These are absolutely wonderful – thank you so much. We must have sat and gone through the whole lot at least five times now, with friends/family and there were so many ‘ooh’s’, ‘ah’s’ and ‘gasps’ which is a sure sign they are a hit. We are incredibly glad we chose you to be our wedding photographer, and are delighted you were able to capture so many brilliant raw moments from the day which will help us cement those memories forever

London is one of the most popular cities in the world for weddings, with its stunning landmarks and iconic buildings providing perfect locations for weddings. Whether it is a grand wedding at a historic venue or an intimate ceremony in a trendy hotel, London offers a wealth of stunning locations to chose from.

As a London documentary wedding photographer, my role is to tell the story of a couple's special day in a way that is natural, authentic and emotive. The key to successful documentary wedding photography is to capture the day as it unfolds, without interfering or staging images. This approach allows me to capture the genuine emotions and natural interactions between the couple and their guests, creating a set of photographs that truly reflects the unique personalities and relationships of those involved.

London is a city full of life and energy, and being a documentary wedding photographer here allows me to immerse myself in the vibrant culture and diverse communities that make up this incredible city. Whether I am photographing a traditional Catholic church wedding in the heart of the city, or a quirky, alternative celebration in one of London's many hidden venues, being a documentary wedding photographer in London is always an exciting and rewarding experience.
