I’m based in Falmouth, Cornwall, South West England where I photograph 95% of my weddings. I know from experience that choosing a wedding photographer, especially in Cornwall, can be a pretty daunting process, with literally hundreds of wedding photographers to choose from. So how do you find the one that's right for you? Your budget plays a big part of course, but go with your heart, find a photographer that connects with you and who can best tell your wedding day story. I approach weddings in an unposed, storytelling style with a collection of images that each time you look at your wedding photos, it all comes flooding back.

I’m drawn to happy, and weddings are full of them; laughter and interactions, colour and the fun; creatively photographing the rollercoaster of moments and emotions without any posing, capturing they day as it happens naturally (I truly believe they make the best photos), leaving everyone to be themselves and enjoy. So if you’re looking for a wedding photographer to capture your wedding day story naturally, whether here in Cornwall or further afield, I'd love to hear from you. The easiest way to find out my wedding photography availability and ask me any questions is to contact me using my wedding enquiry form

If you’re looking for a discreet, artistic and creative photographer, with the ability to capture emotional and hilarious moments, then look no further!! Getting the photos back revealed so many amazing moments and were simply a joy to go through..again and again. We had a large venue so coverage was a concern however Mark managed it perfectly, getting a great balance of locations as well as capturing specific requested moments. Marks a lovely guy and it was a pleasure having him there on the day to help us capture the day!
