Fantastic photographet
Mark made our wedding day amazing. Fantastic chap who is easy to get on with. On the day Mark fitted in perfectly, and got all the shot we asked for, and more. We are delighted with all of our photos.

captured our wedding with a collection of incredible photos
mark and his second photographer took an incredible set of photos at our wedding in cornwall in september. from intimate and candid moments to natural group shots, beautiful landscape details to worrying dance floor antics, he really captured the story of the occasion distinctively and dramatically. he was an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout, really putting us at ease. the final galleries were delivered within a few weeks, while he also sent us some teasers while we were still on our honeymoon - giving us a lovely and timely reminder of our day. our only regret was that he wasn’t around for some of the other events we had planned with our guests over the weekend. very highly recommended indeed.

Awesome evening wedding
Mark was excellent. Super easy to deal with and did a fantastic job at our wedding. Especially as it was a night time wedding he had all the necessary equipment and came up with some wonderful photos and captured the moods and scenes perfectly. Highly recommended.

Mark blends into the background, but his photographs do anything but!
Mark did everything in his power to understand and appreciate us as people before the wedding, offering us a beautiful pre-wedding shoot and keeping in contact whenever we had questions. When I first looked at his gallery online I knew he had to be our photographer. The humour and honesty to his pictures were like nothing we had ever seen before, upon scrolling through I actually cried! And even with this in mind, our wedding photographs turned out to exceed my expectations. They are funny and sweet and joyous and perfect. The quality is incredible and you couldn’t meet a nicer man. The most special images are the ones captured of the band the night of the wedding. Mark even told us that he was leaving, said goodbye and everything! But he was there still, we had no idea. Mark blends into the background but his photographs do anything but!

the best day ever
mark is absolutely brilliant. he blended in so well on our day and managed to get some really wonderful photos. the engagement shoot was really great as well as it really helped us to relax in front of the camera. our photos are fantastic and we have had so many lovely comments from friends and family. they are just what we wanted and really capture all the fun we had on our day. our wedding was the best day ever and it really shows in our photos. thank you so much mark, we would (and will) recommend you to anyone and everyone!

What is your most memorable wedding?

I've loved them all.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Storytelling, relaxed, natural, creative, unobtrusive.

What about your business are you most proud of?

The amazing feedback I receive from couples once they have received their wedding photos - you can ready some on my kind word's section of my website.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Speak to a number of suppliers, not just one.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Wedding table plan made of different lego figures for each guest.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Meetup for a coffee or skype/facetime chat to discuss the wedding and get to know each other. If the couple want to book me then I send an online booking form and bank details for the 25% booking fee. Once received I book the wedding in my diary. If the couple are booking a full day then the next thing we organise is the pre-wedding shoot where we go to a location, have some photos taken and get to know each other. We speak one month before the wedding with the itinerary and any specific images such as any group photos. The next time I see the couple is on their wedding day.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

Just the two of you naturally being together...somewhere away from all the guests

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Get your wellies on, umbrellas out, and enjoy! I have a see-through umbrella which works well for photos.

Describe how you got into photography.

I photographed a friends wedding in Cornwall back in 2007 and it snowballed from there.
