Wedding Photographer & Filmmaker

Thank you for finding my photography and films. I am a wedding photographer and videographer who loves to document the fun and romance of wedding days in an elegant and relaxed style. I believe that the most beautiful and meaningful wedding photography need not be complicated.

Natural Wedding Photography
& Videography

I photograph and film weddings across the UK and worldwide. Nearly half of the weddings I cover are overseas, so feel free to contact me wherever your wedding is being held.

Previous clients include top universities, literary festivals, and award-winning actors. Photographing people is what I love most of all, and my work was recently shortlisted in a National Portrait Gallery competition.

Wedding Photography For Relaxed, Stylish Pictures

I am inspired by natural light, the rich colours of analogue film, and the classic look of black and white photography. My style marries a natural documentary approach with beautiful compositions and colours.

Sometimes people ask what it’s like being photographed by me on their wedding day. Imagine you’ve handed a camera to a friend on holiday and asked them to take your picture – that’s what I aim for – simple, fun and uncomplicated. Anything else just gets in the way.

Creative, Personal Wedding Films

My wedding films mix beautiful cinematography with a relaxed, intimate feel. It’s not my intention to make your wedding look like a Hollywood movie – instead I am inspired to create a film that’s personal, creative, soulful and unique to you as a couple.

I approach each wedding with a careful eye for detail and a dedication to creating a film that reflects your story and personalities. I work discreetly, capturing candid moments and without interrupting the flow of the day.

About Me

The first good photograph I took was of Bob Dylan. It was with a simple 35mm film camera at a music festival many years ago. The picture was just a snapshot, but it captured the spirit of the day – which is what it’s all about.

Photography and music have always been linked for me as I spent many years photographing concerts and musicians for a newspaper. All through this time I was learning how to use a camera and how to photograph people and it was a wonderful way to learn.

Today I’m a wedding photographer and videographer and could not be happier. It would be a pleasure to join you on your wedding adventure and to document your celebrations.

I love to travel and no wedding is ever too far. I have photographed and filmed weddings, elopements and engagement photoshoots across the world including in Italy, Spain, France, Australia and India.

Upcoming wedding destinations include Marbella, Lake Como, Sweden, London and Ireland.

London Weddings

I am based under an hour from London and love documenting weddings in the capital. I work as both a London wedding photographer and London wedding videographer. I have covered wonderful weddings at venues such as The Dorchester Hotel, Kew Gardens and The Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park.

Many Styles and Traditions

In recent years I have had the pleasure of documenting many different styles and traditions of wedding ceremonies and celebrations. Some of these include creating Jewish wedding films, Nikah ceremony photography and pre-wedding photography.

Sanela & Mark, married at Wentworth Golf Club.

“There are no words to adequately articulate how incredible Chris is not only as a very talented photographer and videographer but also as a kind, welcoming, and warm human being. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Chris for both our engagement photography session in London and our dream wedding in Sweden. He perfectly captured the magic of both days… we couldn’t have asked for anything more.”
Elizabeth and Christopher.

“We are absolutely delighted with our wedding photographs by Chris. They are perfect and his style is exactly what we had hoped for – classically beautiful, elegant and meaningful. He has an artistic eye, amazing attention to detail and uses natural light to compose stunning photos and capture every element and emotion of our wedding. Chris also took our engagement photographs which were just as special – he is a pleasure to work with, unobtrusive with the camera and we can’t thank him enough.”
S & P, married at Sidney Sussex College.

“Chris was superb. So professional, always patient, and ultimately took the best photos of our wedding day we could have asked for. Everyone who has seen them has commented on how stunning they are. He even managed to make my partner and I, normally a little goofy looking in photos, appear serene and photogenic.”
A & K, married in Cambridgeshire.
