Brighton Wedding Photography

Based in Sussex, I’m a vailable as a Brighton wedding photographer and love to shoot in this part of the world. I strive to tell the story of your special day by documenting it in a way that depicts your unique personalities. Formerly a TV cameraman with a natural and beautiful style, if you’re getting married by the seaside, I’d love to hear from you.

Ranked amongst the UK’s top 50 wedding photographers, I’ve developed my style blending modern portraiture with reportage. This combination allows me to capture beautiful meaningful frames, bringing out the true personalities of the bride, groom and all of their guests.

With many years of experience around Brighton and East Sussex, I’ll blend in on the day of the wedding. 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 over 600 weddings in my time, I pride myself on being unobtrusive in finding the decisive moment. I’ll always be friendly and approachable, enabling me to fit in and record the details as they unfold without being in the way.

So you’re getting married in Brighton? Congratulations!

Tying the knot is something extra special and every couple should consider the wonderful opportunities here. I live barely ten minutes from the lovely beach and throughout my career I’ve worked at many great venues such as Pangdean Barn, and 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 the couple’s special day in real time 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.

My photography often features in magazines in addition to wedding blogs across the globe. Please browse the galleries in my portfolio to gain an insight into my style and approach!

One key reason why most couples book me is that they feel comfortable and deliver meaningful memories of those they love. Being able to make couples happy and see them this jubilant and joyous is something I wouldn’t exchange with any other occupation in the world!

Working as a wedding photographer around Brighton, making couples happy is what drives me, and nothing quite compares to receiving an amazing email from an ecstatic couple! When I’m zipping between locations at a venue, meeting and greeting everyone, I casually mingle as I’m shooting. I strive to put the bride and groom at ease while I’m taking pictures so that they enjoy getting married to the max. I often find myself smiling as I’m capturing the action and quickly understand how much I love my work.

However, shooting your wedding day isn’t just my job; it’s an undying passion unlike any other. I also ensure that I’m framing the action from numerous angles and documenting the story with my camera in my artistic way throughout the day. I use the latest cutting-edge equipment and carry a backup kit to every wedding. As a professional photographer, I have all bases covered as the events of your big day will never be repeated. It’s essential that whatever happens on the day, I’ll deliver amazing images for you.

So what can you expect when booking me to shoot your Brighton wedding??

  • An easy-going atmosphere for your special day. Allowing everyone to relax, to just be themselves is one of the best things I can do as a photographer. I have a natural flair for mingling with people and making them feel at ease in front of the lens.
  • Humble, kind and courteous. With that said, I also respect everyone’s boundaries, never being pushy or forceful during your special day. I believe being humble, kind and courteous towards everyone is the key to creating great images that look natural and are full of life.
  • Unobtrusive. Blending in and not machine-gunning a wedding with my camera means you won’t even notice I’m there most of the time. I’m at one with the crowd and you can see this in my relaxed pictures.
  • Beautiful photographs. I’ll create stunning images for you that capture the love, excitement and intimate moments that you can cherish for a lifetime. Moments you didn’t even realise or see with your own eyes. By understanding who is who, I can empathise with your family dynamic to ensure the memories I create are significant. 
  • Telling your story in Brighton. Being a documentary photographer, I have developed a passion for telling stories through a complete series of pictures. I know exactly when to capture the candid moments or those deeply romantic and timeless shots. Knowing when to get closer and when to step back is key to my style of photography.
  • A personable, candid approach. My images are unscripted and spontaneous. The moments are real. I work to ensure that everything I do and say integrates well with the tone of your special day.

Artistic and creative wedding photos

As you can see from my galleries, I understand how artistic and creative wedding images are brought to light. 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. I’ll click the shutter at just the right moment. I take photos that retain their artistic and creative flair, preserved well for decades in the family wedding album.

I’m all about the fun and memories at Brighton weddings

Wedding photography needs to capture all the key elements – the laughs, the tears, the wide-eyed looks, people embracing and displaying their affection – everything! I have an eye for these details, ensuring that all those magical moments and memories are frozen in time for you to treasure for years to come.

Avril & Tom’s Engagement Shoot in Brighton

I’ve shot many amazing weddings around East Sussex, 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 the pier, the couple sauntered to the beach and onto the very beautiful bandstand, illuminated by the setting sun. One of the most romantic engagement shoots I have ever photographed, and the couple were absolutely thrilled with the results.

Why I love Brighton

Brighton is an amazing city that I visit regularly 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 festival to the exquisite food and lively pubs, it’s impossible to ever get bored here!
