Dorset Wedding Photographer

Get creative, natural, and modern, stylish images.

We are Mark and Sheila and we started Cornwell Photography to help engaged couples, like you, to create an album they will enjoy looking at for the rest of their lives without turning their wedding into a photoshoot.

With 12 years experience in this field, I've had the incredible opportunity of helping many discerning couples get fabulous images of themselves and their guests and the details of their wedding.

We are based near Weymouth in Dorset but I photograph weddings and portraits across the south. I do weddings that are big, small, micro, same sex. I cover Dorset, Devon, Somerset and Wiltshire so whether you're in Dorchester, Blandford Forum, Poole, Bornemouth, or my old home of Basingstoke in Hampshire I've got you covered.

How can I help you?

  1. Need help working out your essential family groups?
  2. Unsure what the differences are between different styles of wedding photography coverage you hear about?
  3. Need help deciding exactly how much coverage you need for your articular wedding day? Learn the various options that I offer to suit all occasions.

My approach to weddings is to be calm, discrete and make each picture count - I won't be rattling off shots like the papparazi! So if you want a photographer that records things 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. That's me.

Daniela & Simone

Mark is extraordinarily talented and makes people feel at ease. He helped make our wedding day extra special and captured some truly emotional photos without being intrusive. A lot of our guests commented on how thorough and professional, yet friendly he was.
Thanks again for gifting us with such precious memories.

Rhian & Russell

Mark was the photographer at our wedding and I cannot recommend him highly enough. He is extremely professional and personable. He was possibly the most organised person in the whole event and was always easy to contact during the run up to the wedding. His technical experience was impressive and, on the day, he was wonderful at advising people on how to pose and in arranging groups for photos. The photos themselves were imaginative and beautiful. Several wedding guests commented how brilliant he was both on the wedding day and after they had seen the photos. He has a wonderful eye for detail and took fantastic photos of flowers, rings, etc.

Lindsay & Robert

He offered helpful advice and made sure the day was all about us.

The second of my sneak peek previews for this week-end’s weddings. I’ve done some sunny weddings but this one was a cracker. I think anyone who didn’t have a hat and/or suncream on got “toasty”. I rather wanted to title this one: “trains, planes and automobiles” but as there wasn’t a train (ok there was) … Read More

Here’s the first of two sneak peaks from this week-end’s weddings.
