Dorset wedding photographer



Here are a few of my favourite wedding photos for you to see, they were taken in Bournemouth, Dorset and the surrounding areas such as Christchurch, Poole and Wimborne. Remember you can view complete weddings on my featured weddings page.

Wedding Photographer

I enjoy thinking outside the box with my wedding photography and creating shots with a bit of fun, a lot of laughter and of course capturing the relationship between the Bride, the Groom and their guests.

In Bournemouth and the wider Dorset area, we are incredibly blessed with stunning landscapes and beautiful scenery which are great to feature within the day’s wedding photography as much as possible. I also work with some of Bournemouth and Dorset’s best wedding venues, their interiors as well as their locations all provide perfect opportunities to take some really stunning wedding photos.

Wedding photography very much requires working in the minute to capture those little details that make a wedding unique – like with the butterfly shot featured above, very often if you blink you miss it. I really love this aspect of my job – it’s fun, it’s creative, it’s working with people in a really beautiful part of the world – what’s not to love?!

I am happy to meet with all prospective wedding couples to discuss your requirements in more detail, and for you to view my wedding photography portfolios. You can contact me via my contact page or simply give me a call or text on 07814 720 258 (remember to leave your wedding date, so I can check my availability).
