Brighton Wedding Photographer
Based in Sussex I’m available as a Brighton wedding photographer and love to shoot in this part of the world. I want to tell the story of your big day by capturing it in a way that reflects your unique personalities. Formerly a documentary cameraman with a natural and beautiful style, if you’re getting married by the seaside in Brighton I’d love to hear from you.
Ranked amongst the UK’s top 50 wedding photographers, I’ve developed my own unique approach blending modern portraiture with a spontaneous reportage-style shooting. This combination allows me to capture beautiful meaningful and frames, bringing out the true personalities of the bride, groom and their bridal party.
With years of experience around Brighton and East Sussex, I’m able to blend in on the day. This personable approach quickly puts guests at ease when I’m taking pictures of them, enabling them to focus on the wedding. Relaxed people who are comfortable with the camera make for the best subjects, which is why this natural approach produces gorgeous unstaged images, packed with personality. Having shot nearly 500 weddings I pride myself as being unobtrusive but still managing to get right in the thick of the action at the decisive moment. I’ll always be friendly and approachable, enabling me to fit in and capture the details as they unfold without getting in the way.

So you’re getting married in Brighton? Congratulations!
Tying the knot in Brighton is something extra special and every couple should consider the wonderful opportunities here. I live barely a 10 minutes from the lovely Brighton beach and throughout my career I’ve worked at many great venues such as Pangdean Barn, the Grand Hotel, shooting on the pier and seafront.
Couples enjoy working with me on their big day in East Sussex as I know how to tell their story and get everybody in a relaxed mood where they can really be themselves. Documenting couple’s special days in Brighton is a real privilege as it offers many gorgeous backdrops – from the pubs and restaurants to the beach and marina, as well as the Pier and Royal Pavilion.
With the sheer variety that’s on offer here, Brighton is timelessly atmospheric yet can result in fun and quirky wedding photos with a unique twist. Couples love to reminisce many years later with their little ones and extended family so choosing a professional to capture those moments is vital.
I see myself as a reportage photographer – creating images of the truly “real”, happy and hilarious moments in a really fun, friendly way. In fact, most of the time you won’t even know I’m there as I blend in around the bridal party and guests, capturing the important elements in real time! Just have a look at my Sussex galleries to see what I mean.

From the atmosphere and lighting to all the natural elements around me such as the sun setting on the seafront or the light seeping in from the clouds over the South Downs.

Avril & Tom’s Brighton Engagement Shoot
I’ve shot many amazing weddings around Brighton, but the sunset providing the backdrop for Avril & Tom’s epic seafront engagement shoot was too beautiful not to share. After taking a stroll along Brighton pier, the couple sauntered to the beach and on to the very beautiful bandstand, illuminated by the setting sun. One of the most romantic engagement shoots I have ever photographed, the couple were absolutely thrilled with the results.
Why I love Brighton
Brighton is an amazing city that I visit on a regular basis with my friends and family. I love to watch the waves, the hustle and bustle of the busy shops and restaurants, and the creative vibe that surrounds this vibrant setting. With family in Hove, it’s just a short walk along the beach to discover the culture and colourful street murals that make up this invigorating location. From the Theatre Royal and Pride festivals, to the exquisite food and lively pubs, it’s impossible to ever get bored when I’m in Brighton!
