fancy filters, whacky compositions and anything contrived that will date your photos.

By doing this I create contemporary images with a classic sensibility that you’ll treasure forever and be proud to share with those around you.

How I work..

Calmly and kindly with enthusiasm and good humour.

My mantra is: "It's a wedding NOT a photoshoot", meaning that your and your guest's enjoyment on the day is my priority.

From our first contact through to delivery of your photographs and album I aim to make it a simple, fun and lovely experience. I take my work seriously but not myself and I'm often told that it feels like having an extra friend present.

Let’s talk..

I want to hear all about you and your plans for the big day.

Nothing beats meeting face-to-face, it’s so important that you feel I’m the right person not just the right photographer for your day.

I also highly recommend my pre-wedding shoots in order to prepare for and feel at ease on the day.

TESTIMONIALS

Hi Simon
Matt and I just wanted to say a huge thank you for our wedding photos.

We’ve spent ages looking through them all, laughing and just trying to work out what may have been said based on the expressions you captured! We love so many of them and are just so pleased with the amount of wonderful memories we have to look through again and again. How will we ever pick ones for an album?? We can’t wait to show them off to our family and friends!
— Rachel & Matt
We can’t thankyou enough for this week and so thankful for making it so enjoyable. The photos are just superb.
I can’t tell you how much I love them and can’t wait to see the albums.
— Jess & Tom
Hi Simon,

Just wanted to say that we’ve had the premier viewing and we’re absolutely delighted with the results. It’s been just amazing to relive the day again this evening and we’re so happy to have the day captured so beautifully.
— Jemma & Simon
WOW, we love the photos! They are fantastic, we have enjoyed looking at them a lot, and our families have loved re-living the day. Thank you so much for your help on the day, I realise we hired you as our wedding photographer, but you were so helpful to have around as your experience got us into the right places at the right time on many occasions. We had such a great day, and many people have commented on how much you just blended in, made everyone feel relaxed and weren’t a “pushy wedding photographer” so I think that’s a compliment.
— Laura & Stuart
Thank you again for all you did last weekend. I do not honestly think we could have had a photographer who “fit in” as well as you did. It was as if a member of the family was taking the photos and for that I am so thankful!!
— Debbie (motb)
We looked through loads of wedding photographers but were drawn to you not only through your incredible photographic talent but also the professional and classy style/format of your website. It was great meeting you in advance to discuss our vision for our wedding day and we felt you had a genuine interest in getting to know and understand us as people. On the day itself we felt relaxed and often forgot you were there (in a good way)- guests have also since commented on your ability to ‘be everywhere at once’ and your friendly personality. Thanks a billion.
— Victoria & Alistair
Thank you so much for our photos...THEY ARE FABULOUS! We got them today and haven’t stopped looking at them yet! They are truly lovely and capture the atmosphere of the day - we won’t hesitate to recommend you.
— Amanda & Stephen
