There’s something magical about Wiltshire that makes it the perfect location for a wedding.

So, where better to have your wedding.
As a busy Wiltshire wedding photographer, I am lucky enough to have become experienced at shooting wedding photography at the best wedding venues in Wiltshire. Whether it is in Salisbury, Devizes, Marlborough or even Swindon, I love capturing the magical memories and the story of your wedding day that you can look back on for years to come! Couples are literally spoilt for choice with an abundance of stunning venues including stylish country houses, beautiful barns, luxury hotels and castles all of which serve as the best backdrop for amazing wedding photography.

Planning your Wiltshire Wedding
You’ve probably found this page looking for a wedding photographer near me or a Wiltshire Wedding photographer so I hope to be able to help you decide and make the right choice for your wedding.
Wiltshire is scattered with pretty ‘chocolate box style’ villages like Sherston, Avesbury and Lacock to name just a few. Many of them with pretty canal and riverside locations that are dotted with fishers and canal boat enthusiasts. Then there’s Longleat with its famous safari park or the incredibly photogenic world-famous gardens at Stourhead.
With such a stunning rural backdrop it’s no wonder that Wiltshire has always drawn outdoorsy types looking for fantastic locations for walking, cycling, horse-riding and fishing. It’s an idyllic rural setting and vibrant city that makes Wiltshire a popular county for festival organizers with celebrations of arts, music, literature and food.
One of the many things I love about being a Wiltshire wedding photographer is that it is beautiful all year round. Spring blooms, summer’s hazy light, autumn’s explosion of colours and winter’s moody skies can all be used to create beautiful, romantic and timeless images. Wiltshire is a county for all seasons meaning that your wedding really can’t be spoilt by the weather. This results in allowing me as Wiltshire Wedding Photographer to capture stunning photos and those little moments that you will treasure.
My Wedding Photography Style
Its so important to consider the style of wedding photography when choosing the best wedding photographer to capture your special day. My style is a fusion of traditional, portrait and reportage, I find this creates a perfect blended approach to capturing every part of your day so you get a real mix of unique and epic photos. From the candid moments between you and your wedding guests through to atmospheric portraits of you both I combine these to perfectly capture the excitement of your day. For me, making sure you both enjoy your day, feeling relaxed that you don’t need to worry about your wedding photos. As an experienced Wiltshire Wedding Photographer, I have many years of built-up knowledge and skills to expertly tell your story. My packages all cover All Day coverage, from the Getting Ready preparations in the morning right through to the first dance and evening party late into the night! For those couples wanting every angle or moment to be captured, I highly recommend adding a second photographer to your package which allows me to work as a team and ensure that groom preparations and additional candid and magical moments are captured.
Why Wedding Photography Is So Important
Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. As a Wiltshire Wedding photographer, I will capture every detail and essence of your wedding day in a way that is artistic, emotional and timeless. You don’t want to have a bad experience with the person who is going to be photographing you, your family and friends on your special big day. You want them to capture the emotion and feeling of your special day, and you also want to have beautiful photos that you can look back on in the future. After the cake has been eaten, the dress has been worn your photos are all that are left to look back on and feel the love and joy you felt on the day. After all, photos are forever! Your photographer should be someone you trust and someone who will make you feel at ease in front of the camera.
How Much Does Wedding Photography Cost?
You are probably at the early stages of your wedding planning so figuring out how much to budget for a wedding photographer, considering this is most likely your first time getting married , choosing how much to set aside in your budget can be daunting. What’s important is to first look at several photographers whose style you like and then figure out what your budget is. It’s also important to work out how important photography is to you on your day.
Putting together your wedding budget initially can be quite confusing. To help you out, I have a fantastic blog which provides you with 5 great tips on putting one together, plus an added bonus includes a downloadable spreadsheet to help you put it all together which you can check out on the link below.
Although I may be biased, I believe wedding photography should be one of your largest priorities you have, probably more so even than your wedding venue. My All-Day wedding photography packages are competitively priced to suit the middle range of wedding budgets and being that I don’t have hours in my packages, it makes things a lot easier rather than worrying how many hours you need to book me for. Plus my 2 most popular packages include not only an engagement shoot but also a wedding album to truly tell the story of your day. My wedding photography pricing page goes into more details on my packages and services I offer.
What you will get from me as your wedding photographer?
So why should you book me as your Wiltshire wedding photographer above others you have shortlisted. As you might be unsure on how to choose I want to make it super simple as to why I could be your perfect choice.
Firstly, if you love my work and my approach to wedding photography that’s absolutely brilliant news and I would love to talk about your plans. Choosing a photographer’s style is so important so if my style suits what you are looking for then I think we could be a great match!
To me, your not just another wedding couple! I only take on a limited number of weddings every year as I want to ensure I can give all my attention and care to each and every one of my couples both before and after your wedding day. My couples love the personal service they get throughout their wedding experience, I love to get to know you both as a couple so on your wedding day you can relax knowing your wedding photos are taken care of and at the end they are going to be epic!
I live and breathe photography and being able to capture weddings for madly in love couples, celebrating the greatest day of their life is both an honour and a privilege! I get so excited before each and every wedding day and I take great care in ensuring I capture creative photos throughout your day.
Couples that book with me have the peace of mind that I have backups throughout my whole process, from extra cameras, memory cards and batteries along with loads of other extras on the day itself ensuring I am prepared for everything, to backing up your wedding photos numerous times after your wedding, and also being fully insured and a member of several leading photography organisations within the UK.

On the day of your Wiltshire wedding, you will get a full range of photos, including:
Candid photos of you both and your important family and friends

What about engagement | pre-wedding | proposal photos?
If you’re looking to celebrate your recent engagement with a pre-wedding shoot or just searching for an engagement photographer, I would love to capture some fun and intimate photos of you both in some of the amazing scenery Wiltshire has to offer.
If your camera shy, this is perfectly normal (its not like you have a photographer around you all the time)! Engagement shoots are the best way to get to know me and how I work in my relaxed and natural style and every couple I have ever photographed has always mentioned how fun the shoot was! Most important to me is that you are both relaxed and comfortable which guarantees for the best possible photos. Two of my wedding packages include a pre wedding shoot as I feel they are a perfect rehearsal for your couples portraits on your wedding day plus it is a great chance for us to get to know one another!
Or maybe you are looking to pop the question and are looking for a photographer who can capture your proposal, what a wonderful way to capture this special and intimate moment to remember forever! I love capturing proposal shoots as there is something truly magical about them and the excitement and nerves just before you get down on one near is amazing to be captured in a photograph. Best of all, a proposal shoot quickly turns into a perfect opportunity for an engagement shoot!
