What do you want from your wedding photography?

Your wedding will be full of love, passion, excitement, and joy, and capturing your wedding memories is probably important to you!

You're likely to want the story of your wedding day recorded, as it happens, informally, and elegantly. Your album will be a beautiful record of the day you gave your heart to the one you love: all of the magic, all the little moments, from start to finish.

What kind of a photographer do you want?

Often the images that couples tell me are their favourites are the smiling ones: often smiles that they didn't see at the time. Happy smiles. Thoughtful smiles. Giggling smiles. Screaming laughs. Nervous smiles.

I call myself The Smile Collector because that's what I do.
Mark Cornwell - the smile collector

You probably want a photographer that records things quietly and without a fuss. Someone that can sort out the group photos fast. Someone that knows how weddings work. Someone that can fit easily into your wedding.

My job is about more than taking photos though. I'm there for you on the day: I've been called the last boy scout! My sewing kit has been pressed in to service to fix waistcoats, pin zips on dresses, and adjust straps for bridesmaids. Paracetamol for that wedding day headache? Tick. Lighter for that smoke you're not meant to be having but...? Tick. We've fetched shoes and fixed shoes (who would have thought that superglue would be needed at a wedding!).

Have a look at my testimonials page to see what my clients say about me.

Meet my secret weapon!

SheilaThis is my wife, Sheila.

You will meet Sheila when I do your wedding: you might see her at a wedding fair; or meet her at the initial consultation; you might see her if she is assisting me on the day; or taking photos if you book a second phtographer (she isn't always my second photographer but usually is); you might see her if you have a review session after the wedding. Somewhere along the line you are going to meet her.

We look forward to talking to you about your wedding plans and helping you to create your own family heirloom album telling your wedding story.

Studland Bay House – and a wedding dress at low tide

Do you have days where suddenly “everything comes together”? Fabulous aren’t they?! I was having a discussion with  Vanessa Mulholland of The Dining Co a while ago. I’d met her at a wedding fair and we were going to get together to chat and take photos of food. That’s how it started anyway. A sudden … Read More

I’ve been itching to post this set of images up for ages and it’s just not happened (for a whole lot of valid reasons… excuses…). Hot on the heels of the shoot that I did at Minterne Gardens, that I blogged about a few days ago many of the same team were involved in another … Read More

Why you should print photos and why a wedding album is important

Why you should print photos and why a wedding album is important

November 20, 2017

Do you get your photos printed? Really? Or do you simply tell yourself that you’ll get some printed soon? I know I’ve spoken to couples a few years after their weddings and they’ve confessed that they never did get images printed off. Guilty! Yup, I’ve got family photos that I still need to get printed … Read More

Ask me about your wedding!

The simplest way to reach me is to fill in whatever details you can on the form below to tell me about you and your wedding. I will then try to ring you or email you.

Please double check your entry – sometimes folk fill in this form and when I try to ring them it is a wrong number, or I email them never to hear from them again. Remember to check your SPAM folder too just in case my response goes there. If you don’t hear from me please try again in case the interweb has eaten it!

  • Please give your mobile phone number with no spaces. It will blank itself out if you don't type all the digits!
  • If you have a land-line phone number please give it in case I have a problem reaching you on your mobile phone. (No spaces as per the mobile phone number above.)
  • For wedding enquiries please tell me the date of your wedding and which venues you are going to if you already know these details.
  • Please note: when you send me a message to ask about photography I tend to add you to those that get my newsletter.
    If you don't want me to do that just say in your message to me or unsubscribe when it arrives.

If you would rather just email me or phone me:

  • My landline is the best number to reach me on. Ring between 9am and 7pm weekdays on 01305 568 089.
  • If you prefer to text or to ring me on my mobile phone then call me between 9am and 7pm weekdays on 07880 76 1966.
  • Email me on images "at" morethanaphotograph "dot" com (replace the bits in quotes as you would expect that's just done to hide it a bit from web bots).

Please note I am putting these details here for genuine potential clients to contact me and not for speculative marketing calls. Thank you.
