Your Wedding

Photographing someone's wedding is a honestly a privilege. It is a momentous occasion and with over 14 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 naturally 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.

Please take a look at the FAQs below and of course don't hesitate to contact me if you have any more questions or would like to enquire (using the button either above or below). 


  • Q. "How much do you charge?"
    A. My coverage ranges from four hour civil ceremony coverage to multi-day events. I always aim to include everything you may need in your package, including travel throughout the UK, edited and retouched digital images, an online proofing gallery and high resolution images. For detailed pricing information and to confirm your wedding date is available, please pop me an email.
  • Q. "How soon do we need to book you?"
    A. As soon as you have a date fixed, it is advisable to enquire about availability and move towards securing your photography. Weekends, particularly in the Summer months, fill up very quickly – up to a year or two in advance.
  • Q. "Can we meet you before we make a decision?"
    A. Ben will usually meet all potential clients either in person or via video link – this is a great opportunity to get to know each other and you can ask any questions you may have! We appreciate that, as a photographer, you will be a presence throughout the course of the day, and therefore couples need to be happy in advance that they get along well with you.
  • Q. "What do we need to do to secure our date?"
    A. To secure your date Ben requires a £200 booking deposit and exchange of contracts.
  • Q. "What happens if you are ill? Or need to isolate?"
    A. Good question and very current! Ben has a wealth of contacts and should the worse happen, Ben will find another photographer to photograph your wedding at no extra cost to yourselves.
  • Q. "How far will you travel?"
    A. Ben travels all over the UK & Europe for weddings (over the years he's also photographed ceremonies in India and USA!) but if you’re planning to get married further afield do not hesitate to get in touch – Ben absolutely loves to travel!
  • Q. "Do you take formal group photos?"
    A. Whilst the majority of Ben's work is reportage, if you’d like a few formal group photos, Ben's more than happy to take these for you! We always advise our couples to keep these to no more than 8-10 different groups of immediate family & bridal party – that way we should be able to get the groups done in 15 minutes and you can get back to your guests to chat, eat canapés and reception drinks!
  • Q. "How long does it take for you to process our images?"
    A. This varies depending on our workload, but you will usually receive the photographs within 2-3 weeks - just when you get back from your honeymoon.
  • Q. "Do we get the copyright to our pictures?"
    A. Speaking in technical terms, if a professional photographer takes the images of your day, the intellectual property and copyright automatically belong to (and usually remain with) them. However, with the USB of high resolution digital files we provide you with, you are given permission for unlimited printing and sharing of the images, provided they are not used for any commercial/professional purpose.
  • Q. "Do you work with a second photographer?"
    A. Ben usually works alone to remain unobtrusive and can often cover both bride and groom preparations myself. Having said that, Ben can offer an experienced second photographer if required for additional coverage throughout the day.
