Natural, Unobtrusive yet Fun, Cotswolds Wedding Photographer.

Thanks so much for popping by! (That's me under the white arrow!) I’m Ben, a wedding photographer based in the gorgeous spa town of Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. Not only do I frequent lots of amazing weddings around the idyllic Cotswolds, I also travel the length and breath of the UK and have been known to hop on a plane or two to cover weddings around the world.

I’ve candidly captured weddings for over 16 years now, and simply love a good wedding. Where else do you get all your favourite people together? It’s this fun, loving environment that I absolutely thrive on.

Photographing someone's wedding is a honestly a privilege. It is a momentous occasion and with over 16 years of experience under my belt I have gained a thorough understanding of the importance of not only providing images that exceed expectations but also the impact that I, as a photographer, have on your special day.

My style is to photograph your wedding day as it happens, not to take over and get on everyone’s nerves. I'll capture the fun happening around you, yet I won't be in the way. Blending in is what I'm all about! We've all heard of so many stories of couples who have missed their champagne reception and not had a chance to chat with their guests because their wedding photographer has taken them off for hours for lots of poses.

Instead, I like to steal couples for small portions of time (5-10 minutes) during a few parts of the wedding day. That way your guests won’t notice that you’re gone and you'll probably be thankful that you get a little alone time. Rather than get you to pose for photos (most people hate this right?) I'll let you both spend that important time being yourselves, meaning I get natural pictures of you both.

I do often get asked to take a few formal-ish group shots (totally up to you), this should take no more than 15-20 minutes, with the majority of the time photographing the fun at your party! That way I will capture the essence of your day and in years to come you will look back on those individual moments fondly.

As the day unfolds I will always be there, but not be there...if you know what I mean! Sometimes photographing things close to you and sometimes noticing and photographing things afar.

While, obviously, I think photography is quite important, it’s only one aspect of your whole day.  It’s about celebrating your commitment and the merging of two families together into a new one.  You probably have guests coming from around the world to be there on the day and I want you to have plenty of time to see everyone - I will essentially capture this in a natural documentary style way, with my fly on the wall approach. After all natural photos are the best.
