Weddings

Wedding photography has taken me around the UK – and to Europe too!  It is such a great privilege to be able to share your day and capture the emotions and happiness that your special day brings, not only for you but for your family and your friends too.  Photographs make such great gifts and capture memories in a way that nothing else can.

My style incorporates a relaxed, friendly and unobtrusive approach ensuring that the photography is definitely a fun element of the day.  The resulting images will capture a visual story of your special day and will serve as a keepsake to treasure for many years to come.

Don’t be apprehensive with the notion of organising a wish-list of photographs or the thought of a routine of endless interruptions and posing on the day.  I’m here to help all the way, from our initial consultation right through to the eager anticipation of receiving your images and reliving your memories of the day.

I’m professional, organised and experienced so you can be sure to take comfort in the knowledge that what is an important aspect of your special day will run smoothly and exactly as you want it to without any bossing around or upset to your guests!

Everybody’s wedding dream is different and each couple will have their own style on the day.  It’s really important to choose a photographer that can reproduce the thoughts and ideas you have – and hopefully that’ll be me!

I offer all couples a personal service which includes an initial consultation so I can get to know you and understand how you envisage your day.  I’ll also visit locations prior to the day itself, allowing me to be creative on the day.

There are several packages that I offer, all of which are adaptable to suit your needs for your day.  Whatever your your choice or budget, you are guaranteed to receive a stylish set of professional photographs that stand out from the crowd.  In addition, unlike many other wedding photographers, each package includes an unlimited number of photographs which are provided on a personalised hard drive and/or DVD.

But don’t just take my word for it!  I have had the privilege and honour of capturing couples’ engagement shoots and weddings over the last few years and I am so grateful to each and every one of them for choosing me to tell their story through my eyes.  It’s been a real pleasure getting to know all couples and their guests and here are just some of the lovely words of kindness they have had to say. . .

  • Ian was simply brilliant!  He worked so hard during the day and apart from the photos we had when we got to our reception venue, we forgot he was there he blended in so well!  We love the photos and it was so lovely to see the happiness of the day in his photos!  It wasn't just the photography that we found amazing, he helped us so much before the wedding and put our mind at ease (at least over the photo part of the day!) but he also helped us decide on what album and photos to choose when we met up over a coffee.  We had so much choice and he helped us choose one that suited us as well as helping us select the very best images (I wanted every picture in there but Sam wouldn't allow me!).  When we got the album we were completely taken aback; the clarity, colours and standard were just perfect.  We can't thank him enough.

  • From our very first meeting with Ian we knew we'd made the right decision!  It's a minefield out there choosing the right wedding photographer, there are literally hundreds to choose from when you enter those words in Google!  Ian stood out from the others though, we loved not only his pictures which were amazing, but also his versatility and flexbility on the day.  Everything was just so perfect and he got photos that we'd never even thought of, we were amazed at his creativity.  We can't recommend enough!
    Nick and Anna
  • When you're sorting your wedding out, you've got so much on your mind.  Ian took a big chunk of the hassle away when we booked him as a photographer.  He put our mind at ease when we first met and when we look back at the photos now, we still can't believe how incredible his work is.  We couldn't have asked for anything more, he's so friendly, professional and put everyone - including us - at ease.
    Jane and Chris
  • When we first met Ian we could tell he has such a passion for photography.  We first met at a wedding fair and although we saw other photographers, we were drawn back to Ian's work.  There were plenty of other more expensive photographers but they were so regimental.  Ian allowed us to chop and change to suit what we wanted (we're hopeless at organising!) and he even gave us so many great ideas, not just towards photography, but also ideas for the wedding itself.  It's clear he's got a lot of experience and although we hate being in front of the camera, we couldn't have been more pleased when we saw the special images from our day.  Would we recommend?  Most definitely!!
    Andy and Beth
  • We'd spoken to a lot of wedding photographers but so many of them seemed so desperate to sell us something.  Ian was different, he listened to exactly what we wanted and made us visualise our day and the photos we wanted before which made the thrill of seeing the photos so much more exciting!  We had a few specific requirements of who and what we wanted and Ian made sure that he got exactly what we wanted - that meant including our three dogs in pictures!  We were probably so demanding but Ian did such an amazing job, he really captured the atmosphere of the day and got some images that we didn't even know he was there for!  We've passed details on to a lot of our friends so we hope to see you again soon!
    Martin and Jemma
  • We can't thank Ian enough for the fantastic work he does. His professional, friendly and relaxed approach just made everything so much easier for us, not only on the day itself, but in the months leading up to it. His knowledge was so useful in helping us plan the whole day, his eye for detail and passion for individuality gave us the most wonderful captured memories of our special day. Everyone mentioned how impressed they were with him, he got on so well with everyone, and it was a genuine pleasure to have him there. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ian to anyone.  Thank you so much for everything.
    Chris and Rachel
