I’m a wedding photographer in Dorset and I prefer an informal, natural style to my work, providing you with  photographs which are both timeless and authentic, as well as reflective of your personalities and style.

For me, wedding photography’s all about recording the story of your day – capturing all the love, fun, excitement and emotion as it happens – whilst enabling  everyone’s natural style to shine through.  I listen to my clients from the moment we meet right through to your preferences on wedding albums (optional).  Because you, as a couple, are at the heart of everything I do, my unobtrusive approach will enable you to relax and enjoy being photographed on the day and will give you superb images to remember for a lifetime.

Why choose me as your wedding photographer?

I will be there for you from the moment you book me until your DVD of images (and album if required) are delivered…offering both email and phone support.  As well as listening to your photographic needs and questions, I can also help with the planning of your day…as I have gained a wealth of knowledge in this area over the years.  I can also introduce you to some excellent wedding suppliers who I have worked with in the past.

On your special day, I will deliver everything I say I’ll deliver and I won’t stop working until I have!

I will engender a genuine rapport with you and your family and friends, to ensure the best possible photographs are captured.

My fee for complete photographic coverage of your wedding day is £995 (bespoke quotations for smaller packages on request).  This includes my time and expenses on the day plus a DVD containing all usable images taken.  These will be cropped appropriately and adjusted as necessary so they’re completely ready for you to use.  For all day coverage, I also provide a complimentary pre-wedding shoot so we get to know one another before the day and you get used to being photographed and my style of working.  Please note that for weddings outside Dorset there will be additional travel and subsistence costs as appropriate and these may not include a pre-wedding shoot.


VENUES I KNOW WELL…and work regularly

St Giles House, Wimborne; Wimborne Minster; Athelhampton House; Highcliffe Castle; Kingston Country Courtyard; Durlston Castle; Grand Hotel, Swanage; Mortons House Hotel, Corfe Castle; Harry Warren House, Studland; St Nicholas’ Church, Studland; St Nicholas’ Church, Arne; Kingston Maurward, Dorchester.

When I’m asked to photograph a wedding at a new venue, I will always carry out a full recce with the wedding coordinator and, if you wish, you, as a couple…

I also offer a range of  albums from the fabulous Graphi studio digital storybook range – probably the best of their kind in the world (these are optional and available for additional cost).

I will deliver your images in a timely manner and they will be high resolution, without copyright markings on them.

So, if you like what you’ve seen and read on my website and facebook pages, please just give me a call or email me to discuss your wedding photography needs in more detail.  I have no doubt you won’t be disappointed if you book me…which leaves you with one less thing to think about and one more item ticked off your “Wedmin list”! 

To quote one of my recent clients, “… stop thinking and just book Starlight Photography…”
