A Natural and Informal Wedding Photographer – for natural and informal couples!

If you’re looking for someone to tell a beautiful story of your wedding, a photographer who is unobtrusive, courteous, friendly and also fun on the day – perhaps someone who, in addition to photojournalism skills, has the experience and personality to stage groups beautifully and naturally – then I do hope you’ll take a few moments to have a look through some of my work.

Thanks so much for looking – I hope you’ll enjoy the photography on this site!


Please don’t worry about your wedding photography deposit being lost as a result of changes in coronavirus policy.

Let’s hope we’ll be okay soon, but if you find after booking your photography with me and paying a deposit, that your venue is unable to host your wedding due to government coronavirus restrictions, your photography deposit will still be safe.

As long as I’m still available on your revised date, I will always be flexible and happy to transfer your booking. However if I’m already booked on your revised date, then your deposit payment to me will be refunded.

Additionally if I’m not available and you need a bit of help finding a replacement, then I would always be more than happy to do my best to help you find someone suitable.

“We just wanted to say a huge thank you for being at our wedding to capture all the special moments. You were so discrete and professional throughout the day but also helped to make us both feel at ease in front of the camera.

Everyone at the wedding commented on how nice, calm, organised and professional you were. We knew you were the right person for us but having you there was far more than what we had ever imagined.

We can’t thank you enough.”

“Thank you for our wonderful photos, they look fantastic and we can’t wait for the the USB x

From the moment you arrived at my parents’ house in the morning you set all my bridesmaids at ease.

Half of the photos I have seen I didn’t even know you were there. I love the unposed ones.

You have captured some lovely moments throughout the whole day which Scott and I can look at and remember that wonderful day.

Thank you for being so calm.”

“Thank you for doing such an amazing job with our wedding photos.

I was filled with confidence throughout the whole wedding process due to your organisation and professionalism. You helped me feel so relaxed on the day as you took control and remained laid back – all our guests commented on how friendly you were.

Our finished photos are edited perfectly and we absolutely love every single one!

We are so grateful for everything you have done and would highly recommend you to every future bride and groom!”

The engagement photoshoot was fantastic, we loved the photos and it was great to get to know you better before our wedding.

We are over the moon with our wedding photos, they are so beautiful and capture the day perfectly. We will treasure them forever.”

A little bit of background

I’ve had the huge pleasure and privilege of photographing quite a few hundred weddings in Sheffield, Chesterfield, Buxton, all across Derbyshire and throughout the UK. And at some wonderful venues too, including Losehill HouseEast Lodge, The Maynard, The Kenwood, to name just a few of them. So if you’ve managed to find somewhere that I haven’t been to, it really doesn’t matter as I would always check it out beforehand with fresh eyes.

A qualified member of the British Institute of Professional Photography for some years, I represent the fourth generation of my family to work in professional photography: a family who have been in photographic processing, film making as well as commercial, portrait and wedding photography in Sheffield since 1870.
