Real Moments, Stunning Portraits

fun, unobtrusive wedding photography in nottingham and beyond

Hi, I’m martin

This is the bit where I tell you I’m an award winning, friendly Nottingham wedding photographer who is going to blow your socks off with my amazing photos! But that kinda goes without saying, getting beautiful photos is kinda a given right?

My goal is to capture REAL memories you’ll cherish forever! If you’re are after a bog standard wedding running through a checklist you found on Pinterest then I’m not the right guy for you.

Instead my camera will give a unique glimpse into all those special moments that make up YOUR big day. From happy families gathering for pics, to stunning portraits you’ll hang on the wall. I’ll be there to capture all of them.

I want you to enjoy your photos in decades to come and for your heartstrings to be tugged every single time you flick through your album!

Your wedding day should be the best day ever. The party that your friends and family will sing songs about in years to come. So you want a wedding photographer who isn’t barking orders, trying to complete a ticklist of ‘must have’ photos. At the same time you want to look gorgeous on your wedding day right? If that sounds like what you’re looking for then I believe I’m a good fit for you. I’ll make sure you get some beautiful timeless photos that you and your family will cherish forever! But that usually only takes me 15 minutes on the day. What are we going to do for the other ten hours!?! Well, that’s when the real fun begins! I love nothing more than blending in, camera at the ready, to capture the unscripted, unexpected, and utterly fantastic moments of your wedding day.

my approach in a nutshell…

natural, storytelling images

All you need to worry about is experiencing the magic of your wedding day! I’ll be there like a camera-toting ninja, silently taking photos without disrupting or staging moments.

Your family and friends will share tears of joy and laughter throughout…and those candid snapshots? They’ll barely know I’m around.

Getting your family all dressed up and in one spot for a photo gathering is no easy task, but I’m here to help make it as stress-free an event as possible! While natural photos are always preferred, I totally get that every family needs a few of those classic portraits with everyone looking spiffy on their mantlepiece. So let’s keep granny happy too!

When it comes to your wedding day, I just need about 15 minutes to make you look like you’ve walked straight out of a Vogue bridal special. Don’t fret, I won’t be asking you to pull off the latest TikTok dance challenge or strike a professional pose. All I want is to capture the natural fun, laughter, and connection between you both. Easy peasy!

for when only the best will do

Your big day deserves nothing but the best of everything, and that includes the photos! With more than a decade’s worth of snapping under my belt, I’ve played paparazzi at the finest wedding venues in Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire.

Tying the knot at Swancar Farm? Been there, done that. Hazel Gap Barn? Oh yeah! Norwood Park? Sure! Grangefields? You bet! You can trust me, I know the ins and outs of these places like the back of my hand, and exactly where to nail those epic shots that will bring back magical memories for years after the “I dos”.
