Creative, Natural Wedding Photography in the Lake District

I’m primarily a documentary style wedding photographer which means I have a very natural approach to capturing your day. I’m not interested in fake grins or posing people. My aim is always to capture how your day feels not just how it looks, by photographing moments that have real meaning. I’m all about the laughter, the joy, the tears and the personalities and really photographing the character of your day. That’s not to say I won’t make some beautiful creative portraits, which I love doing,  but these will also be done in a very natural way.

I also won’t take you away from your guests for a long time for group shots. Of course, I always include group shots if you would like, but I get these done quickly and efficiently so you can get back to chatting with your guests.
