A Photographer For People Who Don’t Want To Think About Photography

You want to look back and see how your guests, family and friends were feeling, to relive the natural, unforced moments that you shared together and with everyone. You want to really feel it, the love, the laughter, the tears, and you want to hand that down from generation to generation; your children, your children’s children. I can make that happen for you. You can trust that all the photos are taken naturally. seen from a wedding guest’s point of view. You can just get on with having the greatest day of your lives.

Getting Married in Wiltshire? I have you covered.

“I love the way that Kevin manages to capture the moment in a photograph perfectly. Everything we could have asked for.”

Wiltshire, the gateway to the South West is steeped in history. Magic and mystery surround the region. It’s a fabulous place to get married. Stone circles such as Stonehenge stand on Salisbury Plain attract visitors from all over the world. You can even have a ceremony among the stones if you wish. Nearby, Avebury, a village surrounded by two rings of stones is set in the valleys and open terrain of the English countryside. The region is famous for its chalk landscape featuring white horses carved into hillsides, the most famous of which and the oldest, made over 3000 years ago, is just up the road from us in the Vale Of the White Horse at Uffington.

Don’t worry | Be Happy

No drama (apart from the family; but you can’t choose them, can you?) You can choose to have a relaxed, fun day without worrying about being awkwardly posed for “must have” wedding photos that magazines tell you that you need. I’m not trying to sell advertising to I don’t have any “must have” poses. Just relax and be yourselves, enjoy your family and friends and leave the images to me.

You can have a fabulous family celebration in Wiltshire; from its stunning landscapes with rolling farmland and beautiful historic sites managed by English Heritage and the National Trust, Wiltshire is an area of outstanding natural beauty.  Whether you have already discovered its rustic charm and ancient magical history or you have chosen Wiltshire because of its heritage sites, beautiful barns, historic stone circles and stunning countryside as a location to tie the knot, you absolutely cannot fail to be impressed by the landscapes, green open spaces and places of interest.

Wiltshire is a truly historic county where we have made our home for the last fifteen years and where I have been photographing weddings for more than ten.

From the city of Salisbury to the small historic villages which allow you to step back in time and explore the unending charm of the English culture, from heritage buildings to the beauty of the natural geographical features of peaceful parks and henges, the Wiltshire countryside will never fail to deliver that magical backdrop for your memories. That’s what you want to remember. Not the things you were asked to do but the places you were in and the people you were with.

Not all rings are made from metal. Stonehenge – a Unesco world heritage site, long believed to have been built by Druids, a group of Celtic pagans who celebrate the Solstice each year and use it as a place of worship, holding annual summer gatherings to welcome the dawn – can be used as a truly unique wedding venue.

Nearby lies the village of Avebury and, unlike Stonehenge, you can get up close and personal with the stones. It’s an ideal place for landscape photography especially early in the morning to miss the crowds.  Bring your wide-angle and telephoto zoom lenses to get the perfect pictures of this mystical and extraordinary Wiltshire village.

Feel Free

You don’t have to worry, the day is full of little moments and connections between people. Those are what create the memories They won’t be lost.

There are no “Must Have” poses, no schedule. No one looks back and wishes that they had looked at each other’s necks more. “I wish we’d stood back to back and looked at the floor.” said no groom ever. To which no bride replied “I’m glad we spent two hours away from our friends. It made the day worthwhile.”

It’s your wedding day you can feel free to go your own way, do your own thing, safe in the knowledge that you’ll be able to relive those moments and emotions again. One day sharing them with future generations who will think you were the coolest couple ever. Forget about the photography. I can take care of it.

It’s your day. Enjoy it. Every Minute.

An Authentic Wedding Experience

A wedding day is full of energy. Nerves, excitement, joy. happiness, cake, friends and family meeting for the first time since the last wedding, catching up and sharing their stories. You are at the heart of it and it’s an experience that rushes by in a blur. It’s your day and you can spend it any way you want. There shouldn’t be anyone there telling you what to do, or where to look. You shouldn’t have to pretend to be in love. You don’t need to be told to act natural. You don’t need someone swinging in and telling you what they’re going to do on your day. That they are going to make you look like you are having a great time. You can do that on your own.

Enjoy every minute

Maybe there’s a different way. A way that you can enjoy the day without being bothered by a photographer. A way that you can experience all that energy without feeling awkward. When you are relaxed and having fun you look fantastic. The laughter is real. You can feel the tears. The moments are shared with your loved ones, the memories will be remembered as they happened.

Your wedding should be remembered forever with images that truly bring joy to your heart.

Forget the photography. I’ll take care of it. You just have the greatest day of your lives.
